NEHEMIAH \u2013 PART 4
YOUNG ADULT CELLS DEC 2005 WEEK 2
DEALING WITH DISCOURAGEMENT
Leader\u2019s Notes
FOCUS (10 mins)
Brainstorming Exercise:
Prepare a whiteboard or big piece of paper and divide it into two
columns.
Tell them that all of us had at one time of other been discouraged
before.
Explain that discouragement is something that has plagued every

human being. No matter who were are, rich or poor, educated or uneducated, man or woman, powerful politician or normal citizens, we have been discouraged before.

Ask if they agree. (All will agree).

On the paper, write down \u201cCauses\u201d and \u201cCures\u201d on each column and ask them to brainstorm on what are the causes and cures of discouragement.

Summarize their answers. Remember there are no wrong answers.

Next, move from the general causes and cures to personal sharing byasking if they can remember a time when they were discouraged and how they deal with it.

Give time for those members who want to share.
Again,summarize or paraphrase their answers, be quick to affirm
spiritually right answers.
Tell them that today\u2019s lesson is dealing with discouragement.
You can hand out the lesson notes at this time.

You canread the last paragraph of the introduction andexplain that we will look at three causes and cures of discouragement from the passage in Nehemiah.

Read the objectives of the lesson to the people as well.
Tell them that the causes and cures in the notes are not
exhaustive but what we can glean from the passage in Nehemiah.

II. The Causes of Discouragement (15 mins)
Have someone read Neh 4:6-12.
A. Fatigue
Explain that fatigue is the first cause of discouragement using the
information in the member\u2019s notes.
Ask the discussion question:

You may look around and direct someone to share. You may also share something personal about projects that you have given up halfway.

Get another person to Read 1 Kings 19:3-9.
Ask him/her to explain the situation or describe the story up to the
passage. Ask him/her what was God\u2019s solution for Elijah?
Answer\ue000 rest and nourishment.
Say, if we are tired, sometime the most spiritual thing to do is to
sleep.
B. Frustration
Again, ask the first person to repeat verse 10.

Explain the second cause of discouragement is frustration. Paint a picture (in words) for them about the amount of rubble, debris, stones, burn-down gates that the people has to clear.

Learning Outcomes:
Understanding, Behaviour
Objective:
At the end of this lesson, you
will be able to:
\u2022Remember
3
causes
of
discouragement.
\u2022Implement
3
cures
for
discouragement in your life.
\u2022Encourage
and
spur
one
another in a practical way.
As the lesson is quite
straight-forward,
I

don\u2019t think there is a necessity to divide the cell into small groups.

Eg. Packing your room, bring out all the stuffs on the floor, but halfway through tired and leave it lying around overnight. Scolded by mum etc.
