What goes up must come down.
That is the reality of life since time began.
We toss our dreams up into the air
And they soon fall back broken. Not fair.
We go up in flights of fancy and dream
We get all fired up and full of steam
But soon enough along comes trouble
To bring us down and burst our bubble.
What goes down must come up.
That is the good news and it’s not just perhaps.
A seed must fall to the ground to come up again
Christ ascended into to heaven so with us He can remain.
Life is like a trampoline where one can prance
The higher the fall, the farther up the bounce.
The deeper we fall, the higher up we rise
Our smiles often sweetened by our cries.
What goes around come around.
That has always been the golden rule.
For we reap whatever it is we sow
Our giving decides how much we grow and glow.
What goes out of the mouth comes from the heart.
Through our words, our inmost soul we impart.
The mystical event of Christ’s heavenly ascension
Imparts the reality that He is our constant companion.
God mounts his throne to shouts of joy: a blare of trumpets for the Lord.
~ Psalm 47
Jesus said to his disciples:
“Go into the whole world
and proclaim the gospel to every creature.
Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved;
whoever does not believe will be condemned.
These signs will accompany those who believe:
in my name they will drive out demons,
they will speak new languages.
They will pick up serpents with their hands,
and if they drink any deadly thing, it will not harm them.
They will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
So then the Lord Jesus, after he spoke to them,
was taken up into heaven
and took his seat at the right hand of God.
But they went forth and preached everywhere,
while the Lord worked with them
and confirmed the word through accompanying signs.
