Flag Day

June 14, 2020

Many Americans do not know that today, June 14, is Flag Day. This day is set aside to commemorate the original flag of the USA. The original had 13 stripes and 13 stars.

The Revolutionary War was fought by the patriots in 13 colonies. Each colony had its own flag. George Washington and the founding fathers decided that there should be one flag to show unity of the new Country.

Today, more than ever we need to once again come together in unity and peace.

God has richly blessed the USA with years of peace and prosperity. We citizens and especially Christians should unite together in love. We need to pray for our country, not only on Flag Day but everyday that God will restore peace, love and respect for one another.

Romans 12:10 Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another;

Our Country In Chaos

June 4, 2020

As a Christian it is hard to watch the news, especially the liberal media.

The Bible tells us to love one another. Do you want to others as you would have them do unto you. What we are seeing in the news in our towns and cities is the complete opposite of what our country should be.

We need intervention from God. The only way that he’s going to heal our land is if we Christians humble ourselves and seek Him.

Trusting Jesus In The Storm

April 4, 2020

And the same day, when the even was come, he saith unto them, Let us pass over unto the other side.
And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was in the ship. And there were also with him other little ships.
And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full.
And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish?
And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.
And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?
And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?
Mark 4:35-41

The Coronavirus feels like a great storm to many. Jesus is saying to us, “Peace be still.” Turn to Him to calm your fearful heart.

Stressed? Look to God’s Word!

March 20, 2020

This past week I was at the doctors office waiting to take a stress test. It happened to be on a day when I was stressed. My phone kept ringing because people wanted to know if SOS Events annual meeting was still going on. I was sitting in the doctors office for almost 1 hour. The office was empty and still they had not called me.

I was getting more stress by the minute. Finally, I ask the nurse who opened the door when they were going to call me, and he said they had no paperwork on me. Another 10 minute wait. By now my stress level was really high, my blood pressure was higher than it has ever been.

I thought for sure I would fail the stress test. I had to sit in the tall chair for 10 minutes without moving or talking. During that time I kept quoting Bible verses that I had learned over the years. Immediately, I felt total peace and calm.

Yesterday I got a call from the doctors office and I had passed the stress test. I know that it was God’s word that calmed my heart, brought my blood pressure down and allowed me to pass this test.

All the praise goes to the Lord. And a reminder to hide God’s word in our heart for a time such as this.

Psalms 119:114 Thou art my hiding place and my shield:
I hope in thy word.

Our Unchanging Savior

March 16, 2020

School closed, store shelves empty of certain products, visiting hospitals and assisted living facilities prohibited and sporting events cancelled.

When the world as we know it seems to have changed overnight because of the coronavirus, we have one thing that never changes That is The Lord Jesus. God Can Not Change. His love and care for us is constant. His promises are true. There are hundreds of verses in the Bible, God’s Word, that tells us not to fear, trust in Him, be anxious for nothing, He loves us and cares for us.

Today, if you have accepted Jesus as your Savior, take all your cares and concerns to Him.

If you do not know Him personally, now is the time to put your faith in Him and ask Him to forgive your sins, believe Jesus died on the cross, was buried and 3 days later He arose. Then call on Him and invite Him to be your Savior.

Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
1 Peter 5:7

Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Hebrews 13:8

Trust in the Lord at All Times

January 21, 2020

Sometimes we have situations in our lives that we run to God in prayer. It may be an accident, illness or even death of a loved one or friend. God answers prayer. He heals physically and we Praise Him. We don’t always understand when it seems like He didn’t hear us. Maybe it is bad news, cancer or worse, but He is there. He brings comfort and peace in the most difficult situations. We must trust Him not only in the good times but especially in the time of trial and heartbreak.

Isaiah 26:3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.

 

Prince of Peace

The name of Jesus so needed in our time of unrest in our Country and around the world is Prince of Peace. He came as a baby, died on a cross for you, arose and is coming again. True peace can only happen with Jesus.
