IT WILL BE WORTH IT ALL
Christian living should be filled with pleasure and peace, not sorrow and strife. And it is what our heavenly Father desires for us. Trials, heartaches, tears, separations, and disappointments are all part of the voyage through this strange place of earth that we will continue to experience for as long as we are on it. And, at times, these experiences will be quite difficult to confront and bear. And we find ourselves whining and asking “why?” on a regular basis. Believers are likely to ask themselves this question more than any other, in my opinion.
Moreover, we are aware that He has pledged never to abandon or forsake us.
When the clouds part, the light beams through to reveal itself once again.
It is possible that we may reach a point in our understanding when we will proclaim, as Esther Kerr Rusthoi, the author of this week’s song, said, “it will all be worth it when we meet Jesus.” And we pray that day will come very soon.
- When the day appears long and our hardships difficult to bear, we’re tempted to grumble, mutter and despair; yet Christ will soon arrive to catch His Bride away, and all tears will be forgotten in God’s everlasting day.
- When the sky appears gloomy with not a ray of light, we are tossed and pushed on with no human assistance in sight;But there is one in heav’n who understands our deepest care, and he is the one who loves us.
- Refrain It will all be worth it when we encounter Jesus face to face.
- (3)Life’s day will soon come to an end, and all storms will be forgotten.
- The tempter will be expelled, and we will be relieved of our load.
Refrain It will all be worth it when we meet Jesus; when we see Christ, life’s troubles will appear insignificant; one glance of His tender face will erase all grief; therefore fearlessly continue the marathon till we see Christ. Take a listen to the lyrics and music in this section. LISTEN
It Will be Worth it All
Esther K. Rusthoi wrote the lyrics and composed the music.
It Will be Worth it All When We See Jesus
(When We Come Upon Christ) D GD says that the day might seem particularly lengthy at times. Our difficulties are difficult to endure; We’re inclined to grumble, D to moan and be dejected about the situation. Christ, on the other hand, will arrive shortly GD To entice His spouse away from him; GD All tears have been dried up for good. GA7D In the eternal day of God. Chorus:DGD All of our efforts will be rewarded when we see Jesus; A7D When we see Christ, the difficulties of life will appear insignificant.
- We must fearlessly run the race until we reach Christ’s arrival.
- But there is someone in heaven who understands our innermost concerns; let Jesus take care of your situation.
- Life’s days will soon come to an end, and all storms will be forgotten; we shall bridge the vast divide.
- We’ll be able to enjoy the pleasures of heav’n together.

Jesus Paid it All – This Hymn Was More than a Coincidence
Elvina Hall wondered aloud how long Pastor’s prayer would last this morning. Elvina’s thoughts turned to our need for redemption and the price that Jesus had to pay for it as she sat in the choir loft. Words began to develop of their own accord. She needed to get them to the ground. She, on the other hand, did not have any paper. That, however, was not quite correct. I hear the Savior say, “Thy strength truly is small;Child of weakness, watch and pray;Find in Me thine all in all,” and she scribbled it on the flyleaf of her hymnbook.
- Not too shabby.
- She handed the remarks on to her pastor after the service.
- It’s possible we’ll never know.
- The pastor had lately received a new piece written by organist John Grape, who had handed it to him.
- As a result, he brought them together.
Lyrics of “Jesus Paid It All”
- “Thy strength really is small
- Child of weakness, keep watch and pray
- Find in Me thine all in all,” I hear the Savior say.
- Finally, Jesus paid it everything
- I owe everything to Him. A crimson stain had been left, but He had removed it with the whiteness of snow
- IWhereby Thygraceclaims that I have done nothing good
- I’m going to wash my clothes in white. Calv’ry’s Lamb was sacrificed in order to save us. And now that I am fully clothed in Him, wearing His righteousness as my garment, close to His side, I am marvelously blessed
- The Lord, certainly, I have discovered that only Thy might, and Thine alone, has the power to transform the *leper’s spots and melt the heart of stone
- When I emerge from my death bed, my ransomed soul will proclaim, “Jesus died to save my soul,” and the vaulted sky will be torn apart. If I am completely finished in Him when I stand before the throne, I will lay down all of my trophies at Jesus’ feet.
Elvina Hall was 45 years old at the time of the incident. She was born on this day, June 4, 1820, and was married twice: first to Richard Hall, and then, following his death, to Thomas Meyers, who was a Methodist pastor. She passed away in 1899.

Our 20 Favorite Songs about Jesus
Before we look at some of our favorite Jesus songs for praise and worship, let us consider why we worship in the first place. We worship to show our gratitude for God for who he is, to magnify him, and to give appreciation to Jesus for what he has done. We come to worship in order to express our gratitude to God the Father and Jesus for everything he has done for us. We worship in order to come closer to the living God and to spend more time in his presence with him. We worship in order to have a taste of Heaven on earth.
In praise hymns, the sacrifice of Jesus and the gift of redemption that God provided through him are two of the most frequently encountered topics.
We honor the One who taught us how to live, who never sinned but bore the sins of the entire world upon his shoulders.
According to John 3:16, “For God so loved the world,” God sacrificed his only Son, “so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life.” The Bible says in John 3:16 For your convenience, we’ve produced a list of Our 20 Favorite Jesus Songs to serve as a reminder of who Jesus is and what he’s done for us.
How intense the agony of a piercing loss. “As the scars that blemish the Chosen One raise many sons to glory, the Father turns His face away from them.” Photos courtesy of Thinkstock/mbolina. The top 20 songs about Jesus.
I See Jesus lyrics by Hank Snow – original song full text. Official I See Jesus lyrics, 2022 version
When a guy named Steven taught about the Lord, many were saved and subsequently cured as a result of hearing his message. Satan did not take kindly to it, and soon he gathered his followers. Steven sobbed openly while he was being tried on that particular day. I see a vision of Jesus standing at the right hand of the Father. I see Jesus over in the Promised LandThe work is done, and now I’m on my way to be with him. I see Jesus standing at the door, ready to welcome me. – Featured as an instrumental – As the stones rained down on him, doing havoc on his body, Steven realized that he would soon be free of all toil and sorrow.
- He prayed that the Lord would pardon them because they were unaware of what they were doing.
- March the hero up to the throne of God and into the kingdom of heaven.
- I see Jesus standing at the right hand of the father.
- I see Jesus standing at the door, ready to welcome me.
Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus: The Inspiring Story of this Hymn’s Origin — Jen Miskov
Jennifer A. Miskov, Ph.D.’s Walking on Water: Experiencing a Life of Miracles, Courageous Faith, and Union with God is the inspiration for this piece. “Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus” is a hymn that has always been a favorite of mine. Every time I sing it, it transports me directly into the presence of Jesus. Every single time. I was curious as to what sort of music could have such anointing. As a result, some years ago, I started to look into its origins in order to understand more. I discovered that the song was composed by Helen H.
It was also based on a poem she had written titled “Focussed: A Story and a Song,” which I thought to be quite interesting.
I would want to thank her for her service.
Famous art reviewers took notice of her early work and were even prepared to invest in her schooling since they saw the enormous potential she has as an artist.
While living in London, she began to respond to this cry by walking out into the streets alone in the middle of the night to locate and rescue prostitutes who were on the streets.
This calling would come at a high price, as it would force her to give up her promising artistic career in order to follow it.
As soon as she replied to the call, she discovered that no mission agencies would deploy her or sponsor her mission.
For forty years, she lived in the desert’s obscurity among the locals, blending in with their culture.
For that one reason, she had sacrificed her entire life.
Here is the original poem, as written, with nothing modified in order to maintain the authority of the source.
It happened in the early hours of the morning in a little wood.
It seemed out of nowhere, shining brightly from a dark area of purple brown stalks and tawny moss, that a huge golden star had appeared.
And it looked to be talking to itself as it stood there, as if it were discussing the potential of making the absolute most of our lives.
Lives that have been gathered together and focused on a single goal—Christ—are the kinds of lives on which God can concentrate blessing.
In the advancement of science, we may see the concept reflected in the use of the telephone and wireless technology in the area of sound, and the use of radium and ultra violet rays in the arena of light.
The current trend in every field of learning and craftsmanship is to specialize—to choose a single subject and devote all of one’s time and energy to it to completion.
These vested interests, on the other hand, may be found everywhere.
The risk of floating between them is that the “good” will cover up for the “best” much more effectively than it could be masked by outright frivolity, with its stifled heart-ache at its own emptiness.
The place where our thoughts rest as we regain awareness in the morning is an important question.
Is it possible that this test does not provide the answer?
Put your entire life and being on display before Him, and ask Him to reveal whether or not everything is centered on Christ and His glory.
What exactly does this focusing imply?
This is demonstrated by the operation of any lens, whether it be a microscope, a telescope, or a camera.
When you stare through the window bars, the world beyond is merely a shadow; when you look through the window bars into the distance, it is the bars that become ghosts.
What do you think?
To what extent should we be willing to abandon all goals, all aspirations, all wants, and all endeavors if they cannot be brought sharply and clearly into the center of “this one thing I do”?
Indeed, it will—just as the mountain road narrows as we ascend, since where we place our feet matters more and more as we ascend—but there is always a wider and wider vista, as well as purer, cleaner air, with each step we take on the mountain route.
Is there something to be concerned about here?
After all, “to live is Christ,” therefore it’s worth our while to let God to see what He can do with these lives of ours.
Looking at the items to be dropped, rather than the one point that is to be brought out, will yield the most accurate results.
As a result, “He is worthy” of having everything that is available in the heart that He has died to gain.” In this line, the term “attrait” was used at the end to refer to the French word for “attraction,” which Lilias frequently used in her writings.
“Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus” is a poem written by Helen Lemmel.
Oh, spirit, do you feel worn out and troubled?
There’s enough light to take a peek at the Savior, and life is more plentiful and free than ever before!
We follow Him there;O’er us sin has no more dominion-For we are more than conquerors!
He has passed through death into eternal life, and we have followed Him there;O’er us sin has no more dominion-For we are more than conquerors!
His Word will not fail you—He has promised; Believe Him, and all will be well: Then go to a dying planet and tell everyone about His wonderful redemption!
When we live lives of hiddenness, when we seek the face of Jesus above all else, there is something strong at work.
This is the point at which everything changes. We pray that as we make the decision to fix our gaze on Jesus today, gazing deeply into His wonderful face, the things of this world and everything that bothers us will become faintly dim in the light of His glory and grace.
