Raised from the Dead!!

A few months ago I requested prayer for my brother and husband who had been dx w/CHF in Oct 2013. I want to give an update.
On 3/29/14 my brother was taken to the VA but died & was blue by the time the ER staff got to the car. Doctors worked on him for 20-25 min per the ER notes. He was intubated & medication was keeping his heart & BP going. Doctors said to call family, they didn’t expect him to make it. I began reading the Word of God over him despite 3 doctors pulling me aside to explain the possibility of brain damage IF he survived. A few hrs later he began to come out of the coma to the amazement of the doctors but slipped back in. On 3/30/14 he woke from his coma with no brain damage!!! Praise to our Mighty God!! Yes, he saw the light @ the end of the tunnel but hasn’t discussed what else he saw, just said there is more. He is currently awaiting open heart surgery.
My husband died in the doctors office May 9, 2013 for 10-15 min & survived with no brain damage. A pace maker was needed but no open heart surgery. No, he did not see the light, only the tunnel. He is doing better & has returned to singing & writing songs. We are looking forward to his return to the pulpit.
There is power in the Word of God & I thank Him continually for His Miracles & Blessings!! I thank all those who prayed for both. May Blessings be poured out upon you! And I thank KSBJ for making it possible to request prayer!

Thank you

Two years ago I was diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism and had a biopsy done on my Thyroid and doctors found 6 tumors, immediately they started me on RAI treatments the worst part of my journey is during treatments I couldn’t see my kiddos. Today I am feeling so much better and never gave up faith I knew God would answer my prayers soon. Thank you God for all your blessings and for this beautiful life you’ve given me, thank you for my supportive family and friends and for my boss Daniel who didn’t fire me for missing so many work days, and to the medical staff and most of all my wonderful husband of 27 years who never complained about my laziness.
Thank you KSBJ for always playing the right song at the right time, thank you for the ksbj website and all your informative materials. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!

KSBJ fan since 1998.

Open Doors

My 74 year old father-in-law had a below the knee amputation 2 months ago, due to complications at the wound site, the surgery team’s only other option was to amputate higher.  I prayed that would God open the right doors, that HE highlight our path and that I would follow.  I would help my father-in-law any way I could. That same week, they gave us the option to be discharged and return in two weeks. I knew this two week window was our opportunity.  It has been amazing to see how many doors have opened for us.  We’ve come across great doctors, who I know were put directly into our path by HIM. And although we are still walking a narrow path, outlined with thorny bushes, I have never felt alone.  I praise God every morning for my sister who offered to drive my own children to school, so that I am able to drive my father-in-law daily to the Medical Center for therapy.  God’s work is amazing, and I feel that God will see us thru until the wound heals.  Thank you KSBJ for your uplifting messages of faith.  We listen to you daily!

In 1995 I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. At that time I had no idea what it was, how I got it or if it killed people. After doing my research on it I decided to turn this over to God, after all, it was his to handle and I decided that the best medicine I could give myself was go on and live my life to the fullest.  I can say with my total heart that I know God has taken this on himself because about 8- 10 years ago I had a minor setback where I lost my fine motor skills on my right side so I had to start writing with my left hand. I have been medicine free for many years with no relapse. WE HAVE A MIGHTY GOD THAT ANSWERS PRAYR.

Queen Kaylea

My cousin, Kaylea Sandlin, is a senior at Lincoln High School and a few months ago, the entire student body UNANIMOUSLY voted Kaylea Homecoming Queen.  We were told that this had never happened in the state of Arkansas.  Then again last weekend, Kaylea was also voted Prom Queen by the entire senior class.

This would be a great story under normal circumstances, but what makes this story even more special, is that Kaylea was born with Down Syndrome.  She has always been a vibrant and loving person, shining her light wherever she goes, just like most people with Down’s.  God’s grace is definitely seen in the lives of the students at Lincoln High School, especially this year!

Before the Homecoming Queen announcement, the entire student body kept the secret of Kaylea winning, including her twin sisters, Sarah and Lauren, who attend school with her.  This was especially hard considering that Sarah is Autistic.  For well over a week, the students said nothing.  Keeping the secret from teachers, family, community leaders, the students quietly planned for the surprise.  So, the night Kaylea won, over all the other girls, it blew everyone away, especially Kaylea!  She was just as shocked when the senior class voted her Prom Queen too!

These events have a lasting impact on Kaylea and she is even happier because of it.  The kids at school have even taken to calling her “Queen Kaylea”.  Our family is beyond thankful for the students at Lincoln High School for making Kaylea’s senior year so special and we want to thank God for blessing Kaylea with such an amazing community.

Money Comfort Zone

Last year while unemployed, God told me to turn the other cheek and withdraw my unemployment claim.  So I obeyed Him.  Two months later I was getting paperwork together to apply for food stamps.  God told me to not apply that He would provide for me.  Again I obeyed.  Three weeks later I was hired a job with benefits - something I did not have at the previous job.

I was far out of my comfort zone for money both times but God listened!  We serve an awesome Father God.

My marriage was torn apart and I was so afraid.  I turned to God and so did my husband.  I was so angry I divorced him and felt so alone.
I did not know how I was going to make it, but God supplied all my needs.  I found a wonderful group of ladies, at church, who me showed God’s love and I knew I had to forgive my husband. He was released from prison and I called him a year ago Christmas and saw what God had done in him.  We soon knew that coming back together was what God wanted. This past weekend we were remarried.  There is no place you can go that God can’t reach you and heal you if you let him. My husband now has a great job, there are people who will hire you if you get straight with God. I hope this story can help someone who is struggling.  God can take your mess and turn it into a message. The song that impacted me was Josh Wilson - Dark Before the Morning.

Israel Tour

When my husband first asked me to join him on the tour I did not want to go.  I had never desired to travel out of America. Also, I have arthritis and am in constant pain.  I actually ended up deciding on knee replacement surgery six weeks before the tour! However, I love my God and he gave me my wonderful husband, who I also love!  I wanted to make him happy do I agreed to go on the tour with him. Although it was hard physically each day, the blessings far outweighed the pain. Glory to God! When I read the word now, it is more real to me than ever before. God is alive and in me.  Praise His holy name.

Love in the classroom

During the love that sticks opportunity, I put a simple “twist” on the sticky note tradition, to fit the needs of my classroom. So, instead of writing sticky notes, the students were to write compliments to each other on note cards and pass them out. The student that gave the most compliments (to different people) would receive a free dress pass (we are a private school and require uniforms, so this is a big deal grin.

You should have been there! My boys were handing out notes like crazy…complimenting each other on handwriting, attitude, clothes, character, and much, much more! My girls were writing sweet notes as well and everyone participated. It was amazing and for a week the room was filled with kids wanting to complete their assignments early and come in from recess to “write compliments”.

Truly, love was in the air…but that’s not it! Just when I thought this “God-idea” was done, I was lead to instruct the kids to save their love notes and whenever they had a bad day, they could get their bag of love and remind themselves of how much they are loved by their friends (even when the friend was not being so friendly).

This is beautiful! You see, I teach in an International community, where over 42 nations are represented! Over 15 in my classroom alone and to see them on one accord, showing the love of God is always a beautiful thing:-) So even though we can’t cross some religious boundaries, we can show the love of God and there “ain’t” a thing the devil can do about it!!! Whooo-Hooo! This the key to the “locked door” in the schools…SHOW LOVE!

And just think, it is very hard for a bully to survive in this type of environment because we would have just loved him/her to death:-)

In closing, thank you for allowing me to share. Thank you for the wonderful programs you all provide for Houston and surrounding areas. My family and I love our KSBJ family very much.

God Listens!
Tanya Washington, M.Ed.
P.S. I hope your voice is better Coppelia:-) and I miss you Susan!
