I wake so often through the night, aches and pains of age to cause me to toss and turn. I always use this time to speak to my Lord, to speak of or think of Him as He sends me back into my slumber.
Last night the chorus of I Can Only Imagine to be upon my heart every time.
“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 you face is before me
I can only imagine
I can only imagine”
A little gift from my Abba.
I can only imagine,
But oh how I can!
He and I to commune through these words.
I to feel His presence so strongly.
His eyes to lock upon mine as ours meet.
Full of tenderness and mercy
How strong His arms are that hold me
We didn’t need words
His touch said it all
His gaze heals it all
I can imagine
And in that imagining my heart heals
In that imagining He comes to me
It is not imagining at all
It is the sweet being with my Jesus
Here and now
*I Can Only Imagine, lyrics by Mercy Me
