My Favorite Christian Song

I don’t usually post twice in one day but I couldn’t pass up this weeks’ challenge from a Christian blog Google+ group that I belong to. My favorite contemporary Christian song is Matt Maher’s ‘Hold Us Together’ Such powerful lyrics and such a simple truth!

Earlier today, I blogged the birth story of my daughter, Baby A. You can read it here. This song had such a powerful impact on my labor/delivery!!

We chose to have a natural birth and things were slow going. We had already been to the birth center once that day and had been sent home. I was exhausted and was physically, emotionally, spiritually spent. I was torn between my fatigue and my excitement that Aymen Grace would be here sooner or later. It seemed like it was going to be later though.

My husband, Lee, & I were sitting in the car in the parking lot of the birth center and I was praying through each contraction. “Lord, get me through this” “Lord, bring her here now!” “Lord, I need you.” Lee was encouraging me and telling me that we needed to get out of the car and go inside before she could be born. I didn’t want to move though. What if they sent us home again? Could I really face that disappointment? Did I really think I was strong enough to do this?

Then ‘Hold Us Together’ came on the radio. Two of my dear friends were standing beside the car and they started singing along. Before I knew it, I was singing between contractions. And then God did something that I’ll never forget. As the lyrics “This is the first day of the rest of your life” came on, I burst into tears because I felt the Holy Spirit moving me, giving me strength to get out of the car. This was the push I needed!! And it came straight from the Lord.

This song is so meaningful to our family and it’s become Baby A’s theme song (yes, she is so awesome that she has her own them music, ha!!)

What is your favorite Christian song and why? Tell me in the comments!



I liked the song, and your personal story about it really made it special. I hope Aymen Grace will always identify with it and remember her own story.

I love listening to Christian songs, and I instantly fell in love with this song right on the first time I heard it! I find it very inspiring; it reminds us that it’s not the worldly things that will always fix things, but the love that we have for each other. Indeed, love will hold us together!
