LATEST UPDATE & PRAYER REQUEST………

Dear friend,

I’ve noticed since I went out on the road full-time for Jesus with my special needs streets ministry doggies doing streets ministry and writing and publishing Gospel tracts, devotionals, and books that there has been exceedingly little volunteer help and a bare minimum of financial support.

As extremely hard as this has been, it has forced me into a position of learning at an unimaginably deep level how to trust in and depend on and look to the Lord for everything right down to the physical and mental strength to do the work of what would normally be done by many people.

I am fully devoted to the Lord and my ministry work and will most assuredly press on. Your continued prayers would be so greatly appreciated!

PLEASE ENJOY TODAY’S EDITION OF GOOD NEWS DAILY AND REMEMBER TO SCROLL ALL THE WAY DOWN TO SEE THE FULL ISSUE!

IF YOU NEED HELP BEGINNING OR PRESSING ON IN A FOREVER RELATIONSHIP WITH THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO REACH OUT AT 843-338-2219 OR lara@GoodNews.love

love & blessings,

TODAY’S LITTLE LETTER FROM LARA

Dear friend,

Some people seem to have relatively easy lives. Some seem to have unfathomably hard ones. Others fall somewhere in between. As humans in a world filled with sin, we all have our challenges.

I stumbled upon the verse below early one morning and found such comfort in it. I love the Lord more than anything or anyone in the universe, and I am also madly and passionately in love with His Word.

Look how the psalmist found delight and comfort in scriptures and how he relied on them to get through his affliction.

I hope with all my heart your life is fully devoted to the Lord Jesus Christ and that you take time daily alone with Him and the Bible – finding the love, mercy, grace, strength, wisdom, growth, peace, joy, and comfort that can only be found in the Lord and His Word!

Whether you’re going through a hard time or easy one or somewhere in between, please make the Lord and His Word your highest priority – each and every day and FOREVER!

“Unless Your law had been my delight,
I would then have perished in my affliction.” Psalm 119:92

love & blessings,

lara

TODAY’S DAILY INSPIRATION

“Search me, O God, and know my heart;
Try me, and know my anxieties;
And see if there is any wicked way in me,
And lead me in the way everlasting.” Psalm 139:23-24

A TINY BIG WORD REGARDING SIN!

Sometimes tiny words have really BIG significance. Like in the verses above. Notice the word “in”. Specifically “in me”. The psalmist is crying out to the Lord to tell him if there is any wickedness IN him. Significance? We need to be careful not to assume that sin only manifests in our actions. We can also have sin in our hearts! And we need to turn away from ALL sin.

Examples of sin IN us? Pride, bitterness, envy, worry, vengeance, condemnation, judgment, complaining, self-pity, lust, greed, etc.

Let us bring our whole lives – hearts included – before the Lord regularly and purge from ourselves ANY and ALL sin right down to our very thoughts!

TODAY’S 365 BLESSINGS

BLESSING 191

“Therefore be imitators of God as dear children.” Ephesians 5:1

What an infinitely rich, vibrant, lovely blessing the Lord, Creator of the universe, Lord of Lords, King of Kings, Alpha and Omega, beginning and end (please see the Book of Revelation for these attributes and more), yes, world Savior, healer, redeemer, God of love, hope, comfort, and peace, all powerful, Good Shepherd, Great Shepherd gives Himself to follow and imitate and model ourselves after. And, He teaches us how and enables us by His Spirit through the Word to do so. Blessed be the Lord forever and ever, AMEN!

TODAY’S THE CROSS DEVOTIONAL

COMMUNING WITH GOD!

“Continue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant in it with thanksgiving;” Colossians 4:2

I’m not big on praying other people’s prayers, but it is my hope this prayer I wrote to the Lord will inspire you to pour out your own heart to Him and cry out to Him with your own prayers and to desire and commit and follow through on living utterly for Him!

Today is a new day. A new week. A fresh start. What do YOU want with it, my Lord? You created me. I just read in your Word, “Teach me to do your will.” Today I ask for just that. That you would teach me and help me to do your will so YOU ARE GLORIFIED. Let this day not be about me and what I want. Let it be about you and what you want. Fill me with your Spirit and use me for YOUR GLORY.

I want to bring you joy today, Lord. I want to delight in you just as your Word says. You say you will then bring me the desires of my heart. If I delight in you, Father, then I believe you will place in my heart YOUR DESIRES. I used to live for me, Lord, as you well know. Today I want to live FOR YOU. I want to be closer to you than ever before. This world is so filled with trials. My life is so filled with struggles. But you are greater than it all.

Today, dear Lord, help me to bring honor and pleasure to you. Carry me through the trials of this life and use me through the ups and downs and joys and challenges to help others to find and follow you forevermore. I LOVE YOU, LORD! I am yours! Teach me your ways and use me to bring a smile to your heart. You are my Father, and I want to make you proud to call me daughter. You are my Lord, and I want to be a servant who makes you happy. I love you, precious Jesus! Forever and ever, I love you Lord! AMEN!

TODAY’S SERVING JESUS IN YOUR EVERYDAY LIFE

TOO FAR GONE TO SERVE? No! 

“For you see your calling, brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called. But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty; and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are, that no flesh should glory in His presence.” 1 Cor. 1:26-29

The Lord can use anyone He desires to serve Him, no matter our seeming limitations, and how imperative it is that we don’t give up and choose not to serve Him because we feel it impossible to be of any use to the Lord. We need to remember the glory in our serving Him doesn’t go to us anyway; it goes to Him. So it shouldn’t surprise us when He chooses the least likely people to serve to make it plain and clear He is to be glorified!

I sent a message to a precious husband and wife one day who were going through great medical trials. I hope my words to them might be an encouragement to you or perhaps someone you know!
PLEASE DO NOT GIVE UP! Some of the hardest times in our lives can be opportunities for the greatest growth in our relationship with Christ as well as for incredible service to HIM! Please don’t let the enemy make you think you both are too old or too sick or too far gone or too home bound to be of use to the Lord. You may find if you yield yourselves utterly to Jesus that now is the time you both are of the greatest use to Him ever!!!!
