November 2017 Meeting From Oasis of Hope CCSG

1 Thessalonians 5:18 " In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you."

2 Corinthians 12:9 "And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness."

This cancer journey is yours and what matters is your walk through it.  We didn't choose this battle, but we can look for God's hand in this battle and trust that He will use it for His glory!  The Lord wants an intimate walk with us which often comes through trials and brokenness.  If we let him God will intimately walk with us during our deepest trials.  In our intimate walk we will find inner strength if we strive to focus on His will for our lives instead of merely seeing the long rocky path stretched before our eyes.

Eventually, all of us will find ourselves in situations that are irrevocable and unchangeable- circumstances that cannot be undone- only counteracted.  We are forced to figure out how to take a worst case scenario and turn it into the best case scenario we can.  Sometimes the only thing we can do in our suffering is to allow God to turn the bitterness in our lives into something sweet. "When life gives you lemons - make lemonade."  Don't just focus on what is wrong in our life; focus on what God will do in your life.  God I might have cancer and I might be sick today - Thank you for giving me great friends and family.  Thank you for giving me another sunrise.

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