Cancer is a very hard subject, everyone knows that. Having one of your parents have it is even more unbearable. You have to go through a lot when you have cancer, but most importantly it shows if you have true faith in God or not. For me I didn't have faith in him, I thought I did but when things got bad I lost every ounce I had in him and that changed me really quick.
Almost 2 years ago my mom was diagnosed with stage 2 Breast Cancer. It took us all by surprised because my mom was healthy and it just didn't make sense to me at all. I blamed God for everything. How could he do this to my mom? Why her? She didn't do anything wrong, why punish her? Greif ran through my heart so fast I didn't talk to anyone and I cried constantly. I didn't understand why God did this to us. Needless to say, I lost my faith in God.
A couple of weeks before my mom got done with her treatments, one of my friend's mom had passed away from Ovarian cancer. It hit me pretty hard because she was like another mom to me. I went to her services and her son preached about how God-fearing she was and that even though everything happened the way that it did that God had a plan. Maybe not the plan he wanted it to be but he had a plan for her, and her family. He said that God had a reason for her to be diagnosed. He has reasons for everything that is happening and that is going to happen.
God has a reason for everything. It might not what we like or want to happen but he knows what he is doing and the outcome will be great! God gives his hardest battles to his strongest warriors. Whoever is fighting, has faught, or will fight cancer, God loves you. He has a plan for you, he gives us these trials and tribulations for a reason and when he is done with it, it's amazing!
