August 2017 Meeting From Oasis of Hope CCSG

Lamentations 3: 22-23: "Through the Lord's mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not.  They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness."

Jeremiah had been writing about how difficult and depressing his circumstances were in captivity.  But then suddenly, in the middle of all this, his thoughts take a positive turn toward the character of God.  Mercies is used 250 times in the  Old Testament.  An all-inclusive term for God's love, goodness, forgiveness, compassion, and faithfulness.  When Jeremiah meditated on this, he remembered That God had many mercies available every single day.  When he struggled with discouragement he focused on yet another characteristic - Faithfulness.  When we become discouraged we should do what Jeremiah did, stop and remember God's faithfulness.  When the storms of cancer overwhelm us, we need to get alone and reflect on this amazing truth: God is faithful!  He is faithful and full of mercy.  Remember where He has already brought you from and He continues to walk with us.  In the midst of your battle remember to put your faith in God!

Next month Oasis of Hope Christian Cancer Support Group Meeting will be on the third Tuesday September 19, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. at Bethany Assembly of God.  We welcome you to join us for words of encouragement and prayer if you or your loved one is facing the cancer journey.
