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
1)The Lord shows His love by rejoicing with truth. He celebrates when truth is shared, when it is embraced, and when His children choose to walk in this truth, anchoring their lives on it. Where do you celebrate and welcome truth? When someone confronts you with truth, this is love! When the Holy Spirit brings Scripture to mind to teach and train you, celebrate this act of love! Ask the Lord to make your lips and life and conduit for love to speak truth with grace!
2)Audra wrote of God’s “bearing up” love, His love that “believes”, “hopes”, and most importantly “endures”.Where do you see Christ’s love displaying these traits in your life? How does that reality of His present love encourage you for the future you face? Be specific as you think of your answer, refusing to give a glib response. Where do you desperately need Christ’s love demonstrated with these traits in your life? Thinking differently, who do you know who needs these traits demonstrated to them? Pray specifically over the names the Lord brings to mind, asking how you can extend His love to them.
3)Sister, where are your broken places? The ones coming to mind as you read this.The sore spots that ache with wounds going deeper than most, if anyone, realizes. Scripture reminds that because God’s essence of love, He Will Never Fail. Never fail to redeem the broken, never fail to stay committed, never fail to always be present. How does this picture of God re-frame how you see your circumstances? What if you took the Lord at His faithful promise to never ever ever fail on His love for you? Who loves you as the Lord does?!
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 Romans 8:38-39 back to the Lord and
let His Spirit speak to you through it!
For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Father, Your love is vast. Too wide, too deep, too limitless to even begin to comprehend. Yet, somehow, I still manage to place Your love in a very small box. Too small for my broken relationships, too small for the huge tasks in front of me, too small to comfort my aching heart, too small to bring real comfort. And as I dwell on “small love” lies, my love for others shrinks also. Lord, pour the truth of Your unconditional, never-ending, grace-filled,all-patient, good, kind, generous, hope-filled lavish love over me! Remind me I can never outrun Your love. Fill me up with these truths that others might experience Your love through me! With the smallness of my love, just as a small child would mimic back love to a parent, ‘how I love Thee, Abba!”.
