I was immediately intrigued by the title of Pete Wilson’s book Plan B because it’s a phrase we use so much in my family. In fact, we sometimes take it farther than that: many times we’re talking about Plan F or even Plan Q!
Yet at the same time, I found myself asking, “Does God have a Plan B for my life?” As I read Pete’s book I discovered the answer to my question is a resounding and loving, “No!” God only has a Plan A, nothing takes Him by surprise. I, however, often get taken by surprise: that’s where Plan B comes in. And that’s where Pete’s book is so beneficial.
This book is not about scrambling to come up with an alternate plan, but learning how to rest assured in God’s Plan A for my life.
I’m pretty sure that all of us have been disappointed at some point. We thought things were heading in the right direction, but then everything seemed to be going sideways. Our first inclination is to try to come up with a Plan B to deal with our ‘crisis’. But Pete Wilson’s Plan B is a reminder that God’s Plan A still prevails, that we can still place our hope in God. I love this quote from the book:
“There is an undeniable relationship between crisis and hope. Between waiting hopefully and being transformed. Between Plan B and the glory of God.”
A practical and timely book to help you successfully navigate through the tough spots, to not collapse in crisis, but to be buoyed by hope.
