Songs often come from an honest place. From a place of pain, or groaning, songs emerge wehn trouble comes. Join Chuck Mingo as he processes how God has been interacting with him through trouble.
Process, journal or discuss the themes of this article - here's a few questions to get the ball rolling...
Welcome to the Weekend-Follow Up This is the group part of the Bible Challenge, so your questions are based on specific Bible passages from the weekend message. Each week, your group will discover what God might be saying to you, and how you can respond through a group discussion.
What stood out to you most from the message?
Why do you think that stood out to you? What do you think God might be trying to say? (It’s ok if you’re just guessing. This will give you some space to process what it might be.)
In what ways does your life feel like a “warzone” today? What challenges do you currently face?
When faced with trouble, which coping mechanism do you find yourself choosing the most: Denial, Despair, or Dependence on God? Why?
Do you feel like you can depend on God when trouble comes? Why or why not?
What is one way you can respond to what God might be saying to you this week? For example, if you think he wants you to start reading the Bible more, joining the Bible Challenge for the next series could be one way to take action.
Now share a prayer request for the week. Whoever loves taking notes can jot them down (and maybe put them in a group chat, if you have one). Make sure to go around the circle and pray for each other at the end of your meeting, and throughout the week.
