“Easter is very important to me, it’s a second change.” — Reba McEntire
I personally had a great a Easter weekend, above all it was a beginning of New things for me as I finally got to be baptised in the name of the Father, son and the holy spirit . After this encounter I got myself thinking of how much we fail God, Parents, friends and ourselves in the journey of our lives. But from this past Easter weekend I learned from Our Lord and Saviour about second chances. God is not only the God of second chances; He is the God of another chance. This is good news because most of us mess up the second chance fairly quickly. One of the amazing facets of God’s character is His incredible patience with us. Psalm 86:15 says it well: “But you, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness.” Micah 7:18 says, “Who is a God like you, pardoning iniquity and passing over transgression for the remnant of his inheritance? He does not retain his anger forever, because he delights in steadfast love.
If the God we fail daily is able to give us another chance being patient with us. Why are we not patient and resistant towards giving people or ourselves another chance.
How many times have you neglected a goal just because of one failure, how many times have you neglected a dream just because it seems to be taking longer than expected, how many times have you given up on yourself just because of one setback?
The main question today is how many times has God neglected you after you failed him probably more than once? The answer is Never, he has never but He is patient and persistent with everyone.
The Bible is full of people who received second chances, and even third and fourth chances: Peter, Jonah, Mark, Samson, David, and others. All trophies of God’s grace.
Just as God is patient and forgiving, He wants His children to be patient with and forgiving of others and towards themselves.
Look back at your past failures be it your goals, all your forgotten dreams, neglected ideas, neglectedrelationships. Yes you know them. We don’t disagree you might have been the cause of all the failure, you might have failed yourself, people might have failed you while in the pursuit.
But my Dear friend I challenge you today to give yourself another chance. Give yourself another chance to make your dream a reality. Don’t allow a delay to become a denial. Raise the bar on yourself, increase your determination, and explode your drive. You will fail your way to success. Everything you experience can be used to grow through…not just to go through. Make your dream happen! You deserve it. Till next week. SIHLE GWEBU
