Dothan—How to See Beyond Your Disappointment

A shift in perspective looks beyond your pain to its purpose

Hindsight provides insight. It always can. But we can get so focused on today’s issues that we miss their purpose. Dothan appears only twice in the Bible. Both times, we get a perspective we desperately need.

As the ancient International Highway cut its way through Israel, it divided three ways through the Mount Carmel range. The eastern fork passed through a valley named after the town of Dothan.

On the day Joseph’s brothers dropped him in the pit at Dothan, neither they nor Joseph gave one thought about how that decision would affect eternity. It was all about the here and now.

But in hindsight, they saw God’s hand in the events and interpreted them accordingly.

Here’s how you can do the same.

While the human race is becoming collectively more knowledgeable every year, each of us (as individuals) is becoming relatively more ignorant. Thus [the] paradox of progress: the more we know, the less I understand. Every morning, when we wake up, we are in relative terms a little bit more stupid than the day before.

I’m excited to lead an upcoming special tour to the Holy Land which will focus exclusively on applying select Old and New Testament sites to your life. This special tour of the land of the Bible is designed to take you beyond the places most tours to Israel see. We’ll even experience the biblical sites of Jordan!

Perfect for someone returning to Israel to see brand new places—or for the first-timer who wants to experience the Holy Land in a unique and fulfilling way.

3 Steps to Contentment in Your Life with God

Security from the Good Shepherd who leads and walks beside you.

In our hectic lives, trying to find contentment feels like finding the horizon. Always there, but always out of reach.

We need to reframe the picture.

Using the picture of a shepherd, the Old and New Testaments point to the Lord as the only one who offers contentment—and how to find it.

Three steps can take you there.
