Weekend Word by Vonda Armstrong

Written by scoopsnews on April 13, 2019 – 5:19 am -

Luke 15:4-5 King James Version (KJV)

What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it?

When I was a young girl growing up in Heflin, Alabama, I remember hearing many bible stories in Sunday School.

Jesus taught in stories or parables. Have you ever wondered why? I have, so I looked for the answer and found it.   A parable is basically an earthly story with a heavenly meaning. When Jesus started telling parables to the people, His disciples asked the obvious question, “Why do You speak to them in parables?” (Matthew 13:10)

Jesus Answered!

Because it has been given to you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given . And in them the prophecy of Isaiah is fulfilled, which says: ‘Hearing you will hear and shall not understand, and seeing you will see and not perceive, for the heart of this people has grown dull. Their ears are hard of hearing, and their eyes they have closed, lest they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, lest they should understand with their heart and turn, so that I should heal them’ (Matthew 13:11,14,15)

The parable of The Lost Sheep is a wonderful story told by Jesus to illustrate the love and compassion that God has for those who are His.

The parable is found in the Gospels of Matthew and Luke, and is in response to Jesus being criticized and attacked by the religious leaders for “eating with sinners”. I love the part when Jesus stops the crowd and begins to tell a story of how a shepherd left his flock of 99 sheep to go find one lost sheep. 

This parable displays a beautiful meaning of God seeking out the  sinner who is lost  and rejoicing when they are found. We serve a Good Shepherd whose heart is for us to be found, rescued, and renewed.

I am so thankful He found me! Has He found you?

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! You know I always like to leave you with a song so I couldn’t find one more appropriate than the Crabb Family singing “Shephard ‘s Call.”

Until next week, Jesus loves you and so do I!

The Kingsmen’s Victory Shout shares encouragement for the journey to Heaven

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on April 12, 2019 – 9:33 am -

The Kingsmen’s Victory Shout shares encouragement for the journey to Heaven

The Kingsmen’s Victory Shout shares encouragement for the journey to Heaven

Arden, North Carolina  — The Kingsmen are bringing their signature sound to a collection of songs from some of today’s best writers on Victory Shout, which shares messages for daily life about being faithful in the journey to Heaven. The album will be available June 7 from Horizon Records.

Victory Shout begins on a joyful note with that theme in “Running To Win,” an upbeat song featuring baritone singer Alan Kendall, about continuing to press toward finishing life well. It’s followed by “Just Climb,” a slower tune of encouragement to trust in God and have faith He’ll move mountains in His own time.

The Kingsmen then sing “I’ve Ever Been Glad,” a jubilant quartet song with bass singer Ray Reese taking the lead. Written by Regina Walden, who wrote the group’s recent #1 chart song “Oh Yes I Am,” this song is a true Southern Gospel quartet tune where almost every member has a step-out part on the chorus with a drive that will bring the crowd to their feet.

With a message of hope, encouragement and triumph for Christians, “Victory Shout,” the album’s title track and first single, which is moving quickly up the national charts, reminds that with steadfast belief in God, our needs will be met in His timing. Tenor Chris Jenkins sings:

“Can you feel it the song that is rising
Then you can’t help but let it out
If you’re trusting in faith
Even now while you wait
Lift up a victory shout”

These lyrics from the chorus of the song are portrayed in the arrangement and bring the listener to a moment where you are completely consumed in the message of overcoming the circumstances of life, even when you don’t know what the final outcome will be.

The album continues with Biblical stories in the upbeat “Dear John,” about John the Revelator featuring lead singer Chris Bryant; a re-recording of “Prodigal Son,” a Kingsmen classic written by Larry Gatlin of the Gatlin Brothers’ fame that tells the traditional story of returning home and the power of forgiveness; and in “King of Kings,” which paints a picture of the grandeur of Christ through His time on Earth.

Other songs include the moving “It Still Changes Me” about how the Bible’s message continues to have an impact even as life evolves and “You’ll Move Mountains For Me,” a song about trusting that God will always go above and beyond.

The album closes with “That’s Where You’ll Find Me,” a power ballad featuring Bryant describing the meeting place at Christ’s throne in Heaven. With these songs of worship and praise, The Kingsmen are continuing their far-reaching ministry and legacy.

“I am so excited about this new recording Victory Shout! From start to finish it brings the classic Kingsmen sound to a collection of brand new songs written by some of today’s best writers,” says Bryant. “These songs will bring messages of hope and encouragement to listeners while keeping us all looking forward to what God is going to do! I am honored to be a part of this album and cannot wait to share it with everyone.”

New Music Video Reveals Serious Side of Comedian Tim Lovelace

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on April 11, 2019 – 8:20 am -

New Music Video Reveals Serious Side of Comedian Tim Lovelace

New Music Video Reveals Serious Side of Comedian Tim Lovelace

Nashville, TN StowTown Records is thrilled to announce the release of the highly anticipated music video from Tim Lovelace, “Composer of My Life.”

Known widely as a comedian, this song reveals the serious side of Tim. He shares, “This song actually tells the story of my own life. I’d had this song idea and title for quite a while, and I loved co-writing it with longtime friend Joel Lindsey and Producer Wayne Haun. I’m overjoyed that StowTown Records caught the vision for this recording, as well as the video. More importantly, my prayer is that this song will touch hearts and encourage people to meet the One who is composing their life.”
Producer and co-writer Wayne Haun says, “I see myself in this video. It’s very personal to me. But I think anyone who views it will somehow be swept back in time to a beautiful moment.”
Recorded by Midtown Motion Productions in Nashville, TN, “Composer of My Life” features seven-year-old Otto Cunningham, son of Jef and Erika Cunningham (Provident Distribution Retail Sales and Marketing Coordinator), who plays Tim as a boy. Otto’s dog, Shadow, also makes a cameo appearance. Tim adds, “Young Otto was so wonderful to work with. Such a sweet young man and so full of life. My relatives have all been amazed at how much he looks like me as a child.”
“Composer of My Life” is the newest single from Lovelace and is on his current CD and DVD, Living in a Coffee World. Both are distributed worldwide exclusively by Sony/Provident. You can watch the new video on Tim’s YouTube channel HERE.

Special Edition of “Strictly Southern With Vonda Armstrong” – With Guests , The Hyssongs… Tune in Wednesday 4-10-19

Written by scoopsnews on April 9, 2019 – 7:08 pm -

Join Vonda Armstrong tomorrow, April 10th from 12:00 Noon- 1:oo Pm (CST) for a “special Interview” with The Hyssongs.

The Hyssongs current radio single, “Choose Life” is making a strong statement at radio stations nationwide.

The Hyssongs

The Hyssongs

“Choose Life has three verses that each speak to current events,” Hyssong explains. “The first verse deals with the hot topic of abortion. More recently it is being suggested that a mother can have a child, and after the baby is born the mother and doctor will discuss whether to keep the child or not. This is not a cultural or political issue, it is a biblical issue. The song strongly states, ‘Choose Life.'”

Richard continues, “The second verse deals with the subject of suicide. All of us probably have known people who have contemplated or have even take their own lives. Many are hopeless, yet we know the One who gives us hope. Again, we ‘Choose Life.'”

“The third verse is about accepting or rejecting the Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior. We again, ‘Choose Life’ and accept Christ,” concludes Richard.

This song is of extreme personal importance to the Hyssongs. Richard tells us why the song is such an extension of their lives.

“Our daughter was born over ten years ago. She was born with twenty-two tumors in and around her heart. She also had a massive amount of brain tumors a well. After she was born, the doctor said that she would most likely not survive, and if she did, she would never walk or talk. Many would have suggested that it would have been good to abort her, but we chose life! Today she is perfectly normal,” he exalts.

The group chose this song as their radio single because of its timely message.

You can tune in to the show via Facebook live , listen at 91.7 FM, or stream at www.wpilfm.com.

Kristina Cornell joins elite writing staff of SGNScoops

Written by Staff on April 9, 2019 – 3:58 pm -

Kristina Cornell

Kristina Cornell

SGNScoops Magazine and Website has several great writers on staff, from those who interview artists to create feature articles, to those who dig deeply into their faith and creativity to craft opinion pieces that we call “devotionals.”

Joining the team is our new devotional writer, Kristina Cornell. Starting as a vocalist with “Victory Express,” Kristina developed into a sought-after songwriter, lending her talents to the fields of Christian and Country music. She has now come full circle, using her talents solely for the Lord.

Kristina is a prolific writer and has a lot to share about her life, her faith, and her Lord.

Let’s get to know Kristina a little better!

What is your first musical memory?
I was four years old, I was cutting out Valentines with my mom. She was singing, like always, and she began to sing “Oh How I Love Jesus.” I was singing along with her, “because He first loved me;” I continued into a verse that she had not heard, “First, He died on the cross for me, first, He died on the cross for me, first He died on the cross for me, but now He’s living in me.” My mom asked where I learned that verse. I told her, “I made it up.” She hugged me so tightly, I knew it must have been a good thing based on her reaction. I continued to write as if it were as involuntary as breathing.

When did you begin singing professionally? Tell us about this point in your life.
I was 14 when my family began to travel about 150-200 dates per year. My family continues that ministry, Victory Express. We sang on the Jubilee At Sea cruises with Maurice Templeton’s, “Templeton Tours”. We attended the NQC annually singing in various showcases. We sang in hundreds of fairs and festivals. But my favorite was when we sang in churches that we knew did not get a lot of Gospel Music. I LOVED the tent revivals. My father is an evangelist, so he would preach also. Those were fundamentals in my life in every facet. I learned things about business that I would utilize my entire adult life. I learned that like it or not, there is a political side. I learned sound and recording, I grew tremendously as a songwriter and vocalist. The greatest lesson that I learned was how to allow the Holy Spirit to have His way in every service. I learned that it is no longer I that lives, but Christ who lives in me.

When and why did you shift to country music?
I have always had such a passion for songwriting. My family moved to Nashville when I was 22. I was determined to become a successful writer. I had already written with Ronny Hinson, became a charter member of the Southern Gospel Songwriters’ Association (thanks to Phil Cross), (and) I believed it was my destiny. And write I did. I was signed to Daywind Publishing by Wayne Haun (when he started as head of publishing) within three months of my moving to town. After I left Daywind, I continued writing over the next several years with some amazing talents and it was not always gospel music. I wrote with Billy Dean and Jimmy Lee Sloas, some phenomenal talents. I was writing with Dave Gibson and he asked if I would sing a demo for him because he wanted to pitch it when he took the stuff that we had written to the labels. That song was “Little Red Balloon.” When Mike Borchetta heard it, he signed me to a country deal without even meeting me in person. He was into the vocals and the song, and wanted to release that song to country radio as soon as possible. So, we recorded that song first and while they shipped it to radio we recorded the other nine songs, six of which I co-wrote with some of the greatest writers. I made a deal with Mike that my music would not step over any of the boundaries of my beliefs. I refused to sing about things that I would not do. “Little Red Balloon” went on to chart in the top 40 and the video was nominated as GAC’s video of the year. It also crossed over into gospel markets.

Tell us about your faith. When did you first begin to believe in Jesus? How has your faith grown throughout your life?
I was saved at a tent revival when I was four. I will NEVER forget that night. The evangelist, Brian Ruud, was from Canada and he was so charismatic about the Lord. It was exciting! I wanted whatever he had. His music team had a real B3 that they carried with them. I remember the way that Leslie cabinet looked (it was huge) and the sound was even bigger! The music was not just good but authentic. These people clearly believed in what they sang and preached. We were there that night till after midnight, as they took time to pray with every single person. I got my first little Bible from Brian Ruud, it was one of those little New Testament versions. Throughout grade school, I would take that Bible with me and tell the kids at the playground about Jesus. The school called home many days trying to explain to my parent that I could not do that. Finally, in the sixth grade, I was taken from the public school system and began Christian schooling. I learned so much about the Lord through the next six years. I had teachings about Jesus at home and at school. It was great! I thank God for the foundation that was laid in my life. My parents sacrificed for my Christian education, and I cannot thank them enough. As I went into adulthood, even still today, those foundational truths remain in my heart. I admit, after a really heinous trauma in my life, I walked away from the Lord. I say it that way because I literally was so angry with Him that I told Him that I was walking away from Him. The Psalmist, David said it best when he said that he had hidden the word of the Lord in his heart, that he might not sin against God. The words that were written on my heart did not leave, no matter how far I tried to walk. Ultimately, I realized just like every other believer, that my only hope is in Jesus. Nothing fills or fixes but Him. My journey has been tough so far, but in my weakness, He is my strength, my ever-present help in times of trouble.

Kristina Cornell

Kristina Cornell

What made you desire to write about faith?
I made a commitment to the Lord that if He would allow me to continue to write, and if I would ever have an opportunity to sing to anyone again, I will only write and sing Christian music. It is a personal decision. I do not think there is anything wrong with writing and singing other genres, as long as it does not condone sin. For me, I have been delivered so many times by the hand of God that any creativity that I have I only want to give back to Him. I really have nothing else to say, as I have learned that I have nothing of significance to offer of myself. I am just like everyone else, in need of a Savior. I write from my heart, I write devotionals, stories, songs, messages, even starting on a book, and all I have to offer is Jesus and what He has done in my life!

What is your favorite scripture right now and why?
This is really hard for me because I CLING to many of them. The Lord spoke into my spirit, while I was asking to draw more closely to Him. “Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness, and all these things will be added unto you.” Matthew 6:33. Those words etched into my soul because shortly after that prayer I descended into one of the most brutal valleys of my life. Some days all I could do was cry out to God. I sought Him, I actively pursued Him. I needed His provision and protection, I needed His consolation and comfort. He added all I could ever need and so much more!

Thank you Kristina for opening your life and your heart to SGNScoops and all of our readers.

Please look for upcoming devotionals by Kristina and all of our great writers here at SGNScoops.

Please Pray For Douglas Davis

Written by scoopsnews on April 8, 2019 – 2:56 pm -

Please pray for our friend Douglas Davis.

Melinda posted this morning on Facebook:

So yesterday after church we had a very eventful afternoon. Douglas collapsed in Cracker Barrel. He was unresponsive and he was transported to UT Med CTR. Needless to say I was scared to death. God placed people right there around me at the exact moment to help me. There happened to be an “old ER/GI nurse” (she said), that was sitting next to us that immediately came to help me, another lady came out of nowhere and layed hands on Douglas and began to pray… out loud… IN CRACKER BARREL… and sweet Angel Spencer and her sister held my hands and prayed with me while EMT’s worked with Douglas. Here I was away from my family in another state… alone… but I was surrounded by people that God placed to care and help me. THANK YOU!!!! We were definitely the main attraction for the lunch crowd yesterday 🤦🏻‍♀️. Our pastor, Joe Emmert, is probably the best pastor anybody could ever have! We love you BroJoe! We are in the hospital waiting for some things to be done this morning so if you could just remember my husband when you pray. I sure would appreciate it.

 

Later, she posted:

This morning Douglas had a stress test because of his performance yesterday 😉 Well wouldn’t you know it? He failed the test🤷🏻‍♀️ They have just taken him down for a cardiac cath and we would appreciate once again if you would bathe him in prayer. We appreciate Michelle Davis for driving from Atlanta to be with us and Sandra D. Payton (their adopted Mama) for coming and supporting her children.

Douglas and Melinda Davis

Please continue to pray. We will update when we know more.

“Rooted” With Billy Huddleston

Written by scoopsnews on April 7, 2019 – 6:38 am -

Billy Huddleston

Billy Huddleston

God on Trial

“Have you considered my servant Job?”

Job 1:8

I’ve never really spent much time with Job.

Sure, over the years I’ve heard countless sermons about him and his trials: The trials of Job. These sermons have focused on his losses, his wife’s attitude, his friends, and his responses to the entire ordeal. It’s a painful story that has the ability to speak to us on deep, deep levels. But frankly, I’ve chosen to spend my bible study times in other places.

Lately, Job has been on my mind.

          Not because of all the things he went through.

          But, rather why he went through them.

Have you ever noticed that it all started because of a question that God asks?  Think about that for a minute. . .

          Satan does not have an omniscient point of view.

          He doesn’t mention Job.

          God does.

The question is pretty intriguing: “Have you considered my servant Job?”

I think the question reveals a reality that if we’re not careful we might read right past. It has changed my thinking and approach to this entire book. Too often I’ve focused on Satan in this story. But, I’m beginning to think I’ve had the wrong idea.

Have you (Satan) considered…

         Why would God ask this question?

          Obviously, He (God) had considered Job.

This is the starting point for the entire drama that unfolds in the book which bears his name. It all begins with God revealing His confidence in one man. So much confidence, in fact, that He invests His character in the character of this man.

So, as we enter into the drama that starts to unfold in Job 1, I think I need to adjust my thinking. I’ve always thought that Job was on trial. After all we refer to the book as the “trials” of Job. But. . .

          Could it be that Job isn’t on trial here?

          God is.

Satan has already failed at trying to ascend to the heights of God. So now, based upon a question that God Himself asks, he will try to bring God down to His level. If Job fails then obviously God didn’t know him like He claimed: God wouldn’t have an omniscient point of view.

The challenge is presented with a question God asks.

Intriguing it all starts here. . .

“Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, Doth Job fear God for nought?”

Job 1:9

God brought him up.

He asked the question.

In that question He reveals the confidence He has in one man: A man named Job.

Job was no ordinary man. Well, he was ordinary in many ways:

     He had normal feelings.

     He dealt with the same emotions as anyone else.

     He experienced the same longings, felt the same joy, was familiar with pain.

Yet, Job was no ordinary man. You see, he had been extraordinarily blessed:

     He was the father of seven sons and three daughters.

     Seven thousand sheep pastured his fields while three thousand camels roamed his hillside.

     He was the owner of five hundred yoke of oxen. . .

                                              . . . five hundred female donkeys. . .

                                                     . . . had a very large household. . .

     The list could go on and on.

     Extraordinarily blessed.

Job was the Donald Trump or, perhaps, the Bill Gates of his time. He had wealth beyond measure. Certainly, he was a man of means. So much so that Scripture says that Job was the greatest of all the people of the East. Pretty impressive. No ordinary man.

And, God brought him up.

He asked the question:

“Have you [Satan] considered my servant Job?”

Not only does He ask the question but in the asking He reveals the character of Job that results in the confidence He feels toward this man. Listen to the descriptors that He uses to describe Job:

     Blameless and upright. . .

          One who fears God. . .

               [One who] shuns evil. . .

                    There’s none like him on earth.

Did you catch that? God said there’s none like Job. It’s an incredible statement about Job’s character. 

It also makes a startling reality: Every other man, every other woman was not blameless or upright. That there were no others that truly feared or served God. In fact, the whole of humanity seems to be caught up in evil. The enemy was winning, he seemed to have their hearts. But, not Job.

So, God brought him up.

He asked the question:

“Have you [Satan] considered my servant Job?”

And, Satan had considered him.

He had been watching, waiting, wanting.

So, now he responds: “Doth Job fear God for nought?”

Did you catch it?

Could you hear the sarcasm in his voice?

Can’t you just feel the assertions of the accuser as he presents the charge?

     Why wouldn’t he serve you?

          Of course, he fears you. . .

               You’ve blessed him beyond measure.

               You’ve placed a hedge of protection around him and all he has.

          He’s the wealthiest man in all the East. . .

     Why wouldn’t he serve you?!? 

BUT:

     IF You removed Your hand of mercy. . .

          IF he were to lose all that he had. . .

               IF Your hedge of protection would be removed from his house. . .

                     He’d curse You to Your face!

What an accusation!

Read it again, slowly, and think about what he is saying.

Listen closely to what he asserts.

With his crooked, bony finger pointing in the face of God he snarls his lip and speaks:

     IF You removed Your hand of mercy. . .

          IF he were to lose all that he had. . .

               IF Your hedge of protection would be removed from his house. . .

                     He’d curse You to Your face!


You can almost smell the stench of sulphur as he shrieks: “You’re not worthy of Job’s love, devotion. He only loves You because of what You do for him!”

It’s a dramatic scene that should cause me to examine my life. Why do I serve Him? Because of what He does? Because of what I get? Or, because of who He is?

Just a thought.

Now, back to the story:

God’s on trial.

He’s been charged.

The trial begins. . .
