How has The Q 99.7 helped you? Take a moment to share your story. It could very well encourage someone else too!
Here are a few of the stories we have received:
Like far too many others, I suffer from depression. The other night, I was overcome by it (again), and spent hours crying asking myself why I bother doing anything since it doesn't really matter anyway. I hate myself for needing medication to feel normal. I hate myself for being unable to lean on Jesus more. Why can't prayer and time in his Word be enough? Why isn't he healing me? As I was driving home, sobbing, wishing I wouldn't wake up in the morning, 'Who You Are' by Unspoken began playing on The Q. As I got home, certain lyrics were replaying in my mind -- 'Come back from wherever you've been to the foot of the cross, to the feet of Jesus.' 'Every day you put your feet on the floor, you gotta walk through the door. It's never going to be easy, but it's all worth fighting for.' I felt like Jesus was right next to me with an arm around my shoulder saying, 'I still love you, no matter how ugly you think you are inside. I think you're beautiful and perfect. And no matter what your day brings, you have to keep fighting, and I'll be right here helping you to put one foot in front of the other.' Thank you for choosing to play music that encourages people to keep putting their feet on the floor.
Being a high school student, I am constantly surrounded by negative music, but with my 30 minute drive to school, I get to start my day with great uplifting music instead of the secular music on the other stations. The Q 99.7 is also a great opportunity to share my faith because all I listen to in the car is the Q 99.7...so whenever I give rides to my friends, I get to introduce them to great Godly music with a message!
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 just want to thank The Q for being here for the last 10 years. You have helped me, and my family, with everything that's happened over these years.
Through different ongoing problems; a failed marriage, a lost apartment, an autism diagnosis, a cancer diagnosis... and death.
Thank you so much.
We love you!
This radio station is truly amazing and a work of God. Lives have been changed. I have been changed. The music reaches out to people. We can relate to the music and learn from it.
It has been so helpful to listen online and become more acquainted with Christian music. For years I was not a fan of Christian music at all, but while I've been obsessed with suicidal thoughts, the uplifting, loving message about God has been so helpful. I've been listening to different Christian music artists' albums in my car over and over again just to help, I guess as Josh Wilson says, 'push back the darkness.'
Last October when we were without power for almost a week and quite cold also, my husband and I would listen to the Q 99.7 on a battery operated radio. It was very uplifting at a time when we really needed it. Thank-you so much!
I stopped at McDonalds for lunch on Allen Street and the woman in front of me paid for my lunch at the drive up. I was pleasantly surprised and when I got to the window to pay the clerk she gave me a note about Q99.7 "the drive through difference". I look forward to doing this for someone as well. I know have found a new station that I never heard of before. Thank you for a very nice experience and making my day.
My wife just left with our kids to go to her parents and plans on filing for divorce on Monday. All I can think is 'my world is falling apart'. But I just heard Just Be Held by Casting Crowns and the line that says 'your world's not falling apart it's falling into place' really spoke to me. I don't see how any good can come from all of this right now, but I just need to stop holding on and just be held!
We entered the Mcdonald's Drive thru hungry and sad. My daughter had an off day at the lacrosse tournament. The cold had influenced her ability to grip and run. When we approached the drive up window we were informed that the car in front of us had
paid for the meal, no strings attached. Thank you Q!! Your timing was perfect. You turned a down moment into an encouraging one!
