HE IS RISEN!

godHe stood there holding a sign, it simply read “For You”, and as He turned to walk away He bent down and picked up his bag, his heavy load and on He went. He didn’t ask for anything, only for us to hold him in our heart. On he went and with each step his baggage grew heavier with each person he passed, until he reached his journeys end.
The day after his death we longed for him, missed his presence so, and when we searched the bag He had carried, the one He left behind, it was empty; yet the imprints left on the inside read sorrow, grief, sins, suffering, pain and the list went on and on. He had all our heavy burdens with him, he took them with him, left nothing behind! The next day He rose from the dead and replaced all the people’s heavy loads with a joy that no words could explain. Everyone knew that believed in him, that they would soon meet up again at His home, His paradise in heaven! No longer would they have to suffer, for through Him they were saved! Sandie Heckman
