Publisher's Summary

Encouragement and practical steps from best-selling author Christine Caine to help you move from anxiety about the unexpected to embracing confident faith in a good God.

Is it possible to have peace in an uncertain world? To not only expect the unexpected but embrace it? Most of us want to have life under control. But God wants us to anticipate the unexpected with a faith deeply rooted in his goodness. He wants us to know that because he is in control, we don't have to be.

In Unexpected, beloved author Christine Caine helps us walk into the life God has for us - unknowns and all. Using dramatic examples from her own journey, Christine offers real-life strategies and biblical inspiration to help you:

  • Anticipate the unexpected - personal upheaval, relational challenges, financial stresses, family transitions, career disappointments, and chaotic world affairs, etc.
  • Move from fear and worry about ourselves to hope and trust in God
  • Learn new ways to manage disappointment, strengthen our hearts, and build our faith
  • Step into the unknown to embrace your God-given destiny
  • Live in the joyful freedom of complete trust in God

Nothing in our lives takes God by surprise. So even in the midst of personal upheaval, relational challenges, financial stresses, family transitions, career disappointments, and chaotic world affairs, we can expect God to be good and do good. What other expectation do we need to have? Listen to God’s dare to trust him in every unknown of your life today.

Also available: Unexpected video study and study guide.

Unexpected Encouragement

This book is so encouraging. It tells the stories of people just like you and me, who chose to believe God in the hardest of times.
It reminded me that even though I am in the scope of the universe I am small, I have a purpose from the most Extraordinary God!!
Hearing Christine’s messages has changed my life - if you haven’t read or listened to this, please do!! It will make such a big difference. And so will you!😊💜 Thank you, Christine, for your incredible ministry.

A book to remind you of God’s unfailing Love even through the life’s unexpected seasons.

Christine speaks with such passion and empathy, I felt like I was talking to a dear friend who was genuinely concerned for me and who genuinely believed in me and God’s plan for my life. She speaks truth about fear and how it affects all of us and follows up with hope that we can overcome it and enjoy the unexpected journey ahead.
Thank you so much for writing this, this book found me at the perfect time.
Many Blessings to You Christine❤️
