Have you ever done something you were ashamed of? How did you respond afterwards? Did you openly admit your sin or did you try to pretend it never happened? Were others impacted by your actions?

In this week’s episode of All God’s Women, we look at Bathsheba, a woman caught in a scandalous situation. Was she an innocent victim or a willing participant? Either way, we can learn from her life’s experiences.

We serve a God of second chances. Whatever we’ve done in the past, however vile it might be, God always offer us the opportunity to come clean and start afresh. Sure, there will be consequences that we may live with for the rest of our lives. We may even deal with consequences of other people’s sins. But even those negative consequences can be used for God’s glory. 

God loves us. God loves you. 

You may have been in the wrong place at the wrong time. You may have given into temptation. You may have succumbed to someone stronger than you. You may have a long list of things you’ve done that you regret.

Perhaps you’re thinking that you’re too far gone, that the consequences are too great. But please know. You’re never too far gone. God is always there with open arms waiting for you to turn around and return to Him. Don’t wait. Today is the day to start anew.
