Full Schedule?

February 29, 2016

Monday morning and you look at your calendar for the week and wonder how you will get everything done. The days are full, the schedule is overwhelming  and your energy is lacking. First, stop and take a few minutes to pray and seek God’s wisdom and help and your day will be better. You will get through this week and when you look back you can Praise the Lord that He was with you through this busy time. Remember those minutes you spend with Him makes everyday go smoothly.

Philippians 4:13  I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

Pastors Need Prayer

February 28, 2016

“Don’t put your Pastor on a pedestal where he can get knocked off, put him on your prayer list where he can be lifted up.”

Today as you go to church pray for your pastor. He needs the power of the Holy Spirit and encouragement. D. L. Moody became a powerful evangelist because as he preached he had a group of people praying for him and thousands of people were saved though his ministry.

2 Thessalonians 1:11 Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfil all the good pleasure of his goodness, and the work of faith with power:

Tired of Answering Machines?

February 27, 2016

Have you made a phone call that is answered but a computer? This is an example of a church answering message: if you want to speak to the pastor press 1, for the assistant pastor press 2, youth director press 3, prayer requests press 4. And on it goes. 

Then when you get to the person you want this is the next message: Sorry, I am not at my desk right now, leave your number and I will return your call as soon as possible.

This is scenario is repeated in businesses, doctors offices almost any large company that you are trying to contact. Usually the call is unsuccessful or there is a long wait until you reach someone to help you.

There is One Person that you have a direct line to, that is always on call and that is God. He is always ready to listen and will always hear your requests. He never slumbers nor sleeps and is with you 24/7. What a wonderful Savior!

 Jeremiah 33:3  Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.

Are You in the Royal Family?

February 26, 2016

The theme for the Florida Strawberry Fesival this year is “Royal Fun for Everyone”. The SOS Events booth will have a banner asking, Are You In The Royal Family? 

Hopefully that will get the attention of people who are unsaved and their curiosity will bring them to the booth and our volunteers will explain the plan of salvation.

We love to get pictures of the new converts and this year they will wear a crown under a sign that says, I’m a child of the King. Our King is the Lord Jesus and please join us in prayer for the hundreds of people that pass by the booth. Pray the the Holy Spirit will draw them in and their hearts will be ready to accept Him as their Savior.

The Festival starts next week, March 3-March 13 but it is not to early to pray. Many will be saved and we will share the good news with you.

Proverbs 11:30 The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.

The Bible

February 25, 2016

“THE BIBLE IS THE ONLY THING YOU CAN TRUST IN THIS CHANGING WORLD!” This is a quote from a church sign but so true. The world around us may be changing faster than we ever expected but the Bible is always true, consistent and our handbook to get through the changes in the world situation and even the changes in our personal lives.

Proverbs 30:5 Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.

Prayer Requests

February 24, 2016

Some days are busier than others. Today, SOS Events ministry has many things going on at the same time and could use the prayers of everyone who reads the blog.

The Wednesday morning Flea Market in Plant City, Fl will be having people witnessing. Need prayers for the workers and especially that souls will be saved.

In the home office there is a training scheduled for people who want to learn to win souls. Pray for the teacher and future soul winners.

Also, the Strawberry Festival booth needs to be cleaned and decorated today for that event that begins next week. Two of our faithful workers will be doing that task this morning. Strawberry Festival  lasts for eleven days, twelve hours per day and the booth has to have twelve workers per day. There is still a need for workers and the office staff is working diligently to fill each slot with phone calls and emails. Prayer needed for workers and souls to be saved at this event.

The devil always tries to stop soul winning events and SOS Events founder Tom Curtis is having some health issues which require many doctor appointments at this busy time of year, which hinders Carolyn, his wife and himself for full attention to the ministry. He needs your prayers for complete healing of a wound on his left leg so they can put their energy into what they love, soul winning.

The Bible says to pray for one another and we ask that you bring these requests to God for us especially today and we will give God all the glory for the great answers to your prayers.

Ephesians 6:18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

Everyday With Jesus

February 23, 2016

There is a short little song that can lift your spirits and help you realize how sweet it is to walk with Jesus everyday. He has saved us, is keeping us and is coming again to take us to be with Him forever. 

Every day with Jesus

Is sweeter than the day before

Every day with Jesus

I love Him more and more.

Jesus saves and keeps me

And He’s the one I’m waiting for

Every day with Jesus

Is sweeter than the day before

Acts 1:11 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.

Jesus, Our Pilot 

February 22, 2016

Have you ever been on an airplane when the weather was bad? Maybe it is stormy with rain, thunder and lightning. You along with the other passengers are frightened. The plane even drops a few feet and some of your seat mates even let out a little scream. Now the fear even becomes greater, then the pilot takes the plane to a higher level and all of a sudden you are above the clouds looking down.

From this height you see the sunshine. Those dark clouds that frightened you just minutes before now look beautiful. Looking on them now they are fluffy and white. What is the difference? The pilot took the plane above the storm. He was there all the time and knew exactly what to do and how to get you through the storm.

Jesus is the Christian’s pilot. He knows the storm you may be going through. He is there all the time. Directing your path. He can go with you through the storm and will take you through it until you reach the sunshine and He will show you the beauty that comes after the storm passes.

Isaiah 61:3 To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified.

Favorite Bible Verse

February 21, 2016

Do you have a favorite Bible verse? Every Christian should have a life verse or a scripture that in good times or trials that verse or section of scripture will come to mind to help and comfort or help you rejoice.

My favorite is Proverbs 3:5&6. These two verses have guided me through many things in life and always remind me to trust in the Lord and He will direct and bring me through.

What is your favorite? You can comment on the blog and give your verse there. We would love to know what scripture that you love.

Proverbs 3:5&6 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart;and lean not unto thine own understanding.  In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Will There Be Any Stars in Your Crown?

February 20, 2016

1 Peter 5:4  And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.

I am thinking today of that beautiful land

I shall reach when the sun goeth down;

When through wonderful grace by my Savior I stand,

Will there be any stars in my crown?

Refrain:

Will there be any stars, any stars in my crown

When at evening the sun goeth down?

When I wake with the blest in the mansions of rest

Will there be any stars in my crown?

In the strength of the Lord let me labor and pray,

Let me watch as a winner of souls,

That bright stars may be mine in the glorious day,

When His praise like the sea billow rolls.

(refrain)

O what joy it will be when His face I behold,

Living gems at his feet to lay down!

It would sweeten my bliss in the city of gold,

Should there be any stars in my crown.

(refrain)

High King of heaven, my victory won,

May I reach heaven’s joys, O bright heaven’s Sun!

Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,

Still be my Vision, O Ruler of all.

Will we have a soul winners crown with the stars of the ones we have led to the Lord?
