I wasn’t always saved

but some one was watching and Some One was keeping me

I’ve always had a big heart, yet I was selfish too

Even though I had a varied vocabulary, I cursed like Peter

My focus was on creating my kingdom and not living for God’s Kingdom

I was short tempered and got angry easily

because I wasn’t always saved

but some one was watching and Some One was keeping me

I was nice yet I could be cruel at the snap of a finger too because I had that gear

When I could not have my way, I metaphorically and literally at times

stumped my feet and made my own way

not even the least bit concerned about God’s way

I wasn’t always saved

but some one was watching and Some One was keeping me

I always loved helping people, but I never saw it as ministry and God’s practicum for purpose

Sadie said “don’t’ live a life of regrets”

so now I am grateful for the life I lived before God saved me

because He was keeping me all along the way

He knew those watching me would see my transformation and His Glory simultaneously

He knew my heart would expand, growing big enough for His Kingdom assignments

because some one is always watching

Like Paul, He knew He would give me some blinding time so my selfishness would turn into self-less-ness and

He knew Pastor James Marshall would be along my journey to teach me about managing my emotions so I and my tongue would leave less and less dead bodies along my way

He knew that one day my way would be less of a concern and His way would be more of my deepest desire

He knew that to be in authentic relationship with Him, for me to know Him from the mountaintop

I had to grow in the valley of life

so that I could live a life worth honoring

I am still in the valley growing

with honor and sold out, Jesus freak, not turning back

service to and reverence for God, the One Who keeps me

Psalm 23:3 states “He renews my strength. He guides me along right paths, bringing honor to his name.”

some one is always watching

Is your life a life worth honoring

but more importantly

do you bring honor to His name?
