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) Money is necessary to live life. People that have money are commanded to steward it well. How do you balance between living with what God has given you and the pursuit of money? Where are you still needing to transfer your dependency to God’s supreme power rather than on your ability to make ends meet?
2) In thinking through things that make us happy, write out a list of things that bring happiness. Go back through your list and try to tie each item to Scripture. If you are unable to tie it back, pray about releasing that item from your list. Search for lasting truths from Scripture to cling to in bringing happiness.
3) Our human nature takes effort to fight against it. The devil wants us to believe we are doing enough on our own; that our good works are sufficient and we don’t need Jesus. Being firmly rooted in Scripture is the best defense in moments like these. What have you been memorizing recently? How can you add to your memory bank of verses to call on when you feel tempted to do it on your own?
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 Revelation 1:5b-8 back to the Lord and
let His Spirit speak to you through it!
To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood and made us a kingdom, priests to his God and Father, to him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen. Behold, he is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see him, even those who pierced him, and all tribes of the earth will wail on account of him.
Even so. Amen. I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.”
Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come, how can I go about thinking I can do anything on my own? It’s ridiculous to think of; I have nothing without You. All I have, You’ve prepared it for me. I know that in my head, but somehow I let untruth sneak into my heart. I’m sorry for that Lord. Accept my offer of repentance.
This week, Father, bring Scripture that I’ve memorized back before me. I’m thankful I was able to hide so many verses in my heart as a child. As I’m tempted to ignore God’s leading and lean on my own skills, bring those verses to mind that I might remember the depth of my lostness and be obedient to their teachings. Encourage my heart, Lord, to commit to memory a new verse every day of this week. For your glory, Lord!
