Your Move. Your Stories.
I was a fifth-generation, die-hard SDA until Feb, 2020 when the Lord saw me completely out of that mixed up worldview. It seems I’ve had to relearn everything. So much so that I have been tempted to leave the Biblical worldview all together. Your sermons have really helped uplift me when faith seemed to run low! Thank you for following Jesus as you do!
Amen! As someone who is in the battle of addiction and recovery, I know I’m not doing any of this on my own. I have so many that deserve my gratitude, most importantly THE ONE who makes any of the possible. Thank you Jesus for giving me the chance to move forward. Thank you Andy for bringing his message to me, a foreigner.
Thank you for these (Your Move) podcasts. I’m 26 years old – I’ve grown up in the church all my life and as most do – have had my spiritual setbacks and beef with religion/the church. This podcast has given me a new hope and relationship with God (esp through the pandemic) and I’m thankful for everything you’re doing. I share these podcasts with friends in my corner that don’t know God because Andy makes it so simple. And helps approach our challenging culture these days.
I walked away from God after accepting Him as my Lord, and accepted His Son rose from the tomb that hundreds witnessed. After 15 years of addiction I crumbled. Today, I am back in the fold with 26 years of recovery. Thank you Andy, for helping me understand that simplicity, and the power of the resurrection, is my focus. Love one another. THATS IT!!
I’m not church-going, have my reasons. But I love your lectures after SNL. I’ve struggled with the evangelical movement in it’s current form for a long time. It’s so refreshing to have someone like yourself that really seems more committed to the gospel than their own ministry.Thanks for taking the timeslot you do. I never walked away from the Lord, but these lectures have rekindled a passion for God’s own heart.
Your talk on What Happy Couples Know Part 1 has changed my life for the good more than almost any sermon I have ever heard. I am applying it to my marriage relationship, my relationship with my grown children, my relationship with my other relatives, and, most importantly, to my relationship with God about my life. I didn’t realize how much I was carrying around the “you owe me” belief and how much I had handed my hopes/desires box to others (including God) as an expectation burden. I had burdened my wife and God with the responsibility for making me happy and was under-appreciating (lack of real gratefulness) for most of my blessings provided by them. I was appreciative on the surface and somewhat grateful — but I didn’t realize how much I was holding against them based on “you owe me” deep-seated subconscious thinking. Thank you for this message!!!
Hello! I just wanted to reach out and let you guys know that I shared your challenge you offered during your sermon, money talks part 2 to my small group. Surprisingly, we had a huge response! So far, 6 of us have committed to giving an “OOFDUH” percentage of our income. It doesn’t stop there. Each of us have reached out to our friends, family, and significant others to also join in on the challenge. My mother and step father, who really have not had consistent work over the previous year and a half or so, have also offered up their trust and faith to the Lord, and committed to the challenge as well. It’s so amazing to see the Holy Spirit and Jesus Christ in action, all this distance apart from your church.
I was at the end of my understanding of were to turn and what to do. I started listening To Andy because someone had sent me the link years before. It’s nothing short of Gods hand giving me direction to renew my faith and give me direction in a way only Andy has been able to teach. I have found myself abiding in God for the first time in my life. I truly feel like my life has been saved from poor choices. Thank you all for taking the time to put such a powerful tool at my fingertips.
I’m in my 30’s now (time sure does fly!) and I have struggled for as long as I can remember with a faith and relationship with God that didn’t look like or sound like those of the Christian’s around me. In fact, it looked so different and I experience God so differently than others that I knew that I haven’t called myself a Christian for well over a decade. Someone shared your new years 2021 themed podcast with me this year and I’ve been listening to a few sermons a week on the Your Move podcast since then. This week I started the “Who Needs God?” Series and part 3 brought me to unexpected, totally out of nowhere tears while driving to the gym. For the first time in my whole life someone who teaches about God and Christianity taught about how I experience Christianity and God! For the first time having questions wasn’t evidence of a lack of faith or love for God! Words I have said in prayer out of uncertainty have come out of your mouth during your podcasts with conviction and Biblical support attached! I cannot adequately express to you how important and faith enhancing your teaching has been for me. Thank you for tackling the hard topics, asking the hard questions, and remaining inquisitive and inclusive of questions in your own journey.
This is amazing. I finally understand why God is so important to allow into your life. Thank You. I was blind. Thank you so much.
At one point I became discouraged with the whole idea of church and faith. However, I came across Your Move with Andy Stanley in December 2014, and I now have a new perspective on how faith and trusting God can change your life.
I have been going through a time of questioning if God has forgotten about me. Your message cut through me at a time when I needed it. Thank you for being on TV. You have reminded me that God is still there.
I started watching your show because I was curious about reconnecting with God. Then I watched the next week, and the next week, and the next. My life is improving a great deal, and I have even reconnected with my children. I cannot begin to describe what this means to me.
I’m 29 and I’ve struggled with my age and comparing myself to the people around me. I’ve dated a little…but I have this ex-neighbor friend. I had fallen asleep during SNL and he texted me as the show was going off and woke me up. He wanted me to visit in the middle of the night, which I’ve done before. I saw your message coming on and have been watching/recording it since. I did “ignore” him that night and I’m working on “ignoring” him. He keeps me from being the person I want to be and he’s a comparison trap in my life. I truly believe that text was sent at that time so I’d hear it and wake up to hear your message. I am hooked! Thank you!
I was recently divorced, and feelings of despair and fear drove me into a deep depression. During that time, I found Your Move and began watching and re-watching each episode. I learned to live in the present, not the past, and I learned how to forgive instead of feeling angry. Andy is a great teacher.
I am “starting over,” so when I saw what the new Your Move series was about, I was stunned and thrilled. It couldn’t have been more timely. I have been through a five-year series of painful, life-shattering events—personally, professionally, and physically. It wasn’t until I hit rock bottom, lost everything, and had nowhere to go, that I realized I wasn’t qualified to manage my own life. God had been there all along, watching over me. I have been given a second chance. I do not want to slip back into my old behavior, so I will be glued to the Starting Over series!
I found Your Move one morning a few weeks ago on TV. I have recently started my recovery for alcoholism and your show is truly helping me reestablish a relationship with God. As I move forward, Your Move will be helping me along the way. Thank you!
Andy’s TV show has changed my life. As a former atheist, I couldn’t have scripted the life changes that God led me to through Your Move.
I’ve made so many poor decisions throughout my life and feel like there’s been no progress. Now I think, What story of my life am I writing? before I make a move. This program has helped me in practical ways and biblical knowledge without being stuck in a church, and I love that it’s on regular TV.
All my life, I have heard God cares for me; however, there was always a “but.” God cares, but you have to do better…God cares, but not as much as you need him to. After listening to Your Move, I now know unequivocally that God knows me and my needs and he truly cares for me.
Last Saturday night, I stumbled across what I thought was a marriage counseling show, Staying In Love. Interesting timing as my husband was away for work and we’d been having some real difficulties. Andy’s messages really spoke to me, and I’ve been listening to his podcast and/or recording the TV shows ever since. I wasn’t a “church person” growing up, but I can easily identify with what he’s saying. I do believe that listening to Andy improved my life and my marriage.
Saturday, I put myself in a slightly sketchy situation by being out too late with someone I knew I shouldn’t be out with. Long story short, we were in this bar listening to a band and, sure enough, Andy’s Guardrails series comes up on all twenty TVs at 1 a.m. throughout the entire bar. What a wake-up call.
After my husband left me for another woman and, ultimately, filed for divorce, to say I was devastated was an understatement. Starting Over gave me the tools I needed to forgive my ex-husband and release my feelings of hurt and bitterness. This series is so practical, and it changed my life!
I’m 21 years old, and I have always struggled with knowing what to do next. Listening to Andy ask, “What is the wise thing to do?” was like a magic formula. Now I always ask myself this question before making ANY decisions.
About two years ago, I started listening to the Your Move podcast, and I have never stopped. Listening to Andy’s messages has truly changed my life and helped me to make better decisions. I am eternally grateful for the impact that Andy and Your Move have had on my life.
