This book is based on the scripture from Jeremiah 29:11: "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." (NIV) The text illustrates a tapestry of events that will lead the reader to conclude that the author's entire life was scripted by God from the time of his birth. The instances of God's divine interventions and series of anomalies will demonstrate that He has used both "good times and bad times" as a means to fulfill His promise to the author. At a time when there are those who question the relevance of Christianity in today's world, the author delivers relevant and true cases of God's influences which reveals He is still in charge of His universe.
