But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8).
For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen (Romans 11:36).
Jean Roberts Writes:
Perspective. That's what I gained today (April). I had 3 breast biopsies done. I was diagnosed with breast cancer last year. After completing my treatments in July, I had hoped to close this chapter in my life. Well I haven't yet. A breast MRI revealed several suspicious areas of concern. So now I wait for results. Results that could change my life.
While I was laying face down on the MRI table today, getting very uncomfortable, I began to pray. I prayed for the procedure to be over so I could get out of the position I had to remain in for 2 hours perfectly still. It was in those moments that I realized that what I was feeling was nothing compared to what Jesus felt when he was on the cross. My discomfort was minor, where His must have been excruciating. Mine had an approaching end within a short time frame. His was slow and agonizing.
It occurred to me that it didn't matter what the results of my MRI were because my ending had already been written in the blood that Jesus shed for ME! Like a parent that would go to the ends of the earth to protect their child, so also did Christ give all for me, His child. I can't tell you what a comfort it was in those hours in the MRI machine to know God's love for me. I only wish that the whole world could know what I know, could feel the peace that only comes from a personal relationship with God.
