Because HE Lives
Posted on April 25, 2018.
Easter coincides with the full moon, and historically there is always a cold snap right before Easter Sunday. For Pearson Farm, Easter brings a sigh of relief, for we have made it through the cold dark winter, and the rising sun brings forth hope that our crop has made it through and now it’s time to get to work tending it. I was reminded this week of one of my favorite hymns, Because He Lives. The words of this beautiful song are a glorious testament to God’s goodness and grace. They declare an endless hope for our future along with a gentle reminder that we are able to face tomorrow with all the uncertainties it brings. Farming is certainly full of unpredictability and concern, but we are able to trust that God is faithful, and He will provide for all our needs. His provision may not always look the way we would like, but we are assured that he will take care of us, Because He Lives!
We hope you will enjoy this Easter weekend like us, gathering with family and friends celebrating the promise that Easter brings. The promise that God sent his only son to die on the cross and then bring Him back from the grave so that we may have eternal life with Him.
“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,
Life is the worth the living, just BECAUSE HE LIVES!”
