I’m Grateful for Heaven

As a concept and as a place

Sunday January 14, 2024


I’m not sure what I would do if I didn’t have a concept of Heaven in my mind. It yields so very many benefits for me:

I have a sense that heaven is more like a peaceful home than a luxurious resort. Physical amenities don’t yield joy. True pleasure and enduring happiness in life come from inner peace.

My heavenly home would probably be more spruced up, but this is pretty peaceful.

As a concept alone, it guides you to make better decisions by living long term: death is only a door to the beyond. Even if I assume that heaven is a farce, still believing in it yields so much good for one’s life. But thankfully it’s not just some notion. It’s a real place. I’m grateful the Lord created the heavens.

Believe in God; believe that he is, and that he created all things, both in heaven and in earth; believe that he has all wisdom, and all power, both in heaven and in earth; believe that man doth not comprehend all the things which the Lord can comprehend. Mosiah 4.9
