Overcomer?!

From time to time, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL) I discuss issues.  And, music that relates to the issue.

My friend H, who is also on Facebook (FB) messaged me with a link to a song that I had never heard, before.  I found it to be inspiring.

Knowing that I am going through some difficult trials, I believe that when H came across this song, that's why she sent it to me.  To encourage me.  Thank you, H!

Yes, even though I write LwL in an effort to encourage others, there are times when I believe I need encouragement, also.  Of course, H knows I adore music, so that may be why I received the link. 

In any case, I enjoyed it! 

The song is by Mandisa and is entitled, Overcomer.  Here is a link, so that you can listen and/or sing along:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oqvgR0WipLw.  The lyrics are below.

Overcomer

Staring at a stop sign
Watching people drive by
T Mac on the radio
Got so much on your mind
Nothing's really going right
Looking for a ray of hope

Whatever it is you may be going through
I know He's not gonna let it get the best of you

[Chorus:]
You're an overcomer
Stay in the fight ‘til the final round
You're not going under
‘Cause God is holding you right now
You might be down for a moment
Feeling like it's hopeless
That's when He reminds You
That you're an overcomer
You're an overcomer

Everybody's been down
Hit the bottom, hit the ground
Ooh, you're not alone
Just take a breath, don't forget
Hang on to His promises
He wants You to know
[Chorus]

The same Man, the Great I am
The one who overcame death
He's living inside of You
So just hold tight, fix your eyes
On the one who holds your life
There's nothing He can't do
He's telling you

(Take a breath, don't forget
Hang on to His promises)
[Chorus]

You're an overcomer
You're an overcomer
You're an overcomer

You're an overcomer

So don't quit, don't give in, you're an overcomer
Don't quit, don't give in, you're an overcomer
Don't quit, don't give in, you're an overcomer
You're an overcomer
 

Absolutely!  We all need to be overcomers.

Just as God told us in Revelation 21:7, "He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son." 

I thank the producers of that video for posting this verse at the end, for it is truly what we need to focus on, in our lives.  Being an overcomer, I mean.

I am.  At least, that is what I believe.

After all, I am trusting in my Lord, not just to save me, but to provide for my every need.  Just as He told us He would. And, am doing everything I can to be an overcomer.

I pray you are doing the same. 

After all, life isn't easy.  And, it's not kind.  But, God provides for those who belong to Him.

If you aren't trusting/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ, then you do not belong to Him.  Come to Him, today.  And, repent.  You'll be happy you did.


Until next time...
