There are TWO life seasons when people quit their dreams.

- 𝗧𝗵𝗲𝘀𝗲 𝘀𝗲𝗮𝘀𝗼𝗻𝘀 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗰𝗼𝗺𝗽𝗹𝗲𝘁𝗲𝗹𝘆 𝗽𝗿𝗲𝗱𝗶𝗰𝘁𝗮𝗯𝗹𝗲
- 𝗜𝘁'𝘀 𝗮 𝘀𝗶𝗴𝗻 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗼𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗿𝗶𝗴𝗵𝘁 𝗽𝗮𝘁𝗵

But...

When they happen, it sure doesn't feel like you are on the right path.

Make no mistake, when you begin to pursue your marketplace calling, the God-Planted dream inside you.

- to build that business
- to start that career

Whatever it is, you will experience ...

- unexpected delays
- problems
- obstacles
- and even dead ends

Everyone knows this who is on the path from Dream to Destiny.

What's unexpected are two of the four predictable seasons of the journey.

When God reveals His calling, His plan and purpose for you, it's an exciting time.

- God begins to prepare you.
- You muster up the faith and courage to go after it.

After all, God is with you, right? What can go wrong?

𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗣𝗶𝘁 - As you take courage and begin the journey with God, somewhere along the path, you'll find yourself in the pit. A desert season. A bone dry season. A season of great loss. God allows you be tested severely. For most, it's a major setback. Your faith gets developed here.

𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗣𝗮𝗹𝗮𝗰𝗲 - And then after much time in the pit, God delivers you, and begins to refresh and restore you. You become battle-tested. A warrior in the army of the Lord. You return to the good times ... AKA The Palace.

𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗣𝗿𝗶𝘀𝗼𝗻 - And then much to your surprise, you end up benched, sidelined, unproductive. During this season, God equips you in a mighty way. You acquire a new skill-set. You must endure this season.

𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗣𝗮𝗹𝗮𝗰𝗲 - And then suddenly, God unlocks the prison door, you're back in the palace, living out your destiny.

Does this story sound familiar. It's the story of Joseph. His story played out over many years. It had all kinds of twists and turns.

It's a predictable template of your journey from dream to destiny.

These four stage are normal, and completely predictable. Yet when you find yourself in the pit or in the prison, it can feel as though God has forgotten you.

Impossible. He is with you. He will NEVER forsake you.

Never ever quit in the Pit or in the Prison. They are strategic seasons in your life.

You will be refined by fire — and equipped for your destiny.

Do you feel stuck? Email me, perhaps God has called me to help you.
