who are tormented by their past failures and
mistakes; or who are stuck in the past, dwelling
on their mistakes.You don't have to be defined by your past mistakes.
God forgives - move on to your second chance, second act.
A blow-up, mess-up or slip-up in your life may attract you to this title as it did me. Jeffress uses an easy-to-follow "Life is a Performance" theme to share his belief that as long as you are still breathing, you have TIME to recover from your failure.
The author shares insights of hope through personal experiences, well-known events, secular and biblical, and numerous quotes from well-respected people and scripture to show the reader mistakes are inevitable, but forgivable, no matter their nature or degree.
The book's format is user-friendly for reviewing 8 questions for each of the 8 chapters for personal reflection and midcourse correction.
The author suggests 4 truths about God's role in our failures and offers God's 5 principles as steppingstones to success in a non-preachy way. For example, chapter 6 states that Intermissions are simply commas, no periods, in our life story--and shows it varied from 7 weeks for Peter, 3 years for Paul, and 70 years for the Israelites.
The acrostic for MISTAKES may help you learn from yours, and the prayer on page 71 may grand you peace.
I gleaned many nuggets that were worth the price of this book, including one on page 87: Go to one or two of your closest friends and say, "I respect your wisdom and know that you care about me. If you ever see me about to make a big mistake in any area of my life--career, family finances, or my relationship with God--I hope you'll tell me ahead of time."
I wonder what nuggets YOU will find in this great book? Perhaps the author's single-most liberating truth?
