DETOURS: Chaos - Character - Calling

June 10th - July 24th, 2011

LISTEN to the series.

Life gets chaotic - and those are the moments when character counts more than ever. Growing in character through times of chaos is what leads to a sense of calling in life. One of the people in God's Word whose life speaks of chaos, character, and calling is Joseph. It's the classic story of a nobody who became somebody, the story of a man of remarkable character, integrity, and destiny. Joseph's journey takes him from chaotic betrayal, to imprisonment and slavery, to the height of respect. Joseph prevailed because he perceived God at work even when he was rejected, misunderstood, falsely accused, and forgotten. He refused to become bitter and resentful - and he advanced even through adversity. Joseph's example will challenge you to have a positive, faith-filled attitude when you come face to face with chaos, broken dreams, and circumstances that seem impossible.
