Because He Lives

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.
.
.
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.
.
.
This is a familiar song to me, but one I had not heard in a long time. Sunday I went to church with my roommate and her family and this song was sung by the children's choir. It hit me while I was listening, how true these words are. Because He lives I don't need to worry about anything. The Lord gives me so much more than I deserve. This weekend was a hard one, but through so many things, like this song from church, I was able to remember how much the Lord loves me and is taking care of me. I am so thankful that God lives so that I can face tomorrow, have no fear and have hope. Thank you Lord!

Jamie,

We are looking forward to the college and career ministry - God is good and we feel blessed to be a part of these two ministries! Also know that we are praying for you and thinking of you! You are right - because He lives - the only reason we can face tomorrow! God is so good and is our source of strength - it is amazing how time and time again He shows He is the strength of my heart! When will you be home again? Miss seeing you!!!!!! Hope to see you sometime soon!
