Excerpt from Books Introduction:
What if I were to tell you that all the disappointments, failures, pain, and struggles you’ve experienced were part of a larger plan God has for your life to equip and empower you to fulfill your destiny?
What if every door that was shut in your face was not one of rejection but divine direction?
What if God never intended for your situation to become your destination, but only preparation? Would that change your perspective of your past and present situation?
God intends that our lives should be something that is enjoyed, not simply endured. This does not happen by mistake. It happens on purpose. It starts with our making a decision that we want the best that God and life has to offer us. No matter what the landscape of our lives looks like right now, it can and will change if we don’t give up.
When we understand that our past and present problems serve a particular purpose in our development for our destinies, we avoid the mistake of making temporary situations permanent ones. Until our change manifests itself, we must continually encourage and remind ourselves that our situation is not our destination, but only preparation!
