I can't believe it is already time to reveal April's book. I have to admit that I have been on the fence and nothing quite struck a chord with me (and y'all were all torn on last month's feedback too).
But I came across a book that the description struck a chord with me. (Finally!) And I believe that it is not just a title, but a message we will all find a big deep breath in.
So without further ado, here is April's Book:
Please watch this video to learn a bit more about what the book is about:
Here is a little blurb about the book:
What do you do with a shattered dream? Or an unmet expectation? What do you do when your life isn't turning out the way you thought it would? What do you do when you have to turn to Plan B?In Plan B pastor and author Pete Wilson uses real life stories of disappointments and hurts along with the biblical stories of men and women like David, Joseph, and Ruth to help readers come to grips with the truth that they will face situations that in themselves they are completely unable to handle but that in them God is simply trying to get them to surrender their plans so that they can receive His. He identifies our common responses to difficulties and offers hope, helping us to: Understand what God might be up to, See how surrender helps us to receive God's plan, Embrace the community of believers, and Reconcile a God of love with a life of tragedy and suffering
Wilson points readers to the cross as not just the starting line but the centerpiece of our story with God and shares that it is there we turn in our Plan B and find the undeniable relationship between crisis and our hope followed by true spiritual transformation. "God wants to live inside the questions" says Wilson and then reminds us that "the cross is proof that He does not always change the circumstance but that He always has a purpose in every circumstance. He will never let go of us. He will hold us and His cross will be an anchor for us."
You can purchase it on Amazon HERE. It is available on the Kindle too!
I so hope you will join us! Regardless of what season in life you are in right now, we have all felt the _(fill in the blank)_ of what it is like for things not to go as Plan A had so perfectly laid out.
And for vote off for May (I think we will start doing this each 15th as well): What fiction book should we read next? I have not a clue of what to recommend, so send in your ideas!
