Here are a few of the stories we have received:
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.
I've been going through some really difficult situations lately where I've felt far from God. Its really amazing though, that every time I have felt this way and I turn to your station, I am always reminded by a song your playing or someone speaking, that His Grace and Mercy is still available and that there is nothing that can separate me from the love of God!!! Thank you Q99.7!!!
The other day, I was driving to a Bible study and just thinking about my personal problems and financial status, and I was in tears from the stress that I was feeling. As I?m listening to the Q 99.7, I hear the words from the Bible 'don?t worry about tomorrow for tomorrow will worry about it self', being read. And I was overjoyed that God does take care of His children and that He will provide! Thank you for reading that Scripture!
At college I don't usually get radio reception in my room, and when I'm at the library and need a break from studying, I go to the Q 99.7 live stream online for some encouragement and refreshment of Truth. Thanks for providing a source of hope and power.
I just want to say thank you for letting God show me away from my dark path. I was so hurt and blamed God for my dad leaving my life and not forgiving him....I got into the wrong things and then I heard your Hope for today quotes from the Bible and it got to me. God doesn't want me in pain. He didnt do this...only my dad did this. Now I'm doing well...going to college and doing what im supposed to do. I do miss my Dad and hope to see him.
Prior to last April I was lost and feeling as if my life did not have purpose. Since being shown what Jesus did for us through his life and his death I am now learning how to live life more full. I used to listen to other radio stations but now find that I do not change the radio station from Q 99.7. Daily you lift me up through prayer. I find myself not knowing how to pray sometimes, The Q 99.7 gives me the direction I need to pray multiple times a day. THANK YOU!!
My family has been singing in the chorus at blessed sacrament church in springfield for 40 years and I was always in and out of church. I have been going through my battles and turning my attention back to God has been the best thing I have done. I have the Q99.7 programmed in my car and my phone. I cry almost everyday night just so my kids won't see how broken I am. I know that the lord will give all his children battles but I also have learned that if we all stay in faith he will lead us to our destiny. II want to just say thank you to the Q 99.7 for always knowing what to say. May the lord keep blessing this station!
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 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!
Getting back to the early morning routines school brings, as soon as the kids are on the bus, I can breathe, sit down with a cup of coffee, then turn on The Q 99.7 while I start on the housework. The music uplifts my mood, relaxes me and puts my heart back where it needs to be so that I can keep being a mom.
How has The Q 99.7 helped you? Take a moment to share your story. It could very well encourage someone else too!
