In a battle against cancer, I think there are three battle fields: body, finance, and spirit. Each one is tough to fight but the toughest field is spirit where fear and doubt come in all the time.
We are somehow curious and want to peak at scary stuff, such as horror movies, haunted houses, ghosts, or death.
Increasing access numbers to a cancer blog of someone who is dying is most likely because of that reason. They want to know how cancer patients die.
Yet, once they know it, the fear of death becomes much bigger and horrifying.
Buddha said we are walking towards death as soon as we are born – according to a history teacher in high school, where I once was working as a bilingual aide. As I learn what death looks like, this perspective depresses me.
On the other hand Joni Tada, a quadriplegic Christian evangelist, who has sent wheelchairs all over the world, said it this way.
“ We move day-by-day toward “the better country.”
“Through we still suffer as we march toward Zion (the Kingdom of God), we become cities on a hill, and lights on a lamp stand for all to see and take courage from that welcome dalliance. “
“Earth’s pain keeps crushing our hopes, reminding us this world can never, never satisfy us. Only heaven can.”
“The fact is, this world never was our true Home. We’ve always been passing through…We’ve always been ‘ marching to Zion.”
“So we set our focus not on what is seen, but what is unseen. For what is seen is only temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”
How greatly our perspective changes once we know God, Father of Jesus! He is the only weapon in my battle field of spirit. I cannot imagine going through this battle even one day without Him. Getting to know Him through Jesus was the best thing that has ever happened in my life.
