    "God Has Given You What You Need To Do What He's Asked" With Rachel G. Scott

    "God Has Given You What You Need To Do What He's Asked" With Rachel G. Scott

    How often do we almost take a step of faith ... only to stop short of what we're asked to do because we don't feel equipped?
    We don't feel like we've had enough time to prepare.We don't see how our gifts align with the assignment. Someone else is already doing it.
    In today's episode, author and podcaster Rachel G. Scott shows us how we should respond to God's unique calling for our lives in each season. You'll be challenged to identify why you've delayed your "yes" to God and inspired to seek out how God has already prepared you.

    How can life be so full yet sometimes feel so empty at the same time? It could be we're missing out on where true fullness comes from.

She shares her personal journey of memorizing Scripture and the transformative power it has had in her life and offers practical tips for you to do the same.

    "What if Extraordinary Is Right in Front of You?" With Dr. Naomi Cramer Overton

    "What if Extraordinary Is Right in Front of You?" With Dr. Naomi Cramer Overton

    Does life sometimes feel so  ... ordinary?
    When our to-dos consume us and we find ourselves in a never-ending cycle of cleaning, caring for our people, and probably not taking enough care of ourselves, we wonder, Is there more? We look at women in the Bible like Mary, Ruth and Hagar, and it's easy to see the significance of their lives and feel like we're missing out. But in today's episode, Dr. Naomi Cramer Overton, CEO of Stonecroft Ministries and Managing Editor of the Every Woman's Bible, shares that these women probably felt a lot like we do today: insecure, isolated, doubtful and insignificant. You'll hear practical ways you can be reassured of your purpose by believing what God says and getting plugged in to community. 
    Wherever you are today, live your "ordinary" for the people around you, all for the glory of God.

    "If Obedience Feels Uncomfortable" With Rachael Groll

    "If Obedience Feels Uncomfortable" With Rachael Groll

    It's easy to follow God when it feels good or it's easy for us.
    But what about when it gets harder? When we get nervous or resistant to it? How do we stay faithful in what God has called us to do? On this episode, we are joined by missionary and podcaster Rachael Groll as she walks us through a teaching on the two parts of obedience. You'll have a better understanding of how taking steps of faith works and be able to better discern when it's time to make a move even when it's uncomfortable. We're saving this one to refer back to often. So hit play, and join this conversation.

Love this podcast

I absolutely love proverbs 31 ministries I love the podcast. They make the matter how hard it is to listen to it because I become humbled, but also gracious that they share the wisdom that they have learned in life. I finally had a revelation this morning about the difference between joy and happiness. I would love for y’all to do a podcast on that for everyone. It is taking me forever to figure this out. I never felt joy before I think I finally feel it. make sure it’s to emphasize happiness is something like a text message that someone sent and you bust out laughing early in the morning on the way to work joy is knowing that God has you no matter what life through you. The battles already won because he’s won the war for us. Joy is knowing that Jesus saved us.

Help and time to grow

I love listening to your podcast before I go to bed at night. It is an opportunity to connect with my God, learn from women of faith and be in scripture. I have an illness that doesn’t always allow for me to use my eyes to read the Bible, your podcast gives me sometime to connect and hear from God. Thank you!
