It was around midnight when I walked into the living room and laid face down on the floor in the dark of night. Earlier that day, I had been diagnosed with stage 3 cancer. My wife, Joy, and two young children, Hannah and Caleb, were asleep down the hall.
I was jolted, yet numb.
I slowed my breathing and bridled my emotions. A normal question entered my mind: “Why me? I’m only 37 years old.”
The answer came quickly and in the form of another question: “Why not me? I’m no different and certainly no better than anyone else. In this world, there will be sickness and pain.”
Another minute passed; another thought came to mind...
“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble, or hardship, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword?”
“. . .or cancer?” I whispered, “Thank you, God. Nothing will separate me from Your love. Not even cancer.”
For the next year, I battled the disease and eventually recovered. The struggle was long and exhausting, but I knew that God loved me and that cancer could not separate me from His presence.
