What is your 180 degree turnaround?

“Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you preserve my life" ~Psalm 138:7a

What is your 180 degree turnaround story? Read James':

Last year in August I went from being an amazing athlete who was self centered, thinking my life was perfect just the way it was, to an injured athlete. My life threw the biggest curve ball my way. That, along with other stuff, caused me to go into a severe depression, and I was on the brink of suicide. But one of my friends helped me out. They said in a time like this you really need to just let God take control of your life, and you will feel so much better about stuff. My friend got me hooked onto Air1, and in my time of need you guys showed me the light. I think it is safe to say I owe you my life.

The Story of the Pizza Girl

Thank you so much for all your support! This is a story from a co-worker here at Air1 about a faithful giver:

During the last hour of one of our pledge drives on New Year's Eve, a woman called in to pledge. Her husband had just left her, and she was forced to bring up her child alone. She delivered pizzas for a living, and Air1 was the only thing keeping her from going off the edge. Each day she was on the verge of losing hope, and each day for eight hours as she drove around delivering pizzas, Air1 would remind her of the hope that she has in God.

"I want to give more, but I simply can't. Maybe in the future things will turn around, but I couldn't continue listening without supporting. You have done so much for me..."

You don’t have to be married, you don’t have to have gone to college, you don’t have to have everything together, you just have to have faith. Faith that whatever you give will be used in ways you could ever imagine.

What song has impacted you?

Like the song "Missing Pages" by Seventh Day Slumber? I had a whole new look on the song after this story:

Brent I won an Air1 contest to see Seventh Day Slumber. I asked so many people to go with me and finally my buddy that I mentored Damus came. He loved the concert and it was normal. Till they played "Missing Pages." He started crying. Later Seventh Day Slumber asked the crowd, “have you ever thought about taking your life?” Damus raised his hand. Then the lead singer told his testimony. He called everyone who needed Jesus's touch. That moment Damus chose to trust Jesus and not kill himself. He told me what happened and why. We prayed. HE IS STILL ALIVE. He would of killed himself Tuesday. Thank you and Thank God for seeing what we could not see. Thank you also SEVENTH DAY SLUMBER.
Listen to part of "Missing Pages" by Seventh Day Slumber

Carrying You Through

So often we try to be independent, going our walks of faith on our own. But sometimes we can use the extra help of those around us to help us get to where Jesus can best work in our lives.

In Mark 2:1-12 Jesus heals a paralytic man. Here’s the catch though. The paralytic man had to be carried by his four friends to get to where Jesus was. He had to rely on his friends to bring him to Jesus.

Just like the four men had to work together to bring their paralytic friend to Jesus, you and I have to work together to bring others to Christ. So, how can we work together to spread the news of the Lord?

What Are You Ashamed Of?

It’s so easy to get caught in the trap of being ashamed of what we believe in. But the guys from Newsboys have it right in their song “I’m Not Ashamed.” They’re not afraid to talk about Jesus and shine his light.

“I'm not ashamed to let you know
I want this light in me to show
I'm not ashamed to speak the name of Jesus Christ”

So, what keeps you from stepping out, unashamed of your faith?
