What Cancer Cannot Do – Part 1

As you may or may not have known, my wife and I have been battling brain cancer for the past four months.  It has been a great struggle to balance work, care giving, and everything that we have to do in the home.  I don’t know why I have been trying to do it all by myself for so long, well, you can guess if you noticed the two year lapse in the posts, I have not been very diligent in my relationship with Jesus.

I finally remembered why I started this blog in the first place, that I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.  I am now trying to give it to God, allow Him to come in and lead us through all this.  It is a hard thing for me to do, to give up control, but I have to remember, He is the great Physician, not me, He is the great Comforter, not me.  It is all in His omniscient and omnipotent hands.

Recently, my mother-in-law forwarded me a pamphlet on 12 things cancer cannot do from the San Marcos Healing Rooms Ministry, and I thought I would share them here and to help me mediate on each one.

1. Cancer cannot separate me from the love of God.

35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 As it is written:

“For Your sake we are killed all day long;
We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.”

37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. 38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, 39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us (me) from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Rom 8:35-39

(With Christ in us, we are MORE than those things that would want to conquer us, [i.e. tribulation, distress, persecution, etc.])

He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.

1 John 4:4

This cancer may want to conquer my wife’s body or our love for one another or our relationship with Jesus, but it is not greater than God.  Through Jesus who has cleansed us with His blood and filled us with His Spirit we are more than conquers and greater than this cancer.  None of this will change the way God loves us or how much He loves us.  He is always there to help us through anything.

Jesus loves us
