Jesus Calms the Storm

June 19, 2019

Ordinarily, the is no fear of storms. In Florida with hurricanes and other disasters a thunderstorm would not be fearful. But last night the loudest claps of thunder was so strong it actually shook the house and no one in this area could sleep.

Fear of fire from lightning and fallen trees from wind brought fear into my heart. Then with prayer and calming Bible verses sweet peace filled my heart knowing Jesus would calm the storm. Sleep during the rest of the storm. Praising the Lord this morning for His protection.

A Bible Verse For You

It Is Well

September 20, 2018

Do you have peace in time of heartache and trouble? Is it well with your soul? May this story of a great hymn bring you comfort and peace.

Philippians 4:7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ

Horatio Spafford had a nice life in the Chicago suburbs with his wife and five children and always welcomed guests in their home. Then in 1870, his 4-year-old died of scarlet fever, and in 1871 the Great Chicago Fire destroyed most of his investments (which were in Chicago real estate).

In 1873, the family wanted to sail to Europe for much-needed time away from their tragedy and to help in a revival, but on the day of departure, Horatio had a last-minute business emergency. He sent the family on ahead and planned to follow on another ship in a few days. But their ship was struck by another ship and sank in 12 minutes—the remainder of his four children died and only his wife was saved and brought to England. He immediately set sail to be with his wife, and as his ship passed the place where his daughters drowned, he penned It Is Well, and music was composed to accompany it in 1876.

It Is Well With My Soul

When peace like a river, attendeth my way,

When sorrows like sea billows roll

Whatever my lot, thou hast taught me to say

It is well, it is well, with my soul

It is well

With my soul

It is well, it is well with my soul

Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,

Let this blest assurance control,

That Christ has regarded my helpless estate,

And hath shed His own blood for my soul

It is well (it is well)

With my soul (with my soul)

It is well, it is well with my soul

My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought

My sin, not in part but the whole,

Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,

Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, o my soul

It is well (it is well)

With my soul (with my soul)

It is well, it is well with my soul

It is well (it is well)

With my soul (with my soul)

It is well, it is well with my soul

We are deeply saddened to inform you that there was a plane crash involving Moody Aviation with three fatalities. We do not have all the details yet but emergency responders and government officials have been on the scene. An official investigation is underway. More details to follow.

Storms

May 16, 2018

in Florida there have been many storms in the last few days. These pictures (borrowed from my website) show a beautiful rainbow. It reminds us of the storms of life. We may have trials, sorrows and difficulties, however, they pass and we find peace and contentment because God has walked with us through our storms. And at the end when they are over there is joy.

Psalms 30:5 For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.

Weeping Lady

March 3, 2018

Yesterday in the SOS Events booth at Strawberry Festival, a woman (we will call her Sue) and her husband came over to see the “3 Things God Can Not Do”. As she talked with the volunteer at the display she was openly weeping. She was greatly distressed because one of her family members had taken her life just a short while ago. Sue finally consented to come back to the soul winning table and talk with the soul winner. Still crying she listened as the soul winner told her of the love that Jesus had for her and that she needed the peace and comfort that only Jesus can give. Hearing the plan of salvation, Sue and her husband both prayed and invited Jesus to be their Savior. Immediately, the tears stopped and a small smile came across Sue’s face. The peace of God had touched her heart. What a blessing to take part in a Ministry where lives are changed. The SOS Events slogan is “A life saving ministry” and we see the evidence at every event.

Philippians 4:7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Concerned About the Future?

December 28, 2017

Looking forward to the New Year is exciting for some and discouraging for others. Many people of all ages have real concerns about the future. Young adults who are single are wondering if they will find the right person to marry. Jobs are uncertain and they do not know what the future will bring. The young married couples face problems of child rearing to be overwhelming at times or maybe making decisions on having a family at all. Middle age brings different kind of trials. Many have children still at home, grandchildren coming along and possibly elderly parents that need care. Then the elderly may have health problems, financial concerns and fears about death. All of these people have genuine concerns, and without proper guidance the future may look grim. BUT, the answer to all of these uncertainties is in One person, the Lord Jesus. He is the answer. He told us to cast our care upon Him. Total trust in Jesus will bring peace and encouragement no matter what our age or circumstance. He will answer prayer and bring into our life what is best or us.

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

Peace and Joy

December 26, 2017

Christmas is over, the presents are opened, leftovers are in the fridge and the cleanup and putting away of decorations has begun. Many people feel a letdown after the long awaited day is over. However for the Christian, the joy of knowing Jesus, not as a baby in a manger, but as our  Lord and Savior brings an inner peace and joy that only we can know.

May the sprit of “peace on earth, goodwill toward men” be with you today and throughout the year everyday.

Romans 15:13 Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.
