If you're like us, you don't need to be reminded that Thanksgiving is coming up. But this November 28th, we still want to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving! We hope it is full of good food and family time, and most importantly, a heart of thanks to God for His many blessings in your life. We are so thankful for each of our faithful listeners!

From The Manager’s Desk

David Andrews November is the month we focus on giving thanks.  And sometimes giving thanks is one of the hardest things in life to do.   Let’s face it; there are those times in our lives, when the last thing we want to do is be “thankful.”  But if we add thanksgiving to our spiritual tool-bag, we have a powerful tool for both our own lives and usefulness for the Kingdom of God.  Harry Ironside said,

“We would worry less if we praised more.  Thanksgiving is the enemy of discontent and dissatisfaction.”

Thanksgiving both honors God, and transforms the giver.  And let’s face it, sometimes thanks has to be exercised in the spirit of discipline and bravery.  For some of us, we might enjoy this as a spiritual gift-- for the rest of us, it may have to be a willful process…especially when everything seems to be melting down around you. 

I know a number of listeners who have gone through some serious meltdowns this year. I so feel their pain. I’ve mentioned in previous e-news features that 2019 has been a pretty rough year at the Andrews household, starting out in January with almost losing our 2 year old daughter Ellie to the onset of Type 1 Childhood Diabetes.  And the rest of the year has since operated under the “if it can go wrong, it will go wrong” principle…I can say without a doubt that I have never experienced anything like it. 

BUT even in the hardest of times, God is at work.  My wife and I have been recently struck with all that God is also doing through this year. Ellie is alive (I’m planning an update for you soon), we moved to a safer neighborhood, we have a newborn baby whom God has been healing from another medical issue, God has fully provided for the many bills and expenses that have come our way this year, and we have learned so much.  I can’t tell you how much thinking about all of that encouraged our hearts that He is still there, still cares, and is still working in our lives.  That night at the dinner table, we gave thanks.

Sometimes…when life gets rough and it’s way easier to make a list of the things that go wrong…it’s a good idea to force a look past the cracks to find the things that are going right.  Actually, it’s almost therapeutic.  And like most things, it all starts in our thought life.

“Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things….and the God of peace will be with you.” –Philippians 4:8-9
Here’s to looking past the cracks, and seeing what God is doing!

God bless,

Dave Andrews
KJOL Station Manager


Kurt's Music News Songwriter of the Year

KurtBart Millard was named the Songwriter Of The Year at the Dove Awards last week.  Millard has written 16 number one songs with MercyMe, the most famous being “I Can Only Imagine,” which enjoyed a revival of sorts with the release of “I Can Only Imagine” (the movie) last year.  It became one of the highest grossing Christian movies of all time.
The newest song from MercyMe is “Almost Home.”  Like “Imagine” it strikes a hopeful tone of looking forward to our heavenly rest and reward:
I know that the cross has brought heaven to us
But make no mistake there’s still more to come
We are almost home
Brother it won’t be long
Soon all your burdens will be gone
Michael W. Smith records “Way Maker”
Nigerian worship leader Sinach (actual name: Osinachi Kalu Joseph) is known globally for her music and songwriting, including the anthem “Way Maker.”  This year “Way Maker” exceeded 100 million views on YouTube (it’s now 130 million).
Michael W. Smith has recorded a powerful version of “Way Maker” with harmonies by Vanessa Campagna (“campaign-ya”), a Nashville composer and vocalist, and Nashville worship leader Madelyn Berry.
