For the next several weeks we will be providing resources to have a time of Personal/Family Worship on Sunday mornings if you are unable to attend our outdoor worship service at 105 Margaret Dr. Elizabeth City, NC 27909. Below you will find an outline for the time of worship that will include songs via a YouTube playlist, discussion questions, and a video devotional led by Jason. If you would like to print a hard copy of this guide you can access the file HERE each week.

After the video spend some time answering/discussing these questions.
1.How would the psalmist respond to the saying, “God never gives you more than you can handle.”? How do you see in this psalm that there are times that the people of God will experience more than they can handle?
2. Are there in any areas in your life right now where you are experiencing the contempt and scorn of others as you seek to follow Jesus? Who/what is voicing the contempt and scorn? Are there areas in your life now or in the past where you are crying out, “I have had more than enough!” Describe them.
3. When you are overwhelmed and had more than enough, to whom or to what do you lift your eyes? Why? According to the Psalm, to whom are we to lift our eyes?
4. What do you learn about God from this Psalm? What do you learn about the people of God from this Psalm? Why should we lift our eyes to Him?
5. What does the Psalmist ask of God? How long did he have to wait to receive his request? Is his problem resolved by the end of the Psalm? How do you see the Psalmist affirm his trust of the Lord?
6. Are you still waiting for God to have mercy upon you in any aspect of your life? Do you believe that he will show you mercy? Why? How does Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection, give us assurance that God will show his people mercy?
7. Read Revelation 7:9-17. How does the end of the story help you to persevere in looking to God until he shows you mercy?
