The overcoming spirit is neither cruel nor mean;
Not especially crude or rough.
Persevering, this spirit is tenacious and strong;
Well disciplined, determined and tough.


Such a one is steadfast in seeking wisdom and strength,
Nourished by courage and hope.
Armed with understanding that “can’ts” are just distractions;
That there are treasures to find and hold.


As Overcoming faces the challenges in life,
She sings a song that is true:
“Because God is my strength and I have power within,
I am, I can, I will, I do.”


Overcoming invites you to join in this cadence;
To make it your anthem, too:
Because God gives me grace and His wisdom shows the way,
I am, I can, I will, I do.”


I am;
I can;
I will;
I do!


*As hard as I tried, I couldn’t get this to be inclusive, so put your own gender in where this says, “she”:  These qualities apply to all overcomers.
