Plan B

Plan B: What Do You Do When God Doesn't Show Up the Way You Thought He Would? (Paperback)

I received this book as part of Thomas Nelson’s book review bloggers program.

Author Wilson’s style is engaging and down to earth. His weaving of biblical scenarios, personal experience, and the experiences of others who have experienced God’s Plan B brought to mind experiences in my own life and that of others. It was a refreshing reminder of God’s sovereignty and providence.

What we call Plan B is really Plan A discovered to us in accord with God’s timetable. Our struggle occurs as we labor to make peace with the plan. We are like Job wrestling with events, wanting to argue with God, convinced we know better. At such moments, we need a friend to come alongside and remind us to “…let the peace of God rule in our hearts…” so that we might come to know the will of God as “…good, acceptable, and perfect…”.

Wilson has done us a service crafting this anecdotal reminder, undergirded with biblical example. I highly recommend this one.
