September 14, 2021

“Our heavenly Father understands our disappointment, suffering, pain, fear, and doubt. He is always there to encourage our hearts and help us understand that He’s sufficient for all of our needs. When I accepted this as an absolute truth in my life, I found that my worrying stopped.” Dr. Charles Stanley

Be Still

August 26, 2021

Be still. In this busy time it is difficult to stop and listen to God. We read God’s Word, we pray, but do we take time to listen?

Probably not. Try it for just 5 minutes. Clear your mind and surroundings of all distractions.

It is amazing. Bible verses flood your mind. Maybe just silence. Total peace and relaxation.

Your relationship with God will be strengthened. Try being still today.

Storms

The SOS Events office and homes of many volunteers are in the path of the storm named Elsa.

Storms can be dangerous. Fallen trees, floods, wind, rain and tornadoes are results of this storm.

What do we do during a storm? Get prepared. Have food and water on hand and listen to instructions. Then trust God to bring us through unharmed.

Storms in your life, you need preparation to survive.

In times of your storm, be prepared. Get ready by reading God’s Word everyday, praying for guidance and resting in God’s promises. He will give you peace and bring you through the storm.

Storms

Storms can be frightening. Wind, rain, lightning come down trees and cause a lot of damage. And then after the storm is over the sun comes out and everything looks peaceful.

We have storms in our lives that we think will take us down. But if we know Jesus as our Savior, He will go with us through the storm and calm our hearts and bring us peace.

Find Peace In This World

No Hope to Peace

February 27, 2021

Ephesians 2: 12b & 13 …..having no hope, and without God in the world: But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.

The Bible tells us that before we accepted Jesus as our Savior we were without hope, lost and on our way to spending eternity without God and Heaven.

But, after salvation, we are close to God through the blood of Jesus.

Prayer

February 24, 2021

Sometimes we feel overwhelmed with the problems. Maybe it is the illness of a loved one, trying to get everything done in a day, discontent with our job or the many other things that cause us to be upset.

God tells us in His Word, do not be upset about anything, but pray, ask Him to remedy the situation, thank Him and He will give us peace.

This is what trusting is all about. Cast all our cares on Jesus and He will help us get through any situation.

It Is Well With My Soul

February 18, 2021

This great hymn was written in a time of tragedy. The Spafford family had lost their small son in the same year 1871 as the Chicago fire. He also suffered financial problems due to the fire.

Hoping a voyage would ease the pain of loosing the son, Horatio sent his family on an ocean liner to Europe, planning to join them later.

Their 4 daughters died in the shipwreck (pictured above). His wife survived the wreck.

On his way to meet his grieving wife, passing the spot where his daughters died, Horatio G. Spafford wrote these words.

When peace like a river attendeth my way, When sorrows like sea billows roll, Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say, It is well, it is well with my soul. Chorus: It is well with my soul, It is well, it is well with my soul

And the peace of God which surpasses all understanding, shall keep your hearts, your minds through Christ Jesus. – Philippians 4:7.
