On the evening of June 7, 2017, many Americans were touched and tears started streaming down their faces as they listened to the words of a song written by and presented on the stage of America’s Got Talent by Mandy Harvey.  The title of the song was “TRY.”  The words presented her life story of not giving up, even when she lost her hearing through a physical illness at the age of 18.  At first, she wanted to give up on her life dream as a singer, but then she made the decision not to give up.

Far too many people choose to give up when facing a whole host of life difficulties.  Their big dreams quickly become unaccomplished goals.

Many Christians have given up on themselves due to poor financial choices rather than learning from their choices and moving forward by doing it God’s way.  I’ve known many who, even with the awareness that the tithe belonged to the Lord, chose to keep that 10% of income for themselves.  Over time, many will start being convicted about their unfaithfulness to give the Lord what He desires of them. Instead of responding in faithfulness, they hold their guilt and don’t see that the way forward is to TRY!

The lyrics of the song “TRY” go like this:

I don’t feel the way I used to

The sky is grey much more than it is blue

But I know one day I’ll get through

And I’ll take my place again.


If I would try

If I will try.


Oh, there is no

One for me to blame

Cause I now the

Only thing in my way


Is ME!


I don’t live the way I want to

That whole picture

Never came into view

But I’m tired getting used to

The DAY!


So I will try

So I will try

If I would

If I would try, to …

If your spiritual life seems grey instead of blue, make a decision today to start giving God His tithe instead of living on it.  In other words, TRY!  God can be counted upon and is always there for you. What He desires of you is simply to TRY!

In Malachi 3:10 (NASB), we find,Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be food in My house, and test Me now in this,’ says the Lord of hosts, ‘if I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you a blessing until it overflows.’”

Before Mandy Harvey presented her song on America’s Got Talent, she told her story of losing her hearing.  She said that one of the saddest things was when she could no longer hear the sound of the words of her father.  

Be encouraged through the words of the song.  Be encouraged to TRY life God’s way and look forward to hearing the Heavenly Father’s words, “Well done, good and faithful servant.”  In Matthew 25:23 (NASB), we find the words,  His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful slave. You were faithful with a few things, I will put you in charge of many things; enter into the joy of your master.’”

So I will try

So I will try

If I would
