Life can be so challenging sometimes — we each understand this all too well. It’s not only the big things that seem out of our control, but it's also the little things we face each day. We forget our keys. A friend cancels on us. Our bank card gets declined. We wake up anxious. Negative thoughts fill our mind. It doesn’t take much to leave us feeling hopeless, confused, exhausted or stressed. We wonder what God has to say about what we’re experiencing, but sometimes just getting through the next few hours is hard enough. That’s why Proverbs 31 Ministries created The Encouragement For Today Podcast — to help you start your day with a biblical perspective you can carry with you, no matter what lies ahead.
“The Courage To Proceed” by Tracie Braylock
In today’s episode, you’ll hear a devotion written by Tracie Braylock based on Joshua 1:9, which says, “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go” (ESV).
“The Blessings Found in the Fire” by Lysa TerKeurst
In today’s episode, you’ll hear a devotion written by Lysa TerKeurst based on Malachi 3:3, which says, “He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver, and he will purify the sons of Levi and refine them like gold and silver, and they will bring offerings in righteousness to the LORD” (ESV).

Friends, we understand all too well that life can be so hard sometimes. It doesn’t take much to leave us feeling hopeless, confused and exhausted.
We wonder what God has to say about what we’re going through, but sometimes just getting through the day is hard enough.
Such a BLESSING for a busy Mom!
What a joy to get truth that helps you keep life in perspective by pointing you to God’s word! So encouraging to hear real life stories that can share struggles and feelings we’ve all had at some point. So relatable for anyone, in any stage of life. Thanks for putting this resource together, it will be used by many!
I’m so grateful this podcast is available. I often listened to the devotions a couple of years ago when they were included with the daily encouragement emails. So happy to have the opportunity to listen again. What a blessing! At the kitchen table, in my car, or on a walk, you definitely are meeting us right where we are.

I love that now I can listen to EFT devotions on on the go! While I’m in line picking up kids or traveling from on errand to another, I can get encouragement anytime! 🤍
