God of a Second Chance

Dear God,                                                             

I am amazed that You are the God of a second chance!

Wow, what a promise expressed in Scripture.  “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.”  (Ezekiel 36: 26, NIV)

 You have never stopped working to soften my hard heart.

Thank You for NOT giving up on me.

A lot of people in my family, as well as my friends all agree on this one: “That person is hopeless. He/she will never turn around from that life of anger against everyone. It is a lost cause!”

Yes, I was considered by everyone to be past the point of no return.  Even within myself I knew there was no way that I could discover even a little bit of self-esteem.

AND THEN, Your unbelievable message hit me!  I could not believe it.   Now the light is breaking through the dark clouds.

Your loving ways have touched my heart of stone.  I am in awe at the new feeling sweeping over me.  I‘m accepting Your offer of salvation through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross. (Galatians 2:20)

I treasure the special promise in Scripture for a totally different outcome.  “My eyes are on the Lord, for only He will release my feet from the snare (trap)” (Psalm 25:15, NIV)

Please take care of me, God.  I really do need You.
