God extinguished a fire with his fingertips

My name is Maria and I live in Columbus, Texas and my son Chris lives in Rockport, Texas. He called me this morning to say he was getting ready for work.  When he got out of the shower his house was full of smoke. He quickly looked around and found flames coming out of the roof.  He called 911 and the fire dept arrived 10 minutes later.  They extinguished the fire and the Fire Chief told my son they could not determine the cause of the fire.  He continued to tell my son that he doesn’t understand how his mobile home did not go up in flames.  In all his career he’s never seen a mobile home with that amount of flames coming out of it and not totally being engulfed in flames.  So many things that could have happened didn’t.  It didn’t happen while he was asleep, which the smoke would have probably killed him .  It didn’t happen while he was at work and was at home to call for help.  The good Lord was definitely looking out for my son.  As a mother feeling totally helpless not being able to help I turned to God and prayed that he would save my son’s home.  That He had the power to extinguish the flames with his fingertips ...and he did.  I want to tell my story to let everyone know that God does listen and there is power in prayer.

GOD IS FAITHFUL

ON 7/2011, I WAS 8 MONTHS PREGNANT I WAS TOLD I WAS HIGH RISK AND DURING DELIVERY A CARDIAC ARREST TEAM WAS GOING TO BE CONSIDERED. I GOT SAD, FOR A MOMENT, BUT THEN SAID LORD YOU ARE IN CONTROL, LATER THAT AFTERNOON, I TOLD MY HUSBAND IF IT WAS OK TO GO TO THE MALL AND WALK AROUND DISTRACT MYSELF AND EVEN BUY ME SOME SANDLES. SO WE HEADED TO BAYTOWN SAN JACINTO MALL. FROM ALL THE STORES IN A MALL, I WENT IN TO PAYLESS smile WHILE I WAS IN THE STORE LOOKING, SUDDENLY, 2 GIRLS AGES 10-12 APPROACHED ME AND SAID” EXCUSE ME MAAM, WOULD YOU LIKE FOR US TO PRAY FOR YOU, WE ARE FROM A CHURCH YOUTH MINISTRY AND WE ARE PRAYING FOR PEOPLE WHO NEEDS PRAYER. THE EYES OF THESE GIRLS WERE SO CONVEYING OF ASSURANCE OF GOD FAITHFULNESS.” I FELT LIKE THE LORD WAS TELLING ME ASK AND YOU SHALL RECEIVE YOUR MIRACLE THRU THESE BEAUTIFUL LITTLE GIRLS. I SAID, “OF COURSE. WE CAN PRAY FOR MY FUTURE BABY DUE PRETTY SOON, THAT HE BE A HEALTHY BABY”. I DIDN’T FEEL NO SHAME, THE GIRLS EXTENDED THEIR HANDS TOWARDS ME. WE HELD HANDS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE AISLE NOT THINKING WHO WAS AROUND ME, LOOKING OR WHAT EVER. WHAT I KNEW WAS THAT THE LORD WAS THERE, TELLING ME THRU THESE PRAYER WARRIORS THAT HE WAS IN CONTROL, NOT TO BE AFRAID. I THANKED THE GIRLS, AS THEY WERE LEAVING, I HEARD THEM EXCITEDLY TELLING THEIR YOUTH PASTOR, ; WE GOT ONE, WE PRAYED FOR SOMEBODY. THEY WERE EXCITED AND HAPPY FOR THE JOB THEY HAD ACCOMPLISHED. PRAISE THE LORD FOR THESE BEAUTIFUL GIRLS. AFTER I LEFT THE STORE, I FELT SO LIGHT, AND CONVINCED THAT EVERYTHING WAS GOING TO BE ALRIGHT. AFTER PREVIOUS MISCARRIAGES, I WAS AFRAID TO PURCHASE BABY FURNITURE, CLOTHES ETC.FOR MY PRESENT PREGNANCY, WELL AFTER PRAYING WITH THE YOUNG PRAYER WARRIORS, I TOLD MY HUSBAND TAKE YOUR CREDIT CARD OUT. WE ARE GOING SHOPPING FOR OUR BABY… MY FAITH GREW TO A DIFFERENT LEVEL. IN THE MIST OF TROUBLE, I MUST STAND STILL AND BELIEVE WITH OUT DOUBTING,  IN OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST. THE STORY CONTINUES, I HAD MY SON , SAMUEL 8LBS, WE WERE IN INTENSIVE CARE, BUT WERE STABLE AND DOING WELL. I CONTINUE TO PUT MY TRUST IN HIM COMPLETELY. THAT SAME DAY I DELIVER EDMY SON, LATER THAT EVENING, MY HUSBAND TELLS ME THAT HE WAS GOING HOME TO REFRESH A LITTLE, ALONG WITH MY 3YRS OLD SON. WELL, ON THE WAY HOME, MY HUSBAND HAS AN CAR ACCIDENT, MY HUSBAND VEHICLE FLIPPED OVER THREE TIMES ON THE FREEWAY. I DIDN’T KNOW ANYTHING UNTIL THE NEXT DAY, MY REACTION WAS OMG, MY SON, MY HUSBAND, ARE THEY OK. I HAD TO BE STRONG, VERY STRONG,, AND PUT MY EMOTIONS TO THE SIDE AND TRUST IN GOD COMPLETELY . MY LITTLE BOY, ISAAC WALKED AWAY FROM THE SCENE WITH NO MAJOR INJURIES, A LITTLE BRUISE ON HIS CHEEK,  MY HUSBAND WAS HOSPITALIZED,  HOWEVER, WAS STABLE AND RECOVERING. I PRAISE GOD FOR HE IS GOOD, MY FAITH WAS PUT TO ACTION IN THE MIDDLE OF TROUBLE, I COULD SAY THAT WE HAD THE VICTORY IN JESUS CHRIST. AMEN,

Blessings

I just wanted to take a moment to praise God for the great things he is doing for my family and I. I used to work a full time and part time job. I’ve been working part time only with a few side jobs this year and thankfully God keeps providing for us. Every time I get a little worried about not having enough money a side job comes in. I am just amazed at his timing and blessings. Thank you KSBJ for helping me keep up the faith and grow closer to GOD! I try not to worry because I know he will provide for us but sometimes I let my emotions get the best of me. I know I’m not strong enough but that he is strong enough for me! Thanks!

Change Your Focus

Bumper to bumper traffic, people cutting you off after you have waited for ten minutes to get to the off ramp, people using the access ramps to pass you and cut in front of you, four lanes of traffic just sitting on a turnpike for what appears to be no reason at all when you are late to work, traffic in Houston will test your self control but then you turn on KSBJ and you hear God speak to you through song and your focus changes.  Soon the traffic starts moving again and then you find you are parked in front of your work wanting to stay in your car just until this last song finishes.  God bless KSBJ, those who work there and those that make it possible.

Saved by God

On Monday, April 26th, 2015 (just a few days ago) I was on my way to work and was taking curve when I passed a semi. As I was passing, my car lurched towards the semi, about to go under the trailer. I swerved to the right and lost control of my car. As I went into the ditch I remember thinking that this was it- I wasn’t wearing my seat belt, and there was a line of trees directly ahead of me. Suddenly I hit the bank of the ditch and my car was airborne. I shut my eyes as the impact happened, but when I stopped, I realized not only was I still alive, I could still move. Some people who saw the crash rushed over, pried open my passenger door and helped me out of my vehicle, calling the paramedics to take me to the hospital. Everybody was saying I was incredibly lucky, but I was so stunned and in shock I didn’t realize why.

The next day, my grandfather and I went to get my car from the tow yard. As we walked up to my car it dawned on me just how blessed I was. My entire front end was destroyed. Apparently the car had been stopped by two trees the exact distance apart as the width of my car. I had launched at such a perfect angle that these two trees caught my car in mid air, keeping me from ramming a third, even bigger tree head on. The only thing I could think was how truly blessed I was, and how God must have guided my car to the one safe spot that ensure my survival.

Today, I am back at work, banged up, but alive. While my car is destroyed, I am blessed to be alive to tell my story, and how God saved me from certain tragedy. This is an incident that gives me even more reason to be thankful for the grace of God, and looking forward to the blessings of the future.

Elijah a gift from my father

Now it makes sense that every person, every thing happened in my life were for a reason.. We have been married for 21 years and were unsuccessful in having a baby, we decided to try IVF and after 1st try we ran out of $. Right after the 1st fail I got a job offer at Texas Children’s where at the time I didn’t know pays for IVF up to 20k, during this time I was in the internet and saw this information, well of course after seeing this I took the job. I thought it was God wanting me to do this and he did , but not for the reason I thought. I took the job, and once again the IVF failed, we were heart broken, but I kept my faith. The job I took will take in a lot of children with superior health well. I did not know this meant foster children. Even through I am extremely shy I wanted more and more information. One day I told my husband lets do this, I feel this is the reason God put me in this job, so we did, even though his family was against it. God put people in my life that were close to him and talked to me about him, so I kept getting closer to God. We finished all the required classes and on my birthday I received a paper saying we did qualify and got our licence… On my mother-in-laws birthday, a person who was against us doing this,  we received Elijah, a 7 day old baby.. and it just happens that my sons birthday is the same day my mother-in-laws mother and brother who are now in heaven with God is… That made her love him even more…. We have had Elijah in our lives 13 month now and I would not change dose days for nothing, he is the light of our home, my life, my reason to get up every morning, everything he does is so special and I thank God every day for him, everyday… Thank you for praying for us when we thought we were about to lose him and it has been a rocky and emotional road, but all worth it….We still have not adopted him, but are in the process… God is amazing, because now I see why he put people in our lives… I feel so blessed… I have no words to describe this feelings and how grateful I am to our father in heaven… and to you and your prayer volunteers.

Caleb Abrahm

I am so encouraged by KSBJ… This is my testimony , my son CALEB when he was 2yrs old out of the blue he started a seizure with no fever and no cause so we were so panicked , but in all this I heard Gods voice saying; “Don’t Fear”
Caleb was diagnosed with EPLILEPSY , We were so broken and did not know why all this happened. We are such strong believers of our Faith in Christ . I had all these “WHYS”; that I kept asking God . One day when I was driving I heard this song “VOICE OF TRUTH” .. in the beginning I could not hear the full song because I was so overwhelmed by grief. With tears rolling down my face I pulled over and just burst out in tears. All I could hear from this song was ” this is for my Glory, this is for my Glory” .These words kept coming to my mind time and again . I came home and looked up this song to see what did it mean….......when I heard the full song I was so touched and I knew that GOD has a purpose in this situation , I surrendered it and said “God now you take over” . Caleb is on medication , all test are negative medically nothing can be found, I know it’s spiritual,  God spoke to me saying :“IN HIS TIME HE WILL MAKE ALL THINGS BEAUTIFUL”.
  It has not been easy ever since , but now he is 6yrs old doing so much better .. he has not had a seizure in 5yrs thanks to my Heavenly father. He still struggles with school but I know God will make a way for him, I happened to read about Mark Hall and his childhood and realized why God wanted me to hear that Particular song, because that’s what my Caleb went through too .. God bless Casting Crowns .
Thank you KSBJ every time I feel low in spirit about CALEB , God will always Play ” VOICE OF TRUTH ” for me reminding me that he has it in His plan .

God Outsmarts the Doctors!

I have rare and severe Crohn’s disease that affects my stomach and makes it difficult and painful to eat among many other challenging symptoms.  BUT, I am completely blessed to have amazing family and friends that pray for me on a regular basis.

I have been to doctors all over the US with the last two doctors telling me that they are amazed at how good I look on the outside because most people with the severity of illness that I have are completely debilitated and in a wheelchair.

I do have hard days, but I am a mom to 3 young boys, I own my own stationery business and I even get to play tennis once or twice a week.  I am so grateful for every day without pain and for every moment I get with my kids because I KNOW that all those prayers are completely sustaining me and my family. 

Despite the struggles I have with my health, my amazing husband and I have grown in our marriage, in our faith and our priorities have truly changed.  We are grateful for even a day without pain, for good health and words cannot express the gratitude for the friends and family that pray for us and who put us on prayer lists all over the country.  We are blessed beyond measure.  God is good.  ALL the time.

new friend believer

One day I was reading the bible and I had a friend come up to me ask what I was reading and I said the bible. I asked her does she know God and she said no and that is when I talked to her about God and what he did for us. Me and her talked about God for three days straight and then a day later she came to me and said I want to become a Christian. So after we prayed that day I said come with me to church and learn more. After all the praying and talking we did she came to know the Lord, our savior, at school.  She now comes to church every Sunday. One week later she got baptized.
