The other day, David and I were blessed with a break to have a little bit of time together and squeeze in a date. First lunch, then the movie theater.
We went to see “I Can Only Imagine.”
I highly recommend this movie to any and all who want to see it. It is family-friendly but also an awesome, inspiring testimony of what Bart Millard went through and the events leading up to him writing the #1 Christian hit, still to this day.
With that being said, I’m not going to spoil the details of the movie for anyone who hasn’t seen it. What I will say is when you listen to the song you could never tie the events leading up to it with the lyrics until you watch the movie and know the whole story.
As I sat, crying in the movie theater, the song became more real to me.
Yes, the inspiring story of the man that wrote the song brought tears to my eyes, but so did the song itself.
So many times we listen to songs and sing along because we like the music or the melody. Often times we don’t take time to truly listen and hear the lyrics.
“Surrounded by Your glory, what will my heart feel? Will I dance for You, Jesus, or in awe of You be still? Will I stand in Your presence it’ll to my knees will I fall? Will I sing hallelujah, will I be able to speak at all? I can only imagine. Yeah. I can only imagine. ”
I can only imagine.
I can’t wait.
In the midst of my struggles. In the midst of my fears. Through it all, He is always here!!
I can’t wait until that glorious day when I finally meet my Maker. My Savior. My King. Face to face!
I’m excited. Aren’t you? I can only imagine the excitement and joy that will surround us when we enter those pearly gates!
Such a powerful song.
Such a powerful movie.
Such a powerful testimony.
I can’t wait until that day. If you’re not ready, you need to get ready!
Listen to the song and take in the lyrics. I also encourage you to watch the movie.
