During Easter holidays of 2005, I got a devastating doctor’s report.
I had visited my grandma during the Easter weekend.As I returned home,I decided to check myself in one of the mobile clinics that were camping in downtown.Woe unto me, The report wasn’t very good,as per those days,it sounded like a death sentence.It was hard to sleep and tears flowed easily.
Then the Lord reminded me of this song,“Because He lives I can face tomorrow.”This song had been a favorite over the past years, but from 2005 it had a more convincing meaning. I started singing this song.I believed every word it said.I sang this song over and over again, so many times.Later on God gave me peace .
The song says that though our future is uncertain,we can still face tomorrow because Jesus is alive.Our strength comes from the fact that Jesus Christ is alive.
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.
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.
And then one day I’ll cross that river,
I’ll fight life’s final war with pain.
And then as death gives way to victory,
I’ll see the lights of glory and I’ll know He reigns.
I sang until I felt the Presence of Jesus next to me.
I believe that Jesus Christ once lived,he died and was buried.On the third day he rose again.He ascended into heaven and is now seated at the right hand of God interceding for his people.He will come back to take his people.
Since Jesus is alive, I learnt to put all fear away,thank God that I didn’t succumb to illness.
These scriptures were my portion:
But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed.
“Who forgives all your sins, Who heals all your diseases;”
The Lord has been faithful,keeping me in perfect health.Praise the Lord!
But the angel answered and said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here; for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. And go quickly and tell His disciples that He is risen from the dead, and indeed He is going before you into Galilee; there you will see Him. Behold, I have told you.” So they went out quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, and ran to bring His disciples word.
