I love Jordon Kauflin’s modern hymn, All I Have Is Christ. I’ve been surrounded by it lately, including during our staff devotions on Thursday.
I’m encouraged every time I hear it or sing it – he looked upon my helpless state! He suffered in my place!
And that makes this declaration hopeful rather than terrifying: oh Father, use my ransomed life in any way you choose.
We know that God chooses the path of suffering; we’ve lived it. Yet, having Christ, who suffered and died for us, puts it in its proper perspective:
For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison. . . (2 Corinthians 4:17 ESV)

Sovereign Grace, who provided this free download, also produced this short video of men singing at Together for the Gospel. I love the sight and sound of these thousands of men joining together in praise! May we dads of children with disabilities do the same, with joy and expectation that God is who he tells us he is in his word.
