TODAY’S READING

Romans 8:31-39

KEY VERSE: Paul wrote, “I am convinced that neither death nor life . . . neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” – Romans 8:38-39 (NIV)

MESSAGE

After seeing several physicians, I finally received my diagnosis. Sitting next to my mom in the tiny office, the doctor told me that the tests and consultations were conclusive. I had non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

I remember feeling a great sense of hope and determination. Fear could have taken root, but I decided that God was greater than any sickness I could face — even cancer. I trusted that, whatever the outcome, God still loved me.

During that summer of treatment, I stayed in the Philippines with my mom while I finished the last of my required college classes online. Some days were uncomfortable, while other days felt mediocre; but I pushed through knowing that each day I visited the hospital was a new day of grace and mercy.

Nine years later, I remain in remission. My journey taught me that we can choose how we approach challenges. It also showed me that the love of God is far more powerful than any sickness, doubt, worry, or fear.

When we face challenges, we can choose to see them as opportunities to remember God’s faithfulness. And if we can’t remember specific moments from our lives, we can always recall God’s ultimate act of love in sending Jesus.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

What is one way God has been faithful in my life?

TODAY’S PRAYER

Dear God, thank you for your unconditional love. Help us to remember your faithfulness when we face challenges. Amen.

PRAYER FOCUS

People with Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma
