    Over 40 years ago, while serving as a local pastor, I was privileged to begin broadcasting Morning Devotions over radio station WOPI in Bristol, Tennessee. This 30-minute program is currently aired over the WKPT radio network in Kingsport, TN, which includes WOPI in Bristol, TN/VA, 1490 on the AM dial; and WKTP in Jonesborough/Johnson City, TN, 1590 on the AM dial; and WKPT in Kingsport, TN, 1400 on the AM dial, at 5:30 a.m., Monday thru Friday.

    These radio programs are devotional in nature--they are meant to help bring us into the presence of the living and loving Savior. They are not for entertainment, but rather a time to become emptied of self and filled with God--to be flushed out of everything that is impure, hateful, anxious, self-seeking, mean, gloomy, jealous, revengeful, selfish, unbelieving--and to be filled instead with everything loving, pure, wholesome, kind, benevolent, tranquil, hopeful, forgiving--in other words, to be filled with Jesus! I would suggest that you take just one devotional each day to listen to; try to listen early in the morning before business begins and distractions start up. My only wish and desire in making these past radio programs available now to you is that you may become filled with the Christ presented to us in the Scriptures in all of His reality and fullness.

    David said in Psalm 5:3 "My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O Lord; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up." It is so important, that before we seek the face of any other, we first seek the face of God. There comes a time when we need to listen to the news and become aware of what man is doing to man, but not first thing in the morning! Let us first look heavenward and be filled with the Lord's lovingkindness. Then after we have "leaned our arms awhile upon the window sill of heaven, and gazed upon our Lord," we may then "turn strong to meet our day."


    "When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, Lord, will I seek."

                                                                                       -Psalm 27:8 


                                                                           John A. Thrasher, Pastor



Every Morning .....

Lean thine arms awhile

upon the window sill of heaven,

and gaze upon thy Lord. 

Then with the vision in thy heart,

turn strong to meet thy day.
