Have you seen the movie,”I Can Only Imagine”? It’s been out a few days and already exceeded expectations. Christian faith based movies need to be attended, and this one will be. Although I haven’t seen the movie, it is affecting me. This is because the ladies of Buried Treasures Home (https://www.buriedtreasureshome.com)were taken to it over the weekend by one of our volunteers.
The volunteer shared that she felt they were impacted by the movie. Her observation caused me to do some research over the weekend. My findings on YouTube have likely had a similar impact on me as the movie did on them. So much so, I decided that today I’d share some of my research with the ladies.
Do you know about the song that Dennis Quaid wrote 25 years ago? I didn’t know Dennis was a musician! One interview I saw, he indicated that he couldn’t finish the song at the time, but since being part of the movie cast, he found the inspiration to complete the song. The title of his song is “On My Way to Heaven.”
The title of the movie had its own song that was a hit for years and still is. I wonder once Dennis Quaid’s song is discovered what impact it will have on this world?
Based on my small, test audience with the ladies of Buried Treasures Home today, I predict the song definitely has a long future. Watching Dennis Quaid on video sing his own song touched a tender spot in all of us.
Just like the movie, it is a song of hope because of Redemption that only comes through Jesus. I believe it reminded the ladies that since they are all now “in Christ”, they too, are on their way to Heaven.
For a moment, it made the journey here on earth a bit lighter. For a Monday, here on planet earth, it’s the best news.
Enjoy the song here: On My Way To Heaven
