Blessings in cancer

Posted by Laureen at Saturday, August 22, 2009

My doctor said the result of my thyrogobyrin test was very good. He confirmed that there is no recurrence of my thyroid cancer. When I heard the report, I felt like it was my birthday again. Yippee!

You know what, my 'cancer experience' a few years ago gave me a new life. When I came into the reality of possibly facing death I was able to ask why. "What if God would take me now or later. Was I ready? Was I able to live my life in fullness or was I able to fulfill my purpose in life here on earth? In short, I was able to value my life.

I was then able to see the world in a new perspective .I learned to appreciate life more, and appreciate whatever blessings I received whether big or small. Whenever I encounter difficulties, these do not affect me so much anymore because my cancer experience helped me to know God deeper and everything is ALL about HIM. And no matter what happens, He is the reason of our existence and ultimately, we will all face Him in the end.

And since we are not in control of our time table here on earth, I learned to value my love one's more and the people around me especially those who are lost.

To God be the glory!
