2015 June Message from Oasis of Hope CCSG

posted Sep 11, 2015, 4:43 AM by Webmaster Support

God gives us a “garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness…that he might be glorified” (Isaiah 61:3).  Every day we need to look for ways to be thankful.  “In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you” (I Thessalonians 5:18).  We need to live with an attitude of gratitude.

One way to have an attitude of gratitude is to give God praise.  Praise him in the morning. Praise him at noon. Praise him when the sun goes down. Have a heart that is filled with praise all day long.

Another way to have an attitude of gratitude is to sing to the Lord.  It is hard to be negative when your mouth is filled with songs of thanksgiving to the Lord.

Finally, another way to gain the attitude of gratitude is to surrender to the Lord. “For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain” (Philippians 1:21).

Trust God even when things don’t go as planned.  God uses even the painful experiences to make something beautiful.  “He hath made every thing beautiful in his time” (Ecclesiastes 3:11).

We are here to support you with encouragement and prayers.  If you are traveling life’s journey burdened with cancer, come join us at our next Oasis of Hope Christian Cancer Support Group meeting.  You’ll be glad that you did.  We meet the third Tuesday of each month at 7:00 P.M. We hope to see you there.
