Because He lives

We sang Bill Gaither's son "Because He lives" in worship this morning. One verse struck me:

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.

Well maybe it's just because I have a certain obsession with babies. As any of my friends who have one. 

But what I was thinking of was that there have been many times in history during which people have been reluctant to have children because of their fears of war, financial hardship or persecution. This song acknowledges that times are uncertain, but reminds us that we are in God's hands no matter what and our children will be too.

The song's chorus is:

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.

Just because He lives.

How has He made your life better?
