wheel-chair-old-help-serveA friend of mine, Dennis Easter, is recovering from cancer with an excellent prognosis. He shared with me one of the learnings he has gained through this process:

“To leverage my healing journey, God showed me how my treatment center could be a house of healing. Instead of heading to therapy every day, I now think of it as being on my way to prayer. I pray for healing, both for myself and others. In so doing, I’m leveraging my pain as gain for others facing similar or even more challenging battles. In identifying with others, and ministering to them in the midst of my own pain, I find I’m getting more healing myself. Praying for others is transforming this entire process for me.”
