There Must Be More Than This

INDIA — Krishnan was unable to sleep, and kept feeling restless and irritable. All through his life, he could not help but feel that there was something more. Peace and happiness seemed to elude him. One day, he overheard the powerful story of a God who came to this world to save him. Krishnan tells his story…
“TWR India’s Malayalam broadcast, Jeeva Sandesham (Thru The Bible), brings blessings to us each morning. It strengthens our spiritual life and revives us. During times of trouble, it lifts us up with the living word of God. It is like a window through which we can enjoy blessings from God.
I was born and brought up in a different faith, and was accustomed to worshiping various deities. Yet I was unhappy. I did not believe in the rituals I performed. Deep down I felt there was a God who had made the universe but I had yet to find Him.
In the meantime, I was disturbed as I felt that peace and happiness eluded me. I had no purpose in life. I was anxious and eager to find it and find out if there was indeed a true God.
I always thought that there was some supernatural power that created us and the universe. To my surprise, I realized later that it was not some magical supernatural power, but a God who also came to this world as a man to save us.
In my life before knowing God, I got married to a girl from a similar religious background, and we went through all the traditional rituals. But my marriage was not a happy one and this caused me to be both irritated and dissatisfied.
Later, I came to know that there is a God who loves me and does not want me to perish. His ways are different and we are often unaware of how he works behind the scenes.
There was a Christian family living near us. They listen to your radio program every morning. One night, I was restless and disturbed as usual. Early the next morning, in my sleep deprived state, I heard a voice on the radio. The words, “Are you restless?” seemed to address me.
I then got out of bed and went outside, from where I listened to the complete program. The message that day was about how you can have love and happiness through Jesus Christ. The message touched my heart. The next day I went over to the Christian neighbor’s house and asked for details of the program.
After listening to the program for several days, I understood that God came down to earth as an ordinary man to take away our sins and grant us abundant life by dying on the cross of Calvary. The program changed me completely – that was the impact of it as I gave my life to Jesus. When I told my wife about it, she too listened and accepted Jesus Christ as her personal Savior.
From then onwards our life changed. We now have joy, happiness and peace in our family. I have learnt to be dependent on God and this is because of Jeeva Sandesham. This program has saved my family which now lives according to His Word.
Your program gives us spiritual nourishment and helps us walk with the Lord. It helps us lead a holy life by enabling us to enjoy a loving relationship with our Savior Jesus Christ.”
Radio reaches people where no other media can go, and God is able to use it to reach those who are at their lowest points. To join us in reaching families like Krishnan’s, we ask that you prayerfully consider giving to the broadcast of programs in India.
