What it is like to embrace the Savior "I would give everything that I am"

May we all follow the Savior, and seek out our Father in Heaven by pouring out our hearts to him in prayer, and be "eternally encircled in the arms of [our Savior's] love." As the Nephi says,  "I have beheld his glory, and I am encircled about eternally in the arms of his love" (2 Nephi 1:15 https://www.lds.org/scriptures/bofm/2-ne/1.15 )

The more we seek after the Lord, the more we do his work, the more we can be encircled in the arms of his love here through the spirit.  Then, at the last day, we can be encircled in the arms of his love again as he embraces us.  President Eyring says it so well:

"We will on the Day of Judgment stand before the Savior, face to face. It will be a time of joy for those who have drawn close to Him in His service in this life. It will be a joy to hear the words: “Well done, thou good and faithful servant.” I so testify as a witness of the risen Savior and our Redeemer in the name of Jesus Christ, amen."

Additionally, Elder Melvin J Ballard had an experience where he embraced the Savior, and these are his words about that: "He put His arms around me and kissed me, as He took me into His bosom, and He blessed me until my whole being was thrilled...Oh! If I could live worthy, though it would require four-score years, so that in the end when I have finished I could go into His presence and receive the feeling that I then had in His presence, I would give everything that I am or ever hope to be!” - see more at http://ldsprinciples.blogspot.com/2015/04/elder-ballard-sees-savior-and-feels-of.html 

May we give everything in our whole souls for the Savior, and his work, and be able to feel of his warm embrace at the last day.
