Hebrew 13:5 For He hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. R.C. Johnson Omaha Nebraska Just as a zebra cannot forget that it wears strips, or a mother forget her child, God does not forget his precious children in the mist of their pain, sorrow or confusion. Nor was He taken by surprise by our plights of sickness, bereavement or extreme discomfort. When a mother has to take her infant to the doctor to get shots, she knows the pain she is subjecting her child to; she knows the baby will scream when the skin is punctured; she knows her long arms that passes her child to the doctor will be followed by the small arms of her child reaching for her shortly before and after the shot. Yet the mother resist the temptation to grab the child because the pain of the shot has a purpose. The child has no Idea what the purpose is but the mother knows. And because the purpose is for the good of the child she allows the pain to take place in her presence without interruption. God is present in your pain, silent in our suffering and sustains us in our confusion. Trust Him this morning and throughout the day your coming joy may be delayed but it will not be denied.
The generation that defeats cancer! Only 5% of cancers are hereditary, but cancer is the leading cause of deaths in the U.S. killing 1,575 people daily. Approximately 2/3 are caused by using tobacco products, physical inactivity and poor diet choice. Its estimated that 2/3 of Americans are overweight or obese. At this rate by 2030, half of Americans will be obese. Obesity is poised to surpass tobacco as the leading cause of cancer within a few years. Generation Healthy Fitness Clubs are family friendly, they include yoga groups, running clubs and Zumba classes with the purpose of defeating obesity and cancer. Quarterly, events such as workshops, health fairs and 5k Run walks are held to bring all the groups together for social interaction and networking.
The Beyond Pink Movement is a campaign to educate on all forms of preventable cancers by utilizing all media platforms, community health fairs, and workshops. Culminated with a Defeat All Cancer 5K in October. Research indicate up to 60 percent of cancer cases and more than 50 percent of cancer deaths are preventable. However, only three pennies of each national healthcare dollar spent goes towards prevention. Our mission is to recruit one million social media ambassadors to help spread the word about preventable cancers, new research, healthy eating tips and fitness workouts. If we act now our prevention efforts can save 4.5 million lives and almost $600 billion over the next 25 years.
