Our Truth and God’s Truth (#877)

"Your truth" is only valuable when it aligns with the Creator's reality. It is so easy for all of us to spin the narrative we want to be true, especially if it comforts us. But transformation and freedom arise where what we believe to be true is increasingly aligned with God's perspective of us and the situations we are in. Kyle and Wayne talk about that and those unexpected moments when God lets us in on something real and invites us to integrate it into our story. They also revisit last year's trauma story through letters from listeners who have been touched by that story.

Podcast Notes:
The video version of the recording of this podcast
Our first Wrestling with Trauma conversation will be held this Saturday, January 14, at 11:00 am PST.  You'll have to do the math to figure out what that might be in your time zone.  Like the Jake Colsen Book Club, we'll be moving these around to different times to help accommodate people in different parts of the world. If you'd like to join us this week, please email me for the Zoom link. We'll be limiting it to the first twelve who request a link, but don't worry, we will have more. These are not teaching sessions, nor will they build on each other. Each will be a conversation to serve those who join us and will not be recorded or streamed online.The next session of the Jake Colsen Book Club will be held Saturday, January 21, at 1:30 pm PST.  You'll have to work that out in your own time zone. This one will be on chapter 7, When You Dig a Hole For Yourself, You Have to Throw the Dirt on Someone. This chapter deals with how religious performance destroys relationships by making them competitive rather than living inside his love for others. We will stream it live on my Facebook Author Page, but if you want to be part of the conversation, you can get a link to the Zoom Room by emailing Wayne and asking for it.

  1. Kyle I so identify your comment about Paul I have struggled with how many times he seemed to be so legalistic and so compassionate in many scriptures.Wayne I so appreciated what you said that the translations have slanted it toward church authority.
    So since hearing this I have been reading Paul’s writings in a whole new light and I am being blessed many times over thank the both of you.
    Wayne I am praying for Sarah this morning for her surgery
    May God Bless you both
