Here’s an update on my friend whose wife is suffering through the ordeal of ovarian cancer. He just found out that the chemo was doing nothing to shrink the cancerous growth, so the doctors can do nothing except try to keep her comfortable. She is not able to talk now, but the last words she said was “I want to go home.” When questioned as to whether she meant their earthly home or her heavenly home, she said “heaven.” My friend had these thoughts in his letter, a quotation from the book “You’ll Get Through This” by Max Lucado.
“God is not sometimes Sovereign. He is not occasionally victorious. He does not occupy the throne one day and vacate it the next. This season in which you find yourself may puzzle you, but it does not bewilder God. He can and will use it for a purpose.”
Max Lucado is right. My friend is being encouraged by it. And so am I.
