What is a 5:16 gal?

A 5:16 gal is a gal who has decided that she wants to redeem the time with her savior. She is choosing to rise early, before the day takes her away, to sit at the feet of Jesus.

What is the 5:16 club?

The idea for the 5:16 club originated here: http://girltalk.blogs.com/girltalk/2006/01/the_500_club.html, and began as the 5 am club. While the ultimate goal is to rise early, circumstances don't always allow (pregnancy, new baby, illness, etc.). The real purpose of this club is to encourage and journey with one another as we seek to spend time with the Lord every day - whatever time of the day you are able.

Why 5:16?

Ephesians 5:16 says, "making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil." The literal meaning is "redeem the time." We are seeking to redeem the time and make the most of every opportunity to seek the Lord with all our hearts. Why? Because the days are evil. We must prepare for battle each and every day - sometimes just to get through the day!

I was thinking what a failure I am and then I read this post and realized that I'm not the only one who has a new baby. I have found that if I read while nursing, I will remember more often and the girls get to hear the Word too!

DO NOT FEEL BAD!!!  I think that Satan uses our weaknesses to discourage us and make us think we are failures!  I don't care if you get up at 10am - spend time with Jesus then...or 10pm for that matter.  Remember, the real purpose for this club is to ENCOURAGE one another to redeem the time with our God - whatever time that may be during your day.  Yes, rising early helps prepare for the battles of the day, but feeling like a failure and giving up is losing the battle all-together.

Don't give up friend!  I'm a nursing mamma too!  Smiley
