HAPPY NEW YEAR!! 25 years ago tonight Pastor Dean Bryant and Pastor Neil Head prayed over our ministry. We dedicated KPNR to the Lord. So thankful to still have the opportunity to spread the Gospel singing the greatest music in the world!! We have had many ups and downs but it has been worth every mile that we have traveled. Looking forward to many more years of service to the Lord!!:) #PrayNow
Without Jesus, we have a hopeless end. With Jesus, we have an endless hope!
Whatever it is that you're fighting, realize that it's there. Don't deny it. Deal with it. Don't embrace the issue, but embrace the journey of realizing the truth to change it. If it's a lying tongue, a past abortion, homosexuality, fornication, the wrong relationship, weight loss, moving, talking to a loved one that may have neglected you, lacking self discipline, fears of success, fears of failure, etc. there are so many things that keep us from moving forward. Deal with it. Sometimes finding an authentic friend who is honest with themselves, and will being honest with us, is the first step to healing, being stronger, or detoxing. I just don't think God has put us here to live stagnant lives. After all, everything that He has created has the growing ability. Everything on earth is capable of growing and evolving into something beautiful; and I believe that you're capable of being that beautiful Man or Woman. There are a lot of things that I've had to deal with privately. Thank God, He gave me so many chances. But the healing tool that God used was sending me a listening ear and someone to relate to. Don't do it alone. Get a friend who you can discuss your urges with. Have someone that will hold you accountable. Begin to heal today...
It's not what you do every now and then, but what you do everyday, that changes everything.

Michael W. Smith:
Oh, heaven come down tonight

Break every stronghold
Shatter every wall so we can see
Heaven come down tonight
