When You feel Out of Control

When You feel Out of Control

Last week I was worried about Michelle, my wife. She was in Orlando, Florida with Hurricane Erma targeting her and about 800 to a thousand people in the music and Radio Industry.

I know I needed to Trust God with her wellbeing. I found out for the first time in my life, my loved one was out of reach, not safe. I couldn’t help her. She was totally in God hands.

It’s easy to say you’re going to do trust God, but saying it and living it are two different things. At one point, I literally felt helpless.

Have you ever felt like you were in a similar situation? Circumstances dictated where you were and did not allow you to help or be in control.

Maybe you’ve had a similar experience, where circumstances made you feel out of control. Call, or go on line at kswp.org/prayer or kswp.org/praise and share you Story and the outcome.

God is always so good to me! As I sought His Word, He filled me with a peace… it passed all human understanding. There was no earthly reason for me to calm down, yet, I did.

He gave me this, “And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7 (NIV)

Michelle flew home safe the next day (Saturday)!

Happy Birthday KSWP, 30 Years!

Happy Birthday KSWP, 30 Years!

0824sec-30years-birthday-kswp30 years ago KSWP held its first Shareathon. Things were much different back then. Music was on records and programs were on cassette tapes.

30 YEARS ago at KSWP

This is what it look like in 1985 at KSWP.

The equipment needs would have been things like a new turntable or an office chair. The station broadcast with only 383 watts and operated 18 ½ hours a day.

And the budget? It was less than $4,000. Now it takes $71,000 to operate the ministry each month!

30 years later the needs have increased as turntables and cart machines gave way to computers, satellite, and the Internet.

And instead of 1 Christian radio station, you have a choice between 2 – both on the air 24/7 and heard not only on a radio but also pc’s, ipads, iphones, and android devices.

30 years have changed a lot of things at KSWP… including in 1998 KSWP welcoming sister station KAVX on the air with Teaching, Talk and Worship music. Plans are in place to expand to other Christian formats for reaching more people for Christ!

Your involvement in what the ministry does! There are hundreds of people, just like you, involved in praying, volunteering, listening, supporting and playing with us everyday!

From the first day KSWP signed on prayer plays a vital role in everyday at KSWP. PrayerWorks revitalizes thousands of you each year. “Connecting You to a Real and Loving God.” It’s more than a catchy phrase, it’s the mission at KSWP & KAVX. The Ministry is committed to praying for you & your family’s needs! The PrayerWorks Krew look forward to reading your post on the “Stories” page that your prayers were answered!

KSWP plays Contemporary Christian Music for Your Family 24 hours a day, everyday of the year! You can listen at 90.9 on your radio dial, online at kswp.org or via the KSWP app!

We look forward to many more years of ministry and great stories of what God has done in your life through KSWP! Tell your story at PrayerWorks now!
