My mother wanted so dearly to help me but she did not know how. In the end she gave me my small battery only operated radio, I must have on one of my vacations whilst working in Saudi. I did not want the radio, because I wanted silence.
Silence to hear the fearce winds of G'bay and the bird song in the mornings. I was desperate to hear God's voice speaking to me again, but all I could hear was the still cold and darkness of depression
So that night in August I have switched on my little radio and the first station that came on was "Liewe Heksie" on RSG with the story after. For the first time I was enjoying myself. It reminded me when I was a child and there was only radio and no TV, In the years of Springbok radio, which was my favourite radio station. It broadcasts
I have decided to explore the stations on the radio. In Saudi I streamend Bok radio to keep in touch with life in Cape Town. I have turned the knob and the next station coming up I heard a worship song of Hillsong. My favourite worship. In Saudi Arabia there was no religious freedom, Bibles and Churches were forbidden and our King Jesus was humiliated
I had no idea I was busy with self murder of my soul, putting me in a circle of dark lost depression
Coming back to that night, hearing Hillsong was soothing to my soul. I was so happy to hear the gospel music, my own collection
Then for the first time I heard the voice of my Lord, breaking for the depth of my depression
Since then, which was now seven months ago, I have never switched of the radio, it got stuck on Tygerberg Radio, 104 FM. It is even on in my car, so that I never miss a bit. It slowly filled my spiritual tank. I started going to Hillsong Church in Somerset West. I have joined Bible study in evening college and am now scheduled for baptism by the Holy Spirit on the 25th of March, God willing.
Radio Tygerberg played an essential role in my recovery from post traumatic spiritual stress. And I thank you from the bottom of my heart. You were medicine God sent to mend my broken and exhausted soul!
One request, can you please put pictures of presenter team on the Face book page. It would be great to put faces to the voices from my little radio!
Sincere thanks to all of the team for the huge role you are playing daily in the lives of thousands of Christians
Just dont always have the time to sit back and relax.
