Second Time Around

second time around 2

From the lyrics of Tuxedo, and the Beatles:

Second time around, hey! Second time around.
Second time around, hey! Second time around.

I think it is gonna get better, the second time around.
I think it is gonna get better, the second time around.

We can work it out.
We can work it out.

I imagine, in my own, colorful way, this is the way Christ sings to us when we get out of pocket.

He constantly reminds us, God is love (Psalm 130:7). Christ also reminds us, that God is our Father, and God wants us to be His children, His people. That God is always there to give us another chance (Micah 7:18-19).

Inspired by the scriptures of Hosea and Philemon referenced throughout my writing, I want you to think about your life, your testimony; How God reminds you that you are never far away; That He is always present, even in times you purposely ran away. Be it friend, family, stranger, a song, an Instagram post, a Bible verse to remind you – The Lord is with you.

He is never far off.

The greatness of God is this; He gives every opportunity for all of us to come to Him. He gives every opportunity for us to come back to Him.

So we need to start believing that we do deserve His forgiveness – why is that you say – we are in His image and He took care and respect to make us like Him (1 John 1:9).

He knows we are made of dust (Psalm 103:14); That we are dirty; That we do dirty things to others and ourselves. Before I tell on anybody else, I have to tell on myself first. Lord knows that I am quite the sandstorm for a few seasons here and there.

But He calls me back and helps me pick up the pieces. Even when I say never again; He still gives me another time around.

P.S. Accept God’s forgiveness. It is rude to decline a gift.
