When diagnosed with hepatitis C, cancer, or any other condition, we often focus on what we’re losing and how this will change our lives in a negative way. We can turn hepatitis C and cancer inside out.

Anne Graham Lotz has been recently diagnosed with cancer. Anne’s shares a new way to look at cancer and life-changing diagnoses. Anne received great comfort from the poem, “What Cancer Cannot Do,” but shares what God is showing her about what Cancer Can Do.

Anne is an author, teacher, speaker, and founder of AnGel Ministries. Anne is also is the daughter of evangelist Billy Graham. I encourage you today to look at your diagnosis of hepatitis C, or whatever condition you’re dealing with through a new lens.

Ask God to help you turn hepatitis C and cancer inside out. See this from a new perspective that can help you receive blessings in the midst of the storm. Anne shared a list from her recent blog post about what Cancer Can Do. Put Hepatitis C or what you’re dealing with in place of Cancer. Feel free to add to the list.

Cancer Can…

…enrich love

…refocus hope

…strengthen faith

…deepen prayer

…command peace

…bolster confidence

…increase endurance

…multiply friendships

…enhance memories

…open doors

…realign priorities

…grow courage

…create empathy

…tenderize compassion

…develop character

Cancer can be a blessing in disguise.

Cancer can be the preliminary to bearing much eternal fruit.

Cancer can be a display case for God’s glory.

Anne asks, “Please continue to pray for my healing, and that I will not miss what cancer can do for me.”

Please let us know how we can be praying for you with healing and strength as the Lord takes you through your journey.
