I've just walked through the hardest point in my life, what I want to share is no matter the circumstance we are in or how long we feel the pain of it, financial, addiction, loss of a loved one, adultery, sickness, all of life's toughest moments that leave us stunned & in pain. We need to STOP concentrating on our wounds so much & concentrate more on GOD & how He is healing us through those wounds. Expect the long journey & know God will make beautiful out of what looks like ashes. Praise GOD
Thank STAR 93.3 for getting me through a very difficult time at work. At first I was being inspired and reminded to honor God in my thoughts and words and to keep my mouth shut so I did not lash back at my boss when he was treating me so poorly. Then the music and Bible verses in my pocket helped me through a very nasty resignation experience and now comforts me in the peace of having left a job I love but cannot continue doing there. So let's go, God and STAR 93.3! We have a new job to find!
Today I am a graduate! Because of God's amazing grace, a strong and healing community, and good orderly direction, I have earned a Bachelors of Science degree from U.C. and am now a Substance Abuse Counselor. Despite early misdiagnosis of mental retardation, later cancer episodes, loss of a loving wife, home foreclosure, job loss, and more, God raised me through it all. And, now I am ready to serve my savior Jesus in all ways needed. Thank you God, Jesus, and my new beautiful new wife "Nan.
Listening to STAR 93.3 has kept me strong! I was having really bad panic attacks. I would pray asking God to take it away and then 2 years ago I started listening to STAR 93.3. The music and the stories of others really helped me. I don't have panic attacks all the time now and God has been so good to me. I am very thankful for STAR 93.3. Thank you all for everything you do.
I am a grateful believer in Jesus Christ who struggled with sexual abuse, depression, suicide and the disease of addiction. I attempted suicide on April 23, 2013 and was in coma for 13 days and God brought me back from death. Today, I am the founder of Celebrating Restoration. I recall during my struggle with addiction listening to STAR 93.3 and God never failed to minister through songs such as "Redeemed" by Big Daddy Weave... God still moves today as He did yesterday...
I am a new man because of God and your ministry in music. I was lost and alone. Yes I may have a girlfriend, now fiance, but I was alone. I was in the hospital watching my mom die. My family turned their back on me. I felt like I was at rock bottom. I was going to take my life. I heard "Hello My Name Is" by Chris Tomlin and I cried like never before. I want back to church, was re-baptized and now I am getting married next year. Thank you for saving my life.
My friend and my other friend have been fighting but today they forgave each other. Also can you guys please play Hello my Name is -Grace
I'm 11 years old and my story is about my parents who gave birth to me and I just love her. She inspires me and then my daddy came in our life and made our life complete.
I typically listen to books during my commute to and from work. One day on my way in, I was having a rough morning, my typical route to work was backed up due to an accident. My book wasn't working, so I turned the radio on, and I was flipping through the stations trying to find music. Hawk Nelson was playing, Drops in the Ocean. This spoke to me, GOD spoke to me through this song. I found my way back to church and God because of Star! Thank You!
When my son died from cancer I became very angry with God and stopped trusting Him. This went on for 13 years. Last year my dad became ill and I also was injured. For the first time since my son's death I began to seek God again. Life was too much for me to handle alone. My son's death left me feeling abandoned by God but I am now learning to trust Him all over again and it is amazing how forgiving and patient He is with me. I also get much encouragement from all that I hear on STAR 93.3.
Since I started listening to STAR 93.3 and your music I started to love myself more and believing in God more. Thank you!
Thought you might get a kick out of this; my 11 year old daughter and I listen to your radio show every morning before school, and one day last week she asked me why Alica Penn is so dangerous. When I asked what she meant, she said "every day they say 'keeping you and your family safe from Alica Penn'" . Now I hear it that way every time and laugh, and I bet you will too!
