I still remember the first time I heard the song “I Can Only Imagine” by Mercy Me. What a profound song! It really made me think about what heaven must be like and how I might respond to Jesus when I first get there and see him face to face. Then, several years later, when I lost my best friend to cancer, the song had a whole new meaning to me as I imagined my friend dancing for Jesus, happy, healthy, and whole again.
Surrounded by You 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 I heard that they were making a movie on the life of Bart Millard (Mercy Me’s lead singer) and that it would be sharing the story that inspired the song, I couldn’t wait! And now, here we are, just a few days from the March 16th, the day that “I Can Only Imagine” the Movie, makes it debut in theaters! Yay!
About “I Can Only Imagine”
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.
