God can’t possibly fix our broken world.

After God promised an elderly – extremely elderly – Abraham and Sarah they would have a child, both Abraham and Sarah, well beyond child-bearing years, laughed in God’s face.

Perhaps this is where you find yourself today. If so, consider yourself not only normal, but just like “heroes of the faith” like Abraham and Sarah.
“Is this habit I’m trying to break too hard for the Lord?” Is the communication problem I’m having with someone I love and respect too hard for the Lord?” “Is forgiving the person who betrayed me too hard for the Lord?” “Is my dislike for my present job too hard for the Lord?” “Is the mess we find the world in too hard for the Lord?”
Adjust the question to your own mountain you feel as though you cannot climb.
Is anything too hard for the Lord?
Not. A. Single. Thing.
