When will you leave us alone? We are tired of your wreaking havoc in people’s lives. No one wants to hear your name. In this week alone, we have heard of two bad reports and an alert about you and your presence.
You have brought yourself into the lives of a family of a ten-year-old girl. She is a very sweet child who already had special medical needs. Did you absent yourself after she received surgical help to remove your presence? Oh no! You had to be a rare and aggressive type.
On Wednesday night, we heard of a lady who has already dealt with you last year underwent biopsies of her skin to check whether you have chosen to invade her physique again.
Less than a half-hour ago, I received a prayer call from church. The granddaughter of one of our women recently had a brain tumor removed. This was not her first bout with you. The message today is this 30-year-old granddaughter has maybe a month left on this earth.
Each time we hear of brain tumors, we think of our lady who passed away two months ago and left behind her husband and two children, her parents, four sisters and one brother and their families, and a church family. She left us 25 days after she was diagnosed—way too soon.
While you think you have the upper hand in all of this, you don’t. God is in control. Those of us who hear of your disrupting someone’s life will pray for that person and his or her family.
Don’t you see? We love these people and their families. God loves them and will watch over them all. We pray that God will guide the patients and the caregivers through each day and give them adequate rest while they sleep.
While you think you have the last say in each of the lives you touch, God is the one whose word is final.
