I Have Questions- Week 2
Hey, can I ask you something? Does life kind of hurt right now?
Maybe it's a broken relationship, the loss of a loved one, or an unexpected difficulty. In these moments, you might wonder things like, "Why is this happening to me?" Or even, "God, have you left me?"
We actually see this question asked twice in the Bible.
First, by King David, who wanted to know if God had abandoned him. But then it's asked again by someone
else, hundreds of years later.
The second time, it's asked by Jesus, who is preparing to die for you and
me. Jesus, God Himself, asks, "God, have you abandoned me?"
So if you've ever wondered, "When I’m hurting, does God leave me?" the answer is no.
In our pain, Jesus is more present than ever because He understands. In our pain, He's not absent. He's actually reaching for us.
Agree or Disagree: Cat are cooler than dogs.
Pick Your Top 3: Top three movies.
Would you rather: take a coding class (computers) or an art class?
2 Corinthians 1:3-4 NLT
3 All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort. 4 He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us.
On note cards, ask everyone to write one difficult thing they're going through (or have gone through). They don't need to write their names, but they can! Exchange cards randomly and commit to praying for each other during the week. Or as a family, post the card somewhere everyone can be reminded of these throughout the week.
