The prophet Elijah was on the run. He had just delivered God’s message to the evil King Ahab about sending a severe drought in response to the King turning his back on God. Needless to say, Elijah was not...
“So Elijah said to her, ‘Do not fear; go, do as you have said, but make me a little bread cake from it first and bring it out to me, and afterward you may make one for yourself and for your son. For thus says the Lord God of Israel, ‘The bowl of flour shall not be exhausted, nor shall the jar of oil be empty, until the day that the Lord sends rain on the face of the earth.'” – I Kings 17: 13-14
In the ancient times, Nineveh was one of the most powerful cities. Known for violence and wickedness, the people of Nineveh were the worst of the worst. Even the prophet Jonah preferred to go just about anywhere else. Eventually,...
“(Jonah) prayed to the Lord, ‘Isn’t this what I said, Lord, when I was still at home? That is what I tried to forestall by fleeing to Tarshish. I knew that you are a gracious and compassionate God, slow to anger and abounding in love, a God who relents from sending calamity.'” – Jonah 4:2
The prophet Elijah was the “miracle man.” When he prayed for the rain to stop, it did – for 3.5 years. When he prayed for a single mom’s dead son, the boy was brought back to life. And when...
“And he was afraid and arose and ran for his life and came to Beersheba, which belongs to Judah, and left his servant there. But he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a juniper tree; and he requested for himself that he might die, and said, “It is enough; now, O Lord, take my life, for I am not better than my fathers.” – I Kings 19: 3-4

Many who are part of our Right From The Heart
family may not know that I have been the Senior
Pastor of Johnson Ferry Church in Marietta,
Georgia, for the last 37 years. A few months ago,
I felt the Lord leading me to begin the search
process for my successor, which as I’m sure you
can imagine, wasn’t an easy decision to make!
But, it was clear to me that God was the source
of this change, so the church began the process of
searching for God’s man to follow me in the role
of Senior Pastor. I’m very pleased to say that Clay Smith
has affirmatively answered the call to become the next Sr. Pastor at JFBC.
“So,” you ask, “what happens to Right From The
Heart after you step down from pastoring the
church?” Well, I can assure you of one thing:
I STILL PLAN TO LEAD RIGHT FROM THE HEART!
I’m excited that I will have more time to focus
on our mission to “Reach and disciple people
for Jesus Christ through the use of media.” God
has blessed this ministry in so many ways, and I
know that through your continued prayers, your
financial support, and our dedication to be good
stewards of what God has graciously allowed us
to do, we will be able to reach even more people
with the Good News of Jesus Christ!
In addition, I will be adding new aspects to our
ministry at RFTH in leading Bible study tours to
Israel and Paul’s missionary journeys, as well
as mentoring younger pastors. I humbly ask for
your prayers for all of us at Right From The Heart
as this transition takes place. Thank you and
may God bless each of you!
