Teachback Tuesday-Three Common Reasons Why People Reject God

October 31st, 2022

Welcome to Teachback Tuesday, where we play the most popular episodes from the previous season. This week’s episode, “Three Common Reasons Why People Reject God” only covers a few of the common, not the complete list. Many of us know someone who has decided to abandon their walk with God, but do we really understand how hard this decision must have been, let alone what led up to it? There are always reasons for life-altering decisions such as this. This is short list with a call for more compassion.

If you’ve been listening to Keep the Heart regularly, you know that we cover the “issues of life,” and rejecting God is a big issue. The reasons people reject God are so many that if I did an episode with three points every week for a year, we wouldn’t cover them all. We’ll consider three common reasons, encouraging a more careful and thoughtful approach to those who are trapped in unbelief. It is indeed a trap.

Teachback Tuesday-Why Me? and Other Hard Questions

October 24th, 2022

Welcome to Teachback Tuesday, where we play the most popular episodes from the previous season. This week’s episode, “Why Me? and Other Hard Questions” struck a chord with so many listeners, and it’s still being downloaded. Here’s a different yet related question: If we could schedule adversity, when would we want it on our calendars? The “day of adversity” doesn’t make appointments, as we can already tell. This episode provides examples of how we can reframe the hard questions into prayer requests based on Scripture.

The Gifts of Tribulation

October 17th, 2022

What comes to mind when you hear the word “tribulation”? Do you automatically think of something that would happen outside of your life, or do you realize that it could happen inside your very own family? Tribulation doesn’t have boundaries.

I am a fan of looking up definitions, because there are times where there’s more depth to a word than we’re storing in our minds. The word tribulation is one that has layers to it, including these meanings: affliction, trouble, anguish, and persecution. But here’s a short definition of the word: tribulation is pressure. It’s the kind of pressure that causes us distress and feels oppressive and even cruel.

This sounds like something that we would all love to avoid, but tribulation is one of the dark threads in the tapestry of life. We can’t remove it from our fabric, so how can we change the way we view it? By reminding ourselves that tribulation serves a purpose. The wrapping paper of tribulation is ugly, but the gifts inside are priceless. This episode shares three gifts that come from tribulation.
