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) What areas of life are you needing the Lord, our Shepherd, to hold you up in? He cares for you deeply and is ready to take your burden. His word says, “Come to me, all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-29 Come in silence before the Lord today and let His healing hand cover you.
2) God works in different ways, often in ones we don’t understand or enjoy, to show us something. Think over the trauma, loss, and hurt you have experienced. How have you seen good come from those dark times? If you haven’t seen the good yet, cling to the hope in Jesus’ return when He will restore the world and all creation to perfection.
3) ‘Developing leadership skills’ is a hot topic currently. Choosing to develop our spiritual leadership is also a worthy use of time. Quiet Waters talked about the need to focus on being led by the Lord so we can lead from love. The challenge this week is to choose your next step. Find something you’re not currently doing that you can commit to for seven days. Examples might include spending time in the Word, unvoiced acts of kindness, 15 or 30 minutes of prayer, etc. Share with us at firstname.lastname@example.org how you’ve committed to investing in your relationship with the Lord. We would love to pray for you!
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 Ephesians 1:18-19 back to the Lord and
let His Spirit speak to you through it!
I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened so that you may know what is the hope of his calling, what is the wealth of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the mighty working of his strength.
Father God, the community You offer is amazing. You provide perfect rest, but often I’m so busy being dissatisfied with my current hardship that I miss Your invitation to rest in You. Forgive me Lord for those times, open the eyes of my heart that I would remember the hope I have in You. Remind me of the coming day when You, Jesus, will restore order and heal all things completely. There is so much hope in that truth!
This week Lord, I commit to doing a generous act that costs me money every day. You know that money is not in excess for us; I’m stepping out in faith that we can sort the budget and pinch somewhere else to be generous this week. Deepen my faith in your provision as I see you leading us into (financially) uncomfortable things. Bless my sister Mary as she keeps me accountable. Take this next step of mine and multiply it Lord, for Your glory!
