What if the detour is the only way to the destination?
Sometimes we seem to be wandering aimlessly, far removed from our real passions and purposes. The roadmap to our destination takes crazy turns and leaves us either scratching our heads or crying out at God. But as we look at Scripture, we see in the life of Joseph, as well as many other biblical characters, that this process is not the exception, it’s the norm. This is how God works. It may be excruciating at times, but there is purpose in it. He is writing a bigger story and fitting us into it in ways we cannot yet see.
Detour: Finding Purpose When Life Doesn’t Make Sense.
A Study of the Life of Joseph
For all of us who are frustrated because life seems more like a maze than a clearly sign-posted journey, here is a series that we have desperately needed. Phil Tuttle points out that, surprisingly, God often works His special and productive purposes in seasons of life where clarity is the missing ingredient. Digging deep into the life of Joseph, Phil demonstrates that God manages our confusion toward good and productive ends. Experience this series, and be encouraged!
