“ Christ, in his life, death, and resurrection, has put death to death. He has killed sorrow and loss. He has destroyed disease. He has eradicated loneliness.

We are either a disciple, or we are not. We either let go of everything, or we don’t. There’s no in between.. Let’s make it our prayer to be able to let go of things dearest to us, whether plans or people, so that through losing everything we may gain Christ and be made like Him 😊the cost of losing things in this short life is actually soo little compared to the surpassing reward of spending eternity in joy with Him! 🙌
To still pray when things are not right! Joel was diagnosed with an Atypical Teratoid/ Rhamboid Tumor (AT/RT) in January of 2010. He had a surgery to remove the tumor and was undergoing 54 weeks of treatment including chemotherapy and radiation. In October of 2010, he had a tumor recurrence. Joel is 4 years old now. And has survived thanks to his family’s faith and positive thinking.
