What Can I Do?

If you are one of those individuals who are asking yourself, "What can I do?" you're in the right place. Below, I have listed several things that anyone can do very easily, and further, on down the list, I have added some very specific things that can be done for me and my family.

1. Please be in prayer for me and my family.

2. Don't be weird about it. I say that in a joking way, but seriously, don't be weird about it. I have cancer. It's not contagious.

3. Don't come to tell me what God is going to do. You're not God. It could be His will that this cancer takes my life. I doubt it but don't speak for God. Just go read Jeremiah 28. At the same time, encouragement is a wonderful thing when it comes from God's Word.

4. If you are someone who can step up and take on responsibility at church, come let me know. I'm going to have times when I have to be away for a week or so. I'll need people I can lean on in those times.

5. I need community and I love spending time with people. If you have some time free and are willing to just stop by the office and talk over a cup of coffee, then come on by.

6. If you want to buy me a coffee, I like the Snickerdoodle Hot Coffee from No. 9 Coffee Co. in Leadington or the Vanilla Jackson from Coljac's in Farmington or Desloge.

7. If you're still reading, I might as well tell you about how my recent studies have shown that riding a motorcycle greatly increases my joy, which has got to be good for fighting cancer. Harley Davidson Roadster in Performance Orange please. :)

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!

What Would Job Do?

Job 2:9-10 says, "Then his wife said to him, “Do you still hold fast your integrity? Curse God and die.” But he said to her, “You speak as one of the foolish women would speak. Shall we receive good from God, and shall we not receive evil?” In all this Job did not sin with his lips." Here lately I've been thinking a lot about this passage. So many times I find myself wishing for heaven in this life, but that's not what's promised in this life. My goal through this whole cancer ordeal is to be able to say, "I desired God's glory more than anything else."

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.
