TODAY’S LITTLE LETTER FROM LARA “Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time,” 1 Peter 5:6 Dear friend, One of the most beautiful, wonderful, precious, awesome blessings when it comes to being a follower of the Lord Jesus Christ is something our human flesh and most assuredly this world aren’t prone to think of as a…

TODAY’S LITTLE LETTER FROM LARA Dear friend, Right when I was on the verge of taking a huge step forward in life and ministry at the leading of the Spirit of Christ who lives in and through His followers, I was accosted with a mighty big fiery dart of fear. Okay, that’s not entirely true. Lots of fiery darts. One, then another. Reason after reason…

Monday, June 10, 2019 TODAY’S LITTLE LETTER FROM LARA Dear friend, I’ve been thinking about blessings, how I don’t deserve any because I fall so very far short of God’s glory, and how He blesses me each and every day anyway.We are all sinners bound for hell and the lake of fire in forever torment unless we turn from our sins and believe in Christ…

Saturday, June 8, 2019 TODAY’S LITTLE LETTER FROM LARA Dear friend, I’m a clinger. A clutch-er. A cleave-r. A hold-on-to-it person. A hold-on-to-that-person woman. Or to those-people woman.”You don’t need to understand,” the Spirit of Christ spoke to my heart in the middle of the night. “Go.” Now wait a second, Lord. Go somewhere without understanding? That didn’t make sense? That would not likely be…

TODAY’S LITTLE LETTER FROM LARA Dear friend, Tend to take on loads of responsibilities? Find yourself overloaded and overwhelmed? Afraid to let something go? Worried how others will respond when you say no? Feel like you’re the only one who can handle whatever you sense maybe you should let go?First, SEEK THE LORD.

Monday, June 3, 2019 TODAY’S LITTLE LETTER FROM LARA Dear friend, A dear friend when we pray together sometimes thanks the Lord for His mercy which is new every day. Have you ever considered this? That His mercy goes on forever?I don’t know about you, but I need mercy every breath I take. I fall so very far short of the glory of God, and…

LATEST MINISTRY UPDATE & PRAYER REQUEST Oh, how I would love more than you can perhaps possibly imagine to get back to my almost daily writing and publishing of GOOD NEWS DAILY. But how can I possibly keep up with everything the Lord has so lovingly, graciously, and mercifully placed in my heart and hands especially these days? I am still in a hotel in New…

Wednesday, May 29, 2019 TODAY’S LITTLE LETTER FROM LARA Dear friend, When the devil tries to destroy the lives of people who follow the Lord Jesus Christ, who truly have turned over their lives to Christ, who live to love and worship and serve Him now and forever, the devil doesn’t just try to destroy our lives so we can’t enjoy our time on this earth.…

Tuesday, May 28, 2019 TODAY’S LITTLE LETTER FROM LARA Dear friend, If you think I spend hours and hours praying each and every time I write another GOOD NEWS DAILY, outlining what I will write, coming up with a theme and agenda, devising a plan, debating which direction to go, and what to forego, think again. I spend time with the Lord day and night,…

TODAY’S LITTLE LETTER FROM LARA Dear friend, “I think it’s a fabulous idea, Father,” I told the Lord. I had been daydreaming about a “fabulous” idea a loved one had planted in my mind which in all honesty seemed a lot easier and more comfortable than the Lord’s plan for me. His will seemed challenging to say the least. So why not tell the Lord…

TODAY’S LITTLE LETTER FROM LARA Dear friend, One powerful thing among countless others that God makes clear in the Old Testament of the Bible is that every battle that ended up in victory was won as a result of following GOD’S INSTRUCTIONS FOR THAT BATTLE. If you study the battles of the Bible, you will find that God gave DIFFERENT INSTRUCTIONS for DIFFERENT BATTLES. His…

Dear friend, My pastor long ago who tragically went to be with the Lord far sooner than any of the countless people who loved him expected emphatically told me when God called me into ministry that I needed to go through a season of preparation first. I went against his wise counsel and made a mess of my early years in ministry. My biggest mistake?…

TODAY’S LITTLE LETTER FROM LARA Dear friend, When someone shared with me recently she could relate to my recent challenges coupled with some depression which has not been the norm for me in quite a long time, I responded based on a beautiful opportunity I had. See, she doesn’t believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. So there was a major difference in the battles we…

TODAY’S LITTLE LETTER FROM LARA Dear friend, “I will love You, O Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; My God, my strength, in whom I will trust; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised; So shall I be saved from my enemies.” Psalm 18:1-3 I wish I could tell you otherwise, but…

TODAY’S LITTLE LETTER FROM LARA Dear friend, Yesterday the Lord sent me back into New York City for a few hours – my 2nd trip back since doing 6 months of streets ministry there last year. My flesh felt pretty much in shock at being back in such a wild, expensive, challenging, noisy, smelly, crazy place in so many ways. But all it took was…

Wednesday, May 15, 2019 TODAY’S LITTLE LETTER FROM LARA Dear friend, Just when I had convinced myself there couldn’t possibly be anything positive about the trial I’m going through, and the battle in which I’m entrenched, the Lord showed me He is growing me and bringing correction in the midst of it – and sent me a woman in need whereby He is reminding me…

Tuesday, May 14, 2019 TODAY’S LITTLE LETTER FROM LARA Dear friend, Today I was blessed despite the fiery spiritual battle in which I’ve been entrenched recently to be able to board a bus and head into New York City from my current location in New Jersey to “spy out the land”. In the Old Testament, people were sent to “spy out the land” to see…

Unconditional Relationship  “Now in the morning, having risen a long while before daylight, He went out and departed to a solitary place; and there He prayed.” Mark 1:35 One of the greatest blessings I’ve discovered over the years when it comes to my relationship with the Lord is the concept of unconditional relationship. What do I mean? How so? At times I feel especially close…

The Sun Will Shine Again  “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”” John 16:33 “The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it, for the glory of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light.” Rev. 21:23 “There…

Dear friend, When the spiritual battle Christ’s followers face is at its most fiery, which it has been for me over the past week since the Lord led me from three weeks of ministry and preparation in the Appalachian region of West Virginia to New Jersey just outside New York City where He is leading me back for more ministry work there, sometimes we find…

Dear friend, I couldn’t be more thankful that the Lord carries me through each and every day. Everyone has a story, and mine compared to so many other people’s stories has been nothing in the way of challenges. But the reality is, many would say my personal story has been enormously challenging – for decades, in fact. And indeed, if the truth be known, for…

“Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith; that I may know…

Dear friend, By God’s grace alone, I spent about 11 hours in the car driving through the mountains and then pretty heavy truck and city traffic journeying from my three weeks of ministry work in the Appalachian region of West Virginia to New Jersey just outside of New York City. The Lord has sent me here to do some ministry work in New Jersey while…

Saturday, May 4, 2019 TODAY’S LITTLE LETTER FROM LARA Dear friend, When I left New York City last year after doing streets ministry there for 6 months, I was 100% certain I would never see New York City again. It had been an extremely hard, extremely expensive, and extremely uncomfortable 6 months of ministry work, and I was totally convinced when the Lord led me…

I have been on the road for Jesus for 2 years now with what are now 5 special needs dogs doing streets ministry and writing and publishing Gospel tracts, devotionals, and books as the Lord  Jesus…

TODAY’S LITTLE LETTER FROM LARA Dear friend, In my experience, one of Satan’s greatest tactics is to get Christ’s followers so discouraged and down and depressed that we want to run and hide under the covers of our beds and distance ourselves from God as we become convinced we’re too far gone, too messed up, too broken, too hurting, too hopeless, too whatever, to…

Wednesday, May 1, 2019 TODAY’S LITTLE LETTER FROM LARA Dear friend, It’s one thing to watch the television news or to read the daily newspaper and to see the state of our world today and all the brokenness and endless hurt, hopelessness, tragedies, evil, suffering, etc. It’s another thing to be out on the streets of America where the Lord has called me and to…

Recently I’ve been considering the price I’m paying for giving up a typical American lifestyle to be on the road for Jesus full-time with my beloved special needs doggies doing streets ministry and writing and publishing Gospel tracts, devotionals, and books. I’m living a life I never fathomed living. Never dreamed of living. Never would have chosen. It’s beautiful. It’s amazing. It’s rich. It’s vibrant.…

The Key to Intimacy with Christ…………. “From that time Jesus began to preach and to say, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”” Mt. 4:17 The key to an intimate relationship between two humans is love, isn’t it? There are other ingredients, of course, but love is fundamental. Love is fundamental to intimacy with the Lord, too, but there is a key without…

Blessing #35…………. “And I have declared to them Your name, and will declare it, that the love with which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them.”” John 17:26 Can you fathom the love God almighty has for His Son the Lord Jesus Christ is the very same love we who believe in Jesus Christ as Lord have inside of us? And…

Your Life from a Different View…………. One day a sister in Christ thanked me for helping her to see her life from a different perspective. It had not been my intention. I had simply thanked her for her generosity and made reference in my correspondence to how blessed she was that God had given her something in particular in her life. Apparently she had needed…

Dear friend, It’s a new day! Sometimes when I’m in a season of struggle, of challenge, of some sort of difficulty, I wake up in the morning without my usual excitement at the prospect of a new day. Without a thankful heart. Without realizing how blessed I am to have a forever relationship with God through the Lord Jesus Christ, to have the Spirit of…

TODAY’S THE CROSS DEVOTIONAL Feeling Angry at God? ” “Be angry, and do not sin”: do not let the sun go down on your wrath, nor give place to the devil.” Ephesians 4:26-27 We never have any right to be angry with God, do we? After all, He is God. But the reality is sometimes we find ourselves angry at Him. Sometimes even extraordinarily so.…

Up and Down the Mountains…………….”I will lift up my eyes to the hills— From whence comes my help? My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth.” Psalm 121:1-2………….. Honestly, I was HORRIFIED to discover the massive mountains (massive in my estimate anyway) I had to drive HOURS through to get to my next destination on the road for Jesus. I have a…

Dear friend, In the past few days, it’s been hard to imagine I could ever write again. So much change, so much challenge, such uncomfortable circumstances. But the Lord is faithful to enable us to do what He desires us to do. And I am learning day by day that when I feel like I can’t do something, it’s the perfect opportunity to witness myself…
