Ephesians 5:20 NLT "Give thanks for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ."
Psalms 105:1-4 ESV "Oh give thanks top the Lord; call upon his name; make known his deeds among the peoples! Sing to him, sing praises to him; tell of all his wondrous works!  Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice!  Seek the lord and his strength; seek his presence continually!

On Tuesday Nov. 19th we had our Oasis of Hope Christian Cancer Support Group and I spoke on Thankfulness no matter our circumstance.  Max Lucado wrote: "Gratitude get us through the hard stuff.  To reflect on your blessings is to rehearse God's accomplishments.  To rehearse God's accomplishments is to discover his heart.  To discover his heart is to discover not just good gifts but the Good Giver.  Gratitude always leaves us looking at God and away from dread.  It does to anxiety what the morning sun does to valley mist.  It burns it up."  In Psalms 105:1 it says "Oh give thanks to the Lord..." if we lived that out everyday, it would impact everything.  In spite of our health and health struggles.  Every whisper of thanks honors God as being trustworthy and faithful, regardless of the circumstances or challenges we face.  God is faithful.  When we find it hard to give thanks, His mercy meets us over and over.

Next month Oasis of Hope Christian Cancer Support Group Meeting will be on the third Tuesday December 17, 2019 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.
