Discouraged?

April 17, 2021

Do you ever get discouraged? Maybe you feel betrayed by a friend, or you’ve lost a loved one. You have been ill for awhile. You have fear because of coronavirus and are afraid to go out. There are many reasons to feel discouraged.

What are you going to do about it? The Bible tells us to trust in the Lord but you are finding it hard to do.

When all seems impossible, encourage yourself. Don’t want to read or Praise the Lord? Do it.

The best thing is to find a Bible that you can listen to as you are reading. Sing. A good one is “Count Your Blessings”. Name them one by one. Do it.

It is hard to be discouraged when you are thankful for what God has done. Pray and ask for the discouragement to be lifted. And He will help you.

Jesus Praying in the Garden.

March 31, 2021

Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place called Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here, while I go and pray yonder.

And he took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very heavy.

Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me.

And he went a little farther, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.

And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour?

Matthew 26: 36-41

Strawberry Festival Has 3 More Days

March 12, 2021

Strawberry Festival in Plant City, Florida has 3 more days. Continue to pray for the SOS Events volunteers and the people that come to the festival.

They come to have fun and entertainment but God has another plan for them. Pray that He will prepare their hearts to receive the Gospel and then that He will draw them in.

God answers prayer. He is wants people to be saved.

2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

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.

Your Pastor Needs Prayer, Today

February 7, 2021

Today is Sunday and your Pastor needs prayer. The Enemy does not want him filled with the Spirit and preaching God’s Word. He will face battles today as he gets ready to feed us. The best way to honor your Pastor is to pray for him and encourage him with kind words. Pray for power in his message, for souls to be saved and backslidden Christians to get right with God.

Also, a tip from a dear Pastor’s wife, please do not catch him before church with problems, troubles or criticism. He needs to be free from conflicting thoughts so the Holy Spirit can work through him.

Jeremiah 3:15 And I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.

Pray For Your Pastor

January 10, 2021

The coronavirus has caused many problems for Pastors. Each Pastor has many decisions to make that involve not only his family but the people in his congregation.

As the churches begin to open again, it is the Pastors responsibility to keep people safe, give everyone encouragement and most importantly preach the gospel.

Pray for your Pastor today. Tell him or send him a note to be an encouragement to him.

1 Timothy 5:17 – Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine.

Romans 15:30 – Now I beseech you, brethren, for the Lord Jesus Christ’s sake, and for the love of the Spirit, that ye strive together with me in [your] prayers to God for me;

(This is reprinted from when coronavirus began, but even more important today)

Events

January 9, 2021

Today, SOS Events has 2 places that will have teams of volunteers to witness to people in Florida.

This photo was taken last month at a food distribution at a local church in Plant City. SOS Events volunteers will be at this event again today.

At the same time more volunteers will be in Dade City at an all day event. Please pray for souls to be saved. Pray for SOS Events workers that they have wisdom and power of the Holy Spirit.

Events are few because of COVID-19 but God still gives opportunities to tell others about Jesus.

Ephesians 6:19 And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,

A Sad Day

January 7, 2021

Yesterday was a sad day for Americans. When the US Capital building is invaded by protesters, every citizen in our country should be sad.

There is one thing every Christian should do today. Pray and ask God for the healing of America.

Pray for President Trump and President-elect Biden. Both of these men need our prayers. They need wisdom and guidance. Pray that they seek answers from God.

Pray that there be peace in America.
