First Day of Holly Jolly 25!

Today is the first day of Holly Jolly 25! 25 straight days of your favorite Christmas songs till Christmas Day! WNZR would also like to thank these businesses for supporting our Holly Jolly 25; A+ Auto Brokers, GR Smith Hardware, Knox Community Hospital, Knox Starting Point, Lewis Clark Insurance Agency, and Mid-Ohio Powersports.

For Praise Thursday Jonathon shared a devotional from Our Daily Bread called “Mutual Encouragement”. Xochitl Dixon shares from Hebrews 3 in the first devotional in the Holiday Edition for Our Daily Bread! You can find a copy with us at WNZR whenever we go “On the Road with Big Blue”.

I later shared a devotional called Remembering Christmas. I shared that the Christmas season can feel crowded and sometimes overwhelming, but the day of Jesus’ birth the innkeepers had no room and Mary gave birth in a stable and laid him in a manger. That before the hustle and bustle of the season, before we forget, lets remember to make room for the true meaning of Christmas.

We are on the road with Big Blue this Saturday, December 3rd from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Fredericktown Christmas Walk Charity Auction. It will be a Country Christmas this year to celebrate the 22nd Annual Christmas Walk and Charity Auction with a partnership with Food For the Hungry of Knox County to help raise funds to support Fredericktown Interchurch, the Fredericktown Salvation Army, and the Fredericktown Community Relief Fund.

Last Day for Totally Tasty Tom Turkey Registration!

To kick off Praise Thursday Emma shares her devotional from “Wellbeing” day 3. Sharing that we have very little control over our emotions or our environment. That when we worry it’s our brain’s way to gain control when there is none. “A healthy mind doesn’t try to control its situation, a healthy mind accepts that sometimes life will bring hard circumstances.”

Jonathon then continues with his devotional from Our Daily Bread titled “A Heavenly Reunion.” He talked about when we die God promises a heavenly reunion that can comfort us when we are grieving the loss of a loved one who trusted Jesus. Also our promised future with Jesus gives us hope when facing our own immortality, until we are called home or Jesus comes back.

Today is the last day to be registered for the Totally Tasty Tom Turkey Hunt! Congrats to Jana and Jennifer from Mount Vernon they are registered for the Totally Tasty Tom Turkey Hunt. There is still only ONE chance for you to get registered, TONIGHT at 8 with Ben Alexander.

We had some game time with Name that Tune! Congrats to Rodney from Gambier who gest the right answer of Live With Abandon by Newsboys. He wins a Casting Crowns CD! There is still a chance to win a CD next week during the drive.

Emma shared day 6 of While We Wait. She shared about how when we don’t understand the purpose for the waiting, it is easy for us to be discouraged, frustrated, and angry in the process. That in this time in our lives we need to put our trust in God. That we need to understand that even when His way are not our ways, that He only has the best for us even when we don’t recognize it.

Jonathon then shared with us his devotional from Our Daily Bread titled “Self-Control in God’s Strength.” He shared that we might struggle to show self-control when we are offered something we desire, if when we know it would benefit us to wait. That God grows us in our waiting, that showing self-control is apart of.

That it took Christiansen years until Legos were finally sold in stores. That with perseverance in challenges of work we can strive to grow not only in our work but also in our faith.

Emma then shared day five ofWhile We Wait.” The author of day 5 Liz Sarno wrote about her trip to NYC and all of the delays that she went through on her trip. That because of these delays we become agitated and frustrated, but we have no clue what amazing things God has for us in those delays. That when we are patient and embrace the waiting it can refine us and bring us to a place of wholeness.
