Mandisa, “Unfinished”

Contemporary Christian singer Mandisa has released Unfinished, her new 2017 single, and the song has debuted at No.34 on Billboard’s Christian Songs chart with a bullet, which is seven notches higher than the previous No.41 that started off her last carrier single, the Grammy Award-winning Overcomer.

Written by Ben Glover, who co-wrote Mandisa’s two previous chart-toppers Stronger and Overcomer, and Colby Wedgeworth, Unfinished is, in Mandisa’s words, a song about “not wallowing in shame and regret, and start living lives of freedom, power, and authority.” She adds, “we do that by taking those destructive thoughts captive, and making them obedient to Christ (2 Corinthians 10:5).”

While as energetic as either Overcomer or Stronger, Unfinished has going for itself an extremely catchy chorus that will invite anyone to sing along, and a theme to which most people can relate. When it comes to making encouraging Bible-based go-get-’em songs, Mandisa in in a class of her own, and the confidence that she brings into this single belies the initial anxiety and hopelessness that come with facing the struggles that she and the rest of us often face in life. I’m confident Unfinished will be Mandisa’s next big hit, and its uplifting message of hope will definitely impact lives across the world.


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 proven I can trust in Him
And yeah, I believe it

Still working
Still, still working on me
He’s still working
Still, still working on me
