“You decide every moment of every day: Who you are and what you believe in. You get a second chance, every second.”
He has redeemed my soul from going down into the pit,
and my life shall look upon the light.’
29 “Behold, God does all these things,
twice, three times, with a man,
30 to bring back his soul from the pit,
that he may be lighted with the light of life.
God is the Man of Second Chances.
Look around you and see the many lives in the world who have been changed and transformed by His grace and love alone. When I think about the People of the Second Chance movement and every life that has been given a second chance, I know that wouldn’t be possible without God and the incomparable way He forgives without fail. Regardless of what we do, how far we stray away from Him, or how badly we believe we have hurt Him, He is there patientily waiting for us.
How many people in your life would do the same? The truth is, no one else will. Not because they aren’t capable, but because they won’t.
We are broken. Yet, some how and in some way, God takes our broken pieces and makes us whole. He makes us new.
God gives us a second chance at life.
Having been a person who effortlessly, without fail, have given people from my past a second chance, it doesn’t compare to the second chance that God has given me. No other person can or will love and forgive us the way He loves and forgives, they can’t. He has given me a chance to get things right and to set a path in my life that matters now. Not that my path prior didn’t matter, but this path now has a purpose. God is the Man of second chances and there is no greater truth than that.
How has God given you a second chance?
