Christian artist Charles Billingsley opened up about his journey against the coronavirus saying he is grateful.
Charles Billingsley is a Christian singer and worship leader that began his career in the music industry back in 1992. He was the former worship pastor at Shadow Mountain Community Church before he decided to pursue concert ministry full-time one year ago.
Charles was among the 3 million individuals that contracted by the coronavirus. On March 27, he began experiencing the symptoms of the disease. He thought it was just a simple fever and continued to celebrate his wedding anniversary.
Battle against coronavirus
He was rushed to the hospital several days later as his symptoms began to worsen.
“My doctor told me … ‘If you weren’t in half-decent shape, you’d be dead,’” Charles said in an interview.
Miraculously, his family remained healthy the entire time.
“And somehow, someway, by the grace of God, my family stayed negative the entire time,” he added.
The 50-year-old singer’s health did not improve immediately, but after a few days of praying, a miracle happened. He eventually started to recover from the coronavirus. His battle with the virus has changed his outlook in life.
“It was a real wake-up call for me – just how grateful I am for life,” Charles said. “But also just how important it is to get exercise and be in shape and … just do the things you need to do. Because you never know when something like this is going to hit you. I hadn’t had a cold in three years.”
Charles is grateful to God for pulling him out of danger.
“I’ve learned a lot of lessons and I’m just so grateful to be coming out on the other side.”
