Carolyn’s Office

October 16, 2017

Sometimes problems turn out yo be a great blessing. Carolyn Curtis’s office was filled with mold and mildew from a roof leak after the severe rains. The roof leaked and damage went unnoticed for several weeks because the water was coming into the interior walls and did not show other damage. The roof is now fixed, the mold and mildew gone, everything is like new even the beautiful office furniture (bought on Craig’s list). A nice place to welcome visitors and continue the work that Carolyn does for SOS Events Ministry. God is so good. Praise the Lord for turning this problem into a blessing.

Psalms 84:11 For the Lord God is a sun and shield: the Lord will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.

Jesus is Waiting

October 6, 2017

Jesus only goes where He is invited and, He only stays where He is welcome. Have you invited Him to come in? He is waiting for your invitation.

Revelation 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

It Takes Time

October 2, 2017

Sometimes we get discouraged, thinking that what we do for the Lord has not been successful. Handing out tracts, teaching a class, witnessing and we think nothing happens. Sometimes it takes a long time before we see the results of our labors. Last week we got a call from a man in Kentucky. He had been trained a year ago as a trainer with SOS Events. He had a display board, tracts and all the material necessary to get into an event, but we did not hear from him. But, after a year, he decided to get busy and start doing events. This first event is October 8 and he hopes to have several more during this autumn season. This example is repeated many times in SOS Events ministry. Sometimes it’s even years before people decide to use what they have been taught.

Galatians 6:9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

Rainbows

September 21, 2017

This photo was taken yesterday just before Prayer Meeting in Appomattox, VA. What a beautiful reminder of God’s love and protection for us. His promises are true. He promised never to destroy the earth again with a flood, and though we see storms in local areas, He also promised that He would be with us through the storm and reminds us with a beautiful rainbow.

Genesis 9:16 And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth.

Fear

September 16, 2017

Maybe you fear what people think of you… Not having enough money… Public speaking, flying, being far from home, or spiders… Failure or rejection… Losing a loved one… Disease or pain… Death…. Fear is mentioned in the KJV version of the Bible over 500 times. Over 100 of those verses say, Fear Not. Trusting in the Lord is the only way to overcome fear. 

2 Timothy 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

Jesus Our Shelter

September 8, 2017

For us who are in the path of the storm, a special reminder to look to Jesus for wisdom, comfort and protection. To those of you who are not affected by the storms please pray for those who are.

Psalms 27:5 For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.

Irma

September 6, 2017

There is a great storm coming in our direction within the next few days, for the people who live in Florida and the eastern USA. Hurricanes are dangerous as we have seen in Texas recently. Many people are frightened and are preparing as they should, however, as Christians we should not fear. Pray and trust the Lord for safety. Material things can be replaced but lives cannot.

Psalms 56:3 What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.
