Beginning

Overwhelmed by the size of my new school and all the traffic, fear gripped my heart. Had I made a mistake in coming to this school? I just wanted to go home.

Then God spoke to me through, Danny Gokey’s song, “Tell your heart to beat again.” I had just started paying attention to the radio when these words came on, “Beginning, just let that word wash over you. It’s alright now, love’s healing hands have pulled you through. So, get back up, and take step one. Leave the darkness feel the sun. Because your story’s far from over and your journey’s just begun.”

It was absolutely God whispering words of truth to my heart. Because, he doesn’t call the qualified, he qualifies the called.

Reaching Kenya

I felt the Lord put Africa in my heart over and over, and not knowing where to start I remembered an interview I had heard on KSBJ with a lady from Houston (Jane Gravis). She had started an orphanage in Kenya and I knew we shared the same passion. I contacted her and told her I heard her on the radio…that was thirteen years ago. Due to that connection I am now a full time missionary in Kenya running International Treasure House Ministries out of Katy, Texas, with our focus on Kenya.

Our mission statement is “To rescue and equip orphans and destitute children”.  We started our non-profit 20 years ago. (www.ithministries.org) Our main work was in Romania until the Lord led me back to the states for a few years. When God placed Africa in my heart, He used the interview on KSBJ as a starting point to work in Kenya.  In Kenya I met my husband and had our son.

Thank you KSBJ for launching us out for the king and His Kingdom.

Give Him all the Glory

3 years ago my wife and I found San Jacinto Church in Deer Park, Texas and it has completely changed our walk with the Lord. KSBJ has played a huge role in this transformation along with the blessings and the words of Pastor David Graham and his wife Nichole Graham. We are so blessed by the ministry of KSBJ and we give all the glory to God for the blessings and renewed faith. We are raising our daughter in the ways of the Lord!

God Provides

My husband and I are going through some financial issues. I asked him if we had $200 so I could go to the grocery store to get some food for our family of 6. He said I don’t know, and I knew he was trying to say no. I was really sad and depressed after that and decided to check the mail. In our mail was an envelope from our cable company. They were thanking us for being a valued customer and sent us a Visa gift card for $200! It was the exact amount I needed! After thanking God several times, I went to get groceries.

Overcomer!

My name is Karen, and I have something called health anxiety. It gets bad to the point where I can’t eat or sleep for days. I had to go through a few health-related tests and I was so scared, and I felt so very much alone. I didn’t know what the outcome would be and I didn’t know what to do other than fret over the “what if"s.

On my way to the doctor’s office, I turned on KSBJ and Mandisa’s song “Overcomer” came on. And right then I knew God was sending me comfort. I prayed in the car before going in, and I had so much peace. My results came back perfect! And I knew God had listened to my prayers. Praise God! The Name above all names.

Overcoming Grief

Since last year I have felt lost in the midst of my mom’s passing.  She passed away last year in April from complications of the disease called Lupus.  For awhile, I have been consumed with the grief.  This year, I am happy to report I am doing much better. While I still miss my mother, I know she is safe in the Father’s arms and no longer in pain.  My only regret is allowing myself to fall into such sadness.  For now I realize, I will see her again, and everything I endure will have been worth it.

To God be the Glory

My name is Connie B. I’m almost 60 years old. I gave my life to Christ as a young teen, at a place called The Peacemaker in Cloverleaf, TX. Unfortunately my life took many twists and turns after that, so I never fully surrendered my life. But God was always with me. Over the past 3 yrs I have grown much closer, and stronger in my faith, and my daily walk with Jesus. I have rededicated my life to Christ. The most wonderful blessing of all was getting on my knees with my 15yr old grandson and leading him in a prayer of acceptance of Jesus as his Lord & Savior! I have had custody of this child since age 4 and he and his younger brother are such a blessing in my life. To God be the glory!

A new liver - a new life

My son has been ill with End Stage Liver Disease for almost 8 years and was managing well… but in January 2017 he fell critically ill and I was told he had “3-6 months to live” and needed a liver transplant and then the doctor said “oh yeah and you better have good insurance because this is a Million Dollar surgery”!  I had heard the stories of waiting for months and even years on a transplant list, and I knew my son didn’t have that much time. I also knew that I didn’t have a million dollars to pay for the surgery. My son was already out of work (too ill) and had only a basic policy. I only hoped it would cover some of the cost.

This is when I began to pray constantly. My son and I prayed over the phone and in person every single day. We asked some simple things of God: (1) please heal him (heal this disease, provide the new liver, etc) and (2) please work financial miracles to allow us to pay for this transplant and the life-long expensive medications he must take.

Today, I stand amazed in His presence (to borrow words from a great song). My son was medically managed for a few months to get him strong enough to withstand the surgery and give him his best chance.  Then he was placed on the UNOS Transplant list on June 21st. We received a phone call on June 25th that his surgeon had a donor liver.  4 DAYS IS AN AMAZING TESTAMENT TO GOD’S PLAN!!

Also, during the evaluation period (2 weeks prior to being placed on the list), we met with the Financial Counselor who said “Yes, his insurance covers the transplant and by the way… you have NO out of pocket maximums and you have NO lifetime or transplant maximums.  Also, you’ve already met this year’s maximum out of pocket, so there are no more co-pays this year.”

God had heard my prayers and exceeded my expectations. (Of course He did - That’s how God works)  My son is doing great today (10 days post transplant). He’s home, walking around, smiling and feeling stronger and better every single day.  It’s hard to mentally understand that he no longer has liver disease!!  The old liver is gone and his new one is perfectly healthy in every way!!  We both know that this is God’s work, and we give Him the praise and all the credit for what’s happened in His life.

My son also says that he knows God kept him here for a reason and he wants to use his story and his life in a positive way to speak to others and give them hope, and to lead them to Christ. Please pray for his continued healing and good health, and pray that he finds how God wants to use him now.

Beauty for Ashes

After my daughter was born, I began having repressed memories of childhood trauma come back in the form of flashbacks and body memories.  It has taken years of therapy and God’s strength to get me to the other side and allow me to heal.  KSBJ was always there to encourage me as well.  Voice of Truth and Overcomer have been my anthems in the darkest times.  God has blessed me with what I thought might never be possible.  He has given me the Beauty for my ashes.  Evil meant to harm and destroy me, but GOD gave me refuge and strength and love and joy.  I give HIS holy and powerful name all the glory.

Jehovah Rapha

I turned my radio on last Tuesday and realized Sharathon has started and I felt this ardent desire to volunteer.  So after a late volunteer registration with a follow-up e-mail to Steven, Volunteer Coordinator,  it would be by God’s grace that I would be accepted. A few hours later, voila, I received an acceptance e-mail back and I’m a Sharathon volunteer for the first time ever this year (although it has been my desire for many years past)!

Wednesday morning came and I started having shoulder pain. I told the devil that if this his way of stopping me, to forget it as I strongly intend to go even with the possibility of bad weather brewing.. Pain patch in the morning while getting ready to go; a silent prayer to the Holy Spirit for me to remember what we were told during midday phone volunteer training and not to be overwhelmed; an Advil in the early afternoon and I got through my shift happy and tired by the time I got home. I slept well without waking up in the middle of that night. 

Just before Prayathon volunteer duty started Wednesday mid-morning, my shoulder pain started aching and I twice thought of taking Advil but didn’t. I was at first intimidated by how the Prayathon was going to be done, each one leading a prayer, as it was my first time in this kind of event but I just left it in the hands of the Holy Spirit.  We prayed intensely for several hours for all the listed intentions and I was able to raise my arms up to God several times. I was exhausted after the session and had to sit for a while in the lobby before driving my almost hour-long drive back home. Later cooked, washed dishes and several heavy pots/pans from yesterday and today. It is now 10:10 pm and I do not have any shoulder pain. Thank you JESUS and HOLY SPIRIT that my pain went away and for not having any anxiety attack and for confirming to me I am employable!!  You see, I haven’t worked in the past 10 months due to anxiety, short term memory issues, being easily distracted, multiple joint, muscle problems, fear and uncertainty. Meanwhile, I have grown to know Jesus more during that time and the verse: “You will know the Truth and the Truth will set you free” and the verse,  ‘I am the Way, the Truth and the Life’’ now hold such deeper meanings. 

Thank you DEAR GOD for KSBJ and all the wonderful and supportive people, staff and volunteers, I met these past 2 days smile Thank you guardian angel for doing such a great job watching over me and keeping me safe. In everything, to GOD BE THE GLORY!!!
