“Bless the Lord, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name!
Bless the Lord, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits:
Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases,”
I was woken up one morning by an unbearable pain on the left side of my abdomen. Alone in Berlin, I knew I had to call for an ambulance to get me to the hospital. The medics arrived in no time and decided which hospital to send me after a quick triage. At the hospital, I was diagnosed with dermoidcyst on my left ovary and had to be admitted for an emergency surgery to remove both the cyst and ovary.
Thankfully, my physical recovery was smooth and within days, I was discharged. However, my doctor recommended long-term medication to prevent another occurrence of cyst, especially on my right ovary. I was troubled as long-term medication would have side effects so I asked the Lord to show me His will.
One Sunday, during the time of worship, my pastor decided to ask the congregation to share a word or verse from the Lord. The Lord quickened Psalm 103 and I started to declare verses 1 to 5 over myself.
I felt the burden lifted and I knew that the Lord’s will was for me to trust Him and to preserve my right ovary. My children are a testimony of how God kept His word and promise to me. - By HG
