God is as Steady as a Rock

By Rev. Ernest O'Neill

Do you know that cancer isn't a problem? Do you realize that? Far worse things than dying, far worse things than going into the new life that we were made for. Far worse things than going and meeting the King of kings, far worse things than being in a place where there is continual peace and joy and love, far worse things than that. So it isn't that cancer is the problem. It isn't the bankruptcy that's the problem, it isn't the money trouble that is the problem, it isn't the job that is the problem, it isn't even your family and those awkward creatures you live with at home that is the problem, it isn't all of that. The problem is that you allow those things to be little messages to you, 'The world is crumbling', and it's not crumbling.

The dear God who loves you is steady as a rock and has you in his hands and is saying to you, "I am here, I am here. Don't look at those things that look as if the world is shaking. Those are silly superficial symptoms, I am here and I’m not moving and you're in my hands and this will be the same afterwards as it was before." That's it.
