Good Morning Friend,
I have great news for you. God is not mad at you. He is a God of second chances. This Monday morning, you get a do-over. The past week’s failures are behind you and you have a clean slate. Won’t you take this opportunity to create a new beginning?
I have been watching the Olympics and one story touched my heart. Miguel Duran Navia’s dream appeared to end before it started when he was seemingly disqualified from the men’s 400 meter freestyle. Swimming has a no-false-start rule, meaning anybody who false starts is disqualified and out of the race. While waiting for the gun to start the race, Navia started to rock forward and fell into the pool, but some Olympic judges with kind hearts gave him a second chance. Even though Navia didn’t win the race, he got to fulfill his dream of swimming in the Olympics.
Friends, can you imagine how much God wants you to succeed? How much He wants you to try again? How much he wants you to see life as an adventure to be savored and enjoyed? If painting is your passion, do it! If losing weight is your challenge, give it another try. If you have failed in the past, the Judge is giving you a second change. And his heart is filled with compassion when you slip-up. Just don’t give up!!! This is your life. Live it with enthusiasm and joy. Linda
