Here are a few of the stories we have received:
This morning I went to Chick-A-Fila in Chicopee for breakfast. When I got to the drive thru the worker told me someone paid for my meal and gave me the info of the drive thru difference. Who ever this person was, Thank You for your gracious gift. May the Lord continue to bless you richly.
When I was a child God was a big part of our everyday lives. As I got older it was more difficult to find God as the world started putting him away. As we tried to raise our family in believing in God the world was telling them different. We have had many struggles but everyday believing in God has carried us. Two years ago after 40 years of working and supporting our family my husbands job changed and we went from bring home pay being $648.00 a week to $336.00 a week, at a time in our lives when we thought would be our time getting ready to retire. We were getting ready to lose our home and trying to figure out how to survive. Our faith in God never weakened because these years have shown us that God is alive in the world and he is not leaving. We never stopped supporting The Q 99.7 these pass two years and will continue as long as we can. Because even though the world is broken, God knows what he's doing. With tears in my eyes and a happy heart today we will bring our mortgage to date and continue with our struggles in life because we know God is with us. Never give up because when we are broken God is with us. Every time I hear the song Broken Hallelujah by the Afters I cry a happy cry and my heart jumps for joy because I know he is with me. Let music make your heart dance and always praise God.
I recently got a really bad grade on a test for school. I was feeling really upset and was wondering how could I ever show my parents. So I just started praying, and asking God what to do. And then I turned on The Q 99.7, and the song that was playing was "I am Not Alone" by Kari Jobe, and in that moment, I felt such peace spread over me, and suddenly, I wasn't afraid anymore!! I talked to my parents and my teacher, and then re-took the test, and by the grace of God, I got a really, really good grade!! Thank you so much. I don't believe that any of my success could have happened without your station and God!!
I've been through a lot the last 7 months, at times feeling like I didn't know how I was going to make it, but I was always strong, God has seen me through all of my personal problems, listening to 99.7 has given me inspiration and has served as a reminder that God is always there and You should never give up, God will always be by your side.
As a result of circumstances that are beyond my control, (i.e. noisy neighbors) I have had to use headphones late at night. Your station has the most inspirational and upbeat Christian music, I have ever heard. Your station is a steady comfort to me on those nights that I find it hard to sleep, as well finding that it strengthens my faith.
The Q 99.7 helps me every day, just knowing that my 11 year old son has a positive outlet with encouraging music! His alternatives are not so pleasant and it reinforces our weekly worship at church, I'm very thankful for the positive outlet he has through this radio station!
The songs are very inspirational and welcome listening to you every day! I love it when you pray on the radio. It's like everything stops around me so I can pray with you! My son loves listening to your station and I don't have to worry about the lyrics or anything inappropriate. Keep up the awesome work!!!
I want to thank you for all that you guys do. I wish I could pledge, but my spouse does not allow me to do much of anything with the money. I will be praying for The Q 99.7 though, between you and my wonderful church family I feel so blessed. I sing out loud while listening in the car.
I was recently struggling with some personal issues and I was afraid that God was going to leave me. But then I got into the car and your station was playing Manafest's 'Never Let You Go' and I felt like in that moment, God was speaking to me through the song and telling me not to give in and that He will never leave me and never forsake me. It was a great encouragement!
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.
