Believing Christ When Death Makes It Hard

My good friend Eric Sinclair, ruminating on the fact that, while he believes his recently deceased daughter will be in heaven, it would still be a supremely satisfying heaven without his daughter and only Christ to enjoy:

That seems incomprehensible to me on some level, and I don’t think I will ever be able to fully understand it while living in a fallen world. Even so, I trust it to be true. While I have no reason to imagine Heaven without my daughter, it is encouraging to know that it would still be Heaven without her. That’s how big our God is. Christ is so glorious and majestic that His presence alone is enough to fill eternity with unsurpassed joy. That is crazy love.

Herein Eric displays what the Bible calls enduring faith: he trusts God’s Word even when his feelings are slow to agree, admitting that his own fallenness, and not anything inferior in God’s character, is the real problem.
