Dodie Osteen’s Healing Miracle
In 1981, Dodie Osteen needed a healing miracle. Doctors diagnosed her with metastatic cancer of the liver and told her, “You have only a few weeks to live.”
Today, thirty-five years later, Dodie Osteen is alive and well, with a powerful ministry of love and compassion to the hurting. Her book, “Healed of Cancer”, has encouraged the hearts and faith of tens of thousands throughout the world.
First published in 1986, “Healed of Cancer” is Dodie Osteen’s moving account of her fierce battle of faith to live, and not die. Dodie’s story is one of desperate, active faith. In spite of what her physical senses told her, she clung to her unshakeable faith in God. She continued to believe that God’s Word is true, and that God wanted to heal her.
Message of Hope for the Hopeless
Are you looking for hope in a seemingly hopeless situation? Dodie begins “Healed of Cancer” with a message of hope.
“I am so thankful to be alive today and to bring you a message of hope! That is what Jesus is – Hope. I feel like the Psalmist David who said, ‘O Lord…I pleaded with you, and you gave me my health again. You brought me back from the brink of the grave, from death itself, and here I am alive!’ (Psalm 30:2,3 TLB)”.
Dodie continues, “The Word of God is extremely important to people who are fighting a battle with their health, for often it’s the only hope they have. I know I would have died if it had not been for the Word of God…”
“Healed of Cancer” is an invaluable resource to anyone who seeks divine healing. In the book, Dodie Osteen shares her testimony and 40 healing Scriptures she used to win the battle over cancer. She shares physicians’ statements of her diagnosis and healing. And she lets us see into her heart.
Her Amazing Decision to Be Completely Vulnerable
Throughout her book, Dodie Osteen is intensely honest. She is honest about her weaknesses and fears, and how she struggled to overcome them as she quoted and acted on specific Bible verses. She is honest about her efforts to remove whatever might have been a hindrance to her healing.
Dodie allowed the Lord to search her heart and uncover previously hidden ungodly attitudes – attitudes such as pride, judging others, and unforgiveness. As each attitude surfaced, Dodie confessed it as sin and turned from it (repented). She wrote letters and apologized to people she thought she might have hurt.
Gradually, very gradually, Dodie Osteen was healed. To this day she gives God glory for her healing miracle and praises Him for changing her to become a more loving and compassionate person. Through her book “Healed of Cancer”, she offers hope and encouragement to all. Don’t give up!
