God’s Smiles

August 18, 2017

1 Samuel 16:7 But the Lord said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart.

Hang in There

August 11, 2017

Have you ever felt like you are hanging on with no help in sight? Whatever the trial or situation that makes you feel that way, there is good news for you as a Christian. We have a someone who is right there with us. His name is Jesus. He is the One who will save us. Our helper, deliverer and friend. Call out to Him in prayer.

Psalms 18:2 The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.

Home Sweet Home

August 9, 2017

Have you ever been away from home for awhile. Vacation, business trip or travel. Then it is time to go “home”. What great anticipation. You may live in a mansion or a small cottage, but whatever the property it is still home. As Christians we should have the same love and anticipation for our heavenly home, Heaven. Waiting for us there is Jesus, our loved ones who have gone on before us, and wonders we cannot even imagine. Jesus said:

John 14:2-3 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

Young Evangelist

August 1, 2017

SOS Events has teams of workers in several states. In New Jersey the team is working various events throughout the year. Recently in the report came these two testimonies written on the decision cards.

Eric, age 12, wrote: I am 100 % sure that I will go to heaven. Jesus died for my sins. (Eric was quick to become an evangelist and brought his mom Andrea to us). See Andrea’s testimony below.

Andrea, age 28, wrote: 100% sure I’d go to heaven. I trust God. God died on the cross for me.
1 Timothy 4:12 Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.

Priorities 

July 28, 2017

August has not even arrived and summer is almost over for some people. School starts soon for the southern states. Some as early as next week. Life seems to move to fast with work, home and responsibilities. In your busy life make sure you take time, first for God, then for family and if priorities are straight every thing else will fall into place.

Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Love One Another

July 15, 2017

Monday Morning

July 10, 2017

A new beginning of the work week for many people. Some love the thought of going to work, as it is pleasurable to them. Others are unhappy because they hate their job but have to work. Some are not working and would love to be able to go to work. Maybe illness, loss of job or circumstances keep them from working. Then there are vacations this time of year and this week is full of plans for family, fun and adventure. Whatever your day brings forth one thing to remember, this is the day that the Lord made, we are to be glad and rejoice in it.

Philippians 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice.

Favorite Bible Verse 

July 9, 2017

Do you have a favorite Bible verse or verses that keeps you focused on God no matter what the circumstances. If you do not then it would be a good thing to ask God to give you one. This is Carolyn Curtis, cofounder of SOS Events Ministry, favorite.

A Good Start

July 8, 2017

“The prayer offered to God in the morning during your quiet time is the key that unlocks the door of the day. Any athlete knows that it is the start that ensures a good finish.” – Adrian Rogers

Proverbs 8:17 I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me.

Love One Another

June 27, 2017

This poem was found on the internet about the people we should love to show God’s love to us:

Do Everything In Love

In everything you do,

Do it in love

For the Father is watching

In Heaven above.
At work or at play

Offer words of kindness to others

To the cashier, the barber

The bus driver and new mothers.
Jesus is the example

That we all should follow

Love is the ultimate gift

To give those in good times and sorrow.

1 John 4:7 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.
