You’re An Overcomer

We are the Champions. Not every team can say that. Not every team can do that.  Only the elite few can. Only the elite few do.  As believers, we all can overcome any and every hurdle we have. We can defeat every foe we face. We and subdue every challenge we come across.  But it depends on how bad we want it. Jesus did his part. He shed His blood.  He gave His life. What more can He do?  So it’s up to us to live our lives as a testimony to His goodness and His grace.

Watch the “Overcomer” video by the former American Idol singer Mandisa.  You’ll thank me later. Former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords and retired astronaut and Navy Captain Mark Kelly are featured in the music video for three-time GRAMMY® nominee and Season 5 American Idol finalist Mandisa’s new Christian chart-topping single “Overcomer.”

“I was really inspired by Mandisa’s song ‘Overcomer’ because its message is one of hope, perseverance and faith,” said Giffords. “We can’t always control what happens to us in life, but we can control how we respond. Like the song says, if we keep positive and ‘stay in the fight till the final round,’ we can overcome more than we ever dreamed possible.”

The “Overcomer” video, which includes never-before-released footage of Giffords’ road to recovery after being shot in the head at point-blank range at a Congress on Your Corner event in Tucson in 2011, Giffords and Kelly appear in the video alongside Good Morning America anchor Robin Roberts and Olympic gold medal-winning figure skater Scott Hamilton.

The powerful words to this great song are as follows: 

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 

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

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

So how bad to you want it? The University of Maryland (my alma matter!) Men’s Soccer Team has been good for quite some time.  They have overcome mediocrity, achieved superlative success, and have earned the right to be called champions.  They won the ACC Championship this year. In 2008, when they were national champions, the sports page article read, “Turnaround Takes Terps to Title Shot.” During that season, the Terps lost a game they should have won. They used that loss as “the final lesson” en route to winning the NCAA Soccer title that magical championship season.

What have you overcome?  What have you defeated?  What have you gained victory over? In Revelation it says that “They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimony. For they did not cling to life even in the face of death.”
