“What Cancer Cannot Do”

My parents received a Christmas card from some special friends that shared this title and perspective below. But if cancer is not your lot in life, something else is just as formidable and threatening for the New Year.┬áReplace the word “cancer” with whatever feels overpowering, threatening, and frightening. Look to Christ who overcame all things and believe that he is Lord over all things, including the bad stuff.

“Cancer is so limited . . .

It cannot cripple love

It cannot shatter hope

It cannot corrode faith

It cannot destroy peace

It cannot kill friendship

It cannot suppress memories.

It cannot silence courage.

It cannot invade the soul.

It cannot steal Eternal Life

It cannot conquer the Spirit

We cannot understand the countless mysteries of life, yet we rest in the promise of One who does.”

May the Lord Jesus Christ bless you with peace as he ordains every trial for your future enjoyment of his grace.
