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) Fearfully and wonderfully made? Or flawed, broken, scarred, discarded, and of little value? See, we can’t hold both as being true, Sisters. They are too far apart. Can I tell you transparently I’ve held onto one set of phrases for the majority of my life while keeping the other set in the trash? And it nearly took my life. Apart from Jesus, our past, our sins, and our shame will forever weigh us down, keeping us far from wholeness and peace. But with Jesus, shame is gone, condemnation has no place, and truth is anchored deeply in our hearts. Fearfully and wonderfully made! You and me! Choose this day what you will believe, and carry it with you as you let truth define you!
2) Every single believer is part of every other believer. We are connected, each to the other. Which means that when we choose to pull out and away from the Body of Christ in our local churches, we make a rippling impact on the effectiveness of our church. How we view ourselves, directly affects the health of our churches! How often do you feel called and empowered to dig deep and serve and engage in your local body? Truth? Regardless of how you feel, you are called to exactly this! Lean in to this truth, wear those robes of royalty as Daughter of the King, and love your local church! What can you begin doing even this weekend to make an intentional shift?!
3) Extending the crown of Treasure to others, especially those we wouldn’t normally engage with, can feel uncomfortable, even intimidating. But consider, how comfortable was it for Christ to leave His throneroom of endless glory, be wrapped in finite, human flesh, live out the sufferable human life, and die a cruel, shameful death…all that we would become His treasures?! Unfathomable, isn’t it?! Truly, if this King of Kings would lay aside every rightful glory in order to love us more lavishly than we’ve ever known, surely we can step up and love another outside our own comfort zone! Start praying now, this moment, for who the Lord wants you to love lavishly!
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 12:3-5 back to the Lord and
let His Spirit speak to you through it!
For by the grace given to me, I tell everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he should think. Instead, think sensibly, as God has distributed a measure of faith to each one. 4 Now as we have many parts in one body, and all the parts do not have the same function, 5 in the same way we who are many are one body in Christ and individually members of one another.
Father, as we close out this Journey Study of Treasure, sink the truths we’ve uncovered deep into the DNA of our souls. Remind us, Holy Spirit, who we are, who we are called to be, and how you see us as righteous, lovely, handcrafted intentional vessels of your glorious love. Remind us of the high calling You’ve placed on our everyday lives to love well, to hold tightly to truth, and declare your love to the world around us. We are not our own, Father. Praise You for that! We are all parts of another within Your wonderfully crafted Bride. Urge us to dig in, to serve, to care, to cheer on others, and point them ever closer to Your heart. Thank You for calling us Your most Treasured Ones!
