My condolences and deepest sympathy for them.
::: WHEN THERE ARE NO REASONS TO BE REJOICE
God wants us to be joyful!
But when we measure it against the suffering we face,
it seems like an impossible thing to do.
How can we rejoice when our child dies?
Or when we lose our job or our health?
Or when we are betrayed by our spouse?
We cannot just ignore these issues,
and put on a fake happiness.
So how can we possibly rejoice always?
::: REJOICE IS POSSIBLE
We rejoice because:
We recognize the truths,
about Jesus — His life, death, and resurrection.
We see in God’s people,
we see God open people’s eyes,
to accept Jesus when the gospel is preached.
We see God answer our prayers,
for victory over sin,
for help in trials,
and healing from sickness.
We see people maturing in their love,
holiness, and knowledge of God.
We see our friend ‘s holiness,
progress, and joy in the faith,
more than we crave their approval and applause.
We see Jesus has completely delivered us from sin’s penalty,
We eagerly await our Savior to transform our lowly bodies to be like His glorious.
God wants us to rejoice,
because of God’s salvation.
No one and nothing can take our salvation,
knowing that the joy of the LORD is our strength;
knowing that we’re loved unconditionally,
knowing that in all things God works, for the good of those who love Him,
knowing that one day we will inhabit the Heaven,
Knowing that we will see the Lord face to face.
Check this out:
“that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.”
Ephesians 3:16-19 ESV

::: UPDATE ABOUT ME
3 Years 4 months Post Biopsy
Pontine Glioblastoma/DIPG Grade IV
Now, Tobias takes care of me completely.
I 100% depend on Tobias, on everything.
I hope miracles happen,
I have asked God,
to allow me at the end of my life,
To have the strength to type and to swallow.
But now it is Tobias taking over and posting my last posts on behalf of me.
I love Tobias so much.
I know I won’t live any longer.
Even though I never met you,
but I have love for you.
I am still on 4 mg – 3,5 mg dexamthasone.
My feeding tube is badly infected. I am taking antibiotics to fight of the germs.
I have trouble swallowing the pills.
I have pain in my belly and in my chest.
I am now taking painkillers throughout the day (novalgin)
I take medicine at night to prevent cramps (diazepam)
No matter what happens,
I trust that Tobias gives himself,
and loves me unconditionally.
I lost all muscular functions by now.
I cannot type or hold the phone anymore.
Yet, inside my head is still the same Titien.
I know ,
I can’t do anything about it.
Just so thankful for Tobias
