Imagining Peace in Michigan

MercyMe’s hit song “I Can Only Imagine” has been a favorite song of countless people since it debuted in 1999. The song gained widespread popularity not only on Christian stations, but also secular stations. In 2018, a film about Bart Millard’s life was released, detailing the story behind the epic single. Last month, however, this song and your Life 90.5 were a tremendous blessing to a listener and her family.

Listener Ruth sent in a message recently:

I wanted to share a story of how your station helped me and my mom through losing my dad. My dad was put into hospice July 8th back in my home state of Michigan. As anyone knows, you have good days and bad with loved ones as they begin their journey home. Well my dad was having a bad day so I pulled up your online channel and MercyMe’s “I Can Only Imagine” was playing. I put my phone next to my Dad and slowly you could see him relax and even smile. We kept the station playing for over an hour and through that time my dad slept peacefully. He passed away on July 14th to the sound of MercyMe’s original version of “I Can Only Imagine” playing. I want to say how thankful I am you are online.

What an incredible story of how God is using your Life 90.5 to bring peace that passes all understanding to listeners no matter where they are. This hope in Ruth’s time of need was possible because of you. Your financial support to Life 90.5 means that you were the ones helping to comfort them when it mattered most. Thank you for being part of what God is doing!
