In a recent blog post, beloved psalmist Darlene Zschech described how she feels now after battling cancer for almost a year, claiming cancer has changed her.
Zschech announced on her blog in December that she was diagnosed with breast cancer after attending a routine mammogram. Now free from the cancer and finally able to worship at church again, she shared her current state with her beloved fans.
“After 11 long and grueling months, I am finally starting to feel like my body belongs to me again,” she wrote, “like my heart has capacity in it again for the new, and to be honest, spiritually I feel like a different person.”
Zschech explains that she feels “like everything is new,” stating she is metaphorically diving into new waters. The singer traveled to minister for the first time since her cancer ordeal and maintained she is grateful. “Even though I’m a little bloated due to some of the drugs I now take, and my mind still gets a little fuzzy,” she said.
“Cancer changes you. I feel I am living and will continue to live with much greater intentionality,” Zschech confessed, “I am even honouring my body with more intention as every single day I am eating with intention (no sugars, loads of greens), I am resting with intention, and feeding my spirit in a deeper and ‘unhurried’ way.”
She shared the scripture, John 10:10, that says, “Jesus came to give us life in all its fullness,” and the psalmist wrote that that is where she intends to live by the grace of God.
