There are so many people hurting and scared in this world we live in. And they are all around us. Peace Family I want to encourage you to reach out to those that God has cross your path and be Jesus to them. They need him, and you, so much! You may not feel you have much to offer but God thinks otherwise and he can use you in ways you never imagined.
Today I got a call from MD Anderson’s Cancer Connection, an organization that allows newly diagnosed cancer patients to speak to a cancer survivor who was diagnosed with the same cancer that they have. It’s such an honor and reminds me of the path that each must walk when going through treatment. All I know so far is her name is Renee and she lives in Kansas. I started praying for her this morning and I will call her today. Usually they have lots of questions. They need reassurance and encouragement but most of all they need the truth. I want to be able to be a source of comfort to her and also let her see that you can survive cancer like ours. She’s scared, just like I was. I want to be what she needs right now.
I did not know about this program in 2013 when I was diagnosed. Boy, I wish I would have known. It would have meant so much to me to have someone who has been in my shoes talk to me. So I want to do unto others with Renee. I had hoped that something good could come out of my bad situation. Isn’t that just like our Heavenly Father to bring beauty out of ashes and hope out of despair?! He is a good, good Father…just like the Chris Tomlin song says. He loves you and wants the best for you and he WILL bring something good out of whatever you are going through. When he does, pass it on. Be Jesus to someone like Renee today. There are people all around you that need it!
