Though the cancer has returned, so much from God Iíve learned,
Not from the reading of His Truth, but, my life is His living proof,
Of my Lordís Power and Grace, granting strength place to place,
Going through every trial and test, in the Lord Jesus I found rest,
Rest which only God could give, as through that trial I would live.
I learned, in God, just how I can, put my trust In God, even when,
Life situations turn for the worst, when I look to Christ Jesus first,
Especially when days were dark, Godís Grace always left a mark,
Sustaining me in grace and power, even through the darkest hour,
This as God proved in my life, a sustaining power of Jesus Christ.
In spite of cancer Iíve had health, which provides a greater wealth,
Far exceeding temporal prosperity, with gain acquired for eternity,
As His Grace is more than rife, working out His Purpose in my life,
Using my life just as God wills, while His Purpose The Lord fulfills,
And my cancer isnít the story, but, Godís Grace, Power and Glory.
So, as my path again has turned, I will lean upon what Iíve learned,
My total health may not be restored, but, Iíll always have The Lord,
Who, as He helps me understand, guides me with His gentle Hand,
In things I cannot comprehend, as my present life draws to an end,
With ahead a glorious destiny, when with Christ, I step into Eternity.

Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope:
because of the Lord's great love we are not
consumed, for his compassions never fail. They
are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
I say to myself, "The LORD is my portion;
therefore I will wait for him."The LORD is
good to those whose hope is in him, to the one
who seeks him; it is good to wait quietly for the
salvation of the LORD. (Lamentations 3:21-26)
