Five Minute Friday - 6/1/12 - See


 It's FRIDAY! That means it's time for another Five Minute Friday where, we, as our hostess and inspiration, The Gypsy Mama, puts it, write "For only five short, bold, beautiful minutes. Unscripted and unedited. We just write without worrying if it’s just right or not."


Want to join us? Then be sure and visit The Gypsy Mama today! 
Now...for today's assignment....

Go!

 The word for today is 'see' and my first thought was...the thing I want to see most is...Jesus! 

First to mind comes the words to the old hymn O I Want To See Him...
  
As I journey through the land, singing as I go,
Pointing souls to Calvary—to the crimson flow,
Many arrows pierce my soul from without, within;
But my Lord leads me on, thro’ Him I must win.


Refrain

O I want to see Him, look upon His face,
There to sing forever of His saving grace;
On the streets of glory let me lift my voice,
Cares all past, home at last, ever to rejoice.


When in service for my Lord dark may be the night,
But I’ll cling more close to Him, He will give me light;
Satan’s snares may vex my soul, turn my tho’ts aside;
But my Lord goes ahead, leads whate’er betide.


Refrain

When in valleys low I look tow’rd the mountain height,
And behold my Savior there, leading in the fight,
With a tender hand outstretched tow’rd the valley low,
Guiding me, I can see, as I onward go.


Refrain

When before me billows rise form the mighty deep,
Then my Lord directs my bark; He doth safely keep,
And He leads me gently on thro’ this world below;
He’s a real Friend to me, O I love Him so.


Refrain
Then, of course, I immediately think of the words to the chorus of What A Day That Will Be...

What a day that will be when my Jesus I shall see,
And I look upon his face,
The One who saved me by his grace;
When he takes me by the hand,
And leads me through the Promised Land,
What a day, glorious day that will be.
The Bible tells us that the day is coming when "...every eye shall see him..." (Revelation 1:7), that "...every knee..." shall bow to Him (Philippians 2:10), and that "...every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord..." (Philippians 2:11). 
That includes you. Do you know Him? When that day comes will He know you
"Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity (Matthew 7:21-23). 
If you don't know Jesus today and would like to, or if you do know Him and you just need someone to pray with you, or for you, in a specific area, please, feel free to e-mail me privately at proverbs31heart@yahoo.com. I would be more than happy to help you in whatever way I can. Please put PRAYER on the subject line so I don't miss it. 

And have a blessed day!

All My Love,
~Rebecca
