Take a moment to reconsider the detour that is taking place in your life. You are being detoured, not abandoned.
The word “detour” is of French origin. It was created from the word “tour” which means “to turn.” God is turning your life in a new direction. A tour of something new is taking place. A dictionary definition defines a detour as “a deviation from a direct course or the usual procedure.” You are being detoured to experience a tour through regions of your life and faith you had not considered before this detour began.
As the detour moves forward, focus on the landscape of God’s heart, not on what you are leaving behind or what awaits you in the future. This is why the detour is happening. It is not to rob you of your joy or destroy your dreams. You are being detoured to see the heart of God, and that image will change the way you view your future and interpret your past.
