From Mike and Kelly Bowling's album Faith to Believe
"God's Not Through with You"
You might be looking failure in the eye
You're sure you want to give up, you've lost the will to try
Everything you've planned has come apart
You're through with starting over
You're running out of heart
God's not through with you
He's got a work only you can do
Don't fall for Satan's lies
God's hand is still on your life
Oh no, God's not through with you
I'm here to say that God believes in you
It doesn't matter what you've done
Jesus died for you
So give it all and don't hold back a thing
You might be surprised at the good that God can bring
Okay - I'm not sure who to reference/cite for copyright reasons.
But I tried with the album reference above. :)
I heard this song going to work this morning.
And I LOVED it.
Sometimes it is hard to "not" feel like a failure as a Christian.
And sometimes when everything that "I" have planned is not working out -
It does seem like that I am "running out of heart"
I do not remember ever hearing this exact phrase before.
But it so eloquently captures an emotion that I have felt.
It is reassuring to know that God is not finished with "me"
I am thankful that His hand is still on my life.
I had several reminders of that truth this week.
He answered a desperate prayer.
He protected me from lightning pops in our office at work.
And I could go on...
But it is one minute after midnight.
And I have to work tomorrow,
Plan for a one-night round trip to VA
Will be LATE in the AM arriving home.
Praying for traveling grace.
One more aside, my niece started K5 today - well yesterday as of now.
She cried, and I am remembering the scary days when I wanted to stay
at home with my mama instead of go to school.
I love being a mama's girl.
Time to shut down iTunes, close blogger, and give this laptop a rest.
Remember - God's not through with you yet!
