September 22, 2019: Jacob and God Wrestle, Struggle, and Blessing

Discussion Questions

Do you enjoy wrestling and roughhousing?  Why or why not?

Describe a time you felt like you were struggling with God?

When have you (or have you) experienced blessing as a result of or in the aftermath of a struggle?  Describe that experience.

Acting on the Word

Find someone you have reason to believe is struggling and in need of a blessing and give them the blessing card you received today.  (We plan to have a supply available each week, so feel free to do this more than once!)
