  2. What are some things the women may have wondered or said to one another?
  3. Read Psalm 121 aloud. The theme of looking up or lifting one’s eyes is key here and in the Mark passage. What does it mean practically to “look up” in times of struggle?
  4. Refer to 2 Kings 6:15–17. What does Elisha know that his servant does not? Describe a time when you have been in Elisha’s place and a time when you have been in the servant’s.
  5. In each of these passages, God is at work in the circumstances. When did that work begin? In what situation in your life do you need to trust that the Lord is at work?
  6. What can you learn and apply from these stories to your own challenges?
