Lesson two - Through it...not Around (May 3)

SCRIPTURE:  Isaiah 46:4-5

What do you find yourself thinking about the most? If you sat quietly and let your mind wander, what’s the thing that pops up again and again? Sometimes it’s something awesome, like a trip you’re looking forward to or someone new you’re interested in. But other times it’s something not as awesome, like a fight with a friend or family drama at home. When our minds are consumed with difficult circumstances, we tend to start looking for a way to escape. And whether we realize it or not, sometimes those escapes can lead us to make bad choices. And the worst part? Those bad choices don’t actually fix anything! In fact, they often make difficult circumstances that much more difficult. So if escapes can lead to bad choices that won’t fix bad circumstances, what should we do in the midst of our problems? That's what we'll discuss as a group this during our next lesson!

LESSON one - Deal with it (April 2)

SCRIPTURE:  Romans 5:2-5 and Colossians 3:23

What’s one of your favorite things to do when you’re feeling a little stressed? Maybe it’s to watch a few episodes of a new show on Netflix or turn up your favorite playlist on Spotify. Maybe you go for a run or spend time scrolling through social media. No matter what it is, we all tend to look for a little distraction from time to time—especially when life gets challenging. And while distractions aren’t necessarily bad things, they can create problems if they become our way of life. In other words, when those temporary distractions become a consistent path of avoidance, we run the risk of never facing the challenges in front us.   So how do we deal with this?
