I am a survivor of physical, mental and sexual abuse at the hand of my father. As a result, I am bipolar and have fibromyalgia. I am in pain every day. I see a Christian counselor and am on a lot of medication. But the reason I find joy in every day is my relationship with Christ. His love reached down to that neglected, hurt little girl and filled her with hope. I had a brother that showed me the unconditional love my parents were incapable of showing me. God never let me go! Praise Him
My wife and I were preparing to retire last evening. I turned the lights out, and my wife started to pray. I was going to pray and then said I'll wait for her to finish, as though God would not hear me at the same time. I chuckled, and said that's silly. I then had a thought that I had not considered before. There are billion's of people praying to Him at the same time, and HE hears each and every one of them, and answers them all. Do we not honor, and serve an awesome God!
I have dealt with a lot of grief and when I listen to "Thy Will" by Hillary Scott it brings me peace that I can have closure to keep my faith firs.t I'm a fighter & God has a plan for me!
I've been listening & enjoying STAR 93.3 nearly exclusively over a year now (enjoy some Country Music). Prior, I listened to KLOVE and had no intention of switching. My hands were full when going out to watch my grandson play & I dropped my radio. It looked ok & I snapped the corner of the back into place, only to find out I couldn't tune in to anything beside STAR 93.3. Hence, His funny way, & now I'm a STAR listener and big fan of the music, artists and especially Brant Hansen & Sherry, and others!
In 2007 my dad became deathly ill. He had MRSA and had gone septic. He had a fever of 107 for 3 weeks. Dr's told us to look at funeral arrangements because he wouldn't make it. I remember driving to the hospital one day, it was raining outside and I heard the lyrics in the radio "I will praise you in three storm" I looked at the physical storm I was in but also the storm with my dad, I knew God was with me, he was with us. 4 additional weeks in a coma my dad pulled through. God is good!
My name is Jena, and I'm from a small town in Indiana. I'm 23, I have an amazingly sweet 1yr old son and have recently been separated from my husband. I've been left with over $10,000 in medical bills for both my son and I, a $20,000 vehicle, and no place to stay. God has blessed me with a good steady job, but it's a day to day struggle to pay for housing, food, and bills on my own. Your station makes an impact on my heart daily when there seems no hope. Thank you for constant encouragement!
The song "Eye of the Storm" really got to me. And I've been playing it over and over again. The past couple of months have been hard for me. My Grandma passed away October 2nd. And my Grandpa passed away December 9th. My Mom has been diagnosed with Lupus. Watching her fight hard to provide for the family no matter how sick she is. She's not giving up neither am I. This song is about being in the eye of the storm. And the storm is pulling you away. It's pushing you to walk in the darkest valleys.
Years ago I fell in laughter with the work of Brant when he was Aired on other broadcast in my hometown of Knoxville, TN. When he (sadly) left, I was so grieved! If he was gone, then there was no reason to tune in... back to CDs. With recent, discouraging move to Cincy, I was house hunting through tears. This friendless, empty-nester pulled over on side of road and leaked tears to the Lord. I randomly turned on radio. BRANT'S voice! The Lord sent me an old friend!! I'm still smiling! God knew! THX!
As a frequent listener when I'm home in Cincinnati, I knew the very day Star would start playing Christmas music (I love Christmas time). This semester, I've lived and studied in Florence, Italy and was able to stream Star 93.3 online to spread Christmas cheer and the story of Jesus over seas. Not only has it been a taste of home, but a great reminder that no matter where I am in the world, God will never leave my side.
I asked my boss one day if I could change the station to 93.3 at my desk and she said it was there for me. One night I was closing and reminded a visitor to turn off the stereo in the back room. He said it was the stereo at my desk playing throughout the building and that he liked my station. Several people have commented that they like it. I've never heard a visitor comment about any other station. I've met a lot of Christians at my new job I wouldn't have met otherwise thanks to Star 93.3!
I heard pastor Kathy Elliott, my preacher, started listening to this station and I hope she likes it like I do. This station is everything to me and it helped me through my tough times and my sad times in my life and I wouldn't know what to do without this station. Keep up with the good music. I love you Star 93.3 and you are the best.
My dad, grandma and I lived together. My mom had to move out because she was not nice to me. I was 5 then and now I am 10. Last year on December 9th my grandma passed away. My grandma was pretty much my mom. She took me everywhere and loved me. Last Saturday we moved to a new house and without God we'd be on the streets. God has helped me through it all. That's my story.
