Another Chance

I’m so sorry for what I’ve done
I’m so sorry, my heart is torn
I’m asking forgiveness
I’ve created a mess
This is not the first time
But the third
I should have learned my lesson
To ask for another chance
I’ve got a lot of nerves

But You’re not a God of limited chances
Your mercy endureth forever
If only I had made better decisions
If only I had listened
If only I had acknowledged You
And leaned not to my own understanding (Proverbs 3:5)

But now I’m in a bind
And I’m pleading one more time
Please forgive me
I am so sorry.

Insight
God is a God of many chances. 1 John 1:9 says If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteouness.

All I Have Is A Prayer

All I have is a prayer
That’s my scintilla of hope
In spite of all I’ve tried and done
I can get no where

God, your mercy is all I know
The time is almost near
For the verdict to e read
My prayer, please hear
Please give me one more chance

I don’t won’t to turn back
But it’s hard to move ahead
My chances are slime to get there
I need a miracle
And all I have is a prayer.

Scripture Reference:
Matthew 17:20
And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, if ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

Pray Like An Athlete Plays

The tennis player was one set from elimination
Yet, the score served as no intimidation
Her serves and volleys stayed in continuation
Like she was going to have a championship celebration

Similarly, in one NBA finals
The team was three games behind in best of seven
No team ever won from this far behind
Yet, the team leader played like games just started
Didn’t care about the score or time

Common traits I’ve noticed among great athletes
They don’t care how far behind in scoring they are
They don’t care what little time they got
They press forward like the game has just started
Determined to win in their hearts
They don’t let opponents intimidate them
I’ve seen great athletes almost loose
Only to come back and ultimately win

When it comes to prayer,
I aspire to pray like an athlete plays
Pray without ceasing
Don’t let Devil intimidate me into getting beaten

It doesn’t matter how bad it looks
It doesn’t matter about the time on the clock
If you wanna win; pray with all the strength you got
When it seems, there are no more good days
Pray like an athlete plays.
Scripture Reference
Philippians 3:14
I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
