On Leukemia and the Grace of God: A Short Comment

From a note to my aunt:

God’s really given me grace for this, and he’s even given my wife and kids grace. The problem is, he’s not giving all my relatives grace, and I’m finding I have to share the comfort he’s pouring out on us.

It’s truly “amazing grace,” as miraculous as anything I’ve ever seen.

One of the things that brought me to Christ was seeing the movie, "In the Presence of Mine Enemies."

When all those people who had been POW’s, tortured for years, came out and fell on their knees and gave thanks to God, I was angry. Why would they thank the God that had allowed such terrible suffering? All I could conclude was that God must have been present with them during their suffering, and that’s why none lost their faith.

Now I understand.

    This is so true. I have experienced that grace myself and I remember it feeling like I was walking on a cloud, or better, floating. Not that I was thinking about it then, but that’s what I remember. Someone later told me it was because He was carrying me in His arms. I believe that. I love you, Shammah, and there are things I believe about God because you beleve them. Thank you for being who you are.
