Every Situation 

January 22, 2017

If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.

In the happy moments, praise God.    In the difficult moments, seek God.   In the quiet moments, worship God.   In the painful moments, trust God.   In every moment, thank God.

1 Thessalonians 5:18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone

Carolyn’s Thanks

November 23, 2016

Tomorrow is a day to give thanks. It’s not the turkey, parade or shopping. It is a day to Praise The Lord for His goodness. I am thankful for my Savior, Jesus. God has blessed in the past year in spite of many trials. I am thankful for all my children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and in law family. God has given me the most loving caring family. I am thankful for my 2 sons that now reside in Heaven along and my dear husband, Tom, and many other family members. The pain of not having them here on earth can be excruciating but knowing we will be together again softens the pain. Thank you Lord for the Holy Spirit who gives comfort in the dark times. Friends and workers in SOS are more than I can count. The encouragement from them has been a blessing. If I listed all the Praise to The Lord it would take a volume of chapters so I will just wish to all Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow.

The Forgotten Holiday 

November 19, 2016

It is a few days before Thanksgiving. Unfortunately, this holiday has been almost forgotten in America today. It gets lost between Halloween and Christmas as commercialism has taken over this true and only American Holiday. The pilgrims stopped to give thanks to God for safety and provisions as they survived a perilous journey and a very hard time getting started in a new land. Many did loose their lives but the remaining people knew it was God who allowed them to survive.

Take time in these coming days before Thanksgiving to stop and be thankful to God for a specific thing each day. Let us not get into the trap of using this special holiday to just eat turkey and look for the shopping deals. Thank the Lord for His bountiful blessings.

2 Corinthians 9:11 Being enriched in every thing to all bountifulness, which causeth through us thanksgiving to God.

Mercy and Grace

October 17, 2016

So thankful for God’s mercy and grace. One of the Curtis grandsons fell asleep while driving. His truck rolled over and barely missed a telephone pole. The truck was totaled but he was not hurt except for a few minor cuts and bruises. We realize that life is short and we never know what the day will bring. The important thing no matter what our age is to be ready if the Lord calls us home. 

Ephesians 2:4-5 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)

Thanksgiving

 Psalm 100

Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands.

Serve the Lord with gladness:

come before his presence with singing.

Know ye that the Lord he is God:

it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves;

we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

Enter into his gates with thanksgiving,

and into his courts with praise:

be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting;

and his truth endureth to all generations. 

Friends

November 25, 2015

Thank the Lord for your friends. Some people think they have few friends, some have many friends.

A friend is someone who loves you in any circumstance. They laugh with you when you are happy and cry with you when you are sad, they accept you with all your faults and if you disagree they will come to an agreement even if it is to disagree agreeably. Sometimes a friend will disappoint you but they are still there for you when you need them.

 There is one true friend that is always with you and that is Jesus. For the Christian He is the closest friend you will ever have and he never disappoints you. He listens to every prayer and has the power to answer. He comforts when you are hurting or sick. He is with you in your joys and in your sorrow. 24/7 He is there.

We are thankful for our friends here on earth but most thankful for Jesus who is ever present in our lives.

Proverbs 17:17 A friend loveth at all times,

Hebrews 13:5  Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

Salvation

November 23, 2015

Everyone who is saved has a different testimony. Some were saved as a small child through the influence  of parents, grandparents or a godly Sunday  School teacher or bus worker. They really do not know what it is like to be in the world as sinners and have the most time to serve the Lord.

Others lived a life of sin and came to know Jesus after they came to the end of their rope and felt hopeless and had no place to turn. Maybe a Christian handed them a Bible tract and witnessed to them, or they went into a mission for food and a warm bed, and still others met an SOS Events worker at an event. These people are so thankful to be out of a life of sin and many want to tell others of their wonderful Savior.

There is a group of people who lived a good life, went to church, tithed, were moral, and did not commit any terrible sin. This group is the hardest to reach for Christ because they think they are good enough to to get to Heaven, but they realized they needed to be saved.

Every category of Christian falls into one of these groups, all are sinners in need of a Savior. If you are saved you can be thankful for your salvation. This is the greatest blessing in your life no matter if you are rich or poor, male or female, young or old. Today join with us in thanking God for your salvation.

Ephesians 12-14 That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ. In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.

Churches

November 22, 2015

Continuing the blessing we at SOS Events for which we are thankful. The churches that preach the gospel are a great blessing. There are many churches who patner with the ministry and use the 3 Things methods to reach the lost.

If you have a good church then join with us in thanking the Lord for your church and attend as often as you can. Pray for your Pastor today as he brings the message. Also, for the many people who cannot get to church we are thankful for the preachers who get the message out through TV, radio and Internet.

Hebrews 10:25  Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.
