Today’s Inspiration Station With Rhonnie Scheuerman

Author:  Marjorie Holmes

“Maybe Jesus has an Eraser!”

I’ll probably never meet Kara, now four years old.  But one day she made a beautiful observation that has helped me. We had been standing on the hillside watching the airplane, skywriting” her grandmother wrote me one day.  “When the words began to disappear, she asked, “Why Grandma ” Where do they go.?”

Then, as I groped for an answer, her little face brightened  “Maybe Jesus has an eraser! ”

I smiled as I read but my eyes filled and suddenly I wanted  to hug that little girl.  For that morning I had been grieving over past mistakes.  A cruel thing I had said to my mother the day I left for college.  And Dad…if only I had invited him to that luncheon where I was to speak- he’d have been so proud.  One tender but  painful memory releases others ! The time  I punished a child unfairly, humiliated  my husband, let a friend down…

No mater how much we mature as people, grow as Christians, try desperately to failures rise up to haunt us and sting- how they sting . For me it’s not the unkindnesses  of others  that hurt so much or last so long, it’s the burden of my own. .  Yes I ask God to forgive me, and try to believe that I am forgiven.  But the memory won’t go away.  And if I can’t forgive myself, how can God?

Then  a little girl in her innocence and wisdom makes me realize,  that writing in the sky that simply disappears, Jesus has wiped away all thing I so bitterly regret.

Jesus does have an eraser.

Look For Things to Be Grateful For 

Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior, who daily bears our burdens. Selah. Psalms

The story is told of a twelve-year-old boy who had never spoken a word in his life. As a result, his parents thought he couldn’t speak. Then one day his mother placed a bowl of soup in front of him and he took a spoonful. He pushed it away and said, ‘This is awful; I won’t eat it!’ The family was ecstatic. His father said, ‘Why haven’t you ever talked to us before?’ The boy replied, ‘Because up until now everything’s been okay.’

The only time some of us speak is to complain! You say, ‘But I’ve got nothing to be grateful for.’ Really? If you slept eight hours last night, there are millions of insomniacs who would gladly switch places with you. If you have a job, a roof over your head, and three square meals a day, there are millions of unemployed people who would like to have your problem. If you were able to get out of bed this morning and move through the day pain free, you’re blessed with the gift of health. Without it you would truly have something to complain about! And what about your salvation? What price would you put on that? Your sins have been forgiven, you have peace with God, and when you die you have a home in heaven. Sure, we all have trials and tough days. But don’t insult God and belittle His blessings by saying you don’t have anything to be grateful for. It’s time you started talking to yourself, as the psalmist did: ‘Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits’ (Psalm 103:2).

Prayer Heavenly Father,

You are such a gracious and merciful God

who has blessed me beyond my imagination. Thank You Jesus. Amen

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE OLDIE? Since 8 years old, I love to discover great sounding tunes that rarely appear on the radio. Flip sides of 45 rpm records that never receive radio airplay. Follow up tunes to #1 hits that never make it on the air. San Antonio, TX has a radio station, KCJV LP (97.9 No Hit Radio and The Greatest Songs You’ve Never Heard), that plays long versions and obscure songs. Tell us. What is an Oldie that you like but never hear on the radio? You might help us discover wonderful, but hidden, tunes too.

According to Gerry Poppe, last week Bernie suffered a stroke which ultimately lead to pneumonia and his situation deteriorated rapidly.

 ” A Grace Filled Journey”  Author… Marilyn Morgan King

Before we left home, Robert and I read to each other about Knossos, where King Minos’s palace had been partially restored by Sir Arthur Evans, a Victorian archeologist,  Now we stand in the throne room of that very palace, admiring the beauty of the wall paintings as  well as the throne itself.  But one structure we wonder about a rectangular enclosure opposite the King’s throne.  Our guide Vicky tells us it was once a pool of water used for purification ritual;.  Before the King’s subjects could have an audience with him. they had to enter into the water to be cleansed.

It made me think of the words of Psalm 51:7 in which ,  the Psalmist prays, “Wash me , and I will be whiter than snow.”  Our king is not named Minos, but He, too offers  a purification ritual.  I’s called the  forgiveness of sins. Jesus asks that I confess my sins, not for His sake but for mine.  When I bring to Him my unclean thoughts and unkind words, my unholy  actions and all the sinfulness in my  life, He gives me the most beautiful  I can receive- a clean heart, worthy to live in His healing presence.

Wash me, Lord, and I shall be whiter than snow – Marilyn Morgan King

 Rejoce always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances   

For this is God’s will for, Christ Jesus  1 Thessalonians  5″16-18

Author Tricia Goyer: It’s taken me a while to feel what that I understand prayer and to consider myself a praying person.  Maybe it’s because of a misconception  that prayer was an event.  I felt it was something I needed to remember to tack on at the end of my day, just like brushing my teeth before bed.  It was a time when I needed to be still and come before Jesus.  There are times when I do that.  I love quiet mornings  on my couch.  Sometimes I even get on my knees before Him, but Is grown to discover prayer is not an event, its a continual conversation.

In the last week I prayed when I started home schooling sever children at one time. (I prayer we’d all learn and get along.) This morning I prayed as I watched my son drive away in the rain. (I prayed for his protection and for a bubble  to surround  his car from crazy  drivers.)  Last night I prayed for a friend when she shared a need on Facebook I didn’t want until the next morning’ quiet time to pray.  As I sat in front of my computer, I closed my eyes for a moment and I asked Jesus to be with her and to give her peace.

We don’t need to wait for a certain time of day to pray, instead we can go to Jesus anytime.  Longer prayer times are important–so listen well as to make requests-  but Jesus’s ear is always attuned to even our small  requests.

Each  of us can be a praying person, and today is a wonderful day to start.

 THE LORD WILL GIVE STRENGTH UNTO HIS PEOPLE ;THE LORD  WILL BLESS HIS PEOPLE WITH PEACE – PSALM 29:11 
GREAT PEACE HAVE THEY WHICH LOVE TE LORD: AND NOTHING SHALL OFFEND THEM – PSALM 119:65
 .

Author Karen  Burton Mains:  Most of us have forgotten how to greet the day.  The knowledge is all but lost to us that a new day is sacred: a gift from God is  arare and precious gift.  A new day brings with it another opportunity to start all over, to raise one’s head from the pillow with a glad heart, to watch the clouds roll across the dark sky now fusing pink, and to breathe that child prayer of gratitude,
O God life again.  Again one more day of life.”

We must relearn how to stand in awe, how to face for a moment the eastern sky with praise and thanksgiving and allow our hearts to be filled with  a corresponding inner daybreak  of adoration .

We must learn to not ever take for granted -no matter how pain-filled our life-that we are alive for granted- and the earth still  turns on it’s axis, that evil has not wobbled the world of its course while we slept, and we must understand this sacramental symbol of life which comes resurrecting  every twenty-four hours .

Celebrating each new day helps us develop the ability be be  grateful  for all new moments and fore the God who is in each one.  The discipline of celebrating each new day influences our attitude toward all of like. A new day signifies: The Lord of mornings is still sovereign over the world.

THE MEEK SHALL INHERIT THE EARTH & SHALL DELIGHT THEMSELVES IN THE ABUNDANCE OF PEACE PSALM 37:11 AMEN

JAY WEAVER [ex KLBK–1360 Lubbock; KBUY–1540 Fort Worth; Several Other Places] (DFW-Hurst, TX) I was hired by Jay Elston in December, 1966 at KCUL. After a three month run at KDNT in Denton where I came to D-FW from Lubbock. I knew Kurt Meir owned the station at that time and the family had sold the station to John Walton who was to take over in January, 1967 with the new KBUY call letters. In the meantime, Meir bought KJIM – 870 AM, a Fort Worth daytimer. My back up plan was to try KJIM if I couldn’t land a spot at KCUL. The new GM at KBUY was Roy Lemons. Lemons was a graduate of Texas Tech, as was I so we got along well. Within a month, about half of the staff left. Bill Mack was doing Mornings at that time, and left for KPCN. Mid-Mornings was Eddie Stewart who left (not sure where he went), but Bo Powell stayed doing afternoons with new PD Mike Bradley doing afternoon drive. The over night jock-engineer, Morgan Choat had already been there for several years and actually stayed until the 80’s when he left to go to KJIM with the Meir Family. Last I heard, Walton still owned an AM-FM station combo in Ruidoso, NM using the KBUY call letters, at 1360 AM and 105.9 FM.

KAREN MASSEY [Duckie ex morning host on KITE-930, KXOL-1360, KBUC FM] (San Antonio, TX) Subject: KXOL Ft. Worth. When I knew Casey (Jones) he only had 2 boys. Did he have the girl before them or after them with another wife. I am sorry to hear he died. As usual what did he die of? I always want to know that question. In fact when I pass on I will have the preacher say, what I died of. It’s like a sentence that has not been finished. If somebody passes away don’t you want to know what they died of. It’s important that the people that knew you in life know how you died. It puts closure to the dead person. Anyway, enough of that, so you and I had to be in Ft. Worth about the same time and didn’t know it. I was so lonely in Ft. Worth I just didn’t have a true home base like I did in San Antonio. I liked Ft. Worth and the rodeo was the best but I really needed some true friends. Duckie ! Director of Sports Sales (www.baywoodhotels.com)

Author Kathyn Hillen: Resolve

Don’t  ever become so busy that you fail to realize how very happy you are!

Resolve: Mother’s statement has meant much to me as I have raised our family.  Whenever I have felt overly busy to the point of neglecting the little  joys, the expression of appreciations, the realization of how happy we are- whenever I play with the children seemed more of a duty than a privilege.  I have thought of Mother’s words   they have been a warning beacon that has changed my attitude toward life and toward what is valuable.

Don’t  ever become so busy that you fail to realize how very happy you are!

Do What God’s Called You to Do

God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”

God told Adam, ‘Be fruitful, and multiply’. In other words, ‘Discover the purpose for which I made you and give yourself fully to it’. Ever observed a great golfer? His level of concentration, the fluid grace as he arcs the club into that little white ball and sends it sailing onto the green? It’s what he was meant to do. He knows it and takes pleasure in it. People who fulfill their calling exude an excitement and a connection to their gift that transcends fame. Most of them have simply found a way to get paid for doing something they love. Money never replaces purpose. When you find the thing you’d gladly do for free – there’s a good chance you’ve found your calling. You were made in the image of God, with a built-in drive to create. That doesn’t mean you must have an artistic temperament to find your life’s purpose. But everyone who’s aware of their calling is in the process of giving birth to something. It may seem obvious that those who are songwriters, artists, and poets are giving birth to their dreams. But so is any one of us who discovers who he or she is, and answers that call through their unique gifts. You may be called to give birth to a business, or invent a technical device that will benefit others, or discover a cure for some disease, or find new systems of efficiency in the workplace. You say, ‘But what if I try and fail?’. The real loser is the one who never attempts to fly with the wings God gave them. So, do what God’s called you to do!

Prayer Heavenly Father,

You created me for a purpose and equipped me to fulfill that purpose.

Help me work within that sweet spot! In Jesus’ Name, Amen

Madeleine L’Engle Author Both poems below

Renew: My moments of being most complete, most integrated, have come either in complete solitude or when I am being part of a body made up of many people going in the same direction.  A vivid example is a great symphony , where each instrument is completely necessary for the whole, violin cannot take the place of a trombone, nor cymbals of the harp, and there are even times when the lowly triangle is the focus of the music.

Rerlect: Take a bit of time to examine yourself.  When are you “most complete, most integrated”! Return to that place that situation, to regain the healthy sense  of self that is so easily lost in our world’s clamor and activity.
