merle haggard “What Will It Be Like”

Merle Haggard’s song “What Will It Be Like” is just the same or has a connection with George Jones “How Beautiful Heaven Must Be.” Both singers are long-time friends and have recorded songs together, such as “Yesterday’s Wine,” “C.C. Waterback,” and “The Brothers” in 1982.

Merle Haggard’s Song

“What Will It Be Like” is a song written by Merle Haggard and it was included on one of his albums, Award Winning Gospel Hits. The album contained 12 country gospel songs all recorded by Merle. Furthermore, most of the songs were written by him.

About the Song

Heaven is a beautiful place, and that is what every one of us believes it to be. No one wants to die and go to hell, we all want to be saved by God. We all want to reach heaven and experience the beautiful life that God promises us. “What Will It Be Like” describes the feeling of being in heaven. The narrator mentions how heaven will look like, and what will happen before we go there. He tries to imagine what it’s like to live in a place that is full of joy and no sorrow at all. What about you what does heaven look like to you? Do you know how it feels like when you will be in heaven?

The Promise

One thing that the Bible assures us is when we go to heaven we will never experience any emotions such as anger, jealousy or hatred. When we enter the kingdom of God the only two emotions we will have is love and happiness. Wouldn’t that be great?

“They will live in safety, and no one will make them afraid.” Ezekiel 34:28

It is only in heaven where we can find peace, and finally, see our loved ones, because God said He would raise the dead when the time has come. We will reunite with the people we love. It’s great to be in heaven.

“But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.” 1 Corinthian 15:20
