THE CROWELL BEAT CANCER GAME PLAN
This is my personal game plan for dealing with cancer. It is working! My HOPE is it can work for you as you face your possible insults, difficulties, hardships, and persecutions.
FROM ST. PAUL IN THE HOLY SCRIPTURES (I Thess. 5:16-18)
- Be joyful always.
- Pray without ceasing.
- In everything (even cancer) give thanks.
FROM FRED CROWELL’S BELIEF SYSTEM
- God is who He says He is.
- God does what He says He will do.
- I am who God says I am.
- I can do all things through Him who gives me strength.
- God is alive and active in me.
- I believe God.
- I live solely to love God with all my heart, soul and mind.
FROM FRED CROWELL’S ADAPTATION OF ST. IGNATIUS’ PRAYER
Lord, take all of my life — my freedom, my body, mind, memory, knowledge, understanding, and all my will. All that I have and call my own (even life and breath) I give back to you. Do with it as you wish. Give me only your forgiveness, love, mercy and grace.
FROM FRED CROWELL’S DNA EXPERIENCE
For ten years, cancer has attacked me physically and emotionally: physical pain, loss, depression, fear worry. Today with joy I can encourage you, whatever your challenge may be, to try saying the above disciplines over and over until they become your new DNA. Personally, I have no expectations of physical healing, yet I have confidence my destiny is heaven. I am a free man as I write these words. My inner healing is because Jesus has made this affliction livable and a showcase of His power. I have experienced what St. Paul experienced when Jesus said to him, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness.” (II Corinthians 12:9).
