My Visit to Phil’s Music Room

October 31st, 2016 No comments

Kristi and Phil

Over the weekend, my family and I took Radio Friend Phil up on a longstanding invitation to visit his music room in his home.  This special space is the product of decades of vinyl collecting and meticulous audio gear curating.  He even has a sofa set up at the exact sweet spot for the listener to clearly hear every detail the recording artist intended.  The results are amazing!  Phil sat us down with a mug of his favorite hot tea and played a variety of records for us: Franz Schubert, Herbie Hancock, Billie Holiday, Credence Clearwater Revival, Pat Metheny and The Beatles.  We fell in love all over again with familiar songs like “Here Comes The Sun” because we heard parts we never heard before…all because of how well Radio Friend Phil presented the music.

It got me thinking about how I present things.  Am I taking great care of the material like Phil cares for his vinyl?  Do I make sure that I set up my words as well as Phil sets up his gear?  And do I make sure that my listener is as comfortable and well-positioned to hear the heart of what I’m saying like Phil does with that comfy sofa and hot tea?

Ephesians 5 talks a lot about living intentionally and graciously as we interact with others.  I love the phrase in verse 15 that say “Be very careful, then, how you live.”  It’s something that comes to my mind a lot.  God has been so very good to us!  I want to honor and love Him by cheerfully choosing to be very careful how I live to bring Him glory. Verse 2 gets to the heart of it, “And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us, and has given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling fragrance.”

The Non-Stop Worship Block

April 26th, 2016 No comments

NIK – I invite you to join me, Nik at Night M-TH at 10:37, for The NON-STOP WORSHIP BLOCK. It’s an opportunity, weeknights Monday through Thursday, to reset your day.

I am blessed to know lyrics have been poured over by the God pursuing men and women we play here at WJTL so just the right message has the opportunity to soak into our soul.

You’ll hear the Word of God, and a theme supporting surrender–not only of the day, but also a surrender of our hurts and hang-ups over to our Savior!   I invite you to bring your heart to the table and let your mind rest as we settle into some prayers in melody– inspired by and offered back to our God, Most High!

Each night features a three song set where you’ll find a progression: a starting point of our surrender which grows lyrically to a point of praise and thankfulness. We conclude each Worship block with an encouraging word from:

I encourage you to go to that site at any time for assistance in growing your faith.  God longs that we desire to grow in our faith and in His provision, His healing, His Mercy, and His Blessing!

The Monday block featured Mac Powell “By His Wounds” f/ Steven Curtis Chapman and Mark Hall, Matt Maher “Abide With Me” and New Life Worship “Bless The Lord.”  And Billy Graham talked about the disciples, although young, willing of heart to do God’s will.  Our focus was from Micah 6:8.

Pictured on WJTL’s facebook page Non-Stop Worship Block: Mac Powell with Steven Curtis Chapman (recently together on the SCC 3D Tour), Matt Maher w/ Nik at the recent WJTL concert in York, New Life Worship, and Billy Graham].

Thanks for joining me to hear the Non-Stop Worship Block M-Th at 10:37 PM.

“Rock and Hard Place” Obedience

March 24th, 2016 No comments

NIK – As I played the song,* I was thinking is it “my joy to say ‘Your will Your way.  Always’” to Jesus?  Honestly, joy seems like a strong word next to “rock and hard place” obedience.  Then I remembered a word Jesus said to his three closest friends, followed by a prayer Jesus said to His father (a question or maybe a different way), followed by full and vital surrender, agreement with His father.  This is true worship that has forever changed life; changed my life.

Matt 26:37-42 says it best.  I marked it in my Bible for you, and it’s posted on facebook.

*visit the WJTL facebook page for song info from the Non-Stop Worship Block (M-Th at 10:37) with your host Nik at Night.

Mud Pies in Green Pastures

March 16th, 2016 No comments
NIK – Was I six or seven years old making mud pies that night? (I was ready to start a catering business. So many mud pies, so little time.) While I played, there was one rule: “Be in before dark.” In a muddy and green pasture in rural Montana, there was only one thing to determine “that” time; no interference, no street lights, no car lights, simply the setting sun. That night, I came to realize darkness creeps up, stealing a little light at first, then a little more, until suddenly darkness shadows the whole landscape.
Tonight’s non-stop worship block featured songs that spoke of the LIGHT OF GOD in our lives with words like: “Light that pierced the dark,” “light broke in coming in like a song…like a Son.” That light is a gift of God and a warm assurance of His presence in our life. * If your relationship with God is currently in a holding pattern or maybe you’ve even said, I pray sometimes, or I’ll get my life together before things get bad. Know this: darkness sets in subtly, a little at a time, and it’s scary to find yourself in the middle a dark field, confused and running for home. Protect the light within you. It’s an indwelling miracle from our beautiful and gracious Savior who longs to bathe His children in the light of His mercy and grace.

Non-Stop Worship Block Nightly with Nik

March 2nd, 2016 No comments

NIK – Visit WJTLs Facebook page to see a new video posted of His Little Feet Children’s Choir; the choir is featured in the new song from Audio Adrenaline “Sound of the Saints.”  The Non-Stop Worship Block:  Each evening we feature a three song set, a theme that progresses from song one thru song three and closes with an inspiring audio quote from Billy Graham.  We incorporate “Reset” verses in between the songs that draw us further into the theme of the evening.  I’d love you to join me for a time to reset perspectives and pursue God in a greater way.  You can always catch up on the theme at WJTL’s Facebook page or spend time looking over the incorporated Bible verses.  The Non-Stop Worship Block with Nik at Night is featured every Monday through Thursday at 10:37.
