It's a more formal construction, but if you didn't want to worry about messing around with cases you could use the construction "propterea quod," which also means "because," or "on account of." It implies a strong causal relation between two phrases. Like "I'm happy (precisely) because I received good news." "Laetor propterea quod bonum nuntium accepi."

Horae quidem cedunt et dies et menses et anni, nec praeteritum tempus umquam revertitur nec quid sequatur sciri potest. Quod cuique temporis ad vivendum datur, eo debet esse contentus. --Cicero, De Senectute
