Plan B

I’m learning lots about Plan B.  Not just this great book by Pete Wilson, but from life.  I have a plan for my life, and it’s not really going the way I would have chosen.  If I could choose my own way, I wouldn’t have rheumatoid arthritis, I would be able to hike the Appalachian Trail like I once had hoped.  I wouldn’t drive a mini-van, I would drive a Mustang.  I wouldn’t only have my teeny-tiny blog presence, and I would be writing a book review for my own book coming out soon…

Pete Wilson goes into great detail in his new book Plan B about why God might allow us to live with what appears to be “Plan B”.  He cites many Biblical references where God’s own people saw God’s hand in their lives even though their lives did not turn out the way they had in mind, or their own “Plan A”.  He discusses an alternative mindset we need to have: all things work together for the good of those who love Him.  (Romans 8:28).  Our plan B is God’s plan A.  It is where He gets the most glory, because our defenses are stripped, and we are dependant on Him.  In those times, we seek God the most. 

This book would be a very useful tool for anyone who feels misaligned with the plans they thought were going to be their lives.  I would highly recommend this book if you feel like your life is not turning out the way you want it to, or if you know someone who is disappointed with God, or if you think you might know someone like that someday.  In other words, get the book.  It will help.

    I love that – Our plan B is God’s plan A. Awesome. It’s so incredibly true, though, if we just pay attention to it. That’s exactly the reason I’ve given up holding strong to my goals. I make them but they’re pretty flexible. And really, from my experience, the more I make strong goals that aren’t in line with God’s plans, the more difficult they are to achieve…if not impossible. That’s when I know to step back.
