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) Write out your average daily schedule. Note the items or tasks that take your time. Who do you prioritize? Who gets crammed in the leftover gaps? Ask the Holy Spirit to show you places you’re needing some adjustment. Be obedient and respond in the ways He directs.
2) In our Wednesday Journey Study, Sara asked us to reflect on moments we saw the Lord’s love for us. Taking that one step farther, think through the people that have spoken His love and truth over you. Who shared words of encouragement that reminded you of God’s great love for you? Which sister sent Scripture just when you needed it? Write that person a thank you note/text/email this week telling them how much you appreciated them speaking into your life.
3) As humans, we struggle receiving mercy and grace. The idea of a “free gift”, with no strings attached, is uncomfortable. There is no need to work harder by doing good things before the Almighty. Write out Hosea 14:4-8 and keep it in a prominent place this week. God is ready to pour out His mercy and grace over you, just come to 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 139:9-10 back to the Lord and
let His Spirit speak to you through it!
If I live at the eastern horizon or settle at the western limits, even there your hand will lead me; your right hand will hold on to me. If I say,
“Surely the darkness will hide me,
and the light around me will be night”—
even the darkness is not dark to you.
The night shines like the day; darkness and light are alike to you.
Father, as I look over my schedule, I see lots of good things. Prayer calls, Wednesday night kids, and meetings with students. But I also know my tendency. My heart wants to pick up doing these good things…for my glory rather than Yours. None of my good works are earning my salvation, my heart longs to do them out of gratitude over the New Life You’ve given me. Forgive me for the moments when I do something because I want to hear “Sara, you did a good job”. Mold my heart to look more like Yours, Lord.
Lord, I have been blessed by many women who have spoken truth in my life. I have learned so much from their wisdom and walk with you. What a blessing! Remind me, Lord, to pass along words of encouragement when you bring the idea to mind. Sometimes I’m too shy to talk to someone about spiritual things. Embolden me Lord. Lead me by the hand, dear Father.
