Rob Patz: You can’t get there from here

2018 June SGNScoops Publisher’s Point by Rob Patz

Rob Patz: You can’t get there from here

2018 June SGNScoops Publisher’s Point by Rob Patz

In the world we live in, everyone has GPS on their phone, so you can always find your way. However, I’m sure you also have heard the statement… “you can’t get there from here.”


I think I have probably heard that statement 100 times as I’ve traveled over the years and been blessed with the opportunity to work in Christian ministry. There are many times I’ve stopped at a gas station or store and asked how do I get to such and such town, and on many occasions I’ve heard that phrase.

I heard it recently and it made me start to think about our lives and how we live. How many of us have heard that we can’t get to where we need to go from where we are. How many of us in our life have allowed the roadblocks – whether real or imagined – to block our path? How many times have you said in your own head, “I can’t get there from here?”

Rob Patz

As I look at my life, and as I come up to a significant birthday in a few months, if you would’ve asked me years ago if this is where I would be at this point in my life, I would’ve definitely said no. I’m one of those people that plans. I have ideas and goals, I make lists every day and I get excited about checking off things from my list when I’ve been able to accomplish things. This was not really where I planned to be.

 

That being said, we can create a plan but that isn’t always what God wants for us. God has a plan for you and for me and sometimes his plan is much different than what we think. I know, for me personally, that I have wondered how I would get to where I truly believe God wants me, from where I am at the moment. If we lean on our own understanding, we think we are never going to be able to accomplish the things that we believe God has for us to do.

Don’t misunderstand, I marvel at where God has taken me so far. He’s allowed me the opportunity to do the things that I have desired, and I am humbled by those things he has allowed me to do. However, being a person of lists and goals, I have not always done everything personally and in business that I wanted to do. In fact, there are times where I have missed the mark completely.

Recently, I was in the St. Louis airport and in my head I was thinking of all the things that I needed to accomplish. Some of those things seemed impossible at the time. There were things in my near future that I felt I couldn’t handle on my own.

Then I remembered the song, “God will make a way, when there seems to be no way…He works in ways we cannot see, He will make a way for me…He will be my guide, hold me closely to His side. With love and strength for each new day, He will make a way…” (God Will Make A Way lyrics by Don Moen © Capitol Christian Music Group)

 

In the moment of an almost meltdown, I began to sing that song quietly to myself in the airport. I found comfort in the words of the song and I realized again that even when our natural man says you can’t get there from here, God says, “I will clear a way for you.”


I don’t know where you are today, I don’t know what things have not been fulfilled in your life, I don’t know what goals you haven’t seen come to fruition. But let me tell you that no matter where you are, God can make a way to where you need to be. So don’t let anyone ever tell you that you can’t get there from here.


Hey, I would love to see you in Vernon, Alabama, in September for an awesome weekend of gospel music. Vernon is an event I look forward to every year and I can’t wait for this year. Please make plans to join me and many great artists in Vernon, Alabama, September 7-8, at the Vernon City Auditorium.


Until next month, this is the Publisher’s Point for June 2018.

Nashville, TN  – StowTown Records recording artist Jonathan Taylor of The Taylors has announced his engagement to Lynsey Vicars. The two are planning a small wedding next April in Tennessee.

Jonathan and Lynsey met after a Taylors concert in Bristol, VA.  “God has finally sent me the woman I’ve been waiting for my entire life,” Jonathan shares. “I knew at the first moment I saw her that there was something special about Lynsey. The more that I’ve had the chance to know her and see her heart, the more I know that she’s the woman that God has created for me. I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with Lynsey – she’s everything I’ve ever prayed for!”

Jonathan is busy touring with his brother and sister following the recent release of their new project, Faithful Again. Their summer and fall tour schedule is packed with dates all across the U.S. Faithful Again is distributed by Sony/Provident Distribution and available worldwide at your local retail store and online.

Larnelle Harris: The notes that shaped his life

Written by Staff on June 12, 2018 – 8:11 am -

Larnelle Harris

Larnelle Harris

Larnelle Harris has a different perspective now than he once did.

“As I’ve gotten older … I saw a picture in a magazine,” Harris shares. “It was a picture of a turtle on a fence post. When I first saw it, I didn’t think much about it. Then, I started to think about the people in Danville, Ky., and how they’ve spoke things into my life. Then, when I saw it again, I started thinking about it. The turtle doesn’t get on the fence post on his own. I started thinking about the people over the years and those who are still speaking, people who spoke a dream into my heart as a little kid. I didn’t see it as a kid. As I got older, I began to see that.”

 

Now, Harris is speaking … well, he’s letting his words do the talking anyway.

 

He released his first book on Feb. 6, “Shaped Notes: How Ordinary People with Extraordinary Gifts Influenced My Life and Career.” He wrote the book along with Christine Schaub.

 

“People who are close to me, who should be in the book, have talked about that for years,” Harris says of writing a book. “What am I going to tell them? ‘My name is Larnelle Harris. I grew up in Danville, Kent. My parents’ names were’ … there’s nothing to see here.

 

“I was at the Governor’s Mansion (in Frankfort, Kent.). I had been given an award. One of the ladies from Danville said, ‘Whatcha got coming up?’ I said, ‘I’m thinking about writing a book.’

 

Larnelle HarrisShe said, ‘You haven’t lived long enough to write a book.’ I said, ‘I know, but I want to take this opportunity to just say thank you to them, to those people who have spoke into my life.’”

One of those individuals who spoke into his life came along early on.

“Mrs. Georgia Donehy … Mrs. Georgie played the piano and organ for the church choir,” Harris explains. “She taught piano lessons to every kid in town, whether they wanted them or not. I didn’t want them at first.

“She found out there was a little hidden boy soprano in here, and she started taking me around different places to sing. I did a concert in our church when I was nine years old, and she played the piano. She didn’t want anything. Then, she passed on, and somebody else came along. It’s a wonderful exercise for everybody. We’ve all had those people.”

Larnelle summarizes the purpose of the book in two words.

Larnelle Harris“There are two little words we don’t use enough,” Harris points out. “It seems like as we go up in generation, we use it less and less. Thank you … that’s what it’s about.

“Mrs. Georgie used to get on my last nerve. She said to my mom one time, ‘you should not let Larnelle play any sports out in the dust, because the dust will hurt his voice.’ But, now, I hope that every town, city, parish has a Mrs. Georgie in it.”

Harris attempts to honor Mrs. Georgie during his concerts.

“I do a package of songs in concert to Mrs. Georgie,” Harris notes. “I wanted to do some songs that I did in that first concert with Mrs. Georgie in the First Baptist Church in Danville, Ky.

“This book is very little about Larnelle, but it is about the process of God putting people in your life, to take you to the next plateau. It’s about those people who guide you who don’t want a thing. Mrs. Georgie had no idea what the future would be for me.”
