till we have faces

Today's readings: 2 Chron 4:1-6:11, Rom 7:1-13, Psalm 17:1-15, Proverbs 19:22-23

When I awake, I will see You face to face, and be satisfied.

That phrase jumped off the page at me today. After I die, when I awake again in that new morning, I will see You face to face. And I will be satisfied.

These are wonderful words. We will see Him face to face, not through a glass darkly. We will be satisfied, not restless until they rest in Him. We will see the object of our deepest longing and desires... the One that we have been looking for all of our lives, even without ever completely realizing it.

We will leave "I still haven't found what I'm looking for" behind us at long last, and wander the streets that have no name with the One who never gets lost, who is our ultimate destination.

God, I long to see your face. Please help me grow into my own face, so I can meet you with one when the time comes.

Just to be satisfied by being face to face with Him is unimaginable.
