Pray for the USA!

October 15, 2020

2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

A wonderful verse for today! God promises safety and freedom from fear if we listen to Him.

The Cure For Shot Nerves

July 28, 2020

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.

Peace In Troubled Times

July 20, 2020

When everyday things seem to get worse, especially if we listen to the news on TV, radio or other media, God give us blessed promises.

Jesus promised us peace in our hearts. The world around us may seem like gloom and doom, but we can have complete peace and freedom from fear. Cast all your cares upon Jesus. He cares for you.

Flag Day

June 14, 2020

Many Americans do not know that today, June 14, is Flag Day. This day is set aside to commemorate the original flag of the USA. The original had 13 stripes and 13 stars.

The Revolutionary War was fought by the patriots in 13 colonies. Each colony had its own flag. George Washington and the founding fathers decided that there should be one flag to show unity of the new Country.

Today, more than ever we need to once again come together in unity and peace.

God has richly blessed the USA with years of peace and prosperity. We citizens and especially Christians should unite together in love. We need to pray for our country, not only on Flag Day but everyday that God will restore peace, love and respect for one another.

Romans 12:10 Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another;

Trusting Jesus In The Storm

April 4, 2020

And the same day, when the even was come, he saith unto them, Let us pass over unto the other side.
And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was in the ship. And there were also with him other little ships.
And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full.
And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish?
And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.
And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?
And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?
Mark 4:35-41

The Coronavirus feels like a great storm to many. Jesus is saying to us, “Peace be still.” Turn to Him to calm your fearful heart.

Stressed? Look to God’s Word!

March 20, 2020

This past week I was at the doctors office waiting to take a stress test. It happened to be on a day when I was stressed. My phone kept ringing because people wanted to know if SOS Events annual meeting was still going on. I was sitting in the doctors office for almost 1 hour. The office was empty and still they had not called me.

I was getting more stress by the minute. Finally, I ask the nurse who opened the door when they were going to call me, and he said they had no paperwork on me. Another 10 minute wait. By now my stress level was really high, my blood pressure was higher than it has ever been.

I thought for sure I would fail the stress test. I had to sit in the tall chair for 10 minutes without moving or talking. During that time I kept quoting Bible verses that I had learned over the years. Immediately, I felt total peace and calm.

Yesterday I got a call from the doctors office and I had passed the stress test. I know that it was God’s word that calmed my heart, brought my blood pressure down and allowed me to pass this test.

All the praise goes to the Lord. And a reminder to hide God’s word in our heart for a time such as this.

Psalms 119:114 Thou art my hiding place and my shield:
I hope in thy word.
