He overcame!!!

You know me and my love for worship music.  Recently my favorite song is by Jeremy Camp-“Overcome”.   The words summarize our journey and as we look back on where we were and where we are now, it’s amazing to look back and see how God truly did overcome! 

When I hear the words to this song I am brought to tears as I remember where we were and where God has allowed us to be now.  I am amazed at the power of our Lord.  Most of you who read this know that our faith carried us through our journey and we will tell anyone who ask, our little baby growing in my tummy is a miracle from God.   I just keep thinking back to the obstacles that stood before us, the doctors who told us it wasn’t worth trying again, the best clinic in the world who told us our best chance was 10%.  As a Christian, it’s so evident to us to see how God overcame all those obstacles.  I know others may say it was the doctors, some may say it was coincidence; some may say it was eventually bound to happen. But Dave and I will always know there was no other way except through our Lord.  For us, it’s impossible to look back and not see God working through each and every step of the way to bring this beautiful little miracle into our lives. 

As I now journey through pregnancy, I am trying to enjoy every minute, even the nights I don’t feel so hot:)  I am reminded daily not to take this for granted and to thank God daily for the blessing growing inside of me.  Instead of thinking about how God will grow the rest of our family one day, or how that even looks, all we can do now is enjoy where He has us and remember the journey he walked us through to get here. 

Because of Jesus’ atoning death and victorious resurrection, we are all equipped to overcome the difficulties and hardships in life!  “For nothing is impossible with God” (Luke 1:37)

There’s no better ending to this blog than to share the chorus to the song which sums up the joy in my heart and the authority and power of our Lord! 


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

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