Peace Be Still

June 6, 2016

Mark 4:39And he (Jesus) arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.

Residents of Florida and the East Coast are preparing for a tropical storm named Colin. June 1st, hurricane season starts. Many people fear these storms and it is right to take precautions, however, as Christians we know that the Lord is in control.

We also have “storms” in our lives for which we have no control, but He is the only One who can control every situation with those words, “Peace be still.” Whatever the storm is for you today or in the future if it be physical, mental or spiritual turn to Jesus to calm your fears and bring peace to your heart.

Jesus Loves Me

September 1, 2015

Last evening Tom Curtis received a phone call from a Christian friend who is facing some very serious life threatening health problems. This friend became very fearful and almost was in the state of panic. Our friend lives 800 miles away in a different state.

Tom talked to him, prayed with him, and read some scripture to him. Finally,Tom and Carolyn started to sing “Jesus loves me this I know.”

That little children’s song calmed the heart of our Christian friend. He was able to drive to a friends home so he would not be alone. Tom stayed on the phone with him until we were sure he had gotten to a safe place.

Jesus loves me! This I know,

For the Bible tells me so;

Little ones to Him belong;

They are weak, but He is strong.

Refrain:

Yes, Jesus loves me!

Yes, Jesus loves me!

Yes, Jesus loves me!

The Bible tells me so.

Jesus loves me! This I know,

As He loved so long ago,

Taking children on His knee,

Saying, “Let them come to Me.”

Jesus loves me still today,

Walking with me on my way,

Wanting as a friend to give

Light and love to all who live.

Jesus loves me! He who died

Heaven’s gate to open wide;

He will wash away my sin,

Let His little child come in.

Jesus loves me! He will stay

Close beside me all the way;

Thou hast bled and died for me,

I will henceforth live for Thee.

Colossians 3:16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

Witness for JESUS 

March 22, 2015

JESUS came into the world to die on the cross so people could be saved from the penalty of their sins. His love for us is beyond our comprehension. 

His will for those of us who are saved is to tell others of His great love and give them the plan of salvation. Many Christians do not witness. Fear is probably the biggest reason they do not tell others. SOS Events simple method the “3 Things God CanNot Do” helps to take away fear and excuses. SOS has tools, training, tracts and tactics to help anyone become a witness for Christ. All it takes is an email: info@sosevents.org or a phone call 813-784-8242 if you need help to become a soul winner.


For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.  Luke 19:10

His Eye Is On The Sparrow

January 6, 2015

The hymn, “His eye is on the Sparrow” was inspired by a couple, the Doolittle’s of Elmira, New York.
The wife had been confined to bed for many years.
Her husband was a semi invalid and worked from his home in a wheelchair.
The songwriter, Civilla Martin, tells of the visit to the Doolittle’s in 1904.
She was impressed with the joyful spirit the Doolittle’s maintained in spite of their severe disabilities.
She ask Mrs. Doolittle how she could continue such a joyful spirit when she had so many problems.
Her answer was “How can I be discouraged when my heavenly Father watches over each little sparrow and I know he loves and cares for me.”
Mrs. Martin was so impressed over the joyful attitude that she immediately wrote the words to the hymn “His Eye is on the Sparrow.”
This hymn has been recorded by several artists and has been an encouragement to many of God’s people.

Why should I feel discouraged, why should the shadows come,
Why should my heart be lonely, and long for heav’n and home,
When Jesus is my portion? My constant Friend is He:
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me;
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.
Refrain:
I sing because I’m happy, I sing because I’m free,
For His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.
“Let not your heart be troubled,” His tender word I hear,
And resting on His goodness, I lose my doubts and fears;
Though by the path He leadeth, but one step I may see;
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me;
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.
Whenever I am tempted, whenever clouds arise,
When songs give place to sighing, when hope within me dies,
I draw the closer to Him, from care He sets me free;
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me;
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.

Luke 12:6-7
Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God?
But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore:ye are of more value than many sparrows.

Hebrews 13:6
So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.

Fear by John Westley

October 28, 2014

“Give me one hundred preachers who fear nothing but sin and desire nothing but God, and I care not whether they be clergymen or laymen, they alone will shake the gates of Hell and set up the kingdom of Heaven upon Earth.”
-John Wesley

Psalms 111:10
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom:
a good understanding have all they that do his commandments:
his praise endureth for ever.

Fear of Storm

August 15, 2014

20140815-062558-23158791.jpg
Baby, our little chihuahua, is terrified of thunder. Last night there was a thunder storm that was extremely loud. Baby sleeps in a crate by our bed and usually loves her bed and has no problem sleeping. But when the thunder got loud she started to whimper in fear. Finally, I got up and put her in our bed. Immediately, she curled up and was sound asleep, knowing she was protected by her master.
We have a Protecter, The Lord Jesus, who is waiting to calm our fears in the storms of our life. When fear overtakes us we can trust Him to bring us through the storm in peace and safety.

Hebrews 13:6

So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.
