It’s All About Jesus!

April 29, 2022

Jesus! In God’s Word, the Bible, Jesus has many names. He is the beginning and the end.

If we don’t know anything else, the one thing we must know and believe to have eternal life is that Jesus died on the cross, He was buried and 3 days later He rose from the dead.

Once we know and accept Him all the other things that He is will become clear.

Jesus is our rock, our advocate, our redeemer and friend. Look at some of Hiss names in the image above and Praise Him for all He has done.

1 Corinthians 6:11 – And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

Homesick For Heaven

April 25, 2022

Have you ever been away from your home and felt homesick?

As Christians we should be longing for our permanent home which is Heaven. The cares of this life overwhelm us at times.

Even in good times, like getting married or having a new baby, we should still have a desire to look to our heavenly home, Heaven.

Think about the joy of seeing our Savior, Jesus! Reunion with loved ones who have gone on before us. Not to mention the wonderful plans Jesus has for us that we cannot even imagine.

Homesick for Heaven!

What’s Your Weather Like Today?

April 23, 2022

Whatever your weather is where you are, stormy, cold, hot, or beautiful, one thing we need to do is praise the Lord.

God is with you today. It may not be physical weather outside that concerns you, it may be a situation or turmoil within. Whatever you need, God is with you to bring into your life sunny weather.

Praise Him as if the day is sunny already and He will give you peace and joy!

Can’t Pray?

April 21, 2022

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.

When And How We Speak

April 20, 2022

The Bible tells us a lot about how and when we should speak.

Proverbs 21 gives great advice, we will stay out of trouble if we keep our mouth shut. Angry? Sop! Say nothing. Wait and allow time to cool off before we address the subject.

Ephesians 4:29 Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.

James 1:26 – If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain.

1 Peter 3:10 – For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile:

These are great verses, and there are many more, that teach us to be careful how and when to speak. God will bless us abundantly if we can ask Him to help us to speak kind, encouraging words.

A Cure For Shot Nerves!

April 19, 2022

Thinking of something to encourage those who read this blog, I chose a book on hymns, “Then Sings My Soul” by Robert J. Morgan.
He wrote a forward “The Cure For Shot Nerves”. Thinking that is a catchy title, I read what he wrote about how the old hymns can calm the spirit and help bring peace to the soul.

It is rare in some churches to even hear the old hymns anymore and that is sad.
“In the Garden” He walks with me/ and He talks with me/ and tells me I am His own.
“Jesus Loves Me”, “Amazing Grace”, “I Need Thee Every Hour” and many more that encourage the heart.

Today, if you are stressed, feeling overwhelmed, or just plan discouraged, think of your favorite hymn and sing it, hum it or just let it flood your mind with how good God is, and soon you will find the comfort you need.

God Is Able!

April 18, 2022

Sometimes we think GOD is not able to turn situations in our lives around.

In ministry we get discouraged because we don’t see results right away. SOS Events has places that we set up a booth every year. Maybe in the past people have not been receptive to hearing the gospel. We go one more time, praying that GOD will work on hearts of the people passing by and also that the SOS Events volunteers will be able to present the gospel in a simple non confrontational way.

Then GOD does what only GOD can do and many people come and accept Jesus as their Savior.

God is able to turn around any situation in you life that seems impossible.

Don’t Be Distracted

April 12, 2022

It is so easy to get distracted by things that are beyond our control. If our attention is on the news, we can become fearful.

Everywhere we look there is something that can cause us to take our eyes off Jesus and live in fear and uncertainty, but we have promises in God’s Word that He is with us, He has everything in control and He is with us through any situation.

“Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.” Isaiah 41:10

Do You Want To Be Blessed?

Jeremías 17:7 – Bendito el varón que se fía en Jehová, y cuya confianza es Jehová.

Pray for Pastors

March 27, 2022

Pastors have burdens that are far above the average Christian. They need to be renewed by the Spirit everyday. Family, church congratulation, administration and many things that are heavy on their hearts, especially at this difficult time in the world.

Your Pastor has to make hard decisions about when to open doors of the church to everyone, should we sing, should we have class, what about the children. I need to protect my family.

Please lift your Pastor in prayer. And really bless him by asking what you can do to help. A kind word or a note might make the difference in his life today.
