Do you ever ask questions of the Heavenly Father? My latest one was, “Lord, is WBFJ really needed anymore?”
I would have never asked that 30 years ago in the 80’s when I came to WBFJ (AM). Records were really records–there were no IPODS, MP3, SIRUS XM, nationwide Christian music networks—and WBFJ was one of the few stations in the area where you could hear contemporary Christian music and related ministry. Playing the music led to more contemporary artist coming to town and with that a lot more ministry opportunities.
Today the music is available everywhere! And as a smaller listener-supported ministry, when financial support comes a little harder along with other problems, the question comes to mind, “Lord, are we really needed anymore?”
The Father answers honest questions so as I woke up two days ago, the Lord answered mine something like this. “John, all those radio stations (including WBFJ) and all those other things you mention are ‘My Voice’ and ‘My Voice’ needs to be heard. But WBFJ is ‘My hands and feet’ for Kernersville, Midway, Mt. Airy, and your neck of the woods. How good is a ‘Voice’ with no ‘hands and feet’? “
Your questions may be a little different from mine but the answer may be the same. You are a part of the ‘body’ and no part of the body is without significance. “Do not be weary in well-doing as you will reap the harvest in due time!”
My better half Judy gave me the greatest ‘human’ gift in 1987 when she said “I do”. Don’t try to reconcile the math, but I have 3 teen age grandchildren now. Hannah, the oldest gave me the name “Papa John” and was disappointed when she found out that all those pizza places were not mine.
