I’ve been thinking about heaven...

When things get tough here on earth sometimes it is good to think about the wonders of heaven. After David Kraft died, his six-year-old daughter, Karen, introduced me to this little song. Heaven is a wonderful place, filled with glory and grace. I’m going to see my Savior’s face. Heaven is a wonderful, heaven is a glorious, heaven is a wonderful place. Joyce Brown captured some interesting concepts about heaven in her book, Snapshots of Heaven. What amazing possibilities! Just think about it!

I’ve been thinking about happiness...

Does God want us to be happy? Yes. But it is not the happiness we seek through self-fulfillment, and it is not the feeling that ebbs and flows with circumstances and possessions. God wants us to have the kind of happiness that endures—joy, peace, and contentment—and these only come through trusting Him, obeying Him and loving Him, even when it’s hard. Below are ten Scriptures for meditation along with “Jesus questions” to draw you closer to the Source of joy, peace, and contentment—the wellspring of God’s eternal words.
