‘Imagine’

Walking around a lake the other day I was fascinated looking at the various shapes32ADD886-2DB7-4FD2-9FE4-ECFEF5FA1407 made  by the green algae that had gathered in various areas – some of them reminded me of small islands – of pictures taken from a plane – looking down onto a green world.

I just love imagination!

I’m sure many of you have looked at the clouds in the sky – as I have – and still do – and imagined the different animals – faces – people etc in the shapes those clouds have made.257FF05A-9500-4050-A34E-A07368121CBE

The trunks and bark of trees often feed my 1686592A-AB3E-4C82-AFE0-00CE52BD4927imagination too – with their shapes  – knots – grooves etc.

We use our imagination in all sorts of ways.

We may imagine what life would have been like if we had been born in different circumstances – in a different country – or – maybe we imagine ourselves in the future – imagine our children – grandchildren – growing up.

In all my imaginations throughout the years – one thing I’ve come to realise is that I can never understand – or even truly imagine – the God that I have loved and followed – and surely – that’s what faith is all about. It’s not about ‘understanding’ – but believing in what I cannot truly see – maybe imagine – maybe get a glimpse- but not fully know.

I love the words of this song – ‘I can only imagine’ –

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 Your face is before me

I can only imagine

 

 

Surrounded by Your glory

 What will my heart feel

Will I dance for You Jesus

Or in awe of You be stll

Will I stand in Your presence

Or to my knees will I fall

Will I sing hallelujah

Will I be able to speak at all

I can only imagine

I can only imagine

When I hear it – or sing it – it fills me with wonder and awe – that one day – I will see Him – be by His side – but how that will be – what that will be like – I can only imagine.
