A Cure For Shot Nerves

June 3, 2023

Thinking of something to encourage those who read this blog, I chose a book on hymns, “Then Sings My Soul” by Robert J. Morgan.
He wrote a forward “The Cure For Shot Nerves”. Thinking that is a catchy title, I read what he wrote about how the old hymns can calm the spirit and help bring peace to the soul.

It is rare in some churches to even hear the old hymns anymore and that is sad.
“In the Garden” He walks with me/ and He talks with me/ and tells me I am His own.
“Jesus Loves Me”, “Amazing Grace”, “I Need Thee Every Hour” and many more that encourage the heart.

Today, if you are stressed, feeling overwhelmed, or just plan discouraged, think of your favorite hymn and sing it, hum it or just let it flood your mind with how good God is, and soon you will find the comfort you need.

Have a Blessed Friday and Wonderful Weekend!

Jesus, Our Savior and Healer

May 31, 2023

Jesus is able and willing to save us from all our sins, just as He did with the man who suffered from palsy.

Jesus not only forgave him of his sin, Jesus healed the man and he walked out completely whole. What a wonderful Savior.

Memorial Day weekend we honor our brave military veterans and active men and women who serve our Country to keep us free.

But today, the Lord’s day, let us remember Jesus death, burial and resurrection. We have freedom of eternal life because of Him. We have victory over death which is ultimate freedom.


Brighten Someone’s Life Today!

May 26, 2023

There is a little song “Brighten the Corner Where You Are”.

“Do not wait until some deed of greatness you may do,
Do not wait to shed your light afar,
To the many duties ever near you now be true,
Brighten the corner where you are.

Brighten the corner where you are!
Brighten the corner where you are!
Someone far from harbor you may guide across the bar;
Brighten the corner where you are!”

Today why don’t you encourage someone with a phone call, text message, note or a simple smile may make someone’s day brighter. Maybe a single Mom, a lonely person, a friend who struggling with a problem or a stranger who needs a friendly greeting. You will be the one who gets a blessing along with the person you are encouraging.

Jesus prayed often, and He gave us what we call the Lord’s prayer.

If you have difficulty finding something to pray about pray the prayer that God gave us. In that prayer is what we need every day.

We need food, we need forgiveness of our daily sins, we need to forgive others. Everything we need is in this prayer.

Most important of all we need to to honor our Heavenly Father in everything we do.

Once we start praying we will know what additional things we need to pray about.

Friday! A Great Day To Rejoice In The Lord!

When Things Are Not Right!

May 18, 2023

What do you do when things don’t go right in your life?

Today if you look at our website, something is wrong. For some reason it is not looking like it is supposed to look. The heading is gone and it is a mess.

The problem is, we don’t know how to fix it. However, there are people who do have the knowledge to make it right. We will call them and the problem should be fixed soon.

In life we face problems, too. We don’t know how to fix them but we have a Heavenly Father who is waiting for us to call on Him. God is the only one who can fix a broken heart, take away sin, and give us peace in the time of trouble. Today, call on Him with any problem you have.

God’s Sweetest Creation!

May 17, 2023

When we see a baby, how can we doubt God’s creation? Perfect in every way.

Each one of us is unique and special. God knew us from the womb the Bible tells us. We are created in His image.

He has a plan and purpose for each of us, but to be able to fulfill His plan we must first be born again by inviting Jesus to be our Savior.

SOS Events Blessings

May 16, 2023

One of the SOS Events great blessings is the volunteers.

In Plant City, Fl every week is the Flea Market. For many years Alice Thomas, got up early on Wednesdays, got to the event to set up and worked for several hours before taking everything down to come to the office. She did have a faithful few who helped, William and Richard but prayed for more volunteers who would be willing to help.

God has answered. SOS Events now have several teams who have volunteered to go once a month and set up and take down. Almost every week is filled. Some of the volunteers speak Spanish which was desperately needed.

God has blessed with people receiving the message and asked Jesus to change their lives every week. Praise the Lord for answering prayer.

Thank you to all the volunteers who are helping at the weekly Flea Market as well as other events in the area. May God bless each one.

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. 1 Corinthians 15:58
