God Of The Second Chance

Personal Testimony




My son and I are estranged because of mistakes I unwittingly made as a teenage mother. He has been married 25 years and has no children. I finally gave my heart to the Lord years later and I asked my son to forgive me and admitted my wrongs and my regret of the past. Eventually, he said he did forgive me. He lives less than 30 minutes away but I only see him if I call him to meet me somewhere for lunch. A month goes  by sometimes without a call from him. Even though he forgives me, it doesn't change the fact that he no longer needs me to be a part of his life.

God blessed me 18 years ago with a godson, again 11 years ago, and again 3 years ago. God put so much of His love in me that it spills out onto these little godsons. There is nothing I wouldn't do for them and I've managed to always be there for them. ..In turn, they have brought me much joy!  Psalms 68:6….”God set the solitary in families…”

The Lord opened my heart and my eyes to see:

"One hundred years from now....
It will not matter what my bank account was,
The sort of house I've lived in,
Or the kind of car I drove,
But the world may be different,
Because I was important in the life of a CHILD"

(by unknown)

Yes, I consider these last years a gift from God. He truly is the “God of the 2nd chance”. Joel 2:25-26 says, “And I will restore to you the years that the locust has eaten….And you shall eat in plenty and be satisfied, and praise the name of the Lord, your God, who has dealt wondrously with you…”.
