Today at 2:30, Lord willing, medical professionals shall unfreeze bone marrow some selfless young fellow gave to a stranger. These cells shall be transplanted into my Resplendent Bride’s dying body, whereupon, Lord willing, they shall happily take up residence and flourish: bringing forth new life.

4 Myths About God’s Will
#1 The Myth Of God’s elusive will.
Whether you face the trepidation of being alone on Valentine’s Day, or the trepidation of transforming yourself into a romantical beast: you no doubt need a Gospel recalibration for Valentine’s Day.
The Cross of Christ teaches us that Love is sacrifice, forgiveness, and long suffering.
By way of a Valentine’s Day Recalibration EvanWelcher.com happily offers a trio of articles composed of my humble thoughtlings concerning Christian Marriage as it pertains to my Resplendent Bride’s fight against the cancer.
~ Pastor Evan
1. In “The Cancer, 15 Months, And The Sovereignty Of God” I wrestle with practical implications of being essentially Reformed while asking myself, “What if God did take her away?”
2. “The Cancer & The Christ (Where Was God During The Cancer? Everywhere He Needed To Be.” is new to the Internet, and is a sermon I gave at First Christian Church on 3.21.13. This sermon aimed to answer the question: Where is God when we suffer? I hope this is useful to both those whom are married as well as those whom wish to be married, one fine day.
3. In “How To Keep Your ‘I Do’ In The Present Tense” I flesh out how a Cross shaped marriage is key to covenant keeping.
This is the text of a sermon I gave at First Christian Church on 3.21.2013. My Resplendent Bride’s Lymphoma was gone, and this sermon was meant to answer the question, “Where was Christ during the cancer?”. Later that year her Lymphoma returned with Leukemia on its coattails. I still stand by this sermon in answering the question, “Where was God during the cancer? Everywhere He needed to be.”
Don Henley of “Eagles” fame once sang, “I had a good life, before you came.”
And so it was with me.
