CTN 135: God Gives The Travel Victories (Deuteronomy 2)

CTN 135: God Gives The Travel Victories (Deuteronomy 2)

November 24, 2021

What are some victories that you've had in travel? What are some common quests and things that you have achieved while traveling? For many of us it's crossing something off that bucket list or conquering our fears. Those are great examples of travel victories, but when we dive in to Deuteronomy 2 we'll find that the victory that God gives them is a lot more war oriented. But there's still a lot of aspects that do apply to us so that's what we'll be exploring in this episode. 

One of the upcoming events to mark on your calendar, is a virtual networking event for Christian Travelers, like yourself, on January 15th! More details will be coming out on December 1st - so if you haven't subscribed to our newsletter, please do - so that you can be the first hear all about it! www.christiantravelers.net

CTN 134: Travel Destinations Fulfilled (Deuteronomy 1)

CTN 134: Travel Destinations Fulfilled (Deuteronomy 1)

November 17, 2021

Have you ever heard of someone passing away and not being able to complete something on their bucket list? In response, an individual decided to take the trip in memory of the loved one passed on. Do you know anyone who has ever done this? In this weeks episode, we will be diving into Deuteronomy 1 where we will see the Israelites on the brink of entering the Promised Land. Moses enthralls them with a final sermon and reminds them of the mistakes of his ancestors. Of the reason why this generation will be be the ones to reach the Holy land. The Lord had promised Abraham this land 400 years ago, but now the land was before them and Moses was passing the baton to the next generation.

CTN 133: Travelogue (Numbers 33)

CTN 133: Travelogue (Numbers 33)

November 10, 2021
According to Oxford Languages, the definition of a travelogue is: "A movie, book, or illustrated lecture about the places visited and experiences encountered by a traveler." That definition and that word is not one that I honestly encounter frequently. We more often hear about travel blog & vlogs, but when researching numbers chapter 33 (which is what we're going to be diving into today) I found that this chapter is a true travelogue of places they visited along on their trip.  While many of these places we can't identify with 100% certainty, we do know that this travelogue would have stirred up memories of how God had walked with them every step of their journey. In todays episode we will be asking the tough question - how do you document your journey? And what travel memories stir to mind the activities of the Lord?

CTN 132: The Ungrateful Traveler (Numbers 11)

CTN 132: The Ungrateful Traveler (Numbers 11)

November 3, 2021

Take a moment and think back to a time when you found yourself whining while you were traveling. Maybe you were a kid in the backseat asking the question "Are we there yet?" Or maybe you're an adult who was upset w that a flight got delayed. Whatever the scenario I think all of us can find a moments where we were ungrateful during our travels. It's a really peculiar thought because, ultimately you were excited about our destination and we're grateful for the opportunity to go. And yet sometimes - we have ungrateful hearts. In this episode, we will be looking at Numbers 11 to see when the Israelites took on an ungrateful heart in their travels. Hopefully, we can learn from their mistakes. (We can also learn to ask for forgiveness too.)

CTN 131: Travel Preparations & Tips (Numbers 10)

CTN 131: Travel Preparations & Tips (Numbers 10)

October 27, 2021

When it comes to travel preparations, there are different types of travelers out there. Some people like to fly by the seat of their pants and some prefer months of planning and preparing for their trip. As a result, some individuals find themselves packing for trips the morning of whereas others will have been packed a week before.  Now I know, many of us might believe that traveling without plans means that  it leaves the door open for God's plans. There's definitely a time and place for that, but as we reflect on Numbers 10, we're going to see that God created some serious organization and planning for the Israelites to help them travel smoothly and with confidence. I think some of that can apply to our own travels today, and that is what we will be exploring in this episode.

CTN 130: Living As A Temple For the Lord (Number 9:15-23)

CTN 130: Living As A Temple For the Lord (Number 9:15-23)

October 20, 2021
In this episode, we're going to be looking at when the Israelites followed the pillar of cloud and smoke through the wilderness. A literal sign and direction as to where they were meant to go and stop along their journey. Many of us are looking for a literal sign that gives us clear direction as to where God wants our life to go. And for some of us that goes so far has where, how, and when we should travel. While the Lord may not manifest for you as a pillar of cloud or fie, He does still give us a guide. We will be unpacking this in this weeks episode!

CTN 129: Celebration Your Past Vacations (Numbers 9:1-14)

CTN 129: Celebration Your Past Vacations (Numbers 9:1-14)

October 13, 2021

When I think of annual festivities and celebrations, some of the first things that come to mind are birthdays, Christmas, Thanksgiving here in the United States, and Easter. But in this episode, based on Numbers 9:1-14, than just celebrating that someone got another year older or that another holiday came and went, the Lord is instructing them to celebrate a past trip. Now, if I asked you to celebrate a past trip my guess is that you would celebrate it by either retelling stories, sharing pictures and memories from that trip, gather again with the people who first ventured out on that trip, or you'd go back to that place and reminisce about good times and make some new memories to. But the way the Lord instructs these individuals to go back and revisit and remember this trip is a little different than how I think you and I might do that.. So let's go ahead and take a look at numbers chapter 9 verses one through 14.

CTN 128: Awaiting Your Next Trip (Exodus 7-14)

CTN 128: Awaiting Your Next Trip (Exodus 7-14)

October 6, 2021

Have you ever found yourself incredibly excited for trip and everything in life and on your calendar is a race, a count down for that day? Whether it's something is super big like an international vacation  or it's going to see your family on the holidays, it doesn't matter. All that matters is the earliest time you can depart, how long you could possibly stay!  In this weeks podcast we are going to talk about a long awaited trip - one that Moses took with the Israelites as he led the people out of Egypt - 430 years after they arrived! This story isn't a quick and smooth departure, but rather God demonstrating His power to the Egyptians (& Israelites) as He denounces the Egyptian gods - one plague at a time!

If you want to continue to grow in your faith, in Christian community, and travel - then I encourage you to join us on our next trip in Punta Cana - learn more at www.christiantravelers.net/punta-cana!

CTN 127: How Do Others View Your Worship (Exodus 4:18-5)

CTN 127: How Do Others View Your Worship (Exodus 4:18-5)

September 29, 2021

Like the Israelites, we are set apart to be different. We are called to worship the Lord on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday... every day of the week, and everywhere. No matter where life & our travels take us. But sometimes people view our worship as being idle or lazy - especially in todays busy, go, go, culture. This reminds me of the story of Moses, when he first asked Pharaoh to let the people go worship in the wilderness. Pharaoh thought the people were being idle and lazy, and that was why they wanted to worship. In fact, Pharaoh made their workload harder in response to this request. Others may view our worship as a waste of time, but it's what renews our relationship with God and sets us apart - as ones who know our King.

CTN 126: Imposter Syndrome & Your Calling (Exodus 3:1-4:17)

CTN 126: Imposter Syndrome & Your Calling (Exodus 3:1-4:17)

September 22, 2021

Imposter Syndrome. A person who doubts their skills, talents, & accomplishments and fears being exposed as a fraud (Wikipedia). When stepping into your calling, or traveling for the Lord, have you ever felt like an imposter? Have you every doubted that you were the right person for the task at hand? Have you ever found yourself thinking: "Lord, please choose someone else!" Let me tell you - you aren't alone in your doubts. Moses also objected to the Lord, when they Lord told him that he would be Israel's leader and get them to the Promised Land. In this weeks podcast we will take a look at Exodus 3:1-4:17 and reflect on how the Lord used Moses (& us) despite his fears! 

Just a brief reminder, this is the last week for early bird registration for our trip to Punta Cana! Full priced registrations close in early October. You can find this and other resources on our website, at www.christiantravelers.net
