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.

Thankful for The Privilege

November 20, 2018

It is a privilege to Serve Our Savior with SOS Events Ministry. Thankful for every missionary, trainer and volunteer who has been a witness for the Lord Jesus in the last 17 years. Thank the Lord for all the souls who have come for salvation and assurance in those years. Thank you all for your service for Him.

Thankful for Friends

November 19, 2018

Thank the Lord for your friends. Some people 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.

Thankful for Our Churches

November 18, 2018

This week is a time of thanksgiving for all our blessings. One of the things we should be most thankful for is our church. Church is not just a building, it is a place to worship, fellowship, hear God’s Word, and sing praises to Jesus.

Psalms 122:1 I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the Lord.

Thank You Veterans

November 11, 2018

Today is Veterans Day in the USA. A day to remember the brave men and women who fought so that we can live in freedom. Also, a special thanks to the people who are in the military today. We are free to choose our leaders, we are free to rear our children as we please, we are free to follow the path to any career we desire, and much more, because of the sacrifice of these men and women in the military. Most of all we are free to worship our Lord and Savior, Jesus, who gives us true spiritual freedom.

Philippians 1:3 I thank my God upon every remembrance of you,

Thankful People

November 7, 2018

Thanksgiving will soon be here. It is sad to think that this special holiday has been overshadowed by Halloween and Christmas. Except for the turkey and food the true meaning is lost. As Christians we should be thankful not one time a year but in everything. True happiness comes from our thanksgiving to God for all His bountiful blessings.

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

Eternal Security

April 30, 2018

What a wonderful Savior Jesus is. He warns us against things that Satan will use to harm us or cause us to question God. Satan wants to steal our purpose, vision, joy, and family through doubt and discouragement. One thing Satan cannot steal from a Christian is salvation. When you trust Christ as your Savior, believe He died on the cross for your sins and repent, you are accepting the gift of Salvation which is your eternal security.

Romans 8:38-39 (KJV)

For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Salvation

April 28, 2018

Salvation is freely offered. It has been paid for through the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the cross. All you have to do is admit you are a sinner, believe that Jesus died for you and that He is giving you this opportunity to trust in Him, then call on Him to come into your life.

John 3:16 says, For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

Romans 3:23 tells us, For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

Romans 5:8, But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

Romans 6:23, For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Romans 10:9, That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

That is a promise from God.

Winter is Here

January 3, 2018

Winter came in with extremely cold weather all over the USA. Some of us love the cold and others hate it, but the Bible says give thanks in all things. If you love the cold go out and enjoy it. For those who think they will freeze to death, curl up with a blanket and a good book. Be thankful for the change in seasons, it gives us verity in our lives. Weather changes but Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever.

Ephesians 5:20 Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;
