A slice of Joel Emmanuel's life.
These words pierced through my heart.
What can be more painful than hearing those words that you have been diagnosed with bone cancer? What would a 16-year old kid actually do if he was only given an approximately three to six months to live?
It’s been exactly six years since I was diagnosed with bone cancer. 6 years of learning, 6 years of growth. 6 years of healing, 6 years of a renewed faith. I have experienced everything: being depressed, being lonely and having lots of questions in my mind… BUT it was only just for a while. Why? Because of HIM.
He told me that I should never be afraid, and yes, He is right. He gave me comfort and assurance that everything will be okay. And yes, everything went well. Now, here I am… 6 years of being a survivor and still counting from the time that I was given a maximum of 6 months to live.
I am strong, I am happy… and I am contented… all because of HIS amazing grace. ALL BECAUSE OF GOD.
