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) Nehemiah was faithful to the task before him and didn’t waver when he was mocked or when division crept in. What is God asking you to be faithful to? Are there places you know you are doing what God asked, but it’s getting difficult to carry on? Cling to Scripture for your encouragement; our God’s promises and His character are the same yesterday, today and tomorrow!
2) Life can feel mundane and ordinary very quickly! Scripture says we are to offer our lives to God as a sacrifice. Its our way of stopping what we want to do and following in faith that God will lead us well into whatever is coming next. Where is your life feeling boring? Offer that space to the Lord and watch Him use it to further His kingdom!
3) Our past mistakes can hold us down like a ball and chain, constantly taking us back to where we’ve sinned and messed up. However, if we’ve repented of the sin and asked forgiveness, we can hold tight to the truth that we’ve been forgiven. God isn’t holding those mistakes over our head, taunting us with our failures. Where are you holding on to old history that God has set you free from? Where do you need to ask for forgiveness? Any places you need to walk forward in victory?
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 Hebrews 13-14-16 back to the Lord and
let His Spirit speak to you through it!
14 For we do not have an enduring city here; instead, we seek the one to come. 15 Therefore, through him let us continually offer up to God a sacrifice of praise, that is, the fruit of lips that confess his name. 16 Don’t neglect to do what is good and to share, for God is pleased with such sacrifices.
O God the Father, Creator of heaven and earth, Have mercy upon us.
O God the Son, Redeemer of the world, Have mercy upon us.
O God the Holy Ghost, Sanctifier of the faithful, Have mercy upon us.
O holy, blessed, and glorious Trinity, one God, Have mercy upon us.
Remember not, Lord Christ, our offenses, nor the offenses of our forefathers; neither reward us according to our sins.
Spare us, good Lord, spare thy people, whom thou hast redeemed with thy most precious blood, and by thy mercy preserve us for ever.
Spare us, good Lord.
From all evil and wickedness; from sin; from the crafts and assaults of the devil; and from everlasting damnation, Good Lord, deliver us.
By thine Agony and Bloody Sweat; by thy Cross and Passion; by thy precious Death and Burial; by thy glorious Resurrection and Ascension; and by the Coming of the Holy Ghost, Good Lord, deliver us.
In all time of our tribulation; in all time of our prosperity; in the hour of death, and in the day of judgment, Good Lord, deliver us.
