Do you ever feel as though mistakes you've made in the past are irreparable? No matter what you try to do to amend the situation, there's something inside of you that reminds you of your error. Every now and then, many people are guilty of throwing themselves a pity-party. This type of party focuses on mistakes, self-doubt, and self-pity. Anyone who has ever had one of these parties knows it's no fun to be in. The problem with pity-parties is that it keeps you focused on the problem rather than the solution. Whenever the problem is elevated above the solution, you'll miss the lesson learned and fail to see what God has for you.
Second chances are a beautiful thing to experience when you've messed up and been given another chance to make it right. Have you ever been in a situation that seemed impossible, hopeless, and irresolvable and the one who was offended/hurt by you decided to offer you another chance? For those who've never experienced new beginnings, you can't understand this, but for those who've been given chance after chance to make it right, this will be embraced. I want you to know that many people in this world don't often give second chances, but in the spiritual world, God will allow you another chance to correct yourself.
In this spiritual journey, you need to know that God loves you so much that He gives you opportunities to fix what's wrong. In other words, the reason you're reading this message is because God held back your night so that you can get it right. God has given you another opportunity to worship Him in spirit and in truth. Whatever you've been telling yourself you want to correct, God has provided you with the tools to do it. What are you waiting on? Life is too short to have pity-parties because pity-parties don't fix anything; it only adds fuel to it. Please don't miss this. The enemy wants you to have a pity-party because a pity-party keeps you down, when God wants to pick you up.
The Bible tells us when Jesus was at the hour of betrayal, He told Peter, "Assuredly, I say to you that this night, before the rooster crows, you will deny Me three times." Peter, the chief disciple, refused to accept Jesus' words, but later in the Gospel story, Peter would cave in to the pressure around him and deny Jesus. Realizing what he had done, Peter wept bitterly. However, the good news is that Peter was given a second chance. Peter was forgiven and restored. Instead of kicking him at his lowest point, God picked him up. That's my word for you. You've been given another chance - don't waste it. Learn from what you did wrong and commit yourself to doing all that God has called you to do. Ask God for forgiveness and He'll grant it to you - then forgive yourself.
