Between the 2 C’s - Cancer and Christ, Christ is the bigger C

In June 2015, less than a month after my 27th birthday, I was diagnosed with stage IV invasive breast cancer.

I had known God since young, and had occasionally attended church, but I never felt any closeness with Him. In fact, I only remember praying days after my diagnosis. I had the support of my family and friends, but I felt like I was fighting for my life all alone.

Having stage IV cancer meant that I had a growth of aggressive tumours. Even surgery could not contain it. Cancer not only hurt me, it hurt my loved ones too. Adeline, my dearest friend of 13 years never stopped praying for me; and with her constant encouragement and invitation, I finally went to New Life Community Church in October. There, for the first time, I felt a connection with God.

I found support in the amazing LifeNet that I joined. On my very first visit, everyone gathered around me to pray for total restoration of my body. I look forward to going to LifeNet every week as it helps me get to know God better, and I feel like I’m part of a big family!

I learnt for myself that when God rains His love on us, He pours! The Holy Spirit overflows me through words. I can’t stop speaking about God, praising God, and He continues to work wonders in my life every day.

This is how my body looked like when I was first diagnosed in June 2015 (refer to diagram 1). You can make out that the big black spot is my heart. Every other spot in the image was cancer. My body was dying, and I did not even know.

Looking at how extensive my cancer was, I did not even dare to pray for full healing. What I asked for, was a second chance in life, so that I could be useful to God in the days I have left. And as my relationship with God grew deeper, I knew that by Jesus’ stripes, I would be healed.

In November 2015, I got another scan when I completed chemotherapy. And by Jesus’ stripes, I was healed (refer to diagram 2).

I am one of the rare patients who have had a complete response to my treatment (refer to diagram 3). My doctors were surprised, they told me that I am lucky, but I told them that it’s Jesus. ALL of the cancer is gone, it can only be Jesus. Amen!

I started this fearful journey alone, and I ended it with God walking with me. And today, I stand before you to attest, that between Cancer and Christ, Christ, is the bigger C.

All glory to God!

20156月,就在我27岁生日的一个月内,我被诊断出患有第4 期侵袭性乳癌。

我从小就认识主,偶尔也会上教堂,但却不曾觉得与祂亲近。事实上,我只记得我是在被诊断出有乳癌后的几天才开始祷告的。虽然我有家人与朋友的支持,但我却觉得我是在独自与病魔作战。

患有第4 期乳癌表示我的肿瘤已经在迅速的扩张,连手术也不能阻止它们的扩散。癌症不止伤害了我,也伤害了那些爱我的人。我相识13年的好友,Adeline,她从来没有停止过为我祷告。在她不断的鼓励与邀请下,我终于在201510月来到了新生社区教会。这是我生平第一次觉得与神有联系。

我在我奇妙的生命网里找到了支持。我还记得我第一次去到生命网的经历,每个人都围绕着我,为我祷告我能得到完全的医治。从此,我每个星期都非常期盼去生命网因为它帮助我更认识神,同时我也觉得我是一个大家庭的一份子!

我亲自学习到,当神向我们施爱时,祂的爱是浇灌下来的,是涌流无阻的!圣灵充满了我,祂的话语从我口中流露出来。我不能停止谈论神,赞美祂。直到今天,祂还在我生命中行大能奇妙的事。

图像一展示了我在20156月初被诊断出乳癌的身子。那大大个的黑点是我的心脏,其余的点子都是我的癌细胞。我的身子在死去中,我却不知晓。

看到我的癌细胞的扩散程度,我都不敢祷告我能得到完全的医治。我只求神给我第二个机会,让我在我剩余的时日里可以能被神使用。当我与神的关系变得更深厚时,我知道通过耶稣所为我受的鞭伤我必得医治。

201511月,当我完成我的电疗后,我再一次做了一个扫描。通过耶稣为我受的鞭伤,我得着医治(请参考图像二)。

我是属于少数稀有的癌病患者,能够完全让治疗在我身上起效用(请参考图像三)。我的医生们都很惊讶,他们告诉我,我很幸运。不过我告诉他们,我不是侥幸,而是因为我有耶稣,是祂医治了我。现在,一切的癌细胞都被消除了,这只能够是耶稣的作为。阿门!

我孤独的开始了这个可怕的抗癌旅程,但神却与我同行,陪我走完这个旅程。今天,我站立在这里,像你们大家见证在癌症与基督之间,基督是胜出的。

一切荣耀都归于主!
