The GT Weekend!
At Gracefully Truthful, weekends aren’t for “checking out”.
Use this time to invite the Almighty’s fullness into you life in a deeper way!
Saturdays and Sundays are a chance to
reflect, rest, and re-center our lives onto Christ.
Don’t miss the opportunity to connect with other women in prayer,
rest your soul in reflective journaling,
and spend time worshiping the Creator who
longs for intimacy with each of us!
Worship Through Journaling
Worship Through Journaling
1) Take time to process where you are with the Lord.
Are you in a season of running away from Him? What has brought you to this place? Lay those at the feet of Jesus, He welcomes you with open arms.
Are you walking in step with Him? What has brought you to this place? Ask Him to protect you from the snares of the evil one.
2) In 2 Corinthians 5:16-20, Paul paints a beautiful picture of what happens when we surrender to His will. Our hearts are completely changed; made new. Our previous identity is completely gone, not simply tweaked. God reconciles us back to Himself and then asks us to draw others into reconciliation with Him as well. Read through this passage and mark the cause/effect situations. Leave your previous identity behind and be made new!
3) God is jealous after you, dear sister. He wants your time, your devotion, your praise to be His and His alone. Make several lists of how you are using your time, who you worship, and who you give the glory to. Pray over these lists and see where you can adjust your eyes even more carefully to God.
Praying Scripture back to the One who wrote it in the first place is a great way to jump start our prayer-life! Pray this passage from Isaiah 40:6b-8 back to the Lord and
let His Spirit speak to you through it!
All people are like grass, and all their faithfulness is like the flowers of the field.
7The grass withers and the flowers fall, because the breath of the Lord blows on them. Surely the people are grass. 8The grass withers and the flowers fall,
but the word of our God endures forever.”
O God, by whom the meek are guided in judgment, and
light riseth up in darkness for the godly: Grant us, in all
our doubts and uncertainties, the grace to ask what thou
wouldest have us to do, that the Spirit of wisdom may save
us from all false choices, and that in thy light we may see
light, and in thy straight path may not stumble; through
Jesus Christ our Lord.
Direct us, O Lord, in all our doings with thy most gracious
favor, and further us with thy continual help; that in all our
works begun, continued, and ended in thee, we may glorify
thy holy Name, and finally, by thy mercy, obtain everlasting
life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
