Skin cancer and body pain gone

Several years ago, I retired and looked forward to having more time to enjoy recreational activities, especially outdoors. I’ve always enjoyed running, hiking, sailing, playing tennis, riding a bicycle, swimming.

In a short time, however, a number of physical limitations became apparent. In the past I had always expected and seen quick healing of physical challenges. But these issues were not going away, and they were accumulating. First, there was pain in my hips, then pain in my right shoulder, then a large wart on my left foot, and finally a diagnosed case of skin cancer. Walking without pain became impossible; lifting weights, running, and playing tennis were unthinkable.

I prayed about these issues over the course of about a year. And my many hours of prayerful study were rewarded with a clearer understanding of how man was created in the image and likeness of God (see Genesis 1:27). God made us neither young nor old; not subject to a cycle of birth, maturity, and decay; without declining faculties, a narrowing sphere of activity, or a limited future. The prayerful work was enjoyable and the mental progress evident—but the physical symptoms continued.
