Because He Lives

The fear of what the future holds seems to be a common theme in my life and the lives of my friends (hmm.. could have something to do with the fact that most of us are graduating college in May...). I've written about my own fear of the unknown before, so I won't do it again, all I want to do is give you the words that I often sing to myself when I feel fearful. I hope it's an encouragement to you. We trust in the God who created the world by His word, He is more than able to accomplish what concerns you today and everyday. He just might not do it the way you want him to.

"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." -Bill Gaither

This song is forever fused in my mind with the first day our friends the Benevides' came back to church after their daughter Julie was severely brain damaged. Your dad and I were new Christians and they had been influential in our salvation. Watching Joyce Benevides sing that song with tears streaming down her face spoke more to me about enduring faith than hundreds of sermons. It still makes me cry to think about it.
