Cancer: My Journey in time (part 119)

Have faith

by Wanda Clay
Rev. Enoch Fuzz

“It’s not any fun in being sick but I realize so many people are much worse off than I am.  As I left another doctor’s appointment Tuesday I got a call about a 36-year-old female who doctors are referring to Hospice Care. Imagine that just 36 years of age with 6 young children and doctors say less than a few months to live,” stated Pastor Enoch Fuzz.

Oftentimes there are people who feel sorry about their situation. Yet, there are some times when it is almost impossible to recognize how prayer, technology, and care can turn a medical situation around.  The Rev. Enoch Fuzz, pastor of Corinthian Missionary Baptist Church has been living with stage four lung cancer for a couple of years now. The word, “cancer,” is enough to bring on all types of issues, beginning with the individual’s thoughts of sorrow about what that really means in one’s lifestyle.    

Fuzz said, “Yes my back pain is excruciating and stage 4 lung cancer is frightening, but this is no longer a death sentence. I’m gonna be OK. Throughout my good days and bad days. I’m gonna get well.”

As a pastor, Rev. Fuzz continues to encourage his congregation and his community with ministry and witness.  He exemplifies the attitude that encourages acceptance and how faith works with prayer and positivity towards his situation.  He uses this constant reminder saying, “Though I struggle and get out of breath tryna put on my shoes, there are people who don’t have feet to put on a shoe. So I’m reminded to keep that positive outlook.  There’s someone else who’d love to be in my shoes.”

Pastor Fuzz is always in continuous prayer for you and this world and he ends his thoughts today as he encourages everyone to continue to pray, “I’m here to say, be grateful because there’s someone else who’s worse off than you.”

Thanks for reading and sharing, “Cancer:  My Journey in Time,” each week. We pray it will be a blessing to you.
