Truth Over Feelings... I LOVE THIS!



Does John Cooper from Skillet have too much eyeliner on... yes.
Does John Cooper from Skillet have too much black hair dye... yes.
Does John Cooper from Skillet have a truth bomb to drop on us... YES!

I get so tired of people assuming that how they feel actually represents the truth of how God works in our lives. The Bible tells us that God loves us, that God is present, that God understands, and that God is intervening even when we are unaware. Just because you or I don't feel good, maybe are even in the pits of despair, doesn't mean that God has stopped loving us or even that God is far off. God is always with us, and His love has never abated!

Romans 8:35-39 says,

"Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? As it is written, “For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.” No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord."

The Second Time This Year

It's official. I have a second cancer in my body this year. You heard that right, not cancer for the second time because it's come back, but second cancer. Earlier this year I had testicular cancer. Now I have thyroid cancer. I will be having surgery to remove more body parts for the third time this year (hence the picture of Luke having his hand cut off by his dad in Empire Strikes Back. Oh... spoiler!). This stinks, but God is still in control. Through all of this, I want him to be glorified. Romans 8:18 says, "For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us." God, show us your glory!

I'm On Social Media

I'm now on social media (like all the cool kids these days). I've made sure to make my handles both OG and as morbid as the name of this blog. I can now be followed on Twitter at @danielhascancer and on Instagram at danielhascancer . For all you hipsters out there that have been using Instagram for a long time, please be patient with me. Earlier this morning it took me over five minutes just to figure out how to take and post a picture. I plan to use these accounts to feature things that are going on in my life. For instance, today I got my hair cut with my kids. Hence this picture. I also plan on using Instagram more as I go through procedures and hospital stuff, so if you like to see procedure stuff or your just curious, follow me there.

Happy Labor Day

Happy Labor Day! Today, I broke all the rules my dad taught me growing up. Dad always said that the best way to celebrate Labor Day was by laboring. Today, the only thing that labored was my Lazy Boy chair as it held me up. I relaxed, I read, I watched some TV, and then I went for a nice long motorcycle ride. We had a wonderful holiday.
