When you find yourself in a situation like the one I’m in — a cancer diagnosis; a very serious cancer diagnosis — I don’t care who you are. You can’t help but ask the question: Why, God? Why me?
Each of us faces struggles in life; often, more than one. And we wonder. And we try to make sense of it. And we wait to see if an answer will come.
Sometimes, oftentimes I believe, it does. It could be right away. Or it could take months or even years.
Then one day, we get it. We really get it.
My niece Danielle Neilson shared this video of Olympic Gold Medalist Scott Hamilton with me the other day. It is so compelling that I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it, and I wanted to share it with you.
It’s hard to believe there could be a gift hidden in the midst of some of the toughest battles we face in life. But then again, perhaps it’s hard not to believe that.
Check out Scott’s YouTube video and let me know what you think.
