Facing Plan B

Just started reading Plan B: What Do You Do When God Doesn't Show Up The Way You Thought He Would, by Pete Wilson, lead pastor of Cross Point Church in Nashville, TN.  Some Quotes:
"Your dreams may not be happening, and things aren't turning out the way you expected, but that doesn't mean your life is spinning out of control.  It just means you're not in control."   Page 22

"The greatest of all illusions is the illusion of control."   Page 31

"I've noticed that those of us who have trusted our heavenly Father with our eternities often have a tough time trusting him with our tomorrow."  Page 61

"...When you respond in your current circumstances as if you were confident that God is there, you will see God in the circumstances... Because the simple truth is that God is there.  God is always there.  The problems come when we allow our circumstances to distort our perspective and we miss God."   Page 68
