Many times, when people hear or consider the word blessing, the thought that comes to mind is, the Lord blessing them or someone else. However, blessings can go both ways. Simply put, we can bless the Lord even as the Lord blesses us!

In Psalm 34:1, King David vows to bless and praise the Lord at all times. He declares that he would bless the Lord at all times and his praise would continually be in his mouth. King David made it clear, that he would bless and praise the Lord whether he was sick or well, up or down, rich or poor, happy or sad, etc. David let it be known that he would not allow anything in his life, be it good or bad; to stop or hinder him from blessing and praising God. David understood that when we bless and praise the Lord, our focus is totally on him rather than ourselves.

As we assume this same attitude and approach in our lives that David did, we can experience a peace that only the Lord can give, despite any situation or circumstance we face! It is written in God’s Holy Word in Isaiah 26:3, “Thou will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee; because he trusteth in thee (KJV).” Therefore beloved brothers and sisters, remember that the Lord will not allow you to bless him, and he not bless you in return! He reciprocates the blessing. In other words, as you bless him, the Lord blesses you!

Jim Sherwood serves as chief creative, brand strategist, lead developer, meticulous project manager, and station collaborator for all Skyrocket Radio sites and projects.

Jim got his start in radio at WLSM in the small town of Louisville, MS in 1988. Since then he has worked on-air in all day parts and has held nearly every other station position at one time or another. Jim has worked for radio stations in several states and for iHeartMedia (Clear Channel Radio), CBS Radio, Cumulus Broadcasting and a few small locally-owned stations. He even hosted a morning show on an aircraft carrier for two years while in the Navy. Jim has a passion for radio history, music, gadgets and all kinds of geeky web stuff.

After 14 years at Clear Channel Radio, Jim left the industry in 2013 to devote full-time attention to his company, Mediagin Creative, a small freelance creative agency that develops WordPress websites as well as produces commercials for radio and TV. After being asked by the Mississippi Association of Broadcasters to speak to a panel of small market station owners about the need for better websites, it became apparent that an easy to use and low-cost solution was needed to assist smaller markets in competing for online ad dollars. Skyrocket Radio was born.
