Mandisa – Overcomer

You’re an overcomer!

The first time I heard Mandisa’s song Overcomer on the radio, I just smiled to the Lord knowing that, yes, I am an overcomer through Him.  It wasn’t until months later that I watched the official Overcomer music video that the song spoke even more to my heart.  No matter how many times you’ve heard this song, I want to encourage you to watch the video.  I have a feeling it will pull on your heartstrings as it has mine.

There are many battles that are faced in this life, but God is right there wanting to strengthen us and to help us overcome.  Nothing is too hard for Him!  He is able!  We are more than conquerors through Christ Jesus!

Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh; is anything too difficult for Me?  Jeremiah 32:27

Even as I finish typing out this post that I started a few days ago, I’m tired, I’m worn out, I’m weary.  I’m tempted to eat and I’m not hungry.  I just sat down and journaled through the emotional eating questions from the I Deserve a Donut app.  It was so good to do that.  I wrote out some scriptures that really spoke to me.  I read through my God list.  To be honest,  I still feel like eating, but I know that food isn’t going to take care of the real issue.  I am believing I will overcome this.  I won’t give into the temptation to eat.  God is my strength!  Food isn’t my savior.

He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.  Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.  They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.  Isaiah 40:29-31

I AM an overcomer!

How about you?

What are you facing?  Do you believe you are already an overcomer?  Are you willing to stop in your tracks and renew your mind?  Do you trust God to take care of what needs to be taken care of?  Praise Him!  Talk to Him!  Journal!  Read your God list.  He is able!

    I’ve seen this song 2x in 2 days so definitely feel God’s leading with this for myself! I’ve been reminded that we CAN overcome. TW has helped me see to that we observe & correct our actions, we shouldnt condemn ourselves. I was also taught that the quicker we “get back on the horse” the easier it will be. I pray that God helps me change on the inside, grow closer to him & that he’ll help change me inside & out! My verse today I will focus on is from Luke 10:19, I have given you authority over all the power of the enemy & you can walk among snakes & scorpions, crush them. Nothing will injure you. One step forward with the leading of God’s spirit is my goal! Thanks! (would like to be in drawing 🙂

      Michelle, that’s a wonderful verse! Yes! You are already an overcomer. And getting back on the horse like you said is part of that overcoming. Keep going!

    Christina – this is a wonderful post (as usual :)). The video is inspiring – I’ve never seen it – and your transparency appreciated. Journaling is so helpful in revealing the truth to us – I journaled the same questions last night!
