Will I Know Him?

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

“As I was viewing and appreciating the lovely pictures that
many artists have portrayed as Jesus, the thought crossed my mind…
we are programmed to see JESUS through the eyes of others…
will we KNOW Him ~~~when we see HIM face to face?
~ Linda Sandlin, fb post 5/2/12
 
I wonder if I’ll know Him when
I see Him face to face.
I wonder if I’ll recognize
The beauty and the grace
 
That loved me first, when I was still
A sinner – lost, undone.
I wonder if I’ll recognize
That precious, holy One
 
Who took my place on Calvary…
Ah yes! the prints will be
Engraved upon His hands and side
For all the world to see.
 
Yes! I will know my Jesus
When I greet eternity.
But will He see His own reflection
When He looks at me?
 
 
“And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory,
are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory,
which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.”
2 Corinthians 3:18 NIV

Thanks so much for your words of encouragement, Glenys! I'm glad you were blessed. :-) I have been working on putting my poems into a second devotional book. But as soon as I'm finished, I do plan to look into Christian magazines, to see if they would be interested. Thank you for the suggestion. It helps to confirm that I'm on the right track. Blessings! Lisa
