End of Life & Terminal Health Concerns
"I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die." (John 11:25-26)
Receiving a diagnosis of cancer or any serious illness often brings an overwhelming sense of reality to our doorstep. It's that moment when the inevitability we've always known suddenly stands right before us. The questions flood in: What treatments will I need? Will I be okay? Who will care for my family during my hospital stay? And perhaps the most profound question of all – is God punishing me?
Facing a life-threatening illness or the effects of old age can force us to confront our own mortality. Most of us would prefer to avoid thinking or talking about our death, but turning a blind eye won't change the fact that we all share a 100% mortality rate.
In these challenging times, pastoral counseling offers a space filled with sensitivity and compassion. It can guide you to recognize the importance of not squandering your final days on worry, fret, or anger. How you approach your death communicates as much about your relationship with Christ as how you've lived. God has a good plan for us, providing a hope-filled path to magnify Jesus in our last days. Don't miss the chance to let your light shine, strengthening your faith in Him as your personal Savior. Remember, He's got this, and He's got you!
