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
Worship Through Journaling
1) Quiet Spaces. How does that concept strike you? A struggle? A joke? Something offensive? A check marked list? A retreat? An impossibility? Audra insists that regular, intentional Quiet Space is a necessity for a vibrant relationship with Jesus because without quiet, we cannot listen. Are you feeling far from God? Stressed or worried? Find necessary solace in a Quiet Space with the Christ!
2) The psalmist prayed, “Let me remember my song in the night; let me meditate in my heart”, in the middle of deep anguish. His wasn’t a lofty, holy prayer, but a desperate, tear-stained, gut-aching beseech to the Almighty. Don’t have it together? Grasping at straws? Aching with a pain no one sees? This song is for you. What’s more, this Almighty is for you. Make some space to write out your own “Song In The Night”. Describe your “night”, be honest, and then be willing to anchor your hope in the unchanging, ever present Holy One.
3) When was the last time you entered the Lord’s house of worship with pure delight? When was the last time your whole being just ached to be in His holy presence in the midst of other believers? What does “church” usually feel like to you? If you find yourself coming up dry, having lost some of the wonder and awe of following Jesus, perhaps your focus has shifted from Beautiful Person to just a place. Spend time just sitting with the Lord today as you prepare for community worship this weekend. Read His Word, tell Him what you’re grateful for, and meditate on His attributes. Sit With HIM!
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 84:1-2 back to the Lord and
let His Spirit speak to you through it!
How lovely is your dwelling place,
O Lord of hosts!
My soul longs, yes, faints
for the courts of the Lord;
my heart and flesh sing for joy
to the living God.
Ah Lord, so holy and awesome, righteous, and glorious. Utterly unapproachable are You! Yet, You beckon me to come near, and nearer still. Into Your Presence, to see Your heart, to know Your fullness, to experience wonder and awe. You persistently and passionately pursue me, day after day, moment after moment, forever holding out everlasting arms of love to me.
This love humbles me, Abba. I’m so undeserving, and, ashamedly, I push You away for a hundred lesser things. Renew my passion for You, whet my appetite, draw me again and again and again into Your presence until I become so drunk on the pleasure of Your presence, I want for nothing else. Let me see Your beauty, Lord. Show me Your glory. Awaken my heart.
