Proverbs 31 Ministries founder Lysa TerKeurst returned to social media with a big announcement recently.

"Long story short, I have breast cancer," TerKeurst shares in a video posted on her professional page. "I really am fine, but I think because I've been through so much in the past couple of years with my other surgery and my different dynamics going on with my family, I just kinda dreaded telling you."

TerKeurst, who has been on sabbatical since June, previously announced her separation from her husband, Art, in June.

"Not one prayer you've whispered on behalf of my family has been wasted. God is moving and we are so thankful," she posted to Facebook. "Art and I are both praying for a miracle and walking the road to healing. We are clinging to the promises of God on this journey full of twists and turns, ups and downs. There is often a process God will take people through to prepare us for the Promise. We are a work in process. And this process is often messy and unpredictable. I don't know exactly what tomorrow will look like but I do know who I'll be looking to ... The Lord ... whose love is unfailing and whose hand is the safest place to entrust my hope."

TerKeurst says her time away gave her the opportunity to discover her breast cancer.
