Spiritual Growth via Everyday Struggles

Challenges on Earth are inescapable. The death of a loved one; loss of a job; a serious illness; terrorist attacks; and a plethora of unplanned disasters are only the beginning.  These consistent, everyday struggles generate an onslaught of strong emotions and a fixation on uncertainty.

Resilience is the process of adapting to adversity, trauma, tragedy, threats, or significant sources of stress. These things may derive from familial strife, health issues, stressors of the family or workplace. At first, stress could prove overwhelming. That said, that doesn’t mean that a person cannot learn to cope. After all, emotional pain is synonymous with living. More so, it is more common in people who have suffered major trauma in their lives. Despite seemingly a personality-trait, resilience is actually something that is taught by difficulty.

In short, resilience is something that is earned. 

For someone leaving the institutional church, spiritual resilience is significant to develop when numerous untruthful teachings are revealed. It may prove overwhelming like someone pulling a carpet underneath a person’s feet. The process may hurt like unpeeling bandages off a raw wound. However, in the end, it’s necessary. As testimonies in God’s hand, where’s the triumph in our lives without defeat?

As Psalm 27:1 states, “The LORD is my light and my salvation— so why should I be afraid? The LORD is my fortress, protecting me from danger, so why should I tremble?” So, we have nothing to fear even at the most difficult of obstacles or the severe of disaster.  

Try…Fail…Try…Fail, the only true failure is when we truly stop trying. When we cannot rise with our own power, we reach out to God and to fellowship to steady our stance to walk again. That’s the power of faith, it allows you to manage forward, despite the wind attempting to blow you backward. 

People cannot prevent bad things from happening. However, they can control how they respond. At RESCUE, we teach our followers how to take deceive actions to overcome our darkest, spiritual hour. We mold a spiritual prisoner into a spiritual commander. We turn a religious follower into a conceptual leader. We take the fractured pieces of our people, and we mend them to help guide others on the narrow path of faithful, spiritual resilience.

If you need a hand to hold on the road of spiritual resilience, the RESCUE fellowship group is available on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/groups/rescue/.  They taught me how even the most tormented of people can find a way to peace, myself included. If you require special one-on-one attention, Pastor Pam offers phone-counseling sessions at 888-818-1117. At RESCUE, we call to the broken! Take back your free-will today!
