Show Notes:

Carman, a Christian music artist, songwriter, television host and evangelist, shares with Rev. Percy McCray about how cancer formed some of his understanding of God. “We view God as a little bit more…understanding, merciful.” He says that healing does not always come, nor does it always come in the way we think it should. Healing might come through medicine, surgery, or miraculous means—or ultimately passing on to see the Lord. “It expands your understanding to see what God is doing in a different way in different people’s lives and how vast He is.”

He also talks with Rev. McCray about the reality of death and how we choose to use the time we do have, however long that might be. “You are not going to escape Death. And however you live that life between now and then, that’s going to be up to you.”

Carman encourages listeners to not take responsibility for things outside of our control, but to entrust ourselves to God. “Turn it (cancer/burden) over to Him and to the people who know what they’re doing…and go and do what you’re called to do.”

Quotes:

  • “When you take a yoke upon you that is not easy and a burden that is heavy and you start to be concerned about it, that means you have taken upon yourself something God did not give you to be concerned about.”
  • “Your objective is to live a normal life. And living a normal life doesn’t require having everything go normally.”
