Do you ever find it hard to let God work on your behalf? Are you tempted to trust in your own strength rather than let God work things out for you?

Why is it so enticing to choose lesser things over lasting things? Do you ever pick up your phone or watch a mindless show without thinking anything of it, but end up wondering where the day went when you lay down at night? Sometimes even the things that are entertaining and good can leave us feeling empty, lesser and lacking. So, how do we set healthy boundaries and train our minds to choose what's best over what seems right in the moment?

It's easy to look back and think of all the things you'd do differently in your teenage years, isn't it? Maybe there are some small things you'd change ... you wouldn't have worn so much makeup or pushed yourself to do better in math. Or perhaps the people you thought were your best friends led you to make decisions that now you'd do much differently.

Today is a very special day on The Proverbs 31 Ministries Podcast because ... (drum roll please) we're celebrating our first birthday!

With every episode, we reached hearts and homes around the globe (literally!) with biblical truth for any girl in any season. We're so thankful for the way the Lord has used this podcast above and beyond what we could have imagined!

Do you ever find yourself fighting the temptation to focus on what you don't have instead of what you've already been given? When we are actively pursuing God's calling on our lives, I think we've all been tempted to focus on what someone else has or is experiencing, and feel disqualified because of what we lack. It's so easy to think, I'm not as talented, bold, smart or outgoing as she is. I can't write, speak or lead. I don't know how to do _______. I just can't.

It seems like every opportunity that comes our way is often followed by opposition. So ... how do you really know if it's God who is really telling you to keep pursuing that opportunity when you face a giant roadblock? What do you do when you've lost all confidence to do what you think He's called you to do?

Pause for a moment and think about your relationships ... your spouse, children, friends, co-workers, neighbors. You can probably name some highs and lows of each relationship because, well, humans are human. And humans mess up!

"Why should I fast?" ... is a real question that often goes unanswered. You might hear your pastor, ministry leader or friend talk about fasting and wonder what the purpose of depriving yourself of something really is. After all, why fast when you could simply pray, right?

Social media and television make it incredibly easy to compare our behind-the-scenes to someone else's highlight reel... especially in our marriages. We turn on the TV, and then we're turned off because it seems everyone else has a happier, more exciting and more romantic marriage than we do.

Do you ever wonder if all the things you do for your children is even making an impact? If the wisdom we try to impart actually sticks or if we're really cut out for this "mothering" job after all? Proverbs 22:6 says, "Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it." As parents, this Scripture sounds promising, but being in the "thick of it" is tough!

If you were to walk through your home and make a stack of all the "advice" books you own, there's a good chance that stack would be pretty tall! There is a book available for every subject you could ever need: time management, pregnancy, parenting, relationships, dieting, exercising, overcoming anxiety... the list goes on! But where do you find real wisdom for living?

How do we embrace what seems so glaringly imperfect in the process of becoming more like Jesus? In Lysa TerKeurst's new book, It's Not Supposed to Be This Way, she says "Anytime we feel not good enough we deny the powerful truth that we are a glorious work of God in progress."

When things don't go the way we want and life doesn't turn out the way we thought it should, it's easy to wonder why. In Mark 14, Jesus prays "Yet not what I will, but what you will." Those words read well, but they're hard to live out.

The hymn, "It Is Well With My Soul" was first published almost 150 years ago. Those words are often sung in church or hung on the walls in our homes ... but if we were really honest with ourselves, could we say they're absolutely true?

Have you ever set out to do something you knew you were supposed to do, only to find it wasn't as easy as you thought it would be? Perhaps you think you're not good enough, or that there's no room for you because there's someone else already doing what you feel led to do.

If you were to have a conversation with a friend right now, would you be able to say that everything in your life has turned out the way you expected it would? Probably not. Life happens, and even though your expectations might have been realistic, your reality lends you to wonder...

Have you ever sat down and opened your Bible, only to find you don't really know where to start? Perhaps you read a chapter and then just move on, not knowing what would come next in actually studying the passage? Or, maybe there are passages in the Bible that are confusing, so you just keep go back to the same familiar ones?

When you look for examples of worship in the Bible, you'll find everything from songs sung in corporate worship to deep prayers uttered in the midst of hard circumstances. Today, most of us relate worship to attending church and singing songs together. But what if worship is something we can do every day in the seemingly insignificant moments of life?

Have you had a recent disagreement in a relationship, which you can't quite find the cause of? It might be because of your expectations! One of the quickest ways to frustrate and fracture a relationship is to try and hold someone accountable for expectations that are either unrealistic or uncommunicated.

When you see the word "ministry," it's easy to think about people or organizations making big moves for God - feeding hungry children, rescuing those in slavery or speaking in front of thousands of people. But what's so easy to overlook are life's greatest ministry opportunities packaged in everyday moments.

What kind of woman is God calling you to be today? A woman everyone likes, or a woman who is obedient no matter the cost, and humble no matter what others may think?

Have you ever been so tangled up in making things perfect that you just want to give up? Maybe you think to yourself, It's not going to turn out right, so I'd rather not waste my time on it, or Someone else already does it better than I'll ever be able do it.

In Philippians 4:6, Paul writes, "Do not be anxious about anything..." But in today's world, it's hard to hold true to that promise in God's Word. We see violence, sickness, betrayal and evil in the world ... every day, multiple times a day. So how can we "not be anxious about anything"?
