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) In seasons of trial, it’s easy to question God’s nearness. How do you remind yourself that we can choose to walk in His Truth rather than be overcome by fear? His Word gives us many verses to cling to in moments of doubt. Choose one today to post in your room.

2) ‘No’ is never an enjoyable thing to hear, particularly when it comes as an answer to prayer. Our human tendency is to push back or whine about the results. Give an honest assessment of the last time the Lord disciplined you, or was training you to become more like Him, and journal about it. Can you see His steady hand protecting you? If you cannot yet, wait in expectation for the Lord to reveal it to you someday.
3) Many of us will never have a physical adversary that wants to bring physical harm to us. However, an emotional enemy can feel just as burdensome to endure. Describe a situation you have encountered an enemy. Share the emotion of the situation and how the Lord brought you through that intense time.
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 Colossians 1:9-12 back to the Lord and
let His Spirit speak to you through it!
For this reason also, since the day we heard this, we haven’t stopped praying for you. We are asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding, so that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him: bearing fruit in every good work and growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, so that you may have great endurance and patience, joyfully giving thanks to the Father, who has enabled you to share in the saints’ inheritance in the light.
Heavenly Father, Your steady hand of correction is strong and gentle. I praise You for being in all and over all, able to see the future and know what is BEST for me. In the same way that I lovingly reprimand my children, You do the same for me; providing a sure path for me to follow. Spirit, keep me softened to You that I might respond when You’re speaking to me…even in a ‘no’ that I don’t want to hear.
Lord, as I face this big situation before me, I know You are near. Rather than ask You to remove the bigness, I pray for more of Your knowledge to walk in a way that would be pleasing to You. Show me your power and might over this! I choose to trust in Your faithfulness to Yourself and to Your word. “Lead me on. Lead me on.”
