2015 April Message from Oasis of Hope CCSG

     At this month’s meeting, we were encouraged to be joyful and do good.  “As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith” (Galatians 6:10).  The Bible instructs us to do that which is good.  “…for a man to rejoice, and to do good in his life” (Ecclesiastes 3:12).

      If you want to live a life of contentment, choose joy.  Get in the habit of writing down your blessings.  Thank God for how far he has brought you.  The best way to be joyful is to focus on the positive and see how you can help others.  Keep your focus on the moment not on your future.  Trust God to take care of your future.

     Each day, walk your journey with the joy of the Lord, for “…the joy of the Lord is [your] strength”  (Nehemiah 8:10).  Look for daily opportunities to do good.  Pray that God will bring people to mind to do good to get your focus off your  problems.  As you are faithful to obey God's word, God will be faithful to keep his word to you.  He will give you strength and joy for the journey.

    For more words of encouragement, join us on the third Tuesday of each month for our Oasis of Hope Christian Cancer Support Group meeting.  We meet at 7:00 P.M. in the fellowship hall of Bethany Assembly of God.  We hope to see you soon.
