I Failed God So Many Times

I Failed God So Many Times

I failed God so many times

“I failed God so many times.”

That’s what Chance the Rapper said in an interview with Complex. It’s a line that has stuck with me since I first heard it earlier this year.

In life, we often struggle to find the right words to express an idea or feeling that seems too big for us to put into words. That feeling of inadequacy can make it hard for us to share what we have experienced with others. However, when someone does come along and speak those words out loud…it can be life-changing. In my opinion, that is exactly what Chance did here by using his platform as one of hip-hop’s most popular artists and voicing his own insecurities as they relate to faith—the thing he values most above all else but also struggles with believing in sometimes because he sees himself as unworthy at times.

So how do we reconcile these two sides? How do we move forward when faced with situations where our trust fails us time after time? Do we give up on ourselves and let go of our faith altogether? Or does God still love us even though we don’t always believe him?

I was bad at believing God, but I still loved him.

It’s not a matter of knowing, it’s a matter of believing.

I believed in him, but I did not believe in myself.

Me and the Lord, we got a real good thing going on.

Your relationship with God is not something you can share with anyone else. It’s not something you can talk about with anyone else, and it’s definitely not something you should share on social media.

Your relationship with God is personal, like all your relationships are supposed to be. If you need help in this area, spend some time alone with God and let him fill up your heart until there is nothing left of yourself but love for him and his Son Jesus Christ.

At the end of the day, my faith is something that only I can answer for.

If a person is not interested in hearing your message, then they will not hear it. They may listen to what you are saying and even nod their head, but if it does not resonate with them internally, then nothing can be done about that. I have tried many times to force others into believing in God, only to find out later that they were not ready for it yet.

However, at the end of the day my faith is something that only I can answer for. It doesn’t matter how many people believe in God or don’t believe in him because at the end of the day he’s going to judge me based on my actions and how honest I was with him during those times when I felt like giving up on everything and everyone else around me just so i could get away from this world full of hatred & wariness towards each other over something as simple as skin color or religious beliefs etc….

Sometimes I think that maybe there’s no such thing as sin.

If the thought of sin, or God’s wrath in general, leaves you feeling like a disappointed parent who has to ground their kid for ruining the family car again, let me assure you that your experience is not unique. It doesn’t matter how old we get or what kind of accomplishments we make in life; we are still sinners who have failed God time and time again.

The idea of sin can seem overwhelming when it comes to our personal lives because there are so many ways for us to hurt people every day. It doesn’t matter if it’s by screaming at someone out of anger or lying about where we were last night after losing track of time—we all fall short on occasion and do things that go against what God wants from us as his children. When this happens, our relationship with him becomes strained because he sees how far away from him we really are despite how hard we try not to disappoint him by doing bad things (or worse yet: continuing doing bad things).

The Lord works in mysterious ways, even when you’re failing him.

  • God is always with you. He’s always listening, and he will never leave you.
  • God is always forgiving you. Even when it seems like your sins are too great for him to forgive, he will still take them away and give you another chance at life—an opportunity that isn’t available to anyone else on Earth.


I still love the Lord. I don’t know if there’s another way to say it, but I’m still here and I’m still trying. The more time passes and the more things change, though, it’s hard not to think back on these days when everything was so new and exciting—like when we first met each other at that church barbecue last summer.
