Heaven On Earth

Every once and a while, after something good happens or something leaves me with a feeling of rejoice and inexplicable joy, I feel as though God has given me a small taste of what heaven will be like.

It’s a comforting feeling, if it’s joyous to be in heaven, then wouldn’t it mean that every time humans feel pure, uncorrupted love or happiness, that we are being given a preview of the happiness and love in heaven?

I think it’s a nice thought, that God gives us joy in order to encourage us on our path to Him. Despite all of the struggle, it reminds me of the reward waiting for the righteous.
