Little Things

July 18, 2019

This LITTLE twig caused great problems in the SOS Events home office. The air conditioner stopped working in Alice’s office. The compressor came on but the fan did not work. In 90 degree heat an air conditioner is a must. Before purchasing a new one, Tony, Diana’s husband, came to take a look. When he checked the fan he found this LITTLE stick blocking the fan. Problem solved.

Many times in our Christian lives we allow LITTLE things to spoil our joy and relationship with others. The Bible tells us that LITTLE things, like the tongue, cause great problems. Let us determine to not allow LITTLE things to ruin out testimony or our relationship with God and others.

James 3:5 Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth!

George Washington Quote

Tomorrow is the 4th of July… a holiday to celebrate America’s freedom. Truth about the founding of our country is no longer taught in public schools. Most of the younger generation have no idea that our founding Father’s trusted and relied upon God for wisdom to govern our nation. Unrest, immorality and crime have become the normal in the USA. It is every Christians responsibility to teach our children and grandchildren about the foundation of America. The Bible was the source of inspiration for those leaders, pray it is the inspiration of our leaders today.

Psalms 33:12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.

Work and Rest

June 26, 2019

SOS Events summer intern teens working hard pulling weeds on the ministry’s property (top). Then taking a well deserved rest (with a little fun added). Electricity was out yesterday and it was very hot in Florida but these girls worked until the job was finished. They are learning many things working for SOS Events this summer. They are a blessing.

God even rested after He created the world. He gave us an example. Work and rest. Both important for a happy productive life.

Hebrews 4:4 For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all his works.

No Electricity

June 25, 2019

No power, no internet, no coffee, no lights, no water (pump runs water from a well). Thankfully morning comes and we have light from the sun. We are so dependent on electricity for our lifestyle that without it we seem powerless to do anything.

As Christians we have a source of power that never goes out. Jesus is the light and the power in our lives to do everything we need to do. We can do all things through Jesus. He has promised us in His Word. Do not loose your power by neglecting to read the Bible and pray everyday. We can think the power has gone out but He is waiting for us to reconnect.

Wait on the Lord!

Have you ever been impatient? Waiting for something to happen but it seems it never will. Then, in God’s perfect timing, the answer comes, even better than you could imagine. We have all been there. Let us determine in our hearts to wait on Him for guidance.

Faith

May 28, 2019

Sometimes our faith fails. Maybe through a trial in our lives, or we think God does not hear our prayers. Jesus told His disciples several times, “O ye of little faith”.

The wonderful thing that He also said in the verse above is that all we need is faith as small as a mustard seed.

How can we increase our faith? “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”

On SOS home page is a great Bible Study on Faith. It is lesson 10. That is a good lesson to help increase our faith.

Discouraged?

May 22, 2019

Billy Graham said, “Discouragement is the opposite of faith.” It is Satan’s device to thwart the work of God in our lives. Discouragement blinds our eyes to the mercy of God and makes us perceive only the unfavorable circumstances. You will never met a person who spent time in daily prayer, in the study of the Word of God, and who was strong in the faith who was ever discouraged for very long.
