Promise of Hope-Rest For Our Soul

john : March 24, 2017 4:18 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Promise of Hope is based on Exodus 33:14.

Being a leader of a group of people can be a lonely place, especially when facing a difficult decision. Moses led Israel through a desert experience, and sometimes, his own people rebelled against his leadership. Where would Moses turn for guidance?

One day he had a conversation with God. He prayed, “If you are pleased with me, teach me your ways, so I may know you and continue to find favor with you. Remember that this nation is your people.”

The LORD replied to Moses’ prayer, saying, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”

That is exactly what Moses needed to hear, and Jesus said something similar to us in Matthew 11:28. He said, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”

Rest for the soul is a promise of hope for those who follow Jesus in the Year of Trust.

Yulissa Likes Chickens and is Learning About Jesus

stacey : March 21, 2017 4:31 pm : Stacey Gagne, Staff Pages

As we have prepared for our 27 Hours of Compassion, I found myself going through letters and photos from the little girls that I sponsor.  Yulissa is the little girl that I sponsor from Guatemala.  In some of her letters to me she has shared:

  • prayer requests for her family
  • she likes the story of creation
  • she loves to sing
  • she loves to color and paint
  • she has sent hugs
  • she has received Jesus as her Savior
  • she is learning to pray
  • she wants to be as obedient as Mary the Mother of Jesus

In her most recent letter, Yulissa mentioned that her favorite pets are her cat and chickens.  It’s evident in her artwork below.

I love to encourage her,  to let her know that I am praying for her and keep reminding her that Jesus loves her.

I encourage you to consider starting this kind of special relationship as an individual or a family today!  Visit where you can see all the children awaiting sponsorship and prayerfully consider who you may be able to encourage!

Looking Forward to 27 Hours of Compassion March 21 and 22

stacey : March 20, 2017 7:00 am : Stacey Gagne

At WJTL we enthusiastically support the mission of Compassion International to release children from poverty in Jesus name.  Our own staff and thousands of area listeners have experienced first-hand the impact of Compassion International through child sponsorship even visiting various projects all over the world.

In February, Fred and Lisa joined a sponsor trip and visited our most recently sponsored project GU501 in Guatemala plus spent time with their own sponsored children.     On March 21 and 22 they’ll share more about their trip, plus other local sponsors  and staff will be sharing their stories  and we’ll be giving opportunities for you to sponsor children from Guatemala, Central America and in various parts of the world.

Tune in on on March 21 and 22 for our 27 Hours of Compassion from 6am to 8pm Tuesday and 6am to 7pm Wednesday.    Visit to see photos of children awaiting sponsorship and prayerfully consider sponsoring a child.  We’ll be highlighting various profiles from this page during our on air event.

You can also check out the fantastic photos from Fred and Lisa’s recent trip to Guatemala at our Flickr page.

Praise & Worship Show Playlist

kristi : March 19, 2017 6:00 am : Kristi Leigh, music, Staff Pages

A spring time prayer by Courtney White: 

“Help me Lord to live in the season of Spring.

Guide me as I plant seeds, pull weeds, 

and tend the positive growth in my life

so all that is left is what you have planted.

Guide me into your will as I follow your path

and make the first step toward the new life you promise me every morning.

Focus On God-His Goodness

john : March 17, 2017 3:50 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Trust, today’s Focus on God examines His goodness.

According to Acts 10:38, with the Holy Spirit and power, Jesus was anointed to do good and heal all who were under the power of the devil, because God was with him.

In his book, The Practice of Godliness, author Jerry Bridges noted that goodness involves deliberate deeds that are helpful to others. While the Bible uses the word “Good” to refer to what is upright, honorable, and noble concerning moral character, it also uses it to describe actions that are beneficial to others.

When we examine the life of Jesus, we see that His actions were upright and helpful to others. His good deeds flowed out of His good character. He came with the power to heal our brokenness, transform our hearts into His likeness, deliver us from evil, and save us from our sins.

The goodness of God is a reason to trust in God for today and forever.
