McKenna, Bevan C
Has God ever given you the runaround? Taken you on a wild goose chase? Said no to your prayers when you thought He should have said yes? Or maybe said yes when you wanted Him to say no?
Bevan Charlene McKenna has experienced plenty of divine detours—those times when you can’t quite trace God’s direction, when “there is no searching of his understanding” (Isa. 40:28, KJV). But Bevan has found that God always has a plan, and sometimes He even lets you in on it. What’s more, when you finally figure out what He’s up to, you often discover that He has a sense of humor!
Drawing from her growing-up years on the island of Trinidad, her career as a teacher, and the experiences of those close to her, Bevan shares times when God brought joyful outcomes in surprising ways. You’ll meet a forty-seven-year-old woman who finds herself pregnant; a university student with a family to support and a dwindling bank account; a recent graduate whose phone line goes dead while she’s waiting for that all-important call about a job offer.
In these moments and many others, you’ll see how God “showed Himself strong” in ordinary people’s lives, giving them abundant reasons to Insert Praise Here! Bevan’s encouraging stories will inspire you to praise the Lord, even when you face perplexing circumstances.
