There is a story on ABC today about Amy Robach. Amy was talked into having the first ever mammogram on air for Breast Cancer month. Her co-workers reasoned that she is 40, the age that women are urged to have a mammogram, and she had not had one yet. So she agreed - and they found cancer.
I wish her all the best for the future - her surgeries and treatments will not be easy.
My problem with it is a comment I saw about the article (on Facebook):" Someone said "God bless you, Amy" and a reply under that said "God didn't bless her when he gave her cancer, so why should he bless her now?" How sad is that?
I just checked, and that comment has already been removed. There was an almost instant response to that comment, by me and others. I guess the commentor - Helen - thought better of it and deleted it.
Where do people get the idea that God gives us illnesses and problems? Our troubles are all the result of our actions and thoughts and choices. God gave us freewill.....and we always have to face up to the choices we make....sooner or later.....whether bad or good.
God is love. God is good......always. He gives us life and we make of it what we make of it. Please don't blame your troubles and your illnesses on God.
