On May 3 of this year I was diagnosed with breast cancer. 2020 had been such a hard year for me. My son had lost his job and contracted COVID, and my Mother had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and had to be moved to Assisted Living. I was angry with God for allowing these things to happen, especially to my Mother who had done nothing but love Him all of her life. And now this?? I thought, “Okay God, you finally have my attention”. I was out walking, a million thoughts swirling around in my head, when I turned on Life 102.5 and heard “Truth I’m Standing On” by Leanna Crawford. I had heard it before, but this time was different. The first lines of that song are “Scared, oh I thought I knew scared but I’m so filled with fear I can barely move”. That was me! I really listened to the words of the song and I felt like it was God telling me that He had a plan in all of this and He had been with me all along and would never leave me. I was reminded that His plans are perfect and even though I can’t see it now there is a purpose in all of this. Life 102.5 has been a light in my darkness. I am able to turn it on when I can’t sleep and it turns my thoughts towards God and his truths instead of lying there thinking about the “what ifs” and “whys”. I have listened to it on the way to doctor’s appointments, procedures, surgeries, chemo and radiation and it gives me hope and positivity. One of those times I heard the DJ say “this person writes ‘I had chemo today and I can’t sleep, please pray for me’”. That was my prayer request and it was so encouraging to know that right then I had people praying for me- possibly people all around the world! Thank you for being such a blessing to me through all of this and I will continue to listen and support this station.
