Detour: Finding Purpose When Life Doesn't Make Sense

What if the detour is the only way to the destination?

The "end" of Joseph's dreams was really just the beginning.

Joseph’s detour really wasn’t a detour after all. It was God’s sovereign plan—the purpose between the lines of the story. There are many parallels between his life and the ministry of Jesus, and therefore between his life and ours as followers of Jesus. As with Joseph and Jesus, our stories become a part of God’s even greater story—the story not only of a tragic fall but also of a stunning redemption. And regardless of the pain, the challenges, and the adversity we go through, the glory of our story will be worth it in the end.

"The Detour study has changed my viewpoint on the 'Favor' of God.  Simply stated: Being Favored is that God is with us.  It helps me to remember that no matter the good days or the bad days, whether in the palace or in the prison (as was the case for Joseph), that I am favored because my Lord is with me."
Dustin Hughes - Director of Builder Sales - Jeff Lynch Appliances and Home Store

"We completed the video series of Detour recently and it has been really special. We have had long discussions after each session with everyone saying how much their lives will now change. I would recommend it to everyone."
