Still There

I gave God

half hearted prayers

with a divided focus.

I took back the control

I had been surrendering.

It was so unsatisfying,

even in the moment.

Yet still, God’s voice

Still spoke to me.

Even though I failed Him

and disappointed myself,

when I turned back to Him,

His grace was there.

His voice was still speaking.

His presence still strong.

God was there providing for Jonah

even after he disobeyed.

God was there for David

when he failed.

God was there for Peter

when he denied Christ.

God is still there for us too.

It is time to stop allowing

the enemy to use

our mistakes against us.

Repent and turn back to God.

About Jackie S

I have been through a lot in life, but through Christ I am more than an overcomer. I am not perfect, I will never claim to be. Praise God I am forgiven though. I am rather opinionated. I see most things in black and white and believe honesty is always the best policy. This combination sometimes comes off harsh. The truth is I love people. I truly love helping others and try to believe the best about others. It is easy to find faults, but focusing on strengths is more my style, but I also shoot it straight. If it sounds harsh, know my heart is for something better for you.
