Nathan Kistler

January 2017 – Hope to the Hill

We are just a few days away from Inauguration Day. The world will have its eyes on the city of Washington, D.C. and we will be there trying to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with all those who are attending.

We have partnered with Seedline International to bring a special Inauguration Day John and Romans booklet to the city of Washington. God’s Word is powerful and can change the hearts and minds of people. No matter what side of the aisle one may be on, God loves you and we want to share this news.

Day 24 of 30 Days of Prayer: Michele Bachmann

Dave and Nathan Kistler.

We ask that you pray for this endeavor, that God would provide the funds needed and that He would bless the disbursement of His Word. We also ask that you pray for our leaders that God would protect them during this transition of power. Pray for their hearts to be softened by the Word of God. We need leaders who will make known our need for repentance and a Holy God. Our nation’s future depends on what God’s people would do in the coming days.

I wanted to share a little story with you from a month ago or so. I was at a pastors’ town hall event on the Hill where many members of Congress stopped by and shared what God is doing in their lives. It was a glorious time of prayer and singing that evening on the floor of the United States’ Senate!

Rob Patz asks: “Do You Ever Get Scared?”

February 2017 SGNScoops Magazine

February 2017 SGNScoops Magazine featuring Rob Patz in Publisher’s Point

2017 February – Rob Patz – Publisher’s Point – SGNScoops Magazine

Do you ever get scared of what is going to happen? Do you ever wonder if you are really going down the right path that God has selected for you?  These are some of the things I’ve been thinking about this month as I am writing my Publisher’s Point.

 

There are times where I really wonder if where I am is exactly where God has selected for me to be, but I know in the end I have His hand on my life. If we pray, God is going to reassure us and give us peace. As for the first question, do I ever get scared? I would have to say almost on a weekly basis! Does that make me a less of a person? I don’t think so. I think it shows that I am mindful of what God has and what He is going to do.

 

I do worry a times that I will get headed in the wrong direction. I like to do things right away, I like things to be accomplished immediately so that I can move onto the next task. I’m goal driven. I like to say I can check that off my list of things to do today.

 

Unfortunately, we as Christians don’t always get clear answers right away. Sometimes, God asks us to wait, as He says, “Peace, be still.” Probably the hardest thing for me to do is to sit still.

 

Rob Patz

Rob Patz

I was in an airport recently and if you know about travel, there is a lot of downtime. For most people, they sit at the gate and wait. Unfortunately, that isn’t me. I walk up and down the main aisle because I don’t like to sit and I don’t like to wait.

 

I think this year that is one of the things that God is trying to teach me. He is teaching me that there are times where you have to wait, you have to sit still, you have to have the peace that comes from just being still. That is something I’m working on. I’m not sure I will ever be completely comfortable sitting and waiting, but I am starting to understand that God at times needs us to stay in one place to learn something!  

 

I’ve started to pray almost daily that God will give me peace in the midst of my waiting. Are you at a point right now in your life where you are waiting? It’s God asking you to be still for a moment.

 

I would love to tell you that over this past time that I’ve been dealing with this, that it’s gotten easier, but that wouldn’t be the truth. While I sit here and wait, I learn to be thankful for the things that are around. Please don’t ever miss an opportunity to be thankful for that moment, even if God has you sitting at the gate, waiting to board your next adventure.

 

Rob Patz

Ready for Adventure!

God is still in control. Until next month, this is the Publisher’s Point.
P.S. Don’t forget, I want to see you in Oxford, Alabama, March 23rd through the 25th. Over 30 great Southern Gospel artists in one location! More news inside SGNScoops.

David Staton: Can You Handle It?

Written by Staff on January 12, 2017 – 10:19 pm -

David Staton and family

David Staton and family

The Power of Being Thankful

I read an article recently about a mother who stopped to get her kids some ice cream cones. She watched her kids take the ice cream and as they took their tasty treat from the lady behind the counter, the mom noticed that not one of them offered a simple thank you. As soon as they walked out of the ice cream shop, the mother took every single ice cream cone and threw them in the trash.

The kids, obviously upset, asked why she would do such a thing. The mom explained the importance of being thankful. This may seem extreme, but that mother probably made a lasting impression on her kids about how important it is to be thankful.

We live in a self-serving, entitled, what’s in it for me society. It’s hard to find people who are truly thankful for anything. My wife and I try our best to instill thankfulness in our kids.  We do our best to make sure that “Thank You” is part of their regular vocabulary.

A great example of the power of thankfulness can be found in Luke 17: 11-19 when Jesus heals 10 people plagued with the most horrible disease of that day, leprosy. They all walked away, enjoying the healing, restoration and freedom they thought they would never see again, yet only one of them turns around to thank Jesus, who so graciously had just made them whole again.

David Staton and familyNot long ago, someone asked me a question that I think every Christian should answer. The question was, “If you could be any kind of Christian, what kind of person would you be?” I had never been asked that before, but after thinking about it, I answered.  I would want to be the kind of Christian, that should scripture continue to be written for future generations, my name would be mentioned.  

I would want my faith to be so strong, that demons tremble when I walk into a room, and I would allow God to use me in such a way that I would not just be a footnote, or lumped into a generalized context.

What kind of monumental thing would you have to do to be mentioned in scripture? This one leper was worth being mentioned simply because he was thankful! Wow! Let that sink in for a minute. A simple “Thank You” was enough to get you mentioned in scripture. There was enough power in a simple thank you, to have the Son of God point you out of a crowd.

Think about the people in your life that give you so much. Think about your kids who love you unconditionally, or your wife who supports you and pours so much into you and your kids. Think about the employer that believes in you enough to continually give you a salary to provide for your family. Think about your pastor who spiritually feeds and equips you spiritually.

Now do something that has so much power and go to each of them and thank them for what they mean to you  Then think of a God who created you and gave you everything and more than I just mentioned.

Thankfulness! It’s a powerful thing!

Wisdom from Dusty Wells: This Place

Written by Staff on January 8, 2017 – 11:16 am -

Dusty Wells

Dusty Wells

By Dusty Wells

One of my favorite cherished memories that I hold onto, of my many years of traveling, ministering, taking care of and walking alongside of the late prolific songwriter, artist and my friend Dottie Rambo, was listening to her tell me stories of how she was divinely inspired to write certain songs. Or how she would come up with ideas for her lyrics and music….you see Dottie was not one that liked to be put into a room and told to write something. She hated having deadlines for writing for a new project. She always wanted her heart, life and soul to be open, honest and vulnerable to where she was on her own journey.

 

Dottie lived what she sang and then she sang what she lived. She chose to live her songs and then share them with the world. Many days and nights of our traveling together or sitting at her house doing work during the evening, I would hear her crying out in pain from her back problems. I knew one of the only things that would help is when she would get in the anointing, so I would start asking her to tell me about her life, her journey, the fans she loved and the story behind the songs.

 

I had the opportunity to tape many of those conversations via an old cassette recorder that she loved to tape on while recording new song ideas. She always wanted to have a book out on the Story Behind the Songs. We would always end up with tons of used Kleenex tossed aside, and tears and laughter taking us to new places. She had a story for everything or so it seemed. I loved listening to her and I loved to encourage her to tell me more.

This morning as I was out walking, I was doing a little praying and seeking God for some certain answers not only for our life but also for several friends who are in desperate need for answers. I looked around at the beautiful foliage and greenery that surrounds the lake which we live close to, and I was reminded so gently that God is all around us. Yes He is in the churches where we worship, in the concert halls we sing at,and in the grand cathedrals that were built in His honor. He is found in all of those places, but He is right here in our hearts. That is His dwelling place. I felt Him in a fresh way and I knew He was right there with us.

 

I started humming the classic Dottie chorus, “Holy Spirit Thou Art Welcome,” and all of a sudden I remembered her telling me the story of how that song came to be.

 

The Rambos (Buck, Dottie and Reba) had been invited to sing behind the Iron Curtain in the early ‘70’s. They were told they could sing any and all of their songs, but they could not talk about God or the blood of Jesus if they were to talk and share in between the songs. All they could do was sing the Gospel. Nothing else would be tolerated.

Thankfulness by Selena Day

Written by Staff on November 24, 2016 – 4:24 pm -

 

Selena Day

Selena Day and her husband Chuck

Thankfulness has been a life lesson on my heart for the past few years. It has become the thread in the tapestry of lessons Papa God has taught me. There are seasons in my life when I feel the need to keep a gratitude journal; a tangible book of remembrance for me to direct my focus on what God is doing. Thankfulness has become a way of life in the Day home. 

Let me stop for a moment and share with you a truth I believe. I believe that God is talking ALL the time; I mean He likes to talk more than anyone I know. I believe that He talks to everyone and not just to Christians. I know; take a deep breath as this may shock some of you. As Life Coaches, Chuck and I share the knowledge and wisdom Christ has given us with many young people and do not just keep that wisdom for our own children, but our children know our hearts, so they know deeper secrets into the life lessons from the Day kingdom. They know they have our hearts so they don’t have to repeatedly ask us for permission to come to our table and ask questions; they just know that it is their table as well. People come to Chuck all the time asking advice about writing and becoming an artist, but it has only been our children Chuck ever paid lessons for and bought equipment to further their artistic drive. I believe that we as God’s children have an advantage, that by being in relationship with the Creator of the universe, we have access to keys that unlock truths that the rest of the world grapples with. 

Jeremiah 33:3 says, “Call to Me, and I will answer you. I will tell you of great things, things beyond what you can imagine, things you could never have known.”

Selena Day

Selena Day

I personally believe that for centuries God in His word has taught us, His children, to have a grateful heart and now medical research is proving that being thankful actually promotes positive health.  

I believe that having a thankful heart keeps us as believers looking to the external in our lives, but at the same time helps us have a healthy view of our internal thoughts, which science is starting to prove is beneficial to living a healthy life. 

I love Thanksgiving!  For me the Christmas season begins right after Hallowe’en. Yes, I am that person, I begin to decorate our house in early November as it takes a lot of work getting that stuff up so I spread it out. During these weeks leading up to the time we celebrate our Savior’s birth, my heart and mind is meditating on the goodness of all that God has done in our lives. Thanksgiving becomes this day that is more than just a day of remembrance, it is a sabbath moment; a day that we take as a reminder to celebrate all the good that the Savior has done, is doing, and will do in our lives. For me it is a day that we choose to stop the busyness of life and gather with our loved ones and say, “I am so grateful to belong to the kingdom of God.”

This article is not about remembering to have a heart of gratitude all year and not just once a year, though I would like to challenge you with this thought. Just as we take this moment once a year and feel grateful, try to set aside a few moments of holiday in your daily life everyday and feel grateful. There is more to it than just saying thanks. It’s about taking a quiet sabbatical and remembering your day and feeling the gratitude for all the good that goes on around you. 

Chuck and Selena Day

Chuck and Selena Day

Chuck and I sometimes play this game when we can feel our hearts growing heavy.  We will ask each other: “Tell me something positive? Or tell me something you are thankful for?”  We call it: The Thankful Game.  I believe that when you take a moment and stop from the busyness of life and feel gratitude, you start to build memorials of God’s goodness in your heart and mind that open doors to more of His blessings. 

So this season however your family and friends celebrate, stop and be thankful that we have a national holiday where we can take a day off to remember the goodness around us. Also, remember every day to make your own little holiday within yourself, to memorialize God’s goodness in your life.  

It is amazing when you filter your life through thankfulness. You will start to see the people and circumstances around you in a positive way and you will also start to feel differently about yourself and your life.

Happy Thanksgiving From the Days!

Once again, we join Nathan Kistler for Thirty Days of Prayer for the Nation, as we approach Election Day.

We were so honored to have the first African American Chaplain of the US Senate with us the for day 14 that we decided to share his prayer again with you all for day 17. Chaplain Black is one of the finest men I have ever known and folks need to see his prayer! Share it and like it!

Chaplain Black, leads multiple Bible studies every week in the US Capitol Building on top of his primary job of taking care of the 100 senators and those who work for them. I have spent much time in the Chaplain’s office and he has been such a blessing to me. I hope those of you who watch and join in prayer today can get an idea of what that is like.

Thank you Chaplain for joining us in our initiative. Forgive the abrupt ending as the Chaplain did this video on his cell phone. Please share this and join us here or at Hope To The Hill tomorrow for another prayer. We need leaders like the Chaplain who will speak truth and live lives of “Predictable Holiness” as the Chaplain always to me. #30daysofprayer
