Faith It Through Grief and Cancer
Free Resource Library

Do you need support and encouragement to survive grief or illness?

Don’t go it alone!

There are so many kinds of grief and loss…loss of a loved one, loss of health, loss of a career, etc. Grief is REAL, INTENSE, and HEARTBREAKING! We all experience the devastation of losing a loved one, facing our own illness, or living with the illness of a close relative or friend. So, how do we react, and where do we go for help?

Good News!

“God’s Word will never fail.” Luke 1:37 NLT

Firstly, God loves you and understands (more than we can imagine) how much it hurts to watch a loved one die or battle a serious illness. Secondly, Christ already loves you and is waiting to comfort and guide you through your grieving and/or health journey. He knows how painful and devastating it is to lose someone you love, and He understands that death leaves a hole in your heart.

Likewise, He recognizes the ups and downs of cancer (or any illness), and keeping your faith is crucial to your healing. Both death and illness can lead to panic and fear, confusion, blame, guilt, etc.

We can’t go it alone…we need faith in God and Christ to live with courage, patience, and hope…for the present and the future!

OpenYourTreasures is a place for you to find comfort, encouragement, and healing by depending on His grace, peace, and love!
