Here are a few of the stories we have received:
I was feeling overwhelmed last spring. My mom had a stroke, and I was praying for her. I was also trying to keep the rest of my life in balance (work, family, schedules, etc) As I was driving from work to the hospital, the lyrics ' God may let you bend, but He won't let you break'- were just what I needed to hear! That song continues to help me put my life into perspective, and it always gives me strength when I'm feeling weak. Thank you for continuing to provide daily inspiration. Your station is a vital part of each day for me!
I listen to The Q every day on the way to work and its one of the only things that's been getting me through such a tough time in my life. I felt that God was calling me to donate, even a little, so others can benefit from it too. I ended up getting laid off today and I almost changed my mind but then I remembered Matthew West's line of I throw a twenty in the plate but I never give 'til it hurts. I may not be able to afford a twenty anymore but I still wanted to give something.
Forgiveness by Matthew West is a song that reminds me of what I am called to do as a Christian-forgive and love like God does. Any time I hear a worship song I immediately feel closer to God. side note- My 5 1/2 year old son listens to the Q99.7 at bedtime and throughout the night, he really enjoys listening and in the morning tells me what the weather is going to be for the day. Thank you for giving me a radio station I feel good leaving on all the time: morning, noon AND night!
It's not just the music, but those of you who play it and those who call in with a thankful heart. We all struggle with day to day life issues but it's great to hear how God works things out for those who cry out for him to move on their behalf. When the break through comes he is glorified and our faith is built up.
So thankful for your prayer this morning for our kids on their first day of school! Thank you for ministering in such a personal and powerful way over the airwaves. You guys are amazing at The Q! God bless you!!!
I was recently struggling with some personal issues and I was afraid that God was going to leave me. But then I got into the car and your station was playing Manafest's 'Never Let You Go' and I felt like in that moment, God was speaking to me through the song and telling me not to give in and that He will never leave me and never forsake me. It was a great encouragement!
The Q 99.7 keeps me encouraged every day! I share words of encouragement, prayers, and phrases of songs with others to help encourage them as well. It seems like whenever I need something to get me through, I can turn on the Q and the perfect song is on! So thank you!!!
I just wanted to send a thanks to all who are involved in this ministry. I don?t know if you realize how big the impact you make. I am originally from the Franklin county area, but am currently overseas on an internship. But I?m so thankful that I?m able to still listen to your station online. It?s encouraging and a little bit of home all in one. Thanks so much for all your work you do. It may seem tedious some days. I know how that goes; but everything we do in His name for His kingdom is not in vain. Keep it up!
I praise God for the good work that you do. You lift people up when they need it, and you make their days even more joyful when they are happy. I am a mother of three, a wife of a fireman/paramedic, and a Junior at the AIC Nursing school. Life gets very busy on our end, but I know that we can do all things through Christ that strengthens us. I listen to your radio station every time when I drive to and from school. It helped me to organize my thoughts and to calm down before nursing exams, and directed me to pray for opportunities to share the Gospel (directly or indirectly) with people that I come across. God bless you. Keep up the good work. (I love the fact that sometimes you use the scripture during the broadcast - God's Word will never be spoken in vane.)
I cant put into words how much this radio station has impacted my life. I listen to the Q 99.7 everyday. Through the ups and the downs these songs keep me going. So many times I have been stressed or struggling with my home life or work life and the right song comes on at the right moment and it brings me to tears. It is a constant reminder that God is always listening and is always here for us even during those low moments. I believe God has spoken to me many times through the music and the message. Having been away from attending church this station has kept my faith strong and also given me the courage to want to find a church again. I love that the listeners are referred to as the "Q family" because that is what it feels like. I feel connected to a group of people I have never met but it is no nice to know that so many people out there are being touched by God through the music the same way I am. The Q 99.7 you have a profound impact on my life, thank you for all that you do!
How has The Q 99.7 helped you? Take a moment to share your story. It could very well encourage someone else too!
