You ARE an Overcomer!

The news on the TV seems like it is relaying one tragedy and one disaster after another.  It can be a bit overwhelming. Then you hear prayer requests and you realize there is a lot of tragedy and disaster just in people’s personal battles. Cancer, death, divorce, job loss, depression, suicide, illness, family squabbles… & the list goes on. It is easy to begin to feel hopeless in the light of all of this suffering even if it isn’t happening to you personally.

I was having one of those days this morning. Waking up in pain is never a fun way to start the day. Then I had a frustrating conversation with someone close that left me feeling like she just still doesn’t get it. As I was trying to give myself a pep talk to keep from crying and be able to focus with clear eyes on the road…this song came on the radio. Mandisa sings it so well:

I needed to hear that powerful message in that moment. I am an overcomer! Because God loves me like no other!  He is the force of gravity that holds me fully grounded in His perfect love and peace. There isn’t anything I have faced or will face that His love and mercy won’t see me through.

Phil 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
