"Overcomer" by Mandisa

Tracey's Take


We quit too early. This was a little nugget my personal trainer Chris Welch shared with me that was like a bullseye to my heart because I know it's true about me. Is it true of you?
 
I can be humming along, accomplishing things, feeling great, and then a setback where I am disappointed in my performance can make me want to just give up on the spot. It's like I thought all the progress I made was somehow a fluke. Really I am just weak, inconsistent, and easily defeated. Harsh words to think about myself, but that was my "tape." God has different words to describe me - words that point to another version of me, a mysterious creature who has strength and power and emerges victorious from the battles of life. 
 
I am "more than a conqueror through Christ who loved me"- Romans 8:37.
 
I am an OVERCOMER.  "For everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God" -1 John 5:4-5.
 
Could it be that God, who created us, knows something about us that we don't know? Who I am in Christ is the best version of me. When I am at the end of my own strength and feel like I have absolutely nothing left to keep going with, this is where I finally stop trying to do it on my own and tap into the living God who has promised to be with me and fight for me.  I am an overcomer when I persevere in that trial and trust God all the way through to the other side. 
 
Jesus doesn't quit.  And when I put my trust in Him, neither do I.

"Overcomer" Lyrics
 
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 

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 
Oh, you're not alone 
Just take a breath, don't forget 
Hang on to His promises 
He wants You to know 

The same Man, the Great I am 
The one who overcame death 
Is 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
