GOOD NEWS DAILY

I’m walking through some tough stuff right now, and I decided to handle things totally differently than I might have oh so recently. I am praising God right in the midst of it – out loud, in words, in song, in tongues. And guess who ain’t so happy right now. Satan hates praise, and he hates worship. After all, praising…

Enter into my mind tonight. It’s not always a pretty place to be. I have a bad habit of listening to the devil – and not talking back. Just what the devil ordered. He would love nothing more than to fire fiery darts at me while I yuck them up and ruminate on them just long enough to sink into…

“You know,” I told a dear friend yesterday by phone. “Walk by Faith Ministry has been under incredible attack from the enemy ever since I moved to South Carolina – over a year. If you look at the circumstances, I should throw in the towel and quit.” I began to share some of the ministry’s statistics for the past year,…

My mom asked me the other day what I want for my 44th Birthday on October 16. Some things never change. I may be turning a BIG 44, but the gifts still keep coming. This year, I have a very special wish. I would be blessed, and honored, and privileged, and grateful, if people would consider giving a donation to…

Do you remember when you learned to ride a bicycle? Maybe your father walked by your side holding one end of a stick while you clenched on – ecstatic and petrified all at once – as you learned to ride. Or maybe you relied on training wheels, providing the balance you needed as you learned to do something a small…

An English friend years ago commented to me, “You Americans miss so much. You’re never looking up.” He then spoke of the amazing artwork in other countries that necessitated people looking up, not down. Though he was not speaking of God, he might as well have been. He also might as well have been talking about me. Back then, I…

When you fall on your face, make sure you land in the right place. I have fallen on my face only to land in the dirt, alone, tired, scared, beaten down, downtrodden, broken and battered by life. I have also fallen on my face and landed on holy ground. In the Bible, numerous references are made to people falling forward…

Yesterday I kept my medicine cabinet closed. Today I do not just plan to open it. I plan to use the medicines inside and to apply them as they are prescribed. The funny thing is that I don’t have a medicine cabinet in my bathroom. Nor do I take medicine – not even aspirin. But I have a Bible full…

Praise the Lord! Joshua (pictured in front) wore his collar for about 6 or 7 weeks following major surgery to remove a massive tumor. He was rescued from euthanization at a SC shelter, flown by private plane to Hilton Head, SC, and had surgery shortly thereafter courtesy of an anonymous family that donated his operation. Though he has other tumors,…

Not too many months ago, I wrote a piece about celebrating Thanksgiving in an unusual month of the year. After all, we Americans are prone to remember Thanksgiving when the holiday comes around – and not always in other months of the year. Not too long after I wrote the piece, I resumed waiting for Thanksgiving for thanksgiving – albeit…

I can respond to impossible situations in two ways. I can look to the situation, see its impossibility, and wallow and sink in fear and unbelief. Or, I can look at the Lord and believe He can do something about the impossible situation. The devil wants me to focus on the situation and place my faith in its impossibility. In…

The Lord’s admonition to me was clear as a sunny day. “Let go of what you’re holding onto,” He said as I wrote what I heard from Him during my time of seeking His direction. I contemplated what I might be holding onto, and I asked Him in our time together. Was I holding onto a loved one? Fear? Pain?…
