GOOD NEWS DAILY

A friend called me to check in on me. She knew I had been going through a hard time and wanted to see how I was and to update me a bit on her own life. She loves the Lord with all her heart, loves to talk with me about the Lord and the Bible, and she prays to no…

Please read Psalms 46 just below and open your heart to the message the Lord so lovingly, tenderly, graciously, kindly, comfortingly, preciously, and generously gave me to share with you. I am excited over how I believe the Lord will encourage you with this message! “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not…

“Forgive me for not being thankful,” I prayed. “Forgive me for not being content.” I had tears in my eyes as I prayed in repentance. The Lord blessed me with His provision and protection for a season of my life, but I had gone from being thankful to feeling restless, discontent, and unthankful. I wanted to move on. I wanted…

After taking a walk with the Lord after which I felt a bit down and disappointed because my time with Him hadn’t measured up to what I had hoped for coupled with my recent sadness over a super big loss, I told Him this: “…you are so faithful and I want to be thankful all the time. Even when I’m…

“You’re so sad missing what you want that you’re missing what you have,” the Lord spoke to my heart. I won’t go into the details. That’s not the point. This is. The Lord was right. He always is. And I believe what He told me is true for many of us. Sometimes we’re so focused on what we want or…

One day I realized I had been losing my thanksgiving. I wasn’t purposely doing it. I wasn’t even conscious of it. Until the Lord used one of His children who shared with me about her own thankfulness to the Lord to help me see I had been letting my thanksgiving slip away. For several days or so, I had been…

A long-time sister in the Lord early one morning lovingly listened to me pour out my heart about some challenges I faced. I told her up front I felt raw and fragile and feared being judged by anyone. She did something so beautiful, tender, and kind. She listened, she loved, she said, “Oh, Lara” with such deep heartfelt compassion, she…

I pray all the time, yet I know it’s not enough to pray as in a healthy relationship listening not just talking is so vitally important. Most especially when it comes to the Lord. We can and should pray, pray, pray. But we must, absolutely must, listen to the Lord both in His Word which is the number one way…

Sometimes when we go through hard stuff, we want to wrap a big thick comforter around ourselves and burrow down under it so nobody can see us. We want to hide our hurting hearts, our troubles and struggles, our worries and sorrows, our anger and bitterness, our wide array of emotions. We want to bury our broken hearts and broken…

Control has a bad reputation, doesn’t it? Perhaps you’ve heard people say things like, “That person needs to stop being so controlling.” “He destroyed his relationship with her because he was too controlling.” “I have a problem with being controlling.” There is most assuredly a negative form of control that is sin against God because our flesh tries to exert…

I was walking down the beach one day with paralyzed ministry dog Miss Mercy in her wheelchair feeling terribly sad regarding several things when it dawned on me not for the first time in recent days that I felt I couldn’t “look upward” where the Lord God almighty sits in heaven. The Lord had revealed to me a day or…

When Jesus showed a man through the well-known so-called Good Samaritan story that loving our neighbors is about showing love, mercy, compassion, care, sacrifice, generosity, and kindness to others, and that loving the Lord and loving our neighbors are fundamental to having everlasting life with the Lord, He spoke three vitally important words that can be easily missed as I…

When the Lord sent the apostle Peter to talk to Cornelius and his relatives and close friends about the Lord so they would receive the promise of everlasting life with the Lord, Cornelius responded to the arrival of Peter with words that bear a powerful message for all of us. “Immediately therefore I [Cornelius] sent to thee [Peter]; and thou…

Someone who doesn’t believe in the Lord Jesus Christ emphatically told me one day, “I am number one!” She was declaring to me why she believed she needed to act a certain way and not take into consideration some other people. I knew not to argue because she had already staunchly pronounced in other conversations that she would never place…

Now this verse just below may look like nothing more than a description of the apostle Peter beginning to preach, and you may be led when you read it in the Bible to do nothing more than keep reading on. But please don’t miss what I missed for years reading it. “Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a…
