from me to you:

Words are not enough to say how many blessings we receive from the Lord each day [Just the fact that you landed on this page is already a huge blessing!]. It is for this reason that How Blessed and Loved I Am exists - to tell, in words, in pictures, in music, in videos, how every smile, every laugh, every frown, every tear, every shout, and every jump are very much part of God's shower of graces.

Join us in sharing the little microscopic blessings we receive each day from Him, our everlasting and ever-loving Father!^^

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

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 still
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

I can only imagine
When that day comes
And I find myself
Standing in the Son

I can only imagine
When all I will do
Is forever
Forever worship You
I can only imagine

I can only imagine

This song is just so powerful to me. First heard it when I went to my friend's church in Caloocan. That time the band was playing full force I could barely hear the words. I just heard "I can only imagine" and the words just got stuck in my mind, literally, for a while. The people were singing, shouting, lifting their hands up. Some were even on their knees. I've never seen such powerful worship.

As I prayed last night, I was at a loss for words. I wanted to tell God how great and majestic He is in my life, how He has shown His grace and mercy to me, but I just couldn't get the right words to say. It seemed that even "Hallelujah" and "I love you, Lord" weren't enough. I wanted to say something else - something that would explain how I truly feel whenever I remember that He created me and even died for me without asking for anything. He's been so wise, so extraordinary, so indescribable. Having planned this whole universe up to the most intricate detail of our human bodies, only God can do the utmost expression of love which is sacrificing Himself for His creations.

The least I can do is to love Him back because nothing and no one in this world can even compare to Him. But come to think of it, loving Him back is just not enough for all the glorious things He has done.

Lord, my Master and Creator, for all the things You've done for me, I haven't been so thankful. I have neglected you most of the time. I have hurt you in so many ways, yet you continue to love me as You always have. I can never understand, Lord, the depth of Your love and the extent of Your grace and mercy for me. Forgive me for all those times. I never want to hurt You again.:sorry:


Smiles,

Yeah. But maybe that's what his mother felt as she rose up to heaven.^^
