Jim and Norma: Second Chances

 
 
TheSingleBlessing.com - red rose signfies loveThe Word of God is filled with numerous accounts of second chances.  And yet today we continue to have the privilege of experiencing God’s amazing grace as He blesses us with second chances in our lives.
 
Jim and Norma met for a short period of time when they were in the third grade.  Over 40 years later, they met once again.  Both had endured the death of a loving spouse and often reflected on times past.  You see, when the time was right God provided a second chance for them to find love and comfort in each other.
 
The New Testament tells us how Jesus continually delivered second chances through faith.  The same faith that is “. . . the substance of things hoped for, [and] the evidence of things not seen.”  Hebrews 11:1
 
It was that faith that Jim and Norma held fast and close to their hearts.  As a result, God delivered unto them a second chance to love.
 
Our God is a loving God. He wants the best for us.  He wants us to live happy and productive lives.   He is a God of second chances, gracing us with brand new mercies each and every day.
 
So whatever it is that you're battling, remember, your life isn't over. Whether it’s a lack of employment, a health issue, a family situation, or being alone - - God is as real today as He was to Moses, Job and Paul.  He wants to heal your wounds, mend your heart and hold you close.
 
God hasn't given up on you. He continues to offer second chances - - you only have to accept His offer to be blessed.
 
 
 
TheSingleBlessing.com - Jim and NormaLove is patient and kind.  Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude.  It does not demand its own way.  It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged.  It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, or loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. I Corinthians 13:4-7 
(New Living Translation)
