I am a monthly donor to the 89Q station. My story is one of, like most, of a traumatic turn of events that unexpectedly came into my life. While the situation was difficult and I felt I had always been a Christian, praying and listening to the station gave me hope and the song Blessings by Laura’s Story would make me tear up every time I heard it along with other songs. Other radio stations, I feel, focus on the negative and trivial things of this world but this station gives me a wonderful feeling as I listen to it and the hope and encouragement I need each day. I know there will be more crosses to bear in my lifetime, I can definitely say that sometimes truly our darkest times when we need Jesus in retrospect are the most amazing times to get to know and appreciate His sacrifices and love!! This world is a troubled one and I truly believe if more people just listened to God’s plan for us, this world would be a much more peaceful, loving place. Songs deliver a message when we listen. I truly can’t imagine what I would listen to without it. Mike and Emily are the best in the morning!! Sometimes they make me giggle but I always feel so good before I head off to work. Through my difficult situation that took a toll on me emotionally and at times physically, I remember those lyrics “‘Cause what if your blessings come through raindrops. What if your healing comes through tears. What if a thousand sleepless nights are what it takes to know You’re near.” He is near, we just have to ask. My healing did come through tears as did my blessings. The Father is always ready to welcome the prodigal son back with love!! Please give and support the 89Q ministry!!
