One thing that we fundamentally know is that we are not in control of our circumstances. Things happen all of the time and there isn't much we can do other than simply deal with it. But just because we are not in control of our circumstances does not mean that we are a victim of them either. If we want to see our circumstances change then we have to do our part to try and make things better. And, as we do, one thing we will most assuredly find is that grace is there to meet us every step of the way.
