3 Years and Counting

I took the 30 Day Challenge 3 years ago, and have been listening ever since. I rarely listen to anything but gospel music. It feeds my souls and reminds me that He is always as close as a whispered prayer!

Taking KSBJ With Me!

Due to an unwanted and unexpected divorce, I moved from Houston, where I fell in love with KSBJ, to Nevada. I left my 21-year-old son, several good friends, and I thought I was leaving my friends at KSBJ!
But I’m glad to say I was so wrong! You guys are with me, still reminding me that “God Listens” each and every day!!

Victory: My 30 Day Challenge

Victory on the 30 Day Challenge is easy since KSBJ plays such wonderful inspirational music. As I stated above, KSBJ has me “hooked”. I find so much Joy in the music and the DJs, and the traffic reports are great. The “Whole Enchilada”, so to speak. You can’t beat it.

I do Volunteer work 4+ Days a week with Seniors, and I try to give them the message of KSBJ. music.

A Vision From JESUS During Harvey Hurricane

I was watching TV the day of Hurricane Harvey. People being rescued and with the water high on their waist. I closed my eyes to pray for them, and I saw JESUS in a vision. He was looking at everything that was happening and He had His hands on His head walking from one side to the other one. He looked like He was suffering. After that I saw the ground… it was dark soil. Very rich and perfectly clean. Like it was fresh. immediately after I saw the soil I saw beautiful little plants with flowers coming up from the soil. That was my vision!

I totally got the meaning of the vision. What it means is “JESUS was suffering, He was aware of all this catastrophe, but He had to let it happen so people will plant seeds of helping each other. He showed me that those seeds will bring flowers (blessings) to the people of Houston and all areas that were affected by Hurricane Harvey.

I thought to share it before but I didn’t do it. I want to do it because I believe JESUS wants me to share what He has given me as a Revelation. God Bless you all abundantly!

God Answered Our Prayers

On Monday, my friend James thought he was going back to jail and possibly prison, because someone failed to change his personal information back in 2013. The fear was so horrible as all he and his wife could think on Monday night, was that their entire world they have been building, living to serve God, was about to vanish.

I got on my knees and prayed so hard for this man that is seeking true justice for what happened to him as a minor when he was unjustly convicted. I prayed for their hard work not to vanish because of someone else’s mistake. I asked God to allow understanding and much mercy for the error of someone else to be brought to the light.

I wept so hard on bended knees and prayed harder than I have prayed in a long time for a MIRACLE. On Tuesday at 9:36 AM, God answered our prayers. All things were cleared up and made right. God is slowly helping him find the right people to help him seek truth and justice for his injustice. God has changed this man from being the most hated man in prison to the most tender, loving and God fearing man that he has become today. He is still working on the rough edges to become a Diamond for the Lord to serve Him one day full-time with his wife by his side. Thank You, God for the miracle that was granted to James and his wife. Although many do not see past James’ past and unjust conviction, God and a few others see him as one of God’s sons that has been restored back to be an example and plant seeds. We now pray that God will open the doors wide open for justice to be sought, and for his deliverance to help others one day see that God loves all - even with burdens as heavy as James’.

My First Job

On my way to my job interview for Chick-fil-A, I was really anxious and nervous. As I listened to KSBJ in the parking lot, the song “Just Breathe” came on and it made me feel so much better. I had confidence in myself. On December 24th, I got accepted to work for Chick-fil-A. I’ve done my training hours and it was amazingly surprisingly fun, Thank you KSBJ for playing the songs at the right time when I’m not feeling good, or when I just need a song to lighten me up. Your station helps me through my day and so much more. God listens always.

I am grateful for the songs that say I am not less than God. I am doing just fine. My journey to sobriety has been truthful and honest. I struggle a lot, but I know when I do, God is with me. Certain songs about protection silence my thoughts.

The Joy Pledge Is So Much More

On August 26th, 2017, Hurricane Harvey busted through. I sat at a window on the 10th floor of the hospital in Galveston. Doctors had just told me my husband only had a few more days, but within a couple hours, he was gone. He had stage 4 lung cancer. There I was, alone and trapped at the hospital. I called my daughter to tell her about her dad, and she said they were going to drive the 60 miles to come get me. The depression hit me hard. Every day was harder than the day before. The holidays were quickly approaching and I had NO joy. I continued to listen to KSBJ as it was the only comfort I felt.

Then they started the Joy Pledge. It angered me. How could I feel joy? My husband of 41 years was gone, money tight, bills mounting up, nothing was going right. Over and over again I’d hear “I choose joy…’. Suddenly it started to sink in. I cranked up the Christmas music on KSBJ as I baked some Christmas cookies for some friends. Next thing I know, I’m dancing to the music (I don’t dance) - I felt joy. I was reciting the pledge along with the radio. For the first time in months I felt happiness, joy and hope. Thank you KSBJ for pounding that pledge into my head. It broke through my darkness. I believe I’m going to be just fine now.

I Choose Joy

My love and I were married two days after Christmas in my little white home church. The church was beautifully decorated for Christmas, and two huge white poinsettias had been added for the ceremony. As we left the church as husband and wife, those gathered sang “Joy to the World”. Seeking joy, that song became part of our marriage’s legacy. After 28 years together, my love began arduous treatments for a rare and aggressive cancer. The challenges were horrendous. One day she said to me, “Am I crazy? I am so happy.” With the help of her prayer circle, she had found joy in her circumstances. We even closed her memorial service by singing “Joy to the World”.

The grief process was hard and lonely. When “Joy to the World” was played at church, tears streamed down my face as I silently praised God for my marriage. I learned that you CAN feel joy with a broken heart. Through prayer, support, and counseling I have a new and joyful life. The joy challenge is a blessing to me because it helps me keep my eyes on Jesus. Last night I sang “Joy to the World” with my heart full of thanksgiving.

Prisoner for Christ

My name is James. Words cannot describe the fear and sadness I was lost in. In complete bondage to fear and addiction, afraid of everything and using drugs, I was arrested for about the 30 something time for drug possession. In September 2016 I was sentenced to a 1 year drug treatment prison facility in Missouri called Ozark Correctional Center; a Gateway Foundation intense long term therapeutic community collegiate model drug treatment camp. I was 33 years old. I suffered from anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts, and turned to drugs for comfort at a young age.

I desired change, but for 33 years I could not escape the grips of satan. I prayed to God for help. I prayed to God for death. I wanted my life to end desperately.

Before I was sentenced to this facility, I spent 14 months in God’s Word in jail in Texas and Missouri. Along with these preachings, I got a hold of a book called “From Faith to Faith” by Kenneth Copeland and a Bible. Rather than conform to what others were doing, I stood alone and I sought God with my whole heart. I applied the teaching in the Word to my life with genuine obedience. The Word began to take root in my Spirit and I began to grow. I continued to seek, I continued to be taught, I continued to be an example, I continued to encourage others, I continued to pray for people that would spit at me, and swing fists at my face. I ignored the naysayers as I walked alone as a quiet witness in places where people were afraid to walk alone. Little did I know God was about to show up…

On December 3rd 2016, in OCC in Fordland, Missouri, I walked up to the Chapel because I was trying to get a DOC Job there. I walked into a full Chapel and sat in the back row as the band “Bert Smith and The Walk” played and “Sons of Thunder Ministries” stood by a few chairs imitating an altar. One of the Chapel Clerks sitting behind the desk walked up to me and grabbed my hand and led me to the altar. There was a visiting preacher named Josh who I had never met before. He looked at me and said, “Do you have anything you’d like to pray to God for?” I said shyly, “I don’t know, he brought me up here”, pointing to my friend who brought me up there. He said, “Well what do you want ask God?” I said, “Well, I want to make this chapel a more loving environment than it is (being a prison chapel) but I lack the courage to talk to people really.” He said, “Alright James, (reading my DOC name tag) we’re going to pray for boldness”.

As we knelt to pray, as if I was hit by an anvil, I was knocked to my face as I felt this tremendous pressure pushing my face to the floor as tears began to fall. I couldn’t lift my head but my nose never touched the ground. As Josh is praying with his hand on my shoulder he begins laughing uncontrollably while he’s praying things that only God could know. As he’s praying, being steadily interrupted by his own loud joy-filled laughter, I felt this intense tugging from the pits of my stomach. I felt as if I were “heaving” tears as my gut wrenched and my face felt as if something was pulling me. (I remember trying to hold back because I didn’t want to cry in Prison but the tugging/wrenching continued harder and harder. This continued for maybe a full minute or so. (I also had bruises on my knees from the weight pushing me into the floor) I stood up, in tears still overcome with “Joy” is the only way I can describe it in the natural. Josh stood up, in tears. I looked at him smiling and crying and said, “Thank you, whoever you are.” He says, with a smile on his face and tears falling from his eyes, “THAT’S THE POWER OF GOD MAN!” Everyone in the room was in awe as the Spirit of God filled the room. I stood worshiping with my hands to the sky smiling and crying, just praising God.

He then walks over to me and says, “The Holy Spirit is about to leave, you may feel a jolt.” I felt this intense feeling of tears and sadness for just a second as I said “Please No.” He said Don’t worry James, He said I will never leave you nor forsake you, now every time you read your bible and pray He will return. The Lord is zealous with you, I want you to read Acts Chapter 2.” As the service is now ending, he shakes my hand and he says “Get Ready”...

As I leave the service I am filled with what I can only describe as “Joy” in the natural. This was not a feeling. This was a very strong presence. It affected everyone around me. I go to a service next door, and as I’m sitting at a small bible study table, my eyes suddenly get very heavy and im blinking because they kinda hurt. Suddenly, something overwhelms me and causes me to look around the room. I look into a sea of people and I see a bunch of lost children through eyes of compassion. I can’t sit still at this point, I felt complete purpose. As I looked from one person to the next it was as if they had crosshairs on them and something like a tractor beam was drawing me from one individual to the next. (I don’t speak unless spoken to, I walk around with blinders on so to speak, so this feeling is not of my own will). I then felt God’s pleasure with some, and compassion and empathy for others. When someone made me laugh, I remember feeling, “God is pleased with this character, this personality, this is one of his children who creates laughter and joy for others.” When someone was hurting, I could see it and feel it, and I wanted to help them. I also saw demons manifest in the eyes and faces of some and others my presence just made them smile.

As I head back to my living quarters, (imagine a barracks; people hanging out talking, cards, etc.) I get up on my bunk, and I remember feeling this peace unlike ever before. My mind was clear, focused, no rushing thoughts, blank, with songs of worship 24 hours a day in my inner Spirit (and it’s been like this ever since). As I close my eyes to pray, I see a man in the blacks of my eye lids. As if a lit sparkler traced the night sky, I see a man with long hair and a robe…Applauding.

It was Jesus.

I still don’t fully understand what happened to me that day, but I know I don’t need to. Im just thankful to be given vision and focus, and a chance to enjoy my future. I will just continue to seek Him and walk with Him and try to be my best. I no longer have to let feelings of defeat or my senstive emotions get me down to the point of giving up ever again. I have hope.. And that is means everything.

I was released yesterday, Nov. 27th from OCC Long Term Treatment Prison. This experience happened 1 year ago. I live in Houston, Texas and I am currently looking for a church to get involved with in or around the Northwest Houston/Cypress area. If anyone knows where I can get involved and grow I would sure appreciate any help/advice. Thank you smile

- James
