I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
When I was a child, my idea of heaven was my own room, away from my sisters.
As an adult, my heavenly aspirations have shifted a bit. Now that I’ve lived long enough to have friends and loved ones pass away, I sometimes catch myself thinking about reconnecting with them in heaven one day. That alone is enough to make heaven amazing. Seeing my loved ones again, in a place far more exquisite than even Alaska, is something to look forward to.
But along with heavenly hopes, we’re able to enjoy God’s goodness while still on earth. The psalmist wrote that he was “confident” of this.
Sweet Freedom in Action
Don’t be content to wait for heavenly glories. Instead, strengthen yourself in prayer and Bible reading and blessing others. Expect to see God’s goodness right where you are, even today.
