FROM THE GOD JOURNEY

How much of our gender confusion today results from warped stereotypes of masculinity and femininity? Tessa Van Wade, the author...

The post Masculinity and Femininity (#811) first appeared on The God Journey.

Navigating Toxic Relationships

Have you ever been in an exchange with an angry friend or relative who kept twisting everything you said until you begin to wonder if you are out of your mind? And I don't mean over a conversation or two, but over years berating you with angry accusations that don't make any sense or seem…

He is Always There

I sat with a man recently who has walked with God for over fifty years. I’ve seen him go through amazing adventures with God, help countless others find faith in the storms of life, and stay true to him in times of great suffering. But a medical emergency threatened all of that. He looked... Read More

The Rising Tide...

For the past six months, a dozen of us from around the world have met on Zoom every couple of weeks to seek to listen to God's heart about the turmoil in the world and to agree with him in prayer for what he wants to do in the world. This bi-weekly touchstone has... Read More

Raphael Returns

I can't wait to share this part of the story with you. If you haven't yet listened to the My Friend Luis podcast, now might be a good time to get started. When we finished those twelve episodes, Luis and I thought we had told an amazing story of redemption and God's intervention in... Read More

The Shepherd Is at Work

Yes, Sara and I are reading my new devotional book together, and though it feels a bit weird, we are enjoying how God is freshening in our hearts those realities he's been inviting us to embrace for over twenty-five years.  This is from June 26, a reminder that following him is the only way...

It’s Time to Take Wing, Again!

I doubt few people enjoyed the COVID stay-at-home orders more than I did. After twenty-five years of constant travel, it was a joy to be home with Sara for such a prolonged period as well as to work on some projects that were on my heart—the My Friend Luis podcast, a new daily devotional...

Out of the Shadows is now Available

Out of the Shadows, the first book in the Velieri Uprising, was written by someone I know since she was fourteen.  I love this story and what it sets up for the future books in this series.  I've been so excited to have people I know finally read this book. Here's what I wrote... Read More

Any Questions for Luis?

Putting My Friend Luis together as a podcast has truly been one of the most exhilarating experiences of my life. However, my friendship with Luis is the greater gift here. We continue to share God's life together as we walk with each other through the twists and turns of life. Doing so continues to open up... Read More

A Divine Wink?

I had an interesting experience the other day that still leaves me tickled and touched. The photo above was taken in the men's restroom at a gas station off of the Wheeler Ridge exit of Hwy 99. I was returning from a trip to visit my dad in the hospital shortly after he had... Read More

Meet Me in the Middle

A couple of weeks ago on The God Journey, Kyle and I briefly discussed Tyler Perry's invitation on the most recent Academy Awards TV broadcast: “I refuse to hate someone because they’re Mexican or because they are black or white. Or LGBTQ. I refuse to hate someone because they’re a police officer or because they’re... Read More

You Are Not Who You Think You Are

You'll want to read this.  No, not this blog, the new novel I want to tell you about. Out of the Shadows will debut in less than a month, and it will change the way you look at the world. It's been described as a cross between Bourne Identity and Hunger Games and while... Read More

Embracing God's Playfulness

Spring Newsletter 2021 Playfulness is not the first thing people think of when they think of the Creator of the universe. Our religious interpretations of him often paint him as an austere, angry, or even terrifying presence. Such views help keep the people fearful instead of faithful, which makes them easier to manipulate. But... Read More

Embracing the Winds of Change

For those of you following this new story-telling podcast, episode 10 dropped this morning. This begins yet another transition in our story and sets up for what were to be the final two podcasts in this series. However... This story has taken yet another turn. I finished my part of editing the final podcast... Read More

The First Moment of Freedom

Sara and I are reading through my new devotional each day.  Yes, it is a bit weird reading my own book and even stranger to be touched by it and freshly encouraged to draw into that space that makes my life more fruitful. This one especially touched my heart the other day. April 15... Read More

It's Time!

The last few months have been a strange time for me. As I was working on the new My Friend Luis podcast, I kept getting insight from the Spirit, signaling there was something ahead he wanted me to be ready for. These insights came in nudges from within, dreams and visions from other people,... Read More

Father's Fingerprints

I've not been posting much here or anywhere else lately because most of my time these days is spent talking to people and stitching together My Friend Luis. For those of you who have missed this, it is a new, twelve-episode, story-telling podcast of one of my closest friends and how God has worked... Read More

My Friend Luis Episode 3

Episode 3 of My Friend Luis dropped this morning. This is one of my favorite episodes of the story of the friendship Luis and I have shared, and it sets up a lot that's still to come. One incredible story told over twelve episodes in an immersive format. What it shows about God and his... Read More
