“…if you treat your disease with the emotional gravity and sense of hopelessness it deserves, you will ensure your quick death.” – Tim Chavez, journalist, reflecting on his battle with cancer.
“What can take a dying man?
Raise him up to life again?
What can heal a wounded soul?
What can make us white as snow?
What can fill the emptiness?
What can mend our brokenness?
Mighty, awesome, wonderful,
Is the Holy Cross.
Where the Lamb lay down his life,
To lift us from the fall.
Mighty is…the power of…the Cross.”
“I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength, which he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms.” Ephesians 1:18-20
God has called me to hope and abundant life; a calling that is driven along by his incomparably great power.
Will I believe?
