Trusting God When It Makes No Sense

Written by scoopsnews on February 10, 2018 – 5:56 am -

Weekend Word

“No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it.” – 1 Corinthians 10:13

There is a wonderful Bible story that describes a much greater God. It’s the story of three Hebrew boys who refused to worship the idols of Nebuchadnezzar. Their response, “God can spare us from the fiery furnace; He has that power. But, even if He does not, we’ll never serve your gods or bow down to your statue.” They chose to trust God even when it made no earthly sense to do so. And God came through for them, Remember?
God will never take us through a trial that is too hard for us to deal with. No matter how difficult your trials, you can trust His promise. He will give us a way to endure it, to resist it, or to get through it. I’m sure folks made fun of the three boys as they do us sometimes today, but they trusted God. Are you trusting him with your trial today? You can! Even when it makes no earthly sense.

This weeks “Weekend Word” has been brought to you by Vonda Easley, Beautifully Broken. To book Vonda for your next Ladies event, 256-310-7892 or

“Today’s Show was like no other”, states Vonda Easley, host of The Strictly Southern Show. Strictly Southern is a syndicated weekly program based out of Heflin, Alabama at WPIL 91.7 FM.

We asked Vonda what was different about the show. Here’s what she said:

”I wish I could tell you but all I know is God showed up and showed out. There was a time when I was squalling and couldn’t hold back. I found out today that God can show up anywhere, even in a tiny radio station in a tiny little town.”

A Visit with Vonda Easley of Hope’s Journey

Written by Staff on February 27, 2015 – 11:27 am -

Hope's Journey

Hope’s Journey

VONDA ON THE RUN by Robert York

I decided to dust off my passport and travel across the state line to visit a friend in Alabama. After getting everything clear they let me in. I visited with a great friend while I was there and would like to let you know exactly what she does. Most everyone knows her as the “HEY Y’ALL” lady, while I know her as Vonda and Friend.

Vonda Easley doing her show “Strictly Southern with Vonda Easley”

Vonda Easley is involved in numerous things that go on in Southern Gospel Music. In her early life she was brought up loving Gospel, Bluegrass and Country music. Around 10 years ago she and her daughter Ashley Easley formed a group to share God’s word and message in Southern Gospel music. She named the group “Hope’s Journey” and has been going strong ever since. She works with Morris Music Group and has a promotion company, Hey Y’all Media. You can also find her working as a dental hygienist.  Ashley married Josh Franks and left Hope’s Journey to sing with her husband.  Tracy Byrd is now singing with Vonda and image2Chris Clay in Hope’s Journey. Vonda is also deeply involved with SGN Scoops and has developed a relationship with them that is carried all around the world.

Well, that’s just to say a little about Vonda.  I when to Heflin, AL to see what she was up to.  First off, there was a concert that Josh and Ashley hosted called ‘Battle of the Quartets’.  It featured Mark Trammell Quartet and The Perrys along with Josh and Ashley.  Well guess who was also there:

Ashley Easley Franks

Grandma Vonda keeping her grandchildren and spending time with her family.  The next morning she was up bright and early for her live radio program at  WPIL-FM called Strictly Southern with Vonda Easley.  She had Charlie Sexton as a guest on the program talking about a benefit concert that was happening that evening.  I then joined her on the program where we chatted about Gospel music and concerts. The final 30 minutes of the program is usually devoted to a phone call with Rob Patz talking about events that are going on and just really having a good fun time.  Rob loves to call that portion of the show the Rob and Vonda Show, but Vonda has a different idea about it.

One of the upcoming events that Vonda is heavily involved in, that will prove to be very successful and enjoyable is Southern Gospel Weekend, March 26-28 at the image4Oxford, AL Civic Center. Vonda and Rob have put together a great weekend of Southern Gospel Music which will feature around 30 artists. This one of the many events sponsored by SGN Scoops which also host the Diamond Awards Program in the fall at the Creekside Gospel Music Convention.
SGW logoWell after the radio program, Vonda went by to spend a little while with her mother and take her to lunch, but the day was not over for her. Hope’s Journey had a benefit concert to perform at that evening so it was off to the concert to sing. She was joined by several other groups and they raised over $3500 for a young child whose medical expenses had become more than the parents could afford. 
This is just a little about Vonda Easley and what she does to carry God’s message to hurting folks. Visiting with her and the staff at WPIL-FM is always an honor for me.  Keep up with Vonda and Hopes Journey.
