As you sit patiently inside the doctor’s office, with your loved one by your side, the doctor enters the room, head pointed toward the ground. He offers a half smile and begins to share the very news you feared. Instantly, your mind jumps forward. Surely this can't be true. How often do misdiagnoses occur? Cancer will change our lives forever.
For too many families—perhaps even your own—the battle with cancer turns into a fight for hope. You want to return to normalcy, before doctor’s visits, procedures and interrupted schedules. But you feel completely powerless—as if you have no control over the future.
When a loved one relies on you for support in the midst of an illness, hold on to the Lord. When hope feels beyond reach, stay the course. When fear overwhelms, turn to Scripture. And when exhaustion sets in, trust in God for strength.
These five Psalms will guide as you seek the Lord today:
- Psalm 91:4 (GNTD)
He will cover you with his wings; you will be safe in his care; his faithfulness will protect and defend you.
- Psalm 23:1-3 (GNTD)
The LORD is my shepherd; I have everything I need. He lets me rest in fields of green grass and leads me to quiet pools of fresh water. He gives me new strength. He guides me in the right paths, as he has promised.
- Psalm 68:19 (GNTD)
Praise the Lord, who carries our burdens day after day; he is the God who saves us.
- Psalm 138:3 (GNTD)
You answered me when I called to you; with your strength you strengthened me.
- Psalm 46:1 (GNTD)
God is our shelter and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble.
