TAKE COURAGE

sad guyIn addition to my songwriting/recording career, I’m a worship pastor, and each week I pray through dozens of requests that come in to the church.

Sometimes I’m just floored by what a truly broken world we live in. I read about heartache and loss, struggle and pain. Job stress and illness. Relationships in deep trouble. Loneliness. Doubt. Fear. All of this from people that I care about, people I serve each week.

When life gets hard, it can be a struggle to trust God, to continue to believe He’s with us and that He loves us. And the truth is, sometimes what we know and what we feel are completely at odds.

So allow me to share some encouragement from Jesus. But first, a warning: this is not the stuff of Halmark cards; Jesus has never been the type to pretend that life will be easy.

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” (Jesus, John 16:33)

If you’re familiar with His story, you understand that Jesus knows something about “having trouble” in this world… (continue reading…)

GO AHEAD: MAKE MY DAY

I just stumbled upon this article I wrote several years ago and thought I would share it with you guys.

It was turning into one of those days when nothing could go right. It had started with some minor car trouble and a couple of frustrating phone calls followed by a long, pointless meeting. I had just taken a sip of coffee (noticing too late the bug floating in the mug) when the phone rang.

I hesitated. It had been nothing but bad news all morning, so maybe, I thought, it would be better to just let it go to voice mail. But I answered anyway, and it was my four-year-old, Emily. She was shouting into the phone and talking so fast that it took me a moment to figure out that she was saying: “Daddy! The baby smiled at me!” And this made my day.

It wasn’t just that baby Josiah had finally smiled – although, to be honest, he was three months old and it was getting to the point where his very survival might be threatened if he didn’t turn up the “cuteness” a bit. Any sleep-deprived parent of an infant (continue reading…)

EMBARRASSED BY THE CROSS

A few years ago I was the guest at a particular church, leading worship and doing a few of my songs. I sang “Remember” – which is about communion, the bread and the wine. I talked a little about the cross and the blood of Christ as I usually do when I perform that song.

After the service, I was talking with people at my CD table and there was a lady waiting to speak with me. She was very emotional and was having trouble holding back tears. She told me that, in all her years at that church, she couldn’t remember anyone ever talking about the blood of Jesus.

I said, “so why are you still here?”

I didn’t realize that one of the pastors was standing behind me when I said that. Funny how they’ve never invited me back… (continue reading…)


BILLBOARD TOP 20 DEBUT!

I filmed a quick personal message to Christian Radio stations about my new single “I Will Stand (The Solid Rock)” – which is on the verge of breaking onto the Billboard and CMW Inspirational Charts. The song has been on the Billboard “Most Added Songs” list for 3 weeks running. If your local station is playing it, please thank them for me!

And if you have a local Christian station, please thank them for playing “I Will Stand (The Solid Rock)” – or gently and politely ask them to consider it. Thanks!!


A LITTLE HELP…?

So if you’re like most people, you probably sit and wonder “What can I do for Scott Riggan today?” It’s perfectly understandable. So – helpful friend that I am – I’m here to offer a solution to your dilemma… Here are some ways you can help a brotha out:

  • Do you use iTunes? Visit the iTunes store and give a 5-star rating to my CDs (especially the new one “Remember“). You can also leave a comment (something nice, perhaps?) to help persuade people to check out my tunes.
  • Follow me on Twitter - and suggest me to friends. There’s always “Follow Friday”, for example…
  • Are you on FaceBook? My music page is HERE - you can “like” it and “suggest to friends”.

So that’s a good start, I think… Seriously – thanks for all of your help, guys. I really do appreciate anything you do to help me get my music heard.

Grace, peace and good vibes,
Scott
