365 Blessings

It’s been one year since I began working at SPIRIT 105.3 and what an amazing year it has been! Every day I walk into work… I think, "What is God up to today? Who in our SPIRIT family is He going to bless and how can I help?" I’ll tell ya, He never disappoints. I want to share a few of the blessings that came my way this past year.

I got a call from Wes who was heartbroken and struggling in his marriage. He told me after many days of despair that the song “Redeemed” by Big Daddy Weave came on and he said, “It felt like God was speaking to him through the music letting him know that He loves him regardless of what is happening and that everything is going to be ok.” Jo played the Secret Sound one day and shared that she was trying to collect dessert trays for an organization that helps  young women get off the streets and rebuild their life. More than a dozen of you called and said, “How can I help?! Where can I drop desserts off for Jo?” Then there was 7 year old Maya who phoned in during our “Share the SPIRIT” campaign and said she wanted to donate her allowance so others can feel the love of God through the radio station. And my favorite blessing was when a Mom of three won tickets to Silverwood Theme Park in Idaho. She shared that her husband had lost his job and that they were living with her parents because times were so tight. She was so excited to get the tickets which she called “Hope” that things were going to get better. The best part came when an anonymous listener called up shortly after and offered to pay for a night at a hotel so that the family didn’t have to drive back the same day from Idaho, and they could truly enjoy being together as a family.

Wow! I’m humbled, amazed, and in awe of your heart and love for thy neighbor. I’m so grateful for this job because I get to see how God is working in your life. I look forward to coming to work every day because I never know what He is going to do next! It brings me such joy! Thank you for sharing your highs and lows with me. It’s an honor to serve you and work at this amazing station.

Merry Christmas!

Love, Peace, Hope and Joy,

~Ana

  • The Pumpkin Parable

    Every autumn I'm reminded of this parable when I see a pumpkin: "Being a human being is like being a pumpkin. God lifts you up, takes you in, and washes all the dirt off you. He opens you up, touches you deep inside and scoops out all the yucky stuff-- including the seeds of doubt, hate, greed, etc.Then He carves you a new smiling face and puts Read More
