Can’t Pray

July 19, 2019

Sometimes our hearts are heavy or our minds are so clouded with cares of our life that we don’t know how to pray. We do have the Holy Spirit who then prays through us and for us. Try in those times to find one thing to be thankful for and tell Jesus thank you for that. Remember, He knows about the situation and can help in any circumstance.

Romans 8:26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

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!

Results After 15 Years

July 11, 2019

In the early days of SOS Events Ministry, Tom and Carolyn went to several Church Conferences to promote the ministry. They traveled to Illinois and set up a table with information about SOS Events. Pastors would come to the table and ask to be put on the mailing list.

Yesterday, one of those Pastors, Dale Williams, from Naperville, IL called and wanted a display board and materials to use in an event on August 2&3 this year. He has people in his congregation excited to start witnessing at events. They will take their training online.

One of the goals And prayers of SOS Events is to have teams in every state and God is supplying in wonderful ways. This was a contact made about 15 or 16 years ago. We never know when that contact or witness will bring forth results. The encouragement to you is this, if we keep sowing we will reap if we faint not.

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

Communication

July 9, 2019

Have you tried to contact someone who does not answer the phone, email or text? It can be so frustrating, especially if it is important to you. Communication is vital in a relationship, marriage, family, friendship or business. There is One who is always willing to communicate with you. God is a prayer away and He is always listening for your call. He answers every call.

Isaiah 65:24 And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.

Vacations

July 8, 2019

Many of us are going on vacations this time of year. We take time from our routine to “get away”. God never slumbers or goes on vacation. He is always there watching over us and taking care of us. This morning take a minute to Thank Him for His Omnipresence.

Psalms 121:2&3 My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.

He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.

Jesus Calms the Storm

June 19, 2019

Ordinarily, the is no fear of storms. In Florida with hurricanes and other disasters a thunderstorm would not be fearful. But last night the loudest claps of thunder was so strong it actually shook the house and no one in this area could sleep.

Fear of fire from lightning and fallen trees from wind brought fear into my heart. Then with prayer and calming Bible verses sweet peace filled my heart knowing Jesus would calm the storm. Sleep during the rest of the storm. Praising the Lord this morning for His protection.
