“This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.” John 15:12…….. We need to be careful with people’s hearts. Oh, how very much we can hurt the hearts of others whether on purpose or not on purpose at all. Most of all, we can hurt the heart of the Lord! For when we fall short in…

Hello everyone, ………. Please forgive me for not keeping up with my GOOD NEWS DAILY over the past week or so! I’ve been blessed with an extreme number of ministry opportunities on the streets of New York City, have been deeply immersed in seeking the Lord and doing research on changes to keep up with the growth of publishing and distributing…

Dear friend, ………. When I was growing up, my beloved Mom told me the best way to make a decision is to write out a list of pros and cons. Probably many people would quickly agree. After all, shouldn’t we figure out why we should and shouldn’t do something in order to know how to proceed? There may well be…

THE CURLING IRON LADY………… “But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some for honor and some for dishonor. Therefore if anyone cleanses himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work. Flee also youthful lusts; but pursue righteousness, faith,…

Blessing #83……. “The name of the Lord is a strong tower; The righteous run to it and are safe.” Proverbs 18:3……….. When the Lord told me to go read Proverbs 18, I didn’t know why. I simply obeyed.

“He who follows righteousness and mercy Finds life, righteousness, and honor.” Proverbs 21:21…….. “teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ,” Titus 2:12-13………. Only in New York City would I be walking down…

Dear friend, ……… The Lord’s will and ways don’t always make sense to us, but I’ve long since learned it really doesn’t matter. Whether or not we understand why God commands, calls, desires, and leads us to do what He wants us to do whether in the big picture or simply day by day really isn’t the point. What matters…

THE YOUNG LADY WITH THE BROKEN HEART…….. “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.

Blessing #82 “Now behold, one came and said to Him, “Good Teacher, what good thing shall I do that I may have eternal life?” So He said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good but One, that is, God. But if you want to enter into life, keep the commandments.” He said to Him, “Which…

“I love those who love me, And those who seek me diligently will find me.” Proverbs 8:17……. Sometimes we can find ourselves with people in our lives whose voices concerning the Lord are so loud that it’s hard to hear God Himself speaking to our hearts. It’s not necessarily that they want to talk so much and so strongly to…

The Lord continues to bless me with countless ministry opportunities, and I couldn’t be more excited and thankful – and, yes, a bit tired. Yesterday, the Lord blessed me with something so very beautiful. I stood at a streetlight waiting to cross when I prayed simply, “Lord, please have me to run into so-and-so.” I had recently learned a homeless…

Dear friend, …… It amazes me how desperately I didn’t want to come back to New York City this summer for another season of streets ministry here and how immediately upon arrival I found myself fully surrendered and facing what since my arrival have been countless ministry opportunities. Everything I have needed, the Lord has provided. I have drawn closer…

THE LORD ASKED ME A QUESTION……….. “”But He gives more grace. Therefore He says: “God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.” Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.” James 4:6-8 I had been seeking the Lord about something for several days when…

FULFILLING OUR SERVICE TO JESUS!……… “And Barnabas and Saul returned from Jerusalem when they had fulfilled their ministry, and they also took with them John whose surname was Mark.” Acts 12:25……….. The word “ministry” in this verse according to Strong’s Greek concordance also means “service”, and I believe there is a beautiful lesson in this for all of us. Barnabas and Saul did not…

This morning, I was blessed to talk to a homeless person with extreme challenges with two police officers who know me and my beloved ministry doggies standing there with me. The Lord gave me courage and boldness to talk to the person with policemen right there with us. I had already given the officers Gospel tracts days earlier. This time,…

Dear friend, ………. The Lord has led me to a level of courage and boldness in life and ministry that I didn’t think possible for a woman with a background of brokenness and shyness as great as mine, but to Him I give the glory for He leads me continually into the lives of others with messages both verbally and…

Blessing #79…….. “…Happy are the people whose God is the Lord!” Psalm 144:15……… Oh, what a blessing it is to be happy, isn’t it?

And when we can take vacations to beautiful places several times a…

HOW GOD CHANGED MY PRAYER LIFE……… “Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.” Romans…

Dear friend, …….. A woman in a motorized wheelchair was driving herself down a New York City sidewalk with a huge smile on her face when I felt such a strong conviction from the Lord about my own heart and countenance on a regular basis. When I focus on the Lord and the Bible and my blessings, the biggest one…

Dear friend, When the Lord led me to move forward in my ministry work in a direction I had not expected to go, He reminded me He had already spoken to my heart months earlier. I had heard Him then but managed to convince myself He hadn’t really spoken. So months later, when His Spirit spoke to my heart again,…

THE WEAK PASTOR………. “And lest I should be exalted above measure by the abundance of the revelations, a thorn in the flesh was given to me, a messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I be exalted above measure. Concerning this thing I pleaded with the Lord three times that it might depart from me. And He said to me,…
