From our view, the city looks like a ghost town. I don’t imagine anyone wants to brave what looks to be like arctic winds.
The main side effect Justin is experiencing from the chemo is fatigue. He slept on and off throughout the day yesterday and slept through the night. He is still fighting his oral meds and the “dreaded blood pressure cuff.” It’s difficult to for us and the nurses to navigate, but, at the same time, I admire his strong spirit.
I told Justin that God is making him into a little warrior like David who brought down a giant with the help of God’s power. (My boys love that story. What boy doesn’t?!) Cancer is the giant we are facing. But we know God is bigger than cancer. And with God’s power, Justin will defeat his “giant.”
“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 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
God is bigger than cancer. He is bigger than all of our “giants.” Grace be with you, in the name of our Lord, as you fight YOUR giant.
