What God Expects From You !

But the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows.

From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded & from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked. Luke 12:48

Added blessing always brings added responsibility, so: 1) Stop complaining. Happiness doesn’t come from getting what you want; it comes from recognizing and enjoying what you have. So keep a positive attitude and be grateful every day. Rudyard Kipling said, ‘Don’t pay too much attention to fame, power, or money. Someday you’ll meet a person who cares for none of these, and then you’ll know how poor you are’. 2) Stop assuming. When you see your neighbors buying new furniture, taking expensive holidays, and driving the latest car, does something stir inside you to do the same? Be careful; just because someone appears to be in similar circumstances to yours doesn’t mean anything. They might earn twice as much. On the other hand, they may be in debt up to their ears or three-quarters of the way to bankruptcy or a divorce court. Stop making assumptions and trying to be like somebody else. 3) Stop withholding. Bruce Larson said, ‘Money is another pair of hands to heal, feed, and bless the desperate families of the earth. In other words, money is my other self’. But that’s only true if you’re willing to part with it. Money is like manure: If you let it pile up it stinks; if you spread it around it helps things grow. Money gives you options the less fortunate can only pray for. And one more very important thought: How you see your money – that it is all God’s -and how you use His resources that He entrusted you with- will be asked on the Judgement Day. “I was hungry, did you feed me …… Matthew 25:34-46

Prayer Heavenly Father,

help me be faithful with what You have entrusted me with to do Your will.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen

God Does Value What You Do

God is not unjust he will not forget your work & the love you have shown him as you have helped his people & continue to help them

Satan will try to convince you that you don’t count for much in God’s kingdom because you don’t have a high-profile gift like preaching, teaching, or leading in public. Nothing could be further from the truth: ‘God…will not forget your work and the love you have shown…as you…helped his people.’ God sees you working behind the scenes day in and day out, caring for aging loved ones, raising your children, encouraging others, and contributing where you can. Will Rogers said, ‘We can’t all be heroes. Somebody has to sit on the curb and clap as they go by.’ So when you think you’re too small to do big things, try doing small things with a big heart of love. You never know what you can do until you try! James Sizoo said: ‘Glamour isn’t greatness, applause isn’t fame, and prominence isn’t eminence. The man of the hour isn’t apt to be the man of the ages. A stone may sparkle but that doesn’t make it a diamond. People may have money but that doesn’t make them a success. It’s the seemingly unimportant people who determine the course of history. The greatest forces in the universe are never spectacular. Summer showers do more good than hurricanes, but they don’t get a lot of publicity. The world would soon die but for the fidelity, loyalty, creativity, and commitment of those whose names are unhonored and unsung.’ Today God values what you do. ‘Don’t get discouraged and give up, for [you] will reap a harvest of blessing at the appropriate time’ (See Galatians 6:9).

Prayer Heavenly Father,

I have peace knowing that You know me and know what You can do through me in small important ways!

Thank You for working through me. In Jesus’ Name, Amen

Share Your Life  – All the believers were one in heart and mind.

No one claimed that any of his possessions was his own,

but they shared everything they had. Acts 4:32

When you read the story of the New Testament Church, you tend to get caught up in its explosive growth and amazing miracles. But here’s a component you shouldn’t miss: ‘No one claimed that any of his possessions was his own, but they shared everything they had…There were no needy persons among them…those who owned lands or houses sold them, brought the money…and it was distributed to anyone as he had need’ (vv. 32-35). You say, ‘If I just had more money I’d be happy.’ You might feel more secure and have fewer worries, but you wouldn’t necessarily be happier. In the Journal of Happiness Studies, researchers looked at what distinguished quite happy people from less happy people. One factor consistently separated those two groups. It’s not about how much money you have; it’s not about your health, security, attractiveness, IQ, or career success.

What distinguishes consistently happy people from less happy people is the presence of rich, deep, joy-producing, life-changing, meaningful relationships. Social researcher Robert Putnam writes: ‘The single most common finding from a half-century’s research on life satisfaction, not only in the U.S. but around the world, is that happiness is best predicted by the breadth and depth of one’s social connections.’ But you can know a lot of people without really being known by any of them, and end up lonely.

Those folks in the New Testament Church got it right: it’s in sharing with one another spiritually, emotionally, financially, and relationally that you achieve your highest level of joy.

Prayer Heavenly Father,

thank You for putting into my life people I am able to share life with.

People who know You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen

Tim Hetzner, President of Lutheran Church Charities and author of WORD Bible Studies.

ALL THE NEWS THAT IS NEWS

YOU’RE IN A HEAP OF TROUBLE BIDS GOOD BYE In the early 1970s, we remember actor Joe Higgins as a sheriff in Dodge commercials say: Boy, you’re in a heap of trouble. We also remember character actor Clifton James who creates a niche for himself as a Southern Sheriff from Louisiana in 1973’s James Bond flick Live and Let Die. His Southern drawl returns 1974’s James Bond film The Man with the Golden Gun. On Saturday morning, April 15, 2017 Clifton James passes away at 96 just blocks away from his childhood home.

MORNING ZOO RETURNS TO GOTHAM CITY Last year’s one-day WCBS FM (Z100) Morning Zoo reunion in New York City with Scott Shannon and Ross Brittain on April 1, 2016 is such a huge hit that the 2017 Morning Zoo reunion runs for four days beginning Tuesday, April 18, 2017 and runs all week long. Get ready to roll tape, because the stroll down memory lane fun begins early Tuesday on The Big Show With Scott Shannon In The Morning.

PHILLY FM RADIO’S PADRE GOES GOLD After he graduates from Youngtown State University in 1960, Jerry Lee becomes interested in the future of radio. In 1963, Jerry Lee moves to Philadelphia, PA to form a partnership with the late engineer with Philco Electronics Dave Kurtz, and launches WDVR FM (101.1) [now WBEB FM] mix of familiar music which becomes the #1 FM radio station in Philadelphia. On May 7, 2017 Jerry Lee receives the Pennsylvania Association of Broadcasters’ highest award, The Gold Medal.

WILL DIGITAL RADIO KILL FM? Do you remember when, instead of watching dramas at home on a TV screen, we listen to them on the radio? In 1975, during the CB craze, we radio DJs fear that CB radio will kill AM radio. FM pretty much signs a death warrant for AM radio. Smartphones and now digital radio have FM radio in its sights. In January 2017, Norway is the first country to end FM radio. A surge in digital listeners brings a new golden age of radio which might trigger the beginning of the end of FM listening.

DAVE TUCKER [ex KFJZ-1270, KXOL-1360, KBOX-1480] (Ft. Worth, TX) When I was a child disk jockey in west Texas in the early 60’s I had occasion to meet Chuck Berry. I forgot exactly how I found out that Chuck would don a pair of shades and come out to the lobby to see what mood the audience was in. I spotted him and tapped on his shoulder. He remembered me and we had a quick chat. The next time he came to Lubbock I sought him out again. This was one of the three times I met Chuck Berry. I think I was working for KSEL or KLBK. at that time. I know he had a lot of patience to put up with a pesky young disk jockey. He was always friendly. I remember Chuck Berry. About this time I was headed for KBOX in Dallas. That’s another story.

Author Ruth Bell Graham: The Fools

jesus041

“THE FOOL says in his heart “There is no God.””This designation goes for those who doubt God’s   sovereignty  as well as those that  deny him. Either he is sovereign, or He is not God. Therefore when we become so preoccupied with and dismayed by circumstances and certain people that we doubt God’s ability to Handel  things in His own way, and in His own time, then we, too are fools.

Help Lord, I’m Freaking Out!

When I am afraid, I will put my trust in You. In God, whose word I praise,

In God I have put my trust; I shall not be afraid. What can mere man do to me?… (Psalm 56:3)

Fear is the untamed monster that rears its ugly head and compels otherwise peaceful people to react in ways contrary to their rational beliefs. Take for example a crowded room where someone shouts “fire!” Even in the absence of flame and smoke, people have a panic reaction and start bolting for the nearest exit. It’s natural to fear and sometimes even necessary. It’s when fear becomes our modus operandi that we begin to filter life events through a faulty method causing our decisions and reactions to run amuck.

God never intended for us to be dominated by fear; fear is the devil’s playground. How can we overcome the debilitating effects of fear gone wild? Psalm 56:3 offers an answer. When you are afraid: 1) Trust in the Lord: God’s sovereignty controls all that touches your life. You are not a victim of your world but rather a blood-bought child of God, a child of the Most High King. The same God whose eye is on the sparrow has set His eyes on you. (Matthew 10:29-31). 2) Worship the Lord:Praising God in worship dispels the darkness, refocusing your spirit and mind on the kindness of the Savior. (Isaiah 12:2). 3) Rejoice in the Lord: The Psalmist asks, “What can mere man do to me?” You are not bound by the constraints of man. You have been redeemed and made a conqueror; and not just an ordinary conqueror but more than a conqueror in the Name of Jesus Christ.  (Romans 8:37).

Don’t let the fear of man, the shift in culture or the instability of world events freak you out! When you are tempted to fear, to doubt the goodness and sovereignty of God, remember Paul’s encouragement to the church; “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:38-39).

Prayer Heavenly Father,

when I am afraid I will place my trust in You.

You hold my future in Your hands and in You I find refuge and hope.

Thank You for Your Son, Jesus Christ in Whose Name I pray and am secure, Amen.

What’s Your Vision for This Year?

Where there is no revelation the people cast off restraint but blessed is he who keeps the law Proverbs 29:18

What are you planning to do with this New Year? What you set your heart on will determine how you spend your time and energy. And it takes as much effort to live an unfulfilled life as a richly rewarding one. Some scientists have recently estimated that the human brain has between 10 and 100 terabytes of capacity, which means we all have lots of room for growth. One of the most rewarding things you can do this year is work to develop your mind. ‘Where there is no vision [sense of direction], the people perish.’ Dissatisfaction doesn’t come from the absence of things, but the absence of direction. Too many of us merely exist because we’ve settled for less than God intended. The quality of your life will be determined by your vision and the effort you’re willing to put into fulfilling it. So stop and make a written list of the areas where you’d like to grow this year, then tackle the three or four most important ones. Don’t get discouraged if the one you’re working on doesn’t want to co-operate; nothing great is ever created suddenly. Paul said of his faith, ‘I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus’ (Philippians 3:14). It’s a process; you have to keep plugging away. Some days it’ll feel like two steps forward and three steps backward. But don’t give up. It’s better to die for something than to live for nothing! And unless you try something beyond what you’ve already mastered, you won’t grow. So what are you waiting for? Life? It’s waiting for you – so get going!

Prayer Heavenly Father,

a new year, and new opportunities You have in store for me.

Help me walk forward in faith, trusting You to guide and direct.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen

“The Battle For The Soul Of America Still Rages”

Author: David Barnhart

Many Christians in America today are under the illusion that the election of Donald Tramp as president have put America back on track, so we can all relax, at least for the next four years.  What these people are not taking into consideration is the tenacity and ferociousness of the radical left and its plans to  retake the nation by whatever means necessary.   If there was ever a time for vigilance, that time is now!  One does not have to have a Ph,D in street smarts to know we are in for a royal battle in the coming months and years.

Never in my lifetime have I ever witnessed as much hatred, vitriol and animosity as exist today.  Intolerance is alive and well in America.  At the slightest  provocation or disagreement, hate–filled mobs rush to the streets burning, looting and even killings .  Reportedly some are being paid to carry out such protests. These of course  are not protests; they are riots and anarchy.  If left unchecked, they have the capacity to destroy our nation.  Leftists who constantly  preach respect  for every body are among the most intolerable  in the country.

On college campuses across the nation, free speech is being redefined as the right to express and uphold only leftist  positions on issues.  In the halls of government, leftist positions have left civility at the door as they elevate rancor  and discord to a new level.  Vitriol and hate-speech are now the norm  leftist radio and television shows. including so-called news programs.

The Women’s March in Washington, D.C. and other cities across America the day after President Tromp’s inauguration was a spectacle of violence, vulgarity and hatred   including the comment  by a Hollywood personality about “wanting to burn down the White house.”  Some leftists are openly calling for the assassination of the President.

There is a growing intolerance  among the nations.  Threats, real and imagined, are being hurled by one country against another, including threats of nuclear proliferation  this is dangerous talk in deed.

Sadly hate speech  and vitriol are tricking down to our homes, families and churches.  The slightest disagreement today is likely to prompt estrangement  from loved ones, neighbors, friends, and fellow church members.  As James declared about Christian speech: …………

” from the same mouth come both blessing and cursing.

My brethen, these things ought not to be this way” James3:10

I also said about Tom T Hall, “He kept playing with me leg and I didn’t even fancy him”. Now I look at things in a different light and boy! do I fancy him now. He is married to an English Girl you know. Duckie! Director of Sports Sales Baywood Hotels (www.baywoodhotels.com)

TRIVIA ANSWER: On April 5, 1948, Tom Pepperday, owner/publisher of The Journal, signs on KOB TV Albuquerque, NM as the 1st TV station between Mississippi River and West Coast.

GARY MCBRAYER [KBOX-1480 enthusiast and historian] (Ridgewood, NJ) Wow – a KGKO (1480) survey would be a rare piece of memorabilia! In case you’ve never visited it, there is an amazing website for old surveys at http://las-solanas.com/arsa/. The site has posted thousands of surveys from stations from all over the US and willingly accepts scans of old surveys. They have a nice collection from most of the great Texas Top 40 stations from the 60s and 70s, including those from my very meager KBOX (1480) and KLIF (1190) collection. Gary

JIM PALMER [Baseball Hall of Fame pitcher for 19 years] (October 15, 1945 – p) Your memorabilia becomes more significant. It does put you in a different category.
