An uncle. A child. A friend. All hear the words – you have cancer. The niece. The parents. The friend. All there beside them during the storm. It is rarely a short storm. Some last just months while others last years. In this fallen world there is a lot of pain but in this fallen world we know that God is sovereign. God is sovereign over cancer and other sickness. God is sovereign over the weather. And God is sovereign over life and death.
Our prayer for all those dealing with cancer is that they look to God for their strength. Psalm 18:1 – I love you, Lord, my source of strength.
