Diane Busch5 Stars Out Of 5Insightful and helpfulOctober 25, 2018Diane BuschYou should probably buy your own copy of this book instead of borrowing it, because there is so much good content that you will want to mark and come back to time and time again. I didn't even know I needed the messages of this book, but it addresses issues and situations that all of us face. Caine helps us self-reflect and see where we need to trust God more, face our fears, and change our ways of thinking. She brings scripture passages and biblical promises to new light. Although written by a woman this book is recommended for men as well. All of us on life's journey will benefit from the insights and lessons Caine reveals.
Cindy NavarroCullman, ALAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5UnexpectedJune 29, 2018Cindy NavarroCullman, ALAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Each of us has unexpected things occur in our lives and we are seldom prepared. Christine Caine received a diagnosis of cancer that rearranged plans she had made for her life and this book opens with her story. She doesn't offer easy steps of dealing with these changes but does tell the reader how she trusted Jesus during the ordeal.
But this is more than Christine's story. She also shares many other stories of people who have had their lives turned upside down. We are given a peek into how God used circumstances and other people to help each during the difficult times and, even to prepare for their future. Caine gives many examples of the hope to be found and the restoration of lives to a 'new normal' that is meaningful.
I highly recommend this book to all. No one goes through life without facing the unexpected, whether minor or major, and we all need the reminder that we have a God who is with us at all times. The message of comfort, strength, hope, and healing reminds us to face our fear by trusting God as He leads us through the trials we face. What is unexpected by us is known by God and Christine will help you fight the fear you are facing and move forward.

bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: Over 65Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Well written and very encouraging bookMay 26, 2018bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: Over 65Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5This is the first book I've read by Caine and it certainly will not be the last. What an encouraging woman.
Caine concentrates on the unexpected in this book. We've had the unexpected, the surprise, the disappointment, the betrayal, the hurt. Maybe we swear we will never be vulnerable again. But Caine says we can't do that if we want to follow God's plan for us. "We cannot shrink back in fear and go forward in faith at the same time." (11)
Caine writes that she doesn't have five steps or seven keys to success. She just shares the process God walked her through, the same process she has seen God take others through too. (167) She shares stories from her own life and the lives of others. They are amazing stories of faith in the midst of adversity.
She encourages us with the lessons she has learned from her experiences. They include the necessity of faith and patience. She challenges us to learn to walk with confidence as we face the unexpected. We will be a witness to others and cultivate an intimate relationship with God in the process.
I highly recommend this book. It contains great encouragement to trust God with our pain and develop intimacy with Him. We can step out into the unexpected and unknown with unshakable confidence in God.
I received a complimentary copy of this book through Icon Media. My comments are an independent and honest review.
