Our Plans

March 20, 2019

Sometimes we make plans that seem very important to us at the time. Then something comes up, and those plans change. Maybe there’s an accident, a friend needs our help, or we cannot do it because we get sick. We are extremely disappointed and wonder, WHY?

God has allowed our plans to change. Remember, God loves us and He knows why. He may reveal the answer, but often He does not. That is when we need to trust Him all the more. He can turn our plans into His plan. The whole direction of our life can turn around in the change of just one of our plans. Are we trusting Him with our disappointments?

Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

Depressed?

If you rearrange the letters of DEPRESSION, you can spell the phrase “I PRESSED ON!”

No matter what you are going through today, don’t give up. Keep the Faith. Trust the Lord. God loves you and has a wonderful plan for your life!

1 Peter 5:7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

God’s Answer to Worry

Praise God

March 3, 2019

Many have heard from Chaplain McCabe’s own fire-touched lips, how this grand old doxology, that has doubtless been on more lips than any other uninspired production, was sung by the starving “boys in blue” [Union soldiers in the American civil war] that were incarcerated in Libby Prison [Richmond, Virginia]. Day after day they saw comrades passing away, and their numbers increased by fresh, living recruits for the grave. One night about ten o’clock, through the stillness and the darkness, they heard the tramp of coming feet, that soon stopped before the prison door until arrangements could be made inside. In the company was a young Baptist minister, whose heart almost fainted as he looked on those cold walls and thought of the suffering inside. Tired and weary, he sat down, put his face in his hands and wept. Just then a lone voice of deep, sweet pathos, sung out from an upper window—

“Praise God from whom all blessings flow;”

and a dozen manly voices joined in the second line—

“Praise Him all creatures here below”

and then by the time the third was reached, more than a score of hearts were full, and these joined to send the words on high—

“Praise Him above ye heavenly host;”

and by this time the prison was all alive, and seemed to quiver with the sacred song, as from every room and cell those brave men sang—

“Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.”

Psalms 30:12 To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.

Favorite Bible Verse

February 20, 2019

I could not resist this beautiful baby’s photo, along with my favorite Bible verse. But the next verse along with this one completes what God is telling us.

Proverbs 3:5&6 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

A Special Valentine

February 14, 2019

Today is Valentines Day. Special because the one we love gets an opportunity to tell us how much he or she loves us. Weddings take place on this day, couples have plans for a romantic dinner, jewelry, cards, flowers and candy given as a token of love. A wonderful day for you, if you have that special someone in your life, but some of you do not have someone to give a gift or say “I love you.” You may be sad today.

This is a special Valentine for you.

1 John 4:16 And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.

Exciting Day

February 2, 2019

This photo was taken at SOS Events Annual Meeting last year. About 35 people attended. Today is the second Annual Meeting and over 75 people have registered. Over double from last year. God is blessing SOS Events with new people and new opportunities. Please pray for a great meeting and God’s continued blessings and that He will expand our coast as He did Jabez.

1 Chronicles 4:10 And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested.

God is Love

February 1, 2019

February is the month we think about Love. Some of us have a wonderful love story and others have only heartache and disappointment in love, but for all of us there is Someone who loves us more than we can ever imagine. God loves us so much He sent His Only Son, Jesus, to die on the cross so we can have eternal life. There is no greater love.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
