今年初回台北過年和親友相聚，兼做體檢。預早安排做六科體檢包括眼、牙、心臟、婦科、背、神經和肝/膽內科。前五項體檢結果都正常。 在肝臟科報告前做晨禱時心內平安，因為相信主時刻同在，就獨自去診所。誰知醫生當場告訴我得了肝癌！多半是早上的禱告蒙恩，當時心裡真的很鎮定 ，沒有埋怨地問為什麼此事發生在我身上。只問醫生，下一步該怎麼做….

Do all things happen coincidental or pre-arranged? I used to think all a coincidence. But now I do believe events in life are part of God’s plan. I am so thankful!
Earlier this year, I went to Taipei visiting friends, and scheduled routine medical exam. I had a series of tests. Most results came back normal. During my devotion on the morning for the liver result, I felt very peaceful so decided to go to the clinic alone. The doctor dropped the shocking news on me—-I have liver cancer! Thanks to the morning prayer of grace, I was very calm. No question of “why me?” I just proceeded to ask the doctor about next steps….
As surgery was near, I became anxious and impatient. After surgery, the doctor advised me the cancer was at an early stage, no other treatment required. He instructed me to live a normal life and have routine checkup.
Inside my heart, I feel: “Blessed, so blessed, and forever blessed!”
God’s plan is so obvious: my husband was around to give me support; I was in Taiwan not US where I did not have medical insurance; good wishes from close-by relatives and friends; cared for by the best medical team; recovered in the comfort of our home my husband bought last year—-thanks to his long-term planning ahead wisdom. See how all things happened accordingly, praise the Lord!
This experience made me aware that I can endure brief suffering. If I can’t, God will carry me and make provision! I always have peace and joy walking with God! Sharing my insights:
* Embrace those who are good to me. When I feel negative, quickly seek help from a positive friend.
* Don’t worry about tomorrow, because we cannot control the future. Trust in God.
* Live in the present; accept facts of life; face problems and analyze your options; manage emotions.
* Cancer is not a terminal illness. Even so, keep up the hope to live the remaining life.
I had the six month re-check after surgery in the US, just when I am qualified for Medicare. Not a coincidence, trust God’s timing is perfect! I witness Lord’s amazing grace giving me hope of life! He grants me health and family. He teaches me to love Him and all people! Let all glory go to God!
Having had cancer seems like my misfortune. Thankfully, it was discovered early and treated properly. This was God’s lesson to strengthen my body and soul. I am so blessed!
