And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life. 1 John 5: 11-12
Life in the Son happens when believers learn to lean on the Master, especially in the most difficult of times.
Jan says, “This summer, my daughter Beth was hit by a car, while riding her motorcycle. She sustained a crushed left leg, resulting in an amputation of the lower part of her leg. Though she was wearing her full helmet, she had a brain injury, classified as a grade 3, the most severe. The doctors offered little hope. Through the long, dark hours, we would play Christian music to help soothe her. Slowly we saw signs that Beth was still there, though the doctors would say, “It’s just reflexes” We instead trusted in the power of the Lord and didn’t give into despair. We began to share with family and friends on Caring Bridge. This began an outpouring of prayers and support, often from others we have never met. As I sat by her bedside, the comfort and strength I received from hearing the message of God’s love and faithfulness through music was unending. Miraculously, 4 weeks later, Beth is talking, writing, knows her family, and shows so many signs that she will be very close to having all her former self back.
The Lord has been good to us; He answers prayers of the faithful and trusting. When Beth was first able to talk, she asked for music to be played. I asked what she wanted and she said “Life”. Not sure what she meant by that, I started playing some music, when faintly I heard, “Life 101.9, I listen to that.” I should have known, as she has Life 101.9 on in her car and home as a continuous background to what she is doing. Beth is a strong woman of faith, strong-willed, and devoted to her loving husband and 17 month-old son. She will make it through this, strengthened and comforted by your uplifting source of music. I just wanted to thank Life 101.9 for the important role you have in my daughter’s recovery and the comfort that has come through your music and words.”
Something to think about.
