Mandisa – Overcomer

If any one watched Good Morning America the other day, you would have seen the performance of Mandisa.  If you’re a follower of the show, you will know that Robin Roberts, an anchor for the show, has been sick, got better and has had a setback.  She is on her own journey, for survival.  When she first got better, Mandisa performed her song “Stronger” for her on the show.  For what I hear, they have built a friendship and Mandisa wrote this song with her on her mind.  As each of us travel on the road of our journey, we might come across times of failures and despair.  This song is about hope.  This song is about fighting for the outcome of your journey.  This song is about victory.  If this blog could have theme song, then this might be it.  My hope is that when your frustrated and you feel alone and don’t think you can do it, that this song will remind you that you are a overcomer. The lyrics are listed below.

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
