After many years in ministry, trusting and believing in God and who He is, and how to spread the “good news” of who He is and can be in the lives of others, Fuzz can say, “I’m still learning.”
The Rev. Enoch Fuzz, pastor of the Corinthian Missionary Baptist Church has spent a lifetime preaching, teaching, and walking in the footsteps that God has prepared for him. After a diagnosis of stage four lung cancer, he has faced many other health challenges (along with the threat of Covid-19 looming in the air daily). The doctor informed Rev. Fuzz this past week that he currently has a large polyp on his vocal cords that requires surgery to be removed.
This entire journey remains to be about the power of prayer. And, many prayers are needed in this circumstance also. There are added complications to this surgery because of the blood clot condition and the blood thinner medications that Pastor Fuzz currently takes. Pastor Fuzz said, “But like I said, my life is not in my hands.”
The lesson continually being learned in this journey is that one never knows what is around the corner as a result of one diagnosis. Rev. Fuzz learns to adjust and adapt to the “surprises” of each day and what it may bring. A visit to the doctor may lead to a visit to the hospital. A pain in the body may lead to another condition. Pastor Fuzz does not have to learn how to pray and the need for prayer. He is still learning to live his life as God intends through it all! It may take a little longer to shower. Getting dressed may be a little slower. It may not be a quick dash to go from the church to his house and vice versa. There may be many sleepless nights with whispered prayers for “the morning to come.” It may be “breathtaking” to stay out a little longer at an event. But, through all of the inconveniences that were previously done with no thought and with natural ease, they are still being done, nevertheless. Note: That’s something to shout about!
At this particular time, prayer is needed in regard to the polyp on his vocal cords. Pastor Fuzz asks, “Please start right now to join my many friends in prayer.”
“On this day, we ask that God will guide the hands of the doctors and give clear instruction to all of the persons assigned to Fuzz’s care. We ask that all corrections will be made that will make him whole. Give him comfort and may the polyp be removed with no complications. We ask these blessings in Jesus’ name. Amen.”
Continue to pray for Rev. Fuzz and a complete healing. He continues to pray for you also.
