"For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the LORD that hath mercy on thee" (Isaiah 54:10).

How many times in your life have you wished to go back in time to do something over? Maybe you wouldn't have bought that expensive car, chosen that college, or passed up an opportunity to tell someone about Jesus. All of us would like a "do over" in something.

Praise God, He is a God of second chances. He forgave David of his sin with Bathsheba and continued to use him as king over Israel. After Moses tried to deliver God's people his way, God brought Moses back to Egypt to lead His people to the Promised Land. Jonah reached the sinful city of Ninevah with the message of repentance after first disobeying and running away from God.

If you feel like a homeschooling failure, this message is for you. Don't give up! Pray and ask the Lord to show you how to homeschool. Try a different curriculum or change your daily schedule. Homeschooling is flexible. Start over and find a routine that works for your family. God will help you again. "It is of the LORD's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness" (Lamentations 3:22-23).

Jesus, my heart cries out to You today. I've been homeschooling on my own for too long. Show me again the right way to teach my children. In Your name, Amen.
