Something people have consistently said to my wife and I as we’ve lived as parents of children with disability is, I don’t know how you keep going. The answer to that is in what Jesus said in Matthew chapter 7 verse 24. Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock.

I am not claiming to be a wise man. All I’m claiming is that I’ve built my house on the rock. The solid foundation that Jesus Christ gives us. Hear His words, do them, and then when the storm comes, you will find that what you’ve built your life on is substantial, is unshakable. You may be buffeted by the storms, by the tempest of life, but you will not be destroyed.

We hear the words of Jesus, we read them in Scripture, we meditate on them. And then we do them. We look after the poor and the needy. We love one another. We build one another up. We spend time worshipping God. All of these things result in a life that is unshakable. It’s on the Rock.

We may be physically destroyed. We may be financially ruined. But God will always be there for us. When we put our feet down, they will hit something solid every time.

And that’s the difference. It’s not that my wife and I are strong people. We are by no means strong people. He is strong and it’s on Him we rest. That’s my testimony. I hope it’s yours, and if not, then just hear what Jesus says, do it, and be built on rock.

Thank you, God, that you are always there for us. For your children who call on your name, you always hear. Thank you that you are our unshakable God, and in you we can rest. Amen.
