Battling the "C" word

For all who are in this battle:

Cancer...one word can change everything. Plans for tomorrow, plans for next week, next month, next year. Will I even be here next year you might think. What to tell those you love. What to tell co-workers. What to tell yourself.

And what to ask God. WHY ME? That is the most common question. Anger, bitterness, fear...all are to be faced over and over again.
Such a surprise you never hoped for.

He is not surprised though. He has not been caught unaware by your diagnosis. He is not fearful...He is not angry, even when you are. And go ahead and ask your questions. He can handle your emotions and He knows it does not mean you no longer believe in Him. It just means you are human...you cannot see the future like He can.

You cannot see the hills He is preparing to help you climb. Maybe because you are immobile in the valley you fear you will not ever get out of. You can trust what you cannot see...He has you under the shelter of His wings. He holds every tear you have cried or ever will cry. He will carry you when you cannot stand. Do not give up. Do not quit trusting.


This is obviously not the plan you would have chosen however He has control here...He will work this for your good.
