Broken Hearted week 1
How To Heal A Broken Heart
Review this week's message.
God will never let a broken heart go to waste.
“You can either choose to get on your knees or have your legs knocked out from under you.” Pastor Bil Cornelius
Start talking. Find a conversation starter for your group.
- What do you think of romance and drama shows? Have you ever been interested in them?
- Who was your first school age crush? How did it work out?
- How does social media play a part in making people feel alone?
- What is your go-to escape when your feeling broken-hearted?
Start thinking. Ask a thoughtful question.
- Why do you think LifeGroups are so important? What’s the big deal about community?
- What does surrender of our broken hearts to God look like? What does it mean to surrender?
- Why does God tell us it’s not good to be alone?
- How does surrendering to God actually start the healing process?
Start sharing. Choose questions that create openness.
- Have you ever had your heart “broken”? What was that like?
- Are you involved in the “U”? What do you believe your next step is in your walk with Christ?
- How can knowing God is working everything out for our good change our perspective in the midst of heartache?
- God has given us relationships for a reason. Are there any unhealthy relationships that are pulling you away from Christ that you need to step back from? What Godly relationships can you invest that time in, instead?
Start praying. Be bold, and pray with power.
Dear Jesus, thank you that you are always near. You are a God of your word, and we can rest easy knowing that we are never alone. You are always faithful, always close, always full of grace. Thank you for that. In your name we pray, Amen.
Start doing. Commit to a step and live it out this week.
- At Church Unlimited, LifeGroups are the primary way in which we can stay connected, grow in our relationship with Jesus, and do life together throughout the week. As our church grows, it’s also important for more LifeGroups to form so that more people have the opportunity to get connected in meaningful relationships. Seriously consider becoming a LifeGroup Leader to help make room for more people to grow.
- Everybody has, or will, face a broken heart at some point in their lives. Pain, trials, insults, hardships, and suffering are all inevitable at one point or another, and our response to it will result in either more hardship or massive growth in our walk with Christ. Some people you know are facing broken-heartedness right now, and an invite to church next week could be just what they need to help them in their healing. Think of one person you know who could use next week’s message and bring them to church with you.
- Do you know people who aren’t in a LifeGroup? As a group, brainstorm a plan to get them connected to a LifeGroup of their own, then put the plan in action.
- What’s something you need to cry out to God about? Spend time praying as a group over these things.
He heals the brokenhearted and bandages their wounds. Psalm 147:3 NLT
I cry out to God; I call to God, and he will hear me. Psalm 77:1 NCV
The LORD is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit. Psalm 34:18 ESV
So let God work his will in you. Yell a loud no to the Devil and watch him scamper. Say a quiet yes to God and he’ll be there in no time. Quit dabbling in sin. Purify your inner life. Quit playing the field. Hit bottom, and cry your eyes out. The fun and games are over. Get serious, really serious. Get down on your knees before the Master; it’s the only way you’ll get on your feet. James 4:7-10 MSG
Their insults have broken my heart, and I am in despair. If only one person would show some pity; if only one would turn and comfort me. Psalm 69:20 NLT
Some people have gotten out of the habit of meeting for worship, but we must not do that. We should keep on encouraging each other.. Hebrews 10:25 CEV
And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, Who has called you to His [own] eternal glory in Christ Jesus, will Himself complete and make you what you ought to be, establish and ground you securely, and strengthen, and settle you. 1 Peter 5:10 AMP
