Publisher's Summary

God has a plan for your life. More often than not, it's a detour - one that can leave you feeling temporarily stalled and slowed down. Which nobody likes. But detours are necessary if any improvements are going to be made on the paths we travel. Or if any wreck is going to be cleaned up or a hazard avoided. Detours are designed for our own good, regardless of how we view or feel about them. Detours are a good thing that often feels bad. Tony knows a thing or two about detours, and one of the things he knows for certain is that God works through detours to bring about his blessing. To deliver you to the place he has created just for you. Yet what we often do is try as hard as we can to work our own way to the circumstances we believe are best for us.

Using examples from the life of Joseph, Tony will leave listeners with answers to the following questions:

  • How do you find the destiny God has designed for your life?
  • How can you make the most of the detours God has planned for you?
  • Is there a way to shorten a detour and speed up your progression in life?
  • What is the purpose of a detour?

Accepting Life Troubles

I had a hard time understanding Romans 5:3. Paul tells us to rejoice in our suffering. This book helped me understand what this meant. In my personal life. Pain & tribulations has turned my life around. It has humbled me & I now value life differently.

Necessary for any committed Believer

I am listening to this over and over to get through my detours. This book illuminated so many truths and made sense of my journey with the Lord. This season is very, very difficult, dry and silent. It feels like I am wrongfully imprisoned and my sentence will never end. I was so confused and discouraged, believing I must have done something wrong. This book gives me the encouragement and truth I need to persevere. This book contains explanations and knowledge necessary to understand how the Lord works HIS plans in our lives and the purpose in the detours.

Inspirational audiobook

This book is a source of inspiration. I really enjoyed listening to the audiobook and intend to repeat the course periodically. The book teaches us to maintain our faith in God, especially during difficult times.
