I have been listening to WAY-FM since moving to the Florida panhandle in 2008. I am currently enduring a marital separation from my wife of 21 years. WAY-FM blesses me as I listen to stories and music that proves God is still in love with me and my wife and longs to heal us from the hurt of our past. The song that God sang to me while listening to WAY-FM was MercyMe’s “Hurt and the Healer”. Thank you for your ministry to the community and to the world. God is using WAY-FM to love on His people.
My Uncle Andy passed away on April 6th from diabetes. His death was sudden and unexpected. It was hard seeing my grandparents sob over their youngest child’s casket. The week following Uncle Andy’s death, there were two songs that helped keep me going. The first was, “Lord I Need You.” Every time I heard this song I would pray the words. The second was “I Will Praise You in This Storm“. I sing in the choir at my church and thought about not standing in the choir the Sunday after Uncle Andy’s death. It was then that I knew I had to praise God, no matter what.
I have been listening to this station since I was 8 Years-Old. Without this station, my heart would would continue to stumble. It is the works of your station–The power of God’s love–That has kept bringing my heart away from this world, and onto the hands of our Savior.
By the influence of WAY-FM, my clouded eyes begin to see through the darkness, filled with love by hearing HIS voice calling out to me. With WAY-FM, and with GOD, I was able to overcome emotional struggles with my pass regressions: physical and mental abuse, learning how to grow up at a young age. I kept everything hidden inside my heart; I would never allow someone to see me struggle on the outside. But inside, I was screaming. Coming to God at 17-years old, I was born again. But I began to fall, over and over again, never able to get back that love I wanted.
While I was in a swirling state of depression, screaming in tears at God,asking the reasons why,holding on to my last shred of sanity and shaking with extreme agony, you played “Lead Me“ by Sanctus Real, and “You are More“ by Tenth Avenue.
I felt the impact of these songs, and I could not help but feel HIM. I was begging for forgiveness, filled with that righteous fire of HIS presence.
Thank you, WAY-FM with all my heart. I know my God has not forgotten me. He knows my heart.
I am 24 years old and 7 weeks ago I was rushed to the emergency room because my entire right foot was turning white; it was getting hardly any blood or oxygen to it. Within an hour I was in surgery and have had 3 surgeries since then. I have severe artery damage due to many blood clots and other ailments. The doctors are saying there is no way to repair my leg and within a year I will have to have it amputated below the knee. My family and I have just been turned upside down because of this. The funny thing is they are taking it a lot harder than me.
I am really the only Christian in my family and they are starting to see (accept) just how strong and powerful my faith is and that this ordeal has only strengthened it. When all of this started happening, I just kept saying over and over, “It is in God’s hands. Whatever He hands me will only make me stronger.” Everything about WAY-FM has truly touched my heart and is a big part of my life. With this station I can worship God everywhere and know that He is still with me. I don’t know what I would do without ya’ll.
The workplace can be a place where we can feel accomplishment, success, and part of a team. But it can also promote stress, anxiety, or even low self esteem when deadlines are not met, friction among co-workers exists, or budget constraints demand long hours. Add to the mix, a maze of cubicles, 50 people talking at the same time, and constant movement and you have what I affectionately call “the beehive”! Bringing peace and balance in my “beehive” was a challenge until I decided to listen to WAY-FM. All day, every day, lip synching the words to each song I know, rockin’ to the beat in my desk chair and laughing when Wally says something ridiculous to make me laugh. I’m smiling because my peace is restored and is a constant reminder that God is right there in “the beehive” with me.
My co-workers started one by one to tap me on the shoulder to ask me what I’m listening to because they see me smiling and dancing in my chair. I tell them, WAY-FM, contemporary Christian music and at that moment, share my ear bud so they can listen in. I tell them it keeps me sane and happy every day at work.
Thank you WAY-FM for making my work place a better part of my day and the opportunity to share God’s message to my co-workers.
