When Health Fails

The perishable must clothe itself with the
imperishable, and the mortal with immortality.
                      —1 Corinthians 15:53

Cancro. Krebs. Kanker. Cancer! In any language the word triggers gut-wrenching panic.

If you—or someone dear to you—are combatting a life-threatening affliction the following words, written by one who was losing a physical battle but winning a spiritual war, may give you courage.

Cancer is so limited … / It cannot cripple love / It cannot shatter hope / It cannot corrode faith / It cannot eat away peace / It cannot destroy confidence / It cannot kill friendship / It cannot shut out memories / It cannot silence courage / It cannot invade the soul / It cannot reduce eternal life / It cannot quench the Spirit / It cannot lessen the power of the resurrection.

You’re a hero, because you’ve looked
fear in the face without blinking.
