I had just dropped the big kids off at school and was headed back across town. As always, my radio was turned to Spirit FM but I had the volume down a bit low because I had been talking to Emma just before she jumped out of the car.
All of a sudden, my 2 year old, Bella, squeals “Turn it up!!”
So I did.
The song that was playing was one that I’ve heard dozens of times but had never really listened to the words. Clearly the Lord wanted to get my attention this morning and He used my wee babe to do so.
The song was Overcomer by Mandisa. There is one section of the lyric that got me.
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
The one who overcame death is living inside of me, what can I not do?
I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”
(John 16:33 ESV)
I needed to hear this promise today. Thank God that my sweet Bella wanted to crank the tunes first thing this morning.
I wanted to share the song & video with you all on this beautiful Friday. Let me warn you, it’s a tear jerker (or at least it was for this weepy chick).
