Trusting Jesus In The Storm

April 4, 2020

And the same day, when the even was come, he saith unto them, Let us pass over unto the other side.
And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was in the ship. And there were also with him other little ships.
And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full.
And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish?
And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.
And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?
And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?
Mark 4:35-41

The Coronavirus feels like a great storm to many. Jesus is saying to us, “Peace be still.” Turn to Him to calm your fearful heart.

Peace In Troubled Times

April 3, 2020

Today’s Bible verse speaks for itself. God has given us peace if we trust in Him through our Lord, Jesus.

He does not want us to have fear but lean on Him.

Walt Whitman Quote

“Keep your face always toward the sunshine – and shadows will fall behind you.
Walt Whitman

There is a beautiful song…Turn your eyes upon Jesus, look full into His wonderful face and the things of earth will grow strangely dim in the light of His glory and grace.

In these troubled times, we need to look to Jesus.

Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12:2

Hello April

April 1, 2020

Many of us have to stay in during the month of April. This is a time that we can use to make us blossom! We can draw closer to God by reading the Bible more. We can encourage others with a phone call or note. We can have time to work on a hobby. Some people are using this time for doing projects around the house.

Take this time to look up to better things to come.

“Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.”
Psalms 16:11, KJV

Bible Verse for Today

March 23, 2020

In this trying time, God’s Word will bring comfort, freedom from fear and encouragement. Let us all pray for an ending to this pandemic, not only for the USA but for all the countries in the world that are going through these rough times as we are.

Stressed? Look to God’s Word!

March 20, 2020

This past week I was at the doctors office waiting to take a stress test. It happened to be on a day when I was stressed. My phone kept ringing because people wanted to know if SOS Events annual meeting was still going on. I was sitting in the doctors office for almost 1 hour. The office was empty and still they had not called me.

I was getting more stress by the minute. Finally, I ask the nurse who opened the door when they were going to call me, and he said they had no paperwork on me. Another 10 minute wait. By now my stress level was really high, my blood pressure was higher than it has ever been.

I thought for sure I would fail the stress test. I had to sit in the tall chair for 10 minutes without moving or talking. During that time I kept quoting Bible verses that I had learned over the years. Immediately, I felt total peace and calm.

Yesterday I got a call from the doctors office and I had passed the stress test. I know that it was God’s word that calmed my heart, brought my blood pressure down and allowed me to pass this test.

All the praise goes to the Lord. And a reminder to hide God’s word in our heart for a time such as this.

Psalms 119:114 Thou art my hiding place and my shield:
I hope in thy word.

The Answer

March 19, 2020

Christians, the answer to getting the coronavirus under control is us. God promises that if we humble ourselves, confess our sins and seek Him, He will heal our land. Not only does the USA need revival and healing but this is a worldwide pandemic.

Now, more than ever, pray without ceasing. Many are frightened or discouraged. Call, text or write them and tell our friends and loved ones we are praying for them.
