CANCER– fear that you have a deadly disease and you might not live long and/or that it could come back with ferocity.
This can be or seem to be very scary, because we don’t want it to happen. We have a picture of how we want our life around us to work & certain happenings outside that make us fearful.
To combat these emotions, we need to
a) surrender our tight grip on always wanting things to go a certain way for ourselves, and
b) TRUST God that his plan in these areas, whatever they might be, will be a good plan when we look back on it, even if we cannot see the "goodness" of it at the time being. . .that he will take care of us.
