Disappointed, I left for my next appointment. Whilst driving there, I realized the place I was heading to, has a canteen and that I had a lunch voucher from their previous promotion. As I reached into my bag, I pulled the voucher out and saw it had expired! It would be useless to reason with the employee so I bought myself lunch and waited for my friends to show up.
Sometimes in life second chances don’t come so easily. You can reason your way; you can try your chances but often you’ll hear people say:
'If you missed it that is your problem.’
‘If you made a mistake that is your fault.’
‘If you messed up why should we trust you again?’
However, when we succeed in securing a second chance, there is always a condition attached to the “new acceptance”.
God on the other hand always forgive and does not remember our transgressions hence HIS acceptance has no conditions. When we confess our sins and seek a new start, HE will be first person to hear us and HE jump at the opportunity to save us from the misery of rejections. He will heal our discouraged hearts and help us start afresh again.
The Lord is near the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit.
