“I Can Only Imagine” was written by Bart Millard, the lead singer of the group MercyMe.
The song is the best-selling Christian single of all time.
The story behind the song is about Millard’s relationship with his father, Dennis Quaid, who was abusive to him and his mother.
The song speaks to the power of forgiveness. When we forgive those who have hurt us, it sets us free and propels us into our destiny.
Always remember that hurt people hurt people. When we walk in freedom, we are then able to minister to others. The story of this song is a great testimony of that.
A gripping reminder of the power of forgiveness.
No one is ever too far from God’s love—or from an eternal home in Heaven.
