Beating Stage 4 Cancer While Pregnant
with Jeremiah Jones, Christian pastor, speaker, coach, and author
Triumph Over Trials
Sometimes we can do everything right, yet bad things still happen. It’s those times when lies can attack us and tell us living for God isn’t worth it.
Pastor Jeremiah Jones faced these lies when his wife was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer while pregnant. Let’s learn how he turned his trials into testimonies.
Words of Hope:
“May your choices reflect your hopes, not your fears.”
― Nelson Mandela
In part 1 of Relentless Hope, Pastor Jeremiah explains the power of free will. With this life comes an ability to impact other people’s lives, which lies in our capacity for choice. Pastor Jeremiah encourages us to use this gift to guide and improve others’ lives instead of making poor choices. He draws from personal experience to demonstrate how discipline, prioritizing God, and relying on His plan brings joy and meaning to our lives, even in difficult situations. Choose God first because He always has our best in mind.
In part 2 of our 3-part series, Pastor Jeremiah redefines leadership, emphasizing the power and responsibility we have to influence others. He insists that we’re all leaders in some capacity, no matter our titles. Though leadership can seem daunting, it has great potential to help people grow beyond where they are now. Influential leaders have integrity—their words match their actions, and their private life matches their public persona. Pastor Jeremiah shares his failed leadership stories to help us understand the importance of learning from mistakes and improving.
In part 3 of Relentless Hope, Pastor Jeremiah encourages us to reflect on the legacy we leave and how our thoughts and actions today shape how others will remember us. We are here for a purpose, and every choice we make has the power to influence others. Our experiences, both good and bad, are not just for our benefit but to help others going through similar situations and to guide them to better decisions.
Scripture to reflect on:
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”
– Proverbs 3:5-6
Closing prayer for Jeremiah’s story:
Dear Lord, you’re always guiding my decisions for a higher purpose. But sometimes, I confuse my earthly desires and your will. Please lend me your wisdom, so I know the difference and make the right choices according to your purpose for my life. Thank you, Lord. In Jesus’ Name, amen.
