I ALWAYS PRETENDED TO BE A CHRISTIAN – A Struggling Believer’s Story

I have always pretended to be a Christian but inside I could never find a way to give God total control. On Monday night I sat in an Applebee’s parking lot crying into my best friend’s shirt. She played such inspiring Christian music and we prayed together. After 21 years, that night I finally gave up and surrendered my heart to God. I am happier than I have been in years, worldly temptations are gone, and WAY- FM is a constant reminder of what God did for me. Thanks for being there for a new creature in Christ.


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

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

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

I GAVE UP AND SURRENDERED – A New Believer’s Story


I came across your station about 2 months ago. I haven’t stopped listening to it. I was going through so much. I was close to God at different times in my life. I always found my way right back.

The last time I was around 16, and now I’m going on 24 in April. It has taken me that long to draw close to Him again. I finally realized that the only one that can get me through this life is our wonderful Father in Heaven. I gave up and surrendered to Him, and repented for all I’v done.

I found encouragement with this station. It truly has helped me with my daily walk with God. I started to go back to church recently. Then caught myself falling back into my old ways. Finally I denied myself like Luke 9:23 says “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.”

My life is forever changed. I do Bible studies now. I talk about my faith, and Jesus all the time. I just love what He is doing in my life right now. I pray all the time. I love it. I’m hungry to know more and more of His word. I love stories from the Bible.  He has brought so much joy to my life, and through your station I have found my way back to Him as well as my church.

I love Word on the Way, and the music just sings to my soul. I sing out loud to it, and dance in my car every morning on my way to work. This station has made the start to my work day so much better. I find joy and happiness every time I listen to it. When my day goes bad. I blare the music and just sing out loud. Thank you for this station.  God is so AWESOME!!! I pray He just keeps speaking to me and through this station.This station speaks the truth, and just is very touching!! 🙂

God Was Reaching Out To Me Through The Song

A Struggling Believer’s Story

I was at a low point in my life and felt lost and forgotten, but then “Courageous” by Casting Crowns came on while I was flipping through radio channels. Something told me to stick with the channel and hear the song until the end. I realized that was God reaching out to me through the song. Now, I’m happy to say that WAY-FM was the starting point for me and my walk with Christ  after being away from Him for so long.

A Struggling Believer’s Story

There are songs that move you, then there are songs that stop you in your tracks. That is what “Worn” did to me and for me. This year has been like no other in my life. My grandmother had a massive stroke, which she will not recover from.  My grandfather was diagnosed with liver cancer and given 2 months to live. I then lost my job, and now we are in danger of losing our home.  I will find a way it will be okay. I repeated this mantra daily… but I didn’t pray . Then we got the call my dear cousin at 24 had taken her own life. The defeat was eminent. I was and still am broken. This I could not accept. How would I be strong for my children? How would i be strong for my family? I still did not pray . Not because I don’t believe in prayer or know how, my father is a pastor.  I was raised in the church . But because praying wasn’t going to change anything . And then while driving to the store feeling broken,  “Worn” came on and it stopped me . What was I doing? How am I supposed to carry this weight by myself ? Let me know redemption wins. These trials, this sadness I deal with every day are not mine to bear alone. I am fighting a battle, a spiritual battle. I have been fighting it every day for years now trying to ignore the fact that I have to let Him take control . I ‘m worn there is no doubt about it, and my prayers are wearing thin.  In the car at the store I gave up . I gave up trying to bear the pain, trying to understand why God had taken so much from me. I said,  “It is yours.” I am still struggling, I am still sad , but I am not alone . And redemption will win.

A Young Believer’s Story

I heard the song “Even If” for the first time tonight while I was studying and it really got to me. For me that song is what every non christian should listen to, to realize even if it is not the outcome that you wanted it is what God had planned for your life. I believe God played that song for me to hear tonight because it put into words what I wish I could explain to people on how I feel about God on time love. Thank you Way FM for the inspirational music. I am a college student and this station really helps me to focus on God and realize just how amazing he really is. God Bless.

A Struggling Believer’s Story

I am a recovering addict. For 14 years I used drugs and put my family through alot. There were a few times I got clean, went to rehab, got close to God. But the enemy continued to tempt and grab ahold of me. My dad never gave up on me. He would call me and tell me to listen to this Christian radio station. I also lost my mother when I was 13 years old.

When the song came out by Natalie Grant, “Held”, he would call me everytime to listen to it. He said that WAY-FM gave him hope and helped him through all of my stuff. Today, I ONLY listen to WAY-FM. It lifts me up and puts me right where I need to be daily. I love the fact that my daughter, Hayden and I know and sings most of the songs. Thank you! God really works through WAY-FM and through the music played. I LOVE WAY-FM!

An Experienced Believer’s Story

My wife, who is pregnant, underwent surgery to remove her ovary due to a mass that had overtaken it. The prognosis was grim as we and the doctors expected it to be the beginning of a long battle.

They said she might not make it through the procedure. They said we might lose the baby, and then there was the danger of the impending cancer.  During this period the Third Day song, “I need a Miracle” seemed to play all the time. The timing was incredible because although we were very positive and hopeful, I felt like we needed a miracle. We prayed for a positive outcome and that God’s will would be done. The procedure only took one hour.

My wife and the baby come through fine and the tumor was benign. Praise God!!!


A Struggling Believer’s Story

Monday was three months since my boyfriend and the guy I though I was going to marry was taken away from me. It was really hitting me even more than normal. I was at work doing what I had to do but not wanting to do anything. I always listen to WAY-FM, but today the music was God-sent. In an hour’s time, there were about 7 songs that spoke to me and the pain I’m dealing with daily. They reminded me of the hope I have in my Lord and Savior even when things look awful. Thank you for your station; ya’ll are truly impacting lives.
