Pour Out Your Heart
Pour Out Your Heart
Review Pastor Craig’s points to remember what stuck out to you from the message.
"God was faithful enough not to give me what I asked for, but to give me what I needed."
"The very thing I hated in that season, I can look back and see His purpose and plan for it."
As you pour out your heart:
1. Remember God’s faithfulness in the ** past.
2. Trust in God’s **power for your future.
"Push through your pain to the point of praise."
Psalm 102:1-2, 5, 7-8, 12, 17
"Cry out to Him; He can handle it."
"He has always been faithful in the past, He is good in the future, therefore we can trust Him with our future."
Start with an icebreaker question to get everyone talking. Then choose questions that will work well with your group.
- If you were poured out into a cup, what kind of drink would you be?
- Thumb, blanky, mom? How did you find refuge as a kid?
- Share some ways you’ve seen God’s faithfulness in the past.
- Where is your safe place? How often do you go there?
- What does holiness mean to you? How often do you reflect on who God is?
- Who do you pour out your heart to? Why do you trust them?
- What are some things that you need to pour out to God? Why have you been holding on to those things so closely?
- Talk about the last time it was just really hard to worship. How did you break through?
- When did you last unload to God? What happened next?
- How do you keep track of what God has done for you?
- Does your worship come from the depths of your soul? If yes, how does that look, if no, what are some barriers?
- Which parts of your future do you need to entrust to God’s power?

Live It Out
End each week with a challenge to take action. Lead your group to help each person identify their next steps.
- Discuss as a group how you’ll remember God’s faithfulness. Is it journaling or phone reminders? Is there an app for that?
- Make a list of situations that require God’s power. Bring your list to God in worship this week.
- What is heavy on your heart that our group could pray with you about? How can we worship through these issues together?
