I am Second!! Now in PAPERBACK!!!
I recently received an Ebook entitled I AM SECOND by Dave Sterrett and Doug Bender and published by Thomas Nelson.
I had seen many of these videos, a very catchy websight had been set up a few years ago at www.iamsecond.com. In fact I have one of the bracelets, plain black with the words I AM SECOND written on it; and boy can I tell you stories about the conversation that the bracelet and Shirt that I wear have started! Chances to share why I am second since no one wants to be second, it sticks out and draws attention!
So what is the concept? Stories of those who tried doing life on their own, or life in their own STRENGTH and failed. The stories of their struggles with fame, fortune, drugs, sex, alcohol, marriage, divorce, porn etc… You name it an they discuss it.
Their stories are all different, yet in the end they all come together under this one note: GOD IS #1!
They all came to a realization that they couldn’t do it on their own. That without God they were in a losing battle. These are the stories of how people you know like Bethany Hamilton, Michael W. Smith, Brian “Head” Welch, and many more came to a point of utter brokenness in their lives and found God still there waiting to bring them back.
These are their stories. The stories of Victory, Pain and continued struggles but now they are no longer on their own. They are now SECOND following the only one who can truly lead them!
This book connects with all who read. You can see yourself in their struggles, and pains. Maybe you see your self in their stories and identify with one or more of them. Then in the end you hear how these people have overcome!
I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a gift for a seeker, a college student, and adult, a counselor… you name it! EVERYONE will identify!
I AM SECOND!!! Are you?
