If you ask any of my family members they will quickly tell you that my favorite Christian song is "I Can Only Imagine." This song really touched my heart the first time I heard it and I cannot hear it enough. The song really asks all the things I have wondered about. How will I act the first time I see Jesus? What will I do? Say? Have you ever thought about it?
When I found out that Bart Millard of MercyMe wrote "I Can Only Imagine" in just minutes, I was stunned. It is so beautiful and thought provoking. Now it has become a movie. The movie will be in theaters on March 16th and I cannot wait! You can learn more about the movie and even buy tickets by clicking here!
About the movie:
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.
I have seen several clips and the trailer for this movie and I am so excited to go see it! The cast seems to blend well together and when you add Trace Adkins to the mix, you have my attention.
