This morning I woke up excited about what the Lord will do in my life. Yes, the depression is lifted and I’m looking forward to the work He will do in me. My part is to sanctify Him in my heart and to fear only Him. “But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear” (1 Peter 3:15).
And then I listened to a song on the radio that felt like a confirmation and a hug, “Unfinished”. ‘Cause that world I painted, where things just all work out. It started changing and I started having doubts; And it got me so down. But I picked myself back up; And I started telling me; No, my God’s not done; Making me a masterpiece; He’s still working on me. He started something good And I’m gonna believe it; He started something good And He’s gonna complete it. So I celebrate the truth; His work in me ain’t through; I’m just unfinished.
I know it’s history, and the kind of God He is. He might make it a mystery, But He’s proving I can trust in Him. And yeah, I believe Him. So I can pick myself back up And keep on telling me; No, my God’s not done Making me a masterpiece; No, my God’s not done. Still workin’; Still, still workin’ on me. He’s still workin’; Still, still workin’ on me. Oh, yeah I’m just unfinished. “For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.” (Phil. 1:6)
The reason for my hope? I know where I will spend eternity; I know WHO holds my future; I know He will complete what He began in me and create in me a masterpiece for the works He planned for me before He breathed life into me. And any thoughts from the enemy contrary to God’s Word, I will toss out. I trust only in Him! “We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ” (2 Cor. 10:5).

I love that song! It’s such a great reminder for me when I feel hopeless. I’m glad He encouraged you through it this morning. 🙂
