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) Fear is a deep motivator that can twist our thinking and influence our actions. If we have decided to follow the Lord, we have the hope of Scripture to cling to, helping us hold onto truth when it would be easy to live out of fear instead. John says that perfect love casts out fear. Love shared between humans is flawed because of our sin, but the love of the Father is perfect. We can rest in the promise that we don’t need to fear His wrath, His presence, or His work in our lives.
2) Make a list of what you believe about God’s character. Which features stand out to you? Where did you learn these ideas? Read back through Scripture and find truths about God’s character. Write those on your list and compare what you believe with what Scripture says. Ask the Holy Spirit to align your beliefs with what the Bible, our ultimate authority on truth, says about God’s character.
3) Being able to boldly and confidently approach the Throne of Grace should be held hand-in-hand with an awareness of our natural tendency to be too casual as we meet with the Lord. How do you personally balance these two? What passages of Scripture have helped you manage these two ideas in harmony? Comment below or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
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 8:31-34 back to the Lord and
let His Spirit speak to you through it!
31 What then are we to say about these things? If God is for us, who is against us? 32 He did not even spare his own Son but offered him up for us all. How will he not also with him grant us everything? 33 Who can bring an accusation against God’s elect? God is the one who justifies. 34 Who is the one who condemns? Christ Jesus is the one who died, but even more, has been raised; he also is at the right hand of God and intercedes for us.
Father, we praise You for the ability to speak to You directly through Jesus. We love that open relationship and the instant access You have prepared for us by giving us Your Son. Remind us to not take this gift lightly. Spirit, convict us of unconfessed sin that may be hindering our relationship with You.
This week, as I think through Your character, Father, let me see You with clear eyes. Peel back the lies that are lingering deep in my soul. As I look to Scripture to see more clearly who You are and how You operate, show me Your face, Lord. Teach me to continuously reevaluate my thoughts of You and watch out for lies the evil one has planted in my heart
