My covid Journey — The Three C's — Christ, cancer, covid

cancer and covid are similar diseases. 
Both cause 
fear, and 
death as 
each maim and eat away at organs essential to live. 
cancer and covid attack in varying degrees. 
Whether we barely notice the symptoms, or 
suffer for the rest of our shortened lives, 
no one would choose either of these little c's.

I have cancer and I am still recovering from covid.
 My human suffering with covid was more severe than with cancer. 
I came closer to death with covid than with cancer. 
With covid I was isolated, 
with cancer I was surrounded by my loved ones.

 Leaving for my covid hospitalization, 
I could barely think, but 
I knew my Bible and my book, 
Praise the Lord and Pass the Chemo: A Hopeful Response to a Hard Reality would
 bring comfort and a reminder that 

Christ is my big C. 
Not covid. 
Not cancer.  

"Christ is the Big C" is 
a chapter in Praise the Lord and Pass the Chemo. 
Be encouraged by the following excerpt from that chapter. 
I've replaced the word "cancer" with the word "covid." 
They both apply. 
 Believe me!
 I know.

"covid is not the big C. Christ is the big C.

If we let covid replace Christ as our big C, 
our hearts may become bitter, or 
angry, or 
depressed, or 
anxious, or
 afraid, or
 all of these. 

 But when Christ takes His rightful place in our hearts,
 He fills us with His love,
trust, and

So when the doubts and anxieties arise 
— and they will — 
let us remember who is the big C in our lives.

 Focus on Christ, not covid. 

And this is the secret
 — Christ lives in you! 

Who is more powerful in your life? 
Christ or covid?

 covid can eat away at your bones and cells,
 but covid can't touch your soul.

 covid can steal time,
 but covid can't take away a moment God planned for you. 

covid will not win the victory for your life.
 Christ already won it.

 Jesus Christ is the Big C.

 Keep your eyes on Jesus Christ the healer, 
not on covid the destroyer. 

covid is vicious, 
but Christ is the Victory!"

Christ is the Big C. 

"I have been crucified with Christ; and
 I no longer live, 
but Christ lives in me." 
Galatians 2:20

If you are looking for a book for yourself or to give a covid patient, I recommend Praise the Lord and Pass the Chemo. Trust me. Covid patients need A Hopeful Response to the Hard Reality of covid.
