Because He Lives...

Today we attended services at Iglesia Bautista Belen here in Coban. It rained this morning so we were thankful that we didn't have far to go. It has since dried up and turned into a nice sunny day.

We sang many songs during the service, which is normal. One of those songs was the hymn "Because He Lives". We have sung that song all our lives in church but for some reason, today, it ministered to me like never before. Here are the words in English-

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.

Here is the chorus being sung in K'ekchi' during the service today-

Here are the words in K'ekchi'-


Xban nak yo'yo li Kacua Jesus

Inc'a' chic tinxucuak lain.

Xban nak ninnau chi yal yo'yo li Cristo,

Ut cuan cuiq'uin chi junelic,

Mas sa inch'ol.

It is great how God can use the simplest of things, like a song, to speak to our hearts! We love moments like that!

  1. Hey Regina...that is one of my favorite songs ever...seems like it will minister to my heart also at times when I least expect it! I loved listening to it in the K'ekchi mistaking the music! I am working at the church today so I had high speed to you guys, Joanne
