God Knows My Name!

Every morning lately I had been waking up with a headache.  Figured it didn’t mean anything so took a couple aspirin and forgot about it.  But then I started having episodes of (light) depression and began crying a lot.  That’s not me and I wondered what was going on.  I’m taking a new medicine so I called the pharmacist to see what the side effects were. Depression and headaches had never been reported.  I’ve been taking antidepressants for ten years so I thought maybe I needed to up the dose.  Maybe this was just a bad time in my life. One day my despair was particularly bad so with tears in my eyes, I called a friend who came over to pray with me.  We talked and prayed and she suggested I begin listening to KSBJ during the day so I would be ‘surrounded’ with words of truth and love. I did and a few days later the word ‘aspartame’ began entering my mind. Aspartame! Where did that come from? Then I remembered.  I love lemonade in the summer and about a month earlier I bought a lemonade mix with aspartame as the sweetening agent.  Since then I had been drinking nearly a quart a day of lemonade.  Hurriedly I looked up Side Effects of Aspartame and sure enough - headaches, depression, and mood swings were all listed.  Listening to beautiful music that filled my mind with Christian concepts had made my being more receptive to messages from the Holy Spirit and God could communicate with me.  He knew my name!

Lost and found

My boyfriend and I of 5 years were going out every weekend and getting home late. Basically we were just living how we wanted to. We did that for about 2 years and I got to the point were I was feeling lost. I told myself “There is something missing in my life.” I grew up going to church as a child but never really established a relationship with the Lord. Well one day I was in my car and I saw a bumper sticker that said KSBJ and on the bottom it said God listens. So I turned it to the station and it was playing ‘Strong Enough’ and when I heard that song I just started crying. Right then and there I prayed for God to change my life. A few weeks later my boyfriend and I were talking and he said he wanted to stop going out for drinks and start living for God and I told him me too! It has been 3 years since we been out for drinks and we couldn’t be happier. We pray and read our bibles together and we tell other people about God. Recently we got married going on 3 months now. I just want to let everyone out there to know God is good if you just turn to him in the good times and bad times he will always be there for you..God really listens!

Answered prayers and a familiar “friend”

My husband and I lived apart for jobs the past year.  I had a great job, he had a horrible job.  We became pregnant in December, and for the last 9 months, I’ve been praying and hoping for 2 things: 
1. A great job for my husband where his hard work is appreciated and he can enjoy what he does.
2. A healthy baby.

Well, my husband was offered a great job in a different town at the end of July - and our daughter was born 3 weeks early due to my having preeclampsia, but so far she seems to be perfectly healthy.  I’ve been in and out of the hospital for high blood pressure, and she was born via c-section despite all my planning on having a completely natural non c-section child birth, but she and I seem to be healthy and mending after a crazy few weeks. We are a healthy happy family, AND we are now living in the Houston area.  So the radio station I grew up with, *cough KSBJ cough* is accessible on the radio when I drive around running errands. My blood pressure was 190/122 at one point after the birth of my child, and the doctors were convinced I was going to have a stroke.  I am still in the process of recovering, but God has provided my husband with a better job, surrounded by kind and wonderful colleagues and administration, and our family with a beautiful healthy baby girl. I know I had more people than I can imagine praying for me.  And as I drove to a doctor’s appointment today, the first one where I wasn’t immediately checked into a hospital since my daughter’s birth, I was blessed to listen to KSBJ, and feel peace about what has been (and probably will continue to be, but hopefully for different reasons) a crazy life.

Salvation and Encouragement

Praise Jesus I was saved 6 months ago! Even though I grew up in church and listened to this station throughout the years I had stopped doing both a few years ago. I got really depressed and felt so alone and apathetic. I was searching for something but didn’t know what. I then decided to turn KSBJon and one day at work Jesus opened my eyes to my sin and Himself and I prayed and asked him to save me. Since then I only listen to KSBJ and Jesus has used this station to teach me, and give hope and encouragement in my walk with him.

God is my Healer, Freedom and Victory!

Six years ago I allowed myself to become someone I was not. I had been a devoted Christian since childhood. I loved and lived for God. My world around me was good. My marriage was good. But I took my eyes off of all of that and placed them on the world. I sought what I thought I did not have - I was wrong. I made the choice to become something I am not proud of in the least - I was unfaithful to my husband. But I am not named by my sins, nor my past. For Jesus has made me free from that burden. His grace and mercy cleansed me from the inside out. He made me a NEW creation in Him. He forgave me and did NOT leave me where I was. He restored me to wholeness and wellness. I praise Him always!!!
My story does not end there…..for as beautiful as my Savior’s love and grace was for me….my dear and wonderful husband also extended that same love and grace….complete pardon and forgiveness. He has extended such patience and help to me through these 6 years….as there have been real struggles to overcome. But he has loved me with the very love of God Himself….and I thank my God each and every single day for the beautiful gift of my dear husband that He has gifted me so beautifully with. I also share how that KSBJ has been such an incredible tool in my healing….for the songs they have played have been used to encourage and strengthen me daily. I thank God for this radio station!!! It is a HUGE BLESSING in my life. As Big Daddy Weave sings these words…..“Of the grace that is greater than all my sin Of when justice was served and where mercy wins Of the kindness of Jesus that draws me in To tell you my story is to tell of Him” I sing too….for this is my story and my story is to tell of HIM….always.

Friend, if this story is similar to what you are going through or what has happened in your life…..be encouraged. KNOW that God is for YOU. KNOW that He WILL see you through. KNOW that God will heal YOU. KNOW that it takes time. KNOW that even when we make mistakes - He is so amazing that He uses them for good. My marriage and my relationship with God is stronger today than it EVER has been…..all because of Jesus and His beautiful grace.
Thank you, Jesus.

I was in the process of getting a great job. Days and miles of traveling to the other side of town. I finished the testing and passed it with flying colors. After all that time, effort and endless paperwork, I informed the owner that I had doctor appointment in a few days for my son and I who are both diabetics, and asked if I could start after I’m done. He was very rude and told me that he didn’t want to give me a chance because of HIS past experience with other people. I even told him that I would reschedule the appointment for myself and someone else to take my son to his appointment. He still said no and I felt so angry and hurt because he didn’t know me and he blamed me for possibly doing something that someone else had done. As soon as I got in my car the tears began to flow uncontrollably I felt so defeated. But then a time came when I paused and the song “Overcomer” came on and my tears instantly stopped. Every word of that song moved me in such a wonderful positive motivating way. In a way that I know only God can move me. At that moment I instantly turned my music up as loud as it could go and turned off my air conditioning, let my windows down and proclaimed it to everyone and anyone that was around me “I am NOT defeated I’m a child of God and he said that I am an Overcomer.” Thank you so very much KSBJ. You all our God’s loving touching hands and voices to his children that listen to you and that are involved with you in every form or fashion. Again from the bottom of my heart from my family to all of you, thank you.

Bye broken heart

High school broke me. I was torn in many ways. I let a boy break my heart and this is when depression began for me. But it was through that broken heart that God FILLED my heart with true love. The day I let go of the pain, the sadness, the depression, and my broken heart was the day that I received happiness, joy, and fullness from God. No relationship can give you what God will give you. You don’t need anyone to complete for you are already completed in Christ. Fall in love with God first. Once you experience God’s love, you’ll be never the same. To that guy that broke my heart, THANK YOU SO MUCH. I found my true love, God. Psalms 34:18 “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted: He rescues those whose spirits are crushed.” NLT

God gave me my life back… and more

I struggled with drug addiction for 5 years. My friends and most of my family gave up on me, but God didn’t.  Aft 11 rehabs, 15 therapists and a whole lot of misery, I fell to my knees and prayed to God for the first time in years. I asked him to help guide me and drastically change my life to stay clean and find my purpose.  It has been one year since I said that prayer. Today I have a beautiful baby boy, I am almost 1 year clean and sober, and I have a great job. I work with children at my church and get to serve the Lord! God works miracles. You just have to let him and get out of your own way!

Nothing More Amazing

Amazing! Words can’t explain the emotion I’m feeling as I’m writing this. I’ve been crying for about thirty minutes now but not because I’m sad but because I’m happy. I have been home for about three weeks due to having a newborn. Have not gone out or done anything this whole time. But tonight something brought me to tears. My newborn crying and I couldn’t get him to calm down so I told myself “let me turn on my Pandora to KSBJ and see if that will calm him down.” In two seconds he got quiet and did nothing but listen and eventually fell asleep. Why did this make me cry? Well to begin he was listening to the music, but most importantly it made me feel as if he remembered me listening to KSBJ full blast everyday in my tummy when I would commute to and from work and every other random drive. Needless to say I needed to feel this joy as I’m struggling being a single mom of two.
