Because He Lives

My boys asked me today who wrote the song "Because He Lives".  I told them it was an old hymn, but then looked it up.  Turns out it was written by the Gaither's in the early 70's.  Shame on this good ol' Baptist-grown girl for not knowing that!  LOL  (And for the record, it's not old... it's just a couple years older then me. *grin*)

The following video is an interview done with Bill and Gloria about the song "Because He Lives", and after listening I felt I had to post.  

Many people think we are crazy for continuing to bring kids into this fallen world.  Here is the reason we can, without fear!

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.

God has promised to provide. He gives us the freedom to live without fear. He LOVES us.  He holds the future, and that truly does make life worth living!
