Second Chances
By: Rick Flowers

There are many words coming to me today. Many thoughts and feelings and emotions because today could be the beginning of a new life, a second chance for someone we all know and love, a second chance love, and to live, and to learn.

A second chance to fulfill a purpose, a purpose not previously known or understood but, you have a chance to share a smile, a hug, some happiness, some compassion, a second chance to live, and to see how much you've grown.

God is the giver of second chances for we are all his children, his creation.
Created in his image to fellowship with him, to keep his light alive, never to go dim. What we do with that second chance is up to us, we have free will.

His hope is that we realize what we have been given and, use what we have been through to teach others. Teach them that, when you are traveling on this journey and he speaks to you, should you not hear, things happen in order that you do hear and, that you do listen and that you act according to his instruction. That you fulfill his purpose for your life

For some it is to preach and to be missionaries, for others it is to teach the children or work with the homeless or, perhaps to visit those lost in prison.

Some will be singers or entertainers; others will work with the dying.
Perhaps your second chance is to lend a hand to someone who's sad and crying or perhaps your second chance is to just be there for someone in need.
In their eyes you could be the only one who ever cared.

How many of us have no clue why we are here? We wonder aimlessly day after day after day hoping someone will come along and show us the way.

Pray that you never need a second chance for sometimes getting to that point can be very painful, very depressing and sometimes almost deadly.

Listen to the voice inside and follow its lead and that second chance that some of us get, you will never need.

Ricky, I liked 90% of your article! I think the last two sentences need restructuring, though. They may need a few commas, and I think it was a little confusing toward the end - mainly just the last two sentences. But the beginning and end were superb! May God continue to give you such insight and desire to write for Him. Sincerely, Dan Blankenship
