One day last week I wrote a post about Second Chances and referenced Betty’s Wise Hearted blog about the second chance offered her son and his wife Gracie (they were marrying each other again). It turned out to be one of those posts which struck a chord in some and spiked a wild hair in me.

So I wrote a few personal emails to some fellow bloggers (because I know some of their story) asking them to submit a post on when they were offered a Second Chance by God. They have all agreed to do so. But then I thought it would be really cool to ask for any of you to write about your Second Chance. It may be recovery from an addiction; a second chance at love; a second chance at ministry; or some other event in your life.

I’m going to start it with one of my own Second Chance stories next week. I will intersperse the guests with my own posts throughout the next couple of weeks. If you would like to write a post on your Second Chance, please let me know. You can contact me in the comment area or send me a personal email at I’ll send you the guidelines (all two of them). 🙂

I’d love to hear your story if you care to share it. And who knows? Maybe someone else will benefit from your story.

  1. I feel like my entire life is a second chance. I had several chances to know the Lord. I had a second chance at my employer and made the best of it.

    What a wonderful idea and so like Him to encourage us with one another’s stories of second chances!

  7. Second chances continue to be awarded all through my life. Family, friends, my marriage, church, career, etc. But, most of all I’m grateful that God never ticks off that second chance. He gives me an infinite number of second chances, for He is the One I’ve most often failed!
