Believe

I have been battling Shingles for 7 weeks now and going through medications that my system cannot handle, and being sick from those. Last week they took me off all the medications to help the nerve pain. I prayed to God some more and told him that I believed he would heal the nerves and relieve me of my pain, which he has in just a week! I have a little discomfort but nothing like it was. I am now trying to get over the insomnia caused by being so stressed over the pain and the medications. I also have turned to God and asked him to help me sleep without medication assistance.


As I was driving to work and praying the song We Believe was also running through my head. I had not been listening much to KSBJ in the past week or so or anything on the radio for that matter. I turned to KSBJ right after I finished praying and guess what was playing…We Believe! God always answers if we can just have patience. Praise be to God!!

Change

My name is Kristie. I have been clean from drugs for three years and I just moved my twin sister Kirstie here from Tennessee. She was in a really bad relationship for two years. She told me last night when we got done talking she wants to give her life to Jesus Christ too!

Flood of Love

Monday, April 18th, I was headed to work in Houston. I noticed that the thunderstorm the night before had laid out the rain pretty bad and was driving extra careful. Just as I was passing Beltway 8, I heard on the radio that I-10 was shut down and that was the road I took to get work. So I hopped off the freeway only to see that the feeder was starting to flood. I turned into a neighborhood in hopes of going North to get on a freeway. But the water was too deep to pass through, even in my truck, so I turned left to go south. The water was quickly rising and I needed to get to higher ground. I headed back to the highway only to pull over at a storage unit where other trucks had gathered. I called my family and my boyfriend to let them know I was okay but it looked like I would be there for a while. My boyfriend, being as brave as he is, told his boss he was going on a rescue mission to come get me, but he had a Mustang and didn’t know anyone with a truck.


With nothing but God to lean on, I group messaged everyone and told them I was letting God take control and shut my phone off. With nothing to do I opened my Bible and started reading Genesis 1. I cried until I fell asleep and woke up when I noticed I had to go to the bathroom. I had been sitting there from 7:30 - 11:45. Just as I was about to start walking, I heard a knock on my window. Not sure what to expect, I looked up and saw my parents holding a bag with rain boots, a hoodie, and some rain shunts in them. We walked about half a mile North where a family friend’s truck sat waiting for us. We drove home in a short amount of time and I have never felt my prayers answered more than that day, when my parent’s flood of love for me, outweighed the flood I was trapped in!

My Difference

KBSJ has impacted my life and my daughter’s lives. We listen to the station on the way to my job. My daughters love the songs they play, and we sing loud!


Listening to KBSJ puts love and compassion in my heart and I can share it with my coworkers and patients. So thank you for the best radio station!


Blessings always…a loyal listener.

Miracles

This past week I have witnessed 2 more miracles. The first one, a man who couldn’t eat or drink (being nourished by a tube in his stomach) ate 5 (!) teaspoons of ice without choking or any problems! Ice Cream here he comes!!


The second one, an older lady will be able to see via eye surgery (cataracts have left her almost blind and her family didn’t know if she was a good surgical candidate). Her surgery is planned later this month!


We were hungry and God fed us; we were blind and He made us see! Praise be to God!!

A glimpse of grace

I work in home health as an occupational therapist.  I was working in the Tomball area, near the hospital, seeing patients in one of the assisted living facilities in the area. As I was driving to my next patient, a car drifted into my lane and was headed straight for me. It was a narrow two lane road with a steep ditch to the side. I only had seconds to make a decision to avoid a head on collision….the ditch or oncoming traffic. I swerved into oncoming traffic. Luckily no one was in that lane at that moment. I drove on a little way, furious at this other driver for nearly killing us, assuming they were probably texting. I decided to turn around to catch up to the other driver and give them a piece of my mind.


It didn’t take long to find the other driver pulled over on the side of the road. She rolled down the window and I realized it was an elderly woman and my whole demeanor changed. Visibly shaken, I asked her if she was okay. She said she was very sorry and had never done anything like that before. She was trying to get to the doctor and missed her turn. She just looked down for a minute to find her directions and when she looked up I was in front of her. She thanked me for being so nice coming back to check on her, for being such a defensive driver and doing the right thing to avoid what could have been such a terrible tragedy. I was on the verge of tears by this point.  All I could say was “hallelujah and praise God!” She told me she prays every time she gets in her car and that God was with both of us that day. We said our goodbyes and parted ways.


Later that day I was replaying the events over in my mind and thanking God for my safety. Right at that moment I looked over and saw a hand painted sign on the side of the road that said “A glimpse of grace.” I don’t know if it was the name of a business or what. I have never seen that sign on this road before. I felt a peace wash over me and I think it was God speaking to me, reminding me of His goodness, grace, and mercy. God is always with us and He loves us, but sometimes it helps to have a little reminder.

Realization of God’s great love

One night this week I was seriously considering it all, after an argument with my fiance. I am so glad I didn’t. Something absolutely awesome happened the next day. I was driving to work the next day when I had the most awesome realization about God’s love for me. He went to the cross because of His great love for each of us individually. I really am amazed that it did not hit me even twenty five years ago when I invited Jesus into my heart as my personal Lord and Savior. Easter truly has a completely new meaning to me this year.

Second Chance

This past Christmas my son wanted to watch God’s Not Dead, but I wasn’t interested in watching it. I believed in God, but at the time, I was pulling away from Him. So he and his mother sat down to watch the movie and I sat at the kitchen table working on a project. Surprisingly, the movie kept drawing me in. The movie ended and we went to bed.


I woke up early the next morning to clean out the turkey fryer and just felt compelled to put on a station my wife had been telling me about, KSBJ. As I was scrubbing the pot, I don’t know how to explain it, but something was happening inside of me. I grabbed the water hose to rinse out my brush and I was doing that and as the grime was washing off, the wind blew across my face. Immediately I knew something was happening and I felt it in my soul. I’m having trouble putting it into words, but it was as if God was telling me, “See how you’re rinsing your brush, I will rinse your doubt.”


Since that moment I have completely turned my life over to Him. I am getting my Holy Sacraments done, attending RCIA classes, and this June after 19 years of marriage I am going to marry my wife in church before God. It’s not an easy road but it’s worth it and KSBJ definitely makes the ride that much smoother. Thank y’all for letting me share and God bless.

Only God Could Do This

I was one of those in a prayer circle that wouldn’t speak prayer out loud.  God prompted me to begin a prayer group at work.  It started as a handful who gathered with me to pray for others.  We bridged the gap for others through prayer, so we call ourselves the Bridge Prayer Group.  We grew too large to meet together so I began sending out weekly devotions.  I chose a collection and published in my first devotional, “Building a Bridge One Prayer at a Time”. Churches have used this as a stepping stone for youth as well as women’s Bible study groups to get folks started in prayer groups.  I have just completed my second book, “Bridging the Gap One Prayer at a Time”.  I will be hosting a book signing in just a few days, but my book order was printed incorrectly so right now I do not have any books for the event.


The books came in last week and were printed incorrectly, leaving me with 341 books that I can’t sell.  I immediately got on the phone with the publisher that night and sent pictures to show the issue.  They began working to reprint the order.  To date, I still do not have my books.  They have assured me I will have them before the signing.  I have called, checked status, asked questions, escalated etc and still feel in limbo.  I have prayed so much over this book.  I want the Lord to connect the people to this book that He wants to read it and change their lives.  I want Him to receive the glory.  I know the Lord is telling me to trust Him.  It’s incredibly difficult to remain calm knowing you have an event planned around the books and not have books!  I presented my Pastor with his book last night.  You see, the hard covers came in perfectly as planned!  My Pastor and I had a great conversation.  When I saw my neighbors last night, we began talking about different things and “Trust the Lord” came up again.  We talked about being able to see how the Lord will use this situation to bring glory to Him through the books we can’t sell. 


We decided we are going to donate them to the troops, women’s shelter etc.  This was another great conversation where the Lord is leading me to peace.  This morning coming to work, I heard Rachelle’s sons recite the 8th resurrection egg story.  When one of them said “and Jesus died”, I began to cry.  Such emotion came over me.  I then heard several great songs on the radio, causing me to totally forget to call my husband to let him know I was on my way to work.  One song in particular was “I Trust In You”, by Lauren Daigle.  I worshipped all the way to work!  If you are struggling with trusting the Lord fully with a situation, I shared this to hopefully encourage you.  There’s nothing like the peace that only God can give us.  When you have a chance, listen to the song I mentioned.  You will be blessed.

God is on the move!

I’ve been debating about posting this for a few days now, but the excitement of how great God is is so overwhelming right now, and I feel strongly this might help someone who takes the time out to read this post. To put things as plainly and simply as I possibly can - without giving away too much information. With the weather being the way it has been lately and just this time of year can be slow for anyone who has a job that requires them to work outside - take my husband for example - you simply cannot operate a ginormous crane with high winds, rain etc. It makes taking care of your responsibilities very hard..and at times you may come to find that there’s more bills than there is money in the account. I cannot explain to anyone how I got to the place I am now with God ... but there’s definitely been times where I just wanna sit and cry and dwell on why life has to be so hard and so stressful ... that’s no way to live. I’ve asked God many times to deliver me from the things that are keeping me from growing more in my faith ... that could be stress, worry, greed etc. Although I’ve asked that, my heart still was holding on to these things I prayed about. I still wanted to be “in control”.  I’m telling you right now - when you truly let go of whatever that thing is holding you back ... the blessings just pour in. When you put all of your cares and trust in the Lord and you stay obedient to him ... it pays off. He IS listening to you - He knows all the desires of your heart, if you’ll just stop, take a moment and speak out loud. Call forth the things in your life holding you back, breaking your heart, destroying relationships etc. Call forth the things you wish to see improve in your life and speak to it as if it were already there!!


*Romans 4:17 says, “I have made you a father of many nations. He is our father in the sight of God, in whom he believed—the God who gives life to the dead and calls into being things that were.”
*Mark 11:23 says, “Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them.”


In conclusion I’m here to tell you ... God is on the move! Last week I got a large check in the mail from our energy company - which was our deposit when we moved in over a year ago. We received it for on time payments. I have been so in “awe” this week at moments being like “wow God - you are so amazing!” It couldn’t have come at a better time ... it was the exact amount we needed! He has absolutely perfect timing for everything & He will not let you fail in life ... if you allow Him into your heart..and pray for change ... it will happen. At times it may make you uncomfortable and you may have to go through some dark valleys along the way but I promise you ... God is right there along side with you every step on the way. And there is a reason for the detour.
