2nd Chances Plus Some

God's forgiveness is unlimited.
There's no such thing as only a 2nd chance with God, because there's no cap on His forgiveness.

We can't put a limit on His forgiveness, because it's unlimited.

If we threw up all the numbers forever and got different sums, we would still be unable to come up with any sum that would determine how many times Jesus forgives us for our sins, our errors, our mistakes. 

Isn't that amazing? 

Isn't is great to know that although people will hold us accountable for our mistakes (even though they also make their mistakes), that Jesus forgives us before we even make them...because He knows we will make them? How many people do we know who would do that? 

Some of us think we're better, because our mistakes (sin) are different than another person's, but there's no difference. Sin is sin. Mistakes are mistakes. A woman can't be a little pregnant. She either is or she isn't. We have to just be straight up about things and stop thinking we get a pass and the other person doesn't. I thank God that He doesn't work that way.

"If we claim we have not sinned, we make God out to be a liar."1

God knows it all and although He allows certain events to happen, He protects us in the process. It's not the end. We can regroup and use our mistakes to help others. If we don't do that then what was the point of it all? So we can change and that's it? No, that change isn't only for us. It's for others to see God and to be helped through their stumbles, so they know they're not alone, and that God will also forgive them.

He has no favorites. 

So when we mess up, repent (apologize to God, to the person or the people), ask for God's forgiveness,2 and God forgives us. If it's too late to apologize to the person then tell God about it and He will give you the peace to move on. Then we will be free to go forth and multiply (help others), because at the end of the day that's why we're all here. Besides God's love us for, that's part of the reason He also forgives us.

I feel free

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. How are you feeling today? What kind of head space have you been in lately? I ask, because I'm just wondering if anybody feels like me -- free like me. Free as an eagle. Free as can be. That's right, out with doing business the old stale way and in with a fresh new operation. It's a shifting happening in the atmosphere of Sharon's life and I'm moving on to the big and awesome things God has for me. What  do you say for yourself? What are you speaking over your life? What it is for you?  For me, I am no longer afraid to go out in the deep end. I am no longer afraid to fly higher, I am no longer concerned about what I have or do not have, and I am no longer concerned about what anybody thinks or says. Who the heck cares anymore? I don't. Because God tells me he doesn't give me a spirit of fear or timidity ( 2 Timothy 1 :7) , but He gives me a spirit of love, confidence, power, self-control, and

Protecting My Peace - Day 98 - Momentum and Movement, That’s What's Up

Click to listen to current podcast episode. “Never Giving Up” are power-words — strong affirmations that give us momentum and movement. That’s what’s up. We can do so much more in our lives when we have momentum and movement. It’s about standing, literally and not sitting or laying around feeling sorry for ourselves. I used to do that once upon a time and that sorrowful thinking is for the birds. We don’t have to be down. We can get up and get going even if we start small. In fact, I love starting small, because it helps set a firm foundation of habits and routines. Momentum and movement will help us get and maintain a position of strength to do what God says we can do.

God blesses whomever he wants to bless, whenever he wants to bless them

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. When I was going through a dark time -- when I had nothing -- there was a certain person who helped me sometimes. She helped me whenever she basically felt like it, but she did help, and for that I'm appreciative. But, something interesting happened after I started growing out of my despair. Something interesting started happening when I no longer needed her for anything. And something interesting happened even though I remained kind and grateful towards. The interesting thing that happened was that she started hating on me. She started treating me differently. At first I was really bothered by it, because I thought she and her husband were nice people I wanted in my life. I liked that they had a sense of compassion and were interested in helping people who were down and low. That really appealed to me, because I was raised that way; my mother was raised that way; her mother was raised that way, and it goes back to as fa
