Husband’s Stage 4 Cancer

My husband was diagnosed with Stage 4 esophageal cancer and the first thing his doctor told him was “Don’t research this on the web!”  That’s because the survival rate is dismal, especially with a tumor so large we nicknamed it “the Texas tumor.”  The first days were a blur of numbness and shock as we had to wait for space in the program so he could be admitted, and we had the actual feeling of holding on to a tree root as we’re hanging off a cliff.  Through prayer, we LET GO and dropped onto the rock that is Jesus Christ.  Doors opened and my husband was admitted into the MD Anderson proton therapy treatment, which is an amazing technology to blast cancer while lessening the damage to surrounding tissues. 

We arrived at the separate proton therapy facility in the Med Center to find a beautiful, two-story atrium building where you check in on the top floor, then walk down an open staircase to the lower floor.  After we checked in, my husband turned to me and said excitedly, “They’re playing KSBJ!”  With the high ceiling and the two-story lobby, the sound of praise music to God permeated the entire facility.  I felt Jesus walking down the staircase with us, giving us strength for the next step of treatment.  No massive European or American cathedral with stained glass and golf leaf could be as beautiful as this place of hope and life.  Thank you, KSBJ, for lifting our spirits and reminding us of God’s presence and promises.  (5 years cancer-free, take that Satan!)

Answered Prayer

Well I have been praying for a very long time to get some help on getting my house repairs done. Back in May, I shared with Jen how I asked a friend for prayer because I was having a hard time not worrying about things. He texted back and said he would pray. Then a few minutes later, I got a text asking me if he can help. I replied that I needed help with my house getting painted, and he said he would come check it out the very next weekend and see if he could help. Well that is where it all started! Now the front and sides of my home exterior have been painted, my dead tree has been removed, and new flowers/bushes have been planted. PLUS now my hallway, front room, bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen have all been painted! It’s so amazing what God has done!!

Small Prayers Can Be Huge

I officiate football, and one Saturday I had 4 Pee Wee games, 4th and 5th graders at Cinco Ranch High School in Katy. I asked a parent to say a prayer for me before the games began. I didn’t mean right then and there, but the parent immediately said “OK, let’s move over here.” So just a few feet away from everyone, he prays a brief prayer for me out loud.

After that, I had my best day officiating Pee Wees all season. No coaches yelled at me even once for almost 8 hours of game…and that in and of itself was a miracle!!

Today I repaid the favor to a Pei Wei server at one of the new locations here in Katy. KSBJ encouraging prayer to servers really has encouraged me to ask for prayer and ask others if I can pray for them as well.

Is God Real?

I grew up in a Christian family and went to church, but I didn’t understand it. I didn’t pray or read the Bible or anything like that. When I couldn’t go to the kid’s service anymore and I had to go to the adult service, for me it was really boring. Sometimes I even tried to go to sleep.

Then one day, when I was playing on my computer, my mom said to put on some Christian music. So I put on some songs from Toby Mac and I liked them. Then later my mom put on KSBJ in the car, and one of the Toby Mac songs was playing. I really loved it. So I started reading the Bible and started to pray and I finally understood it. I finally understand that God is real. So now every morning, right before school, we listen to KSBJ!

Praying for Servers

I just recently attended a family wedding at an event center in middle Texas.  Being an avid KSBJ listener and a prayer partner at my church. I have been listening to the stories about praying for your food servers if you are at a restaurant.  My husband and I in our travel had the opportunity to do that for the young woman who was tending the buffet line at our hotel. That was awesome! But, here is one more ....

While attending the wedding, they were serving food and alcohol, and they had a police officer on the premises for security purposes.  After thanking this young lady officer for her service, I remembered the KSBJ challenge and asked the officer if there was anything I could pray with her about. She was reluctant at first, but then she told me how her and her husband were fostering a young girl whose father was currently serving time for crimes he did against this 8 year old.  The officer was concerned about the young girl’s future and how she wished her dad could value her as the treasure she surely is. And since he had plea bagained for a lighter sentence he was due to get the young girl back. I prayed with the officer for strength, courage, and comfort and for God to put His hand on the situation.  We both were sincerely touched at this opportunity to share a burden and bring it to the Lord who is able to do all things.

I just wanted to say thank you to KSBJ!  I am a prayer partner at church for those who need/want prayer. But in that capacity I wait for someone to approach me.  Following the example of KSBJ, I went out of my way to offer prayer if wanted by approaching someone who serves.

Feeing God’s Presence

Church was so amazing today! I felt our Lord Jesus Christ like never before. During the whole service I was praying so hard and wanted an answer. I wanted to know. Right after service was over I was thinking maybe God forgot about me and will answer my prayers later. I was about to leave when a lady came up to me and said, “God was listening to you the whole service when you were praying.” She laid her hands on me and started praying. I raised my hands to Jesus as tears ran down my face. “Jesus loves you. He’s always had and has always been there for you. Jesus is here. Let her feel your love.” The lady continued to pray and I repeated after her. “I surrender to you. Jesus, have your way…” Then she said, “You will feel His love, Now!”

I can’t explain the feeling I had, but as soon as she said that I felt like something overcame my body and I couldn’t control it. More tears came down my face and I couldn’t feel my legs. Slowly I started kneeling down (again, I completely had no control over my body) to my knees, knowing I was kneeling down before our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Then the lady started speaking in tongues. “Jesus is working on you and has great things planned for you.” she said. Then she said, “Let her feel peace!” and I stopped crying. A little after that, she said, “Let her feel joy, Jesus!” and I couldn’t help but smile.

Matthew 7:7-8 (KJV)
7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

I know my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is real and he died for me. He loves me and every one of us. I am thankful for the blood of Jesus and please cover my family and friends in it!

God is Faithful

My husband and I owned a small manufacturing company that went out of business in January 2016. Since that time, my husband has been working diligently to help Veterans in our area with his ministry.  He does not get paid from the ministry. Times are tough. Money is tight and getting tighter.

On Monday I woke up and went to my prayer closet. I sat down, read some scripture, and called out to God. I asked God to please help us make it through the next two weeks until I got paid again because we had $1.77 in one account and about $8.00 in another account.

When I got to work on Monday, I received an envelope with my name on it from my boss. I looked inside and there was a cash bonus. I started shaking and went into her office. I asked her what this was for and her reply was, “Because you are so awesome!”. I hugged her, thanked her, and told her that I had prayed for God to help us. She smiled and said that when she woke up, she started praying and God spoke to her and told her that I needed that money.

God is SO good! I honestly did not know how we were going to pay for gas, groceries, etc. for the next two weeks. After I sat back down at my desk, I got a vision of God kind of chuckling and saying “I told you I will always take care of you my child”.

Finding a Job & Growing my Faith

I graduated from Texas A&M with my second degree in four and a half years in Dec 2015 and was only 22 years old. I just *knew* I would get a job right out of the gate, but boy was I wrong. I prayed for my first couple of interviews but just had that “gut feeling” that I would get what I wanted quickly. After receiving denials for those first interviews, I was definitely bummed but knew God had something in store for me. Right after my denial email for the job that I really wanted and just knew I would get, the first song I heard on the radio (KSBJ of course because they always play the right song at the right time) was Just Be Held by Casting Crowns. The line that says, “Your world’s not falling apart, it’s falling into place!” spoke to me so clearly, and I knew that God had something in store for me down the road, it just wasn’t the right time. I kept putting in application after application with no luck but I knew something was coming.

Looking back on just a few months ago, I can see that I had blind faith and knew God would eventually provide, not because I was genuinely leaning on him and trusting him but because God wouldn’t let me fail right? Now, I’m 9 months out of school, still with no job, but God is really showing me what it means to actually trust him and lean on him and walk with him not just knowing in the back of my mind that he’ll come through for me.

Since this realization, I’ve gotten involved with a new church in College Station. The first Sunday I went, the pastor was beginning a new sermon series. And guess what the topic of the sermon series was? Five Essentials for Growth (in Your Faith)!! Here I was, knowing that God was working on me, but not really knowing what to do. So I walk into church and there is a giant here-is-exactly-what-you-need! And it doesn’t stop there. 3 weeks in a row, as I’m leaving church, Lauren Daigle’s “I Will Trust In You” comes on KSBJ before I even make it home just right down the street. Each time, I’m left in tears and just sing my heart out because it is so incredibly applicable to my life right now. I’m so thankful that I’m learning to really grow my faith and walk with Christ instead of just apathetically slothing through my trials knowing that God will do the work to take care of me.

KSBJ Settles Me

KSBJ came to work with me! I started a new job in February, and was suffering from anxiety. We are allowed to listen to music, but can only catch a few radio stations. Luckily KSBJ is one of those stations. You guys helped settle me, make me laugh, think, and pray.  THANK YOU!

God Sent an Angel

With all of the bad in this world, I will say there are still angels among us and good things happening! My husband played golf last Thursday morning in Dallas and put his clubs in the bed of his truck. He drove 30 minutes and got to his hotel only to discover his tailgate down and his clubs nowhere to be found! To make it worse; his wallet, cash and credit cards were in his bag! So of course then he is sick to his stomach and has no way to fly home from Dallas. He drove around retracing his path for an hour looking for them with no luck. He had called me when he first discovered his bag was missing, and I started praying for God to send an angel to help. I said, “God, this looks impossible, but I know you are bigger than this situation! I know anyone could find those clubs and keep them but please send an angel to find them.”

My husband received a call within 30 minutes from a man named Stephen who had found his clubs and wallet! He had searched in his wallet to find a card with his work number on it. He then called my husband’s office and they patched him through to my husband’s cell phone. My husband met with him to retrieve his items, and the man would not take anything for returning them! He actually also apologized for having to go through his wallet!

I told my husband, “You just met an angel!!” With this answered prayer I felt such a restored faith in humanity! God bless this man, his family and everyone around him. God is Good!!
