‘Lord, Make Your Ways My Ways’—17-Year-Old Wows ‘American Idol’ Judges With Original Song About Struggling With Sin

In a post from November 2022, Jeffries shared a different original song that focuses on “the misconception I had of God and Christianity.” She used to think she was only “loved by God while in the church,” was “a flaw in Gods design,” and was damned “to hell for all my wrong doings [sic].” 

“I have never been more glad to be so wrong. [God’s] love isn’t paper thin. It’s not confined to stay between four walls. We feel we have no worth but God thought we were worth dying for,” she continued. “As [Christians] no sin can keep us out of heaven. And no sin can keep [us] from the love and forgiveness of God, who is omnipresent.”

“We shouldn’t use grace as an excuse for sin,” she concluded, “but we shouldn’t use sin as an excuse not to forgive.”
