Here are a few of the stories we have received:
I am a teacher at a school serving underprivileged children. I know this is what God has called me to do here on earth, but it is easy to lose sight of that in the chaos of a school day. There have been so many days when I have felt like giving up, but the Q 99.7 restored my faith. I am confident that God has spoken to me through your station. I always tune in at 8am to hear the Bible verse chosen for the day, and it is amazing how relevant they always are to my current situation, mood, or perspective. When I hear God's word echo through my speakers, I am reminded of His love and inspired to continue to serve Him. I know that when God reaches me through your station He gives me the power to share His love with the children I teach and empower them to become great people. A million thanks for all that you do!
My entire family including me had strayed away from God for years. We decided to walk on our own path instead of the path that God chose for us. My marriage was failing, I was losing my family and purpose in life. It was in the summer of 2011 that my wife was diagnosed with a seizure disorder of unkown origin. We were in the process of separating when she was diagnosed. I felt like my whole world was caving in. Never did I ever imagine that I would lose everything. I didn't know what to do. It was at my lowest point that I was driving and listening to the radio, looking for something that didn't remind me of her. I hit the seek button and stumbled across your station. 'The Way' by Jeremy Camp was playing. It immediately hit me and I started sobbing. I knew there was only one way at that point to save my family. I recommitted my life to Jesus!! It was God, through the Q99.7, through that song, using you to reach out to me!! We were able to reconcile, perservere and save our family!! Your station has been such a blessing to our family. We don't listen to any secular music anymore, only the Q99.7. It has made such a difference and even my kids (6 of them altogether) know all the words to just about every song. We sing them together and it creates such a peace in our lives. We even just recently got back from the Cape and the one thing my family said they missed the most, other than our church family, was the Q99.7!!! You have no ideal how long people in our area have waited for a station like this. Keep doing God's work and never ever doubt what a blessing your station is to the communities you serve!!!
My wife just left with our kids to go to her parents and plans on filing for divorce on Monday. All I can think is 'my world is falling apart'. But I just heard Just Be Held by Casting Crowns and the line that says 'your world's not falling apart it's falling into place' really spoke to me. I don't see how any good can come from all of this right now, but I just need to stop holding on and just be held!
I love that you encourage us... I can be driving and start getting stressed thinking about what needs to be done or aggressive drivers, and you pray or give me some scripture and I realize that God is in control, and I need to just relax and let it be. I love that I can sing along and let the tears flow down as I feel in community with you, and that much closer to God. Thank you for your commitment.
I love starting my day in the best way and the Q 99.7 does just that sharing positive bible quotes first thing in the morning. I just got my license and I love having the Q 99.7 on because I know God is driving right next to me in the car, it has opened me up to drive away my fear of driving and driving alone.
I started listening to the Q 99.7 4 years ago. I stepped away and stopped listening a year ago.. and I felt empty.. recently I started listening again. And I realized how much I need God in my life and I got caught up in myself and being selfish. But one night I had a dream and realized I can't do anything without putting God first and having him lead me.. And now I have been listening to The Q 99.7 on my hour drive to work to Pittsfield and I put it on my work computer while I dispatch 911 calls.. I feel so lifted and happy and all around peaceful.. Thank you for being soo awesome and always playing awesome music. The radio station is soo lifting and makes me feel good 24/7.
Musi8c has always been therapeutic for me. I battle with major depression and PTSD and the Q 99.7 has been healing many times. You always play the right song at the right moment. Thank you!
Recently, I just went through a period where my summer job made me backslide in my faith and I was overcome with fear and regret. God used the music and the DJs from The Q 99.7 to remind me how precious I am in His eyes and that He loves me no matter what. Whenever I listen to The Q 99.7, I always feel God's presence and I feel like I am being drawn closer to Him.
I wanted to send this comment in appreciation to Nate in the morning. His prayers are very powerful and he is so connected with God. When he prays I feel God speaking directly into my spirit. Thank you Nate for your boldness in Christ.
I don't have a special story right now but The Q 99.7 helps me EVERY day. Every now and then, I think I want to listen to the country station that I listened to before I discovered The Q. I might listen to it for 30 minutes or so but before I know it, The Q is 'calling me' and I have to change the station! I feel incomplete without it on the radio. Thank you all so much for the blessing you are in my life.
How has The Q 99.7 helped you? Take a moment to share your story. It could very well encourage someone else too!
