“A runner can never expect to win a race while looking back at ground he has already covered,” writes Robert Jeffress. Turning your messes into successes is the premise of Second Chance, Second Act.
Everyone makes mistakes. We all experience slip-ups, mess-ups, blow-ups, missed opportunities, and forfeited chances. Poor choices can look like moral failure, such as divorce, abortion, bankruptcy, difficult relationships, or ruined health. Welcome to life. While some people accept failures as a normal part of life, others become stuck in a mire of regret. This book is for those who desire to move forward but are confused about how to go about it.
“Remember, failure is not an event but a judgment about an event,” Jeffress says. “Unfortunately, we often make the wrong judgments about our failures, which causes us to wallow in them rather than learn from them.”
On a fast track to success, middle-aged Moses messed up when he killed an Egyptian (Exodus 2:11-15). Life as he knew it was over and he fled into the wilderness. After years of what Jeffress terms an intermission in Moses’ life, Moses returned to Egypt to lead his nation to freedom (Exodus 4:18-31). In a little over 100 pages, Jeffress encourages readers to confess the mess to the Divine Director of our life, receive forgiveness from the Lord, learn from mistakes, enjoy the intermission that often follows, and set a plan of specific action steps.
Chapter seven, “Begin Your Second Act Now,” is worth the price of the book. Throughout the pages are short insights that provide hope and encouragement. The eight-week guide for discussion and study included in the back of the book make this a life-changing Bible study to do with a partner or group. Second Chance, Second Act is for victims who want to become victorious.
The pastor of the 9,500 member First Baptist Church of Wichita Falls, Texas, Jeffress has written over a dozen books. One previous title, When Forgiveness Doesn’t Make Sense, is a helpful volume that I’ve quoted in my own books. – PeggySue Wells, Christian Book Previews.com
