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

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)

The Cross

For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

Praise for 24 Decisions

July 30, 2018

Thank you to part of the Florida SOS Team for taking time out on a Saturday to share the plan of salvation to families attending the YMCA Camp Cristina Back Pack Event July 28th in Riverview. We praise the Lord for 24 more souls that are now 100% sure they will go to heaven. Thank you to the coordinators of this event for the invitation to come.

As you see in the picture below, the display board says, “See Three Things God Cannot Do“.  For those of you who do not know the ministry of  Event Evangelism / SOS Events Ministry I would like to share what those 3 things are.

 1) God Cannot Lie  Titus 1:2   (God loves you)

 2) God Cannot Change  Malachi 3:6  (If God loves you and He cannot lie, how long will    He love you?)

3) God Cannot Let Anyone Into Heaven Unless They Are Born Again  John 3:3-5  (Are you 50%, 75% or 100% sure you would go to Heaven if you died today?)

YOU can be 100% sure. According to Scripture it is as simple as the ABC’s…

A – Admit that YOU have sinned. Romans 3:23, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.”

B – Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 10:9, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth… and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him (Jesus) from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”

C – Call upon the Lord. Romans 10:13, “For whosoever (you) shall call upon the name of the Lord, shall be saved.”

If you are not 100% sure and would like to be, here is a simple prayer to call on the Lord to repent of your sins and accept Jesus as your Savior. “Lord Jesus, I admit I am a sinner, I believe you died on the cross for forgiveness of my sins, I ask that you forgive my sins, come into my heart and make my life new. I receive you as my Savior. Thank you. Jesus. Amen.”

If you prayed this prayed, please contact the ministry for a free Bible study to help you start your new walk in the Lord.  http://www.sosevents.org
