Sharing an idea today for a ladies meeting revolving around being "crushed".  We all have burdens to bear at one time or another so I’m sure we have all had times that we’ve felt crushed.  

I am so glad there are so many places in Scripture that I can run to when I’m feeling that way.

Spiritual Application

Going through the "crushed" times in our lives with the help and strength of the Lord. 

Theme Verse Suggestions

We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;

Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;  2 Corinthians 4:8, 9

Devotional/Lesson Suggestions

Crushed by Julia

Crush Your Worries Tear Off Sheet

This printable has the references in the tear off tabs that I mention in the devotional.  

Have it posted on a bulletin board or on a clip board before your meeting.  Have your ladies tear off one tab as they arrive.  Call on those ladies during the meeting to read the Bible verse they tore off.

You can also hand these out and encourage your ladies to post them on community bulletin boards such as in laundry mats, office spaces, etc.
