    "And the Lord, he it is that doth go before thee; he will be with thee, he will not fail thee, neither forsake thee: fear not, neither be dismayed" (Deuteronomy 31: 14).  These words that the Lord spoke to Joshua as he was getting ready to go into a new land, are words that can encourage us as we continue our walk along this cancer journey with all of its unknowns.  Even though we may be on a cancer journey, the Lord still has a plan for each of our lives, and He promises to be with us.  We are not alone. God has promised to never leave us nor forsake us. This is true even if we are faced with challenges of a cancer journey.
    We can have hope in spite of our journey because the Lord is faithful.  "This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope.  It is the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.  They are new every morning; great is thy faithfulness" (Lamentations 3:21-23).  Meditating upon God's word can help reduce anxiety.  "Be still, and know that I am God..." (Psalm 46:10. Find peace in he presence of the Lord.
    Join us every third Tuesday of the month at 7:00 P.M. for our monthly Oasis of Hope Christian Cancer Support Group.  We welcome you to join us for more words of encouragement.
