Being Thankful ~ Monday Blues
I’ve been trying to compile the songs we have written into a hymnal, and the first one is Sarah’s song Another Chance about a vine dresser going into the vineyard to prune the vines. He sees a branch that is withered and just as he is about to cut it off ~
‘I pulled out my shears and picked the branch up from the ground
When I felt Someone standing by my side
He took the vine with His nail-scarred hands and held it up
With tears He quietly looked into My eyes,
“Just one more chance; Please don’t give up so soon.
Just one last chance; I want this vine to give me precious fruit…”
So he does not prune the branch , he gives it another chance. That’s what forgiveness does. It gives us another chance; a fresh start.
