“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 one of my favorite hymns “My Savior First of All”. “Oh, the soul thrilling rapture when I view His blessèd face, And the luster of His kindly beaming eye; How my full heart will praise Him for the mercy, love and grace, That prepare for me a mansion in the sky.”
We are going to see Jesus face to face. Are you shouting with joy and happiness? We are going to have the privilege of seeing our precious Saviour face to face. Carrie Elizabeth Ellis Breck wrote another one of my favorite hymns “Face to Face with Christ, My Savior”. I love the words in this beautiful hymn.
I believe she wrote this beautiful hymn from her heart. “Face to face—oh, blissful moment! Face to face—to see and know; Face to face with my Redeemer, Jesus Christ Who loves me so.” How I long to see my Saviour. O how I love Jesus. He is the joy of my heart, the reason I’m living and the reason I get out of bed.
Heavenly Father, we praise You and thank You for giving Your beloved Son to die on the cross for our sins so we may have the privilege of being saved and living in Heaven. Thank You, dear Father, for being a Father Who never curses us or hits us. I love You, dear Father. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
