Yesterday I received news of a dear friend in his early forties who has a tumor on one of his kidneys. He was requesting prayer - that the cancer would be contained, that he would be healed and live, that he and his wife would find the peace and comfort of God, and mostly that God would be glorified through all of it. Again, I can only imagine the thoughts that are racing through their minds, but I know that our God will sustain them.
How do you face bad news when it comes, for surely it comes into every life in one form or another? If you don't have a relationship with Jesus Christ, there is no better time than now to get to know Him. He has the answer to every question. He can shine a light through the thickest fog and He can direct your steps to a place of safety and peace.
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13 NIV
