One Year All Clear!!! 25th February, 2013Posted by Scotty in Cancer.
I have been sitting here taking care of some administrative tasks and just looked at the date and thought… wow… that crept up on me?! Yesterday… is the year anniversary of getting my ALL CLEAR from the hospital! It’s hard to believe it’s been a year since that portion of my journey ended.
In the midst of chemo, I felt like the world was ending. It felt like it would never end. But here I am, a year later, looking back on it and I have a hard time believing that was me?! It feels like a different person, another life. It’s amazing how a difficult season can feel like a lifetime while you’re going through it, but when you’re out the other side and looking back–and especially if you’re looking from the perspective of eternity–it’s such a tiny slither of our existence.
God uses massive experiences like this past season to do huge transformative work in a person’s heart. I have a hard time reconciling the man who was diagnosed with cancer with the man who sits here typing. At some point soon I’ll try to put some of that transformation into words but for now I’m content simply to acknowledge the phenomenon.
I’m alive! My life is His to use in whatever way He sees fit. And..
To Him be the glory
