Dr. Gary Oliver is a modern day Job. Though he holds some titles (theologian, psychologist, therapist), he is a Christ follower at heart, leading men and women into deeper walks with Jesus through Going Deeper Retreats.

This episode is like free admission into a mastermind on life’s secrets to finding joy, coming from a man who’s lived through unbelievable loss and heartache.

In the span of four years, Gary lost his entire nuclear family and half of his current family. If that weren’t enough, he battled 7 cancer surgeries during that time, lost 90% of his tongue, was told he’d never speak again, eat from a feeding tube, and was even told he had less than 3 months to live by one of the nation’s top cancer doctors. That was 13 years ago.

What Gary discovered after years of serving God all over the world, writing books, and speaking to millions of men, was that God’s sovereign joy, in the moment, is what truly matters. He joins us this week to reveal beautiful, hard-earned lessons, to experience God’s joy every day, no matter our circumstances.

Two of Gary’s quotes from this episode:
⁃ “I don’t [seek God] to get something, but to obey.”
⁃ “God’s promises are always more powerful than Satan’s pessimism.”

In this episode, Gary talks about:

  • How he had to answer the questions, “Have I failed God?” and “Why would He do this to me?”
  • How to seek God and experience His joy even when you’re raising little kids!
  • The four lessons he learned about sovereign joy that we can practice, beginning today
  • Insights on what a rule of life is, how to practice gratitude, and the best book of the Bible for everyday reading
