Cancer

It's been a tough couple of days around here.

My brother Ken, the only person I've ever met who is almost as funny as I am, has cancer. We don't know a lot yet. We're not even sure exactly where the cancer is hiding at this point. But we aren't scared. My brother is one of God's kids. Cancer isn't. So just that right there gives my brother a serious advantage in the fight. When cancer feels alone or tired or weak, who can it call to for help? Nobody. Cancer is on its own in its evil mission to ruin people's lives. Ken, on the other hand, is not on his own. Not even close. The one and only Almighty God, Lord of the Universe and Undefeated Champ in All Battles Everywhere Forever, is Ken's ever-present help and stronghold. He will overcome and cancer will lose and be humiliated. Let's all agree on that and tell God that we believe it.

Go here to read the story, as it develops. Go here to read more about his family.

I'll continue blogging about normal stuff, because there's no point in doing otherwise.

I've come to need (by virtue of my own life's desperations)to understand & find peace in the difference between Fact & Truth:

Medical stats, test results, blood counts= FACTS.

All things are possible with God, by His stripes we are healed, overcoming all the power of the enemy, love never fails, "Lazarus, come forth!"= TRUTH.

"...in the presence of Him whom he believed- God, who gives life to those things which do not exist as though they did; who, contrary to hope, in hope believed....he did not waiver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God, and being fully convinced that what he had promised He was also able to perform."
