More New Years Resolutions for 2021. Staying positive in difficult times.

Written by scoopsnews on December 31, 2020 – 12:54 pm -

by Vonda Armstrong

New Year’s resolutions are a big focus this time of year. With 2020 rapidly coming to a close, many people will be looking forward to the year ahead and hoping that it is the best year possible.

Millions around the world will be setting New Year’s resolutions, which will typically involve some form of self-improvement. Mine is simply, enjoy the little things in life. The older I get, the more I realize that they are the things that really matter. I want to be a better “Vonda” in 2021.  I certainly want to tell more people about Jesus this year than ever before. He is the best thing that’s ever happened to me!

I asked some of our writers ,staff, and friends at SGN Scoops what are they looking forward to in 2021.

Here’s what some had to say.  Feel free to put your resolutions in the comments below.

Robbie Maxwell (New Ground)

My resolution would be to continue walking. Since we have been unable to sing because of the pandemic I have taken a job at Cathedral Caverns near our home as a Tour Guide!!!! I am walking over five miles a day and I feel sooooo much better!!!! I want to continue this for 2021!

 

Billy Walker (The Walkers)

Our goal for 2021 is to continue to seek His will in all we do (Proverbs 3:6) and not to focus on the challenges that try to take our eyes off of Him. We want to keep ourselves healthy and fit so we can keep up with all the blessings we will encounter.

 

Charlie Sexton (Charlie Sexton & Homecoming)

I go into 2021 with a renewed love for my family, and a desire to be the best ‘me’ I can be. I also want to spend more time hiding The Word in my heart, because there could soon come a time when we no longer have it to hold in our hands.

Donnie Cox ( Quartet Time, WSNL)
My New Year’s resolution…is to “make myself available to my loved ones who need me… and be an affective person in their lives…”

 

Jack Armstrong (Bibletones QT)

The year 2020 has taught me not to take anything for granted. My New Years Resolution is to appreciate more the times we get to minister and to take every opportunity to go to church, pray, and read my Bible.

I asked some of our writers ,staff, and friends at SGN Scoops what are they looking forward to in 2021.

Here’s what some had to say. We will be posting these over the next couple of days.  Feel free to put your resolutions in the comments below.

 

 

Ashley Franks, Josh & Ashley Franks

“What do you say at the end of a year like 2020? I believe the Apostle Paul said it best when he resolved to forget those things behind him and press toward the mark of the highest prize, which is a calling in Jesus. My New Year’s Resolution is to leave behind all the disappointments and defeats from 2020, and press toward something great from God for myself and my family in 2021!”

 

 

 

 

Dave Taylor, KWFC

I want to SEE better.  The isolation and separation of 2020 has created a lot of pain hidden to the naked eye.  I want to -need to – be still and see and help meet the the needs of the people God has put around me.

 

SGN Scoops Magazine Welcomes KWFC

 

Jason Dyess, WMER

I usually pray for the Lord to give me a word for my next year and He does. I’m still praying and listening for that word. I usually don’t do resolutions, I wait on His word. It was something I read onetime and there’s a book about it. The first time I did it, the Lord gave me the word “change” and that next year we had a whole year of change in our lives.

 

Matthew Wilson, Eagle’s Wings

Self development is the theme for 2021. But I have no desire to develop who I was but rather to develop a new creature that can be used by God. My resolution is to focus on things God requires of us but that we seem to ignore. Bible reading and study, prayer, meditation and fasting. Things God has given us as a way to draw closer to Him. To draw closer to God is a privilege and that is my resolution for this year. And also, to lose some weight lol

 

Jeff Sneed , Sneed Family

In this last year of turmoil, sadness,  and disappointed I’ve seemed to let the cares of the world overtake me. Rather than digging in and buckling down in a close relationship to God I’m afraid I’ve tried to avoid reality. Rather than being a prayer warrior I’ve been in a sense of denial and pushing things out of my mind and heart. I’m going to try to face the turmoil of the world with a built up faith and a much closer walk with God so I might be a stronger and more useful soldier in this great army for the Lord.

 

Joe Belcher, Fields of Grace

I  would love to be more active in ministry and service to the kingdom of our Lord in 2021. For me I would enjoy spreading the message of the gospel in writing, music and travel with family and Fields of Grace.

 

Lorraine Walker, SGN SCOOPS MAGAZINE

My resolution for 2021 is to seek and find the places where I can be most effective in sharing the love of God and his plan of salvation for us all. I want to become better at living a life that witnesses love to everyone around me, especially to the neighbors and friends I have been praying for.

Labor Day Sale at SGN Scoops

Written by scoopsnews on September 7, 2020 – 9:21 am -

 

Have you ever wondered what the Bible says about Labor Day?  We did too so we asked biblestudytools.com and here is what we found out.

The beginning of work is from the beginning of time. God Himself worked for six days and rested on the seventh. When God completed creation He called it “very good”. We are created in the image of God and are designed to experience success and fulfillment through hard work! As Christians, we should view our jobs as an opportunity to serve God through perseverance and patience, and serve others through a Christ-like attitude. This Bible verse can be used to reflect on your work during Labor Day and any time of the year.

Colossians 3:23

23 Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters,

 

ONE DAY ONLY……..

In Celebration of Labor Day , SGN scoops is offering Buy one Get one Subscription to SGN SCOOPS Magazine. The LeFevre Quartet is on the cover of September so it’s a great time to subscribe!

One for you and one for a friend, TODAY ONLY.

July 2020 SGN Scoops Magazine

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on July 23, 2020 – 9:52 am -

It’s July and I’m sure you are sitting out in your backyard, or on the beach, and enjoying the summer heat and the sunshine. Or you are sitting in the shade and drinking a cold lemonade. Either way, I hope you have time to peruse the entire issue of the SGN Scoops July 2020 magazine. We have so much for you to enjoy!
First off, we have a cover story of one of the Crabb Family. Adam Crabb is a soloist, as well as being a member of the Gaither Vocal Band. As you read about his life, I hope you see Adam’s big beautiful heart, which has been made and moulded by God.
We have so many other great artists that we also are highlighting in this issue, including the great Guy Penrod, the top-notch Jerry Sally, and those Christian Country artists with the comedic flair, Sunday Drive. Be sure you don’t miss the stories on Dallas Rogers, Beyond Grace, and Mary Burke. All of this, plus the DJ Spotlight, the Publishers Point, the SGNScoops charts, and the new release reviews. And there’s even more, so be sure not to miss one page.
Special thanks to all of our wonderful writers, creative/design staff, and editorial group for the hard work and time commitment that you give to SGN Scoops every month. You are so appreciated!
The main thing we hope that you read in this month’s issue, is the artists’ commitment to the Lord, their heart for ministry, and their ability to communicate what God has done in their life. If you are unable to see what God has done in your life, feel free to email me. Let’s chat about faith! My email address is lorraine@sgnscoops.com
