Author:  Erin Keeley Marshall

Have you ever faced something new in your life and been confused about what Jesus was doing, How much He was really involved in your circumstances?  These days I’m confused about some new things Jesus is doing with my family.  My husband started a new business and we’ve relocated to a new neighborhood, and frankly, life feels foreign , as if I landed in the middle of someone else’s life and am supposed to take it from here.  It’s unfamiliar territory , and at any given moment I feel more unsettled  than peaceful.

But I’ve enough history with Jesus that even when my feelings speak otherwise, I know who holds today and the future.  He’s  the same One Who has held me to this point.  When I quiet myself, I can recognize Him.  I have to look for Him, just as He invited His shell- shocked followers to do when they struggled with fears and shaken peace at the new way He was showing up in their day-to-day lives.  They’d never seen Him appear suddenly like that.  They were uncertain and scared about how to respond or even process what had just happened.

Jesus is Lord of the new, and I need to be ready for Him to do something new in my life. As they were talking about these things, Jesus himself stood among them, and said to them, Peace to you!  But they were startled and frightened and though they saw a spirit.  And he said to them. “Why are you troubled, and why do doubts  arise in your hearts?

See my hands and my feet that it is I myself…”Luke 24:36-39

AT&T MAY UNLOAD CNN Where are government monopoly breakers when we need them the most? Remember way back in January 8, 1982 when the federal government breaks up the Bell System monopoly? What a disaster that becomes! Well, AT&T is back at it again with a buyout of Time Warner for $85 billion. The rumor mill suggests that after they merge, AT&T’s top executives ponder divesting a few of Time Warner’s assets that includes cable news giant CNN, plus celebrity gossip site TMZ.

JIM BELL [KUHF FM 88.7 Morning Edition anchor since 1997-retires 2010] (Lufkin, TX) At about the same time in the early sixties, businessman Leroy Gloger bought KRCT AM in Pasadena, changed the calls to KIKK, and changed Houston’s Country Music scene forever. Gloger wanted the Uptown Country style Chet Atkins was pioneering in Nashville, so he threw out the drawling hayseed announcers and hired polished professional uptown jocks from the Pop Music stations. Bailey was one of his first hires and his first Program Director. Bailey hired other pop jocks and lured the infamous “tell-it-like-it is” news-caster Richard Dobbyn away from KILT. Together Bailey and Dobbyn made KIKK AM and FM the most listened-to stations in Houston. Under Bailey’s guidance, KIKK trademarked the famous “Boot-I-Boot-Boot” logo and the “I’m a KIKKER” and “KIKK-UP Truck” bumper stickers. Bailey holds the distinct honor of sending the first Country music to the moon when he gave a cassette tape.

JAY WEAVER [ex KLBK–1360 Lubbock; KCUL-1540; KBUY-1540; KPCN-730) Several Other Places] (DFW-Hurst, TX) The death of Glenn Campbell is difficult even though we knew it was coming. When I was at KBUY in Fort Worth, Glenn had just arrived on the scene. The phone would “ring off of the hook” with requests for “By The Time I Get To Phoenix”, “Wichita Lineman” and the ten or so charted hits. It was uncanny! Bill and Corky Kuykendall were fortunate enough to book Campbell for a Saturday night appearance. Rhonda and I were there, of course! It was beautiful AND to top it off, Rhonda got to speak with Glenn backstage. My wife has never been close to being a “groupie”, but she will never forget that!

MIKE MARSHALL [former DJ on KNOK-970, KBOX-1480, KFJZ-1270, AFN-BERLIN, WFAA-820/570, KPRC-950, KXYZ-1320, KULF-790, KQUE FM, KBME-790] (Houston, TX) Subject: WFAA. Jim, its a privilege to have my birthday remembered in JRRR and an even bigger one to still be around to celebrate another one, my 79th. Leslie Wayne Hodges also mentioned that he listened to me on WFAA 820 at 8:05. I will forgive him a slight lapse of memory after 50 years. We switched from 570 to 820 at 7:00 and my show started at 7:05 after the news, two newscasts actually because 570 carried ABC news at :55 and 820 carried NBC on the hour. For your readers who don’t know about WFAA 570/820 it’s a long story. Google it.

TRIVIA ANSWER: On August 7, 1981 the FCC establishes General Radiotelephone Operator License, plus it ceases from issuing First and Second Class Operator licenses.

CHARLES GEORGE [KC5RAI, ex KCHU FM] (Dallas, TX) I find I am listening less to the radio. But part of that is because the songs I like I already have in most cases. And those I don’t I can usually fake on my guitar by finding the words and chords using Google. I do not have Cable since my antenna from RCA is more than enough for me. Besides I like Radio better than TV. 73, Charles, KC5RAI

GROUCHO MARX (October 2, 1890 – August 19, 1977) I must say I find television very educational. The minute somebody turns it on, I go to the library and read a good book.

“Maybe Jesus has an Eraser!”

jesus040

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.

 ” 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

The E Generation

“A fool expresses all his emotions, but a wise person controls them.” (Proverbs 29:11)

Jesus004

In just a few short years we have become the E Generation; E-mailing, E-filing, E-meetings, E-tickets, just to name a few. Have you ever stopped to consider E-motions? Emotions are simply energy (E) in motion, and they have the propensity to take us for one wild ride if we let them.

By God’s design we were created with intrinsic emotions, but how we manage them can be the difference between peace and panic. Our feelings go up and down with great velocity. On any given day we can vacillate between joy-filled excitements to finding ourselves sinking into a dark ocean of fear and depression. The Lord God designed us with emotions so that we could relate to each other and, more importantly, relate to Him. God, however, desires that we keep our emotions in check. Giving our emotions free reign can worsen an already volatile situation or circumstance, thereby tempting us to act in ways contrary to faith. Choosing to respond in a Christ-demonstrated manner can oftentimes be a challenge, because it is contrary to what we feel. At times like these we need to remember that we walk by faith, not by feelings.

Newton’s law of motion tells us that an object either remains at rest, or continues to move at a constant velocity, unless acted upon by a force. When we are resting in the Lord, we remain at rest. When we are running around in a panic, we remain in that whirlwind of swirling emotion. The difference between the two is the changing force. When we rely on Jesus we can remain peacefully at rest. When we take our eyes off Jesus (our changing force), we remain in the turbulent fluctuation of our unreliable emotions.

You may have good reasons to be caught up in the emotion of a situation, but you have even greater reasons to remain confident when life seems overwhelming and out-of-control; and here’s why:

1) You have an Ally in Jesus Christ: “Do not be afraid of them; the Lord your God himself will fight for you.” (Deut 3:22)

2) Your Lord goes with you: “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” (Deut 31:6)

3) The battle is the Lord’s: “The horse is made ready for the day of battle, but victory rests with the LORD.” (Proverbs 21:31)

You will never be able to solve all of life’s problems, heal every hurt or change certain circumstances, and that is okay. Your restlessness and fretting will change nothing (Luke 12:25). Being anxious takes your focus off the Lord and places it upon self and circumstance. The Lord reminds us to be anxious for nothing. (Phil 4:6). Remember, when your emotions start to run wild, take a step back, stay calm and give God time to work.

Prayer Heavenly Father  thank You for creating me with emotions

and designing me to be able to have a close, personal relationship with You.

Teach me to rest in You, trust in Your providence and place my emotions in Your hand.

I choose to rest in You, by the power of Jesus Christ, my Force and my Father, Amen

Especially when you publish comments from my talented old colleagues, like Jim Bell & Mike Marshal, who worked with me at the radio station I built & managed, KMSC across the street from NASA’s Manned Spacecraft Center, now JSC. on the outskirts of Houston. Our interactions with the space officials, flight controllers, astronauts & their families as steps were being made to reach the moon…were awesome, and truly unforgettable! As was Col. John “Shorty” Powers, former NASA head of Public Affairs, who eventually joined me at the microphone to tell the world about those advances via United Press International Radio Network, plus my own gigs on the USIA’s Voice of America. Prior to that, while earning a Radio/TV degree from UT, I had worked in Austin at KUT-FM, KAZZ-FM, KTBC Radio & TV doing gigs with the late, great Cactus Prior.

He didn’t have anything at the time, but he called me a couple of months later after I had started a job as manager of Home Entertainment’s store in Memorial. He offered me all night which I didn’t want but he promised me it would only be till a daytime shift opened. I started in the summer of 74. About three daytime shifts opened and every time Bill told me he just had to give it to a new guy but I would definitely get the next one. When he left in June of 76, I quit, the last full time job I had in radio.

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

Easter  Is Approaching Are We Ready ?

 I will rejoice greatly in the Lord, my soul will  exult in my God;

For He has wrapped me with a robe of righteousness   – Isaih 61:10 

For You are my lamp, O Lord;

The Lord shall enlighten my darkness.  – 2 Samuel 22:29

 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.
