Nicole Weider Shares Cancer Update: ‘God is a God of Peace’

By Movieguide® Contributor

Former Victoria’s Secret model Nicole Weider is asking for prayers for her children amid her cancer diagnosis.

“I think one of the hardest parts about having a cancer diagnosis is worrying about my kids,” she wrote on Instagram. “But I’m trying to remember that God is a God of peace and not of fear! The past couple of nights I haven’t really been able to sleep because it keeps ruminating in my mind.”

“I want them to see me be strong, courageous and not afraid of having cancer,” she continued. “Because if I am it won’t be as scary for them. I’ll be heavily relying on Jesus!! Can you also please pray for my kids that even if it gets hard, they will see mommy be strong, and that they feel Jesus’ love also like never before? Your prayers are working. And your kind comments mean SO much to me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!”

While Weider acknowledges this has been a difficult season, she’s seen her faith grow deeper.

“If the devil thought giving me stage 4 cancer was going to make me doubt God or question his goodness he picked the wrong girl,” she shared. “I feel more close to God now more than ever before. I see His presence and love and little reminders all around me. I don’t know how people walk cancer journeys or serious illnesses without Jesus. That boggles my mind. I am scared- but I know that Jesus is with me.”

She also shared how being with family this Christmas helped distract her from the diagnosis.

“It was such a blessing to spend time with our family for Christmas,” Weider wrote. “Besides not feeling well two nights ago I haven’t been dwelling on the thought I have cancer with my family around which has been SO nice!”

She announced that she will begin chemo this Friday.

“I’m SO thankful my first chemo treatment was supposed to be on January 10th, but we prayed and persisted and now thank God it’s this Friday! I can tell my body really needs to fight this cancer now!”

Movieguide® previously reported on Wieder’s diagnosis:

“It’s so interesting because when I got this stage 4 cancer diagnosis, I really started to have flashbacks of when I was young and growing up, and then why things happened a certain way, and what God had in store instead,” she wrote in an Instagram post.

Weider continued, “Obviously, you don’t know the full plan until you get to heaven but at least in my case I’m really starting to see things from God’s point of view of why things unfolded in my life the way they did.”

The former model and actress said she was glad she didn’t make it big in Hollywood the way she planned when she was younger “because if I did, I probably wouldn’t have been married for 12 years with two kids. Wouldn’t have built my whole life centered on Jesus and creating the Christian ministry Project inspired for young women. And now because of that, I have an army of people praying for me!”

“I feel so loved and encouraged by your prayers and kind messages,” Weider continued. “I don’t know how people go through something like this without God. So thankful Jesus is walking beside me through the unknown valley.”
