The Lord is asking you to serve. Because you are tested through what you've suffered, you can help those who are being tested. Make your mess your message. Stop being the victim but be a victor. Let your sickness be your swan song. During the process of healing, you can also help others heal when you share your experiences and how you are able to overcome your cancer. It is by sharing your journey of healing and how you cope after cancer diagnosis, you will be able to encourage others to do the same. When you give your time, talent and treasure by helping those who are lost, the least and the last, the Lord will bless you because you choose to serve. It is your availability that matters to God. He will equip you to whoever He is sending you to serve. Be part of a team who will help other cancer patients cope with family issues, friendly fire, and complications as well as side effects of treatment.
Today is Day 9 of the 30 days to Change Your Life After Cancer Diagnosis. When you PAUSE, you reflect on God's words. When you PRAY, you ask for God's help, And when you PERFORM, you do your best and God will do the rest because "...faith without works is dead."(James 2:26)
From Matthew 20:26-27, "Rather, whoever wishes to be great among you shall be your servant; whoever wishes to be first among you shall be your slave."
Father, God, I know that sometimes I want to be the first, the greatest and the best to the point that I neglect, refuse to help and even trample on the rights of others. Help me to go an extra mile so others may benefit. I ask this through the intercession of Mary and with the guidance, enlightenment and inspiration of the Holy Spirit. In Jesus Name. AMEN.
