So what happened that brought on a brain tumor?
“Where’s your God now?”
“If God loves you so much, how could he let this happen?”
These were a few of the questions friends asked. When they started with this line of interrogation, I’d smile, nod my head, and offer reassurance to them that I’d be just fine. Little did they know I had asked myself those same questions plus a myriad of others after I suffered a seizure and spent hours waiting in an ER curtained room. Where are you, God? Why did this happen? Don’t you love me? What did I do wrong?
My tumor was found April 1, 2011 and had surgery on April 11th. Even though I still carry a few residual effects from the seizure and surgery, I am very fortunate. Since my ordeal I’ve been amazed to learn how differently people deal with brain tumors. And I found how Christians deal with brain tumors most interesting.
Some pulled closer to God while others pushed away.
If you are a Christian who has dealt with a brain tumor, a family member with a brain tumor or are still dealing with a brain tumor, leave a comment. I’d love to hear from you. Tell me your story. How did a brain tumor affect your relationship with God? Maybe we can add good stories to the scary ones that always get told.
Looking forward to hearing from you and having a great on-line conversation.
