  1. Thanks (in)courage!
    I signed up. In the daily grind of life, I can use reassurance that, through Christ working in me, I have what it takes to not only survive but to be more than a conqueror!
    Thanks & Blessings,
    Bev xx

  2. Thank you for these devotionals in advance, every morning I try to read the one from (in)courage, the topics are always timely and bring me thoughtful peace.

  3. I am a widow and the Lord has made it possible for me to sell my home in NM and move close to my family in Texas. While I know that this is what I need to do I need courage to face the challenges of this move. I am leaving a wonderful church family and I am seeking to not only survive but thrive in my new home. I am looking forward to the opportunities to have more quality time with my family and I want the Lord to use me to strengthen our faith and our family love.

    • Jan, thank you for sharing this. Praying now that God infuses you with courage to trust His good plans for your future and listen closely to His voice. May His presence comfort you when it’s hard. xx

  4. In Courage,

    There are so many courageous women in Bible. Ruth lost her husband, yet left family & homeland to cling to Naomi who had lost two sons & husband. She ventured to a new land. God provided for her courageous faith. Mary, a young girl betrothed, gets a message about becoming pregnant. She accepts the huge responsibility without thinking about consequences. Esther, an orphan raised by her uncle, gets taken into king’s harem. Because of her quiet beauty & courage she becomes queen. Eventually she saves her nation. Those acts of bravery took courage-especially in the days & times they lived. I find it hard to put myself in line with these women. I took a leap of faith & went on a missions trip to a local state prison. At the end of weekend we all got to go inside the prison to the great room. There we had a closing ceremony. It took courage to face those men (prisoners). God was with us all the time & He will continue to be with all us women of courage!

    Blessings 🙂

  5. Such a perfect gift! I wrote a 31 day devotional on Brave Faith but what I know is that courage is ongoing, hard, and possible because of God who loves us through our challenges.

  6. I needed this today. I am going through a storm from all sides right now and I greatly appreciate the free devotions. I wish I could buy your as I know it would be amazing. I have bought several of the Encourage Women’s Bible to give to family/friends as gifts and they have just loved them. God is good every day even through the storms that come are way. This too shall pass.

  7. You guys are so kind. More kind. If I was beside you I give you all a big hug. I live so far away. My thanks all I can do is pray for the wonderful work you guys do. My God really bless it. 10 fold over. As I know it has helped me in so so so many ways grow closer to God. Thank you all again. I just love you all so much in Christ. The reading really bless me.
