Overcoming With God

When things come my way that I cannot face,
I will call out your Name and You will be there for me.

Your love and peace will fill me when it seems I can’t go on,
Nothing will ever harm me that is beyond Your control.

Overcoming With God

Sickness, heartache, worries, or troubles will not get me down
Your grace will be sufficient for me.

When I walk though the valley, there will be flowers blooming,
Reminding me that You have been there before me.

Overcoming With God

When I am soaring with the eagles You will be there beside me
Showing me the high places where I can rest in your love.

Nothing shall ever separate me from your care,
No matter where I go You will be there.

 I Am Overcoming With God

And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, 
and by the word of their testimony;
Revelation 12:11a

  3. Beautiful poem, TERESA, and that's what all of us are about on this blog -- daily Overcoming With God, and encouraging others to do so as well! This poem touched my heart, but they all do!

  7. Wow Teresa, outstanding poem! Each one speaks to me a little differently, but more profoundly and uniquely. This one is especially touching and a treasure, thanks so much for sharing this :)

    Love how you connected the name of the blog in between stanzas, PERFECTLY done! Thanks for always being real in your poetry and for the encouragement you write so beautifully, you describe the relationship between us and God exactly as it should be....filled with grace, holiness, romance, trusting, and unconditional love. Hugs and blessings, Kara

    1. KARA this poem was written especially for my sweet sisters on here. I wrote it and included it with their Christmas presents. I feel God is using OWG to help encourage people that are down or discouraged or lonely. With His help we can become Overcomers, there is nothing too big for GOD!

      Thank you for your lovely posts, you are a beautiful person inside and out.

  8. So good to see that poem of yours on here TERESA!! So perfectly apt for the Blog with what we ALL desire to do... 'OVERCOME all things, with the grace and LOVE of our Saviour and Lord.

    You know just how much that poem blessed me when I first read it... and how it came at a time when I was needing to be reminded of those words... and how God reached down and touched me that day to do just that, helping me to OVERCOME by being there with me in the valley and with the outpouring of His love!

    Thank you for being His instrument dear Teresa! God bless you! xx

    1. NOELA I am so glad that God is an On Time God. He has already seen and taken care of any problem we may have in our life. We just have to trust him. And when He has done something for us we should praise Him for what He did. I love that scripture I added at the end of my poem. We can OVERCOME anything satan sends our way by Jesus' blood and our testimony.

      Thank you dear Noela for your sweet words. :)

  9. Beautiful Theresa! I loved the part that says "in the valley's" AND "when soaring with eagles". The good or the bad He is ALWAYS there! We call on Him when we are down, but sometimes we forget that He is also there during the high points of our life as well... We must thank Him at ALL times...

  10. Theresa, I love your poems! You are really good. I used to write poems a lot. Especially in cards I sent to loved ones. Not so much anymore. We do have many in our big family who writes poems. The ones that inspire me most is the Christmas Poem letters that my step-daughter write every Christmas. Has for years! Wish she'd put them in a book. They are always about our LORD. Like you authors, she said GOD just gives her the words every Christmas! Such a blessing, as are yours!
