The song “Strong Enough” by Matthew West came on and I feel like that song tells my story. My mother is an alcoholic and I haven’t seen her in over a year because of it, which has been really hard for me. I’ve struggled with repetitive sins of my own for a long time. I’m going into my senior year of high school and I’m terrified of making decisions about college. I want to move forward in my walk with God, but sometimes I feel like I get so overwhelmed with everything I’m carrying that I can’t take one more step. I just have to remind myself that I am NOT strong enough to do this- to do anything- on my own. But He is; He is more than strong enough to carry my burdens and to carry me. And He has a plan; He knows where I’m going to go and what I’m going to do. I’m so grateful that God, the Lord of everything, is looking out for me. And I have the courage to take those weary steps forward in my life, closer to Him and what He wants for me, knowing that He is right there next to me.
How has WAY-FM been a part of your life?
When our son was young he gave his life to the Lord. He drifted from faith, took drugs and two years ago was in a very bad car accident. He almost lost his life, however God chose to spare him. He did lose his right arm. He moved to south Florida with us to try and get a new start in life. He found a job, but made a bad choice and got fired. He started drinking and got arrested for stealing alcohol from our neighbors. He is scheduled to get out of jail soon with nowhere to live and a rough road ahead. He has come back to the Lord and wants to change his life. He is trying to get into a program for help but there’s a waiting list. Please pray for his safety and that he can get into program soon. This station is a life saver to us and has helped to get us through this dark time. Thank you WAY-FM.
I just wanted to say thank you for the show. At work, I listen to a lot of jerks on the phone, but the second I get in my car it’s like instant therapy hearing every one’s voice. I don’t know why that is, but it’s severely refreshing and it makes me happy to be stuck in bumper to bumper traffic on the way home. Sometimes I’ll get over behind a semi just to listen a bit longer
Yesterday afternoon I was driving down the road and you started talking about how Christ has “stolen our identity”. I can’t remember the whole thing that you said, but it really touched my heart at that moment. I have been really struggling with knowing where God wants me to go in my life right now, and this felt like an answer to my prayers.
On May 19th my husband died. My heart was broken but I take comfort in knowing that he is in Heaven, which gave me peace and a wonderful witness to those who asked why I looked content. I did become lonely as expected. But when I listen to WAY FM my heart sings along and I have found joy.
My favorite song is Let Them See You (in me). God bless you all for sharing Jesus.
I’ve had a hard time finding who I am and who I want to be. I’ve known God for about seven years now but I’ve had a hard time with my faith. My heart is having a hard time wanting to praise God. Through all the pushing and fighting I’ve done against Him, He has always surprised me with little things. This past Sunday a stranger came up to me and told me, “God wanted me to tell you that His arms are open and He wants you to come into his presence.” A lot has happened to me this year. My mom is sick, I’ve been diagnosed with diabetes, my great grandfather passed away, and my parents are temporary separated. I know God has something big in store for me in life but I need extra prayers to get me started. Thanks for playing wonderful music and telling amazing stories. The world needs more encouragement and hope and y’all really help with that! Thank you!!
My name is Kaitlyn and I’m 19 years old. When I was little I use to always go to church with my family. Then as I grew up, I started missing services and then I just stopped going. When I was in high school I met a friend that was all for Jesus. She invited me to come to church with her one day. She told me that, even though I had not been to church in 6 years, I needed to get back up and God would forgive me. As my friend and I were on the way to church she turned the radio on and WAY-FM was on.
She started singing to the songs that came on. Chills came over me and I started to sing with her even though I didn’t know the songs. Ever since that day I’ve became closer to God. WAY-FM is the only radio station that I listen to now. This radio station showed me that there is a man that will forgive you no matter what. It all started with one song on the radio on the way to church. I just want to thank ya’ll for being there for me every time that I need to hear something.
Last Wednesday 3 Royal Canadian Mounted Police officers were slain in a senseless gun rampage in Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada.
The funeral service for the 3 slain officers was held today in the city’s largest facility. Over 6,000 police officers from Canada, the United States, and Europe gathered to salute their sacrifice and comfort their families.
At the request of one of the officers widows, Matt Redmond’s 10,000 Reasons was sung during the service. The feeling of faith and support that this song inspired in the facility was awesome in moving people past the feeling of loss to a feeling of comfort.
My wife and I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and spend much of the winter in Bonita Springs, Fl., where we first discovered the beauty of WAY-FM every day. When we heard Redmond’s song heard in such a powerful environment of emotion and loss today, it brought a full circle of the meaning of this beautiful Ode to Christian Faith. It was the first time we’ve heard the music north of our peaceful, shared border.
We use the app daily and appreciate the feeling of renewed faith that WAY-FM inspires every day and renewal it’s programming provides.
