One word. 5 minutes. No edits. Linking up with Kate this week. If you’re interested you can get the details here.

Today’s word:  BECAUSE

This worship song is the first thing I thought of when I saw the word for the week.

Because HE lives, I can face tomorrow.

So many friends and family struggling right now, some with cancer, some with marriage difficulties, some on the verge of divorce, some so steeped in sin you can see it on their faces; others with financial difficulties.  We’ve had our share of trials the last few weeks, nothing as significant as others have had, but the little things in life add up and can stress a person out.

My cousins just lost their precious Granny last weekend.  And they lost their Momma a few years ago…

Granny and Aunt Charlotte

(Take many years ago when we all were a lot younger)

but, Because God LIVES.

They don’t have to face this alone.

Because He lives, they can rest in Him.

Granny sure did!  So did Aunt Charlotte!

If we know the Lord as our Savior, WE can rest in Him.  Earlier this week I wrote about fleeing on a horse.

I wasn’t resting in Him.

I wasn’t believing that HE could handle it.

I wasn’t willing to “cast my burden unto Jesus because He cares for me”  (1 Peter 5:7)

But I have new resolve to do just that
