When God saw what [the Ninevites] did and how they turned from their evil ways, he relented and did not bring on them the destruction he had threatened. - Jonah 3:10 (NIV)

I used to think wrong turns in my life choices were irreversible. Growing up, I wasn’t allowed to change my initial decisions. I thought that God dealt with us the same way. But scripture reveals that God not only allows second chances but urges us to correct our unwise choices...

Today's Prayer
Forgiving God, help us to overcome any obstacles that prevent us from heading in the right direction. Amen.
