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) Reflect for a moment on the death of Jesus. Read back through the account of Jesus’ crucifixion in Matthew 27. What does the cross mean to you? What emotion is stirred up while you read? Who in your life needs to hear the Good News of Jesus’ death and resurrection?
2) Write out Ephesians 6:13-15 and post it in a prominent place. Examine the different pieces of protection God offers you to put on. How can you actively choose to wear these defenses in the battle against the devil? Which ones are easier to pick up? Which ones are more difficult?
3) If you are a follower of Jesus, you have access to the power of Jesus displayed in His death and resurrection. Why do you think it’s so easy to ignore that power? Why do we skip calling on the name of Jesus when we’re tempted in sin? Or when we need boldness to share His Truth with someone? If you have yet to surrender your life to Christ, reach out to us with your questions at firstname.lastname@example.org .
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 1:7-14 back to the Lord and
let His Spirit speak to you through it!
In Him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace that he richly poured out on us with all wisdom and understanding. He made known to us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure that he purposed in Christ 10 as a plan for the right time—to bring everything together in Christ, both things in heaven and things on earth in him.
In him we have also received an inheritance, because we were predestined according to the plan of the one who works out everything in agreement with the purpose of his will, so that we who had already put our hope in Christ might bring praise to his glory.
In him you also were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and when you believed. The Holy Spirit is the down payment of our inheritance, until the redemption of the possession, to the praise of his glory.
Dear Father, as I sit and reflect on Your good gift of life through Your son Jesus, I’m in tears Lord. That You would make that sacrifice for me is unbelievable. Thank You for Your continual pursuit of me and of all Your created people. Lord, Your perfect provision of redeemed life coupled with the gift of the Holy Spirit, is the physical representation of Your love.
Let me listen closely to what You are saying and where You are leading. I need help walking with You. Father, I often want to run ahead and pretend I know what I’m doing apart from You. Draw me near to Your precious side, Lord!
