Overcoming Satan’s Attempt to Distract You
By April Boyer
When I was diagnosed with cancer in 2012, after an already trying year of losses, and serious illnesses for both my husband and me, the knees of my faith shook.
The announcement of cancer was scary enough. The idea that my husband also required surgery and strengthening was almost too much to think about. Between the both of us, we had 7 surgeries (I had a couple of procedures as well) and we lost 2 parents and another family member.
Satan was doing his best to distract me from refreshing in the presence of my God.
Hearing cancer, and then all the other news made me yell out to God: “Why?”.
Then I examined myself and imagined all the reasons God did not love me. So I cried “Why not me?”.
But most of all, after learning about the year we would experience, I cried more: “Why now”?
Satan was hard at work washing away the foundation built on my faith in God.
He whispered to me that God did not care.
He devised ways to make me think that my God had forgotten me.
He weakened my trust by invading my imagination with anger and bitterness.
