A toast to second chance

How do you turn wrong into right? It is very hurtful to oneself and others that look up to you when you fall short of the expectations. So what do you do when this happens? Obviously it is not the end of the world, and what has happened can never be undone.

As much as it is true that you cannot undo a mistake, it is surely time to take responsibility of the situation and make it better. First of all you have to accept the mistake and be able to move past it.

The more you dwell on it the more it keeps haunting you and will not be able to get over it. Be mature about it and decide to move on. It is never that bad. Every mistake is an opportunity to become a better person IF you learn from it.

As much as I would like to condemn a wrongdoing I am just not in the place to. Jesus himself said to the scribes about a woman who was caught in adultery,” if any one of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone”. Apparently nobody did. Our guilty conscience always convicts us.

Our goal should be to better ourselves and to live at peace with everyone. Once bitten twice shy. Learn from your mistakes and pick yourself up and move on instead of beating yourself up for it. It does not do you any good.

God that grants us mercy is always forgiving and ready to give second chances. Remember the two thieves that were crucified with Jesus? The moment the thief on His right confessed to his sins and asked for forgiveness, it was a gateway to heaven. He was forgiven right there and then.

What if Jesus would have to ask the thief to go back and return everything that he had stolen from the people first then come back and ask for forgiveness? The thief being stuck on the cross would not have received eternal life with Jesus. Jesus is our hope and forgives as we come. He says we do not know what we are doing.

Glory be to God.

What gives you hope when you are down?
