CHRISTIAN WOMEN’S RETREAT THEME: HEALER OF BROKEN HEARTS
The death of a loved one, the end of a relationship, the loss of something dear…we all suffer heartache. Heartbreak. These are the moments that will define us if we let them. Thankfully, God promises He will mend our broken hearts if only we turn to Him.
John 14:27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
Psalm 34:18 The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
Psalm 147:3 He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.
Romans 8:28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
Philippians 4:6-7 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Healer of Broken Hearts Icebreakers:
Divide everyone into smaller groups of 4-6.
Say to the groups: Pretend you have a chance to have a conversation with a person from the Bible besides Jesus. Who would it be, why them, and what would you want to talk about? Have each person share with their small group.
