Giving Thanks for stories of God changing lives for good

‘I will give thanks to you Lord, with all my heart. I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.’ Psalm 9:1


When we think about our lives, we can probably all think of God’s blessings.  Whether it’s for the food we eat, our loved ones, or the practical ways He looks after us; but how often do we remember to say ‘thank you’ to God?  When we receive, we need to give back in praise, thankfulness and adoration.

Even when we feel like we’ve got nothing to be thankful for, we can still thank God for everything He’s done for us so far, and for the promise of eternal life. That’s enough to be thankful for, for a lifetime.

The videos below show amazing stories of people who, despite being in a difficult time, allowed God to use them for good. 

‘Those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength’ (Isaiah 40:31)

At UCB, we are thankful to God and also to each one of our readers, listeners and viewers who take the time to pray for our ministry, and also to give generously.  With God’s direction and your support, together we can help more people draw closer to God and be thankful for all He provides.

2018 014 Paul Belton Word For Today Testimony

The Lord had said “Paul, it’s my plan, I just want you to be obedient” and it’s wonderful and it’s been transformational in my life…and I’m just going to keep listening.’

Paul was confused about what God wanted from him, until he felt God speak to him about his heart for the homeless and his desire to bring more people to know the Lord. He did a remarkable thing and set out to feed the homeless who “are physically hungry…but this paved the way to talk to people about spiritual food”.

Paul gave out Bibles along with a copy of the UCB Word for Today because he’s “always found it to be really inspired wisdom…God inspired wisdom”.

Beccy had a difficult start in life. There were things she shouldn’t have witnessed or experienced which resulted in a spiralling trauma that led her to self-harm: “I remember thinking ‘I need to control something, I can’t control anything around me right now’.”

However, God never left her, and soon revealed a plan for her life: to help other people recover from trauma and addiction. She says, “The comfort that you’ve received from God is the comfort that you will give.”

Saved from self-harm and given a new purpose - Beccy Cox

‘I remember thinking…‘I can’t control anything around me right now’…[But] going back to it I could see what He’d done…The whole way through I knew He was there.’
