A Wife's Appeal

Seventeen years ago, I was a daughter whose father was diagnosed with nasopharyngeal cancer (NPC). He passed away three years later due to complications from chemotherapy. 

A month ago, I am a wife whose husband was diagnosed with NPC. 

Did I ask "Why?" Of course I did. I buried all memories of NPC when we buried our father. I said to myself, "Not again..."

"But Lord, I will trust you..."

This was sent to me by our friend Tammy and I just loved it.

This is a test of faith and so much more. Imagine how the enemy is using my greatest fear to shake my core. The difference now is I have a personal relationship with Christ. And it is all I need. 

As a wife, I am appealing for prayers for my husband's recovery and complete healing. Please cover our family with your prayers. 

It's amazing how the Lord has calmed me down. He assures me even in the small things that He is taking care of us. God has also revealed himself in so many ways. It has never been more clear what God wants me to do.

God speaks to me through different channels. A couple of days ago, he spoke to me through Rick Warren's Daily Devotional "Don't Waste Your Pain."

"Your greatest ministry will flow out of your pain — not out of your strengths or your talents but out of the painful experiences of your life. It is your weaknesses that help other people in their need, not your strengths."
"God can use the thing you hate the most in your life, that you’re most disappointed by, and that you wish had never happened. God says, “You can’t change what happened to you. But I can use it for your benefit and for my purposes. When you’re willing to share your brokenness, I can use it to help other people.”"
And I was bawling my eyes out after.

It will be a challenging couple of months of treatment and recovery. We are holding on to God's promises. We will fight this one.  

We claim healing. My husband will be healed. In Jesus' name. 

As Jesus was walking along, he saw a man who had been blind from birth. “Rabbi,” his disciples asked him, “why was this man born blind? Was it because of his own sins or his parents’ sins?” “It was not because of his sins or his parents’ sins,” Jesus answered. “This happened so the power of God could be seen in him. (John 9:1-3 NLT)
