Expressions of Face

Expressions of Face

In your face, at times your biography is read,
The mood of your heart, thoughts in your head.

In your face, a sad countenance with tears
Exposes inner struggle, suffering, and fears.

In your face, as through a window pane,
A sunny view within, shall outwardly reign.

If upon your face, there be a smile,
If deceitful, it will last only a little while.

If upon your face, there be masking make-up,
Know that what lies beneath cannot always be covered up.

If upon your face, you accentuate your conceit,
Humiliation will in time teach you to be more discreet.

Written all over your face, is your Creator’s semblance.
Only let your heart mirror His to show a true resemblance.

Written all over your face, is the Lord’s wondrous grace.
Your distinctive features, His, own, hand did trace.

Written all over your face, is God’s personal touch,
Proving His intimate care, that He loves you very much.

Seek God’s face at the blessed onset of each new day.
Love Him, thank Him, ask Him to guide your way.

Seek God’s face when your soul is burdened down.
He is your shield, glory, and lifter when you are cast down.

Seek God’s face through Jesus, salvation’s door.
And with joy, you shall behold Him face to face forevermore.

Psalm 17:15 (Amplified Bible)As for me, I will continue beholding Your face in righteousness (rightness, justice, and right standing with You); I shall be fully satisfied, when I awake [to find myself] beholding Your form [and having sweet communion with You].

Beloved, I pray your face expresses the true joy of knowing and beholding
Christ, your Savior, as you await the promise of a glorious eternity, where frowns and sad countenances are banished forever for there will be no reason to frown nor be sad.

I Owe Jesus
