“I sent my son your devos,” she said.
Her son was running. Addicted. Far from the faith of his youth. She didn’t condemn. She simply sent Proverbs 31 Ministries Encouragement for Today devos from time to time, with an “I love you.”
They were devotionals for women, yes, but they were about Jesus and the power to reach you, and that was enough for her.
She prayed they were enough for her son.
She had no idea if he read them or not, but one night he called. ”Mom, I’m tired of running.”
It had been several months and her son was doing well. He had checked into rehab, and more importantly, He had run into the arms of a loving Heavenly Father.
He told her that he had read the devos.
Every single one of them.
One day a devotional struck home and he longed for the life he once had. That was the night he called her.
“My son is okay today because of what you ladies do,” she said. “Your ministry’s devo saved my child.”
This is only one of many stories that I hear as I travel.
One woman left the sex industry after reading a devotional. Another mended her relationship with her mother after years of not speaking. Many women say that God speaks right into their daily lives, just at the time they need it most, through the devos.
I LOVE hearing stories of how the Encouragement for Today devos reach women (and sons and daughters and neighbors and friends) across the world!
I feel privileged to be one of the The Proverbs 31 Ministries team praying over and writing these devos. It not only takes a team of us to write them, but it also takes funds to reach nearly a million women in countries across the world five days a week.
Today I’m doing something I don’t normally do.
But I’m so excited to be able to do it. I’m asking if you’ll consider donating to this beautiful 401 nonprofit ministry. Our devos are only a small part of what we do. Radio. Online Bible studies. Conferences. Training. Prayer.
The heart behind this nonprofit ministry, with women who work as a team hours and hours each week, is to give selflessly, to serve.
Your donation helps us reach further.
Not just 700,000 women with a devo, but 24,000 with an online Bible study. Hundreds of thousands through radio.
Your gift makes a difference. No matter how large or small a donation might be, every penny goes into reaching women across the world.
