Great Words – Great God


One of the good (nice) things about having cancer and enduring chemotherapy is all the kind words that come your way.  Usually words like; “how are you doing today,” “we are praying for you and Linda,” How can we help you?” and many more that are expressions of people’s love and concern.  After six months I still not used to all the attention, but is kind-of-nice.  

It is not just limited to words, but also actions.  Today one of Sue and her son Jake from Short Bus community came over. Jake mowed the lawn and she made sure dinner was taken care of tonight.  Some good friends from our Epic community are making sure our alkaline levels in our drinking water are where they need to be, so their providing us with drinking water.  Linda and I  really appreciate of these special gifts.  We are learning in a fresh and new way how blessed we are even on this difficult path of cancer.

The reason I started this post was share a card I received from my brother-in-law and sister-in-law in Denver.  I’ve seen these words before describing God’s work in our life., but today they have a more significant meaning and place in my heart.  Here they are:

When you are the neediest, He is the most sufficient

When you are completely helpless, He is the most helpful.

When your feel totally dependent, He is absolutely dependable.

When you are the weakest, He is the most able.

When you are most alone, He is intimately present.

When you feel you are the least, He is the greatest.

When you feel the most useless, He is preparing you.

When it is the darkest, He is the only light you need.

When you feel the least secure, He is your Rock and Fortress.

I find these words to more true each day.  I know its hyperbole, but its the truth in this case –  at least for me.
