The Lord moves in mysterious ways.
Which is why author and humorist Patsy Clairmont doubted God was speaking to her when He asked her to share Genesis 1:3, “Let there be light,” with her friend who was sick with cancer.
Patsy knows how dark life can be. She has lived through some difficult seasons herself. In fact, for many years she suffered such crippling anxiety that she feared leaving her house, and some days she couldn’t even get out of bed.
Still, “let there be light” seemed completely irrelevant to her friend’s situation, and she was reluctant to share it with her friend.
Fortunately, she did, and a few days later, Patsy’s friend called with a report from her doctor. He had told her, “When I am looking at your bone scan, what I am searching for are flashes of light because everywhere there’s a flash of light, your antibodies are killing the cancer.”
