Praise goes out to my loving and caring Heavenly DAD!

Our wondrous God is an awesome DAD to me; I say the word DAD because that is such an intimate word for Father. This Heavenly Dad of mine has taken good care of me throughout my life! Though my own sins hinder this view sometimes, I will always know that his love is abundant! I've been blessed with a wonderful and loving family, including a father, mother, sister, grandparents, cousins, etc...  When I see my family I see God. I am so blessed to have them.

Though I know that others do not have this great relationship with their family and this may hinder their own relationship with God. I pray that everyone that hurts from an unloving family will Go to God and seek his DADDY LOVE and rest there in the peace of knowing that your heavenly DAD is there for you... loving you, caring for you, protecting you, and waiting for you in heaven.

God bless everyone!

I just want to praise God for being the Rock I can stand on when my whole world seems to be crumbling around me. I love being a Jesus freak.  There is no other 'freak' I'd rather be.

Praise the Lord.  I went back to school to get a degree at the age of 40; graduating in 2006.  It seemed like forever before I found any full time, permanent work and I was so despairing over it.  Every application, resume that went out and came back with a turn down was so hard to take and by the time late 2008 arrived I’d almost given up.  I received a notice from a ministry in Ohio (Rod Parsley’s church); they were having several minister’s visit and speak over a weekend (Camp-Meeting) and were going to pray over requests at the altar one evening; you could get prayer for just about anything, but it had to be specific.  Well I put down a job and though giving wasn’t required, I wanted to give something.  I had $15 in my checking account and several days to go before any other would be coming in, but I elected to split it.  I had a job offer here within’ three weeks!  Maybe this will encourage people at this time of our country.  Praise Jesus forever and ever.

God had saved my life.  I have asked God to come into my life so many times but I didn't know what that meant until I met my X-husband.  Yes, X-husband but not for long.  He gave me a bible in 2000 and told me he wanted a Christian life and marriage.  He was brought up in church and had a wonderful Christian mom.  We were married in 2002 and had our daughter in 2003.  The saying that goes, "get away from God and so will your marriage get away from you".  We slowing stopped attending church and our marriage went downhill. I finally moved out and divorced him this year.  God touched my heart, my life and his too.  It was all planned and God is always in control.  The "D" was final in March 2010 but God put us back together in April 2010 and we now have the best relationship we have EVER had in the 15 years we have known each other.  I was baptized Aug. 10 (which was the original Wedding Ann. Date).  We both re-committed ourselves to the lord and to each other.  God has worked in my life, our lives and I'm blessed to have a wonderful man of who leads us.  We have a wonderful Church, wonderful friends and life.  We are truly blessed.  I can't wait to re-marry this man again!

Just yesterday I read a passage about how healing comes sometimes after we praise. I was needing God to help me and I read thisSmile It is so ironic, and perhaps just God working that has led to the day after I read that passage being praise day on k-Love. I have anxiety & sometimes I worry way too much and become sad. I am an extremely busy teenager & I have a lot of pressure to get into college and do well in everything I do. God always pulls me through,I'm never strong enough, but He is, & He will ALWAYS "light,light,light up the sky" -The Afters. PRAISE GOD FROM WHOM ALL BLESSNGS FLOW!!!

In the years before 2004 I was an anxious, depressed worrier.  I was very overweight and constantly worried that I was having a heart attack or some other life threatening physical occurrence.  That all changed in August of 2004 when my yearly mammogram came back with a suspicious spot on it.  After more testing and a biopsy I was diagnosed with breast cancer.  I had a lumpectomy at the end of August of that year and spent the next several months going through chemotherapy and radiation.  God brought me through all of that and it is now 5 years cancer free.  Praise God!  He changed me from that basket case of before to someone who feels so blessed by Him.  I could not have made it through all of that without him.  I praise HIM because he is God, the ONE TRUE GOD.  Thank you, God

I want to praise God just for how awesome he is. He has brought me and my two children through so much over the past 15 years that I couldn't imagine life without him. Even though we are currently going through a storm in life, he has given us a peace and understanding that he will be with us and that we will make it through the storm. He continues to bring us closer to him and to each other. I also praise him for the two beautiful children that he has blessed me with.

My praise God comment:
I failed all of my heart test and the doctor said I would need a bi-pass surgery. He want to do a heart cath. first. They woke me up and said that the doctor had some news for me.

He said over and over "I don't understand it" but your heart is completely healthy. I just cried and said "Praise God".

Again at my follow up surgery he repeated "I don't understand it" I put my hand on his shoulder and said "It is God at work"  Praise the Lord!

And I praise him for always being in control!Smile

I had lost 4 babies when I became pregnent with my 5 child I had some test done in Denver and they told me I need to have an abortion because my little baby would have severe downs syndrome, I told them if GOD chooses to give me a special needs child then he will equip me to take care of it. I went on to have a difficult pregnacy but I delivered a healty 6lb 1 oz little girl who was perfect no sign of downs syndrome or any otehr defect, I had my church pray for my little girl and I prayed daily for this child to be healthy and we serve a great big GOD and he will give us the desires of our hearts. My desire was to have one healthy child and he gave us a beautiful vibrant little girl who will be 3 next month. Dont tell me GOD cant answer your prayers he answered mine beyond my imagination.

For years I have suffered with depression from a thyroid condition I was diagnosed with at age 19. I also have lots of scars from a pretty traumatic past.  I was a prodical child that came home from 13 years of rebellimg against my family and friends.  I made some terrible choices during my journey in the desert and I unfortunately chose to abort 2 of my own children which will always stay with me. However, I have been forgiven by my Father in heaven. I also experienced several painful breakups after my divorce from my first husband which also sent me on a downward spiral. I was also a single mom for 5 years and felt deeply alone at times. After many years I have begun to see restoration in my own life and the lives of those I love. I am eternally grateful now that I have a loving husband that God blessed me with, 2 wonderful sons and our daughter that we adopted from China in 2004.  I am also working on a new ministry and I also work with the pro-life movement in my area.  I still struggle with my ups and downs but I am eternally grateful to God who rescued me from the pit I was in and also the many times I have pleaded for Him to help me when I felt as if I couldn't go on.  He's always been near eventhough I haven't always felt His presence on every occasion. I know now that I just have to re-focus my attention to Him and know He never leaves me or forsakes me. Praise God for His Indescribable Gift - Jesus Christ!  I couldn't make it without him! His mercies are new everyday for me! It's not easy, but I couldn't be where I am today without Him.  I love you, Jesus!

June 2007 my 3rd child was born. A beautiful baby girl. No complications, nothing until she was 3 mo old i realized that her eyes werent focusing like they should be.  I took her to the pediatrician who told me she was fine. I didnt belive her, i took her to a opthamologist who told me that she was BLIND and that they should have noticed something by her hearing test at birth.  Questions flooded my mind wondering what i was going to do. I talked to my pastor who told me to have Faith and they would pray for her.  9 days later i heard God speak to me telling me to check her, i called her name and moved.....SHE FOLLOWED ME!!! I knew God had touched her, our 6 week check up confirmed it, she wasnt blind but needed glasses for her astigmatisms, we made an appointment for when she was 7mo to get glasses.  I lost my job 3 days before my appt. I was worried. i couldnt afford the glasses let alone teh vist...my pastor told me to have faith that God doesnt half finish things.  We went to the apt. found out that ins payed for it...and to the doctors astoundment....HER EYES ARE PERFECT!! no more astigmatisms!!  GOD IS SO POWERFUL, MAGNIFICENT, AND AMAZING!! I will forever be thankful to him!!

Not sure if this will work. It is a testament to god's healing power and the power of prayer. I learned about Chip from a friend who goes to his church in Texas.

If you can it would be worth sharing on your facebook page.

It has inspired me to learn more about and try to understand God's will and the power of prayer that I have been struggling with since the death of my father 2.5 years ago.

Praise God for the health of my husband, Joseph and myself!  Joseph was diagnosed in April 2009 with Squamus Cell Carcinoma (the same cancer his brother, Jim passed away from 10 years earlier).  Joseph's tumor was on the outside of his body.  He had 1/2 of his left middle finger amputated in May 2009.  He is now cancer free!

On Sept 29, 2009, I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer during a routine mammagram.  My liver tests were slightly elevated so I had a CAT scan during which the radiologist found a tumor in my heart.  The Left Atrium Myxoma would have resulted in a massive stroke if not discovered.  I had Open Heart Surgery on Oct 22, 2009 to remove the turmor.  On Jan. 6, 2010 I had a bi-lateral mastectomy and reconstruction on June 25th.  I am cancer free and there are no signs of the return of the heart tumor.

Throught all this chaos, Joseph and I have grown closer to each other and our amazing God.  We are blessed to be called his children.  PRAISE GOD for not only healing our bodies, but healing our marriage.  In Him and for Him!

For many years my family was having problems and my parents marriage was in jeopardy. I would pray constantly to God so He would restore the relationship between my parents and my siblings. so last night as I thought the worst has come, God came into our lives and opened everyone's changed everything around. Yesterday was the first time in my 20 years to hear my brother came up to me and said "I love you Lora." we cried for a long time and thanked God for His Love for us.  Even though this is all still so fresh and I know that we still have a bumpy ride ahead of us, We're not afraid to stand up and say that God is with us and that he will carry us through the hard times. So today when I woke up and turned your radio station on and heard that today was national day of Praise I had to share that with the everybody! I thank God for all he has done in my life! Praise be to Him. Amen

I'm praying for the boy and two girls out there who will become the husband to my daughter (age 6) and the wives to my to sons (ages 2 and 4). May all three be living in Godly homes and being shown how to love the Lord with all they have. May the world someday be blessed with three more families who chase after all that He promises for those who seek Him daily.

I just wanted to drop a few lines and praise my Almighty Father.  He is amazing and to actually see Him work is even better.  Starting Friday (Oct. 8th) prior to bible study there were some young gentlemen that were assulted by a man once they got to church. Fortunately no one was really hurt, but these young and stout boys never fought back.  They calmly went into the church and advised the pastor, who went outside to check on the already departed other male involved. In addition to this, another young male in my church had his only way of transportation stolen. The amazing part of this story is that on Sunday after church, the man that committed the assult to the first set of young boys came to the church and appologized and all the men of the church cried an prayed with this man (also crying) and showed him God's agape love in abundance.  While this was going on, the other young gentlemen that had his transportation stolen, looked up and saw what was stolen from him, confronted the young man on the motor bike who confessed that he had in fact stolen it! The young man that had his motor bike stolen from prayed with the other boy and wished to not press any charges.  It was amazing to see my Jesus provide loving responses to two prayers at the same time!

I listen you Klove all the time. I rush out of the house in the earlie morning hours just to listen to the prayer that are prayed on the stationed before I go to work.

I wouldn't be where I am right now if it weren't for His love. I see Him in my life threw people he has put in my path. Words can never come close to the love I feel for Him. Thank you for being such a prayer worrier on this radio station.

The biggest praise I have besides Christ redeeming me 30 years ago, is that 6 weeks ago He allowed me the honor of being a part of my 83 year old father's accepting Christ as his Savior.  The change in this man's heart from being self-centered to being concerned and giving towards other has been amazing to witness.

Only with God have I made it through all my life, but never so much as the past almost 2 years. April 2, 1009 my wonderful husband took me to the doctor. I had not felt well for many weeks. Long story, short: I was immediately taken to emergency with a rapid heart beat.I don't remember much of it after that point. My blood pressure dropped drastically. I remember waking up and seeing my entire family, children, their spouses, grandchildren, brother,etc.at the end of my bed in ICU.I was about to go into emergency surgery to remove fluid around my heart.I was eveidently aware enough at that moment to ask them all to say the Lord's Prayer with me.After 30 days in the hospital, I came home, unable to walk very far from being down so long. The family had a bed all set up in the livingroom for me. With the love and devotion of my husband(He never left the hospital, only if another family member was there and slept on chairs at night to be with me)of 34 years taking care of me and all the help of family and medical in home care, I slowly was recovering. My husband had always suffered from back problems, so when it started to get very painful for him during that time, we thought it was from stress and sleeping on chairs! In July I finally talked him into going to the emergency room because he was having trouble breathing. After exrays during the time he was in there, the doctor came in and gave us the devistating news. He had cancer. They admited him, ran more test and started chemo and radiation. The cancer was in his lungs and around his heart. They told us he had maybe 9-12 months.God was beside us all the time, making me well enough to drive him daily to his treatments. He was losing weight, and getting weaker, unable to eat much. On the morning of Sept.5,2009, I went to give him his meds.God had taken him from his suffering. Though I am ever thankful for him to not be suffering, I was devistated. Without God I don't know where I would be at this time. Phill and I were inseparable and devoted to each other. I still cry buckets of tears, because I miss him so much. I pray to Jesus all the time to help me find my way in this new life, to find my purpose. I know he wanted me to live back when I was so close to death so I could take care of Phill during his illness.I am not sure what the future holds for me, but I pray God leads me, as I know God does.Finanialy,I will lose my home soon that Phill and I shared since 1970. I know where ever I end up,Phill will be with me and God will help me. I pray that I will be worthy, one day, to join my beloved husband in Heaven and we will be together again. Praise God, Praise God!

I want to give praise to my Lord just because he is who he is - GOD, the Lord of heaven and earth and is worthy of all our heart to worship him!

I have been saved since 1998, and I just want to thank God for my salvation. I don't think I really ever truly appreciated life till I came to know Jesus. He has been so good to me over the years. My husband is not saved, we have been married for 27 years. My two adult sons and daughter-in-laws are not saved either. But I know my Lord is going to save them all. I just have to pray and be faithful. And I thank my Lord for my three beautiful grandbabies. And I talk to them about Jesus. And I know He watches over them, and maybe He will use my grandbabies to get their Grandpa, and Mommies and Daddies saved. I also praise my Lord for K-Love Radio, I listen all the time, the only station I listen to. It inspires me, and always plays a song with a message I need at the moment I need to hear it. I go to visit my Mother in Ky once a month, I live in Oh. And it is such a blessing on the 3 hour drive, to have my K-Love turned up, and i sing along the whole 3 hours. And many times I have got blessed, and wept, and started praising God, for what He does in my life. And I often think, what must I look like to other drivers? lol But I just can't help myself, because He is so good to me. I could go on till eternity and never finish thanking Him for all He does for me. I am a pledge member, have been for about 2 years, and I thank God for K-Love and all of you radio hosts, and everyone involved. You all have blessed me more then I could ever say. Everyday you bless me, so thank you to you all!! God bless!!

I was never supposed to breathe my very first breath of life!
My mother became pregnant with me, as it is medically considered, too soon after a miscarriage.  She was told that I too would be a miscarriage. She was also told that I was a boy and that my heart rate confirmed this, she really wanted a girl...this plunged her into a great depression.  
Then she was told I would be a still-birth...die soon after...then a vegetable on life-support...then a mentally retarded midget (something was wrong with my growth plates)...and at nine I was told that I had too many female problems and would never have children.
Today, I am 5'6'', with a beautiful little boy that is going to be my escort to my scholarship banquet this evening.  =o)
God is AMAZING and He has blessed my life in almost every way a person can be...I have 'wow'ed science since the day I came into this world!  I know that God is not done with me yet...I am His miracle and I live everyday to praise Him!!!

My X husband committed sucide and murdered my son by carbon monxide in his vechile on August 17, 06 he was 11 and my only child and I want to thank God that he did it the way he did....meaning not nothing uguly like a gun shot or something like that.  I hate this man for what he did to my son and it has been hard for me and I am praying to God everyday to show me if I need to forgive or not, but I am thankful the grace that God shows me and that I am saved and that I am going to Heaven when I die and I will be with my son forever and I am thankful that I taught my son about Jesus and that he is in his arms and safe and perfect.  Thank you Jesus for all you do for all your blessing for forgiveness of my sins and for my salvation and for what you did on the cross.

I have to praise God for my son. 2 Years & 5 months ago my son was born by emergency C-Section without a heartbeat for 32 minutes, there was a nurse there by the name of "Ellen" that just would not give up on him. Doctors said if he made it through the night it would be a miracle. He has brain damage at the front and back of his brain but as I type this today he is just like a normal toddler running around. I would like to find the nurse that did not give up on my precious son "Christian" I know it was the hand of God that healed my son and sent "Ellen" as the delivery nurse,if she runs across this comment I would love for her to get in touch with me so I can thank her. I never did see this woman because I was totally out of it. He was born at the NIX Hospital San Antonio Tx May 4th 2008 Thank you!

There are so many things to list-- my heart is overflowing with his grace! He's keeping me safe until I'm strong enough--but he's also teaching me to walk and see his love all around HIS world!! My part is remembering that I forget quickly and need ALOT everyday to stay alive; what I need is love and I'm screaming at the top of my lungs until he's satisfied my hunger; the hitch- the more I eat from his table- the hungrier I get-- he'll only feed me as much as my belly can hold but he knows that my belly is growing and stretching with every bite I take!!!!!!!!!!

5 years ago I was blessed to find a wonderful man who became my best friend. He is a true follower of Christ and I enjoyed the opportunity to worship by his side. I bought him a Bible and for someone who doesn't like to read: he became very interested and read his Bible everyday.
My best friend is no longer with me and I miss him every day. But; I am thankful that GOD brought him(BRUCE) into my life. He helped me to love my self at a time that I did not have much self worth. His faith and the memories we shared are things I will forever be grateful for.  Bruce; I thank GOD for you every day you were in my life

It'll be 2 years, oct. 23, since my grandma passed.  She was the most important thing in this world to me.  She was always there for me, and she believed in me.  If I didn't have anywhere to go, I could always go to her. I had my own personal angel. When God took her, I felt like he took everything. My entire world just dropped around me, and I lost a lot of faith.  about 6 months later, a good friend of mine took me to church with her.  I started going on a regular basis, and a few months later I was baptized. Then I heard a song on K-LOVE about how there will be a day without any pain or tears.  Now I see, that God wasn't hurting me, He was saving my grandma.  She's no longer suffering. and I couldn't be more blessed to have a Heavenly Father who can see the whole picture, and loves us deeper than we could ever imagine.

I have been going to church since I was born, but it was not until this year that I truely realized the beauty of Jesus Christ. My wife and I have had our share of challenges, but we switched churches and found that from the very first service, we were in tears from the very first praise song. Our hearts and lives were forever changed by the power to God's disciples and the pastor. The messages struck our hearts so deeply that many wounds are healing. This was a prayer of mine for many years and could never understand way God was not hearing me. I now know that he always hears our prayers, we just need to listen. We look forward to going to service every Sunday to have our hearts renewed by God's love and word.

Happy Day of Praise Day!! I'm 16 and starting about 4 years ago I was hit with heavy stuff that brought me to the lowest I have ever been. It started with a car crash that eventually took my grandfather,and during the next 2 years I lost 9 family members and friends. This year on January the 6th will be the third year since I lost my father, Donald, to complications with Alzheimer disease. The last two years of his life he lived in a nursing home and couldn't identify my brother and I. He died in my arms on January the 6th, I thought of suicide and to add to the mess the next month on Super Bowl Sunday I was told I was leaving Indiana and moving to Florida. I lost everyone then moved away from the rest. I meet great kids in Florida where my now best friends encouraged me to go to youth, I was reluctant because I hated what God had done to me. I went and had to be forced to go again. That winter, now only 2 years ago, I wrote a letter and prepared to hang myself. My best friend and just told me she loved me, so I held off just falling into tears on the phone. That summer God saved me!!! Satan came back the next year after it had been a tough first year of high school, this time I put a gun to my head and sat...once again same person same phone call...this time I was done and God pulled me from those thoughts ever since!! Sorry its long, but thats the half of it...God is just Amazing!!

This morning my mom underwent hip replacement surgery.  A major surgery, but in her case the doctor's called it a "life-threatening" surgery because she has a blood clotting disorder.  I praise God today for getting my mom through the surgery without any complications, and giving me more time with her!  She trusted the Lord and put her life His hands - there is no better place to be!

Two years ago this month I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer.  After chemo, radiation and a lumpectomy I am cancer.  However, I know that those procedures were very helpful in my being healed but I know where my healing came from; JESUS CHRIST MY LORD AND SAVIOR.  He gets all the glory for bringing me thru.  I went for all my exams recently and the Dr. said " I can't find a thing wrong with you."  Praise GOD.  I am cancer free.

I just want to praise God. Four years ago I had an ectopic pregnancy resulting in the loss of one of my tubes. I was heartbroken and discouraged but I threw myself at the feet of God. He never let's me down. Yesterday I celebrated my daughter's 2nd birthday and I am currently 24 weeks pregnant with my second baby. They are both miracles. Thank you Lord!

Well, I don't know where to start really...3 years ago my family was broken by job loss, drugs and alcohol. My dad and brother were overcome by the schemes of Satan. My parents marriage was falling apart as my mom felt deserted by my dad. My mom soon after filed for divorce and chose to put the house we grew up in for sale suddenly and asked my dad for a divorce. My brother was on an even bigger downward spiral with alcohol and drugs, during this time ended up in prison with a four year sentence. My dad was overcome by alcohol/drugs and faced a near death experience in the hospital himself. Though this was a tough time in my Life, as my family was always so close, I felt God pulling at my heart and telling me he was going to take me away, grow me and use me to assist in pulling our family back together. I felt God call me to North Carolina where I have grown so close in relationship with my amazing Savior. My church family and many others lifted my family and I up in prayer and encouraged me as I walked through this most difficult time in my life. Although I didn't believe it then, I cry tears of joy and praise to my redeemer that he has grown me so close in relationship to him, brought my brother out of prison a year early drug/alcohol free, saved my dad from his health condition and just this past weekend after all the prayers that I and many others lifted up brought my family back together for the first time in 3 years. My mom and dad are still in love and were laughing together, acting like they were married again and my brother is blessed that he has been given the freedom to share and spend time with his family. I stand in awe of my God and thankfulness today for his Love is abounding and his Grace is more than sufficient. I know that this is only the beginning of healing and restoration, as there are prayers that are still yet to be answered but I believe in the Faithfulness of Christ and in his perfect timing, just as now, they will be. I hope this encourages others, no matter what we go through he is stamped on every page!

How can I pick just one thing to praise my Lord for? He has put up with me for years... from the time at the age of 19 when I stood in the middle of the street at 2 am in the morning and screamed it the heavens "LEAVE ME ALONE!" ...fast forward to my life, age 46, facing back surgery and begging God to just show me His will, and I would follow it no matter the cost, even it it cost me my life, because I was desperate for Him in my life, and tired of trying to do it on my own. I sat in a huge arena listening to a sermon on Jacob wrestling with the Angel, not knowing who He was until the light of dawn, and then realizing it was the Lord. That was me... listening and begging God that no matter what, to make sure I made it to heaven, whatever He had to do.
One week later I was in the hospital, paralyzed in my left leg from the back surgery, and none of the doctors could figure out why. They operated again,to no avail.
Where was I in all this? Totally content because I knew that somehow, I was in God's will. 4 days after the back surgery, my friend brought in a pastor who was there to pray for me, with my family and several friends. He asked me what I wanted to have happen. I said I wanted to walk again. He then asked me "DO you want physical healing or spiritual healing?". It was like getting hit over the head, and I knew...I KNEW, this was MY chance, MY open door, and if I didn't walk through it , my life would be over, no matter if I went on living or not.
I said " I want my heart right with God" while tears poured down my face. And you know what? Jesus came and took all my burdens, all the crap I had carried for years, and He carried me over the abyss of my fears, disappointments, failures, and broken dreams, and He saved me that day.
And you know what else? I was miraculously, surprisingly healed that day...I got up out of my bed and walked, left leg healed of the paralysis. WHY did God heal me that day, physically? I don't know. I DO know that I have been allowed to share my story with many people, and I know it touches hearts and lives. But the best part is...HE HEALED MY HEART. He saved me that day, He gave hope and life back to my heart, and I will never, ever walk away from Him again. What do I praise Him for. My life, given back to me, knowing it is still in His hands, and it always will be.
Amen...

I was diagnosed w/ stage 2 breast cancer in Feb. of this year.  The type cancer I have is hard to find w/ a mammogram, but Praise God, they found mine. It's also prone to come back in the other breast after a couple of years. So, I had a double mastectomy and have almost finished my reconstruction.  Praise God there was no cancer in my lymph nodes and thanks to a new test called Oncotype DX, I didn't need to have chemo or radiation.  It's truly a Praise God.

God has been so amazing to me, always showing me I can trust him in all things. Before I knew God I worried about everything it got to a point that I started feeling panic over what might happen. My son at a young age started using meth and I just worried about his well being all the time. A friend of mine had been inviting me to a small Bible study that I really didnt want to go to, but God had other plans. I stopped by her Bible study one day to say thank you for a gift she had given me with no intention of staying and then something wonderful happened, there was a video playing on the television, it was part of the Purpose Driven Life study and it spoke straight to my heart. The gentleman on the video was saying that I had a purpose and that God loved me. I learned that God loved me so much that he gave his only Son for me, but not just me, for everyone. I never knew love like that but I wanted too. I had trust issues but God has shown me time and time again that he was faithful. He put a peace in my heart I no longer struggle with worry, whenever times get tough I go to God. I know that he hears me and is sure to answer. I also wanted to say thank you to KLUV, I listen to your station everyday and it helps me to be positive and encourages me to be an example to others and share God's love everytime I get a chance.

My wife developed ovarian cancer in 2007 and had surgery followed by 19 months of chemo treatments. July 2010 her back began to hurt and I knew it was really hurting for her to even mention it. Then she went to the doctor and she ran test for kidney infection anything that might cause pain in her back but revealed nothing. However her doctor did not send her home with muscle relaxers for a strained muscle she wanted to do a cat scan. My wife called her oncologist and he wanted to do the cat scan at his office in MD Anderson Cancer Research Center. We went the next week for the cat scan however her back was no longer hurting. They did not see anything that would have caused the back pain but did see a small tumor in the same area the cancer had been in 2007. She had a cat scan in January 2010 for a regular check up and nothing was found and was not scheduled for another cat scan until January 2011. When a reoccurrence of ovarian cancer happens it typically is in many locations and would have been if God would not have caused her back to hurt to get her to a doctor. And then for God to have her doctor to send her for a cat scan. God blessed my wife by finding the cancer before it could spread and surgery was still an option since it was only a single small tumor. When you have surgery your intestines go to sleep so doctors tell you to walk to wake them up to have a bowel movement. My wife walked for 4 days much faster than a normal person. Another patient asked her if she knew there was no running in the halls. Nothing was happening and they were not letting her have anything to eat or drink only ice chips. After 4 days a friend called and said we might try messaging her feet. So we pulled up on the computer to find there were pressure points on the bottom of the feet for your intestines. So her mother and I began to message her feet and within minutes her stomach began to rumble and with in the hour she was in the restroom. I know God was telling us he is healing her through the doctors hands with surgery and through our hands by messaging her feet to wake her intestines. Then she was going to have to have radiation treatments everyday for 6 weeks and we live 4 hours away so it was going to be very costly for her to live there. God also has provided financially for us through friends, family, and even a church that we had never attended gave us a love offering. We had 3 families at our church going through a similar situation so they decided to give a whole sunday offering to split between the 3 families. That sunday offering was almost 3 times the normal offering for any given sunday. God is alive still healijng and providing for his children today. Even though we do not see God today we do see his hands at work in our lives. God is so good!!!

My boyfriend died recently and I thought I would go crazy, despite constant support from friends and family.  I seriously thought about taking all of my prescriptions at once so that I could go to be with him.  I've been a Christian for a long, long time, so this was a shock to even me.  Satan is very powerful, but praise Jesus, we serve an awesome God that is even more powerful.  He pulled me out of that dark pit, restored my faith, and sent a wonderful Christian man to me via My Space.  I truly believe that this relationship has been ordained by God, and we are so in love.  Thank you Lord for bringing me through that valley and showing me Your perfect plan for my life.

Dear Scott and Kelli,
   I was listening earlier and heard you talking about praising God, and i wanted to share my experience with you... Last week i was writing some notes down about how my baby girl was progressing, and it made me think about my Grandpa whom i lost recently. You see i used to write letters to my Grandpa because he lived in Mass and Im in NY- telling him about our children and whats been goin on in our family. Now that hes gone i cant and it broke my heart!-So i cried out to God to help me and give me peace. i was balling my eyes out, then i thought about calling my Dad but didnt(my Dads not saved). Then God did something AWESOME which i know only He could... God sent my Dad to my house! I know it was God because usually
my Dad would call me first and he never called- just showed up! I ran into my Daddy's arms and told him how much i loved him.-We had a wonderful moment sharing the grief of my Grandpa! It was just beautiful! GOD IS SOOOOO GOOD!

My life has never been easy... My mother never loved me and abused me and my siblings. My parents got a divorce when I was 5 and my Dad raised 5 kids by himself from then on. He did it through opposition and doubts. But resently he has been making fun of my faith. He says he's godly but it is a facade. I love him but he can only make fun of me. He is very temperate and depressed. But even though he does this it only drives me al the more closer to God. I love God more and more each day. I can never picture leaving Him. I ♥ God.†♫

I want to give thanks to God for giving me the gift of taking care of my mom when she was sick.  In April 2009, my mom was diagnosed with stage 4 Panceriatic Cancer.  She was so worried about how she was going to go to her treatments and who was going to take care of her.  She did not want to end up in a nursing home.  Two weeks after her diagnosis, I was laid of from my work.  I found this to be a blessing because as hard as it was, I was able to spend time with my mom and I was able to take care of all her needs.  On March 24th 2010, my mom lost her battle against Cancer, but gain life ever after.  40 days after her passing, I recieved a call from my former employer asking me if I would like to come back to my position.  I felt this was a blessing from God.  He gave me that time to take care of her until he could.  Thank You Lord, for all your blessings.

i thank God because I'm starting to walk again...slowly but getting there. i was hit by a car from behind while getting stuffs from the trunk of my car (july 2009). the guy was put in jail while i was taken to the nearest hospital. the accident resulted in the amputation of my left leg. the doctor also suggested that my right leg be amputated as recovery would be faster. i decided, with faith in God, that I would keep my right leg. God gave me in the hand of an orthopedic surgeon from another hospital.he found out that my bone cells in my right knee were still alive,and so my right leg could still be saved. that started the "reconstruction" of my right leg. i went through more than ten surgeries on my right leg including muscle, skin and bone grafting.

all that time, while laying down on hospital's bed, i had this peace and hope that i could walk again. last quarter of 2009, i began using wheelchair. i had to go through intensive PT. june of 2010, I got my new prosthesis and since then i started to walk with the aid of crutches.

walking slowly, with still a number of things to work on my right leg to make it stronger.

but God loves me, He will be faithful to complete what He has started, as all things happen for good to those who love God.

Praise God!!!!

Silly story that shows how God is involved in the intimate details of our lives.  I was at my 10 year old son's football game over the weekend and they were playing a song before the game that was completely offensive to me.  I texted my friend who lives in the community and told her jokingly she needed to do something about the music choices at her stadium.  She said she had no power to change it but she knew someone who did - she said she would pray.  Do you know that the next time they played a song during breaks and at halftime - they played Its My Father's House!!!!  It's a big big house with lots and lots of room- you know the one.  Are you kidding me????  I LOVE HIM and PRAISE HIM that He cares and hears our EVERY prayer!!!!  He is soooooo FAITHFUL!!!!!

A few months ago, I pulled up stakes and moved to South Korea for employment; I am teaching conversational English to elementary school students and I love it!
  
I had something happen today that was so bizarre, I don’t even know how to explain it.
I was driving home and I was on a stretch of road that I consider a little dangerous, not because of the road itself—which is wide and paved with good intentions (a little joke)—but because of the drivers. Everyone gets on this road and wants to speed. If I exceed 60 KPH, my GPS starts yelling at me in Korean that I’m breaking the law and promising me a ticket, so normally I have cars passing me at what seems double the rate of the posted speed.

Today, a vehicle passed me and pulled back over into our lane and I saw a series of unbelievable scenes that simply didn’t match. You know how one can draw a cartoon character several times, each a little different, and then flip the pages so that the figure appears to move?  If you don’t draw the cartoon character correctly, its action will appear disjointed.  This is what I saw, completely disjointed scenes that didn’t make sense. The road was evident and straight for at least three miles and there are no other cars.

First I saw the back end of other vehicle attempt to return to our lane in the same location that was occupied by my engine, right in front of me by the windshield. I started to pull over to the right, but it was like I froze and I felt like a hand was upon my right hand, which was on the wheel; this hand was keeping me in place. I couldn't think at all. Normally I would let off the gas and/or break and swerve right, but I was frozen. I had a thought just to look straight ahead. I turned my eyes ahead but, unable to help myself, I looked at the other vehicle again. The scene disconnected and changed. Unbelievably, the other car was not touching my car but it was headed directly into my lane at a hard slanted angle that would put his side door at my front end just before the headlights. (How did his car move from a slight angle to a hard slanted angle? And move from the windshield to just above the headlights in a matter of mere seconds? Did the angels move his back end away from my car?)  There was no way it could not hit me. Again, I wanted to swerve, I pulled right about half a foot, but in another disjointed scene, I was back where I started. I’m not sure, but I think this disjointed picture changed about four times. Each time I looked, the other car and/or my car was not where I thought it was or where I thought it should be given the movements that were happening. If I had fully swerved out of the way at any given time, I would not be in the lane at all, but occupying the shoulder, and might very well be plunging into the guardrail. It seems utterly impossible that I maintained my position in the lane and was not hit by the other car. I was completely frozen in fear, not breathing at all, and certainly was not praying through all that. When I finally said, “Jesus!”  and started breathing again, the other car was two car lengths ahead of me, in a way faster than I ever thought was possible.

I honestly believe with all my heart, that we did occupy the same location at the same time, because of our continual relationship to the lanes, the shoulder, and the guardrail, but the miracle was that we never touched. He suspended whatever laws normally govern that situation. (The law of physics?)  Psalms 91: 11- 12  For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.  They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.

A few minutes later, I was questing if there was a reason and purpose for that, other than that He was keeping me safe, and just immediately this thought came into my head. I have a question about something at work and I felt it was illustrative of the fact that I need to keep my eyes on Him, straight ahead, looking neither to the right nor to the left regardless of how it looks out there. Even if it looks as though I cannot go straight ahead, I am to go forward in faith.

I'm thankful for Jesus who selflessly suffered and died for undeserving sinners like me. I'm thankful for a godly family, especially my mom who was called to heaven in 1993. I'm thankful for God's enduring grace and mercy - I'm a man of many mistakes just like David was but just as God delivered and blessed David, He has delivered and blessed me time and time again despite my blunders. I'm thankful for the countless opportunities given by God to repent. I'm thankful for the opportunity to be the man He wants me to be. I don't deserve such a loving, understanding, and patient God but He is my God and will always be my God not because I love Him but because He loves me. I'm thankful for such a personal God. Amen.

I praise God for the grace and mercy He showed upon my beautiful sister.  On April 26, 2010, my sister was home alone when a massive headache came out of the blue.  Frightened and knowing it wasn't a normal migraine, she called 911.  I received a call at 5:30 p.m. that she was being life-flighted to a Pittsburgh hospital with a Stage 4 brain aneurysm.  I packed a bag, hopped in my car, and began the 3 hour trip to the hospital.  I called several friends and asked them to put my sister on their prayer chains.  Then I turned on my sweet K-Love and, with tears streaming down my face, I sang along to my favorite worship songs.  In between the songs I prayed for God's protection upon my sister; I prayed for wisdom for the doctors; to keep me alert on my drive; and positive for my sister's children.  When I arrived at the hospital I was met by my nieces who told me they had given my sister a 10% chance of survival for the night.  If she made it through the night, they would do surgery the next morning, which would raise her chances to 20%.  By God's AMAZING grace, she survived the surgery and within 48 hours her breathing tube was removed, she was alert, and we could see her.  Not knowing what to expect, we prepared ourselves for the worst, knowing that she could have memory loss or paralysis.  My mom entered the room first and I heard my sister say, "Hey Momma," as if she had just walked into her home for a visit.  She had no recollection of what had happened to her, but was alert to date, time, place and knew all of her family members. She had one additional surgery in July, and on September 26th, I had the privilege of celebrating her birthday with her 5 months to the day of the aneurysm.  The doctors call her THEIR "Miracle Girl", but I know full well who performed the miracle that night.  I thank my Lord & Savior for keeping my sister here for as long as He sees fit.  Thank you all for your wonderful ministry and for K-Love to see my through one of the longest drives of my life.  Smile

I had the day off and was in our sun room this evening playing my drums to We Fall Down by Kutless and Shine by the News Boys on KLOVE, and I stopped playing to check the brownies I was baking for my wife...when I heard Scott make the comment about Kelli wearing yellow and black and looking like a bumble bee! I thought to myself could this be a Stryper moment? Too bad I wasn't recording that historical moment because it turned out to be just that. Scott said two others were wearing yellow and black too and Kelli said well yeah, didn't you get the memo for Columbus Day? Scott said that's what you'd wear to a Stryper concert. And then Kelli said he was dating himself...I've got news for you guys Stryper is still together and back to the original line up and they released their newest original CD "Murder by Pride" along with a world tour in 2009-2010. Stryper is a big reason for me to praise God today, because He used them to reach me back in 1986...I might not have gotten saved, filled and on fire for God, become a drummer and singer in a couple of Christian Rock/Metal bands in the late 80's and the Praise & Worship drummer at the church I've been attending faithfully ever since 1986, and where I met Ursula my beautiful wife of 10 years this month had it not been for the ministry that Stryper had back then and still has to this very day! They were the pioneers to break down so many walls and barriers for todays Christian bands and a lot of the bands KLOVE plays have either worked with them or acknowledge them in their album credits. For example Michael W. Smith has both worked with Michael Sweet and Oz Fox on his Eye 2 Eye album and on his "greatest hits" tribute album, he gave Stryper the honor of doing his signature song "Friends"...I have always wondered why KLOVE  does not play anything by them...they have some incredibly anointed music and I really think KLOVE listeners would appreciate their music...I appreciated the Stryper moment but would really appreciate hearing them on KLOVE! Scott you are not dating yourself by saying that as they are more on fire for God than ever before! God bless!

God is so good and I praise him for being the great I am, Heavenly Father and so much more! He restored my relationship with my sister who is out of jail, off drugs (meth) on fire for the Lord. The prodigal daughter came home (my sister). God blessed me with an awesome son-in law who is my daughter's best friend, a godly role model for my 17 year old son.
God also blessed me with a godly father who in spite of being diagnosed with stage 4 cancer (Mesothelioma) was well enough to walk my daughter down the aisle and give her away. God brought me out of a bad job situation (boss has serious anger management issues/verbally abusive)I am unemployed since August 17, but I know God has a better job for me. God healed me emotionally from the work situation I was in, restored my honor, dignity & confidence which had taken a nose-dive. God also healed me physically, my left shoulder was very sore from a fall (the fall happened the night before we (ladies from my church and myself) left for a women's conference last month. it hurt to raise my arm, but I persevered and told the Devil he's a liar, God healed me. I thanked God for my healing and told the Devil to scram! I won't stop praising the Lord. I could go on and on, but won't. I also praise God for the encouraging positive uplifting music on K-Love which encourages me so much.

I want to praise God and say thanks to klove for being God's voice in times of great need. In May 2010, I was driving and the song by Amy Grant came on, "Better Than a Hallelujah". I had to pull over becasue I started crying so hard. The words pierced my heart and I didn't know why. I told my husband about it and when the song came on again later on, he listened to it and wondered why it hit me so deeply. Several weeks later,on June 8, 2010, my oldest son, Ron, who was severely mentally ill, took his own life. I suddenly felt the words of the song about how a mother's cry is "better than a hallelujah sometimes". This song was sang at my son's funeral and many people cried out to God that day. Several days after my son died, I found a handwritten prayer of salvation that he had written and placed in his backpack. It was truly a blessing that will remain in my heart for the rest of my life, better than a hallelujah! Thank you to klove for playing that song on the radio in my time of greatest need and thanks to God for making all things possible.

my name is katie. i am 15 years old. this past summer i went to a youth conference in stuebenville, ohio. it was an amazing experience. i have always liked music, and the worship and praise that they had there was great. KLOVE is something that can help me remember my time at stuebenville. before KLOVE and steubenville, i was kind of scared to be a jesus freak. i have always gone to a catholic school, but i just learned the facts. i wasn't truly aware of just how much God has done for me. during that conference, our youth leader, andrew was giving us a talk about fear. he said that in the Bible, there are 365 references to fear and not being afraid. that really stuck out to me. if it said this 365 times, God must really want us to think about it every day of the year. later that day, there was adoration. there was music playing in the background, and as i was praying, i was whispering out loud for a while and then i was listening to what i was saying and i found myself saying over and over "i'm not afraid" and i started crying. (i am actually crying right now as i'm writing this) then i started thinking about what i had been afraid of. i was afraid to go to the next step in my faith. i was afraid of God's love. when you think about it, a lot of people who don't believe in God think that it's impossible for anyone to love you even when you sin. i was afraid to be loved. how can you love others if you can't accept love? one song that really helped me with this realization was How He Loves. this song is just so powerful. also, More by matthew west is a great song for this subject. these songs helped me get out of the rut that i was in with my faith.
i am no longer afraid to be a Jesus freak, but more importantly, i am not afraid to be loved.
keep up all the good work KLOVE!

God has been so diligent in keeping our family close to Him.  I am the only Christian in our household.  My step daughter knows of Christ, but doesn't know Him.  My fiance delcared when we first met that, "I believe that God exsists solely to punish me and that He hates me."  Praise the Lord, this view is slowly changing.  I call it "Christ-mosis."  I listen to KLOVE to fall asleep hours after my fiance is asleep.  Last week, we were headed to Reno and he stopped on KLOVE, started singing along to the song (I don't think he even realized he was doing so) and then when the KLOVE jingle came on, he quickly changed the channel trying to keep up his, "Eww God Radio" attitude, but EVERY TIME the dial stopped it was on one of the 3 Klove bands we get in our area and EVERY TIME he was singing along with the song.

I live with my fiance and his 13 year old daughter...that alone tells you WOW GOD that I can be the soon to be step mom #3 and am surviving in a house where I'm the only Christian.
Yesterday, there was a bit of a scuffle over some 13 year old attitude and chores not done.  My fiance is not a terribly tolerant man, but I was so proud of him for how he calmly explained to her why we expect what we expect from her and why things are the way they are and I quote, "why we are trying to raise you the way a Christian..er ah...moral child should be raised."  

It's just amazing to see how God is calling them, wooing them, opening their hearts to be able to hear Him and while they don't see it yet, I can see it and I know that my prayers are being answered.  He is faithful, just and loving.

Thanks for the opportunity to share that!

I became sicker& sicker, I knew I would soon
see God face to face. A friend who is a

I praise God for His protecting hands when the gas pipeline exploded. Everything that happened leading up to that first explosion was led by God's hand.

The time was 6:00 and my mom had just started cooking steak in the kitchen, and I went into the kitchen to help cook. Since I had offered to help cook, she got up from the sofa and came into the kitchen to finish up the cooking so we could eat early. I let the dog out so she can enjoy the warmth of the sun on that late afternoon. I finished cutting up mushrooms for the salad that I had prepared and went into my room to check my email. I walked out and I suddenly heard a deep rumbling from the earth, so I quickly grabbed my youngest sister and my mom and we huddled just outside the kitchen door waiting for the earthquake to end.

Josie, my Australian Shephard mix, was scratching at screen door, so I went to let her in. As I neared the screen door, I could feel this intense heat. I looked towards the direction from where I thought it was coming and I see this huge ball of fire. During the time of our huddling, a huge chunk of cement had fallen through the roof and almost landed where my mom would have been sitting on the couch watching t.v.. So if she was sitting there she could have been seriously injured or been rejoicing with God. At this point, I was extremely grateful for helping her out in the kitchen.

So I looked at the ball of fire.. just shocked and really couldn't move. Then God suddenly told me to tell mom and my sister to get out of the house and to my family friends house which was nearby. After we went out that was when we saw the fire, but realized how bad it actually was the next day.

I can continue.. but I just praise God for how He has led us to awesome people, that worked for the city and AAA, to be there and helped us in any way possible. Also if I remember correctly, you two were on the radio as well and the songs you two played, really brought peace and happiness in that time of heat.

I am praising God today for blessing me with my amazing husband. We have been together for 3 1/2 years, only married for 6 months. Luke, my husband, is the most incredible man I have ever met. He will cook, clean, vacuum, go to the grocery store if I don't feel like it...absolutely anything as you can tell, and all because he loves me. I know this, because he tells me so every day. I look around each day, at other relationships and I KNOW that I have been incredibly blessed with this amazing man to spend my life with. Our love seems to come so easy, and I am so thankful for that because it makes each day of my life more of a blessing than the one before. And believe it or not, we are both only 22 years old! I know there are 40 and 50 year old's still looking for the secret to a great marriage. Well I know what the answer is...GOD. My husband is a reminder every day of how much God loves me. Praise Him!

It was in 2001 that God really made a difference in my life.  I was going thru several emotional battles with the idea that GOD never loved or cared about me.  I was introduced to a very sweet woman on the way to a womens' retreat.  God had already planned to use her to help me heal from traumatic scars left from childhood neglect and abuse.  Within 2 years of God bringing us together, she and her family adopted me at age 36!!  I am so thankful God didn't take me home when I tried to end my life because I would have never experienced His true Grace and Blessings from the childhood pain I experienced.  I praise HIM DAILY for my life, and the godly people he placed in my path!  HE IS AMAZING!  And I also know that I am HIS LITTLE GIRL!!  Smile

Scott & Kelly,

Jesus saved me when I was 16 and in High School. But it wasn't intil I was in my 30's that I understood what a relationship with Christ was and have been trying to live for him since. You all have prayed for my wifes and my relationship for years and on the 1st of September 2010 my wife moved me out of the house and now we are seperated. Thanks to God I am living a closer life with God on my own and know the only way my wife and I will ever get back together is if she can find Christ for her life. Please pray that she finds Christ before he returns.
Thank You

I re-dedicated my life to Christ 2 days ago after my husband of 13 1/2 yrs left me and my son, alone, without employment and soon to be without a home.  Until I heard a story about forgivness and I realized we weren't alone.  I need only to look to God for everything.  I need to stop manipulating my way to get my desired outcome.  I realize literally every minute sometimes to let God's will affect every fiber of my being.  I could have done something today that would have made it possible to recieve a significant income and pay for a place for my son if only I would lie and try to deceive my way into this money.  I decided not to answer this call and I watched it come across my phone and didn't answer. I told God I would trust everything to him and I did and will continue to trust God.  I won't lie as I cried out to God just two days ago I would walk in his words and his light.  God has blessed us with someone willing to rent to us without viable income and I have until this Friday to pay deposit.  I am faithful in God's plans.  Whatever they are.  Apt. or no apt.  Job or no job.  He is my everything and I will remember every second that despite my pain right now he is with me every second wrapping me in his love and grace.  I know nothing, I can't fix anything, talk my way into anything.  I am waiting patiently and listening to our Wonderful ever loving God.  Thank you for this Radio Station.  It has saved me literally from the depths of despair.  Hearing everyone's story and songs has kept me going.  I praise God!!   All things start with him and I remember this.

During my last semester in high school, I struggled with feelings of failure, loneliness, and fear.

Somewhere along the line I realized I wasn't "good enough" to pursue the degree I wanted to, where I wanted to. I also realized that those people that I once called "friends," were not real friends. Worst of all, I developed a strong fear towards "everything and nothing at all."

Oh, but all praise the Lord! Where there was failure, Jesus provided a scholarship to another university; where there was loneliness, Jesus' love filled me and made me realize that I am never alone; where there was fear, Jesus gave me peace and strength!

Thank you Jesus for your love!

A week ago I found out that a person I have prayed for for over thirty years had a couple who were praying over him living right across the street the entire time and talked to him about jesus and prayed with him last weekend.  To know God heard my prayers and was watching over him took my breath away literally.  I have worried about him for years and God showed me he had it under control the entire time.  When I wasn't there and didn't know what was going on they did and they prayed for him.  He is doing so well now and I know their prayers were instrumental.  God is great!

My story is this: I was a victim of abuse at a very young age. The abuse lasted from the time I was 4 until I was about 10. As a result of the abuse, I was told I would never be able to have children. This sent me into a cycle of drug and a...lcohol abuse. Desperate for love and affection, I got involved in a number of abusive relationships. When I finally hit rock bottom and had nowhere else to go, God sent the perfect man into my life. God used this man to show me what true love was. Because of his unconditional love and persistant involvement, I was able to break the chains of addiction. This man continued to love me despite my feeling as if I were "damaged goods." No long after that, we were married. My heart was to be a mother, but I had no hopes of ever becoming one. I beat the odds and became pregnant shortly after my husband and I were married. However, I had a miscarriage at 12 weeks. I had 2 more miscarriages shortly after that. My husband and I decided that conceiving children was never going to happen for us. Devistated and feeling hopeless, we got on our knees and begged God to bless us with children. Six weeks later, I received the most amazing gift...my doctor confirmed I was pregnant. I am now the proud mother of an extremely ornery two year old and an energetic 7 month old. Both of my boys are true blessing. God gave to me what I was told was impossible. It's true - with God, all things are possible!

THESE ARE WRITINGS BY THE SPIRIT WITHIN ME AND THE MOMENTS I WANT TO SHARE ten years ago I had a tragic accident when hitting a two twenty electrical line and was in a coma for six months.
apon coming out of the coma family members were all around me and told me God was for sure with me and from that day to now God is always with me.

Another Blessed WEEK! From the start of my every day I seek the Lord to be with me guide me and protect me. In all I do I am Blessed in Heart mind soul and spirit because the LORD IS WITH ME. What an incredible honor to have a personal relationship with the Sovereign God!  “THANK YOU LORD JESUS AMEN!” And to all who read this I am not Preaching but sharing the TRUE JOY and meaning of MY Life here and now.

Another Blessed WEEK! Those that know me are amazed at my capabilities and my soul purpose in doing Well in all I do. I hope and pray that all see the Lord is in the heart of me! And my dad helped put him there! For it is his love that made me look where love first started and there I found the Lord Jesus or I should say he found me! THANK YOU LORD JESUS AMEN!

Another blessed WEEK! I know I write that a lot however that is the truth! Blessed farther then dreams I have ever had. This is not a dream “this is really happening”. I have Purpose and the lord shows me every day how to Live in filling my purpose. I am blessed and I feel that those I deal with each day are blessed through the power of the Lord in me. And when I speak of the power of the Lord I speak of the spirit in the heart of me at the start of my EVERYDAY! He gives me the true need in my life and fills the desire of my heart in every day I seek Him and His purpose for me!  “THANK YOU LORD JESUS AMEN”.

Blessed Again even in days of trials I am blessed. These days of trials are when I truly see the blessings before me. I ask the lord to guide me through the trials and the spirit of me lights up and I always accomplish that of which my heart feels is my purpose. Philippians 4-13 “I can do everything through him who gives me strength.” “THANK YOU LORD JESUS AMEN”

Another blessed week! I have had a joy in my life that since my children were born and have grown up I thought I would never experience again. Well I was wrong. From the day the Lord entered my life to this day, I have enjoyed the gift of TEARS of joy. I speak of things such as the happiness I see in those I do things for, that at times is so wonderful it brings tears to my eyes. I speak of ONE day that it seems my Dad is not in pain. THANK YOU LORD JESUS. And just reading back on my weekly writings now have brought tears of “JOY” to my eyes. ”THANK YOU LORD JESUS AMEN”

Again, Another blessed Week! Thank you Lord Jesus Amen! To put the blessings into words is impossible. However I am still going to try. To accomplish that of which seems impossible happened to me when I caught a bird in my bear hands and let it go safely out side the house it had flown into when the front door was left opened and it would not fly out on its own. When catching the bird I thought it was going to be hard and the bird was going to peck at my hand and I was afraid I might hurt the bird however the lord read the heart of me and heard my prayer and created a blessing in that very moment. The bird just rested in my hand as I pet it with my other hand and when outside I stopped petting the bird and it flew away. Thank you Lord Jesus amen.K love is such a gift each day God word is spoken though you You must be a profit to all that here your broadcast Thank you

I do not know where to start to tell you what God has done for me. I praise Him everyday.  He has given me Many true miracles in my Life especially in the last four years.  Four years ago I was wheeled into the er unconscious no blood pressure heart rate 250 body temp 92.  When they drew blood it was totally clear. I had lost 98% of my blood. I would go in and out of consciousness and a voice was talking to me saying  Remember I am in control here. I was moved out of icu the next day and walked out of the hospital the next day. I was told noone walked out after losing 98% of their blood.  God is still in the miracle business and i Praise Him each day. 3 years ago after searching and praying we found my husbands son who exwife had taken and we got him with us we have full custody and he has learned about Jesus gave his heart to Jesus and was baptized this spring.  I praise Jesus.  Last October I was again in the icu with a blood pressure of 250/190 and nothing would bring it down I stayed one day and walked straight out of Icu home . Our God is still in the miracle business and I cannot give Him enough thanks and Praise.  Our God is alive and awesome. Remember Pray believe receive and praise Him  Praise praise our Awesome God

January of this year I lost my job. Almost at the same time our house was on the verge of foreclosure, then our AC, refrigerator, washer, computer broke.  I was also suffering from a chronic back pain(due to having my children). It was the most depressing time of my life but it was through this dark valley that our God revealed Himself. He showed His protection, love and faithfulness. He is absolutely the every present help in time of need. Without a job, He was able to turn things around. Our house was saved from foreclosure, my back got healed, He provided for our finances from a settlement that was a year behind. He brought people in our lives to fix the AC, refrigerator etc., then, He blessed me with a job! He is my Hero and forever will be!! I praise God for being so ever faithful to His promises to us. and guess what?! He said He is not even done yet!

I am so incredibly blessed to have God in my life. It's amazing, considering I attempted self-injured and suicide various times as a teen. My youth minister was always there for me and I know God was working through him to help me. At a retreat I rededicated my life to God and vowed to stop self-injuring and to give my life to God. My problems weren't gone, and it was not easy, but God has been there for me trough every challenge ever since. I have been called to minister to teens, hoping that God may use me to do His work on earth. On top of that, I am now preparing to marry the love of my life. God continues to bless me in inumerable ways every day. Through my challenges and my joys He is present always in my life.

dearest k-love friends.. a year ago my oldest daughter whom had been living in texas moved up here to virginia with her four boys.she had been in an abusive relationship with her ex-husband.she is in need of prayer for deliverance. as her ex is now in prison for assault on her and probation violation, he is due up for parole in november.somewhere in side her head she feels she must be there for him.no matter what i would tell her she was locked into going and it all seemed hopeless.sunday a week ago we (my bride and i) requested prayer at the end of service for the boys protection...a profecy came to me from our associate pastor,"GOD IS GOING TO MOVE IN YOUR LIFE LIKE YOU HAVE NEVER BEFORE WITNESSED." tuesday nite came and we talked some more but to no avail from her.wednesday a couple from our church who have an abusive spouse ministery. they took time from their busy schedule to visit with us all. they told her the exact things that i had told her but they head the stats to go with it. un beknown to us the wednesday nite prayer service at church was focused for the well being of the boys. they cried out to God on behalf of four little ones whom they had grown to love in the short time they were here.  the next day when i got home from work my daughter was at the table filling out some papaers. i asked what are you doing there. she said that she was going to leave the boys here where it would be safer for them..all i could do was praise God and weep.
  my daughter is from a previous marriage. my bride and i have been married a little over two years now. we were married on 5-24-08. she has a son from a previous marriage as well. they are grown and on their own. these grandkids are hers by marriage.we have nine grandkids now and she loves them as her own.so now with four boys  ages 5,7,9,14 she has got her hands full. she definately needs prayer for strength and courage to face this. i told her God would not but the desire in her heart to protect these boys and not make a way to do it.as i write this tears flow down my face as i reflect on the blessings that  God has given me...unselfish giving has he blessed me. these boys knew nothing about God till they started going to church with us..funny how hard they are to awaken during the school week yet sunday morning they are up without any flack. they have a hunger and thirst for God and to learn...i just  wanted to share this with yall.
thank you

I tried calling but the line was too busy all day. Smile I just have to praise God that HE is the LORD of birth!

I am a midwife and deliver babies at home all over south Texas - about a 150 mile radius. This month has been a particularly busy month for me with 6 babies all due in the first few weeks of October. AND my clients don't even live close together, everywhere from McAllen TX to Beeville TX (the 2 farthest apart are about a 3 hour drive away from each other)

So, I was stressing about when these babies would come and kept worrying about it. Of course I have back up plans if that happens but still I worried.

Well, yesterday on 10-10-10 we had THREE babies! The first was born at 3:20am in Beeville, TX. The second was born at 7:07pm near Matthis, TX. I did have to call in my back up to go to McAllen, TX for the last baby though.

I was totally exhausted but praising God that He worked it all out anyway despite my worries. Then on my way home after about 48 combined hours of labor with the first two ladies, I got the call from my back up midwife. The last baby girl finally had safely arrived. And of all things she was born at exactly 10:10 pm on 10-10-10! It was as if God wanted to tell me just how in control He is of birth, even on that very busy day.

I could not imagine delivery babies without knowing the LORD is the LORD of birth! God is SO good! Praise Him!

Tomorrow, October 12th, is my one year cancer free anniversary. I was a normal healthy 40 year old mother of four. I wasn't experiencing any symptoms, but five mornings in a row last September, God woke me and put on my heart to talk to my doctor about a hysterectomy.
After spending 30 minutes explaining and convincing my doctor (also a person of faith) to allow me to have a sonogram, it was discovered that I had a 7cm tumor on my left ovary.
Ovarian cancer is called the silent killer because by the time symptoms are evident, the cancer has generally spread to other organs. I praise God today because He allowed my cancer to be eridacated from my body by surgery only. It was caught so early, I didn't even have to undergo chemo or radiation.
My being alive and well today is an awesome testimony of God's great mercy. I get to see my kids grow up. Thank you Jesus!!

Since 2006, not unlike many believers accross the nation I have been going through testing. Testing me with chronic health challenges and financial struggles due to 2 long periods of long unemployment. During these periods the Lord sustained me through His body and the Music of K-Love. As the Lord came through and rescuded me once again (at the last minute) He gave me a song each time. The first was Selah's "You Raise Me up" and the Second time was Mark Harris's One True God. I felt so moved by these experience that I shared them with my local congregation here in Salt Lake City. I am now going through my Third financial crisis and every time I feel overwhelmed or need to make a decison I hear One True God or You Raise me up. The Lord has continued to provide throug His body and K-Love for now He has chosen Josh Wilson's "Before The Morning" to bring me to my knees in prayer and humility and hope that in the end there will be joy and purpose will be known.  Praise God for His family and your station.

I have so much to be thankful for: Christmas 2001 my Christmas tree burned our house down and we all made it out safe. My husband at the time was sober. He began to drink. He left in 2003 2004 twice. 2005 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. When I finished my chemo in 2006 he walked out for the last time and filing for divorce leaving me as the sole care taker of our two girls. During this entire time I kept my eyes on Christ and my faith grew and grew. I now have one daughter in Bible College and the other in a Christian school. She will be graduating this year and joining her sister in Bible College. I am by far the luckiest mother on earth to have not one but two daughters who want to dedicate their lives to serving the Lord. My pray and my faith now lay in his hands that he will afford me to support my girl financially until they graduate college.

I just want to praise the LORD because He is the LORD of birth!

I am a midwife. I deliver babies at home all over south Texas. I travel within about a 150 mile radius of my home Corpus Christi, TX.

This month has been the busiest I have ever had with 6 babies all due within the first few weeks of October. And some of them were hours away from each other.

Well, I kept stressing about how things would work out. Of course I have back up plans for when I am needed two places at once but I kept stressing anyway and God kept trying to give me peace about it.

Yesterday on 10-10-10 THREE of those six babies were born and God worked everything out perfectly. We had three beautiful healthy baby girls all born at home.

The first one came at 3:20 am after over 24 hours of labor. The second one arrived at 7:07pm. I thought that was pretty cool that she was born at 7:07 on 10-10-10.

The last baby did end being delivered by my back up midwife because I could not get to her in time because of the other births. But God still blessed and wouldn't you know it, she arrived at exactly 10:10pm on 10-10-10!

It was as if God was reminding me once again, that HE is the LORD of birth. I love that!

I could not do what I do without faith in Him. Praise God that HE really is the LORD of birth! Thank you Jesus!

Hi my name is eric and i am a born again Christian but i was not always like this when i was a kid i was abused by my father mental and physical, He said i was not his kid that i was a mistake. my mom was on drugs and is still on them today. I have watch her doing them in front of me.I was also sexuality abused by my brother... when i became a teen i was very anger and tried to fell my heart with something. i started using drugs and fighting everyone just to make me fell good at wasn't tell my high school year that i stop that because I watch my grandmother pass away in front me she was the woman who raised me after every thing come out in the wash and i pick up the guitar and that was the thing that start to full up some of the holes in my heart. My JR. year I became homeless and still went to school to help out my grandfather i would play my guitar just to get a few bucks to put food in his stomach and mine own. Then there was a woman that want to my old church came up to me and said that they need a lead/rhythms guitars for there worship band and I want to join. i know every one who went there and some of them don't like each other but.... when we get on that stage and worship god that want out the window ever one was holding hands and swing with the music the energy in the room was nothing on this earth that was when i know that god was real and i want him god is the only reason i am where i am right now god has something plan for all of us.

WE OF THE CHILDREN OF GOD NEED TO SPEARD HIS WORD AND NOT TO BOTTLE IT UP BUT WE AS CHRISTIANS BOTTLE IT UP MORE THAN ANYTHING I THINK IT IS FOLISH BECAUSE MOST OF US ARE AFREAD WHAT PEOPLE WILL THINK ABOUT US BUT... WE SHOULDN'T CARE WHAT ARE SO CALLED FRIENDS THINK BECAUSE IF THE TRY TO MISS WITH ONE OF GOD ONITED THEY WILL NEVER TOUCH US.

God has been good to me and my family. We are not rich but we are "rich" in that we know Him. He blessed my wife and I with a son after 13 years of marriage, and Matthew graduated college this past May with a degree in Christian Ministry, and is giving his life over to Christ for His ministry. But lately the Lord has been blessing me with words to share my faith. And I wanted K-LOVE to have this poem to share with your listeners. It is about opening up yours EYES to HEAR god's grace.

Look To Hear

Praying, praying and listening
  For Your Word
On my knees and wondering
  Am I even being heard

Hopes and cares I have
  Lifted up to You
Problems in my life and wondering
  What to do

Are You there God I
  Wonder now
Do You hear me God
  Tell me somehow

This is how it used
  To be
This was back before
  I learned to see

He hears our prayers
  He knows our cares
He feels our pain
  He’s made that plain

He is speaking to us
  Everyday
We need to know how to
  Listen in a new way

Everywhere we look
  We see
In every living creature
  In every towering tree

He speaks to me
  With the rising sun
He lets me know my day
  Has begun

My prayers are answered in
  All I see
I need to look and
  I’ll hear Thee

You speak to us in the
  Face of a child
    So pure and gentle
We see Your voice in
  A garden in spring

You speak to us in the
  Magic of all living things

You always hear us and
  Answer our prayers
We’ve listened hard
  But were unaware
Of how to hear Your voice

The truth is out there
  But not with the ear
We have to Look
    And See
      To Hear

You wouldn't think I'd be here praising God, when I tell you my best friend died from breast cancer on September 4th. Margie was only 48, and leaves behind a husband and 3 children -ages 10-17. But I am! A little over 5 years ago, my daughter begged me to reconnect with a friend that I had lost touch with. There was no reason why we stopped talking after 20 years, we simply had drifted apart. As time went by, it seemed easier and easier not to call. One day, I tried to call her, but she had moved, and changed her number. Thanks to technology- because when I googled her, her business phone number was listed. I nervously called her. We talked a bit, and started again where we had left off. Shortly after, Margie was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer. I am so thankful that I was there with her,  through the 4 years and 8 months it took for that horrible disease to steal away my best friend. I am devastated that Margie is no longer here with us, but I am so thankful that I was there with her until she passed. I praise God daily, for the gift he gave me. I don't see the years we won't share- but the five important years I almost missed. Praise God!

I want to give all the praise and glory to God for everything he is doing in my life! He has restored my marriage, my relationships, and my life. I am now living a new life in Him and was baptized yesterday(which was also my husband's birthday!). I am so thankful for the awesome support of this new life by the wonderful members of the church and by my loving and wonderful family - my mom, my sister and brother-in-law, my little brother, my husband, and daughter, all who came to join with me to celebrate this wonderful time! He has answered prayers and continues to do so, I am in a constant state of awe at all that He has done in my life in the past few weeks!

We were blessed with our third child Cannon on July 6, 2009.  One day after he was born we were told that he had a heart defect and would need surgery.  We instantly started prayer chains.  We had so many people praying and believing with us that he would take control and show us how BIG he is.  We turned it over to him.  He had his first surgery October 2009.  Everything went great.  It was amazing to see how God was working in his life as well as others around us. He coded that Friday night.  Even though this happened, our Faith was not shaken.  I guess the devil thought this would shake us, but the was wrong.  We came home 11 days after open heart surgery. We were seeing a miricle right before our eyes.  Months later we found out that he would need another surgery and in May of this year we had his second one.  Again no problems and were home in four days.  Doctors were amazed at how well he done.  
God is awesome.  All we have to do is cry our to him.  My faith was so strong throughout all of this and I owe it all to him and the many people that were praying and believing with us.  I couldn't have done it without him.  It's amazing that he gives you what you need when you need it.  So many praise worthy things came out of this.  Not only for other people but for my family, me personally.  He showed me that he loved me more than anything and that I was sooo loved by him.  Everyday he continues to show us how BIG and MIGHTY he his.  I love you with all my heart.  Monica

In my heart, I sing thank You Jesus! My life has been filled with so much darkness. Trauma and more trauma isolated me from the world. I thought I was worthless, a piece of trash. I tried to fill my void through avhievements, an eating disorder, secret addictions, and self-abuse. No one knew the depths of my sorrow, but GOD. The world gave up on me, once a student who was bound for greatness to nothing, and the doctors said I'd die by 25. Believe me when I say I should have. I hurt so much, and I didn't understand why. I was lonely, lost, and afraid, and things kept happening, including the death of my daddy when I was 25. He was the only person who I could connect to. I was homeless, friendless, and my remaining family rejected me. A year ago, I found Jesus again. He became my friend. Through some of the toughest days of my life, Jesus held my hand, cradled me, loved me despite me. Because of my Jesus and a few faithful Christ Ambassadors, I opened my heart again. I laid down my pains, anger, depression, unforgiveness- all the toxins that help me in captivity, and my Jesus set me free. Within a month, my sister moved in, and she accepted Christ into her heart. Immediately, we were sold out for Christ, and together we are becoming the Dynamic Duo for Christ in our community. I began attending a woman's ministry where I connected to A Ladies' Bible Study where I connected to the best friends I have ever had. At age 28, I am no longer alone; I have my own home; I am healthy and stable for the first time in ten years, and I am now an active servant in this womann's ministry. I now reach women who are dealing with issues I have overcome. I love Jesus so much, and I thank Him for every day I get to breathe, for I know without Him I would have died an early death. To God be the glory!

I would like to praise and thank God for making His presence felt in my life. I have grown up knowing about God my whole life and going to church and " the motions"  It was ok but I never really had a relationship and love for God. All this has changed.Now I talk with the Lord daily. It has made a profound impact on how I am living my life and has helped tremendously my marriage.I am so thankful for my amazing wife and my 2 beautiful children. Most of all I am eternally grateful to God for helping me to know, love,and serve Him better. I also want to thank God for the powerful ministry of Klove as it has a profound impact on my daily life as well. The uplifting music and stories help to keep my mind,heart and soul centered on our King.

God has been working on me for over 4yrs now. He's been trying to get my attention and it took a lot to get it but now I am so in love with Him, I can't believe I ever walked away.
First, I was in a head on collision with a drunk driver.  I ended up with a closed head injury, herniated discs in my neck and all through my spine, a badly damaged hip and migraines.  Two and half years later I was able to return to work. Unfortunately for me, that was short lived. My back problems made it impossible for me to continue to work as a bedside nurse. I live with chronic pain now, but I don't suffer from it.  It seems a small price to pay for the love of the Lord and nothing in comparison to His sacrifice for my life.
Now, I am going back to graduate school to become a Family Nurse Practitioner.  In doing so I hope to be able to work with the homeless and AIDS patients. To serve the under served, to heal the sick, and give compassion and love to the unloved.
This is what God has been trying to call me to do for a while but I wasn't listening. Well, I am now and I hear his voice everyday.  In the music you play, the stories you tell, and the prayers you send to your listeners.

I like to thank God throughout the day for all the little things that make my life better:  that envelope of money I couldn't find suddenly turned up, that yellow light I decided to stop for kept me from an accident, the web-page I stumbled upon that gave me hope, the unexpected visitor I haven't seen for years, the kisses from my dog, the smile of my children, the reminder I know had to come from Him of something I needed to do, the sweet taste of chocolate, the hummingbirds outside my window, the fish we caught, the sunset.  It is all the little things that He has put in our path, every moment of every day that make our lives more interesting and better.  All the good comes from Him.  It is the little things we often overlook that can help us through difficulties if we try to find them.

Scott & Kelli,
I know I am a day late getting this to you but I was driving back from Dallas to El Paso, Texas yesterday with my family and we were listing to you.  If its not to late I wanted to share with you why I praise God.

As a child I grew up in a loving Christian/Catholic home.  My mother was diagnosed with cancer and had fought her battle and won.  At her fifth year check up she discovered she had leukimia.  She was given six weeks to live.  She fought again with such grace but lost her battle after a year and past away early Decemebr 1990.  I was 13 at the time.  I knew she was with our Lord and in a better place.  About six weeks later my father had taken my older brother and I on a skiing trip.  Little did I know that tragety would strike again.  My fater had an aneuryysm while on the ski lift and past away mid January 1991.  My faith was broken and I was angry and turned away from God.  Thankfully my father's mother agreed to raise my brother and I.  My teen years were filled with anger and darkness.  At the age of 17 I got pregnant.  The father of the baby said he did not want to marry me but wanted to be a father.  I felt alone, unloved and did not know what to do with the baby I was carring but something inside me said to keep it.  She is now 15 and an incredible young lady who loves God.  I praise God for her!

I never thought I would find someone who would love me and accept my daughter in the process but still having my back turned on God he blessed me with meeting my husband.  We have been married for 11 years and he was one of the reasons I came back to God. I praise God for him.  After a difficult time with my daughters biological father and accusations of physically abusing her, feeling beaten by the devil we went to church.  One week after going  to church I discovered I was pregnant with our first child.  We found a community that embraced us and helped me to find God and accept him back into my life.  I praise God for them.  Since then we have recommited our lives to the Lord.

About two years ago, one year after the birth of our second child and after a year of constant itching (similiar to a mosquito bite but all over my body) I was diagnosed with a rare liver disease.  The doctors explained there is no cure or treatment for this disease.  They said there is medication to help the symptoms but it is not a matter of if but when I will need to have a liver transplant.  I knew that my church community and God will get me through this and one day I will be healed.  I have not been placed on the transplant list yet but I know that my family and I will live life knowing God will protect us.  I praise Him for his grace.

When we first started to investigate what could be wrong with my body the song by Addison Road, Hope Now, would play everytime I felt my world coming down around me and it still does.  Yesterday as we were listing to you this song came on.  My youngest son, age 3, said "I like this song, what is it called?"  I was unable to speak as I was trying to hide my tears from them.  I praise God for Klove and your ministry that seems to know the exact song we need to hear to lift us up and remind us that it all about faith.  

I know this was a little long but there is so much to praise him for.  Thank you for giving us a day where we can think about how God loves us and praise Him for it.  Keep up the good work!!

Praise God for providing!!!!

My husband is the worrier in our relationship!  He worries about everything! Especially when it comes to money! He has asked me before 'Don't you worry about things?' I told him no!  I said to him 'God has always provided for us, and I have faith that he will continue.'

It seems that every time we've been in a crunch, God has provided for us. Sometimes it's a bonus check from work, or a refund of some sort. This last week, it was in the form of winter clothes for our 10month old son!!  Most of his clothes are hand-me-downs from my nephew, but I noticed that he was in need of some long sleeve shirts and pants for winter. Without even telling anyone about this, a co-worker saw me last week and said, 'I've got a bag of clothes for you in my car.'  HOW AMAZING! The bag had several pants and winter shirts and also shoes since he is beginning to walk!  PRAISE GOD!! He always provides!

Hi! I would like to write a comment in response to another listener’s testimony.

Michelle Linss, thank you for sharing your testimony on KLOVE. My heart went out to you when I read it. I accidently signed up for the comments to come to my in-box and I woke up one morning to find you there. Of all the testimonies, my heart was drawn to yours and I long to share with you regarding health issues  and of  the love of our glorious Lord and savior, Jesus Christ, to encourage you in Him. I wish I knew how to contact you.  

My early story has a similarity to yours: my father left when I three, my mother raised me and my siblings before dying of leukemia when I was 18 years old. I didn’t come to know Christ though until after her death.

This comment page can’t hold all the things I would like to share, but I want to tell you that doctors are often wrong and your condition may very well be curable. I have been making a study of the subject after being diagnosed with thyroid cancer and I have heard some incredible testimonies of many cures with a change in diet. I know it sounds simple to the point of absurdity, but it’s so true. I lost 80 pounds after changing my dieting to delete sugar, starches, and processed foods. I thought I was eating healthy, but I discovered there is so much more to it. I wasn't eating enough greens and was neglecting key vitamins and minerals. The doctors “cured” my cancer by removing my thyroid; I have found the cure for the continued hypothyroidism and anemia with eating the right foods.   One woman I read about had a complete hysterectomy. She didn’t understand that she needed to take estrogen for the rest of her life or she would die. When she came back to the doctor a year later, it was discovered that her adrenal glands were producing estrogen. Her excellent diet and healthy lifestyle gave her body the balance it needed to make this possible. However, the doctors were amazed because they had no idea this could happen. Adrenal glands were not designed to create estrogen, but thyroid hormones! However, our bodies are designed to heal themselves when in balance with food, exercise, and the word of God. I would like to suggest searching the internet for similar success stories and take the time to find a book called The Maker’s Diet, by Jordan S. Rubin. He was cured of crohn’s disease with a diet change. Another rescource may be contained in the Seventh Day Adventist health message (though I do not advocate the church doctrine). I do advocate the teachings of Henry Wright. I know with all my heart that being healed is entirely possible for you and I know that with God all things are possible.
He loves you with an everlasting love and has promised to never fail you, never leave you nor forsake you. Keep your eyes on him. Exodus 15:26

There is so much more I would like to say. I pray the Lord’s will would be done.  I will be praying for you and yours. God bless!

Years ago it seemed I had nothing but pits and valleys in my path of life but now
My life is a new story
I am a god loving man for with out the lord in my everyday I am nothing! He is the guilder of my heart mind and soul. He is My Steering wheel not the spare tire!
In my everyday I seek to fill my purpose in life and the lord is the heart of me which means in the heart of me is love that can grow anywhere, and with everyone I deal with each day I pray sees the lord in me and to know it and to live it is the life of me! I have     a lot of dear friends that became dear friends the first day. God has given me so many abilities and is why I am known as "THE HANDY MAN THAT CAN "! And with the abilities I am able to share these blessings with others and be used by the Lord to help and comfort others in my everyday works! "THANK YOU LORD JESUS AMEN
I just wanted to say that 10 years ago the Lord entered my life and the beginning was when I became disabled. His word is the seed of life and in Living it the easiest way is in Matthew 6:25 which says:
"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes?"
It is not how much you do, but how much Love you put into the doing that matters. I am all that I can be for the lord is in the heart of me!
"LUKE 1 V 37 For Nothing is impossible with GOD"
! I Know life is not always easy however in faith With my walk with the Lord I always have better and better Days! The only way to explain these days is blessed! To proclaim my walk in faith with the Lord is at the beginning of my everyday and through the whole day he is the guilder of my Heart Soul and spirit, which are the rulers over my mind. I seek the lord through the entire day and without fail he is here to fill my soul with his spirit. I say ONLY my soul because He THE LORD IS < IN> THE CENTER OF THE HEART OF ME NOW AND FOREVER!

I listened to most of "Surviving Divorce" and am wondering if God would be telling me or sending me signs to divorce my husband.  I feel He is, but I don't know if God would encourage someone to leave the marriage even if there hasn't been  love or support for a few years and there has been lots of emotional/verbal abuse.  Does God really want us to break our marriage vows?

My husband and I are both divorced from our child(rens) other parents.  We are trying to combine our "yours mine and ours" into ours, but his ex-wife  REFUSES to move on.  She is constantly causing problems and getting the kids involved in the middle.  We have even found a church home here, where God has been speaking and leading us.  His oldest asked if she would be able to come to church with us the next weekend--we only have them everyother weekend--of which we said of course!!  But you will need to ask your mom.  When his daughter asked her mom if she could come to church with us the next weekend, she said, No, Its MY weekend.  And since when did You (my husband) become soo religous?

We are praying to God daily to help us work thru this, and to keep us on His path, but sometimes, it gets to be toooo much.  What is there that we can do, if anything?

I am currently going thru separation and inevitably a divorce soon to come.  My husband left us(my baby girls) for another woman.  It's been 6months since it's happened.  God has really been able to help me forgive.  I have now found new hope/joy/love in my heart for GOD and for my girls.  My heart does not ache anymore.  All possible thru the grace of God.  He is just so powerful and I love him soooo much.  Dr. Meier talked about how vengence is up to God.  I agree that if they keep living that way in sin, God will not bless their relationship and ultimately vengence from God will happen.  I pray for my husband and his girlfriend so they can seek God for forgiveness and live a godly life so vengence does not happen to them.  The only sad thing about this whole thing is that I don't get to see my stepson and the girls don't get to see their stepbrother often.  I pray for him that they can still have a close relationship.

I have to say wow...18 months ago my husband of 20 years came home, after being out of town and let me know he had found his soul mate and I wasn't it...He got back into contact with his ex-girlfriend from middle school and this was God's way of ensuring his happiness...He had never loved me, I never made him happy etc... Prior to that, we barely fought, had a marriage most people would envy and I never had a clue he was unhappy. 3 months after admitting he cheated, he walked out while I was at work one day leaving behind our 2 sons as well. He moved in with her and basically never looked back as I stood in the rubble he left behind...After 14 months I finally relented and asked my Pastor for his blessing in filing for a divorce yet I couldn't even take that final step...So because I was so torn, I took the steps to move forward for me and my boys...I found a new Church home, was saved and baptized and surrounded myself with people of faith...The day I walked into that Church I was suicidal...Completely heartbroken and I didn't know where to go anymore...That was the first time in over 20 years I had walked into a Church and I am now enrolled in school to become something I never, ever thought I would be - A Pastor...I am still married, he is still living with her and now, today after listening to Dr. Meier, I know finally in my heart, I will be ok filing...God will forgive me because He knows I did everything I possibly could to save my marriage...Now I know one person can't save something that someone else doesn't want. Thank you - To my Father above, who lifted me out of the ashes that continued to suffocate me me...Thank you KLove & Dr. Meier.

Divorce can affect up to 5 generations:
Your grandparents
Your parents
You
Your children
Your grandchildren

All of whom must figure out how their lives will work when it comes to holidays & celebrations like graduations, marriages, births and of course holidays.  Let's also not forget your friends. They will not know whom to support and thus many will pull away from both divorcing people.

I never went through a divorse with a spouse but with my parents when they went through one. The parents go through it but the kids go through it as well. When I was fourteen my parents got a divorse me and my little brother ended up in a foster home for a year 1/2 it was very hard for both of us everything changed all around, but we both made it throug this thing. Today I am a pastors wife I made it through this and all because the Lord never left my side. Its not all about the parents it about the kids as well it is harder on the kids than the parents.

Wow, thanks you guys for bringing this topic up! I was an abused wife for 3 year years until I left my husband with a 6 month old in tow. That was over 12 years ago, and God and God alone took care of us and showed Himself in ways I never would have expected. My son is now a happy, healthy, and well adjusted 13 year old and I am still a single Mom. I don't know what God has in store for me, but I know He has been my comforter and supporter, the lover of my soul for the last 12+ years! There is hope and recovery after divorce; it is NOT the end of your story!

I wonder how could we just throw in da towel on our marriage.. on our spouse? If God hasn't given up on us, why should we give up on them. As Christians we preach bout da love of God to da world.. But when it comes to us, why can't we feel dat same love we have for the world. Nowadays ppl talk bout divorce as if it was a car that you're just had enough w/. We don't want to fight for our marriage because society nowadays encourage folks to move on. God doesn't want us to divorce. He speaks bout divorce if our spouse was to cheat on us or us on them, but not because we can't get along. Pease ppl, are u really ready to throw in da towel? If so.... Can Jesus Christ throw in da towel on us?

After a 17 year marriage, my husband had an affair, unfortunately he couldn't decided whether he wanted his family or his girlfriend. This went on for a year.  I protected our 3 children then ages 7, 11 amd 13 from what was going on until 6 months into him moving in and out. At the one year mark he told me that he wanted out and at that point two women from my church came over and helped me gather all his stuff from around the house, clothes personal items etc (he was at worked when he made this decision) and we delivered his items to him in plastic bags at his job at 2:00 am (he worked the graveyard shift with his girlfriend) dumped it in the parking lot called him and told he that he was no longer welcomed at his "home"...  The women of the church stayed with me as I totally fell apart.  The next day I had to inform the children now 8, 12 and 14 (oldest is a girl, two younger are boys) that their day had moved out.  The following weeks he would have little contact with them.   To make a long story short this happened in 1991... my daughter now 34 will have nothing to do with me, she will not let me see my grandchildren because of the way I fell apart after the divorce.  She feels that she had to take care of me.  Yes I suffered from severe depression and was hospitalized once during that time.  But I worked with a therapist and things got better and I was there for them.  When will she ever forgive me.. or will she.  She has told me to my face that this is the problem and she does not want to take care of me anymore.  I just want to give up trying to be part of her family and forget my grandchildren.  It takes to much energy.  When my first grand daughter was born, my daughter was divorced from her first husband and she relied on me heavily... I bought the crib, the changing table, she wouldn't push in the delivery room until I was there (I was taking a break after standing next to her for 8 hours) I gave her my car when I bought a new one.  I bought her a mobile home and fixed it up.. she walked away from it and didn't let me know and we lost it to the park management who tore it down, so I lost all my money.. I also gave her my washer/dryer/stove/fridge...lost those also.  Then she remarried someone with money and I was cut from her life.  I was diagnosised with colorectal cancer in 2005 and underwent major surgery and am out on disabilty and can't ask her for any help because it is a hardship for her.  I am so confused.  This is why I just want to give up on her.  My other two children are not this way, they are both loving and caring towards me.

I have been married twice and divorced twice. I suffered from terrible abuse in both marriages. I am a born again Christian for the past 5 yrs. Prsently, I am single and seeking the Lord for direction. In the past I thought of how I made a mess of my life. But thanks to the Lord I know that I have can turn to the Lord for all the help. I felt I was being judged harshly, but Jesus knows my heart. God bless and please pray for me.

my first marriage was not what i thought it was going to be. as much as i loved my husband at the time, he really was NOT an active participant in the marriage.  he was also an alcoholic, which made any kind of logic, reasoning, counselling useless.  i would pray to God and say "i can't take this, Lord, you need to help me here", thinking at the time that he would "fix" my husband.  eventually, my husband cheated on me, and i had some decisions to make.  after doing everything in my power to save the marriage, i realized i had no choice but to let it go. that was really tough to do with a 3 year old son...i was not really wanting to be a single mom.  when i really thought about it though...i kind of already was!  i was pretty angry with God that my son would have to go through this....but i could not turn my back on Him.
i have always loved the Lord and believed in his unconditional love, but my spiritual growth during the divorce was an absolute gift from God! i attended several divorce support groups in a local church, made some strong connections with people struggling with the same issues, worked through some childhood issues with my parents (and in the process helped them heal a few things between themselves), and finally understood what it really meant to trust and love God with my entire heart, soul, and mind.  what a gift to be able to give my son in the midst of his stressful little world! he now knows what God can do with our heartache and pain and that you can give it to Him and trust he will make it into something beautiful.  i learned that although i didn't cause my husband to cheat, nor did i deserve it, i did have to take some responsibility and look at what happened and what i could have done differently/better.  i did NOT want to go through divorce ever again!  
it was a long, slow healing process for me.  but i needed to be right with  myself before even thinking about another relationship.  i began to pray for the man God had intended for me...and that we BOTH would be prepared for a relationship THROUGH Him.
long story short, about 5 years after my divorce and about two years after i began that prayer...i met Paul.  we were friends who had been through a similar journey, and as we shared those journeys with one another we could see God's hand in the entire story! we had crossed paths on many occasions...never realizing what He had in store for us! and yet...we never COULD have fully appreciated each other without having walked those individual paths first. (our wedding song was Bebo Norman's A Page Is Turned)
to those who think divorce is terrible and "real christians" don't get divorces - i pray you find it in your heart to not judge those who must divorce. and if you are someone who is worried you will fall from God's grace if you have/must divorce--please know He is with you every minute, feeling your pain and waiting for you to trust Him -- let go and let God. sure...you have some hard work ahead of you letting go of the pain, anger, fear...forgiving those who hurt you.  but i can guarentee the ONLY way to let that all go is with God's help.
please contact me if anyone needs to hear more...this is definitely the "abridged" version, LOL! but i am SO blessed right now to have the most amazing relationship...beyond what i imagined! and i than God every day...literally!!!

I just wanted to share how awesome God was while I was going through my Divorce.  My husband left me in 2000 and I had two girls to take care of.  One of them was my Step Daughter, but she had decided to stay with me rather than go with her Dad.  I had a 15 year old and a 5 year old.  In 2002, the 15 year old left, and then when my youngest was 10, she went to live with her Dad.  All this time, for 6 years, I had been praying and asking God what it was that I had done to make them all leave.  I had started praying this when my Husband first left and had not received an answer.  I kept trying to figure it out myself and then we had a Missionary come to our church and he preached about Job.  Not that I am in anyway a comparison to Job, but he kept talking about what Job had and how much he had lost.  And then came the whole point to his message, and he said "Job never did anything wrong."  I am sitting in church and just start crying uncontrollably because God was talking directly to me.  This Missionary had no idea what my situation was, but God used him for that reason.  Since then, both my children have come back around and told me they were wrong to leave and came back with a heart attitude that only God can give.  So, I just want someone out there to know that even when it seems like you have lost everything, God is still there working and he will make it worth it!!!!

About 10 years ago, my ex-husband was unfaithful to me. We had been together for nearly 10 years (includes dating and marriage). He had a long-term extra-marital relationship with a woman we met together through a mutual friend. I did not know about the affair for at least a year and just one month after I found out about the affair, we found out this woman was pregnant with his child. We did not have any children together (something I am thankful for now) and so this was another blow to my already broken heart. As much as I always thought I would draw a hard line if there was ever an affair, God softened my heart to my husband at the time and I desperately wanted to save my marriage. We did separate within a couple of months as he felt the need to take care of this woman when she was first pregnant to ensure the baby was not aborted; however, we did not divorce. After about 4 months, he moved back in, we went to counseling and seemed to be making some headway until his son was born. He chose to leave me once again to take care of her and meet his son. Once he saw his baby, he was sure he wanted to divorce. However, he did not want to be the one to "make that decision". So, we separated again. After about a year of this back and forth craziness, we happened to run into each other in an airport and he again felt it was good for us to try counseling. Through that process, it became clear that he seriously felt like he was in love with two women. He said one as his "soul mate" (the other woman) and me as his "best friend". Throughout this time I spent so much time in God's word, seeking Godly counsel through my church.  Eventually through prayer and being able to agree in prayer with other believers through my church, it was time for me to give up and move on with my life because my ex-husband was not going to "make that decision". Now, I do not provide all of this to slander my ex-husband but to provide you background into what I went through. I can vouch that it is one of the most difficult situations I have ever gone through, but I want to offer encouragement because it was also one of the most peaceful times in my life because I chose to look to God, to His Word, to seek counsel of Godly people through my church and prayed hard. I don't know how many times I read through all of the gospels where Jesus discussed divorce and for many months I was frustrated because I didn't feel there was anything definitive (i.e., giving me the answer). However, through prayer and Godly counsel, I learned that every word of the BIble is GOD BREATHED, even the ones that seemingly say different things. I found that the Word did say the same thing, no matter where it was found in the Bible. God hates divorce, Jesus hates divorce, we should hate divorce. However, there are times when there is unfaithfulness and when a non-believer will not stay with you that provides for divorce. What I learned was this was not to be taken out of context so as not to just up and divorce when unfaithfulness occurs because we are all prone to wonder, even from a loving, forgiving God. I think that if both parties are willing and committed to work on rebuilding trust and committing to one another again, then divorce should not be an option. This is hard work because trust needs to be rebuilt and boundaries need to be set to aid in rebuilding that trust.

Divorce is hard and difficult and I still cry my eyes out when I hear of a loved one that may be going through a similar situation. However, we can choose to allow God to use it for good or we can blame God. I chose to allow God to use it for good and so many people shared with me how encouraged they were just to observe my reaction to such a tough situation to help in their own situations (not even divorce but just other really tough situations). God even used that time in my life to draw me closer to Him, I had a number of people in my life come to Christ because of the peace they saw in my life despite my circumstances. So, I just encourage those out there to just keep lifting up their eyes to the Lord, cry out to Him and he will lift you up and bring you out of this situation and you will be blessed for leaning on Him. God Bless!

God always knows when we need to hear those words that it is okay. I was married for 25 years. The 20th year I was diagnosed with cancer. My spouse didn't know how to overcome the pain so he started to go out at 10:00pm and come home at 4:00am. He said he still loved me but would tell me who he was with (a female). In his eyes he wasn't doing anything wrong as long as I knew. I tried to tell him how much it hurt me. Response was "If you don't want me to have any fun or friends, I'll stop". He did stop but moved on to another female friend by helping her out with her problems.
We separated for 2 years but he still did not stop. We are in the process of Divorce with which I still struggle with. I am thankful for a wonderful God's Support, a Wonderful Church Family and for the Support of my earthly Father and being raised in a Christian home.
Thank you for those encouraging words.

I recently went through a divorce after 24 years of marriage. It has been the most heart wrenching event of my life. My wife and I were in counceling with our pastor, and she was determined to leave. I have prayed to do as Dr. Meir suggests in his article. Am growing in my faith and seeking to get more active in my church, but still feel guilty about being someone who is divorced. Never thought we would be, God has demonstrated His great love to me, thanks for this timely piece on klove.

Was listening on the way home and was confused why Kelli did not challenge Dr Meier's statement.   It sounded like a secular counselor's comment when Dr Meier stated after you are healed from your divorce and are happy again go find another mate.  This is completely contrary to God's word.  Marriage is not a "if at first you don't succeed try try again".  Marriage is a commitment and according to the God's word Moses suffered to give the people a writ of divorce and God intends marriage for life except in cases of infidelity and abuse but if it does not work out you don't get a do over. 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys in blended families get abused sexually, mentally, and physically. As Christians we all fall short but should not cause sin on purpose (adultery/remarriage) just because God will forgive. Lastly it was Man not God who condoned divorce. In closing if KLOVE continues to allow the word of God to be perverted without rebuttal then my family and I will have to find another radio station to listen to.

in response to daniel mines:
have you taken the time to read what dr. meier has written that is posted at the link above?

i would guess that you have never been divorced...i used to think that people didn't really try or just didn't care, but my personal experience and the many people i've met who have been or are in the process of divorce says otherwise.

you said "as christians we all fall short but should not cause sin on purpose just because God will forgive". how then, do you justify your judgement and condemnation of those who are divorced/divorcing? isn't judgement God's job?  do you judge "just because God will forgive"? often those things/topics we are so judgemental about are a direct reflection of traits within ourselves that we are fearful of.

you also say "if it does not work out, you don't get a do over".  i think perhaps you've missed God's message COMPLETELY!  God is TOTALLY about getting a do-over!!! if you  recognize your mistakes and are truly sorry...he WILL forgive you and you can start again! that is why He gave us his Son to die for our sins and rise again...so we, too, have that opportunity!

i challenge you to find another radio station the is MORE in tune with God's love and his word than KLOVE! i pray for you and your family...being that perfect all the time must be a burden.  why don't you ask God to share that load? i think you'll be pleasantly surprised at his response!

A year ago, I found out my husband was having affair. We went to counseling for 3 months and I later found out he was still with his girlfriend the whole time, so I filed for divorce.  Our divorce was finalized in January.  We also have a 4 year old son, and my ex became verbally and emotionally abusive.
But...with GOD and his grace HE has brought me sooo much closer to HIM through this storm.  This divorce was for God's glory and HIS will was done.  It was very painful, depressing, and hurtful, but with GOD everything is possible and HE gave me strength and made me renewed in HIM.
I am starting a new LifeGroup at my church for others going thru separation and divorce tomorrow night!! And, I am sooo excited that God is using me even through the horrible situation of a divorce!

I was pregnant and found out that my husband was having an affair at work. I confronted him many times. He always denied it. He also has a drinking problem and so he promised he would change before d baby arrived. As I came to my 7th month, I new he wouldn't. I was not saved yet. But I started preparing myself emotionally and mentally. When my lil baby was born, I never went home. I left my husband.I started attending a church and accepted Christ in my heart. The  first 3 months we didn't see him. But then he started calling, helping me out, and coming around. He asked for a second chance... I believed in him. We bought a house and last Nov I found out he was having another affair. Or affairs I should say. I caught him with 3 different girls. He was soooo offended that he came home and packed his stuff and left us. Night before Thanksgiving he came home to bring our son a  toy and I asked him to join my family and I for Thanksgiving tomorrow. That Wed he asked if he could stay, he didn't have a place to stay. Then after Thanksgiving dinner he said he was sorry it wasn't what it seemed. Still denied every incident. I forgave him, I loved him. And things were sort of ok. But since like 5 months ago, he started coming home late, started not coming home about 2/3 times a week. Found some condoms, hotel receipts, etc...  I have lost my patience w him. He DENIES everything. And I can't be right w d Lord as long as I feel anger, as long as I am cursing at him, everyone tells me different advice? I feel lost, our lil one is 3 yrs old. He still has his drinking Problem. Please pray for me, for God to give me a Word, to tell me what path to take.  As long as he's not willing to change, or repent from his heart I don't think there is anything to restore. Thinking about filing for divorce.

My husband of 33 years left me for another women.  I had no clue he was unhappy in our marriage and seeking his soul mate elsewhere.  For the first few months I was an emotional wreck, even to the point of suicide trying to figure out what I had done wrong and how I could of saved my marriage.  I am thankful for my family, my adult chidren and my friends.  I have been in counseling for 6 months and just recently signed up for Divorce Recovery classes at my church.  The fear of not knowing where my next meal will come from and if I'll have a roof over my head have now subsided, as I know if God will take care of the lilies he will take care of me. This has been a long battle to reach this point in my life.  I still have many sleepless nights, and still question why, but I'm taking one day at time to see where I end up.  I am looking to find job as my husband was my provider and I have no income on my own.  Divorce is like a death without a body to mourn.  We must continue to pray for one another as we face this difficult journey.

Hey well I'm 14 and my parents have been divorced for around 10 years and i just wanted to say that having divorce parents is a VERY tough thing to go through and i have helped many kids that are going through this. Well i just always have the concern that I'm going to get a divorce when im married and i dont really know what to do when i think of that...

Tori, please know that God has you wrapped in His arms. I grew up in a home full of alcoholism, physical abuse, verbal abuse, etc. I've seen a lot of really bad stuff during a time when I should have had an innocent view of the world and worrying about what fun game I would play next with my kids, not about whether someone was going to get beat that night. But, I want to tell you that today, I am NOT an alcoholic, my kids will never hear a foul word out of my mouth, there is not yelling and screaming and broken furniture. My point is that we can rely on God to provide what we need. I needed to have a loving, positive, God-centered home for my children and I prayed for that. God was faithful and came through. I can't guarantee that you will not go through difficult times, but if you stay focused on God, continually looking to His Word to show you what your future husband should look like and WAIT for the Lord the bring that husband that he has hand-picked for you, I know God will be faithful in fulfilling your dream of not enduring divorce. We don't have to live in the footsteps of our parents or even generations of our families. We can stop it by trusting in the Lord and remaining focused on Him. My family and I will pray for you as we know how difficult it is on children in divorced families.

God Bless!

karla...praying for you.  i remember being so angry at my ex for his cheating and what he was putting me and our son through...and the struggle with all that anger and trying to be right with God.  God can take the anger...he knows you have every right to be angry given your situation.  it's that unsettled feeling, though, that made me work as hard as possible to let go of the anger and work toward forgiveness as that's what He calls us to do.  but karla...it doesn't happen overnight, so keep asking God to help you.  remember your child, and that he learns how to treat others based on what he sees you doing.  as angry as i was at my ex, i would pray for God's grace before i had to see him so i would be civil around my son. you are right in realizing that if your husband is not going to truly participate in getting help for himself there is no way you alone can save the  marriage.  people with addictions and addictive behaviors are not rational or logical...and they have a way of making you feel like YOU are the crazy one! speak to your priest/pastor and see if they think there is anything more for you to try. i spoke to two pastors who believed i had done everything possible for the two years we were separated.  when i finally realized that trying to save something so broken was taxing me mentally, i prayed that God forgive me for filing for divorce.  When i finally let go of the relationship,the internal peace i felt was my answer. that's not to say i wasn't sad anymore...i really took my vows seriously.  but the person i had become trying to deal with his drinking, lying, and disappointing our son repeatedly was NOT someone who was whole. God helped me restore that wholeness, and i am eternally grateful to Him. God bless, karla.

in response to cathy:
if i understand you correctly, you are struggling with whether or not the bible says you can remarry? if you have been married twice, why is your understanding suddenly different? or is it your feelings of guilt and shame that make you think you are not worthy? or the judgement of others who believe that once you have fallen from grace, you are no longer worthy of God's love?  traditional sects of the mormon church believe God's word supports multiple wives! most christian faiths/denominations are based on beliefs that THEIR interpretation of the scripture is the ONLY way to salvation.  isn't it amazing how many interpretations there are of the bible? all which can be twisted to serve whatever agenda one has.  why does God allow that? in my opinion, he knows people are all different and as individuals, we will be led to him through many different paths.  ultimately though, being CHRISTIAN in my honest opinion means being "like Christ".  and knowing what i know of Jesus Christ...he did not condemn, judge, belittle, persecute anyone.  he loved everyone, respected their beliefs even if he didn't agree, and gave his life for all of us so that we would have eternal life with the Father EVEN THOUGH WE SINNED.  cathy...listen to your heart, because that is God speaking DIRECTLY to YOU.  if you want a godly marriage, and that is what he wants for you, and He leads you to that person...you will know!

It is very odd-it's like more and more divorce is happening! I know Dr. Paul Meier.

I have been with my husband for 24 years.He is Bipolar as well. 4 months ago he said he was done with the marriage, because i had found out he cheated.Long story short. I had to give up our apt. because I could no longer afford it by myself. My husband is now living in his car and We(me and my 12&18 yr olds) moved in with my older son and his family. My son lost his place and moved in with his in-laws. Myself and my 12 yr old slept in the car for 1 week and we are now with my in-law but it is only temporary. I will be out of a job come next week. I prayed and told God I could not do this anymore and each time he tells me not give up. My husband does not want anything to do with me or the kids. He said that he had give up on everything. I am a wreck and so are my kids. Any advice?? Please pray for me and my family.

Divorce is not a sin and the Lord does allow us to move one and have love in our live again, if we follw him and put him first.
I am going through a divorce. Afte 6 yeas of being extremely controlled and abused I finally got the courage to leave. It is hard to see the people who are so judgmental and one sided about divorce. We are the Lords children and he does not want us to stay in a marriage where there is any form of abuse. Just as we would not want our children to be in a situation like that, well the Lord loves us even more than that! He has done nothing but bless me and my children during this pocess. As had as it is I know this is what he wants for me. Would it be better to raise a son to think it is okay to be abusive to women? All I can say to other women is seek God and if you have that peace, then don't worry about what other people say. It is easy to judge when you have never been in the situation. The Lord is our only judge we should concern ourselves with and if he is with us then who can be against us?
