Who can predict the future?

Unforeseen?I just couldn’t help but laugh at this photo! I was all prepared to write a big long spiritual commentary on it, but after looking at the picture a little more, I figured that there wasn’t much else to say.

Then I remembered an old Gaither tune.

Because He Lives

God sent His son, they called Him Jesus
He came to love, To heal and forgive.
He lived and died to buy my pardon,
An empty grave is there to prove my Jesus lives.

Because He lives, I can face tomorrow.
Because He lives, All fear is gone!
Because I know He holds the future
My life is worth the living, just because He lives!

And then one day, I’ll cross that river,
I’ll fight life’s final war, 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 my Jesus lives.

Because He lives, I can face tomorrow.
Because He lives, All fear is gone!
Because I know He holds the future
My life is worth the living, just because He lives!

Because He lives, I can face tomorrow.
Because He lives, All fear is gone!
Because I know He holds the future
My life is worth the living, just because He lives!

My life is worth the living,
just because He lives!
