I Don't Understand
Alright guys, I know there is probably not an answer out there to my question, but I'm really struggling with something.
There is a little boy I know who is dying of cancer. I just found out today that he is in the final stages and it won't be long. It kills me to hear things like this, especially when it has to do with little children. This little boy is only eight years old.
I am so torn inside. I have wrestled with this before, but I am really wrestling with why God would allow something like this to happen to a little child. I mean, this little boy is in so much pain from the cancer having spread thought his whole body, that he has to wear a patch to try to alleviate the pain as much as possible. It kills me to even think about it.
I don't know how to rationalize this situation in my head. I just think of how scared he must be. The doctors have basically said there is nothing left to do, so they are sending him home. He's being sent home to die. Why would doctor's give up so easily? Why would God allow them to give up so easily?
God, save this little boy!!! I pray that his body would be healed and a miracle would unfold before our eyes. I am out of words, overwhelmed with emotion.
I love to get up early and work out. It starts my day off with energy while giving me peace and quiet as well as time to myself to talk with God. I am married to a wonderful man with whom we have a beautiful daughter and a dashing son! Life can't get much better than this!!
