Learn how God often does His best work in our most hopeless situations.
What do you do when a shattered dream or an unmet expectation causes you to turn to Plan B? Pastor and author Pete Wilson uses real life stories of disappointments and tragedy along with biblical stories such as David, Joseph, and Ruth to help readers face their own overwhelming situations and through them to learn God is working to help them surrender their plans to receive His. He identifies our common responses to difficulties and offers hope, helping us to
Understand what God might be up to See how surrender helps us to receive God’s plan Embrace the community of believers Reconcile a God of love with a life of tragedy and suffering Wilson points readers to the cross as not just the starting line but the centerpiece of our stories with God where we turn in our Plan B and find the undeniable relationship between crisis and true spiritual transformation.
Life does not always go as planned which is where Plan B By Pete Wilson comes into play. Through the use of Biblical and modern references, Wilson assures the reader that God does not leave a person in need; rather He is always present, even if one does not see it at the time. Many would be hard pressed to view the loss of a job, a home, or loved one as a blessed event, yet Wilson gently guides the reader toward a healing and more positive approach to some of life’s curve balls. Wilson clearly demonstrates to the reader in a clear and concise manner that God is always present and that there are solutions, but one must be open to hearing them as well as seeing them when these solutions present themselves, and although they may not be what we hoped for or when we wished they would appear, yet appear they do. Plan B offers the reader hope, guidance and insight into some of the darker moments one may experience, without the added preachiness or “have you been saved” tones other books have used. I found Plan B to be an extremely enlightening book and I would recommend Plan B to anyone going through a rough patch in their life.
I received a complimentary copy of Plan B by Pete Wilson from Thomas Nelson as for review. Receiving a copy in no way reflected my review of aforementioned novel.
