A Reader's Look at A Most Inconvenient Match

The New Year is here, and many of us will set goals that few will keep and many will abandon. The New Year represents a chance to start over; put the past behind us, and find a new path in life.
This is exactly what Abigail Stuart in An Inconvenient Marriage by Regina Jennings has decided to do, but she is about to learn what ALL Christians must grasp: Our Plans are always subject to God’s will.
See, Abigal has decided she is going to start over. The Civil War has ended, and a marriage to a dying soldier has given her the opportunity to leave her past behind and start a new life complete with a farm and ready-built family. She has no plans for love; just a chance to belong.
But there is a catch. God has His own plans. Plans that include a handsome young man who needs the gentle touch of a well-trained nurse. A nurse like Abigal.
See, what Abigal isn’t expecting is her ‘deceased’ husband to show up on her new doorstep very much alive and very much not the man she had married. Her new life is thrown into disarray while she tries to hold onto her plans and unknowingly fight against God’s will. Through heartache and roadblocks, Abigal comes to a realization: what she wants doesn’t really matter. Only God’s will does.
What in so many ways is a sweet romance story becomes much more as the reader is reminded of one simple lesson: God’s plans for us are more rewarding, more richer than anything we can come up with ourselves. The catch is, we have to be willing to accept it and let him guide us.

So let me ask you this: as you walk your life path whose trail are you on, yours or God’s?
