It Is Well

September 20, 2018

Do you have peace in time of heartache and trouble? Is it well with your soul? May this story of a great hymn bring you comfort and peace.

Philippians 4:7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ

Horatio Spafford had a nice life in the Chicago suburbs with his wife and five children and always welcomed guests in their home. Then in 1870, his 4-year-old died of scarlet fever, and in 1871 the Great Chicago Fire destroyed most of his investments (which were in Chicago real estate).

In 1873, the family wanted to sail to Europe for much-needed time away from their tragedy and to help in a revival, but on the day of departure, Horatio had a last-minute business emergency. He sent the family on ahead and planned to follow on another ship in a few days. But their ship was struck by another ship and sank in 12 minutes—the remainder of his four children died and only his wife was saved and brought to England. He immediately set sail to be with his wife, and as his ship passed the place where his daughters drowned, he penned It Is Well, and music was composed to accompany it in 1876.

It Is Well With My Soul

When peace like a river, attendeth my way,

When sorrows like sea billows roll

Whatever my lot, thou hast taught me to say

It is well, it is well, with my soul

It is well

With my soul

It is well, it is well with my soul

Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,

Let this blest assurance control,

That Christ has regarded my helpless estate,

And hath shed His own blood for my soul

It is well (it is well)

With my soul (with my soul)

It is well, it is well with my soul

My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought

My sin, not in part but the whole,

Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,

Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, o my soul

It is well (it is well)

With my soul (with my soul)

It is well, it is well with my soul

It is well (it is well)

With my soul (with my soul)

It is well, it is well with my soul

How To Work For The Lord!

Rainbows

September 9, 2018

This rainbow was behind the SOS Events property last evening. What a great visual reminder of God’s promises and love to us.

Ezekiel 1:28 As Ezekiel 1:28 As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness round about. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord……

Don’t Quit!

September 5, 2018

Sometimes we do not feel like doing something that we know God wants us to do. On Wednesday especially the SOS Events team that goes to the Plant City Flea Market 52 weeks a year must get tired and feel like quitting. Getting there before sunrise to set up, then the extreme heat of Florida summers could make anyone want to quit. BUT, they do not. And God blesses with souls who get saved. Last week 7 people trusted Jesus as Savior. Thank you faithful team members. Your rewards will be in Heaven when you are told, “Well done, faithful servants.”

1 Corinthians 15:58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.

Happy Labor Day

September 3, 2018

A special Happy Labor Day to all the Leaders, Volunteers and Staff of SOS Events Ministry who work tirelessly at events and behind the scenes to win souls to Jesus. Thank you to each and everyone of you.

1 Corinthians 3:9 For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building.

“CHOOSE THE BREAD OF LIFE OR YOU ARE TOAST”

John 6:35 And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.

Time to Worship

August 26, 2018

Everyday we should worship the Lord when we first wake up, with Bible reading and prayer, but Sunday is a special day when we can gather with likeminded Christians to worship God together. If you are able to go to church today, you will be blessed. If you are not able to go then worship Him in your heart. God desires the worship and praise of His children.

Busy in The Lord’s Work

August 23, 2018

Just a word of encouragement today for all SOS Events Workers and others who are on the front lines working for the Lord. Your Labour is not in vain. Keep on keeping on.
