You and I may or may not know each other, we may be very close or complete strangers. We may never meet or it could be that you and I have known each other for our entire lives.
One day you are going to come against me, you are going to hurt me, you are going to cause pain. You might cause physical pain, emotional pain or a combination of both. It might be that you come against the ones that I love, my family and friends. Your actions may lead to my life being on the brink of destruction.
With all of that said I have made a decision. A decision of grace, a decision of mercy, a decision to forgive forward, a decision to give you a second chance. It may be days, weeks, months, years, decades before you come against me. Today, right here in this moment I choose to give you what is so freely given to me, a second chance.
Every breath we take is a second chance from above. We were made to love but have and will continue to fall short of that. The best we can do is love the Lord our God with all of our heart, soul and mind and love each other as we love ourselves.
So who would you give a second chance to?

“Forgiving Forward” is unleashing a revolution. Forgiven and free, people are helping liberate others through the protocols of forgiveness. God is looking for partners to deliver this transformational truth. You can join him and rescue people from the pain of torment – once and for all!!! http://www.forgivingforward.com/index2.html
“People of the Second Chance” gives voice to a scandalous movement of radical grace in life and leadership. We challenge the common misconceptions about failure and success and stand with those who have hit rock bottom in their personal and professional lives. We are a community that is committed to stretch ourselves in the areas of relational forgiveness, personal transparency, and advocate for mercy over judgment.
We are not ashamed of our scars, wounds, or failures and leverage them as a source of strength and character development.
People of the Second Chance have experienced a second chance so we actively support social justice organizations and advocate for the vulnerable, forgotten, and left behind.
We are People of the Second Chance.
