It’s National Cancer Survivors’ Day today. Here is a quote that I clung to during the past 18 months of surgeries, treatment and recovery. And here’s to the thousands of survivors out there who have battled this brutality and are living life!
Jesus Christ is stronger!
Stronger than my fears about the future or my shame over a past that cannot be altered though I wish so much I could do things differently.
Stronger than my tired prayers with well-worn phrases and weary pleas.
Stronger than my need to know now, and have the trial terminated.
Stronger than the enemy of my soul who would discourage me with my own failings and disillusion me with the faults of others.
Such a simple truth – Jesus Christ is stronger.
“Stronger than what?” you ask.
Stronger than whatever would cause you doubt or discouragement today.
