I was scared when my dad was diagnosed with cancer, and we couldn’t see him for a very long time and no one would tell me and my sisters why. Then one day, we were able to go hang out with him and he wouldn’t tell us anything only that he was very, very ill. He kept telling us he would be fine despite the fact that we weren’t able to see him on our normal schedule for months.
He did recover fully and was fine for years until he was diagnosed a second time. Only this time, we were able to see him like normal when he wasn’t in pain or feeling tired or weak. We would have to leave his house early or just wouldn’t be able to go there. But God would remind me everything would be fine just like in John 14:27 when God said, “Peace I leave you, my peace I give to you. Note as the world gives do I give it to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid.”
