In just a few years, Anne Graham Lotz suffered three major traumas. Throughout her ordeals, she relied on a friend who never left her side. And today, she’s not just surviving, she’s thriving.
Lotz, a best-selling author, exudes the same passion to lead people to Jesus Christ as her legendary father, evangelist Billy Graham.
Through the sorrows of recent years, she has come to rely even more on the comfort of the Holy Spirit. In 2015, her beloved husband, Danny died. A few years later, the father she adored went to heaven at age 99.
Then in August 2018, Lotz was diagnosed with breast cancer. As CBN News has reported, in the past year, she has undergone surgery, radiation and finished the last of her chemo infusions last month.
In her latest book, titled Jesus In Me: Experiencing the Holy Spirit as a Constant Companion, Lotz explains in depth who the Holy Spirit is and how we can know and lean on him for our every need.
In an interview with CBN‘s The 700 Club on Tuesday, Lotz was asked about her health.
“I think it’s good,” she told host Terry Meeuwsen, “I just finished my last infusion a week ago. So they’ll check me every few months, the bloodwork and all that. But I’m just trying to get my strength and stamina back. But God has been so good, Terry. When I look back on the last four years that you just sort of went over, what stands out is not the mourning and the grief and the pain and the suffering. What stands out are the blessings of God. He has blessed me. Poured out blessings through family, friends, the prayers of people. People that you meet in the hospital—the doctors and nurses.”
