Rebel Cancer Mom

D3179ABE-7C3F-4A9F-ADFF-4A4B619647F7Pediatric Cancer is doing its worst to make me into a slave. To run my life. To overtake my emotions. To invade every thought. To tell me what I can and cannot do. To take my energy and steal my joy. To weaken my faith and shut me up about hope.

But I refuse to conform.

Today is day 707 and the start of another round of chemotherapy for my tired, sick, depressed seven-year-old. We are driving to clinic in a pervading mood so thick and heavy with his fear I had to put the air conditioning on just to breathe.

Yet. I can still say this. God is good and Jesus is more than worth it.

I pray these words are used to reach the dark places, deep cracks and wide spaces.

So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:31-32




One thought on “Rebel Cancer Mom

  1. For though we walk in the flesh, we are not waging war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ, being ready to punish every disobedience, when your obedience is complete.
    2 Corinthians 10:3‭-‬6 ESV
