Christ has Overcome

Monday evening was spent getting some grocery shopping done with my little man.  Tim had the girls at soccer practice.  On the way home, I was cruising to some Jeremy Camp, playing his latest "We cry out! The worship project" on my ipod.  My favorite is "Jesus Saves" after seeing him in concert the first time last summer at the Unity Festival.  Listening to other songs, though, landed me on "Overcome".  For the next 20 minutes, on the drive home, I kept hitting repeat.  This song had me praising the Lord and I was glad there are few others on the road to see me!

John 16:33 NAS

"These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage ; I have overcome the world.

It reminds of a friend's encouragement, from Isaiah 53, "By his wounds, we are healed."
What does healing look like?  What does overcoming feel like?  It is of the soul & spirit and I know that no matter what happens to my friend in his cancer or other trials that will come upon me and my loved ones, I know that there is a peace that passes all understanding for Christ has conquered the grave and he promises resurrection for his followers as well.   And this glorious peace comes after giving thanks.  Giving thanks always comes first, then the miracle.

Seated above, enthroned in the Father's love 
Destined to die, poured out for all mankind 
God's only son perfect and spotless one 
He never sinned, but suffered as if He did 

All authority, every victory is Yours 
All authority, every victory is Yours 

Savior, worthy of honor and glory, worthy of all our praise, You overcame 

[ From: http://www.metrolyrics.com/overcome-lyrics-jeremy-camp.html ]

Jesus, awesome in power forever,awesome and great is Your name, You overcame 

Power in hand speaking the Father's plan 
You're sending us out, light in this broken land 

We will overcome by the blood of the Lamb 
and the word of our testimony, everyone overcome

That is why I continue to count my gifts #206-229
