Gabby Moms July Review: 2 of the 5 R's

Godly Woman: 5 R's for Godly Womanhood

A bundle of five MP3's and five e-books from Eternal Encouragement


The first R, Refresh is the MOST important, in my opinion.  If we have this one in order, then all of life will fall into place!  

What is this REFRESH you ask?

REFRESH is cultivating your relationship with God.  The sub-title is : A woman who kneels before God can stand before anyone!  Oh, so very true.
Here are some highlights from REFRESH:
  • We are robbing ourselves if we don't sit at the Father's feet
  • God longs for a relationship with His children
  • We can't have a growing relationship if we don't spend time with Him
  • Our success is directly related to the priority we put on our time with God  
  • Does God get your "crumbs" of time?
  • God provided daily manna to the Israelites
  • Jesus is our greatest example

Once again I was not left with a feeling of hopelessness, or with questions of HOW to accomplish an intimate relationship with the Father.  Lorrie lays out a game plan.  A course of action. 

  1. read
  2. study
  3. memorize
  4. meditate
  5. pray
  6. Give God the glory

I can honestly say that there was nothing new to me in this message.  I've been following God for over 30 years now....I have heard it all before.  The problem is not the hearing it is the doing! 
Unfortunately, James 1:22-25 was written just for me:

 But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.  For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was.  But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does. 

I have a hard time with self-discipline and consistency, but I am working at this relationship with the Father.  I KNOW how important it is to have Him guide me.  I KNOW I am blessed when in His will, not my own.  I KNOW that true joy is only found in obedience. I KNOW that I fail, but He is always there ready to lend His hand.  All I have to do is grasp it and never let go.  

Thank you, Lorrie, for the reminder of how important my relationship to my heavenly Father is.  And thank you for reminding me of the steps to keep that relationship strong.  

The second R is Rekindle....yup, this topic is just what you think it is!  :)  I'll be brief and just say that my husband thanks you, Lorrie, for these reminders of how to keep the flame going!

Next month I will tell you about the last 3 R's in this, stay tuned!

  1. Same here, my fellow Gabby Mom.
    Not really new stuff, just the huge push I needed to follow through!!! I needed that!

    Enjoyed your review! :)

  2. Lots of information to digest. Good job condensing it into one post.

  3. @LaurieI know, After listening, I have made my time with the Lord a priority, BUT I still stay in bed to have it as IF I get up, I just don't ever get to it! This is what works for me ;)

  4. @VictoriaAnd yet, so much more could be said....because there is so much more

  5. Ah, self-discipline! I am in the same boat as you, sister! Thanks for your review.
    Jenny, GM

  6. @Jenny
    I'll move over so you can have room to sit in the boat with me :)
    It's a bit crowded here!
