Last year I have been diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism. Aside from having series of episodes, I was advised that my other organs have already been affected as well. My case had been a candidate for thyroid cancer and stroke. And my body was no longer responding to the medications. It also came to the point wherein I had to stop singing for awhile (and have been told that I might not get back into it anymore since my voice is becoming hoarse) and had given up my usual activities as part of my treatment.
It was one of the most challenging seasons of my life. Yet I held on to this:
“I will remain confident in this; I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.” Psalm 27:13
I remember reciting this Scripture in my head inside the ER when I couldn’t move and speak, and mentally singing “Good Good Father” inside the hospital room one night with that tube inside my body. Though most of the time, I know I wasn’t really that confident at all. I got scared. I was frustrated. There were moments when I don’t know what I’ve been fighting for anymore. Yet Jesus Christ, faithful as He is… never fails to comfort my weary soul. He’s the best Comforter there is!
Just this week, after some tests… I received a news from my doctor. And God knows how I dreaded for this week. I. Was. Anxious. Ha!
“You’re now normal as other people! You can now do whatever you want!” she said.
Woah! Just like that. I am well. I am healed! For the longest time, my body was not responding to the treatment, yet I am free! Right then and there, my doctor cancelled the need for biopsy AND surgery!!! I am healed!
Looking back I know in my heart that God saw every tear and He heard every prayer. Throughout the process, I have learned that God is never threatened by our circumstance because He is big enough to use every situation for His glory.
That’s just how He is. That’s Who He is.
More than the healing miracle of Christ, I thank Him for the journey; leading me from grace to grace and strength to strength. It was on those difficult moments that I was able to see His heart for me. That even if my situation proves otherwise, I know that He is still good and His love for me endures forever!
I also thank the Lord for my family and friends and to everyone who prayed and fought with me in this battle. You believed at times when I couldn’t. I’m so blessed by your lives! 😉
“My health may fail, and my spirit may grow weak, but God remains the strength of my heart; He is mine forever.” Psalm 73:26
