When we get a negative health diagnosis, we tend to look at the effects it has on our life. Treatment, surgery, medication, and side effects are usually first on our mind. That is understandable – health issues are life changing in those ways.
How often, though, do we think about the spiritual aspects of our life? Does the threat of poor health draw us to or away from God? I have prayed (and written several times) about making a difference. I want to be God’s tool to draw people to Him. I don’t want to deal with the struggles of a cancer diagnosis, but I know God can use even me to share the truth of God’s word with others. My prayer is still that I would draw people to Jesus.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for sending Jesus to die for me and the Holy Spirit to guide me. Thank You that You can use anyone to share the truth of Who You are. Please help me to be a shining light for You to everyone I meet.
I pray this in Jesus’ name.
God is so good.
