You Can Thrive Even When Life Doesn’t Go Your Way Imagine thinking you’ve heard from God. You take the leap to follow what you think is God’s will, only to find doors closing, opportunities failing, and yourself in prison. Welcome to the apostle Paul’s world. That’s the backdrop of the circumstances he faced as he penned what we now know as the book of Philippians. In this concise letter to a young church, Paul shares insights on how to live with joy, significance, promise and purpose—even when things don’t go the way you planned. Provocative Joy is a verse-by-verse, theme-by-theme study of this powerful New Testament epistle. In its pages you will find insight and truth that will help you live well—no matter what—in good times and bad. But most importantly, with the ability to make the most of every situation through it all.
