Mandisa - "Unfinished" (Story Behind the Song)

Out of the ashes of doubt, depression, and shame, Mandisa is candid with us as she talks about the dark origins of her single, "Unfinished".  Causing all things to work together for good, God is teaching the singer that He's not done with her (or us) yet!


"Unfinished" LYRICS:
Not scared to say it
I used to be the one
Preaching it to you
That you could overcome
I still believe it
But it ain’t easy

‘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’ll celebrate the truth
His work in me ain’t through
I’m just unfinished

I know His 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 it

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


He started something good
And I’m gonna believe it
He started something good
And He’s gonna complete it
So I’ll celebrate the truth
His work in me ain’t through
I’m just unfinished
So I’ll celebrate the truth
His work in me ain’t through, no

He’s still working
Still, still working on me
