    "Let everything that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord" (Psalm 150:6).  Some days the last thing we feel like doing is giving praise to God.  Pain wrecking our thoughts causes us to forget the promises of our God.  Reports from the doctor cause us to forget the truth of His word. Fear of tomorrow causes us to forget the blessings of the moment.  Pain hurts, news scares, and fear paralyzes.  This is why we need to focus on the blessings of God.  When we choose to think on the positive instead of the negative thoughts, we are allowing our minds to have room for hope.  As we think on the good things God has done, we can then praise Him for His goodness.  As we praise Him, we are putting ourselves in a position to receive even more of His blessings.   Praise brings us into the presence of God.   God is "a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him" (Hebrews 11:6).  Praise Him today.  He is worthy of all praise.
    Join us the third Tuesday of each month as we come together to support one another on our cancer journey.  We look forward to having you join us at the Oasis of Hope Christian Cancer Support Group meeting on December 17, 2013, at  7:00 P.M.
