Irma

September 6, 2017

There is a great storm coming in our direction within the next few days, for the people who live in Florida and the eastern USA. Hurricanes are dangerous as we have seen in Texas recently. Many people are frightened and are preparing as they should, however, as Christians we should not fear. Pray and trust the Lord for safety. Material things can be replaced but lives cannot.

Psalms 56:3 What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.

Happy?

May 30, 2017

Want to be happy in life? There is an old hymn that says it all; Trust and obey for there’s no other way, To be happy in Jesus, But to trust and obey. I have included the words because each verse gives us an answer for our problems.

Psalms 62:8 Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. 

When we walk with the Lord

  In the light of His Word,

What a glory He sheds on our way;

  While we do His good will,

  He abides with us still,

And with all who will trust and obey.

Chorus: Trust and obey,

For there’s no other way

To be happy in Jesus,

  But to trust and obey.

Not a shadow can rise,

  Not a cloud in the skies,

But His smile quickly drives it away;

  Not a doubt or a fear,

  Not a sigh or a tear,

Can abide while we trust and obey.

Not a burden we bear,

  Not a sorrow we share,

But our toil He doth richly repay;

  Not a grief or a loss,

  Not a frown or a cross,

But is blest if we trust and obey.

But we never can prove

  The delights of His love,

Until all on the altar we lay;

  For the favor He shows,

  And the joy He bestows,

Are for them who will trust and obey.

Then in fellowship sweet

  We will sit at His feet,

Or we’ll walk by His side in the way;

  What He says we will do;

  Where He sends, we will go,

Never fear, only trust and obey.



Life Decisions 

May 21, 2017

Are you at a crossroad in your life? Having to choose what to do. College or Militaty? House or Apartment? Ministry or Secular Job? Stay Single or Marry? Current Job or New Job? There are so many decisions in life that set the coarse for the rest of your life. One wrong decision and disaster. A right one and joy and prosperity. The first right decision is to accept Jesus as your Savior. The second one is to follow Him and let Him direct your path. Read the Bible, pray and seek Godly council.

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.

Our Pilot

May 18, 2017

Some people have fears. Snakes, the dark, bridges and many more. Flying can be very frightening to some people. Recently while on a flight the plane went through severe tubulence. Lightning, rain, bumpy air pockets. The plane actually dropped several feet which had many passengers crying and a few actually screamed. Then the pilot took the plane above the clouds where the sun was shinning and looking out the window the clouds looked white, fluffy and beautiful. The plane landed safety. It reminds me of our Pilot in life, the Lord Jesus Christ. He takes us through the storms of life and brings us the beautiful blessings in spite of the storm. We have nothing to fear if we put our trust in Him.

Psalms 37:5 Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.

Friday the 13th

January 13, 2017

It is Friday the 13th. Are you superstitious?  There are a number of popular myths and superstitions surrounding the day, most famously:

If you cut your hair on Friday the 13th, someone in your family will die.

If a funeral procession passes you on Friday the 13th, you will be the next to die.

Do not start a trip on Friday or you will encounter misfortune.

If you break a mirror on Friday the 13th, you will have seven years of bad luck.

A child born on Friday the 13th will be unlucky for life.

Ships that set sail on a Friday will have bad luck.

If you walk under a ladder or if a black cat crosses you on Friday the 13th, you will have bad luck.

As a Christian we should not believe in luck, good or bad. We should trust the Lord for everyday no matter what the calendar says. Superstition causes our minds to be confused and results in lack of trust in God.

Psalms 71:1 In thee, O Lord, do I put my trust: let me never be put to confusion.

Do You Feel Safe?

January 7, 2017

Do you feel safe? Everyday there is some news of tragedy. Yesterday, in Florida there was a shooting in the Ft. Lauderdale airport when travelers went to pick up their luggage from a flight they were on. Five deaths and many injuries. Traffic accidents, drive by shootings, robberies and many more dangers are heard about everyday.

Should we as Christians allow fear to rule our lives. NO!! The Bible tells us in both the Old and New Testament to “fear not” over 100 times. God wants us to put our trust in Him. Do bad things happen to good people? Absolutely, but God promises to bring us through all circumstances. Safety is of the Lord.

Psalms 118:6 The Lord is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?

Psalms 4:8 I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, Lord, only makest me dwell in safety.

Have a Blessed New Year

January 1, 2017

2017 is here. Will it be a year full of joy or sorrow? Will we have success or failure? Sickness or health? God does not allow us to see into the future but he does promise to guide us if we put our trust in Him. He is with us in every circumstance, good or bad and He is always good. 

The staff of SOS Events wishes you and your loved ones a happy prosperous New Year. May God bless you as you trust in Him.

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.

Trust the Lord

“When the train goes through a tunnel and the world becomes dark, do you jump out? Of course not. You sit still and trust the engineer to get you through.” Corrie ten Boom

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.

Hurricane

September 2, 2016

 A Hurricane Is passing through our area in Florida and things can get a little frightening. Total darkness with no electricity during the night. Strange sounds of thunder, lightning and trees blowing against the house. That is when everything is out of our control and the only one you can trust in is God. Total dependence on Him for peace and safety.

Storms in life are like that, also. Sometimes things seem dark and frightening. The feeling of helplessness because things are beyond our control. Just like the hurricane, the only One we can turn to is the Lord.

Psalms 91:2 I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

Trust the Lord

July 31, 2016

Sometimes we have plans that seem important at the time and circumstanses come up that those plans change.we often wonder why? As Christians we need to trust the Lord whatever the circumstanses, good or bad. 

He is always with us and guides us if we put our trust in Him.

Psalms 62:8 Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah.
