I thank God for His mercies and grace for His healing of my fourth stage lung cancer. In March 2011, I went for a routine check and the X-ray showed a shadow in my right upper lobe.
As I sat in front of the doctor, all kinds of questions raced through my mind. A biopsy and scan revealed more bad news. The shadow turned out to be a 2.2×2.3×2.8 nodule on the right upper lobe with additional ground glass opacity nodular lesions in the left upper and right lower lobe. It was confirmed that I had advanced multi-focal cancer involving both lungs. As the news sank in, I began to be filled with fears and anxieties. I felt that I did not have much time left. I started to clear and dispose my stuff. I cried out to our Lord for help and He heard my cries for He said to me in Psalms 118:17, “I shall not die but live to declare the works of the Lord.”
I was put on oral chemotherapy and I began to suffer the side effects.
By God’s grace, on 30 October 2011, I stepped into Cornerstone Community Church. I believe God was leading me as I was seeking Him. The worship songs and messages gave me comfort and assurance that Jesus is Lord and has power over heaven and earth. Nothing is too hard or impossible for Him. I claimed His Word in Jeremiah 33:3, “Call unto me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things which thou knowest not.”
On 27 November 2011, after the service, I responded to the altar call by Mattheus Van der Steen. Praise the Lord, He led me to step forward. During the anointing prayer, I had an excruciating pain in my head and as a sister continued to pray, the pain went away.
I thank God for sending Martin, Soh Hian and Francis to visit, pray and encourage me through this difficult period. Their belief and confidence in our Lord Jesus who will heal gave me peace. After each service, I stepped forward for the healing prayer. Praise the Lord, two weeks before my monthly review, I had the peace that I was already healed because He is my Jehovah-Rapha.
On 12 December 2011, God gave me an excellent report. The X-ray films showed the lungs were all cleared except for the scarring in the right upper lobe and the blood tests of the liver, kidneys and everything else has returned to normal.
Thank You Jesus for your healing! All glory to Your name!
