Last week, my oncologist shared news I wasn’t prepared to receive: my tumor has grown a few millimeters.
There had been no signs or indicators that cued my body to brace for the shock.
In the wake of hard news, life once again feels disrupted by the unexpected. The burden both sharper and softer to bear. As the reality settles, a soft landing has been in remembering the burden is not mine alone. God’s provision has remained present, and my faith trusts it will not yield.
If you are here, you get it. You too understand the ups and downs that are present when the unexpected hits. You’ve felt the weight, you’ve experienced the questions and doubt, and, yet, you share in the hope we have through a life with God.
