Cancer is limited!
This has been my “motivational tagline” as I discerned to bring God’s silent messages to words. I was on my 2nd year of “struggling to survive” when I was offered to write Gospel Reflections by our Feast Builder Bro. Jon Escoto for our Feast Bulletin. I was still quite weak then – yet, each time I ponder, God kept me firm with His healing light & love.
BUT “AS IT IS”, sometimes we get too pained when some people tell us to STOP doing what God tells us to fulfill. At some extent we may also choose to just give-up when we’ve given much, yet some would tend to be unaware that their inclinations “not to listen with their heart” seem to inflict another round of battle to endure.
BUT THEN NO! After seven years, right at that point when I pleaded in tears that I would never want to go through that same pain again, here goes our LIMITLESS GOD, affirming to me His promise:
18 But not a hair of your head will perish.
19 Stand firm, and you will win life! –Luke 21:17-18
Our adversaries’ intolerance & persecution could be malignant — but not a speck of such malignancy could defeat us — if only we will persevere trusting God’s unbounded love & wisdom!
Our perseverance may consume us like a pencil experiencing pain when sharpened — but the words we’ve written will leave a mark because we allowed ourselves to be held in God’s hands!
I claim it Lord: “not a hair of my head will again perish” because your assurance of being in my life makes cancer limited and makes me endure to fulfill your given mission!
