Tuesday, May 21, 2019 TODAY’S LITTLE LETTER FROM LARA Dear friend, Seems I keeping crossing paths with people recently – myself included! – who are desperately waiting for the Lord to set them free from their…

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…

Dear friend, If you’re having trouble keeping up with all the news and change and challenge and victories and growth in this ministry, rest assured I am as well…! 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…

Trying to catch up with everything as I’m in major transition with my locations on the road for Jesus with my beloved special needs doggies.

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…

“Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God!” 1 John 3:1 Long ago I thought of killing myself by stepping in front of a New York City bus because I was so distraught and broken after seeing a man I had become involved with and purportedly fallen in love with walk down the street with his wife.…

Sexual Assault Survivor & My Paralyzed Dog……. “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. For as the sufferings of Christ abound…

Dear friend, Please don’t quit. I’m not just asking you. I’m begging you. If the Lord has called you to something, or to someone, and you’re clear about that, and you’ve checked to make sure it’s biblical, this calling, as the Lord only and always speaks in line with the Bible, then please hear me when I say this. Please don’t quit. No matter how…

SLEEPING WITH THE LIGHT ON……….. “Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”” John 8:12……….. I have tears in my eyes as I write this. I am going to be totally transparent with you. I am going to tell you something I prefer to…

Blessing #31………. “All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out.” John 6:37 We are all sinners in need of Jesus for He is the only one who can save us for eternity. For He died for us and was raised from the dead to atone for our sins and…

When NOT to Act…. “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind.” James 1:5-6 Being on the road for Jesus full-time…

Some relatively new friends of mine who are going through multiple trials all at once contacted me from the homeless shelter where they recently moved to give me an update on how things stand. My heart hurts for all they are going through, but at the same time my heart rejoices. For they are strong believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, their faith is in…

The Greatest Sorrow of All… “Now a certain ruler asked Him, saying, “Good Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” So Jesus said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good but One, that is, God. You know the commandments: ‘Do not commit adultery,’ ‘Do not murder,’ ‘Do not steal,’ ‘Do not bear false witness,’‘Honor your father and your…
