I remember the day that the song ‘I Can Only Imagine’ hit the radios. Mercy Me was belting it out and I fell to my knees in worship to God as the tears poured down my face. This song flooded my soul and spoke volumes to me. I knew it would be around for a very long time. And now — the movie and meaning behind the song hit the theaters March 16. I cannot wait to go and watch some of my favorite actors show me why this song was written.
This song has held a special meaning in my heart for many years. When I am down and struggling, I can hear it and once again, it soothes my aching soul.
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 or to my knees will I fall?
If you have never heard the song before, I urge you to turn on the video below and listen to the words and let it speak to your hurting soul.
About I Can Only Imagine
It’s the song that brings ultimate hope to so many … often in the midst of life’s most challenging moments. Amazingly, the song was written in mere minutes by MercyMe lead singer Bart Millard. In reality, those lyrics took a lifetime to craft.
Although he found faith at a young age, life wasn’t easy for Bart. He leaned into an active imagination and his love of music as escapes from a troubled home life. As he grew older, Bart turned to football in hopes of somehow connecting with his abusive father. But a career-ending injury—combined with the vision of a teacher who saw unlimited potential—set Bart on a musical pathway.
Chasing a dream while running from broken relationships with father and Shannon, his childhood sweetheart, Bart hits the road on an old, decrepit tour bus with his new band MercyMe—named for his grandmother’s favorite expression. With the guidance of a grizzled music-industry insider, the band begins a journey none of them could ever have imagined.
I CAN ONLY IMAGINE stars J. Michael Finley, Madeline Carroll, Trace Adkins, Priscilla C. Shirer, with Cloris Leachman and Dennis Quaid.
