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!

1) Does the idea of mission work strike fear inside or fill you with delight? We tend to think of missions only in the context of overseas, but the Lord’s work is everywhere. His desire is for all nations and all peoples to experience His rescuing love, and that includes all the places you are comfortable going in everyday life and all the places you’ve silently vowed you’d never go. Maybe you aren’t called overseas, but maybe you are and fear stops you from even trying. What you are called into as a Christ-follower is missions, the “where” is the only question. Check out the mission opportunities at your church, both local and abroad, keep your eyes on the Savior’s, and follow in obedience just one step at a time!
2) Do you ever feel like your prayers don’t matter? What if these are just words we say without Someone to hear and respond? Yes? Me too. These are lies from an enemy who wants nothing more than to steal, kill, and destroy us and our sweet relationship with the Father through prayer. If prayer were not so powerful, the lies circling about it wouldn’t be so tempting. Think through your prayer list, what are your requests most often made? Health? Safety? Thank you for this food? Leaders of nations to walk in wise counsel? The unity of the church locally and globally? The tenacity of our persecuted brothers and sisters? This weekend, choose to stretch both your prayer list and your faith. Refuse to believe lies about prayer’s effectiveness, and stand in the gap for those we need our prayer!
3) If we are truly all, as Christ-followers, called to go. Where is your ‘go? What is stopping you from acting on that “go”? Be honest with yourself and with God and lay out your fears. Or maybe you’ve already gone, maybe you’re in the middle of a difficult, but obedient “go”. Maybe you have some disappointments, are feeling discouraged, or lonely, or are running on empty. Maybe you find yourself wondering why you chose to “go”. Please, lay those before the throne too, Sister. Whatever part of Go you find yourself in, spend time being gut-honest with the Lord who calls and faithfully equips, and ask Him to remind you what it means to give your life to save another.
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 Acts 16:9-10 back to the Lord and
let His Spirit speak to you through it!
And a vision appeared to Paul in the night: a man of Macedonia was standing there, urging him and saying, “Come over to Macedonia and help us.” And when Paul had seen the vision, immediately we sought to go on into Macedonia, concluding that God had called us to preach the gospel to them.
Your call on our lives is clear, Lord, to make Your Name known to all. Lord God, break our hearts for what breaks Yours! Teach us what it means to give our life for another just as You did for us. Ignite within us a passion for reaching, for loving, and an unquenchable thirst to go wherever Your Spirit leads us. Take us into Your presence, let us not leave unchanged. May we hear the cry of our fellow mankind, tune our ears to hear their desperate plea for a love that rescues. May we obediently display our love for You by going where you send!
