During a live stage performance, there’s no such thing as a do-over. Unlike the chapters we write and rewrite, the stage actor can’t say to the audience, “Sorry, I missed my cue. Can I start over?”
For stage actors, doing a scene over is reserved for only one place … rehearsal. Lots of them. Hours and hours of grueling practice. Hard work is the key to success for that one-and-only shot before a paying crowd.
Many times I’ve wished life was a film sound stage and I had a director who’d let me have several takes on every scene.
Maybe you’ve wished for the chance to do something over? A marriage? Parenting your children? Deciding whether or not to skip those college classes? Your driver’s license renewal test?
What if those mistakes were dress rehearsals? Practice sessions? A second chance to get it right? Would you be willing to do the work for a perfect life performance?
Here’s the bad news: You can’t do enough hard work.
Here’s the good news: You don’t have to.
Someone else paid the price. You can start over free and clear because of the blood of Jesus Christ.
It’s never too late to take advantage of a do-over deal like that.
