Having sought Him
And accepting his grace,
I now say my deepest desire
Is to behold His face.
Before posting this I ask myself about the truth of this statement. I am convinced that I am not just being “pious” in this desire. There are other desires that I have. I desire intensely that my precious loved ones be healed of cancer. I desire deeply that my family to many generations live peacefully and love Jesus. I desire greatly that my family have the basic necessities of life. But for myself there is no greater desire than to sense the presence of my Savior day by day and to live with him face to face eternally. ……………Meanwhile, I want my husband to get my car fixed, and I want to have a successful garage sale, and I want to lose some weight! 😀
