It is human nature to focus on what we can’t do and what we don’t have. But if we focus on these things too long we end up in a cycle of discontentment, frustration, and sadness. But there’s another choice. A choice that can lead to contentment and even happiness no matter what we might lose.

- How do you usually deal with loss and not being able to do the things you want to do? Has that changed over the past few months?
- Read all of Psalm 103. David lists many ways in which God is FOR us. What stands out to you? Are there any that seem difficult to believe or trust for you right now?
- What have you lost? Share this with your group. What are you thankful for? Share this, too. Spend some time in prayer sharing these losses & thanksgivings.
