God Is A God Of Second Chances

Albert Einstein wrote a letter to his son~ Eduard. His advice was ~ "Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving." The advice was wise and practical that the great physicist passed on to his boy.

Sort of reminds me of the Christian walk. When I gave my heart to Jesus it was forever. So ~ by faith, I keep moving ahead even when life is painful. We all have those little slivers in life that just keep us on our knees.

Sometimes in the Christian walk, we as Christians experience personal failure and lose our balance and fall. But GOD~ in His goodness is waiting to pick us up and get us moving again. The only true failure in the Christian walk is staying down and no longer moving ahead in the spiritual life.

God records a few blunders for us to realize that we to need a forgiving Saviour. Abraham lied to Pharaoh about Sarah. Jacob lied to his father to steal his brother's birthright. Moses didn't stick with God's plan by striking the rock. You know what? In spite of their blunders, this is what God had to say about them.

Hebrews 11:39

 And these all, having obtained a good report through faith,

Even though these people fell ~ they repented and turned back to God and kept moving forward in their spiritual walk. They served a God of second chances.

Guess what? He is a God of third and fourth chances too!

You are so right. All fall. None of us are immune to failures. That is why we read the Bible, pray, repent, always moving forward to find God's best.
God loves us. He knows how to help us, too.

What a precious reminder. None of us are perfect, and we won't be this side of heaven. Even though we are to STRIVE to be like Jesus, we are human. Thank God He loves us anyway. He never gives up on us. What a Savior!!

Amen sister. There have been days this past year where I didn't know if I could even walk another day. Satan has a way of using weaknesses in us and our children to try and destroy families. Thankful that God has never left us. He has carried me completely this past year.
