A Special Valentine

February 14, 2019

Today is Valentines Day. Special because the one we love gets an opportunity to tell us how much he or she loves us. Weddings take place on this day, couples have plans for a romantic dinner, jewelry, cards, flowers and candy given as a token of love. A wonderful day for you, if you have that special someone in your life, but some of you do not have someone to give a gift or say “I love you.” You may be sad today.

This is a special Valentine for you.

1 John 4:16 And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.

God is Love

February 1, 2019

February is the month we think about Love. Some of us have a wonderful love story and others have only heartache and disappointment in love, but for all of us there is Someone who loves us more than we can ever imagine. God loves us so much He sent His Only Son, Jesus, to die on the cross so we can have eternal life. There is no greater love.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Gifts Symbol of Christmas

December 12, 2018

The next 12 days for a lot of people will be the busiest time of year preparing for that perfect Christmas gift. Shopping in crowded stores, looking at catalogs, shopping on line.

The best gift you can give anyone is telling them about Jesus. For your unsaved friend, coworker or relative their best gift would be receiving Jesus as their Savior.

For your Christian loved ones a time of fellowship, a phone call or a message. Your time is more precious than any gift you could possibly buy.

Enjoy the Christmas season but don’t forget the best gift ever given…..Jesus.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that HE gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Mistletoe Christmas Symbols

December 6, 2018

Mistletoe symbolizes the love we are able to offer to others only because of Christ who “first loves us.” This year, tell your kids about the true meaning of mistletoe. Be sure to let them know that the corresponding kiss is a symbol of peace, romance and the love of a Heavenly Father who we need to rely on in order to find abundant life.

1 John 4:19 We love him, because he first loved us.

God’s Perfect Plan

November 21, 2018

The following testimony is a true Thanksgiving story of a new great grandchild of Carolyn Curtis, written by her granddaughter in law, Nicole. Anyone who has had a problem waiting on God will benefit from this testimony of God’s perfect plan.

“I just want to start out by saying thank you to every single one of you that have shared this roller coaster journey of ours! It is overwhelming how blessed we are and how lucky we are to have such great and supportive family and friends. I know I couldn’t have done this without you all. Some of you know that Danny and I have been trying to have children of our own for a while, and you know everything that we have been through with that. And when you hear people say ,”Oh it will happen” and “God has a plan” it’s not something you want to hear when you have a plan and things aren’t going your way! I wanted kids, a whole bunch of them, and I wanted them right then. When things were not going as I had planned it was very discouraging. I was sad and mad and thought,” Why is this happening to us”! I just wanted a baby. I saw all these people that shouldn’t be reproducing and they have like seven kids. What is going on??! What did I do to be punished like this? I am usually a very happy person and I like to have fun and I hate being miserable! Danny was great through the whole thing, very supportive and always there. I really felt like he didn’t know exactly what I was going through. I wanted to be a Mom. I felt like part of my purpose was to have kids, to be a stay at home Mom with them. I mean for career day at school I went as a stay at home Mom with twins! Of course I was negative and bitter in my head. Mostly I didn’t want anyone to see how I was struggling with this. I am a happy positive person! But I was so tired of being miserable, sad, and mad. I couldn’t do it anymore. Why am I trying to do this by myself?! So one night I started reading my Bible and praying for hours. It was like a huge weight had lifted off of me. Why in the world did I not do this sooner? I was so focused on my plan not working like I wanted that I didn’t even stop and think ,wait a minute what is God’s plan for me? I am not even kidding from that night on I haven’t felt angry or bitter, of course there were more times where I thought, what is going and what is your plan? I tried to be positive and just kept reminding myself God has a plan. Years had passed and it seemed like it was bad news after bad news. Things not working out and I thought ok God what now because I am not sure how much more of this I can take! Well let me tell you He sure started making his plan known! We decided that we were going to adopt. We started that process and were about to head into the next stage when we got a very important phone call!!! Once again the plans changed. But the phone call was asking us if we wanted to adopt a little boy named Moses. That was God’s plan all along and we had to just wait on the perfect child for us!! We brought Moses home at the end of September 2017 and started the processes of adopting. (And how that all worked out is another long story by itself!) So God’s plan to put Moses in our life was worth everything that we went through and definitely worth the wait!! He is an answer to our prayers and we are so blessed!!! Thank God for keeping me strong through it all and I know this would not have been possible without Him. Now here on November 20th We finally get to say

Welcome Moses Slater to your forever family!”

Jeremiah 33:3 Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.

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……

The Powerful Word

August 4, 2018
The Lord’s Word will not return void. The Word of God is alive and powerful.
Erwin W. Lutzer wrote a great illustration from the book Yesterday, Today, and Forever, The Word of God in the Life of His People for the verse, Jeremiah 23:29.
“An angry young man stood at the back of a train and threw the new Bible his mother gave him as far as he could. Yet months later he returned, repentant that he had mistreated God’s Book. He learned that the damaged Bible had fallen into the hands of a child who read it and was converted. Now both met as brothers in Christ; the one as a restored believer, the other as a newly converted twelve-year-old. What other book can soften the heart of an angry man and convert a child? Only the Bible.

Is not my word like as a fire? saith the Lord; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?

Jeremiah 23:29  (KJV)
