She should feel happy, fulfilled and filled with joy but here she was in her very private bedroom and sobbing her heart out…Life could be so cruel, she thought. Why was this “thing” happening to her, why did she feel so depressed and in despair when she should be feeling “on top of the world?”
Dr. McMillen had given her the bad news yesterday, just a day after she received her degree! What timing, she thought. A cancer, he said. A small cancer had been slowly growing on the tip of her uterus. There was hope, but it was small and fading, like a candle’s glow, almost gone.
Her degree would be useless, with the cancer. Was all she did, done in vain?
She lay on the bed, worrying and wondering what kind of future—or maybe there wouldn’t be any kind of future for her, when she heard a voice whispering…..”Be not afraid, Janice I am here with you…”
This “presence” filled her with a calmness she had never felt before and somehow, some way, she knew that things would be alright.
She returned to her Dr’s office for a test result two days later and he gave her such a look of puzzlement, that it stunned her right down to her bones!
He said, ‘Janice, I can’t understand this; it’s not logical, it’s not how it goes…but the cancer—all of it—is gone! You are free, clear and healthy..”
Janice replied, “I know what has happened!…Christ has forgiven my sins and has set me free of this illness..Praise God! Now, I can use my degree as nurse to help others. Thank you, Jesus!”
She left a puzzled but happy Dr., smiling and praising God, too, as she practically skipped down the hospital hallway, free and ready to be God’s champion!
