“What Cancer Cannot Do”

I love the attitude adjustment that this post facilitates in my own mind and heart. I know several who are still being affected by this horrible thief…maybe it will bring some consolation to your hearts today, and may the God of all peace come to you and comfort your hearts, so that through it, you will enjoy a deep, abiding friendship in Him.

“What Cancer Cannot Do”

Cancer is so limited…
It cannot cripple love.
It cannot shatter hope.
It cannot corrode faith.
It cannot eat away peace.
It cannot destroy confidence.
It cannot kill friendship.
It cannot shut out memories.
It cannot silence courage.
It cannot reduce eternal life.
It cannot quench the Spirit.

Lord, I come before you today knowing that all power is in Your hand. I know that you are the Lord and that you care for your people. Right now, my beautiful wife and her sisters are struggling with a difficult trial. I can see they are trying hard to not let their strength falter, and Lord, I know that you have all of the strength that they need.

I pray that you will reach down and touch them right now wherever they are at this moment. Let your presence fill the room where they are…

Sunday Prayer

I beg of You, my God, let me know You and love You
so that I may be happy in You.
And though I cannot do this fully in this life,
yet let me improve from day to day till I may do so to the full.

Let me know You more and more in this life,
that I may know You perfectly in heaven.
Let me know You more and more here, so that I may love you perfectly there,
so that my joy may be great in itself here, and complete in heaven with You.

O Truthful God, let me receive the happiness of heaven
which You promise so that my joy may be full.

In the meantime, let my mind think of it,
let my tongue talk of it,
let my heart long for it,
let my mouth speak of it, let my soul hunger after it,
let my flesh thirst after it,
let my whole being desire it,
until such time as I may enter through death into the joy of my Lord,
there to continue forever, world without end.  Amen.

~St. Augustine
