Joyce’s Breast Cancer Story

Joyce’s Breast Cancer Story


JOYCE: YOU KNOW, 20–I DON’T
KNOW, IT WAS 1989, SO HOWEVER MANY YEARS AGO THAT WAS, 28? IS THAT WHAT YOU SAID?
BOY, YOU GOT SMART PEOPLE HERE. [AUDIENCE LAUGHING] JOYCE: I WAS GONNA HAVE
TO GET MY CALCULATOR OUT OF MY PHONE TO FIGURE THAT OUT. I WENT TO THE DOCTOR
FOR A CHECKUP AND FOUND OUT I HAD BREAST CANCER. WELL, I WAS OUT PREACHING FAITH,
YOU KNOW, I WASN’T GONNA GET BREAST CANCER, I WAS PRAYING
FOR OTHER PEOPLE TO BE HEALED. AND IT WAS THE VERY FAST-GROWING
TYPE OF CANCER; LITTLE, TINY TUMOR,
BUT VERY FAST-GROWING CANCER. SO, I DON’T KNOW HOW THEY WOULD
TREAT ME TODAY, BUT THEN THEY JUST SAID, “YOU HAVE TO HAVE
A MASTECTOMY. THERE’S NO MESSING AROUND
WITH THIS. THAT’S JUST WHAT YOU GOT TO DO.” SO, HERE I WENT FROM BEING
A WOMAN OF FAITH AND POWER TO BEING IN THE HOSPITAL
LOSING PART OF MY BODY. WELL, I HAD A DECISION TO MAKE. AND PROBABLY SOME OF YOU HERE
TODAY HAVE A DECISION TO MAKE, AND PROBABLY MANY OF YOU
WATCHING TELEVISION HAVE A DECISION TO MAKE. I LOVE WHAT PAUL SAID. HE SAID TO LIVE AS CHRIST,
TO DIE IS GAIN. YOU KNOW, NONE OF US WANT
TO DIE, BUT IF YOU’RE A BELIEVER, YOU DON’T NEED TO BE
AFRAID OF IT BECAUSE, HONESTLY, IF WE READ THE BIBLE, THINGS ARE
GONNA GET A WHOLE LOT BETTER WHEN WE’RE NOT HERE
THAN WHILE WE ARE HERE, SO. [AUDIENCE APPLAUDING] JOYCE: WHEN PEOPLE THAT ARE
BORN AGAIN LEAVE THIS REALM AND THEY GO HOME TO BE
WITH THE LORD, WE’RE REALLY NOT GRIEVING FOR THEM,
WE’RE GRIEVING FOR US. IT’S OUR LOSS THAT WE’RE
GRIEVING FOR, AND THAT’S RIGHT AND THAT’S PROPER AND THERE’S
NOT ANYTHING WRONG WITH THAT, BUT THERE’S A LOT OF REALLY
GREAT THINGS IN THE BIBLE THAT WE CAN REMEMBER THAT WILL
GIVE US COMFORT, ONE OF THEM BEING WHEN YOUR TIME COMES,
YOU ARE GOING TO SEE YOUR LOVED ONES AGAIN
BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT GONE, THEY’RE JUST NOT HERE ANYMORE. THEY’RE WITH GOD
AT THE RIGHT PLACE. AND SO, WE NEED TO REALIZE
THAT WE CAN HAVE A TYPE OF DEEP REST KNOWING THAT THINGS
ARE GOING TO BE OKAY. AND I WENT THROUGH THAT
WHEN I HAD THE BREAST CANCER. AT FIRST I WAS SO SCARED,
SO SCARED. AND I HAD TO WORK THROUGH THAT
AND COME TO THE POINT WHERE I BELIEVE THAT GOD WAS IN CONTROL
OF MY LIFE AND HE WAS GOING TO TAKE CARE OF ME
NO MATTER WHAT. AND YOU KNOW WHAT? I ENDED UP, I DIDN’T
HAVE TO HAVE ANY KIND OF CHEMO TREATMENTS, NO KIND OF ANYTHING,
THEY GOT EVERYTHING. EVERY YEAR, 28 YEARS IN A ROW
NOW, I GO AND I GET TESTED, AND EVERY YEAR, CLEAN REPORT,
EVERYTHING IS GREAT. [AUDIENCE CHEERING] JOYCE: NOW, A FEW YEARS AGO,
I WAS HAVING SOME REALLY SERIOUS BACK TROUBLE. AND SO, THEY FINALLY DECIDED
THAT THEY WERE GONNA LOOK AT MY WHOLE SPINE, AND THEY DID
SOME KIND OF A SPECIAL TEST, AND SO THEY CAME BACK
AND THEY SAID, “WELL, WE NEED TO DO A FURTHER TEST,” I FORGET
NOW WHAT THEY CALLED IT, BUT IT WAS SOMETHING WHERE THEY
JUST LOOK AT YOUR WHOLE BODY BECAUSE THEY SAID, “YOU’VE GOT
SOME LESIONS ON YOUR SPINE THAT COULD BE CANCER
THAT HAS METASTASIZED FROM YOUR BREAST CANCER.” WELL, CAN YOU IMAGINE
HOW THAT MADE ME FEEL? OH MY GOSH, WELL,
GOT ANOTHER DECISION TO MAKE. SEE, WE’RE ALWAYS MAKING
DECISIONS, AREN’T WE? ABOUT HOW WE’RE GOING TO HANDLE
THINGS AND WHAT WE’RE GOING TO DO. SO ONCE AGAIN, I HAVE TO SAY,
“WELL, GOD, I’M IN YOUR HANDS. I HOPE THAT’S NOT THE CASE,
BUT I BELONG TO YOU. I TRUST THAT YOU’RE GONNA
TAKE CARE OF ME.” AND SO YOU WAIT IT OUT DAY
BY DAY BY DAY. WELL, SO THEY DID THIS TEST
ON MY WHOLE BODY, LOOKED AT MY WHOLE BODY, I THINK THEY
CALLED IT A PET SCAN, AND THEY CAME BACK AND THEY SAID,
“WELL, INTERESTING THING, IT LOOKS LIKE ON YOUR SPINE,”
I LOVE THE WAY THE WORLD PUTS IT, “THAT YOU HAD CANCER
AT ONE TIME, BUT SOMEHOW OR ANOTHER, IT HEALED ITSELF.” [AUDIENCE CHEERING] JOYCE: WOW. [AUDIENCE CHEERING] JOYCE: WELL, YOU CAN IMAGINE
HOW THAT MADE ME FEEL. AND SO, THE GOOD NEWS IS,
IS THEY LOOKED AT MY WHOLE BODY AND THEY SAID, “YOU DON’T HAVE
ONE TINY BIT OF CANCER IN THERE ANYWHERE.” SO I GOT A GOOD PICTURE
OF THE WHOLE THING AND CAME OUT OF IT FEELING BETTER
THAN I DID BEFORE I WENT IN.

  1. Amen, God brought me through breast cancer 7 years ago and I went through chemo and radiation for what they called aggressive. I was cured. Today I'm diagnosed with endometrial cancer and found out it's aggressive, had surgery and praise God, it was not in the lymph nodes, but next week I get fitted with a port then will have chemo and a little radiation. I know the cross already won the war. Thank you Joyce Meyer for encouragement.

  2. Praise The Lord!! Thank you ma'am for sharing this testimony.it is so encouraging.we are in God's care,and He can never go wrong.Amen &Amen

  7. Repent beleive in the Lord Jesus (God with us Emmanuel) his virgin birth of the holy spirit to his mother Mary, his giving up his life on the cross unto death for our sins and that God raised him from the dead defeating death hell and the grave so that through him we would be saved. All have sinned and fall short of Gods glory and without Jesus you will NOT enter heaven. He is the way the truth and the life and no man come to him but by Jesus!!!!
