Plan B - What Do You Do When God Doesn’t Show Up The Way You Thought He Would?
By Pete Wilson
Wracked by feelings of despair? Fear? Panic? Overcome by hurt, doubt and anger? Need help deciding what to do in your life? Are you a Christian who feels as if God has deserted you? Author Pete Wilson, the pastor of Cross Point Church in Nashville has written a book that offers help and encouragement to those of us who feel all alone and overwhelmed.
Change, both good and not so good, is a constant in nearly everyone’s life and can leave one reeling (if life never disappoints you probably don’t need this book). Things, people and places we take for granted can change in the blink of an eye. Jobs are lost, people get sick, friends and family can turn their back on us, money disappears and divorces happen every day to millions of people. Some see themselves merely as disappointed victims, but Pastor Wilson suggests that change can equal opportunity if only we can change our thinking. “God is still with you. And things will turn around, one way or another. Maybe not the way you planned. Maybe not the way you assumed God would handle it. Maybe not even the way you hope. But you will see God’s hand at work – if not in your circumstances, then in your heart.” (page 22)
Perhaps choosing Plan B is the smartest plan of all.
