I am going to get out of my comfort zone and share something with you.
This past 15 months have been the most difficult for my family and most emotional season of our lives so far. I’ve been feeling truly devastated and alone, even in a roomful of people. So, I’ve been doing something ALL DAY and NIGHT. I am listening to Praise 106.5 not just playing the songs, but REALLY listening to the words. It has truly been a healing balm to my broken heart.
After playing Christian music on the radio since I was 15 years old you would think I would be tired of ALL the songs we play. During this particularly challenging season in my life I am learning to be obedient to God and to simply ‘Be still.’ Just listen for the voice of God which sometimes comes in an encouraging text from a trusted friend, a sermon at church, or through the music I play on the radio everyday. I’ve found myself keeping my radio on at all times in the car and right by my bed, even when I’m NOT at home.
It has truly been a lifeline for me, just like when YOU share your stories with us about a certain song that helps you get through your day. Just because I am blessed to work everyday at Praise 106.5 and have the priviledge to wake you up with my cheerful voice and silly antics doesn’t mean that my life is perfect and free from heartbreak. So when I’ve come to work at o’ dark thirty in the morning with tears streaming down my face… Jim, my wonderful co-host usually knows…’it’s just the right song at the just right time…’ even for me.
‘Be Still and Know that I am God’ Psalm 46:10
