I don’t think most people know this but, my dad has a nickname, and it is…The DOMINATOR. A little background story… We play multiple games of volleyball every year while we are family camping, and my dad thinks he is really good. He thinks he is SO good he “Dominates.” Well I mean he is alright, I’ll give him some credit. But, he is playing with all of my cousins who are in their prime, mid to late 20’s. Get the picture? A 55-year-old trying to compete with very athletic, young adults. Pretty much the only thing he can do is get in their heads, and trash talk them. All you hear is FEED ME! FEED THE DOMINATOR! IM READY TO DOMINATE! BRING IT ON! CAN’T STOP THE DOMINATOR! And then if you are really lucky, you will get the ridiculous dominator look. The look I PROMISE you will never forget. Holding up peace signs, teeth out and him saying YEAH BABY! YEAH BABY! YEAH BABY! and yell… THE DOMINATOR! The saddest part about it, is, I’m almost 100% positive he gave himself that nickname.
When we received the chemo the other day my dad was so excited! Yeah, you read it right, he was EXCITED. My mom and I were shocked. Usually when people receive their treatment they are depressed. But instead he was yelling “BRING IT ON CHEMO! I’M READY TO DOMINATE!” My brother called on the phone shortly after, and I heard my dad say, “Oh I’m doing GREAT now that my chemo came!” You could be thinking oh dang he is just saying that cause he is in denial… but I promise you, that’s a NEGATIVE.
The reason why my Dad is so excited is because he knows the Lord’s power. The STRONGEST POWER in the entire universe. I’m pretty sure God can lend my dad some strength to fight this little disease. In fact, he already has given a massive amount of strength to my whole family. Nobody can be down when my dad, the one who is actually going through this process is so FAITHFUL and JOYFUL.
If you zoom out and look at the big picture, we are so little compared to our God. He already knows what is going to happen. It doesn’t make sense for us to worry, stress, be anxious, because the King of not only heaven but EARTH is in control. I understand why people would be terrified if they attacked this battle alone. I would be a complete mess trying to figure out the outcome, because most likely, I would get DESTROYED. It would be like going into the championship World Cup game without ever touching a soccer ball… Wouldn’t you want the best on your team? Since we have that ROBUST faith, it puts this fight into a whole new prospective. We have the MVP on our team, GOD. So be ready chemo, be ready cancer, I would be scared, cause THE DOMINATOR is ready for a fight!
