“As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.”
Psalms 17:15 KJV
Frances Jane Crosby wrote the hymn “My Savior First of All”. I love these words. “When my life work is ended, and I cross the swelling tide, When the bright and glorious morning I shall see; I shall know my Redeemer when I reach the other side, And His smile will be the first to welcome me.”
What a joyous and happy day it will be when we see our Saviour smiling at us. Think about it. We will be with Jesus for all eternity. There will be no more death, no more crying, no more hatred and war and no more running to hide from people wanting to beat us and hurt us.
Someone said “When I was growing up, I was afraid of my dad and I had to run and hide from him when he was drunk because he would beat me”. We have a tender loving compassionate Heavenly Father Who loves us unconditionally and we never have to be afraid of Him or run and hide from Him.
Heavenly Father, what a precious loving Father You are. Thank You for loving us unconditionally. It is a healing balm to our weary battle scarred heart to know we never have to be afraid of You. I pray You will comfort and encourage everyone who is hurting and discouraged. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
