It’s easy to sing that God is good when all is well. But when we are in the dark valleys of our lives and our faith is weak, is it possible for us to trust, hope, and persevere?
The story of Mitas Ramos answers that question with a resounding “yes” and “amen.”
At a young age, Mitas became an orphan when her mother died of cancer and her father from depression. And just when she thought her misery was over, two more of her loved ones died.
Have you faced a recent loss of your loved one?
Has everything in your life been afflicting you with pain and sorrow?
Mitas was in the same place. With the death of her parents and siblings, the people so dear to her, Mitas was in deep pain.
“I had no time to grieve because of the pain of consecutively losing my parents and siblings. I just couldn’t,” Mitas painfully shared.
In her suffering, she found strength in the Lord. She shared that in her pain, Jesus was her companion as she waited for her healing.
“If it weren’t for God, I would have ended my life,” Mitas said.
In those painful moments, her faith was strengthened through the stories and testimonies featured in The 700 Club Asia. Being blessed by CBN Asia programs, especially Operation Blessing, Mitas decided to partner with God’s ministry—a faithful decision she would never regret.
Ever since that decision, her suffering was replaced with God’s blessing and overwhelming favor. In fact, God blessed her faith with an all-expense paid trip to Israel where she experienced God’s healing and comfort.
However, her faith was put to test once again. In 2016, Mitas found out that she has cancer.
But knowing that God was faithful and loving, Mitas stood her ground as she battled her illness with God as her source of strength and hope. Mitas experienced God’s promises in Psalms 55:22 which says,
“Cast your burden upon the Lord and He will sustain you; He will never allow the righteous to be shaken.”
Looking to God, Mitas experienced His goodness and grace. God provided for her needs in ways she could never imagine. People called and encouraged her, and she would receive bank deposits out of nowhere. Everyone was amazed at how God was moving in her life.
When asked how it was all possible, Mitas would say that she had no idea as well, but she knew that it was all from God.
In times when you feel that the world is against you, afflicting you with troubles here and there, know and believe that God works everything out for your good. Even though we struggle and suffer, we do so for a purpose. So in times of difficulty, choose to kneel and pray. Trust and hope.
There is more to your story than illness and suffering.
In response to her miracle experience, Mitas dedicated her life to spreading the goodness of God to the people around her.
“I saw God’s massive financial breakthrough when I began to give,” Mitas proudly shared.
CBN Asia opened her eyes to the importance of giving, she said. When she was lacking, she discovered that giving was more fulfilling. After all that she’s been through, Mitas declares the goodness of God to the world.
“In our lives, there is no problem or suffering that God cannot resolve.”
Despite our weary faith and our trials, we can persevere because we know God will not leave those who trust in Him. By faith, all will be all right in time.
“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.” (Revelations 21:4)
