4 Things I Learned From My Cancer Journey
I have always wondered how a person’s life would change after going through a life and death experience. Recently after being healed of stage IV cancer, it was time for me to reevaluate my life for change. Probably the first thing I needed to evaluate was my priorities. While being so sick my world became exceedingly small. I realized many temporal things and daily thoughts are unnecessary. Ironically, the Lord had already given me Colossians 3:2 as my focus verse for 2020,
“Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.” Colossians 3:2
As my sickness and treatments dragged on, my thoughts turned to God and His promises. I communed with Him almost constantly. As life begins to get back to “normal” my relationship with God is stronger. My dedication to my family, church, and friends is still prominent in my life but now with heartfelt thankfulness. I have a great love to serve others, and God has given me the opportunity to do that a while longer.
My daily life today is not a lot different than what it was before my trial, but eternity is in my thoughts now more than ever before. There is also a daily dependence on God, which was not as intense. My desire to witness and share salvation, especially with my doctor, is greater. There is still daily work to be done—cleaning the house, laundry, preparing meals, grocery shopping, etc., but I believe God used this trial to help me now focus on people more than on routine. Spending time with my husband, hugging my grandchildren, talking to people face to face—these are the things I missed most during my illness and now treasure more than ever.
4 spiritual lessons God taught me (or maybe retaught me) during my cancer journey:
