EDITOR'S<br />

LETTER<br />

"Seeing Is Believing"...<br />

"When I See It, I'll Believe It.".....<br />

John 10:27, My sheep hear My voice, and I<br />

know them, and they follow Me.<br />

The Lord's voice is mentioned more than<br />

650 times in Scripture<br />

CONTINUED ON PAGE 15<br />

03 <strong>NJR</strong> <strong>DIGITAL</strong> <strong>MAGAZINE</strong><br />

Anybody here ever say that?<br />

Author and evangelist G. Campbell<br />

Morgan said, “Seeing is not believing;<br />

seeing is seeing. Believing is being<br />

confident without seeing”. That is the<br />

essence of faith!"<br />

That's the part that faith plays in our lives<br />

– we need to believe for it, BEFORE we see<br />

it.<br />

That's why Paul exhorts us in 2<br />

Corinthians 5:7 to “live by faith and not by<br />

sight” Romans 10:17 — "faith comes from<br />

hearing, and hearing by the word of<br />

Christ."<br />

So what Paul is telling us is FAITH, for the<br />

Believer, IS (not should be)..is the MAIN<br />

source of Believing.<br />

"So faith comes from what is heard, and<br />

what is heard comes THROUGH the word<br />

of Christ." Not through the news cast or<br />

your favorite televangelist, "THROUGH<br />

THE WORD OF CHRIST"<br />

Faith only comes by hearing God's Word,<br />

and believing it - no matter what - without<br />

a shadow of a doubt - without needing<br />

constant visual proof.

Reflections from<br />

Mayberry<br />

/ by Greg & Donna Journey<br />

1 John 4:7<br />

I went through a situation that came<br />

up several years ago that hurt me so<br />

“Beloved, let us love one another: for badly that I truly believed that I felt<br />

love is of God; and every one that<br />

hate not love in my heart. It scared me<br />

loveth is born of God, and knoweth<br />

and I asked God to forgive me and<br />

God.”<br />

help me through the hurt and pain. A<br />

dear friend of mine helped me see<br />

February is often called the month of that it wasn’t hate, but deep hurt for<br />

love. One of the many scriptures in the what that person had done to my<br />

Bible that speaks of love is 1st John<br />

family that I was feeling. Hurt is real<br />

4:7. As I read this verse, I thought<br />

and sometimes it can quickly turn into<br />

about how very different this world<br />

hate if we don’t keep God close and<br />

would be if we would love like God<br />

ask him to help us show love no<br />

does. I’ll be the first to let you know<br />

matter the situation. Don’t let the devil<br />

that I don’t always do that. I try my<br />

creep in when these situations arise in<br />

best but face it…… some folks make it your life. That is when he can rear his<br />

very hard to love them. However, God ugly head and when hurt can overtake<br />

tells us to love our neighbors as<br />

you and turn into sin. Be strong, stay<br />

ourselves. If we have the love of God in God’s word and ask Him to help you<br />

in our heart it makes it SO much easier love like He does. Pray for<br />

to love.<br />

understanding, comfort, and the<br />

human ability to love as God does.

2022 was a great year and God truly Blessed me and Christian<br />

Cross Roads. "The Not So Late Show" Monday and Wednesday<br />

Evening from 9 until 11 Eastern time is my favorite time of the<br />

week. I am amazed each week that people from all of the USA and<br />

literally around the world Join me each week on the " Not So Late<br />

Show".<br />

Life brings many twists and turns along the road and my journey<br />

has been very interesting to say the least.<br />

Christian Cross Roads was formed in 2014 and during that time<br />

we recorded and released 4 projects. Thanks to Bobby<br />

Richardson giving our songs a chance on New Journey Radio<br />

some of the songs became fan favorites " The Bloodline" and<br />

"Natural Reaction" and "Anybody wanna have a little Church<br />

Today" . I could never have imagined that our music would be imagined that our music<br />

would be so well received and I am truly grateful to all of you!<br />

Things have changed just a bit as we start <strong>2023</strong>.<br />

Christina and Susan have felt led to move on<br />

from Christian Cross Roads and pursue other<br />

avenues of ministry and I wish them well in their<br />

endeavors. I still feel God's call on my life and to<br />

share the love of Jesus through the songs He has<br />

given me to sing and the Christian Cross Roads<br />

ministry is continuing but with a different look.<br />

Before I was a part of the New Journey Family, I listened<br />

on the App and watched "Third cup of Joe" every morning on Facebook or YouTube and I<br />

loved all the music I was hearing. One artist in particular made an impression on me and<br />

the was Bonita Eileen.<br />

Several years after hearing her sing " Mountain" I was able to<br />

meet her and then two years later we began to date each other<br />

and fell in Love and now I am happy to say that Bonita is my<br />

fiance! Yes, God is good.<br />

Bonita and I have prayed and feel that God would have us join<br />

"Christian Cross Roads" and " in His Time Ministries" together<br />

and minister and share Jesus with the world through our music<br />

and testimony. We have been Blessed to have several bookings<br />

already and God truly moved in the services and Blessed the<br />

congregations as well as blessed Bonita and myself.<br />

09<br />

<strong>NJR</strong> <strong>DIGITAL</strong> <strong>MAGAZINE</strong>


We are currently booking dates and would love to come to your church or event and share<br />

our ministry with you. Bonita will sing the songs that you love to hear from her and I will do<br />

some of the Christian Cross Roads songs and we do some newer songs together and our<br />

Sound Man Jay Howard may even sing a few but most of all we will worship Jesus and tell<br />

you about His love for all Mankind!<br />

I have a few new songs that I have recorded and I would like to share them with you so Be<br />

listening for the first release on New Journey Radio. It's a song called " Moving On" . It was<br />

written by Joshua Jordan and it is a barn burner and a toe tapper for sure and I think it<br />

shows my fun side and definitely my country side.<br />

I hope you will enjoy the song and hopefully<br />

request to hear it . One day we all are going to<br />

move on from this world and I believe Jesus is<br />

coming to get us soon!<br />

Please pray for Bonita and Me that God would<br />

open up doors for us to sing and to minister<br />

.We both write songs and are working on a few<br />

even now and hopefully we will record our first<br />

project together in <strong>2023</strong>.<br />

Pray for God's Guidance and Anointing on our<br />

lives as we " Move On" together.<br />

I Know<br />

He Can


Don't be<br />

that Kid!<br />

When I was kid, I wanted my parents to<br />

say yes to everything. But no amount of<br />

tantrums, tears, bargaining, or bossing<br />

could sway my parents from sometimes<br />

telling me “no”. I didn’t like it, I didn’t<br />

understand it, and it took a whole lot of<br />

whoopings before I could accept it, but<br />

their “no”s taught me the kind of lessons<br />

only disappointment and surrender can<br />

teach.<br />

I must be a bit of a stubborn gal though,<br />

because I had to learn the same lessons<br />

all over again when I became a child of<br />

God.<br />

I used to believe with an unshakeable<br />

certainty that God would answer my<br />

prayers according to my faith. If I<br />

believed He could, He would. All I had to<br />

do was ask.<br />

One frosty morning in January, my<br />

husband woke up sick and stayed sick all<br />

day. God had always answered me<br />

Those painful months yawned into<br />

December, and two weeks before<br />

Christmas, my husband laid in the<br />

hospital, dying. It had been an entire<br />

year, and he was still sick despite<br />

dogged, faith-filled prayers, desperate<br />

pleading, trusting, and believing.<br />

I had been through every emotion on the<br />

wheel: anger, frustration, fear, and grief;<br />

but I had never stopped praying for<br />

healing. I was frantic, but fervent. I was<br />

confused, but confident. God would<br />

answer my prayer. He would heal my<br />

husband. He was a good and faithful God<br />

and He answers prayer according to our<br />

faith, right?<br />

But God was silent. He stayed His healing<br />

hand. And it seemed the more I prayed,<br />

the worse the illness progressed.<br />

That night in the hospital, I looked at my<br />

weak and gray-faced husband, withered<br />

and exhausted from months of fighting<br />

12<br />

<strong>NJR</strong> <strong>DIGITAL</strong> <strong>MAGAZINE</strong>


an illness that no doctor could name or<br />

cure, and I realized I was not going to get<br />

what I wanted. He was not going to<br />

miraculously improve. He was not going<br />

to get any better. It was time to face the<br />

facts. God was saying, “no”.<br />

I could not demand God heal him. I could<br />

not pitch a fit and have it my way. I could<br />

not wear Him down with asking, or<br />

persuade His mind with tears. I could not<br />

threaten Him or bribe Him or make Him<br />

act according to my will. I had tried all<br />

those things and nothing had worked.<br />

And standing outside that hospital room,<br />

I was finally able to see my error. I had<br />

been praying wrong.<br />

It wasn’t that I needed more faith; I knew<br />

what God could do. And it wasn’t that I<br />

needed to pray more. Trust me, I had<br />

wearied and worn the Judge’s door. What<br />

I really needed to do was change my<br />

prayer. And not just my words, but my<br />

attitude.<br />

As I drove home from the hospital that<br />

night, I prayed a different kind of prayer.<br />

One that was worthy of the God I offered<br />

it to.<br />

“Heavenly Father, thank You for saving my<br />

husband’s soul. And thank You for saving<br />

me. Thank You for preparing a place for us<br />

in heaven so we can be together again one<br />

day. It is okay if you do not heal my<br />

husband. I will love you either way.”<br />

I prayed that prayer a very long time<br />

ago, and God was gracious to me. He let<br />

my husband live. But not because I<br />

asked for it. He simply blessed us with<br />

more time together according to His will.<br />

And I thank Him for it every day.<br />

This is not a popular truth, but it is a<br />

truth we must all accept: We cannot<br />

move the heart of God to act according<br />

to our will. We cannot demand from Him<br />

what we want and pour enough faith<br />

into it to make Him give us what we<br />

want. A child may believe if he wants<br />

something bad enough, and acts a<br />

certain way to manipulate his mother<br />

into giving it to him, that she will…But<br />

God is not a parent who does not say no.<br />

We cannot control Him with prayer. No<br />

amount of faith or fervor will command<br />

the hand of the Almighty. What we can<br />

do is ask Him with reverence, with<br />

respect to His authority, humbly<br />

accepting that no matter what He does,<br />

it will be in our best interest.<br />

We are God’s children. We are not in<br />

control. But our heavenly Father always<br />

knows best. We can ask Him for His<br />

favor in all things, but we must<br />

surrender our wants to His will first. God<br />

will not move mountains for us<br />

according to our faith (although “without<br />

faith it is impossible to please Him” Heb<br />

11:6); He will move mountains for us<br />

according to His will and His good<br />

pleasure to dote on His sons and<br />

13<br />

daughters. Our part then, is to be good<br />

sons and daughters, not demanding of<br />

His grace, but dependent on it.<br />

“And this is the confidence that we have in<br />

him, that, if we ask anything according to<br />

his will, he heareth us:” 1 John 5:14<br />

My sheep<br />

John 10:27<br />

Editor's Letter Continued.....<br />

Think about this: We encounter<br />

Christ in the same place the<br />

disciples did, in the time of our<br />

greatest need, in the sadness of life<br />

when we are hurting and grieving.<br />

When we lock everyone out<br />

because we just don’t know how we<br />

can continue on because we are so<br />

scared that we are next, or that the<br />

whole world is against us and that<br />

no one really cares. That’s the place<br />

that most of us encounter Jesus.<br />

When we are in the midst of pain,<br />

we cry out to Jesus, when we are<br />

hurting –<br />

We cry out to Jesus, when we have<br />

nowhere else to turn –<br />

We cry out to Jesus. When we are at<br />

our lowest, when we think we just<br />

can’t go on, Jesus appears and says<br />

“Peace be with you” and somehow<br />

we know that everything is going to<br />

be ok. So we get up and He washes<br />

our face and dries our tears and<br />

we rest in His presence and<br />

continue on.<br />

Todd Baker Steps Away<br />

From Cross Anchored<br />

I had the opportunity to speak with<br />

Todd about his decision and the<br />

ministry of Cross Anchored.<br />

Myron Waddell and Todd started<br />

Cross Anchored 15 years ago sitting<br />

at a dinner table in a restaurant in<br />

Elkin, NC.<br />

heard about and personally dealt with<br />

through the years in gospel music.<br />

We did just that. As my Papa always<br />

said, "I love you all and you can’t do<br />

anything about it!"<br />

Todd says they have traveled<br />

thousands of miles and have seen<br />

GOD’s awesome power touch the<br />

lives of many during the last 15 years.<br />

"I knew GOD had great things in<br />

store for us if we kept him first and<br />

focused on true ministry instead of<br />

THE HIDING<br />

PLACE<br />

When she came to, she realized that<br />

something was terribly wrong. The last<br />

thing she really remembered was that she,<br />

and her husband, Dan, had stopped by<br />

her sister’s house for a quick dinner on<br />

their way home from a weekend get-a-way<br />

to the mountains. Now, she was sitting in<br />

a recliner – and two weeks had passed. As<br />

her sister Debra tried to explain the<br />

situation to her, overwhelming pain, and<br />

an intense feeling of fear and uncertainty,<br />

gripped her lifeless body, as the horrible<br />

story unfolded.<br />

She had suffered multiple grand mal<br />

epileptic seizures. There had been too<br />

many to calculate, and the family had even<br />

stopped counting, after the first hundred.<br />

The violent shaking and jerking had left<br />

her unconscious, and she had no control<br />

over her body whatsoever. There was no<br />

recollection of the numerous visits to the<br />

doctor’s offices and hospitals or of the<br />

continuous care given by her loving family<br />

over the last fourteen days. She was<br />

rendered unable to feed, bathe or dress<br />

herself. Her memory had all but been<br />

erased. Her speech was gone. Her mind<br />

raced uncontrollably. Silently, she<br />

questioned, “Who is taking care of my two<br />

boys? What about Dan? And why am I in<br />

this recliner?”<br />

/ By Charlie Sexton<br />

For the next six, long years, this woman<br />

lived in this condition, if you can really call<br />

that living. During the day, while Dan was<br />

at work, she read the Bible. It not only<br />

helped pass the time, it literally became a<br />

special place for her to hide from the<br />

terrible things that was going on inside her<br />

sick body. She read it through eleven times<br />

during that long, six-year period. She<br />

literally fell in love with Jesus and His<br />

blessed Word. It was her only source of<br />

strength during these dark, lonely days.<br />

The seizures typically started about 8 pm,<br />

and lasted into the early morning hours.<br />

Rest seldom came to her or the cast of her<br />

supportive caretakers.<br />

Because of some previous health issues,<br />

and because Dan had recently changed<br />

jobs, they had no medical insurance.<br />

Pharmacy bills were nearly $400 each<br />

month. In no time at all, the doctor and<br />

hospital bills mounted to over $100,000.00.<br />

Financially, things were growing as bleak as<br />

the health situation. Still yet, they clung to<br />

God’s Word, and like King David of old,<br />

they made God their pavilion and hiding<br />

place.<br />

Even though they were going through<br />

some of the most tragic things imaginable,<br />

they felt God’s divine call upon their lives.<br />

19<br />

<strong>NJR</strong> <strong>DIGITAL</strong> <strong>MAGAZINE</strong>


They attended church as often as possible<br />

and started building a singing and<br />

preaching ministry. Because of their<br />

situation, they were met with constant<br />

opposition – even from so-called<br />

Christians. But, they were sure of their<br />

Calling, and they applied the Bible<br />

Principles that they had learned in their<br />

daily lives.<br />

One Friday, after Dan had put back their<br />

tithe money, he took the remainder of his<br />

meager paycheck to purchase much<br />

needed seizure medication. That left no<br />

money for groceries, and there was almost<br />

no food in the pantry. That night, four<br />

hungry people bowed their heads, and<br />

asked God to bless their little meal that<br />

consisted of a can of “pork-n-beans”, a<br />

pack of crackers, and four pieces of<br />

sandwich bread. The next morning, a<br />

knock at the door came, and there stood a<br />

sweet, little lady from their home church.<br />

She said “Sister Brenda, about suppertime<br />

last night, I felt impressed to do something<br />

for you. Now, I don’t even know if you need<br />

‘em or not – and if my visit offends you, I’ll<br />

take my van load of groceries, and be<br />

along on my way- I just know that I heard<br />

The Voice of God.” Needless to say, that<br />

evening they had a feast complete with<br />

fried chicken and homemade biscuits that<br />

would rival that of any North Georgia<br />

Baptist Church Homecoming!<br />

God had once again shown Himself<br />

faithful. They had learned to be content in<br />

whatever state they were in. They knew<br />

that God was able to heal and restore.<br />

They had often prayed that it would<br />

happen, but they had also resolved in their<br />

hearts that no matter what, they would serve<br />

Him no matter what. In time, they took their<br />

eyes off the healing, and placed them on The<br />

Healer. That’s when things really began to<br />

happen.<br />

Some days were a little better than others,<br />

but on one blustery February morning in<br />

1991, the Holy Ghost just seemed to literally<br />

permeate their home. It was about 12:30 pm.<br />

This was a designated time when the lady<br />

faithfully prayed for others. As she went into<br />

her prayer closet, she took her list, and<br />

began calling the familiar litany of names. In<br />

closing, she said, “Lord, I pray for my healing<br />

in your time, but until then, use these<br />

seizures for your Glory!” As she stepped out<br />

of the little chamber, she heard a voice say,<br />

“You are healed. You can serve me now.”<br />

Thinking that maybe someone may have<br />

entered the house unnoticed, she headed<br />

into the living room. She heard the voice<br />

again, and recognized it as The Voice of<br />

God. She began to scream and shout.<br />

Shortly, the telephone rang, and it was her<br />

sister, Dolly, who lived close by. “What’s<br />

goin’ on up there? Are you havin’ a seizure?”<br />

The reply came back, “No! God just told me I<br />

was healed! PRAISE HIS HOLY NAME!”<br />

Many years have now passed since her<br />

healing came. But within just a few years of<br />

it, they had repaid every last penny that they<br />

owed. That itself is nothing short of a miracle.<br />

Since that time, this special woman has<br />

written and recorded hundreds of songs,<br />

traveled thousands of miles singing and<br />

teaching at Women’s Conferences all over<br />

the world. She has penned many best-selling<br />

books, including her latest effort, which has<br />

been released through LifeWay Bookstores.<br />

Ever pursuing academic excellence, she has<br />

received a Doctorate Degree from a leading<br />

theological institute. Her name is Brenda<br />

Robinson. She and ‘Brother Dan’ are the cofounders<br />

of New Desire Christian Ministries.<br />

They spearhead a multifaceted ministry that<br />

includes singing, teaching, preaching,<br />

mentoring and sharing The Love of Christ<br />

with the World. They also oversee a highly<br />

successful International Ministry, having built<br />

several churches, schools and feeding<br />

centers in Honduras, where they spend a<br />

goodly amount of time each year.<br />

I know how they live. I traveled with them for<br />

two years as pianist. They are quick to<br />

acknowledge that they’ve been truly blessed<br />

by God. Why? Not because they are really<br />

anything special. They just chose to make<br />

Him their hiding place…<br />

For everything there is a season....<br />

For well over 20 years I have had the privilege of<br />

traveling and singing with Mississipp's oldest<br />

quartet,The Bibletones. No, I was not one of the<br />

original members, but probably could have been.<br />

Actually, I was retired from the Bibletones when Jack<br />

Armstrong stepped into the picture and asked me if I<br />

would help out and do a few dates until he got his feet<br />

on the Ground, that was 7.5 years ago..takes him a<br />

while to get his feet on the ground.. It's been a blessing<br />

to be with the fine men I had the privilege of singing<br />

with. We have seen God work and open many doors<br />

Charley grew up in church and enjoyed for us to minister in that I never thought would be<br />

singing in the choir. In early 2017, possible. What a Joy !! What a God !!<br />

Charley shares the time that the Isaacs<br />

came to his church and asked him to sing My thanks and appreciation goes out to all who made<br />

bass on a couple of songs with<br />

this possible like Amy and Bobby Richardson of New<br />

them. "I was hooked, that lit a fire within Journey Radio, Great Friends. Thank you for all you<br />

me to travel, sing and lead people to guys have done and are still doing, not only for the<br />

Christ."<br />

Bibletones but countless others. My prayer has been<br />

that God would continue to lead me down the paths<br />

In 2017, Charley joined Crossing Jordan that I should trod and use me to point others to Jesus<br />

Quartet from Covington, TN. In 2018, he and be a Blessing in what ever way He sees fit. Just a<br />

felt led to start his solo career. Charley few days after we announced that I was retiring from<br />

tells the experience he gained from the Bibletones, I received a call from Greg Sullivan with<br />

singing with Master’s Quartet, Solo 4 Solo4 Quartet asking me if I would consider singing<br />

Quartet and The Dixie Echoes on<br />

with their group. I have known Greg for quite some time<br />

occasions. In December 2022, Charley and have grown to admire him more and more. Lance<br />

was offered and accepted the<br />

Driskell is fairly new to the Gospel Industry but has one<br />

bass vocalist position with The Bibletones of the best voices in Gospel Music. Ed Meadows and I<br />

Quartet.<br />

have sung together for years, both with the Bibletones<br />

and Newlife Qt. I am so excited to be working with him<br />

"I am a Quartet man at heart and this again. People love my Little Buddy... So as we read in<br />

makes my heart explode." For many the Bible in Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 we find," For everything<br />

years, Charley says he struggled with self there is a season, and a time for every matter under<br />

doubt. God definitely has a plan, and<br />

Heaven", so with Joy and<br />

Charley says "I trust in God with all my<br />

anticipation we start a<br />

heart and He hasn’t nor will He ever let<br />

new Journey to see what<br />

me down. I look forward to traveling with<br />

God has in store. Thank<br />

The Bibletones Quartet, sharing my<br />

you in advance for your<br />

testimony and my love for Christ, and<br />

prayers and support as I<br />

leading the lost to Christ."<br />

join hands with Solo4<br />

open to the will of God.<br />
