I Can Only Imagine


Yesterday I was listening to the radio in my car. Mercy Me's "I Can Only Imagine" came on. I have heard it a million times and really like the song, but tears streamed down my face as it ministered to me in a different way this time.

I listen to the song and imagine what it will be like in heaven....standing before the Lord. Wow. What a glorious moment! I can only imagine and it WILL be incredible. But what about today? I was overwhelmed with the awe that Jesus is with me here.....NOW....on earth. Every day. Every moment. Am I living my life now in awe of His presence? Am I living with the reality that I am surrounded by His glory? Do I allow His presence to penetrate and change the way I think, talk, and feel? Does it change the things I do, the way I interact with others, the places I go, and everything I do?

Today, I will not only imagine what it WILL be like, but I will cherish what it IS like and allow it to transform me.

I can only imagine
What it will be like
When I walk
By Your side
I can only imagine
What my eyes will see
When Your face
Is before me
I can only imagine

{Chorus}:
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
Will I sing hallelujah, will I be able to speak at all
I can only imagine

I can only imagine
When that day comes
And I find myself
Standing in the Son
I can only imagine
When all I will do
Is forever
Forever worship You
I can only imagine

Thanks for sharing this. You're so right about cherishing every moment we have in His presence NOW. As believers we should revel in His presence every moment. We should wake up each morning with Christ-confidence and a victorious spirit. Jesus has conquered sin and death! Hallelujah!
