‘Cancer: My Journey in Time’ (part 149)

A good day to live

“So, I feel lousy. So what? How many other people feel lousy?” Maybe on occasion this has been your response to how you’re feeling. Why? Because we don’t always feel well for whatever reasons. So what do you do on those occasions?

The above quote was from Rev. Enoch Fuzz, pastor of Corinthian Missionary Baptist Church. He said it referred to his diagnosis of stage four lung cancer and all of its side effects. Nevertheless, he is still concerned with the fact that other people may also be feeling ‘lousy’ as well.

“No one is sending condolences to my family,” Rev. Fuzz also said. That makes for a good day, no matter how a person may be feeling. “God has given me another opportunity and another chance to get it right,” Rev. Fuzz said. “So I decided to live. Let me schedule some meetings. There are lots of things to do. So I don’t feel well, but Jesus died not feeling well and not treated well either. I feel like living, I feel like getting well. I don’t feel like dying today.”

With thoughts about Jesus and His journey while on earth, the Bible teaches us that Jesus always knew his purpose. He also continued to do his work even when he knew how he would be treated, betrayed and abused. As children of God, we too, should consider our purpose and how we react to our conditions and feelings at any given time.

Because his work is never done, Rev. Fuzz chooses to make some calls and contacts regardless of how he feels, because he says there is a lot to do. God’s work is never done. Therefore, Rev. Fuzz recognizes he also has work that is never done.

Keep praying because there is a lot to do if you know your assignment. It’s a good day to live. Pray for Rev. Fuzz and his healing. He consistently prays for everyone and always has thoughts of other people feeling worse than him.

“Today is a good day to live,” concluded Rev. Fuzz.
