God is a god of second chances. He surprises us with another chance when we don’t expect it. My life has been full of these moments. We struggle with disappointment.. the hurt from those moments takes root in us.. we no longer believe that things can be different. It is so easy to decide not to try again..to take the easy way out..to believe that the past dictates the future.
All of this seems like a natural reaction to pain and wounding..but what about God? Is He even in this picture? Maybe you just see Him as so small or so distant that He is no help at all. He is neither of those things.. He is bigger than any picture you can paint of Him and closer to you than anyone else in the world. He sees inside you.. knows all the things that have hurt you and wants to give you opportunities to experience life in new and amazing ways. Does this mean that your life is going to be easy? No. It means that your life can be rich and full of possibilities. If means that you don’t need to give up. If you align yourself with the heart of God and seek Him and His path for your life.. He will give you second chances you never dreamed were possible.
You may have forgotten your deepest desires or decided that it is too late. God has not forgotten and it is never too late with Him. As long as you are here.. there is hope and anything is possible. Examine your heart.. take the areas of discouragement to Him.. pray unceasingly for what you are waiting for and let Him work. He has a plan for you and it is perfect!
” For I know the plans I have for you.. to give you a future and a hope!”
