The God of Second Chances

I love Spring.
And I love Summer.
And I love Fall.
Wish I could say the same for winter!

For many people, Spring is often about new life and a fresh start. Which interestingly enough, isn't the New Year, a few short months ago, about new beginnings?
I guess we can't be given enough opportunities to start anew.

I think we can all appreciate a "do-over"

do-over
noun
1. a chance to redo an action
2. alluding to going back in time

This Spring, I am thankful that God allows "do-overs".
No matter how many times I fail, He is faithful to pick up the pieces and give me another try. And on top of that, He is willing to step in and do it for me if I would just let Him!

"You see the depths of my heart and You love me the same"
(Indescribable by Chris Tomlin)


I need that kind of love...unconditional.
We all do.

Let's remember this week what Easter is all about. God's love for us expressed through His sacrifice and the life He has offered us through His resurrection.
(Check out Alicia's post

Whether it be a new beginning,
a fresh start,
a do-over,
a mulligan...
the God of second chances is desiring to pour out His love on us no matter how many times we have let both Him and those around us down.


Doesn't that just put a smile on your face?

I am so glad that God allows do overs. I have needed my fair share of them. Thanks for that great reminder today!
