i want a “DO OVER”

original creation date: 01.04.08

There’s this new comedy by the name of Samantha Who? And they say that’s it’s the #1 comedy on TV right now. As a viewer of the show I’m not surprised, Samantha was granted what I call a “DO OVER” in life. She’s been able to start her life all over again…kinda; after a freak accident she has amnesia & doesn’t remember the type of person she used to be which was mean, manipulative and shallow. If anyone got in her way of something she wanted she would make a way to get it at the expense & sacrifice of others. Now that she has amnesia and doesn’t remember who she used to be she now acts the way she really is on the inside which is a considerate, goofy and loving person.

Every now and again she goes somewhere or meets someone who remembers her “bad deeds” and they hold her to it even though she doesn’t remember and she’s turned over a new leaf. Like the time she tried to go see a hockey game and didn’t know she was banned from the arena because of the time she went in a wheelchair just to get a front row seat. Nevertheless Samantha tries her best to live her life anew with her past behind her with a clean slate, pushing forward to enjoy life as she can create it.

This reminds me of what Jesus does for people (and has done for me). That no matter what we did before or how we treated other people or even ourselves, when we accept Him into our life we are able to have a clean slate in life and are granted a DO OVER! Other people or even you may remember what you did or how you used to be but in Christ you are a brand new person and get to start life all over again. The best part about it is that you have the ability to recreate and reinvent yourself. Any insecurities, generational issues, former hurts and inadequacies are a thing of the past.

No wonder the show is so popular…who wouldn’t want a DO OVER in life?!
The truth of the matter is Jesus is still doing the same thing He was doing when He was on the earth, granting DO OVERS. Why don’t you let Jesus grant you a DO OVER right now?
Prayer: Jesus I believe You are the Son of God and that You died and was buried and rose again for me. Come into my heart, I make You my Lord & Savior. Forgive me of all my sin and wipe away my shame give me a new life in You and for You. Amen!

A simple prayer (when you believe with your heart) can grant You a DO OVER in life, make the best of it. Lightning may not have struck and you may not feel any different on the outside but on the inside you’re a new creation…make your outside new too! Love God and serve Him with the help of the Holy Spirit and I promise you life will never be the same. (II Corinthians 5:7, Acts 1:8, Romans 12:2, Hebrews 13:8 NIV)
