Knowing Jesus Through Cancer

A cancer walk is the type of struggle that can reveal new things about Jesus you’d never seen before. On the day before cancer came into your life, you probably understood that
Jesus was your Savior, your Protector and your Comforter. Yet, sometimes your faith can jump from understanding who Jesus is to knowing who Jesus is.

A cancer walk can do that. Like
Lazarus, you have experienced Jesus carrying
you through the dark times and into the light.
Are you thinking, “Not me. I don’t see Jesus in
my cancer walk.” Well, here’s the cool thing
about Jesus. He is there even if you do not
know it. Not only that, He is there even if you
do not know Him! I love that. I cannot tell you
the times in my life when I have taken my eyes
off Jesus, only to look back and see that sure
enough, Jesus was there. I was just not looking.

Let’s try seeing with new eyes- Jesus’ eyes.
Thinking about Jesus. “Since the cancer
diagnosis, I know with more certainty that…”
▶ Circle all that apply:
• “He is with me when I am frightened.”
• “He brings peace in times of turmoil.”
• “He continues to love me when I am
weak.”
• “He guides my steps when I see no
path.”
• “He fills me with courage when I am
surrounded by fears.”
• “He protects me from the temptation of
despair.”
• “He softens my words to those who care
for me.”
• “He gives me strength when I am down.”
• “He showers me with wisdom in my
confusion.”
▶ How has your cancer journey changed
your understanding of who Jesus is?

▶ Was there a specific situation during
your cancer journey

 

“Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy,”  1Peter 1:8
