Crown or Cancer Podcast

A worthy wife is a crown for her husband,
    but a disgraceful woman is like cancer in his bones. – Proverbs 12:4

Am I a crown or a cancer to my husband? Crown or cancer to those around me? Am I a healthy thing or an illness?

Eternal Reasoning

A lot of things just don’t make sense. Right now, there are more things that don’t make sense in life than I’ve ever noticed. Pandemics, poverty, cancer, and the death of my father really don’t make sense to me.

The death of my father doesn’t make sense. I mean, he had a lot going on health wise, so don’t get me wrong. But honestly, him dying two weeks ago after his procedure was never a scenario that played in my head. And now, it just doesn’t make sense.

It doesn’t make sense. Today, it doesn’t make sense. Tomorrow, it may not make sense. In this lifetime, his death and the timing may never make sense to me. And while it’s hard to be “OK” to accept that, I have to. How? Why?

Because to God, it makes sense. It doesn’t have to make sense to me. I don’t have to like it. It makes sense to God. It doesn’t have to make sense to my family. It makes sense to Him.

We’ve all looked at this situation, us, family, and friends. We’re all learning to cope with this curveball. And I think we understand that we don’t understand all that God plans or allows. But the most important thing is that in all that God plans or allows, it is done with eternity in mind.

It doesn’t make sense here, but it makes eternal sense. We actually have it wrong. Because anything we do without eternity in mind is really what doesn’t make sense.

“My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord . “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. – Isaiah 55:8 NLT
