Q&A with Tom:
Ephesians 1: 2-14 (NIV)
Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will— to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves. In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that he lavished on us. With all wisdom and understanding, he made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ, to be put into effect when the times reach their fulfillment—to bring unity to all things in heaven and on earth under Christ.
In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will, in order that we, who were the first to put our hope in Christ, might be for the praise of his glory. And you also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession—to the praise of his glory.

What I love about WCTL?
Unlike other media, WCTL strives to give listeners a positive alternative and inspiration to have a closer relationship with God.
For most of my life I struggled with guilt and the feeling I was not worthy of God’s love. My eyes were finally opened to the simple fact that God loves each and every one of us no matter what. All we have to do is acknowledge and accept that love, ask for His forgiveness and try to live our lives more in His will. The love of God is there for all of us. All we have to do is accept it and He will take care of the rest. You most likely will not hear claps of thunder or see lightning strike, (like I had thought would happen), but a feeling of peace and joy is there for you. All you have to do is sincerely ask.
