Yesterday is in the history books. Did you get everything you wanted completed? Is there something you want to change from yesterday? Is there someone you forgot to call to check on or to say “I love you”? Good news for you, today you get another chance. Second chances are so undervalued and underappreciated. Second chances afford you with experience as you approach new opportunities. Do you get what I’m saying? You can try something again, but now you have more insight and knowledge about a situation or thing based on what you did the 1st time around. Don’t ever take a “2nd chance” for granted. For some you, that 2nd chance is an opportunity for a better relationship with a family member, an opportunity to apologize, a new job, a new lease on life, a pursuit of a dream or a goal.
Due to my imperfections, I’ve learned to appreciate 2nd chances (sometimes 3rd and 4th chances as well 😊). I don’t always get it right. I’m constantly relying on God’s mercy and forgiveness. I’m valuable in the eyes and heart of God, regardless of how many times it takes for me to “get it right”. He gives us limitless chances to be bless and to bless others. Don’t let yesterday’s failures or mistakes keep you from appreciating today’s new opportunities – your 2nd chance. We all do better when we know better!!! (Lamentations 3:21-23)
