    How to Avoid Escapism Tactics Like Denial, Deflection, Distraction, and Death - Rush Witt

    How to Avoid Escapism Tactics Like Denial, Deflection, Distraction, and Death - Rush Witt

    Why do we tend to lean into escapism when we binge-watch television or scroll social media for hours? Most of us are slow movers when it comes to change, Rush Witt says, because fallen people in a fallen world tend to place obstacles in their own path to avoid giving up their escapist vices. Rush is a biblical counselor and the pastor of Paramount Church and discusses how he and his wife made their way through a difficult season of life and survived it through God’s grace with the help of solid counseling. He talks about the four ways people often seek escape rather than God: denial, deflection, distraction, and even death. The Bible says that our issues ultimately spring up from within the heart. What does your heart say about you?

    Being Content in All Circumstances Gives Us Strength to Endure All Trials - Michele Howe

    Being Content in All Circumstances Gives Us Strength to Endure All Trials - Michele Howe

    How can we find happiness even when we are suffering in the midst of circumstances beyond our control? Author Michele Howe is a teacher and writer who addresses how important it is to dig deep into Scripture and learn more about God so that we can know how to find peace and strength to persevere amidst life’s struggles. Find time to spend with God - even if it’s just a few minutes each day. God will honor your time with Him, so make those minutes count! Strive to have a heart of gratitude, not grumbling. We should emulate the attitude of the apostle Paul, who suffered greatly, but learned to be content in all circumstances. Whatever we are dealing with - our response begins in our heart, so let’s give our hearts to God.

    How Pain and Suffering Play an Integral Role in Maturing Our Faith - Josiah Bancroft

    Take your everyday, practical worries and give them to God! This is the wise advice that pastor and author Josiah Bancroft shares about faith, peace, and long suffering. He also discusses the hallmarks of a mature Christian and how suffering can play an integral role in growing our faith, even if it’s uncomfortable and extremely difficult. Part of the key to growing in faith is rejoicing in Jesus regardless of circumstances, he says. We’re going to have trials and tribulations, but we can be content in Christ because His presence in our lives is solid and will never change. God can be what you can’t and that should give us encouragement. Give yourself time to process grief or difficulties and turn to Christ for help.

    What We Learn From Apostle Paul Choosing Joy in the Midst of Affliction - Josiah Bancroft

    The apostle Paul was a great example of looking toward the future and fixing his eyes on Jesus, even in the midst of intense trials and suffering. Pastor Josiah Bancroft is an author and ministry leader who has studied Paul’s life and shares how we can learn from the apostle’s example and search for joy in our Christian walk no matter the circumstances we are facing. Focus on Jesus and live in repentance, he shares. He points out the lessons we can learn from Paul, who spent so much time in prison for his faith.
