God is a God of Second Chances

Jessamine Anievas’ story is here to prove that.

Before she received a second chance from God, her life was a mess, and she felt the same way about herself, too.

She knew who Jesus is but had no personal relationship with Him. She felt He is too good to be true, and she was too wretched to be saved.

Everything changed when her husband, Rio, was jailed due to drugs.

Confused, devastated, angry, and lost, Jessamine didn’t know how to raise their child alone, especially since she didn’t have a job.

If you were in her shoes, what would you do?

Jessamine couldn’t do anything because she was crippled by all her problems coming at once.

But God did something.

She chanced upon one of the episodes of The 700 Club Asia and was surprised to hear that most of the testimonies reflected her story!

Like a beacon of light in the darkest of times, The 700 Club Asia sparked hope in Jessamine to believe again—to believe that God is the God of second chances, and it’s not too late for them.

“I found hope that our family would be complete again,” she recalled.

Jessamine gave her life to Jesus. She accepted Him as her Lord and Savior, and she was never the same.

She wanted the same thing to happen to her husband, but little did she know, God has already met Rio where he was—inside his prison cell.

While in prison, Rio repented and called on God day and night, asking for strength.

Pastors visited Rio and his cellmates to preach and to read the Bible for them. That was when he realized how great God’s grace was—enough for Him to give Rio a second chance at life.

Who would have thought that all this happened 5 years ago?

Now, Jessamine and Rio serve at a local church, where they grow spiritually, emotionally, mentally, and even financially. Rio is currently working as a driver, while Jessamine has a work-from-home job.

It’s inspiring to see that God can use one episode to give someone a second chance.
