Review this week's message.

Start talking. Find a conversation starter for your group.
  • If you were to write a book, what would it be about?
  • You're offered an all expense paid vacation. Where are you going?

Start thinking. Ask a thoughtful question.
  • What does it look like to still believe in the goodness of God even when you feel anxious, worried, and fearful?
  • According to Hebrews 13:8, Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. How does hearing this truth make you feel? Share a time of anxiety in your past when Jesus took care of you.

Start sharing. Choose questions that create openness.
  • "Scripture is the script-cure”.  Whatever mental health struggle you are having, God speaks to it directly through His Word. Take a few minutes to find a verse that speaks to your struggle. Go around the room and share them with your Lifegroup!
  • Sometimes, we feel anxious because we do not trust in God's timing. What (if anything) is causing anxiety in your life that can be fixed through truly trusting God's timing?

Start praying. Be bold, and pray with power.

Jesus, please calm my heart today and give me peace that surpasses all understanding. I love you. Amen.

Start doing. Commit to a step and live it out this week.
  • Bring someone to church with you next week.
  • With your Lifegroup, decide what you can bring to “Stuff The Truck” next weekend benefiting our Westside Mission!
