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) On Monday, Sara shared the difference between “Wonder Woman” and a “Wondering Woman”. How easy it is for us to pursue control in our situations and chase after our solutions rather than slow down and ask the Lord. It’s a challenge to be still, sit, and dwell with the Lord on a regular basis. What would it look like in your life if you intentionally chose to regularly make time with the Lord just to be with Him? Make specific plans this weekend for how you will accomplish this over the next week and let a friend know too, asking her to hold you accountable to really dwelling with the Lord and seeking His ways instead of our own!
2) Bri Bailey wrote, ““I can’t do it anymore. It’s too big, too hard, hurts too much. I can’t.”” Can you, or have you ever, been able to relate to this? In what ways? What specific hurts brought too much pain, what burdens were simply too heavy? How have you walked through those time in the past? What would it mean to you to have a trusted refuge, someone to lift your head when you couldn’t and hold your hand when you were alone? Know that the Lord is exactly that! If you haven’t experienced that from Him, reach out! We’d love to help you connect with a local church community to help you grow deeper!
3) Yesterday, Tawnya shared some tactics she used to keep her heart and mind focused on truth despite her overwhelming circumstances. Consider using time this weekend to do the same and prepare your own heart to be awakened by truth next week instead of overwhelmed. Make some index cards to put in your purse with Scripture truths on them, make a playlist of encouraging music declaring truth to play on your phone, and select Scriptures from this week’s Journey Studies and spend time slowly reading them to wrap your heart in truth.
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 Psalm 150 back to the Lord and
let His Spirit speak to you through it!
Praise him with trumpet blast;
praise him with harp and lyre.
Praise him with tambourine and dance;
praise him with strings and flute.
Praise him with resounding cymbals;
praise him with clashing cymbals.
Let everything that breathes praise the Lord.
Hallelujah, what a Savior You are! Your rich character is vast beyond description! To sit here in Your presence is a gift too precious for words. Here, at Your feet, gazing at Your glory, swept up in the beauty of You, my anxieties fall away, the pressures of success fade, and my need for You is filled so sweetly.
Father, to be with You, to praise You, to declare Your goodness is life-giving, but I know I so easily prioritize a million lesser “loves”, counterfeits to You. Bring these idols to my mind that I might confess them before You as You renew my soul to sing and dance for You, Mighty God!
