Just Because

I was listening to music tonight, and a song that I use to sing in church a long time ago came on. It’s an old song, written by Bill and Gloria Gaither, called “Because He Lives”. The chorus simply says: “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.”

Sometimes life is hard and there are days when we all wish we’d have just stayed in bed and maybe some that we do. Those days are the ones in which I’m glad I have my faith. I was raised in church, and I remember fondly the music I was raised listening to and singing. My grandparents were the choir directors in the church I grew up in, and I even spent many years leading worship in a few churches myself.

Songs of hope and faith brought me through many hard times in my life and made the good times even better. We all go through stuff, and I’m glad I had this music to lean on in my times of struggle. The last several weeks have been an especially difficult time as my family has been afflicted with Covid-19. So far, everyone survived and is recovering, but it all has been an uphill journey. I’m thankful for songs like the one above, as they keep me rooted and grounded in my faith and hope.

We all have things that root us to hope, faith, or even just reality. What songs or other things keep you grounded?
