Five Minute Friday: BECAUSE

Because He lives, I can face tomorrow,

Because He lives, all fear is gone;

Because I know He holds the future

And live is worth the living, just because He lives!

Because He Lives is one of my favorite old worship songs ever!

For several years now, I have signed my Christmas cards and other personal notes, “Because of Him”, because everything that I am is exactly that – because of Jesus.

Because of Him.

I am forgiven and will spend eternity with Him.

I am loved and safe and where He wants me to be.

Everything in my life is because of what Jesus did for me.

That is the most important ‘because’ in my life.

How do you finish that sentence? Because…

  1. I finish that sentence exactly the same way. I live because He lives. I love because He loved me first. Thank-you for your uplifting words. A FMF neighbor….

    Absolutely beautiful!! “Because He lives!” Amen!!

  3. Nice blog, but actually, Because He Lives is not THAT old! I think it was written by one of the Gaithers in the 1960’s…..Still beautiful, though, isn’t it?

    Hi Louise, Thank you for your comment. You’re right – it’s not that old – it’s actually a timeless song that is absolutely still beautiful. 🙂
