Cancer doctors and nurses are a special breed of people. I know that not everyone is called to work in a field where you deal with bad news every day. They need to be more than clinicians; they need to have compassion, a warm touch, and an upbeat personality.
I have lost many to breast cancer, some to colon cancer, and one to intestinal cancer. In each of their lives there came a defining point after the shock of the diagnosis, surgeries, recuperation, and treatments was over. They could deny His Existence, they could be so angry as to not turn to Him or they turned to God and believed in His strength anything is possible.
I have seen my share of sadness as God has called some home. They fought valiantly, speaking highly of their Lord and Savior. They knew this disease may take their health, perhaps their life, but it could never take their soul. That part of their body was in the care of the Great Physician.
As He called each of them home, they shared they were ready to go. They knew where they were headed and to Whom they would be seeing in a breaths time. They passed with a look of peace that cannot be explained by anything other than having seen Jesus waiting for them.
I have also seen my share of joy as God has chosen to use some as ambassadors of healing. It’s been amazing to watch as some who did not have a close, personal relationship with the Lord of Lords, come into an intimate walk with Him. It’s like watching a plant in the spring. First we see a sprout, then a stem and leaves, followed by a bud and finally a beautiful blossom.
They too have come face to face with the great Healer. Their walk on earth is not complete yet. They have much to learn and much to teach.
