Pay Attention!

August 3, 2022

Do we really pay attention when we read the Bible or do a Bible Study? Are we ready to believe everything someone tells us about God’s Word?

Yesterday there was a mistake in the Reference to the Bible verse in this blog. Did you see it? Is there really a book in the Bible called coronavirus? NO!

The reference should have been Corinthians, but in haste the reference was not checked. We need to pay attention when studying God’s Word.

Someone did catch the error and actually the staff of SOS Events laughed over this mistake. We do apologize for the error, but it has taught us a lesson.

Move On!

April 6, 2022

Sometimes we let things in our past keep us from moving forward.

The sins, the tragedy or poor relationships keep reoccurring in our mind and we feel depressed or unable to do what we know we should to get on with our life today.

God does not want us to dwell in the past. He has forgiven all our past sin, He wants to comfort our broken heart and heal relationships that have been ruined by pride or unforgiveness..

If anything is keeping you from a joyful, productive life give all of the past to Jesus and move on.

Philippians 3:13-14

13 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

Filipenses 3:13-14

13 Hermanos, yo mismo no pretendo haberlo ya alcanzado; pero una cosa hago: olvidando ciertamente lo que queda atrás, y extendiéndome a lo que está delante, 14 prosigo a la meta, al premio del supremo llamamiento de Dios en Cristo Jesús.

What Do You Think About?

How Do You Think?

Sometimes we cannot see good in the situation we are in. Maybe it’s illness, accident, loss of a loved one. In our finite minds we can not understand why things are happening to us..
But, GOD will turn even the worst tragedies in our lives into something good if we will trust Him to bring it to pass. It may take time. Even months or years. Then we look back and we can see how He uses these tests in our lives and turns them into testimonies.

What we think about controls how we live and react to every situation in our lives.
God tells us in His Word what we should think about.
If we think about things that make us not trust God, we become worried and fearful.
One verse tells us how to overcome anxiety. Let us decide today to think on good things and ask God to help us to think about the things in this verse that will bring peace and joy into our lives.

When we praise God. He will show up. When He shows up, it will change our thinking. If we change our thoughts, we change our life.

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, 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. Philippians 4:8

En esto pensad -Por lo demás, hermanos, todo lo que es verdadero, todo lo honesto, todo lo justo, todo lo puro, todo lo amable, todo lo que es de.Filipenses 4:8

Do We Love Our Neighbor?

January 14, 2022

Do you find it hard to love some people? Maybe it is a fellow worker, a disagreeable neighbor, someone in your family, a person of another race or religion.

It is a natural reaction to not love someone who has hurt you, but that is the problem. It is a “natural” reaction. The Bible tells us in Ephesians as Christians to put off the old man which is corrupt and put on the new man, which is holy.

How then do we overcome the lack of love in our lives? Start to pray for that person if it is an individual. Ask God to change your heart if it is a group of people.

We cannot be an obedient Christian or have God’s blessings if we have hate in our heart.

What Are You Thinking?

January 4, 2022

The Bible says what we think, is what we are. We can be positive or negative.

We are so tempted to think negative, unproductive and even sinful thoughts. What we think is what we become.

Have you ever been unable to sleep because something is bothering you that your mind will not let you rest? I think we have all been there.

What can we do about these thoughts? The Bible has the answer.

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, 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. Philippians 4:8

What Do You Think About?

November 6, 2021

What we think about can make our day wonderful or terrible. Sometimes it is hard to control our thoughts.

That is when we need to seek God’s face and ask Him for His help and direction.

It is hard to be negative when we are concentrating on positive things. Fear and worry are not from God. How many times have you worried about something that never happened?

Think about the good things GOD has done for you and be thankful. Everyday this month write down something you are thankful for. No repeats. You will see that good thoughts make a good day.

Gratitude or Attitude?

May 13, 2021

How do you react when someone or something irritates you. Do you get angry and want to lash out? Do you have a bad attitude?

Inside you allow that irritation to fester. That is not good for your health and it is certainly not pleasing to God.

Instead, think of the good in that person or circumstance. Be grateful that person is in your life. Maybe you are irritated with your spouse or children, a coworker in the workplace. Each of them has many good qualities. Be thankful for the good things.

Make a list of all the things in that person or situation that you can be thankful for and then pray and ask the Lord to bless them. Your attitude can make a great difference.

Let us decide right now to have a good attitude and be grateful in every situation.

Ephesians 5:20 – Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;

Are you rejoicing?

Superstitious? The Bible tells us to have faith in God..not fear of myths and superstition.

If you are burdened by false superstition ask Jesus to take it away and trust fully in Him.

Be Thankful

November 12, 2020

November is the month of Thanksgiving. This holiday is overlooked between Halloween and Christmas, but as Christians we should celebrate this holiday with thanksgiving, not just on the Day, all year long.
