"The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. "The Lord is my portion," says my soul, "therefore I will hope in him."  Lamentations 3:22-24
 "Be still, and know that I am God...God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.  Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way...The Lord of hosts is with us."(Excerpts from Psalm46)  Philippians 4:13 "I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me."

In a storm (like cancer) you have to go with what you know not what you feel.  Feelings can be deceiving.  We want so much to walk by sight and not by faith!  But we need to walk by faith and remember He will carry us through the hard times when they come. We may know all this and believe all of this in our heads, but some days this truth does not rest so easily in our hearts. Sometimes, our hearts may resists fully embracing this truth and the peace that is would bring.  Some moments, we can become overwhelmed with anxiety about our cancer journey that we don't even know how to pray.  Then I would say be reminded of the scriptures above.  Scripture can be a great way to get through the times of anxiety.  We need to let faith arise in our souls to remind ourselves that there is a healer, that His love is deeper than the sea, that His mercy is unfailing and His arms are a fortress for the weak.  We can walk through this cancer journey because we can do all things through Christ which strengthens us!

Next month Oasis of Hope Christian Cancer Support Group Meeting will be on the third Tuesday June 20, 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.
