In the final week of January, we invited you to share your stories, and the response has been truly inspiring. It’s been a delightful experience delving into each narrative and witnessing the recurring theme of divine intervention through the perfect song at precisely the right moment. These stories serve as poignant reminders that God is consistently present, assuring us of His everlasting companionship.
For those seeking inspiration today, we encourage you to explore three particularly impactful stories that were submitted. While we have numerous listener stories to share, we’ve provided a brief glimpse into the stories we’ve received.
Let me tell you about my Jesus! In 2017 I fell into a river of deceit and was in active addiction. After being in and out of jail, I was finally made to stay there long term. I served 92 days. While I was incarcerated, I found Jesus on a deeper level than ever before. He saved my life. I believe I needed that time in a controlled environment to remember who I am and what I am here for. Since October 2018 I have been sober. Over 5 years. In those 5 years I accomplished so much in my life with Jesus at the wheel. I graduated college in 2022 and am now a substance use counselor and am able to help people through my own experience. I bought my own house last year and have rekindled my relationship with my children. God takes all the glory. Without Him I don’t believe I would have made it this far. Thank you, Jesus, for a life of restoration and gratitude. Through Him ALL things are possible
Your songs and messages have gotten me through a very difficult time. I was diagnosed in November with esophageal cancer and have been fighting the good fight. I received my treatment regimen at Mayo in Rocheser. With technology I was able to take you all with me. I had a piece of home with me as I did radiation and chemo together.
I have met others now who have gone down this journey and one gentleman just diagnosed and starting his journey this week at Mayo. I am certain God has placed him in my life to encourage each other and be there to laugh, cry and yell together.
We have an amazing God full of love and nothing he does is ever coincidence.
Thank you for all you do, your positive encouragement helps more than you know.
I always wanted to be a Caregiver working in the medical field, in which i have been doing for, 40 years. But God knew I needed to take care of my husband also. I have been married to Gregg for 22 years. Of that time, 17 years has been caring for him do to many health challenges. However, since the last 3 years of which he was found unresponsive and has kidney failure and congestive heart failure, it has become mire challenging for me. With the kidney failure, we are doing his dialysis at home everyday. He can no longer work, so everything is all on me. Seeing his health challenges and daily routines, has become overwhelming. I was so lost with the daily routines along with housework, paying bills, groceries, house repairs and working full time caring for my Cancer patients, I feel like I am all alone. Besides my parents helping, there is no one else. I do it all. I Pray all the time and sometimes multiple times throughout the day. Then as i drive to work and coming home, WCIC is on all the time. Then the song.. Same God by Elevation worship came on and I cried out as I sang.. My God My God I need You now. I cried out to God for Strength as I didn’t know what to do and being a Caregiver fulltime 24-7 is Hard. God gives me the Strength everyday as I continue to care for my husband but God also helps me Care for my patients and I help them by telling them they are not Alone, they have God who Loves and Cares for them.
I also am so Grateful for WCIC as whatever I am going through each day, and the feelings of being Overwhelmed, i can always count on my Prayers to God who hears me and WCIC for the encouragement.
I Pray that whoever hears my story that whatever you may be going through, you are not alone. Jesus is with you and will be beside you and sometimes holding you when it may seem overwhelming.
Attached is a good picture of me and Gregg before his health challenges.
Thank you WCIC
