Plan B: What Do You Do When God Doesn't Show Up The Way You Thought He Would? by Pete Wilson


In Plan B, Pete Wilson addresses the question, "What do you do when God doesn't show up the way you thought He would?" What happens when your life doesn't turn out quite like you thought it would? Or every dream you ever had for your life is completely shattered?

Wilson takes readers on a journey to figure out how we should respond when we're dealing with Plan B instead of Plan A. He takes an in-depth look at Scripture to identify men and women who have struggled with their own Plan B ... David, Joshua, Joseph, Job, Mary. Wilson also adds examples from his own life that add a deeply personal element.

I found the book to be thought-provoking and insightful. I feel like I have spent a lot of my life dealing with Plan B. It seems that for one reason or another, most of the things I had "planned" haven't turned out exactly the way that I hoped they would. However, I've never really thought of Plan B like this book describes it ... as an opportunity to see God work in a new (and possibly bigger) way. The personal elements just add honesty and vulnerability to the book ... and lets readers know that the author has struggled and still struggles with trusting God to take control ... especially in our Plan B moments. The author also has several "simple" suggestions for moving past the fear, anxiety, etc. that Plan B evokes for most of us and pushes us to think of Plan B in a whole new light.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who ever has experienced a Plan B moment, is in a Plan B situation right now, or thinks they might end up in a Plan B season in the future.

5 stars (out of 5)

I received a FREE copy of this book from Thomas Nelson's BookSneeze blogger review program in exchange for my fair and honest review.
