Because He Lives

Please scroll down my blog to mute my playlist so you can listen to this beautiful video. Thank you.


God sent His son, they called Him, Jesus;
He came to love, heal and forgive;
He lived and died to buy my pardon,
An empty grave is there to prove my Savior lives!

Chorus
Because He lives, I can face tomorrow,
Because He lives, all fear is gone;
Because I know He holds the future,
And life is worth the living,
Just because He lives!

How sweet to hold a newborn baby,
And feel the pride and joy he gives;
But greater still the calm assurance:
This child can face uncertain days because He Lives!

Chorus
Because He lives, I can face tomorrow,
Because He lives, all fear is gone;
Because I know He holds the future,
And life is worth the living,
Just because He lives!

And then one day, I'll cross the river,
I'll fight life's final war with pain;
And then, as death gives way to vict'ry,
I'll see the lights of glory and I'll know He lives!

Chorus
Because He lives, I can face tomorrow,
Because He lives, all fear is gone;
Because I know He holds the future,
And life is worth the living,
Just because He lives

It's so wonderful to know that Because He Lives, we can face uncertain days - trials, pain, sadness, illness, even death - all because He lives! The Lord tells us to give all our cares to Him. When we do, all our fears about the future are gone! Life becomes worth living again, because we put all our cares, sadness, pain, illness, and fears in God's hands! The key is when we do give the Lord our cares, we must leave them there - not take them back with us! When we do, the fear and worries comes back. God doesn't promise a life without sorrow, but He does promise to be with us through our pain. And when we take our final breathe on earth, we will wake up breathing celestial air - pain and worry free; victorious all because Christ Lives!!

Thank you Heavenly Father for giving us Your Son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross for our sins. Thank you Heavenly Father that you did not stop there; that raised Jesus from death and He lives eternally in Heaven with you! Thank you that because Christ lives we too can live victorious with You forever and ever! Amen.

Great post. I will get back to you about the desert. It is great to see actual pictures of the desert for the kids. That way they can put it into perspective. My husband is starting online classes Tuesday at Grand Canyon University...ever heard of it? It is in Arizona.

Pretty song and great post. No, God never promised a life without struggles. By the way, I love that when I visit here I get to hear the flight of the bumble bee. I love that tune! Bzzzzzz....

Blessings!
