It strikes the young and old and the otherwise healthy. While cancer is best known for its ability to slowly take a person’s strength and then life, it attacks first the emotions. No scanner or test will show its growth there, but it clings tight to the mind and thoughts of all it enters. For those fighting cancer and their loved ones, knowing this reality is the first step towards healing.
No battle involving the mind and emotions can be won without a clear sense of purpose and identity. Knowing who you are and why you are here will give you the most potent tool in fighting off the spiritual and emotional attacks that come alongside cancer. And if you trust God, he has a promise and a future for your physical being as well.
