The God of Endless Chances

Updated on April 13, 2014

Of infinite new beginnings.

Just a few short months ago I was movin enough dope everyday to over dose a giant. I was drivin around in stolen cars. I was beating people with either a lead pipe or a base ball bat. Breaking into houses and buildings, robbing people, scamming marks I could go on and on. I called myself a gangster but I was really just a minion of evil.

Today I can't get through the praise and worship part of the church service without standin there a full grown man with tears flowing. Some gangster huh?

When I was a young criminal I came to God and He forgave me. Then years later I turned my back on Him and returned to crime. After destroying my life completely I turned to God again and He forgave me again. Then three years later I once again turned my back on Him and returned to crime. Then again after destroying my life I reached out my hand to Him and He held it firmly. He holds it still.

He forgives and He forgives and He forgives! He forgives again and again yet people still hate Him. People still blame Him for all the world's and their own personal problems. Yet He still loves, He never stops forgiving. The God of endless chances of infinite new beginnings.

So I cry as I praise Him, I ball like a baby as I worship Him because I am amazed by His love.

      Awesome! What a loving God we have. Our experiences can give us the knowledge to help others by "having been there" you have a lot of hope to offer others.
