These last few weeks have been trying on the Simmons family. It seems that for almost 4 weeks straight, at least somebody in our four person home has been sick. Not uncommon. It happens to everybody, doesn’t it?
But along the way, we’ve had some moments where we felt like we were hanging by a thread. We weren’t feeling well and the girls weren’t feeling well, as evidenced by their crying/screaming/whining/etc.
As we’ve dealt with this, I’ve been encouraged by these lyrics to the song “None But Jesus” (video below):
In the chaos, in confusion
I know You’re sovereign still
In the moment of my weakness,
You give me grace to do Your will
When we are weak, struggling, haggled, or confused, God remains on the throne and he is still giving grace. This means that we don’t have to respond sinfully to the challenges we face — we can hold fast to Jesus because he gives us the grace even when it’s tough. So no matter what you’re facing, there is grace to endure. That’s good news!
