The Lord's Triumph Over Cancer

by judelesemann

A difficult time
An enemy lurks within
Cancer is its name
An illness I can't accept
Sucking the life blood from me

Now how do I cope
With so ugly a monster
Who stole within me
Fighting to consume my life
I must face this grim challenge

I fall to my knees
Call upon my Father God
It is not my fight
He is my Great Physician
I yield all to my Maker

The demon within
Must flee at His beckoning
My flesh feels the flight
A loving warmth flows through me
As the renewal takes place

It is not my fight
But the Lord's promise to me
That By His stripes I was healed
I am whole once more
By the grace of God I thrive

I was diagnosed with colon cancer and told my tumor was massive. They said my lymph nodes would be overloaded with cancer and I would need chemo and radiation. I was given a grim diagnosis. My first response was one of total horror that something had taken over my body with such awful consequences. But quickly a calming spirit overcame me. I knew the Lord was with me and He would battle this intruder. I had surgery but had no lymph node involvement, had no chemo, had no radiation. Seven years later I am cancer-free. My God is in control. Praise the Lord!
