Plan B by Pete Wilson

All of us face disappointments in life - times when we don't understand what God is doing. Perhaps we feel that everything we relied on is crumbling before our very eyes. We may be confused and unsure of which direction to proceed. Pete Wilson's book Plan B explores how Christians handle these scenarios.

I found this book to be extremely challenging, encouraging, and inspirational. Wilson states that, "God does his best work in hopeless situations." God uses these times to change, shape, and refine us, as long as we allow Him. The author goes on to say, "So maybe it's fair to say that while God doesn't need our tragedies to transform us, he certainly uses our Plan Bs to bring about change in our lives."

This book was poignant to any circumstance that a Christian is experiencing in their life. Wilson encourages the reader to examine their relationship with the Lord, and to allow God to teach them through the process of their Plan B. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has faced struggles - which is all of us.
