God Stories: Lives impacted by KSBJ & NGEN

KSBJ is God sent

June 22, 2017 by Robby

KSBJ has been on my vehicle radio for about 4 years now and it very rarely is changed. I began listening to KSBJ when my daughter who is turning 4 in August was born. She was born in Sugarland and within 24 hours was life-flighted to the medical center where she stayed for 4 weeks. I asked for prayers via KSBJ online one morning as we almost lost her the night before, within 2-3 hours the prayer request was on the radio for millions to hear. The power of prayer worked (God is Awesome) because she is with us today!!! Moving forward I’ve had my own struggles with my faith and when I’m down and feeling my lowest KSBJ always seems to play the right song at the right time and I often catch myself laughing out loud while driving to work listening to Carder and Rachelle. I would have never thought Christian radio could be so powerful in so many ways.

Thank you for all you do and thank you for bringing God into my ears daily!!!!

He knows it all!

June 12, 2017 by Christina

If I am going through the storm, mine is a hurricane right now: Job issues, a flooded home and temporary relocation, and marital problems. I’ve been clinging to God like a leech! Despite all that is going on I’ve been telling God that I will trust Him.

I LOVE the song “Trust in You” by Lauren Daigle. The words fit me so well and I listen to it every day just to remind myself that trusting in Him is the only way I am going get through this. As I am driving to work, I wanted to hear the song but didn’t want to wreck trying to reach for my phone to play it on Bluetooth. I thought to myself, “As soon as I get to the red light I’m going to play that song.” At that exact moment, KSBJ played the song. I burst into tears. I mean, really….out of the millions of songs that KSBJ could have played but the very song I needed to hear, wanted to hear came on. It made me realize that God was confirming to me that HE is with me. I felt as if He spoke to me and said, “Just trust me, I know exactly what you need and I am listening to your every prayer.” I don’t believe in coincidence - I believe in God and I have no doubt it was Him behind all that. I KNOW that He has a plan and a purpose for all that is going on. I can’t see it right now but I am laying everything down and putting all my hope and trust in Him. Thank you KSBJ for sharing His light daily through your program! You touch my life every day. God bless!!

There is Power in the name of Jesus

May 30, 2017 by Marilyn

I had just gotten on highway 99 and was heading north to work.  It was about 5:30 in the morning.  It was dark and cloudy and I thought it looked like we were in for some big storms.  I had my radio turned on to KSBJ (as always) and the song came on, “There is Power in the Name of Jesus”.  I was singing at the top of my lungs (luckily there was no one else in the car to hear me).

I had just sang out, “THERE IS POWER IN THE NAME OF JESUS” when a huge bolt of lightening came down and struck the pavement right in front of my car!  I was going 70 mph and didn’t have the time or thought to even slow down.  The only thing I thought of was WOW!!!  There IS Power in the name of Jesus!  I thanked Jesus for keeping me safe and praised him for showing me his power!  It was awesome.  I wasn’t scared; I was in Awe.  I told some people about it, but they didn’t get it.  Most said it was a good thing it didn’t hit my car.  I told them, that’s not the point…it’s what Jesus showed me.  They just looked at me.  I sighed and went on my way knowing in my heart that Jesus was showing me something special.  Glory to God!

The Eye Of The Tornado

May 22, 2017 by Travis

When I was 5 years old, my dad got me up early one weekend morning because he wanted to show me something. A very severe thunderstorm was going on outside! I was by myself in my bed. I couldn’t get any sleep! But my dad came into the room and picked me up out of bed. He took me into his room and put me down in front of the atrium door. I had a front row seat to the storm outside. He leaned over and pointed out the window. He told me I can see IT when there were big lightning flashes. I waited for it. When the next big lightning flash happened, I squinted in the direction he pointed and saw my first tornado. As a reflected on that scene years later I realized the good Lord was showing me that he is always there by my side amidst the storm. Just like my dad was. Whenever I was with my dad I never was afraid. Because I knew my dad would handle any problem. Any storm. And I still believe it. It’s the same way we all should feel about our good Lord. Whenever we have storms and tornadoes in our life, remember what the good Lord said to the stormy lake: “Peace! Be still!” Be still and know that He is God! The eye of the tornado! God bless you all!

God’s miracle

May 10, 2017 by Wanda

On October 10, 2016 my son and his friend were going back to Christ for the Nation in Dallas. 70 miles from Dallas they had a roll over, 4 times and landed upside down into incoming traffic. At that very moment I was listening to KSBJ playing “King of the World” by Natalie Grant. I felt in my spirit to pray for the boys. Few minutes later I got the call that they have been in an accident. Praise God, the car was totaled but they came out of that accident alive without any injuries, broken bones or anything. Not even their glasses broke. The car that was coming in the opposite directions had a registered nurse. She cut them out as they were upside down. We lost the car but I gain a new sense of God. He is the King of the World and he holds us in the palm of his hands. PRAISE GOD….

Caleb healing

May 10, 2017 by ayesha

In 2011, our second son Caleb was diagnosed with epilepsy when he was just 2 years old. It was devastating to know that he will be labeled special needs. We cried out to God for answers and he gave us KSBJ. Caleb listens only to KSBJ and at times when I forget to tune in, I hear this voice from behind saying “God listens KSBJ”; and mom put KSBJ on.
This month Caleb was due for another yearly test and that’s when I heard the Even If song by MercyMe. I felt like God was asking me “even if” I don’t heal Caleb, will you stay in faith, will you be joyful, will you look to Me.
The night we were in the hospital, I said Lord even if this test comes to another year of Caleb having seizures I will still trust You and Your timing.
A few days back, we got the results and NO SEIZURE WAS DETECTED IN CALEB. We jumped with joy giving Jesus all glory, honor and praise. We’re still weeping tears of joy after 8 years of saying “EVEN IF.” My Heavenly Father has finally done the impossible! Thank you KSBJ for always being there, playing the right music at the right time. Truly, God listens!

Even IF…

April 29, 2017 by Ronni

My husband was diagnosed with Hepatitis C only 8 years after we were married.  We knew that Christ had put us together to heal the wounds of our childhood, so GOD had a plan for us, and it wasn’t that he die from this!  We were told by well meaning doctors that he would be dead or living with a transplant in 15 years.  This month marks 7 years past that prophesied 15! Life has been a roller coaster, on and off drug therapies to stop the progression of the disease munching on his liver but last year he was declared by the Doctor’s at Baylor Medical Liver Ctr to be HepC free, with no transplant and all the anti rejection drugs that entails! We looked up all the healing scriptures we could find and declared them through our house.  Our prayer’s became , Father, your Word says….

One of our granddaughter’s had told us that Jesus promised to heal him and, Praise GOD, she was right.  We all have faith and know that our Father still works miracles. we held on for 22 years!  It’s not just because of this journey that we believe, though.  He lavishes us with his love, still healing and helping us overcome issues daily.  Once He’s cleansed you, it’s like a burden you didn’t even know you were carrying is lifted. His mercies truly are new every morning.  So obey and don’t worry about tomorrow for sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.  GOD is with you.  I enjoy letting KSBJ remind me of this daily! Thank you.

Broken Hallelujah

April 11, 2017 by Don

I was having problems in my marriage, and after some best efforts on my part (therapy, daily scripture study and prayer, among other things) things seemed a little better, but then one day everything came crashing down. I was very discouraged for several days. Normally I’m a regular listener to KSBJ on my way to and from work but for those few days I felt so hopeless that I didn’t even want to turn on the radio. I didn’t feel like reading from the Bible or praying really. The words at the beginning of the song Broken Hallelujah exactly described how I felt: “I can barely stand right now, everything is crashing down, and I wonder where you are.” I would ask God exactly that: “Where are you? I’ve been making my best efforts but it has come crashing down again.” I would ask him that over and over again during those days. I listened to Broken Hallelujah at work over and over again. Even though I didn’t have the radio on during my commute, I had alot of the songs that play on KSBJ playing in my mind. Not only Broken Hallelujah, but several others. After a few days, my wife and I were finally able to come to an understanding. I began to feel a little more encouraged. Not quite enough to turn the radio back on, but as I was processing and contemplating the events, and my feelings over the past few days, I realized that God was with me in the songs that played over and over in my head, even when I had the radio off. I had been asking God: “Where are you?” And He had been with me the entire time through the songs that I had heard on KSBJ that were playing over and over in my head. I had not been abandoned after all. Thanks and praise be to our almighty and loving God!!

Life isn’t always what we expect

March 31, 2017 by Kim

I began listening to KSBJ in 2004, when I was 24 years old. At that time I had an 8 year old son (you can do the math) and he was my world. That is also the year I found Jesus and my son and I began going to church, the same church I am actively a part of today. My son started attending Pine Cove that same year as well and would go every year until his senior year of high school. He loved that camp. That is where he found Jesus. My son struggled with addiction his adolescent years and entered many substance abuse facilities. When my world seemed dark and lonely through his addiction I always turned to KSBJ to get me through it. My son, Garrett, lost his battle with addiction on August 16, 2016 and as I was being driven to the hospital to see him, my best friend turned on KSBJ and “Thy Will” came on. That wasn’t a coincidence. That was God who had y’all play that song that afternoon.  That is one of the only things I remember from that day. The rest was a blur. Your station, your DJs, your prayers, your music, has kept me going through this unthinkable time in my life. My husband listened to your station for the first time after our son passed and listens to you guys every day now.

The other day y’all talked about us protecting our children and doing things for our children when they could do those things themselves. I saved my son so many times in fear of him failing or….dying. On August 13, 2016, I finally stepped back and let God take care of my son. And God did. People always ask me, “How can you say that? Your son died.” But my son is no longer in pain; no longer suffering. God had mercy on him and I know I will see my baby boy again one day. KSBJ, the music, and my church have helped me see this. Thank you for this. I will forever be grateful.

Husband Opening Up

March 24, 2017 by Stephanie

My husband and I have had some martial issues that almost ended our marriage 5 years ago. The last 5 years have been an uphill battle to get to where we are today. We are both Christians but that incident left us mad at God. I started going back to church about a year ago and have been praying for my husband to come back as well. God is really working in my life and I am over the moon grateful for that. We have been in a rut lately with each of us doing our own thing. I have been in continuous prayer for my husband and our marriage. So I am looking for anything that can get us doing things together.
My husband loves music of all types. Me, not so much except for some country and Christian music. I noticed that Duran Duran was coming to concert in a few weeks and asked my husband if he wanted to go. Now mind you I have no clue who they are or what they sing I am just looking for anything to get us out together. He says no, he is not interested. So I drop it. The next morning he asks me if I wanted to go, I chuckled and said no I don’t even know what they sing. Then he asks me if there is a concert I would like to go to. Without hesitation I said that I really would like to go to the KSBJ Anniversary Concert this weekend. Without skipping a beat he tells me to get tickets. Let me tell you that was God and God alone. I am praying that my husband’s eyes and heart will be open to God once again through this event. Without KSBJ we would not have this opportunity. Thank you for your obedience and faithfulness to God, and for all that you do.

Mental Health and Gods Healing

March 21, 2017 by Brandon

I started out as a typical college kid, then came under some bad influence from my cousins. I ended up consuming a spiked drink in college which led to a nervous breakdown, depression and suicidal thoughts. But then I found God and accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior and got the help I needed. Now I seek to raise awareness on Mental Illness and share my testimony with others across the globe. I am the author of a book: Madness To Ministry, My testimony, Your triumph. In the book, I share personal dark truths about my wrestling match with Mental Health and how I overcame; depression, feeling of neglect and suicidal thoughts. Peace and may God be with you!

Giving my life to God

March 17, 2017 by Mackenzie Dodd

I was born in Louisiana and raised in Beijing, China. When I was 3, my mom noticed something wrong with me so she took me into the therapist and after some tests the therapists said Mackenzie will never be a normal girl, she wont graduate and will have to go to an all special Ed school for the rest of her life! My mom and family hated hearing that so I went through 2 years of occupational therapy and 3 years of physical therapy. I was a swimmer, but its funny because it started as part of my therapy and I feel in love with it so much that I continued to do it! I made varsity my sophomore year and made varsity districts as well as lettered and went to a qualifying meet that same year. I was made fun of and bullied throughout my school years, and people treated me like I had a disease or something. They would make fun of me for having special tutoring time, and looking different. They would tell me,“Who could ever love a girl with a learning disability? You have no friends. You’re dumb.”

After years of this I decided to go upstairs, shut the light off, and close the door and blinds so no one could see or hear me. I took my brother’s sword, kneeled down and was going to kill myself. I was crying for 40 min straight and a voice was saying, “Mackenzie, who could ever love a girl with a learning disability? You have no friends! No one loves you! You have no purpose in this world.” And kept saying that and then it got silent and so as I was about to take my life, another voice came and said calmly, “Mackenzie, I love you! I made you in my image! You have a purpose in this would. You may not know what it is yet, but you will soon! I gave you a learning disability because I know you could handle it out of all people. I want you to show Me through you in what I can do and to never give up faith in Me!” Right then and there, I dropped my sword and cried tears of joy because I was saved! My mom is a special Ed teacher so thank God, she knew what to do. I am now married to my best friend and he is in the army. We have a precious 13 month old son together. God is good!

Not Just A Challenge

February 14, 2017 by Debbie

For anyone taking the 30-Day-Challenge, they will be absolutely surprised at the type of music, the fun and, of course, always an uplifting message. Some may think the music is like church hymns or old dirges, but it’s not. It’s refreshing, contemporary, upbeat and uplifting. I start each morning listening and it puts me in a frame of mind to go to work and be positive knowing the love of Christ. God bless KSBJ for the work you do all over the world!

Coming Back From Homelessness

February 11, 2017 by Darlene

While I was living in a homeless shelter, I would listen to KSBJ on my transistor radio and when I had tapes would record my favorite songs so that I could listen to them any time. In 1999 I landed a very good job and so I had to start giving back to KSBJ for the many blessings and the encouragement received that kept me going. KSBJ reminded me to be brave, that God was with me, and I would overcome.  I prayed that a station close by would sell to KSBJ so there wouldn’t be so much interference and static.  I still have those tapes and play them every now and then just to remind me how far I have come and how far KSBJ has come. God is good. There is NO static or interruption now. You come in loud and clear. So nice!  Thank you for never giving up either! God bless all at KSBJ for keeping up the good work of reaching those out here who need something beautiful to hang on to!

KSBJ Listener

February 09, 2017 by Ruth

I have been a KSBJ listener since it first went on the air. I actually started listening to the old radio station, KFMK, as a teenager. When KFMK went off the air and it was announced that eventually a new Christian radio station would be back on the air, I was skeptical. I waited with anticipation and was thrilled when KSBJ was born. I have never felt the need to change this station. I am not familiar with any of the other stations and my grandchildren now ask me if they are going to listen to Jesus music when they get in my car. My granddaughter, who is 11, now falls asleep, listening to KSBJ. I have had many happy times and many sad times, and KSBJ has been my constant companion. I have been through a marriage, unfortunately a divorce, death in the family, having children, with one of them being in the military, and now being a proud grandmother.  I am privileged to be able to listen to KSBJ at work, also.  You have made me laugh and you have made me cry!  I honestly don’t know what I would do, without being able to listen to you. You have encouraged me tremendously!  Thank you for your ministry and may God bless you richly.

Sincerely,  Ruth

Isaiah’s Fall

February 03, 2017 by Ronni

I was in the gym when the phone rang and I chose to ignore it. My granddaughter, Addisyn, cousin to Isaiah, brought me the phone and looked me in the eyes telling me she believes I need to answer this. Her Aunt was almost unintelligible and distraught, but I understood there was an accident and life flight was involved. I drove to the apartment and Isaiah’s sister, my other granddaughter, Nevaeh, was strangely calm. She said Nana, “We need to pray. This is serious. There was blood everywhere.” I got her and her mother in the car, we called KSBJ, asked for prayer and the rest is history. The doctors thought he would have to relearn everything, but after 16 hours, he woke up, pulled the tubes out and asked why he was in the hospital. He still knew everyone, and wanted to swim and ride his bike like nothing had happened. He’s at grade level and spells and reads well. Hallelujah!! This was over two years ago around Easter and Isaiah still loves listening to God’s music on KSBJ.

30 Day Challenge Update

February 02, 2017 by Michelle

I took the 30 day challenge several years ago when my kids were very young.  KSBJ was playing on my car radio every day when we were riding in the car together.  I didn’t think they paid any attention to it.  Then one day the jingle played, “89.3…”  From the back seat I heard a chorus of “KSBJ!”  Then I realized they were hearing everything played on my radio!  It became very important to me that they heard the right messages and we’ve been listening ever since.

Thanks for blessing us every day with your ministry!


God Reset My Relationship

February 02, 2017 by Martha Hurtado

To make a long story short.  I started a relationship about ten months ago.  We started off good, going to church, and having a relationship with God, we wanted to do things right.  But slowly I began to leave the church and to listen to ungodly music and do my own thing.  The enemy tempted me to start doubting my boyfriend and I became jealous and then I finally broke it off.  The break up was hard on both of us, But we were letting God work on us and letting Him counsel and lead us.  If we were for each other, God will lead us back to each other.  We finally reconciled, and now love each other more than ever,  We attend church regularly now, and are reading the bible more.  Putting God first, is the only way to save a relationship.

Finding my faith and strength

February 02, 2017 by Felita

I started listening to KSBJ in 2008, my only brother had just got arrested and was going to prison. I felt alone and useless because I could not help him. I had to be the strong one because my mom was so sad. In 2011, I had my first daughter at 28 weeks and she weighed 2lb 11oz at birth. In 2012, my dad was diagnosed with ALS and my step mom and I had to care for him. In 2014, my dad lost his battle with ALS and I felt like a piece of my heart was gone. If I hadn’t started listening to KSBJ, I don’t think I would of been able to deal with everything the way I did! When days are harder to deal with, listening to KSBJ lifts my spirits. I know God is always with me and that as long as my faith is strong there is nothing I can’t handle!

Years passed by in a blink of an eye

February 01, 2017 by Rosalinda

I was born in 1980 and when I was in middle school, I remember going to church with my friend and her parents. On our way her parents would always have KSBJ on in the car. Years passed by and I had a reconnection with God and started listening to KSBJ again. It’s been 8 years now and my children listen as well. My kids know all the songs and enjoy listening to the inspirational songs. We leave the radio on KSBJ at night when we go to sleep and it makes us feel peaceful. The songs always give us hope and faith, and it makes our hearts feel renewed inside! Thank you KSBJ for all that you do!!

My Story with KSBJ

February 01, 2017 by Charlotte

I actually started listening to KSBJ in 1988. Some days I would change the station to something else but ended up going back. My faith has helped me through a lot of stuff in my life. Just recently in December, I lost one of my good friends to a sudden heart attack. 2014 was not a good year for me either. My Mom died of a heart attack in October, I totaled my car in a wreck caused by another driver in November, and buried a 1 yr old cat from a fatal disease in December. KSBJ has encouraged me to stay strong in my faith and to lean on Jesus for everything.

Laughter for my soul

February 01, 2017 by RHOVONDA

Most times I head to work being all stressed out because of the commute and the craziness that goes along with being a mom and driving in Houston. I have been listening to KSBJ for awhile now, over 5 or 6 years. But I have become a faithful listener for the past 2 years. I have fallen in love with Rachelle and Carder. They are an excellent duo. Giving me lots of laughter, creativity, real life stories and encouragement all morning long. They are transparent and relatable. I love their realness!

A touch of Heaven’s Music

February 01, 2017 by Linda Bridges

I kept seeing these bumper stickers about KSBJ Christian radio station. One day I was sitting in traffic behind a car with this sticker so I tuned in. I listened for a couple of days and liked it but was just about to return back to my regular station when the 30 day challenge was announced.  I decided to take the challenge and 30 days later I could not deny how much better I felt. What a relief to be away from stations that use bad language, gossip, and are generally negative. The songs on KSBJ are beautiful and I love the uplifting stories.  After realizing how much the station helps people I started financially pledging my support.  I find myself praying in my car in the mornings on the way to work and it really starts my day off great. Thank you KSBJ.

Life saver

February 01, 2017 by Deanna Gilliam

I have two children and an amazing husband but something was missing from my life, it was my relationship with God.  The 30 day challenge started me back on the journey and I haven’t looked back.  Thank you for helping me and my entire family find God again.
Bless you all

KSBJ in California

February 01, 2017 by Jarvon

My story is quite simple.
I’m a dabbler…... I dabble here, I dabble there but above all I know I love the lord.  So I used to dabble in KSBJ after my daughter announced with excitement, “KSBJ God Listens” was at our school.  So we listened on an off for a few months.  And then I heard the challenge. 1/5/16 and decided, “why not”. I’m a Danny Gokey fan.  The more I listened the more God stayed on my mind, the more He stayed on my heart.  I would get in and out of my car 7-10x per day to visit my clients and perform physical therapy in their homes, I felt God with me.  I found my conversations trending towards Life and God (the same as when I asked him to watch over me years before when I switched from sports medicine to home health).  So needless to say when my planned trip to visit a cousin in California I realized “how can I stay on track”.  Well I was sitting outside the gym listening to “focus on the family ” and I was reminded that I could listen while on the web site.  So I had the website handy, I established a KSBJ playlist on Spotify and I was set.
I’m proud to say that I jam out and refocus while listening to God inspired music while at the gym.

So it’s been over a year and I’m still listening Love KSBJ, love the new morning team and I’m glad God And my daughter listens. 

30 day challenge 5 years ago

February 01, 2017 by Jayna

I took the 30 day challenge 5 years ago. My co-worker Lisa, an awesome Christian woman, was always listening to KSBJ at the time. I thought, “What is she listening to?” One day I was in my car and turned the radio to 89.3. KSBJ has been a blessing to me! It has helped me with the passing of my mom in 2013, my boyfriend of 3 years in 2014, my dad in 2015, and most recently my brother on Jan 12, 2017. On the many drives to Livingston, to Lufkin, to Houston, to Beaumont and to Trinity, I was comforted by God’s hands through music and God’s Words. KSBJ has opened up my heart to know Jesus more and it helped me remember the Lord’s Prayer. My first Christian concert was to see Chris Tomlin and I got to take my boyfriend now to see Mercy Me! He Loved it! Thanks KSBJ!!!!!

30 Day Reset

February 01, 2017 by Jessica

The 30 Day Reset has been such an AWESOME experience! I’ve been listening now for 2 years! Even though I did not just recently start, God has a way of giving us new experiences every time!

A couple of weeks ago my husband and I, along with our kids, were in his truck riding around. I turned the radio station to KSBJ while he ran into the store. Well then 3 days ago me and the kids got back in the truck with my husband and PRAISE GOD, he still had the radio station on KSBJ!!! This had me in tears because my husband doesn’t listen to Christian music, so to see for myself it was STILL on KSBJ made my heart glad! God bless the ministry that God is doing through each of you! I will forever be a KSBJ listener, fan and giver!

My 30 Day Challenge Story

February 01, 2017 by Jena

I started listening to KSBJ because my teenage boys kept telling me about songs they heard at church with their dad. They were so excited to share them with me so we “googled” them. I found that I too really enjoyed them. I tuned into KSBJ during the 30 Day Challenge in 2014 and have never looked back since. My number 1 preset on my radio is 89.3 KSBJ! I have other stations programmed rarely change the station. Gotta get my Jesus on!

I have always felt like I have a strong faith, but since I started listening almost every day, I feel like I have a much deeper relationship with God. I am forever thankful for the blessings bestowed upon me and finding KSBJ. The songs and staff are so inspiring! This year I began my contribution to support KSBJ during Sharathon! This is my best decision ever! Thank you KSBJ!


February 01, 2017 by Mayda

I had a lot going on to where I was feeling like I didn’t belong and that no one wanted me around. I felt not needed and KSBJ gave me a reminder to seek Jesus and keep my mind on Him even when times were hard. The songs were uplifting, and through it Jesus brought change in my life again and restored me and made me stronger.

Brandon’s Life

February 01, 2017 by Jason Gary

I was listening to “Praise You In The Storm” and “Holy Spirit” and on February 13, 2016 my brother was driving to work when a drunk driver driving at 100 miles an hour hit him and he was killed. My brother was an inspiration to everyone he met. I love the music you play and the scripture you say. I think of my brother all the time and your station keeps me on the right path with God.

Moody & Anxious Turned Calm!

February 01, 2017 by Sarah

I used to always get moody and anxious about the workday on my way to work. But then I started listening to Carder and Rachelle in the morning and would notice how I wasn’t as anxious anymore when I got to work. I love the little stories they share and every morning I can relate to something. Once I get to work, I was listening to other music, but then I turned on “Royal Tailor Pandora” and it just puts me in a better mood throughout the day, and makes me feel less anxious. I’ve heard so many new “favorite” songs and now listen to KSBJ almost all the time!

My New Daughter

February 01, 2017 by Rachel Arroyo

My 17 year old daughter Nicole was listening to KSBJ one morning on her way to school, and she heard about the 30 Day Challenge. She said she kinda blew it off, but then the very next morning someone came on and said, “You probably tried to ignore me yesterday, but today you have another opportunity to start…Yes - YOU!” My daughter said, “MOM, I promise you, it was like they were talking to me!”

I of course was so excited, because I have been telling my kids about the challenge for many years. She is now about 10 days in and she told me, “Mom, I haven’t said a bad word! I have been praying and my mind set is so different!”

I am so grateful for KSBJ for helping to be a positive tool in our children’s lives. It definitely takes a village to raise our children, especially when this world takes the upper hand in what it offers them.  What we listen to affects how we live our lives! Thank you KSBJ!

KSBJ helping me praise

January 02, 2017 by Ashlyn

I used to be what they call a ‘prodigal’ but I found Jesus this summer in 2016 at a youth Christian camp. My grandmother worked with the Church that was going (what is now my Church), and I was completely moved by the sermon and I felt as if God was speaking directly to me. Where I intended to go for just the heck of it, my life was changed forever. I remember when I could no longer take holding the weight of my sin, running to the back of the Church and just falling to my knees. I came back a couple days later and every single day since then I have always listened to your radio station.. The mini ministries KSBJ has brings me faith and reminds me to stay on the path with Christ that day. I’m reminded that I am saved! The music is so refreshing to my soul. When I listen to the radio on KSBJ I always find myself praising The Lord. It’s wonderful and the people who work at KSBJ deserve so many blessings.Thank you for being a part of a huge community of people finding their way! ❤️❤️ God is still alive and still saves. We must keep preaching the Gospel.

Answered Prayer

December 20, 2016 by Blessing

In September 2016 I had my Nursing School Exit Exam. My faith in God was highly tested, and I learned a lot. Passing the exam was my top prayer point. I was so anxious! I read my books but I didn’t know how to pray about it. During the same time, Pastor Mike would come on the radio and say a prayer for anyone who might be going through any type of challenge, and whenever I turned my radio on it was always time for the prayer. I thank God I made it through and now I have my Nursing Board Exam coming up and I believe that the same God that began a good work in me will complete it to the very end. God bless the KSBJ family for touching lives through His word!

Walking by Faith

December 14, 2016 by Emily

I have been wondering if I should even share my story, but I hope in doing so that someone may see the truth, Jesus heals. Miracles still happen everyday.

I was diagnosed with Guilliane Barre in January of 2016. In a matter of 3 days, I went from being given a healthy, happy mom of three, to being completely paralyzed from the shoulders down. It was the most eye opening, soul awakening time of my life. The doctors were not very optimistic about my recovery, telling me it could be months or years, and not to get my hopes up. I ignored them and instead asked for prayers, and they rained down over me. Friends and family members prayed; and their churches and friends prayed.

People were praying for me all over the country, and you know what happened… Jesus healed me, completely and it didn’t take months or years. I was home 3 weeks later. I know He was with me in that room, and I will forever be overwhelmed by His love and grateful to all those that prayed for me.

God Is Always There To Help

November 30, 2016 by Melissa

My hours were being cut at work and I was stressing on how I would pay my bills. I have been wanting to start my bakery business for a while.  I prayed about it and decided to start my business on the side.  I was nervous because I thought I would be wasting my time, but God was there to help me.  God was there holding my hand the whole time as I went out of my comfort zone.  I have been so blessed.  My bakery business is doing great.

I Love God

November 26, 2016 by betty

I got saved about 2 month ago and I’m so happy that I did because the life I was living was not good for me and the 2 kids that I help raise. The 2 kids look up to me just as if I was their mom. I have been in the Star of Hope 3 times and in jail 2 times. I do not want to go back. Now that I gave my life to God, it has had ups and downs, but with God I know I can do this. I have a good friend that works at the Star of Hope. I go talk to her and she has helped me get saved and me and the kids I help with have been able to go to Lakewood Church. I have been playing KSBJ a lot more now and I love it. Thanks for all y’all do!

Giving Thanks to God

November 25, 2016 by Ashley

I thank God for being exactly who he is and that He is unchanging! I love Him! He has been healing me of past fears and hurt through the last 2 years when he found me and I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior. Every day he helps me. I have joy in life where there was none. He always hears me and answers my prayers. Living in His presence day by day, giving me reminders that He is right beside me, and of His love for me has brought healing to me that I never thought possible. Thank you Lord Jesus for daily teaching me and guiding me down your pathways, for loving me and helping me overcome.                                                                                                        .

From Anxiety to Joy

November 11, 2016 by Cheryl

In 2014, I had two heart attacks five days apart. After 15 days in the hospital, I finally came home but I was not myself. An intense fear had taken hold of me and I was so afraid that I would have another heart attack and die. I was a single mom with a 11 year old son that needed me and that I loved too much to leave.  My heart was damaged so badly that I could not work although I tried many times. I was a teacher with 27 years of teaching in the public schools and leaving my position upset me very much. Things seemed to just fall apart. Soon I could not live in my house so my son and I had to move.  I felt like my entire life was under attack. I looked to scripture for some answers.  There were some days that I felt like giving up. The fear and anxiety had me in its grip. Then I happened upon KSBJ. I heard God’s word and the music lifted my spirits. I spoke to a doctor who told me to try to get out and walk in the mornings.  At first it was hard to get out of bed.  The anxiety seemed to try and hold me down. The weight of it was heavy like an anchor.  But I moved.  I grabbed my phone and headphones, put a leash on my dog and we headed outside.  I listened to KSBJ as I walked.  I heard great, uplifting songs.  My walks got longer each day. I started waking up with the words from the songs in my head. I felt better. I began to wear make up and dress like my old self again. One day my son looked at me and said, “Mom, you look happy!” I wanted to cry. He was right. The Word of God and the praise in His music helped me defeat fear and anxiety. They were gone. I am so thankful to have this radio station to keep me singing and to praise God for his goodness and his strength. He truly does go before us and he does fight our battles.

Husband’s Stage 4 Cancer

November 05, 2016 by Becky

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

November 03, 2016 by Kathy

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

November 01, 2016 by Michael

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?

October 24, 2016 by Brianna Cox

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

October 03, 2016 by Mary Ann

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

September 29, 2016 by Julie

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

September 22, 2016 by Lisa

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

September 12, 2016 by Lindsey

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

September 09, 2016 by Jackie

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

September 07, 2016 by Delena Smith

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!!

KSBJ Brought Me Home

September 05, 2016 by Jill

I was adopted as a newborn. When I was 18, I found my biological parents. 6 months later, I was having dinner with my biological dad. We had become very close since meeting. After we had dinner, we were involved in a road rage dispute and my dad passed away.

I spent years holding on to anger and hate. I was angry that God could allow me to lose my dad again!

A year ago I began praying and asking God for His forgiveness for the anger I directed at Him a year ago. After praying about this for a few weeks, I turned on KSBJ. Everything has changed in my life since then. I went back to the church where I grew up. I finally felt so much weight off my shoulders and I was able to let go of so many bad feelings. Thank you KSBJ for bringing me home.


August 24, 2016 by Lisa

I had been very worried for several months and agonized over some medical tests that were upcoming. As I waited every day for the results to come back, I would pray for God’s healing and strength and to let my tests come back normal. The day before I received the results, I opened the facebook app on my phone. The first thing that popped up was the scripture posted by KSBJ.  On July 7, the scripture from Mark 5:34 was posted. “He said to her, daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering.”

I knew immediately that God was speaking directly to me and that I was healed. It was one of the most powerful moments in my life. I knew that my test results would be OK. The next day I received a call from the doctor’s office that my test results were normal. I knew before I even got that call that I was healed.

Thank you, God, for speaking to me through KSBJ.  I have shared this with others as a witness to God’s grace and mercy and love for all of us.

Twenty One Pilots

August 02, 2016 by Emma

I have been struggling with depression for a year. And it just seemed to snowball, and get worse. I had lost hope and was even starting to question if God was even out there. But when I felt like my world was completely crumbling around me, God led me straight to a band named Twenty One Pilots. The popular band had a great reputation in radio stations that didn’t have to do much with God. But what I had realized, and the other radio stations must have over looked, is that when you read Twenty One Pilots lyrics, there is a lot of faith in their words.

I found hope with them, and conquered my depression. But most importantly they saved my faith. So for me to hear that KSBJ is starting a new radio station, NGEN, who plays Twenty One Pilots, makes me so happy and hopeful for other teens who are struggling to find faith in their lyrics.

God is Good!

July 27, 2016 by Peggy

I was recently laid off from my job, and for the first time ever found myself unemployed. I volunteered to work at a job fair with KSBJ at The Woodlands Church. I prayed with many people that day, but there was one gentlemen who God specifically placed upon my heart. He was very sad and really needed a job. We prayed together and went our separate ways, but I often wondered about him. Today, I attended a job fair ministry and the same gentleman was there. He spoke and shared how the good Lord has blessed him with a job! To God Be the Glory!!!!

I spoke with him after the meeting, and he wanted to thank KSBJ for being at the job fair.  Keep up the AWESOME work KSBJ!

God Blessed Me

July 22, 2016 by Monica

My car was falling apart and I was stressing out about getting a new car. I was not sure if I could get approved. I prayed about it and said I would leave it in God’s hands. Well, my prayer worked and I was able to get the car I wanted. I thank God because He was able to find a way for me!

A Life of Grace

July 19, 2016 by david

Having been addicted to all types of pornography for many years, I decided that it was time I do something. On June 21st at 10am I met with my pastor to get help in overcoming this addiction. He helped me to realize that when I prayed the Sinners Prayer as a teenager, I was just going through the motions.

After talking to him for about 15 minutes, I came to see that the only way to truly conquer this addiction, was to place my life in the hands of Jesus. At 10:19 that morning, I bowed my head and confessed my sins to Jesus, and asked him to come and rule my life. I now know that He is the only way to live!

It is now 3 weeks later and I no longer have the desire to give in to the enemy and look at the stuff I had before. I know that it is not going to be an easy road that I now travel, but I AM NOT WALKING THE NARROW PATH ALONE, for my God and my Savior is right beside me each step of the way! I will no longer allow the enemy to control my life. Looking back, I can see the many times God tried to get me to turn my life around and I just kept putting it off. I am so thankful for His grace!

Marriage Restored!

July 18, 2016 by Karina Russell

All praise to my king!

After 16 years together, and 13 years of marriage, my husband left me and our 3-year old daughter. He said he had enough and it was best if he left.  Of course like any other marriage we’d had issues, that just kept piling on. Broken down, like I’ve never been before, I did the opposite of what the enemy would have liked for me to do: I stood up and kept living, I put everything in God’s hands, and I got myself a “prayer room” just like the movie! After selling our home, we went separate ways, him to his sister’s home and me to my brother’s.  It was hard, especially some days when I had to handle certain questions from my 3 year old: “Mom, where is daddy?”, “Mom, is daddy coming home?”, “Mom, I want daddy!”

My response from day one was to keep praying for him to come home…to pray, pray, pray for God to make a miracle happen! With my family, his family, close friends, church members, and of course KSBJ praying for him and my marriage, I’m happy to say that God answered our prayers!

Since 6/22/2016 we have been back together.  It didn’t happen like he had planned, but it happened how God planned it out.  A little rough night on 6/21/2016, but needless to say, I choose my husband over anything, I choose to save our marriage, I choose to give him another chance.  The best part of all this, is that my husband also has chosen God, he has re-accepted Christ in his life and he has made a promise with Him and with us that we will get the help we need to make this marriage work.

I thank you all for your prayers!  If I have to say one last thing, it is that God is always faithful! This is not the 1st time He has made a miracle in our lives. Our daughter was a result of God, with the help of In-vitro! We have a long road ahead, but if we keep our eyes focused on God, everything will fall into place!  I’m a true believer of my God who I know is alive and He is my king! And I will share my story anytime to anybody who is going through the same situation.

The Holy Spirit

July 11, 2016 by Kristen

The most amazing thing in my life just happened an hour ago. I was driving home from work, singing along to Big Daddy Weave’s Overwhelmed, when I felt a rush of the Holy Spirit. He was everywhere, but He was also next to me and sweeping through me. Like a breeze, but inside. A warmth but not the temperature kind. Tingling I guess is the right word too. I started crying without even knowing it. I was laughing with so much joy. Every guilt and shame just . . . left. I’ve never felt His presence so tangible. It was incredible. I can’t stop smiling!!

Sharathon 2016

June 24, 2016 by Ruth

The week of Sharathon started out a little rough for me. I had just gotten a protective order against my ex fiancé. Also there were many other things that week that made me feel so sad, lonely and hopeless. That is until I felt God tugging at my heart to become a giving listener of KSBJ. I made one pledge at the beginning of the week. I still felt Him tugging at my heart so I decided to also give to NGEN and additional gifts to KSBJ. Now that I have obeyed Him, He has blessed me with so much joy and peace. I am praising God that KSBJ is fully funded for another year! I can’t wait to see how he is going to bless my socks off in the following year.

My 6 Year Old Son Gave During Sharathon 2016

June 24, 2016 by Shae

We always listen to KSBJ in the car. My 6 year old son is finally starting to (think he knows) words to alot of the songs and sing along (some translations are hilarious). When you think they aren’t paying attention…they are!

We talked about Sharathon in the car today and he said, “I thought it was a marathon!” So I explained to him what it was all about, and I asked him if he wanted to give some of his money that he’s (unwillingly) saving. (He has a toy addiction and loves to spend as soon as he gets money). I asked him, “Do you want to give some of your money today?” (This was right after we had just left a couple stores where I had told him no to buying more toys and he had cried about it.) He immediately said, “Sure!” and committed to giving $2 of his money (he doesn’t have much saved at this point).

I am just glad to see him learning to think of others and not always himself and toys…some accountability/responsibility if you will. We are always blessed by everything we hear and we truly appreciate KSBJ!

He Will Provide!

June 24, 2016 by Dale

Today, 6/24/2016, I was on my way to my office, and God began speaking to me about giving. He said you pay for a radio service subscription, but what do you get from it? What does your community get from it?

He said sow your seed where fertile ground is (KSBJ). So without a second thought, I logged in to KSBJ once I got to the office and did so.

God sent me more work than I could handle for the next 12 months, enough to not be worried about the giving. I’ve always followed His Leading, and this is His way of blessing me & my house for serving Him.

I’ve learned a long time ago, YOU CAN NOT OUT GIVE GOD!!!! If God tells you to do it, put Him to the test & do it! He will not fail you, He WILL keep His WORD, and you will be blessed.

My 30 dollar switch

June 22, 2016 by Chels

For 7 years, I have been trying to get pregnant. In January, I started fertility treatments, believing in God for a miracle. Praise God, I am now 2 months pregnant! I had been paying for a gym membership at $30 a month but have not been able to go because of the treatment and now being pregnant! Today I decided to cancel my gym membership so that I can make a switch and give those 30 dollars a month to KSBJ. KSBJ has blessed me more times that I can count and God has spoken to me through the DJ’s and the music. Thank you for what you do KSBJ!

Car accident changed my life

June 21, 2016 by CONNIE

I graduated from college when I was 20, got a great job, drove a nice car, and was making good money. I was partying and traveling and thought I was very accomplished, but my heart was restless.

I began volunteering at church and making small changes in my life, but I still loved to go clubbing and listen to rap and hip-hop, and I drove an expensive sports car.

On my way home one afternoon, I ran a stop sign and caused an accident. I was at fault and luckily did not hurt anyone. I called my boyfriend to pick me up and made arrangements for a rental. I was very bitter with God. I was making changes in my life, so why did He allow this to happen? When I was living in sin, life was good, but when I decided to change my ways, bad things started happening. I was mad that it was not fair.

When I picked up my rental car at Enterprise, the radio station in the car was set to KSBJ. I had never listened to Christian music before, ever. I was irritated. I asked God, “Is this a sign? What do you want? Fine. I will listen.” That was the first day I ever listened to Christian music. The words touched my heart and slowly my heart of stone began to soften. The mustard seed was watered and my love for God and my neighbors began to grow, and it continues to grow today, 14 years later. Now I only listen to Christian music, and so does my family. From my own personal experience, what I listen to, even in the background, makes a significant impact on my soul. Listening to KSBJ has changed my life. Thank you for being an instrument of God’s grace and mercy.

I Have a Story to Tell

June 09, 2016 by Joshewa

This is my story. On August 5, 2004 I lost my life. But then to get it back is an extraordinary thing. Now I am a Christian man and I have a story to tell!

I was at Wal-Mart and I was followed by a gang. (I didn’t know any of them) It all happened so quickly…my friend & I were chased down at 110 MPH! Why so fast? I was driving so fast just trying to get away from them. We crashed and we flipped three times.

I am ok now…thank you God for sparing my life!! But at first they couldn’t get me breathing. It was God who put the right workers there at Memorial Herman to save me. I was in a coma for 3 weeks. I still have the pictures from the hospital. At first I couldn’t walk, talk, sit up, or breath on my own. I was on the machines, and I had to learn it all over again.

I have forgiven all of the gang members. Do they know it? Probably not, but God surely knows I have forgiven them. It doesnt matter what you been through. It only matters what you make out of it. I was given chance #2. I love God & his son Jesus Christ.

KSBJ is such an encouragement

June 06, 2016 by Lesley-Carron Brink

I moved to USA from South Africa 8 years ago and what a joy it was when I found your radio station! My car radio and all other radios in the house are set to KSBJ! I love the little devotional “Jesus Calling” and KSBJ is just the same to me. The times when I feel down or discouraged I turn on KSBJ and God will speak to me through the song you are playing.

Our oldest son has faced so many challenges and there was one day in particular where I felt speechless! Tired of praying and feeling discouraged. I got in my car and the song was saying “when you don’t know what to say, say Jesus!” This is just one of the examples. I thank you for all you do to bring hope, encouragement, joy, love and faith to many each and every day. I love you all and appreciate you KSBJ!

Long-Time Listener

May 31, 2016 by Emily

I moved to the Houston area from Florida 13 years ago and thought I’d only be passing through. I started listening to KSBJ almost immediately as I had listened to other Christian radio in other cities. I’ve been reflecting lately on my life and all that I’ve been through in the last decade, and realized how God has used this station so profoundly to keep me afloat through ups and downs.  Thank you. Thank you.

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!!


May 24, 2016 by Kristie

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!

Believing in the Power of Prayer

May 18, 2016 by Shannon

Over the past 2 years my mom’s health has declined and she has been in and out of the hospital. Her diabetes has taken over and has made it very difficult to move around or walk, stand for long periods of time. It’s been very difficult to watch and had taken a toll emotionally. The last visit to the hospital we realized she could no longer live independently because she had lost her vision in her left eye. She could no longer drive and in a since lost her independence. I was completely in distress, not knowing what to do or who I could turn to so I began to pray. I prayed for hours sometimes because I was to worried to sleep or even eat. I cried out to God our father and begged for help and mercy. The places my husband and I began to search were assisted living facilities that were way out of what we could afford. My mother was living on her fixed income. She was only receiving social security benefits and she had no other saving or property.

I prayed for help and within a week God had placed the right people in our life who provided a couple of places she could get the proper care she needed and was within her fixed income.

As I was moving her in the facility, I soon realized that the place was not in the county where my mom was receiving her medical care, and I began to panic. However, the owner of the facility began talking about a new location where she was going to move some of the residents, and asked if we were interested.

It turns out the new facility WAS in the county where she was receiving her medical care. I was so humbled of God’s grace and goodness. I’m forever grateful for all the help he has graced us with. I have changed from the inside after experiencing this miracle and hope to give back someday the same way God gave and provided for my mom. God’s love and mercy carries us through the most difficult times in our lives. Stay in faith, turn to God and his promises are true. I can testify to this for I have experienced his grace. I thank our creator every day.

I Shouldn’t Be Alive

May 16, 2016 by Frank

My story begins at 1 year old. My father told me that as a baby learning how to walk, I was diagnosed with spinal meningitis. My father rushed me to the hospital to find out what the cause was. As the doctors tried to help me, they accidentally put fluid on my brain, causing me to have seizures. During that time, my father had to re-teach me how to walk, talk, and use my arms.

Growing up as a child, I couldn’t live a normal life. There have been several close calls, when seizures while swimming almost caused me to drown, and seizures while riding my bike almost caused me to crash.

At the age of 18, I was given the opportunity to have a brain operation to fix the problem. At first it was a dream come true! My prayers have finally been answered! Then in a split second, realty kicked in. It’s not like you’re buying a car, or something you could return. So I asked the doctor if I could come back in a week with my answer. During that time, I asked a priest for advice. What he said changed my life. He told me: “If you ask someone a question, that’s God answering.”  So through the week, most answers I got were “Yes.” So even though I was scared to death, I went through the surgery, and I made it through with no problems.

Then, a month after 9/11 my trailer burned down to the ground. I had to jump out of the window to get out. A few years later, my appendix almost exploded, and I had to go through an emergency surgery. A month later, I was driving home, and the next thing I remember was waking up in the hospital. My father said someone pulled out in front of me, and I had to be “Life Flighted” to the hospital.

Now today, I am happily married, and I don’t take my life for granted. Today I try to do right by trying to learn the Bible and attending weekly church. The moral to the story is to be happy with what you have, because it could be worse! Thank you.

Help With House

May 16, 2016 by Kathy Law

I have been praying for a while now for help on my house. It is in poor condition. I asked a friend to pray for me. The person said they would pray for me, but then they asked if they could help. I said I could not find anyone to help paint my house. They looked at my house and said they could do it.

So the following week, we went for breakfast and then Home Depot for paint. My friend even bought the paint! So the following weekend they started the project, plus on Sunday we met for breakfast and went to Wal-Mart afterwards to buy stuff for my house which was a shock. So for 3 weekends we worked on the house, and my friend got the front and the sides of my house painted.

Then my friend said maybe they could help with the inside, which does need help, even though I never mentioned it. So this weekend the front hallway was painted as well! This person has been such a blessing to me and a good friend. I am so overwhelmed with joy that it brings me to tears. We are going to get more work done on the house, step by step. Little by little.

The Lord is a good, good father! Don’t ever stop praying for something! He answered my prayers in His time. I feel so blessed.

Coming Back to God

May 15, 2016 by Ruth

I had always listened to my CDs on the way home from work. I briefly turned to a radio station that was my favorite back in the 1990s. In January I started listening to KSBJ when they were having a thirty day challenge.

I did not realize how much I needed God and how far I had drifted away from him until I had a crisis in my family. At that time I was living with my then-fiance. His daughter and son-in-law moved in with us because they had nowhere else to go. I found myself calling and emailing KSBJ almost every night and day because I was so stressed out about the whole situation. I drifted further away from my fiance, his family, and my family and friends while I was communicating with KSBJ so much.

In March around Easter time, I seriously considered ending it all after I had a big argument with my fiance. I did not want to live in isolation anymore. I an so glad I didn’t end my life. The next day I was driving to work when I finally realized how deeply God loves me and all of us. The song “By Your Side” by Tenth Avenue North came on the radio. I felt so much love and joy after hearing that song.

I still thank God for the situation at my house in April. He granted me the strength and courage to get out of an unhealthy, abusive relationship and house. I know I could not have done that without God’s help. Words can not express how much my family, friends, church, coworkers and the DJs, volunteers, and listeners of KSBJ mean to me. They pointed me back to a right relationship with God. They are so faithful in praying for me and supporting me through the ending of my abusive relationship. Thanks be to God for KSBJ!

I’m Healed!

May 12, 2016 by Dee

Driving to work today I heard Rachelle on the morning show. She was talking about how she & her husband lost 100 lbs together. I think that was amazing but it encouraged me to share my story. Maybe I can be a help to someone as well.

On January 2nd 2015, I received my doctor’s report. This report was the worst I have ever gotten. My doctor asked me to make an immediate appointment. So I did and we discussed different options that I could do to help me. I really did not want to do surgery but I told him lets get a plan and if the plan fails, then I’ll consider surgery. So we came up with a basic plan to make healthier choices and exercise. By April 2015 I had lost 20 lbs. I felt good and I was determined that I can continue this and that the hard part was over (training myself to eat better and do something for exercise). In April 2015 I decided I wanted to join the gym and get a trainer. I spoke with a wonderful friend of mine and she encouraged me through the entire process, even going to the gym with me so I can sign up. My trainers weren’t working out, it just seemed like we could not get in sync with one another. I went through 4 trainers before I found the perfect fit for me. We are still hanging in there together.

On December 27 2015 I heard something that I thought I would never hear. My doctor told me that the sickness I have been battling with for almost 20 years was gone & I no longer needed to take medication. This was the massive change of my mindset. I never thought I was going to hear those words. I thought this sickness was going to be my long life sentence. BUT GOD!!! I won’t say it was easy to do because I have had struggles throughout the entire process, but with the support of family and friends and God always whispering in my ear that I can do it, I was able to keep going. My reports are still coming back positive and I am looking great and feeling even greater.

I must add, that many times I’m driving in my car listening to KSBJ, and a song comes on the radio to encourage me and tell me don’t give up. I will never forget me yelling in the car talking to the devil when I was at one of my lows, and Mandisa’s song Overcomer came on. And I told the devil I am an overcomer and I will go through and become victorious! Today I am celebrating a total weight loss of 80 lbs. Thank you for everything that each of you do on a daily basis for so many. Continue to let the Lord do His work in you. You are truly blessing so many. Much love to each of you!!!!

God’s Healing Hands

April 29, 2016 by Giselle Rodriguez

When I was a child, my father wasn’t always there for my family and I. He worked hard to provide for our family so he was rarely home. Whenever he was home, he was either angry or he was happy. The times that he was happy, he would smile at me and make me laugh. But when he came home angry, I was afraid because he would yell a lot. As I grew up, his anger built up and his happiness faded.

It wasn’t until my father and mother were hanging on by a thread to their marriage when my father started seeking Christ. One day when I was 8 years old, my father and I were outside, and he was saying he felt as if the world was at an end. God spoke through me and gave me the words “There’s still hope.” Those words pushed my father to try to be better for his family and for God. But growing up I still wasn’t that close to my Dad. Some part of me was still afraid but another part of me wanted my dad back.

I’m 14 years old and I have made many mistakes…Mistakes that have distanced us much more than I would imagine…but one day we were in church and the feeling of the Holy Spirit was strong as I cried out for strength for my family and I.

As I cried out, my father was crying too, and I heard a voice telling me to lay my hands on him to pray for him. In my surprise he hugged me. The only words I had to say to him were “I’m sorry” and “I can’t do this without you.” He told me “You’re not alone anymore” and “You’ll always be my little girl.” This may not be a big story, but I have my father back thanks to God’s healing in our relationship. God has broken that chain. All I can do is say “Thank You God!”

God Heals

April 26, 2016 by JC

A few days ago my husband and I posted a prayer for our baby with Fetal Hydrops condition. Today God answered our prayers. For those of you who have prayed, God hears you! Today doctors took another ultrasound and they were shocked when they realized that the fluid that was in our little baby has drained. Only God has drained it! God cured our baby and we are very grateful for this miracle. Our baby looks good except for two little cysts on his neck. I have faith that God will take care of those as well. Our God is capable.

For those of you who are sick, have a specific desire or a problem, please turn to the Lord and believe He hears you when you pray. Please don’t lose hope. He will answer your prayers and will guide you in troubling times, in Jesus name.

Flood of Love

April 18, 2016 by Lauren

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!

Life-Saving Healing

April 06, 2016 by Hallie

When I was 12 (2007) I was diagnosed with a condition called Pseudotumor Cerebri. Medications were working and I was getting better until suddenly I became allergic. With the spinal pressure raising too quickly and the fear of having a stroke, I underwent surgery to have a lumbar shunt placed in 2011 to help drain the fluid off my brain and into my stomach.

In October of 2012 I had a woman at my church pray over me at an altar call. Two days later I felt like something wasn’t right. My headaches were back but this time because the shunt was removing too much fluid. I went into my doctor who did not believe in God and told him want happened. Of course he did not believe me but he knew my pressure was too low so he did a revision and turned the flow of the shunt down.

3 months later, in January 2012, I was back because it was happening again so he agreed to turn it down to the lowest possible setting, still not believing that it should come out. The following month I was back. He kept saying that I will have to have it put back in if he removes it but I insisted.

So he removed the shunt and I am now on my 4th year being free from Pseudotumor Cerebri. With it and my shunt I couldn’t do the things most teenagers do. I spent 1 year in Pediatric ICU because of it. To this day my doctor still calls me and asks me to pray for him and over his patients (no names or information of course just that they need prayer). I was told when I got pregnant that it would come back, but I have a now 3 year old daughter and my pseudotumor has not come back one time. This was all God’s doing. They say that once you are as old as I was when I got the shunt (16) that I would have to have it my entire life. I will never be grateful enough that God healed me of this!

My Difference

April 03, 2016 by maria

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.


April 02, 2016 by colette

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

March 31, 2016 by Ali

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

March 25, 2016 by Ruth

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

March 23, 2016 by Daniel

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

March 17, 2016 by Tini Siders

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!

March 15, 2016 by Lauren Franklin

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.

Who was our helper?

March 04, 2016 by Mary

It was around 3:30 am when I was awakened by a loud thump. In all reality I normally say to myself “oh Alex fell again”, roll over, and go back to sleep. Well not on this morning. This morning I felt like someone had sat me up so I hurried out of my bedroom to find my husband Alex laying on his back on the floor. I called out his name and shook him and he didn’t answer. He was out for a while and wasn’t breathing. He then finally gasped for air, blubbered his lips and opened his eyes. I helped him sit up and that’s when I saw all the blood on the floor coming from his head. I then hurried and knocked on my daughter Audrey’s bedroom door. When she opened the door I saw the faces of 2 people standing there but only my daughter walked out and closed the door behind her. I assumed the other one was her husband Miguel.

Audrey and I took my husband to the emergency room where the doctor put 6 staples in his head and after 2 days they let him go home. Later that evening Audrey, Miguel and I were discussing what happened and I said “When I knocked on the bedroom door and Audrey opened the door I saw you right behind her Miguel but I guess she didn’t want you to see her Dad in that condition so she hurried and closed the door.” He said “I never got up, I thought maybe our daughter was up crying or something.”  So who was the person standing behind Audrey? We believe it must have been an angel.

I told my story to two of my closest friends and had a nurse confirm our suspicion that my husband may have died that night and come back. I truly believe someone perhaps an angel or maybe even God but someone helped us that Saturday morning and I thank God for giving my husband a second chance! My prayers are that God will touch his heart and heal him in the name of Jesus.

My husband has been off hard liquor since August 12, 2015 after this happened, and I thank God everyday and it’s in God’s hands and we are truly blessed. Our struggle with alcohol has been long and hard and my husband has gone to alcohol rehab 3 times before. I know my God is real because there were days when I truly didn’t know how I was going to feed my family. But God always came through for us and I’m talking about delicious home cooked meals without even asking or letting people know we had no food. How great is my God! Today my husband is doing well and he even has a full time job. Praise God! He doesn’t make as much as his previous job and our house is in foreclosure but I’m not worried. We’re happy and I know God has a plan for us. I’m just very very thankful that God removed the awful chains of alcohol addiction from my husband! On March 31, 2016 we God willing will complete 26 years of marriage and I thank God for all he has helped me. I know God has a plan for me. Jeremiah 29:11.

Power of prayer

February 25, 2016 by Diana Terry

A very good friend of mine, her name is Betty and is 74, found out a few years back that her breast cancer had came back, after 20 years. She went through all the chemo but ended up having a double mastectomy. She does not live here, and I don’t keep in touch as much as I should. So when I talked to her at the end of January she shared what had been going on with her. That is when I found out that she had lung cancer and 4 spots on her liver. Doctors weren’t too worried with the liver as they figured when she did the chemo on her lungs that it would take care of that also. So she went in for her first treatment only to find out that the chemo helped 2 of the spots but the other 2 were growing. That is where I came into the picture as they were going to be coming to Houston to MDS for radiation.

I suggested we meet for lunch when they got here, as they always come in a day early. So we met Sunday afternoon to eat. She has lost all her hair, but is in very good spirits. Her husband even told us that the doctors said they might have to cut out the part of her liver that was infected as it was a fast growing cancer.

I felt so compelled to pray for her. I prayed for her every morning for three days, as she was to have another scan that Wednesday morning. I called her on my way home from work to get the results Wednesday evening, only to find out that the spots on her liver were gone and the spots on her lungs were almost gone. They said she will probably only do one more chemo treatment and she should be good and in remission.
All I said was PRAISE THE LORD! Prayer is such a powerful thing, and our Lord does answer prayers!

God Answered My Prayer!

February 19, 2016 by Shamira Moreno

My father was in ICU for 2 months and doctors said he would never wake up. I had to make the decision whether or not to take him off life support. I couldn’t live with the fact that I will have the guilt of taking my father off life support but the Doctors said they would make a decision if I didn’t make one soon. I prayed that my father for one last time would open his eyes and look at me his daughter. The day the doctors were making the decision my father woke up and his breathing tube was removed. He was conscious, he was awake, he was crying and telling me in a raspy voice that God had better plans. 2 days later my father passed away. All glory to God that I will see my father again and I know he is in heaven. I thank God for all his love and all his mercy, that my father is not suffering anymore and he is in a better place. My mother died when I was 3 years old and by my dad passing it hurt me, but with time I have gotten closer to God and committed all my siblings to follow Jesus as well, and that He has better plans for us.

My turn around

February 15, 2016 by Aley

I didn’t have a phone and I was very mad. Everyone my age had a phone. So I got a texting app on my iPod with my own “phone number” and everything. One day, I was playing a game online. A boy chatted with me and asked me for my number. I told him I had a phone and a number and gave it to him. I felt so cool. But I was nervous and weary. I’d never texted any boy besides my father and brother. At first, we talked about normal things, like things about our daily life and activities. But soon he started adding hearts to the end of his messages and told me I was probably beautiful, so I should send a picture of myself. I didn’t at first, but after awhile l I sent him one. From then on, he told me he loved me and I was his princess. And I believed it. I didn’t even think about my Jesus and at church I glazed my eyes over and blocked out the messages. I became ugly. I wore so much makeup, it didn’t look good. I stayed up all night texting him and my grades in school failed because I kept falling asleep. My online “friend” soon became very personal asking me questions about my love life. I was now blind and took it as love. I thought I had everything I needed. A boyfriend. Like everyone else. But I still felt empty, but looked to him to fill my gap.

My dad took my iPod one day and started looking through it. I immediately grabbed it and wrestled it from him, losing. He gave me a second chance, knowing something was up, and asked me I was hiding anything. I told him no. When I went to bed, I tried holding my breath to kill myself. I knew they would find out everything so I prayed to Jesus for the first time in months that they won’t find out. But He had other plans. My dad came in my room with a stone face and brought me downstairs. My parents talked to me, silently, but sadly. They asked me if I still was a Christian, and how could I do this. How could I? I didn’t even know. I slept fitfully that night, but the best in months. Weights were lifted of my shoulders by telling them, but I was still mad about not having my boyfriend to tell me that I was pretty, I was smart, and I was worth it. My makeup, iPod, computer, and nail polish were taken away. I felt empty. Months passed, and Jesus kept passing through my mind.

Finally, I re-accepted Jesus into my life. The hole was filled! I felt new and changed. I knew I didn’t need anyone to tell me I was pretty, Jesus could help me! Now I know that if this whole thing had never happened to me, I might have done it now. Jesus turned this bad thing into a lesson. Now I will follow Him forever! My new motto is: IF YOU FEEL THE NEED FOR HUMANLY DESIRES, FILL THE HOLE WITH JESUS!

Nothing is impossible for God

On Wednesday February 10, 2016 they told my uncle that he had stage 4 cancer in his pancreas. Yesterday (February 14, 2016) they said they can’t believe it but he doesn’t have any more cancer!

God Listens Billboard

February 12, 2016 by Lisa

A couple of years ago I was going through a divorce that I did not want. I was devastated, distraught, lost and didn’t know where to turn. I prayed one Sunday and cried so hard and ask God to please give me a sign, a clear cut sign that I couldn’t miss as to what I am supposed to do next? I fell asleep and had a dream. In my dream I was driving down 45 South, God spoke to me and said you’re heading in the wrong direction, you need to turn around. So I immediately jumped off the highway in such a hurry I went too fast and spun out of control. As I was reaching the turn around, my car slid up on the curb under the overpass and died right there, and wouldn’t start back up. I looked around and it was not a nice area, there was a big fence with junk all behind it and I thought why would they have that stuff like that by the highway? I looked up in my dream and said God I need you now, please help me, I’m very scared! And he clearly said, remain calm and simply wait, I’ve got you. I woke up right then.

Two weeks went by and I was heading to an area just inside the loop to meet a client. When I arrived it was a pretty scary place and I prayed for safety but went in to meet the client ... Once finished I was trying to hurry to get out of there, and had already programed my GPS for my next client so I turned it on and started to drive… my GPS had me heading South on 45 and it dawned on me my next client is in Conroe, why South? So I got off the next exit to turn around to go in the correct direction ... as I did I realized this is the same place as my dream!! I got goose bumps on my arms as I approached the overpass area and sure enough, there was the fence and all the junk under there!  I got goose bumps all over now ... I slowed down to about 2 miles an hour as I wondered what could this mean?? Then it dawned on me, what’s on the other side of this bridge? As I crept my car up slowly and automatically looked up at the sky towards God, the very first thing I saw on the other side of that overpass was the KSBJ billboard that simply said God Listens ... I broke into tears knowing He heard my cries, He knows my heart, He knows my pain, and He has me in his arms.

I ended up writing a book basically due to this and some other similar things that followed. My book came out this week on The title is: Life Before And After Death, With God’s Love.
I have complete faith that God is directing my every step. Thank you for your sign!

Music to Pump You UP!

January 25, 2016 by Emily

While in the car headed to my son’s basketball game my husband had the radio on a 90’s station playing some old tunes loud and considered hard core in our day.  He asked my son if the the music was getting him pumped because this is what he would listen to to get energized before his basketball games.  My son said “No”.  “So, what song would pump you up?”, my husband inquired.  My son replied “God’s Not Dead”. My heart swelled that my son finds power in songs about our God and his Savior and I’m appreciative to the Newsboys for creating hard hitting music that can pump my son up for sports and the Lord.

Trust in the Lord

January 06, 2016 by Melissa

I was on my way to court for my ongoing divorce case which has been open for almost 2 years in March. Of course for peace of mind I listen to KSBJ in the mornings and Pam Kelly was talking about having patience in His plans and quoted Proverbs 3:5 which is “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding”. And when I heard that, I was like wow, you know this case has been going on for so long and every time something has gone wrong with the case I always got upset and questioned why things were going the way they were. I did not understand why things were going so badly. My daughter’s father has been out of our lives for 2 years and has not appeared for any court dates nor had any contact with us. We were not able to find him to finalize the divorce. When I get to the court house, I always felt sick to my stomach, but I went in with an open mind and heart just hoping it would go well because the first time a default divorce was granted without child support. Not this time. We had a different judge and they finalized it along with granting child support. I know divorces aren’t something right, but I suffered alot of emotional pain and verbal abuse through this marriage and knew in my heart I could no longer be with this person. So I know God has a plan for me and I just needed to be patient with everything! I am at a loss for words for how grateful I am for listening this morning. Thank you KSBJ for all the encouragement you give me to keep going every day for my daughter.

My righteous king Jesus Christ

January 04, 2016 by Javier

I have been an alcoholic for a long time and have lived my life for myself and never thinking of others. This past 2 weeks of my life I have found comfort in Jesus as he saved me from myself and for the first time in a long time I feel alive ...  I have started going back to church, reading my bible and reading anything I can about giving myself to God. I am thirsty and I will drink from God’s cup as he shows me the way to his kingdom.

Joy in my own holiday schedule

December 21, 2015 by Amy

I’m a divorced mom of two girls. They are blessed to have two good parents, so we share custody.  Every other year they are with their Dad for the week of Christmas, and this is one of those years. Most people will feel sad when they hear that I will be alone for Christmas.  I am thankful for their compassion and their open invitations to go have family dinner with them.  This year I am sharing my joy with all the single parents out there who are sharing their children for the holidays.  I am more than happy to spend this week alone.  I am so full of JOY! Why am I so full of JOY? I get an entire extra week to go shopping before my girls are back.  I can take my time and I’m in no rush.  We get to have our own holiday next week!  #blessed! Because I’m a school teacher, and last week was so chaotic and busy, that I am happy to have some time to relax and sleep before spending every waking moment with my sweet girls. Because this year I get to attend as many Christmas Eve services as I want, and I can sing along without embarrassing my kids. Because I honestly do NOT have a talent for holiday decorating, nor do I have much money this year, and their dad and stepmom do, so this year I know they’re in good hands having a fabulous time for the holidays. Because I love reading and hiking, and I get a few days to do that before the kiddos get back. Because next week I get to hear all their stories.  They tell me everything, and they love that I listen!  So I get to hear story after story of their fun week.  Their happiness brings me joy. ( does the fact that the younger one will exaggerate her stories and the older one will insist on correcting her every time… cracks me up…) Because earlier this year I came to know Jesus, and I have been more at peace this year than any other year, and I thank Him for the gifts of Love and Peace He brings.  To all the single parents out there who do not have their kiddos on Christmas this year:  My prayer is that you will enjoy this week and I hope you get to have your own fabulous holiday when your kids get back.  If you’re an extrovert, I pray you have family and friends with whom you can share this time.  If you’re an introvert (like me), I pray you enjoy the quiet time with a fabulous book and hot chocolate.  And I pray you will all feel God’s peace and love in your hearts.

Choosing joy every day

December 16, 2015 by Donna

I was married for 37 years and after struggling the last 3 years of my marriage to keep it together, I finally relented and gave in to the divorce. I had not been joyful in my marriage and had become quite bitter, but through trying to save my marriage, I chose Joy every day.  Shortly after my divorce 2 years ago, I found a Godly man and we are sharing life together.  I choose joy every day because I’ve been on the other side and it’s not pretty nor satisfying at all.  I can and do choose Joy because of the sacrifice my Lord and Savior made for me.  There’s no greater love than that He has shown me through His sacrifice on the cross.  I praise Him for always being there for me.  If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.  That’s the truth I hold on to.

Amazing true story

December 15, 2015 by David

On 12/15/15, I was in a store called Palais Royal. There was a man there who asked an employee if they could sell him the materials to wrap a gift and also help him wrap it because he couldnt do it himself. A young lady assisted him, and it turned out that all he wanted to wrap was a single sheet of paper. As she began to help him wrap the piece of paper in a beautiful box with a bow and all the trimmings, he started a conversation with her. He said that he had been diagnosed a few months earlier with a terminal illness and given only weeks to live. He and his wife had children, some of whom were still young, and the thought of leaving his wife and children without a husband or father had broken his heart. His oldest son had died a couple of years earlier, and the grief over his son’s death had devastated him so severely that he ended up becoming sick with this terminal illness due to his body having given up the will to live. It was very sad. Then the young lady wanted to know what the paper was and why he wanted it gift wrapped, though she was obviously too polite to ask him directly. It turns out that shortly after his diagnosis, he became confined to a wheelchair, had lost the ability to speak, and had some other things happen too. His family had even purchased his casket and made his funeral arrangements with his input. As the two stood there wrapping the gift and talking, the man turned away several different times to hide his face, but it was clear that he was overcome with emotion and trying hard not to cry in public. As it turns out, it was not tears of sorrow he was fighting back, but tears of joy. You see, with support from his wife and her prayers standing with him, he had at a certain point decided to CHOOSE JOY in spite of everything. Once he decided that, his body began to heal. He no longer needed the wheelchair, and he was speaking clearly as if he had never been sick. And the paper he was wrapping? He explained that he had received the paper earlier that day, and it contained results of medical testing. He said that it showed him to be one hundred percent healed and that he expected to be around for his wife and children for a long time to come. The young lady was so sweet and as they were finishing up she said that she wished him and his wife long lives together. He asked her to write the card for him, and to make it “to Mommy and Daddy”, and it would be a surprise for his wife on Christmas. She wrote out the card to Mommy and Daddy, then added below it: “Love, God”. This is a true story, and I know it is, because I was that man.

God is always listening

December 14, 2015 by Gina

My family has been struggling financially for sometime.  In fact, my husband has moved temporarily to another state to earn some extra money to cover our rising medical bills, home bills, and life in general.  With much struggle, we were able to pay for the mortgage, vehicle, and even save enough money for Christmas travel to visit him in the North.  However, this took the entire paycheck leaving my son and I with $20 until payday.  We were almost out of everything to eat on Saturday.  At 4pm on Saturday, I made a decision to take some books and clothing to sell at a consignment store.  It was successful and I was paid $38.25.  I immediately stopped at the local grocery store to purchase meat, bread, and some staples to cover us for the remainder of the week.  When I checked out at the counter my grand total was $38.10.  GOD provided a miracle for me and my family. He always listens to our prayers.  Thank you!

Merry Christmas!

My friends Niece

December 09, 2015 by Donna

The Friday after Thanksgiving, my very good friend found out that her niece was taken to the ER. she is from Idaho, but, was visiting her relatives near Fort Worth, TX. She had been sick with what she thought was a stomach virus. She is an alcoholic and had been told by her doctor that she was going to die if she did not quit drinking. The 2 weeks she was sick, she hardly ate at all. At the hospital, she was diagnosed with liver failure, a severe infection in her colon which was about to rupture, her kidneys were not working and her ammonia level was deadly. Lots of prayers have been said for her, including those at KSBJ, she was not expected to live through the night. But, she did. She was not expected to make it through the next night. But, she did. I asked God for a complete healing for her. She has 2 young children and they need their mom. Well, this story is really long if I tell everything as it happened, but, to make it shorter, it is a miracle that she collapsed in the Fort Worth area and taken to the hospital she was taken to. Tonight, I received a picture on my phone showing her without the ventilator. She is responding to commands, breathing on her own, off of the dialysis and still alive!!! What a blessing. She has not spoken or really opened her eyes yet, but, what a long way she has come. All due to the power of prayer. Thank You Lord for always being there for me and for all the miracles You perform daily. I have seen one.

Broken Together

November 11, 2015 by Donna

This song has new meaning for me.  While I tried to save a 37-year marriage, my husband just didn’t value it and it ended a couple of years ago.  In God’s perfect timing, I found a new love and we have worked hard to build a wonderful relationship. It hasn’t come without baggage as people in their 50s and 60s often have after failed marriages.  When I hear “Broken Together”, it reminds me that our love will never be perfect, there will be hard times and misunderstandings sometimes, and past lives to intertwine in our new relationship, but as long as we recognize we are all broken, with God, brokenness makes you stronger, not weaker.  We both have broken relationships and are “broken together”.  God can and does heal relationships, hurts, our past and forgives as we are called to forgive.  I am so thankful for a loving God and one who truly cares not only about me, but about those in my life.  I am thankful for my new love and for the healing God is doing in both of us.

Favoring Love

November 10, 2015 by Enrique

My name is Enrique and my wife’s name is Jeffrey Genesse. We married September 2nd 2015. We have known each other since June 2015. We clicked right away, I have never been so connected to any human being like I am with my wife. I knew the first day, I was going to spend the rest of my life with this amazing person. I haven’t left her side once. My wife was born in El Salvador, moving to Houston Texas as a child, her mother raised her alone. I know of some awesome people (my mother raised four children while getting a Doctorates and fighting Leukemia), however my wife and her mother exemplifies true determination and living the American dream. My wife was diagnosed with Lupus as a young girl, having to go through chemo, she learned the value of a simplistic lifestyle. Her outlook on how life and great opportunities are, gives me the motivation to dedicate my life to ensuring her happiness. It has been an experience for the record books. Every moment we share is one of fabulous memories and lots of laughter. I was born in Houston Texas, my birth mother came here from Nigeria. I was adopted my mother is Caucasian and my father was Hispanic (hence the name). My father passed away from a tumor in 1995, moving me, my mother, and three sisters (my two younger sisters are adopted, all from different bloodlines), to Colorado. Regardless of what life has put in front of us, we have overcome it all with the love and favor from the Lord. We are a humble couple who have financial struggles, however we keep a attitude of gratitude. My wife and I have God at the center of our marriage and love each other unconditionally. We even got married without rings, ceremony, family, or anything. Just the Lord and our Love. Please and thank you for your prayers.

God saved my daughter from dying

November 10, 2015 by Christine

It was a regular day at my home with the kids. I had just got off of work and going through my regular routine of fixing dinner. My kids were playing outside and came in to ask if they can go to the high school across the street I said yes so they went. I get a phone call saying that my daughter just got hit by a truck and I thought it was a sick joke so I laughed a little bit and asked if this was a prank call the person said it again and where it happened. I ran with my one year old son in my arms across the street and saw people everywhere, cops and my daughter lying on the road. It was like I was in a movie. She was life flighted to the hospital and my friend drove me to the hospital. In that moment I was so mad at God I was kicking and screaming and yelling at God for letting this happen. The drive seemed like an eternity and I just wanted to be with my daughter. Finally got to the hospital where my daughter was treated. She only ended up with two concussions and a scar on her face. She made it out alive! Thanks to God for saving my daughters life.
