When God gives you a "Plan B" by Pete Wilson
I will have to admit through all this I've often wondered where God was. I mean I knew he was there but I couldn't see Him, couldn't find Him, it came a strictly faith walk.
We tried to plant a church, unable to find jobs we went through savings, eventually threw in the towel and moved back to Lindell's hometown. We felt like failures or that we had missed God.
"Just because God calls you to some venture, that doesn't guarantee the venture will succeed. Just because life doesn't turn out the way you thought that doesn't mean you missed God's will." pg 79 He is more interested in your character, who you are, than what you do.
Could it be the thing we think of as Plan B is in all actuality a gift from God?..."letting God reveal and strip away our spiritual imperfections." pg. 263
"We must be willing, if necessary to abandon the life we've planned and dreamed of in order to receive the life that our God has authored for us." pg. 157
This book has many such nuggets as well as a wealth of insight, encouragement, wisdom. I would recommend everyone read this!
