Three years to the day from her husband's drowning, Anne Graham Lotz received a breast cancer diagnosis, reminding her immediately of God's control over the situation. In this powerful show, listen as she shares with host Marti Pieper about how He carried her through each step and why no one should see cancer as a punishment or sign of God's disapproval.
when we look at the death of your husband, your father's home going other losses, we could say in human terms that your cancer came at a bad time, but how would you say that God prepared you for this journey that you were about to go through? Um you know, you don't know when something like this is going to strike and um and so I think my whole life is a preparation and that's one thing I encourage people just challenge people to um establish a personal relationship with God through faith in jesus right now. And then you develop that relationship through daily prayer and bible reading so that you grow in that relationship. Um and and so when something like this hits, you don't have to scramble and try to either, you know, establish a relationship with jesus or clean it up or reconcile or you know, if you're already in full motion. Yes, it's there. So, so you just draw on that. So I think it's very important to be prepared one to know that you're saved, that you're right with God because of the uh death of jesus on the cross. You've you've received him by faith, he's forgiven your sin. You've received eternal life, You have that personal relationship with God. And then number two that you're growing that by giving him time every day and being intentional about growing in your faith. Who daily prayer bible reading, Living out what you read your bible, not just reading it for information, but applying your life, living it out, obeying him, serving him and you grow in that relationship with him. Until um when something like this happens in a sense, you take it in stride. You know, it's not it's not a whammy that it would be if all of a sudden you had to go back to square one and established relationship or think, oh my goodness, I don't know how to pray, I don't know where to look at my bible for answers and then I think that makes it.
