There’s Still Hope was never God’s Plan A.
There. I said it. What does that mean?
I’m glad you asked. The thing is, God’s Plan A was for me to get into recovery 30 years sooner. If I had done that, I would have never lost my pastoral ministry. And we would have never launched There’s Still Hope. Nine books, ten weekly groups, daily Recovery Minutes, 90-Day Recovery Program – none of it would have ever come to be.
But I must say, we are having more fun with Plan B than we ever had with Plan A. Why is that? Because we serve a God of redemption. What the enemy intended for evil. God turned for good.
James. A Yorke said, “The most successful people are those who are good at Plan B.” And God said, “Behold, I am doing a new thing” (Isaiah 43:19).
You may have shredded God’s Plan A for your life. Don’t fret. His Plan B is still more than you could ask or think.
Recovery Step: Embrace the God of Plan B. The God of second chances has a future for you that is greater than your wildest dreams.
