~Then Sings My Soul Saturday~I Can Only Imagine



Ephesians 3:18-19
"And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God."

The above is a picture of my Dad. It is perfect for this video and song as it is in a frame. My Dad went to be with Jesus on September 16, 2000. He is greatly missed. He, along with other family will be there to greet us.

1John 5:11 ~ "This is what God told us: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son."

Revelations 21:4 ~ "He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death, sadness, crying, or pain, because all the old ways are gone."

This is one of the verses I especially like "no more death, sadness, crying or pain." This world is full of all this. Yet do we long to stay here because of the unknown?

Romans 6:23 ~"The payment for sin is death. But God gives us the free gift of life forever in Christ Jesus our Lord."

John 14:2-3 ~ "There are many rooms in my Father's house; I would not tell you this if it were not true. I am going there to prepare a place for you. After I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me so that you may be where I am."

DO YOU KNOW ANYONE WHO IS NOT PREPARED TO GO TO HEAVEN?

I love this song...I can't hear it without longing for heaven...longing to be with Jesus!

Oh wow. What a song. I've never seen the video that goes with it - very emotional. Fortunately, my family members know Jesus. I have some neighbors and old friends that aren't prepared for heaven.

Praise the Lord for heavenly reunions! This song sparks an urgency to share Jesus with those that may not know Him....

Blessings to you!

This is one of my all time favorite songs. My little 3 year old has it memorized! That's the way I like to use my imagination.

I love this song, we played it at my Aunt's funeral and it gives me chills ever since.

I'm sorry to hear about your sister, I will be praying for her. God be with you.

Every time I hear this song, I think of a friend of mine from church who also lost her dad a couple years ago. It's a great song.

This song is GREAT! There was a dear member at our church who would walk the ailes at our church and would sing this song. He had cancer and he is now healed living with our Saviour. When I hear this song I think of him.

My BFF Paula and I used to listen to this song over and over when she was sick. Now when I listen to it, I think "she is there, she doesn't have to imagine anymore". Makes me even more anxious to get there too.
Love this song!
Thank you

Hey Cheryl,

Oh, that song will always been one of my top favorites. It brings to much comfort, so much HOPE!

Praise God for the promises we have of what our lives will be like on the other side of the river.

I'm praying EXTRA hard for this coming week, I have not forgot!

Blessings♥

This is a great song!

Cheryl...I CAN ONLY IMAGINE...how glorious your dad, my dad, my mom, my brother...and other "family" there to greet us and they are sitting at the Throne of Jesus!

All these scriptures brings us the HOPE we share in Christ Jesus! I can't imagine how people live without Him! I've encountered so many...living for themselves...
living day to day...living without hope of eternity...and instead of getting better through so many missionaries, I believe right in our own nation...it is "sinking"
sand for many...being led astray!

Bless you for the most uplifting message both here and with your comments to me...(hugs) to Ripley!

Cheryl, I absolutely love this song! It makes me think of my grandfather that passed away several years ago. I can just see him sitting at the feet of Jesus lifting his voice in songs of praise.

Have a great weekend!

Andrea said...

I love this song too - when you sit and listen to it, it makes you imagine and know that it will be sooo much more!
