Movie Monday - I Can Only Imagine
I'd like to dedicate this blog to the Flooren Family, and anyone else who was close to Michelle.
On Saturday while I was at the conference we were singing a song and I was just singing and (unfortunately) not paying attention to what the song was saying since I was doing the media. As I sang the words: "when we all get to heaven what a day of rejoicing we will be, when we all see Jesus..." (you know the rest). All the sudden it hit me...Michelle is there RIGHT NOW. (I mean I knew that already). And from what I hear her funeral was a huge celebration of that (I wasn't able to get the time off work).
But suddenly the AWESOMENESS of that, the fact that I can't even fathom what JOY she is experiencing. A perfect, sinless, painless place that I've heard of since I was in sunday school. I don't think I'd ever thought of it this way before. As in she is in the PRESENCE (the VERY PRESENCE) of our HOLY FATHER. WOW, WOW!!!
I tried to remember the time I'd felt the closest to God. It was probably a concert in Michigan in a stadium with 25000 people and the lights almost dark and the Newboys, with Jeremy Camp. All of them sitting on stools doing a quiet acoustic worship time. It is going to be BIGGER and BETTER then that. WOW I just can't imagine what it will be like to be IN HEAVEN! Forever, FOREVER!!! WOW!!!
And for a moment I was a bit jealous of Michelle. I really can't wait!!!
