“While we are often tempted to look back with regret for goals not reached, we would do better as we move into a new season.”

–T. J. Farr

Second Chance

If we might have a second chance

to live the days once more,

And rectify mistakes we’ve made

to even up the score,

If we might have a second chance

to use the knowledge gained,

Perhaps we might become at last

as fine as God ordained.

But though we can’t retrace our steps

however stands the score,

Tomorrow brings another chance

for us to try once more.”

–T. J. Farr

Providentially today, this poem slipped out of the bible as I was searching for Colossians 2:13-14 and it reads:

“You were dead…but God gave you life with Christ.  He forgave all our sins.  He canceled the record of our debts, those regulations which accused us.  He did away with all that and nailed it to the cross.”

Not a chance this is a coincidence, the poem and Word of the Lord from whom we are bestowed as many chances as we need in life.  Alleluia!
