I just found out this past week that a guy I have worked with for the last 8 years has been diagnosed with bone cancer and was flown to Arkansas over the weekend where he may end up staying for at least 3 months while his kids are here. As far as I know he will not spend Christmas with his family.
I must admit I am struggling with this a little.
If you have ever read a post of mine that began by saying something like, “I was having a discussion with a guy at work the other day…” well, this is the man that has been diagnosed with cancer. He is a friend.
His name is Robert Bare. He is young, he loves his family, and he works hard to take care of them. And as you may know we have had some great discussions about our faith and he is very passionate about his.
Now you probably already assume that I am angry with God for allowing this to happen or something along those lines and that’s the struggle I am having… but actually that’s the problem, I am not. And that’s what scares me.
I don’t feel anything towards God over this situation. I am not angry as I would like to be (or maybe I am and just don’t know it), I am not positive towards God (as in, It is in His control), but I am also not negative towards God either.
So if you pray, then how about saying one for this family.
