He set His gaze to heaven, His path leading to the Father. He left the grave behind, leaving the gates of Hell ravaged and in submission. Our King, the Holy One of Heaven ascended on High to His rightful throne. Setting eternity's hope and promise deep within the hearts of those who loved Him, the Son of God and the Son of Man went before us to prepare a place where we would be with Him for all eternity.
Our lives here are but a breath, they are but a whisper in the wind. Swift to come and swift to go. But what is lasting, what is eternal, is what is connected to Him. Eyes set ahead, hearts on fire, we see His glory, His radiance, shining brighter than the sun. Our hope is anchored in Him. Each day brings us closer to the day we dwell in the presence of His eternal reign.
