Fruit of the Spirit, Joy

May 17, 2022

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Galatians 5:22

In God’s Word we are told that we can have joy in every situation. The joy of the Lord is my strength. when we have trusted in Jesus as our Savior, we have the Holy Spirit dwelling within us. He gives us joy.

Joy is listed as the second fruit of the spirit. If you are lacking joy, feel lonely, fearful or depressed, ask Jesus to help you return to the joy you can have by trusting in Him.

Saturday In Alabama!

May 2, 2022

On the way to the Kymulga Grits Festival this morning we heard the song “Too Good to not Believe ” It had us all in tears as we were preparing to go witness under the SOS Events Ministry tent.

God is so good!!! There were 15 precious people today that surrendered their lives to Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. The joy on their faces is so sweet in these pictures and we are so greatful to be a part of this life saving ministry.

We had the opportunity to pray for burdened hearts and show the love of Jesus to those that needed lifting up. A big thank you to John Balint for coming out to volunteer and helping set up and take down. It’s always a great day to Serve Our Savior!!

And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this is the LORD; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation.

Isaiah 25:9
And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this is the Lord; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation.

Unexpected Blessings!

April 22, 2022

God does great things for us.

Carolyn Curtis, cofounder of SOS Events, had a surprise blessing. Her desire was to see in person her new great granddaughter. It just didn’t work out. Now the baby is six months old and still not much hope of seeing her anytime soon. Most of her grandchildren live a great distance away. This grandson is a missionary to Ireland and they only get to the USA about every 4 years.

She had opportunity to travel to Virginia from Florida to speak at a woman’s meeting. She had no idea her grandson had been speaking at the same church on Wednesday.

What a surprise, when she got to the Pastors home her grandson and family were there. What a great blessing from the Lord!

All the great grandchildren are special but it was a wonderful blessing to get to see one of the newest member of the family.

(Just a note of explanation. Carolyn has 40 grandchildren and 43 great grandchildren.)

Thankful for Joy!

God Turns Stress To Joy

September 16, 2021

The day started out with some stress. Everything was set at the Plant city fleamarket, when the team realized they forgot the table to set the display on. What did they do?

Called and asked someone to bring a table to them. This was very early in the morning but in about 45 minutes the table arrived.

Then God blessed with 14 people who made decisions to follow Jesus. When we are faithful and do not let situations cause us to quit, God blesses our faithfulness with wonderful results. He turned that day of stress into pure joy and rejoicing over the 14 people who were saved.

Rejoice Whatever the Circumstances

August 24, 2021

Can we rejoice in times of trouble and hard circumstances? Yes.

When my youngest son died unexpectedly, I felt my world crash around me. Did I think I could rejoice? No. However, I was teaching school, 5th grade, and one of my students encouraged me everyday.

We would sing this verse of scripture and find one thing to rejoice about that day. It maybe was as small as a butterfly landing on a beautiful flower or some other seemingly insignificant thing. As the days went by I felt the heavy burden lift and GOD brought true joy back into my life. (Testimony by Carolyn Curtis, cofounder SOS Events Ministry)

If you are going through difficult times, remember, this IS THE DAY THE LORD HAS MADE, find something you can be rejoice about.

Joy, Peace and Hope

July 21, 2021

If you lack joy, God wants to fill your life with joy unspeakable.

Need peace? God will give you peace that passes all understanding.

God is the GOD of hope. Put your faith in Him. Our only source of hope is in Jesus..

A Time Of Fun

May 24, 2021

Christians can have fun and enjoy life without using stimulants like alcohol or drugs.

What a great time the Seniors had at Fellowship Baptist Church this past weekend. A great lunch and entertainment by Bob and Darlene Puffer.

After a year of not gathering it was refreshing and joyful to get together with other Christians for a time of relaxation.

Proverbs 17:22 – A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.

Today is a Day to Rejoice

What A Day to Rejoice!

January 30, 2021

In one of the worst times in my life, this verse and song got me through that difficult time.

I made a decision to find something to rejoice about, even if it was as small as being able to get out of bed and brush my hair or seeing a butterfly land on a flower.

God gave me things to be thankful for and He brought joy back into my life, one day at a time.

Today, as I look out my window and watch the sun rise, I rejoice in the day the Lord has made.

Join me in rejoicing.
