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 studying the specifics of the tabernacle of the Old Testament, and how clearly it points to Jesus fulfilling the requirements once and for all, we see that God is all about the details. Nothing He does is careless or without intention. We can rest in His character being unchanging, and know He is working in our lives; in the big things and in the small. Where have you seen Him at work today?
2) What lies are you hearing from the Devil about your lack of gifts to bring to the Body? How can you get plugged in locally to use your God given gifts to bring Him glory? Not sure what your gifting is? Find a friend and read through 1 Corinthians 12:4-7. What do you feel strongest in? Pray for the Holy Spirit to use you in every situation, whether it matches your gifting or not, to further the Kingdom of God!
3) When you’ve read through the Bible, which parts were easiest to read? Which places felt boring or longwinded? How has the study of Old Testimony prophesies, and the fulfillment Jesus brought, strengthened your commitment to studying the Word more deeply?

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 139:13-18 back to the Lord and
let His Spirit speak to you through it!
13For it was you who created my inward parts;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I will praise you
because I have been remarkably and wondrously made.
Your works are wondrous,
and I know this very well.
15 My bones were not hidden from you
when I was made in secret,
when I was formed in the depths of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw me when I was formless;
all my days were written in your book and planned
before a single one of them began.
17 God, how precious your thoughts are
how vast their sum is!
18 If I counted them,
they would outnumber the grains of sand;
when I wake up, I am still with you.
Lord, as I look at the chaos that surrounds me in our world, even in my life, I struggle to see Your order. I see families torn apart, children exploited, and the wealth gap increasing. All of that lacks Your perfect order, and I’m quick to question where You are in all this mess. Remind me Lord that this wasn’t Your design. Man chose this back in the Garden of Eden and has been choosing “self” over You ever since. Show me how and where You are working in the details of our world, Lord God. Rain down Your Presence over us as we look for Your actions in our lives. Let us recognize You quickly and put feet to whatever it is You’re asking us to do!
