Do you believe in miracles? Miss Miracle, a senior, disabled, emaciated, flea-infested, missing-patches-of-hair, eight pound dog with Lyme disease, a big tumor on her neck, an ear problem, an eye problem, toe nails curling all the way back around to her feet, possible severe joint disease or an injury or birth defect that crippled her front legs causing an erratic, hobbling, difficult, walk, and severe anemia, has received the biggest miracle of her life. She is now officially the newest – and totally unexpected – addition to Walk by Faith Ministry.
I believe in miracles. God saved my life through faith in Jesus Christ, and has transformed this once broken, hopeless, useless, worthless, abandoned, neglected, rejected, abused, addicted, despairing, depressed, traumatized, and so much more woman (yes, ME!) into a saved, delivered, and set free vessel for His use to share the Gospel while ministering the Lord’s love to a world in need. Yes, I am a miracle by God’s grace alone. And now I am blessed, humbled, and privileged to witness God use me to share the love of Christ with a world in dire need of His love and mercy.

Given how sold out I am to love and serve the Lord with all my heart, my plate is constantly full beyond measure with opportunities to serve. When a woman I knew as a little girl with whom I had not talked in over 30 years contacted me about a tiny disabled, severely neglected dog hours away from me in dire need, I looked with my human eyes and thought, “No way.” It was simply too much for me to take on a single additional responsibility.
But when I sought the Lord in prayer, He told me not to look with my eyes. He told me to look with my heart – yet another reminder that a life dedicated to Jesus Christ is about living by faith in God rather than according to my human flesh. When I ultimately said “YES” to helping this little dog, I knew I would ONLY be able to do this in the Lord’s strength and with His provision – and for HIS glory! I knew that it would be literally impossible to take on this little dog by myself. But impossible things with humans are possible with God, according to the Bible.

With all glory to God, and thanks to numerous people He sent along to help with this special little dog, Miss Miracle began her new life on Sunday with myself, Walk by Faith Ministry, and her 18 precious, mostly special needs and senior doggies. Her new family includes 3 paralyzed, 1 two-footed, one 3-legged, one missing toes, one blind, two more with age-related walking issues, and more – including a head-over-heels-in-love-with-Jesus-Christ Miss Mommie!

Miss Miracle was rescued by a beautiful woman of God hours away from me, received phenomenal care at a very special veterinary clinic in Northern VA, was prayed over and transported by car to the airport by another precious woman of God, flew with an incredibly giving private pilot to North Carolina, spent the night with the pilot and his loving wife who go to exceeding lengths to rescue and fly dogs to safety on a regular basis, flew on her second plane journey the following day, and landed in my heart, ministry, and life all in a matter of a week. How is that for a miracle?

Some people have a hard time watching Miss Miracle walk, but I do not. I have long since learned in my journey with the Lord about learning to walk by faith. I know all about stumbling, hobbling, falling, tripping, getting back up again, and learning to keep my eyes on the prize – the Lord. And with all the very special dogs in my care, many of whom walk in their own unique ways (wheelchairs, dragging, hoisting their bodies up into the air, walking without eyes to see, etc.), I can only say that Miss Miracle is the perfect fit.

At a time in my life when I could easily wind down on my responsibilities and take an endlessly long vacation from almost constant opportunities to serve, I am clearly not. Though I certainly take my naps, sit in the sun for rest, and read a book at night to unwind in small ways, I have far too much on my plate to do much more slowing down than that. I may have my work cut out for me, but I know full and well that my labor is not in vain. Everything I do, as best I am able, is for the glory of the Lord that His love and mercy might pour through me to a world that so desperately needs it.

I would be grateful for your prayers – for myself, the ministry, Miss Miracle, the other dogs, and the people with whom I constantly come in contact to whom I have the privilege of ministering.

A very special THANK YOU to all the incredibly special people that the Lord sent to help Miss Miracle. Though I wanted to mention all of you in this little story, the Lord put it on my heart to leave the names out. Please know that you are LOVED and APPRECIATED beyond measure! Thank you for your humble hearts, and may God get every ounce of glory for this beautiful MIRACLE.
