After we have finished our mission in this life, can we imagine being embraced by the Savior when it is time to return home? What joy will fill our hearts at that time if we have endured to the end and followed him. Can we imagine him saying to us:
"Come unto me in my kingdom; and with me ye shall find rest” (3 Ne. 28:3 https://www.lds.org/scriptures/bofm/3-ne/28.3 )
Further, can we imagine after a lifetime of service to the Lord being welcomed back by him saying "Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord." (Matthew 25:21 https://www.lds.org/scriptures/nt/matt/25.21 )
What sublime peace will fill our hearts at that time. Until it is our time to return home, may we live worthy of the companionship of the spirit, for it is sent by our Father in Heaven in the Savior's name for us, to comfort, strengthen, and help us. When we have the spirit we feel just as if the Savior were there, beside us. I pray that all may feel of that joy, for it is free unto all who come unto the Savior.
