Hello WAY-FM. I recently went through a trial that I know only God could have brought me through; but I am fully persuaded that He used your station to help bring me to a higher place in him. I just turned 20 and in my 20 years of living I lost my dad, closest grandad, the young man I thought I was going to marry, and my godmom. Before my godmom passed away I remember driving to hospice for the first time alone. I was afraid because I didn’t know if I could handle being in the room with her alone with no one to cry to if I needed. I drove in silence trying my best to stay strong… If not for anyone else, for myself. I prayed, “God, don’t let me lose someone else I love” but felt like God was not answering back.

I parked and sat in the silent car… Once more I began to pray and this time I said, “God, not my will but your will be done. Are you going to take her or are you going to raise her out of this situation?” I waited… no answer… I cried… still no answer…. I turned on the radio… and there was my answer.  The song that played as soon as I turned the radio on was Natalie Grant, Held. I cried for at that moment I knew she wasn’t going to make it… But, through that song I got an indescribable assurance that everything would be ok.

I’d been saying to friends and family that I didn’t know if I’d be able to make it if she died; but, from that point of hearing that song all the way up until now God has kept me and has proven himself to be a comforter, healer, and mender of my broken heart. Thank you, WAY-FM; for truly in the time I needed it the most God used your ministry to let me know that this peace I feel inside when my world may be falling apart, yes even THIS is what it means to be held…
