September 2017 Meeting From Oasis of Hope CCSG

2 Cor. 10:4-5 "For the weapons of our warfare are not of flesh, but mighty before God to the casting down of strongholds, casting down imaginations, and every high thing that is exalted against the knowledge of God, and bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ."

Philippians 4:8 "Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honorable, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things."

When cancer strikes, the battle for survival must be engaged at the mental, emotional and spiritual levels as much as at the physical level.  Thoughts of death, dying, resignation, despair, depression and hopelessness are as lethal as cancer itself.  The Lord knows that Satan will come against us with different thoughts and the Lord gives us supernatural weapons to win the battle for our minds and thoughts, including His power, His Word and His authority, when we've given our lives to Him.  Preparing for life's trials and tribulations means filling our heart, soul, and Mind with God's Word.  When your mind start to fret about the future remind yourself what God has provided for you today and take pleasure and gratitude for those things.  Remind yourself that you have no control over the future, and can do nothing about the past, so strive to live your life in light of "this day" that God has provided.  God's path requires us to take one day at a time, one treatment at a time, one stage at a time, one moment at a time.

Next month Oasis of Hope Christian Cancer Support Group Meeting will be on the third Tuesday November 21, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. at Bethany Assembly of God.  No October meeting.  We welcome you to join us for words of encouragement and prayer if you or your loved one is facing the cancer journey.
