I live a wonderful life, and I love to teach others how to live a better story, but sometimes life just doesn’t make sense. Sometimes all of the questions that you know are true about God seem fleeting at best. I have someone I care about deeply who has been diagnosed with cancer. It is too early to tell if they will be able to cure it, and her prognosis is good she says, but my heart grieves for the pain she is about to endure. The story doesn’t make sense. Why, is the only thing I can come up with.
I can give you all of the bullshit religious answers, and if you feel you have to remind me please don’t. You see I know this persons story well, and she deserves a break. Her life has been hard, and my heart aches for hers. It feels like a piece of my innocence has been stolen with her disease.I don’t do well with this stuff. Even my writing feels selfish, I just want her to be okay, but I know that we all must grieve loss. Grieving is part of the story, so I ask that you pray for my friend, and that God would find it in his heart to heal her.
My pain sneaks back to all of the memories of people I love who I have lost to cancer. My heart is heavy, and I don’t know what to do. I pray for all of you who have felt this same pain. I want to thank my good friend Lemmy for turning me on to this song. Click the link below to hear the song. It expresses my feeling betters than my writing today.
Thanks for reading my stuff, and pray for those who are struggling with cancer.
