What is Life?

God’s plan is perfect…and He makes no mistakes! It’s great how He created and molded people for His purpose. Just this evening around 6pm, my brother called and told us that our niece (Dawna) is already with the Lord. Maybe some of you knew about her situation.

I’m writing right now with tears and don’t know what to write but our God knows and sees every tear that falls and He understands…

This is the story behind. My niece was diagnosed with leukemia when he was 6 years old. She’s the same age with our eldest son. Then she had undergone chemotherapy and was healed.

When we went back to the Phil. last year to visit the family, her sickness recurred, she had undergone a lot of blood transfusions and was given heavy medicines just to survive. We prayed a lot for her and the Lord answered our prayers, 4 days before we left and went back to Thailand– she was healed. You can read here to know the real story.

God has been so gracious to her and to our family. She was totally healed and all the diagnosis was normal, Her Mama cried a lot when she read the result. Even the doctor would agree that it’s God’s power. Just imagine in the midst of swelling tummy, legs and jaundice eyes... all of a sudden she was okay.

Just recently, again the sickness came back, we’re already confused why? We always believe it’s the work of the enemy… but we kept trusting the Lord for her to survive. But God has His own plan… we may not understand, it’s hurting but we need to accept that life is like a vapor that passes by … it won’t stay long. I tried to call my sister ( the mother of Dawna) and she told me that Dawna is already with the Lord.

They ( Dawna and her Mama) visited our eldest sister in the morning yesterday and Dawna told her Mama that she missed her cousins and continued to say that she could not remember something, she couldn’t understand. Her Mama saw that there is a blood clot on her head and they brought her to the hospital for check up and immediately she was brought to the ICU but she did not stay longer, the Lord took her at 5pm yesterday. It was sudden and hurts us but everything was under His hands.

I like this song and I quote:

God is too wise to be mistaken
God is too good to be unkind

So when you don’t understand
When you don’t see His plan
When you can’t trace His hand
Trust His HEART….

We have the desire to go home and see her for the last time. But we are still waiting for God’s perfect timing and the provisions too because we need to go as a family.
