As summer winds down and another fall  begins, I'm again reminded that just as nature changes seasons, there are seasons in our lives. I know this is not a new revelation for me, or for you, but I thought I'd write just a little bit about where I am right now. For years I've struggled with balancing between my career as a real estate appraiser with music and ministry, trying to do both and not combing them very successfully or efficiently. That stress doesn't usually show on the outside, but those who know me best know it's there.

But now the season seems to be changing. God has brought several people into my life who are willing and able to help expand what God has given me to do. And I realize, it's not about them helping ME, but that God has given them a desire to use their gifts in His service as much as I do. He's brought us together to accomplish His plans and purpose. And so we look ahead with anticipation about what lies ahead, and I hope that you will join us (it's not "me" anymore" as God leads on this path.

More details to come.....

Well, the recording gear is now set up in my living room. I was using the bedroom, but the living room is more open and will work better for Jack and I to record our guitar and vocal parts. It's not anything like the studio I had on Fairview Lane, with soundproof walls and all, but it will do. When I moved here last year (can't believe it's been over a year already!), I had plans of turning one side of the garage into a studio, but God kept saying "no" to that. And now I can see that wasn't the best plan. Just like staying at 63 Fairview Lane wasn't the best plan, even though that's where my studio was. Isn't God good? But so often we don't see that until after the fact. His plan truly is best.

If you had told me a year or so ago that the guys and I could record a new CD without the studio on Fairview Lane, I'd have said no way. Or even that I could record a CD myself. But yet, "My Praise, My Prayer" is now a reality, and the band's new CD is on it's way as well. God provides, and not always like we hope He will. I've had to let go of my desires, my ways, my limitations and a few other things, but when I do, He says "OK, now we're ready - let's do this!"

Is God waiting for you to let go of something? Are you hanging onto your way of doing things, maybe telling God that you can't do something because you don't have the resources? I never thought I could ever record an album in a living room, but guess what? It's being done! Friend, move forward with God, using whatever He has given you. Take what you have and use it for His glory, serving Him and serving others. He'll bless your efforts, and He'll bless you as well.

More next time!




Hey, guys, lots of new things happening here at Jesscott Music Ministries. Well, at least for a while that's what it will still be called. I'm happy and proud to be forming a new music venture called "NoteSpire Music LLC" with my friend Nate Miller, here in York PA. Scary. Exciting. Overwhelming. Awesome. Fun. And more!

God has brought so many great people into my life, and I am honored and grateful to be working with people like Nate, and many others including Ted Brennan, my former pastor and good friend in Campbell, NY. Ted and I have written many songs together over the past year or so, as the Lord gives Ted the words to poems, some of which become songs as He gives me the music. Ted and his wife Eleanor have become dear friends for my and my wife Brenda.

I won't go into all the details at this time, but I just want to thank God for all He is doing! May He be praised, and may people be drawn to Him to receive His love, forgiveness and grace. Until next time, take care of yourselves, and take care of each other!


About a week ago the guys and I started work on a our first ever CD project tpgether as a band. Now, Dana and I played in at least 3 secular bands over the years, including "Travelin'" and "Sensation", starting way back in the mid-70s. We played in bars, night clubs and for lots of wedding receptions and parties in the Glens Falls and Lake George area, but who would have ever thought back then that we'd be recording a Christian CD together now? Isn't God great? We never know where He will take us or how He will use us, but we can be sure that what He does in us and through us will be good. He's now using the gifts and talents that He developed in us back then to be a blessing to people (and each other) now.

I can't wait for this new CD to be done. As of now, (about Sept. 28) we're almost done recording the drum parts. We've rented space to use for a studio for a month in order to have space to set up and record Dana's drum parts and whatever other parts we can get done in that time. The we'll set the studio equipment back up in my house here at 17 Fairview Street, and Jack and I will record our vocal, keyboard and guitar parts. We hope to have it done and ready by Christmas, or shortly after the first of the year.

A thought for today: May we always remember just enough of the darkness that it makes us thankful for the Light.

Just thinking.....when I start thinking about my troubles, when the issues seem to take over my thoughts and life, if can just get my attention, my eyes, back on Jesus.......all the other stuff just seems to sink below me, and I rise above the storm. They that wait upon the Lord SHALL renew their strength.

Well, friends, I have been to the mountaintop, and I can tell you it’s a glorious experience! Denver, CO is “The Mile-High City”, and it is really something to behold. Located in the Rockies, with snow-capped mountains in view, it’s quite a place.
