Listeners sound off sharing their favorite song and why.
Debbie: “Broken Together” is my all-time favorite song. It was the song that helped my daughter and son-in-law realize that with God everything is possible, even fixing a broken marriage.
Vicki: I love the song “Glorious Day” by Casting Crowns, because the lyrics are so true. My dad died suddenly of a massive heart attack and so we had no closure, no goodbye with him. My mom chose this song to be played at his funeral. The words helped me to connect what I had just lost here on earth, my earthly father, with where his soul had gone and where I would one day be reunited with him. During my dad’s funeral, when the song started playing – unplanned of course by us, but so moved by the Holy Spirit – my mom, sister, and I began to sing with this song! It was so powerful in that moment. It was a testimony to our belief, all summed up in the words of the song. That even though there is pain with death, it is so much more glorious after we leave this earth. My favorite words in this song are “one day He’s coming, Oh glorious day!” What a glorious day it will be!
Janet: The most meaningful song to me right now is “Losing” by Tenth Avenue North. This song helped me through a difficult time in my life when my close family members chose to judge me. I’m a nurse, and I chose to relieve a younger nurse on Christmas Day by working her shift. We serve patients with multiple physical and mental challenges, many who have no family involved in their care. So I wasn’t at my family’s gathering at noon, but joined them at 2:30 pm. Because I was late, I was shunned by my mother and my siblings for 5 years. I could have been bitter and resentful but I couldn’t. I kept praying “Oh Father won’t you forgive them, they don’t know what they are doing.”
Sara: “Praise You in This Storm” by Casting Crowns is my favorite song. That was my anthem when our son was fighting for his life in the NICU. God has richly blessed us, and our son is 7 years old now and the light of our lives!
Deb: Right now, my favorite song is Zach Williams’ “Fear Is a Liar”. I have battled self- criticism for a lifetime, which got significantly worse when my husband of 20 years walked out on our marriage. This song reminds me where those lies and fears come from, and that I need to turn to the Lord and His Word for the truth!
