I am a huge fan of Christian music. It never fails to inspire me and make me feel closer to Christ. It doesn’t matter how stressed I am, when I play my favorite Christian songs, I am transformed. My attitude becomes more positive, my worries dissipate, and I even feel more alive.

The first year of my divorce was brutal. My world was collapsing around me. My brother gave me a couple of Christian music CDs and they became my shelter from my storms. I recently heard a powerful song, Overcomer*, by Mandisa. It reminded me how Christ gives me all the strength I need to overcome any difficulty–both then and now.  I hope it also reminds you that you are never walking alone through life’s challenges. Christ is with you every step of the way giving you everything you need to persevere!

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*

  1. Dear Vince,
    Thank you! Many Christian songs got me through and lifted me up during the darkest days. I felt closer to Our Lord through them too. God used them to let me know He was right there with me and that I still belonged to Him.
    God bless you!
