Can one who has fallen away be renewed?

Sat 27 Aug 1743: I reached Exeter in the afternoon; but as no one knew of my coming I did not preach that night, only to one poor sinner at the inn; who, after listening to our conversation for a while, looked earnestly at us and asked whether it was possible for one who had in some measure known ‘the powers of the world to come’ and was ‘fallen away’ (which she said was the case) to be ‘renewed again to repentance’. We besought God in her behalf and left her sorrowing; yet not without hope.
