Lysa TerKeurst, the president of Proverbs 31 Ministries, said God miraculously healed her from cancer. reports that TerKeurst recently underwent a risky surgical procedure to remove half her colon. She had been prepared for the worst.


Instead, however, she was miraculously healed.


On her Facebook page TerKeurst shared how she was healed when doctors were very skeptical that she would survive.


"Lysa, I don't like throwing around the word miracle. But the fact you survived this is a miracle. The pathology report showed your cells were in a state of death," TerKeurst said her doctor told her.


“I had no words. Except ‘thank you,’” she continued. “Thank You, God. Thank you friends who prayed me through this. Thank you to this surgeon who finally figured out why I was in excruciating pain for days and days in that hospital bed. Thank you that I still get to do life. So, here I sit. But this quiet Monday morning is different.”


TerKeurst added that she takes life less for granted now:


“I have a sacred realization. I have 15 staples in my belly. And I have a complete refocus on just how precious every second of every day truly is. Might we all dare to whisper ‘it's a gift’ to God today. When the baby is crying and the deadlines are pressing and the stress is mounting and the enemy whispers ‘just get through this crappy day.’ Look up and shame the enemy back to hell by acknowledging today is a gift. A gift from a good, good Father. And then look, seek, and dive deeply into what a true gift it is.”
