None but Jesus...

"In the chaos, in confusion I know you're Sovereign still."

I love this lyric from the song "None but Jesus" by Hillsong. I love the truth that it rings and the hope that it brings. I can attest to this simple line being so true. No matter how crazy things are in my little bubble world, how hard times get, how much I want to just forget it all and give up and how often I feel so confused and disoriented by everything- one thing remains constant- Him. He is my constant in the chaos and the delight that I can encounter in my weakness.

Lately I feel as though my heart is weakened by situations and my spirit is depleted by circumstances and difficulties. I do not wish to gain pity in writing this- I'm just laying my heart out in honesty and conveying that which is inside. I feel as though passion and desire are dwindling and I live day to day just to go home and sleep because I am always unusually tired. I am sure that my consistant mouth pain has made a significant contribution to my feeling this way. Nonetheless, I remain weary during and after the day is over.

"In the moment of my weakness you give me grace to do your will"

My prayer remains that in my weakness, He will sustain me and supply the strength I need, not in myself, but in Him. I have the tendency to prove myself to be a strong person, hiding my true emotions and masking my feelings. Then, when I go home to my "safe haven" I often release that which is bogging me down and it's not always pleasant. So, I need to constantly remind myself to remain in my weakness and be immersed in His strength. My own strength is too weak.

"There is no one else for me, None but Jesus. Crucified to set me free, now I live to bring Him praise"

Only He has the ability to change me. There is really nothing else of solidity that I can put my trust and hope in. May my life be lived to glorify Him by bringing Him praise in the midst of my chaos.


None but Jesus

In the quiet, in the stillness
I know that You are God
In the secret of Your presence
I know there I am restored

When You call I won’t refuse
Each new day again I’ll choose

There is no one else for me
None but Jesus
Crucified to set me free
Now I live to bring Him praise

In the chaos, in confusion
I know You’re Sovereign stil
lIn the moment of my weakness
You give me grace to do Your will

When You call I won’t delay
This my song through all my days

There is no one else for me
None but Jesus
Crucified to set me free
Now I live to bring Him praise


All my delight is in You Lord
All of my hope, all of my strength
All my delight is in You Lord
Forevermore
