"GOD'S NOT DEAD" Bayahni's Story

"I asked her how she had been so brave through it all and she said that she asked Jesus to help her and that he had. Then she started singing 'God's not dead, he's surely alive, living on the inside roaring like a lion.' " ~ Gennie, Bayahni 's Mom

Bayahni is a 3yr old girl who suffered from intussusception, which is a painful medical condition involving the intestines.  She was recently hospitalized and had to go through painful procedures to to try and get her back to healthy.

Her mother, Gennie, shared their story on the AIR1 Facebook Page:

 

"During the first procedure I was holding her hands and rubbing her cheek, telling her how much I loved her and how strong and brave she was, and how very proud of her I was/am, she laid crying, but cooperative. I prayed for her. 

I asked her how she had been so brave through it all and she said that she asked Jesus to help her and that he had. Then she started singing "God's not dead, he's surely alive, living on the inside roaring like a lion." 

Then she asked "mom can we listen to Air1 on your phone, I like Air1, it's my favorite." We listened on my phone for several hours, she was singing and dancing to the songs, the Drs and nurses were all amazed by her. When they x-rayed to see if everything was back where it should be, it was! The Dr came in and gave her stickers for being such a trooper and gave us the good news that we could go home. She took the stickers and put them on every doctor and nurse we passed as we were leaving and said that God wanted her to thank them for making her better. My 3 year old has got it, she knows what's important and how to face fears, and has increased my faith in Christ exponentially. Again thank you all for doing what you do and making the impact that you make on people."

 

 

THANK YOU for being a part of the AIR1 Family, you helped Bayahni and her Mom get through a difficult day….

Building 429 in Newtown CT

 

"We Believe in a God who is big enough to heal the biggest wounds" ~Building 429

We just started playing this song on Air1.  Based on Psalm 62 "We won't be Shaken" is a great reminder that Jesus is our solid rock.  This is some amateur video of Building 429 singing "We Won't be Shaken" at A Night of Hope & Healing (in the midst of the Sandy Hook tragedy) with Steven Curtis Chapman, Chris Tomlin, Toby Mac, Casting Crowns, Mandisa, Building 429, Laura Story, speakers Louie Giglio, Max Lucado & Mary Beth Chapman at Webster Bank Arena, Bridgeport, CT on 1/15/13.  I thought you might enjoy this speech given by Building 429 to bring Hope to the families of Newtown….

"Heal This Home" God In Marriage

A woman called my show after hearing this song.  She is struggling in her marriage and on the verge of divorce.  Her and her husband used to serve together at thier church, he was in a Christian rock band, they loved the Lord, and raised 3 beautiful children.  So what happened???

Today, he has lost his faith in the Lord, he gets angry a lot, she has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, and has come close to committing suicide.  Their marriage is falling apart, but she doesn't want to give up.  She is putting all her trust in GOD to "heal this home" because she knows HE has the love and power to answer her prayers to mend her marriage.

I asked her "What if he doesn't answer your prayers in the way you think or expect?" She told me she knows and believes with all her heart and soul that no matter the outcome, either way, God is in it and He works all for good, until then she says "I am not giving up."

 

If you are married, what are your "secrets" to a healthy successful marriage?

"WORN" Why GOD? Do you not love me?

 

 

Sometimes things happen in life that make us ask GOD .. WHY??  Why are you letting this happen to me?  Aren't I faithful?  Don't you LOVE me? I thought you could do anything?  Then why are you doing this?

This is where I believe, no matter how hard it is and how much it hurts,  this is where our FAITH kicks in and we have to TRUST somehow that GOD has good in this mess somewhere.  HE PROMISES US THAT in THE WORD right?  

Our PLAN may not be the same as HIS, and we may never be able to COMPREHEND why or how, but we have to have FAITH that HE IS WORKING ALL FOR OUR GOOD.  

HE LOVES US THAT MUCH.  

IF HE IS WILLING TO SACRIFICE HIS SON FOR US, HE CAN SACRIFICE ANYTHING FOR US.

Jerry Johnson is a brave young high schooler from Cleveland, Tennessee.  He is on the Wrestling Team for Bradley High School. He suffered an injury and called me yesterday asking for PRAYERS because he was devastated that he may not be able to wrestle his Senior Year. Wrestling is what brought him closer to GOD and he is confused, hurt, scared.  

Jerry wasn't close to GOD in Middle School because he was bullied for being 350 pounds.  He was unhealthy and unhappy.  Until his coach taught him about GOD and the BIBLE, and brought him into the world of wrestling. For the first time, Jerry feels important, he feels like he is LOVED BY GOD, he is HEALTHY, he has a sense of family with his coach and wrestling, and it's all because his coach believed in him and taught him about GOD.

Wrestling keeps Jerry close to GOD and confident.  You can understand now why Jerry is confused about his injury. Please keep Jerry in your prayers.

I shared with Jerry this story that Mike Donehey told about the song "WORN" in his video journal.  I hope when you watch the video below, you are inspired that no matter what happens and no matter how HOPELESS things may seem, GOD has a BEAUTIFUL PLAN for YOU, even if it is not what you planned….

 

 

Have you experienced this in your life? How does this song "WORN" relate to you?  How has GOD changed your life in ways that you didn't expect?
