Here are a few of the stories we have received:
Q99.7 has being a blessing and comfort during one if my saddest moments of my life. I just loss my dad last month and during this process I feel that I was about to fall but the song 'Bless The Lord oh my soul' reminds me that no matter how difficult and dark life could be, my soul must praise his name. This song lifted up my soul and when I heard it that day,I started to sing it and between tears I felt God consoling me. Thank you so much, Q99.7!
The Q 99.7 helps me EVERY day. Like so many others, my life is very busy and I spend a lot of time in my car. Listening to the Q 99.7 keeps me focused on the Lord and how blessed I am. Before I was aware of this radio station my mind would be scattered in a million different directions and I would be exhausted when I got home. Now, I usually pull in to my driveway singing and praising the Lord! I consider this station one of the most wonderful blessings in my life.
I have inherited a harem of teens as part of a blended family- none of them knew Christ before now. They were all struggling in school & used to listen to nothing but gangster rap. Now they listen to your station & are hearing uplifting, positive messages. I am also proud to say that they are all also now pulling all A's in school. One is now in professional school at the top of the class & another just got student of the month at school. I am so happy to be supporting His cause & yours.
After divorce, going through shelter, court, moving from the west to east coast with my autistic non-verbal child. We moved here, a completely unknown place. Starting everything from zero. It was then that I "accidentally" find your station - it brought me to tears and I felt the worries I was carrying on my shoulder just wash away. This is the only station Im listening from now on! Thank you!
I thought that you should know that your station has touched my heart and brought me back to God. One day I was driving on the Mass Pike on the way to a doctor's visit. I have a long commute, from Westborough to Enfield. I was channel surfing and wondering why God has put such hardships in my life. Finances are difficult, I'm losing my condo, and many more things had driven me down. I had stopped going to church, even though I was a regular choir member. And as I was asking this question, I found your station. And you were playing 'Blessings' by Laura Story. Fortunately, I was coming upon a rest stop, because that song answered the question I had just asked. I pulled in and listened to the whole song with tears streaming down my face. And I felt something change in me. That night I posted a video of that song on my facebook page. And I started going to church again. A few weeks later it happened again. I had started listening to your station and 'East to West' by Casting Crowns came on. I had to slow down quite a bit because I was so moved. When I got home I stayed in the car until it was over. Again, there were tears. Thank you for all that you do. I'm praying for you, and praying that at least one other person who is where I was can find you and be brought home. You've drawn in at least one prodigal so far.
They present me with so many awesome opportunities to listen and spread God's word. The concerts, the new seminar to help students start Bible groups on campuses. It was OBB's concert that brought me and a new friend closer together!
I was so grateful for the songs that were played the second full week in September. I was struggling on my job and there was encouragement with scripture throughout the day. Then I had even greater promises given to me in song and scripture the day my job changed~ thanks so much for your ministry outreach to keep my focus heavenward!
Music, especially faith based music, can be situational. Songs and artist you may have not cared for before now become your favorite because their song now fits your situation. Battling breast cancer, I have found this to be true while listening to The Q 99.7. Sometimes, late at night when I can't sleep, I'll find the song from The Q 99.7 that helps me and I'll search it out on YouTube and fall asleep listening to it over and over. God really speaks to the heart with music.
Today started out as a stressful day! I went to pull into the Dunkin Donuts on Westfield St. I ordered and when I got to the window the cashier said I was all set, Handed me my order and a note and said have a great day. I could not believe this lady paid for my order. This has restored my faith in God and humanity. Plus I have a new radio station to listen to now!! I want to thank this kind person for her good deed. What a great world it would be if everyone was this kind.. God Bless
I am a grandparent raising my grandchild with A.D.H.D. by myself for 11 years without any family support. It is extremely difficult and trying at times to do alone. Without my faith and belief I wouldn't be able to continue. God has blessed me with to be here for him. It is so uplifting to have Q 99.7 to tune into when I need extra encouragement and support.
