If you know a little of my and Merryn’s story, perhaps from reading Resurrection Year, you’ll know that for many years now there’s been something missing in our lives. An unmet longing. A space in our hearts we couldn’t fill. Well, after years of waiting and praying, wondering if it would happen… Merryn and I have some news to share. More…

Dreams. We all have them. But by our 40s, some of us have had to watch our dreams die. Yet even those broken dreams can become something beautiful. In this video I explain how sometimes the ‘wilderness’ – the dark and barren place of longing and loss – is in fact the best place for God to meet us… More…

I’m Suffering. Is God Punishing Me?

Ever since writing Resurrection Year I’ve received hundreds of emails from people sharing their broken dreams and heartaches. In some, I’ve noticed a subtle belief that their trials are divine retribution of some kind—a punishment for their mistakes or wrongs. If you’ve ever felt the same, you’re not alone. But the feeling needs to be challenged. More…

Like me and probably like you, my friend Clare Chate watched a lot of the Rio Olympics. Moved by the public failures some of these athletes endured, she wrote this post and prayer—which I’m sure will prove helpful for all us non-athletes too…in fact, anyone who’s had a disappointment or a broken dream.

Ever since I wrote a book about starting again after a broken dream, I’ve found myself answering lots of questions about them. ‘How can you turn a broken dream into a new beginning?’ ‘When should you let a dream die?’ And this one especially: ‘What if you don’t have any dreams for your life? How can you find one?’ Here’s an exercise to help answer that question… More…

061 Three Questions to Ask When God Seems Silent

Man sitting by lake

Although Merryn and I tried to start a family for 10 years, and sought God diligently the whole time, one of the most perplexing things about our journey was God’s silence. We heard him speak on other things during that time, but never on our pursuit of a family. It was hard. Biblical heroes experienced this struggle too. So if you’re facing the silence of God, you’re not alone. But just because God is staying silent, doesn’t mean he is absent. Here’s 3 helpful questions to ask yourself when the silence comes. More…

Dreams. We all have them. As a teenager they keep us awake with excitement. As a 20-something they start shaping our decisions. By our 40s we may have seen them spring to life, or perhaps watched some die. The dreams of two families died in Sydney this week. Thankfully, God can recycle such tragedies into unexpected things.
