GOOD NEWS DAILY

Just when I feel I am finally making some headway with the book I am writing, I have a sneaking suspicion I may need to start all over. In fact, I am not quite sure I am supposed to be writing this book at all. Furthermore, if I am meant to be writing it, I may need to begin from the beginning. Or, I may…

Yesterday, as the Lord showed me the people and things He had wanted me to let go, He threw me a curve ball. “Stop holding onto me,” He told me. How crazy was that? He has told me to stop clinging to certain people and things, and that I need to cleave to Him. So how could He possibly in the same breath tell me…

I just got back from a wonderful new haircut, and I cannot help but be reminded how often we neglect to fully understand the principle of sowing. Sure, we know that we reap when we sow, right? But why do we automatically assume the best way to sow is financially? I do not have a budget to get my hair cut regularly, but I have…

I will never forget the summer my parents lent me their ocean front condominum for several months so that in the words of my father, “we will see this summer if you have the discipline to be a writer.” I will never remember that summer because of all the writing I did, because what stands out above all else is that I sacrificed my writing…

When life gets too serious, the Lord has a way of sending me a few good laughs. St. Francis, our new special needs senior, was neutered a few days ago and is now the proud wearer of what I call an ice cream cone collar. No big deal, right? It is when this deaf sweetheart who stumbles and sometimes falls goes gallivanting off until he…

“O sing unto the LORD a new song; for he hath done marvelous things: his right hand, and his holy arm, hath gotten him the victory.” Psalm 98:1 KJVAmid a night of so much tossing and turning I am surprised I was not seasick, I managed to sleep just long enough last evening for the Lord to put a new song in my heart with…

When God told me He wanted me to sacrifice my husband and marriage, I held onto a seed of hope that God would return to me my sacrifice just as He gave Abraham back the sacrifice of his son Isaac. But yesterday as the man I married piled into his pickup, drove himself to the country county courthouse, and stood before a judge to divorce…

When God takes you to a new level, or a new land, get ready. Fasten your seatbelt, say your prayers, and make absolutely certain you are studying and applying His Word. Why? More than likely, you will not know your way around when you get there. Imagine your first trip into a foreign country where absolutely everything is unfamiliar, new, different, and, yes, foreign. I…

Donations are now being collected at Walk by Faith Ministry for the medical care of St. Francis (formerly Marcos). Please read his full story and updates on our website! Thank you in advance for your contributions for this very special, special needs senior!Please visit Walk by Faith Ministry at https://www.walkbyfaithministry.com.

“St. Francis needs a miracle,” I told a little girl whom I babysat earlier this week while she sat with him as he nuzzled his snout into her armpit.”He doesn’t need a miracle,” she responded without hesitation. “He is a miracle.”Sure enough.The 14-year-old emaciated, arthritic, deaf, stray dog with worms, a horrible ear infection, a bum knee, disc problems, and debilitating prostate issues, was pulled…

Please see photos, video, and full story below or at https://goodnews.love/.St. Francis the miracle dog (formerly called Marcos) surely believes in miracles by now! Just over a week ago, the 14-year-old emaciated dog was scheduled for euthanization in a California shelter while rescue workers nationwide and beyond scrambled to find him a way out. The emaciated, mostly deaf dog with worms, apparent cataracts, an enlarged prostate and testacle,…

I remember the day I finally realized I am a daughter of the most high God. I was exhilarated – beyond description. I could barely fathom that after decades of living like a wounded bird, I had discovered that I had the wings to fly. I had had the wings long before I made this realization, but how could I fly without knowing the wings I possessed.…

Just the other day, the words “highway to holiness” dropped right smack dab down into my huge heart. I beg your pardon? I might have inquired. But I held my tongue. Instead, I opened my heart and waited. Just as God often does in my life, He drops me a tidbit – and follows it up with a sumptuous meal. This is what came to…

Marcos began his new life yesterday after a flight clear across the entire nation by burrowing his nose in his first snow, and today I heard him over the telephone lapping a bowl of broth in his homemade chicken soup. He arrived yesterday in Maryland after a 24 hour flight with many stops after being rescued from euthanization in a California shelter by his rescue…

“We lift Marcos up to you, Lord,” my dear friend Annie prayed with me over the telephone today. Then, she added, “Well, I guess he’s very close to you right now.” We laughed.Marcos, saved from euthanization just days ago in a California shelter, has begun his new life and is now literally en route between California and Maryland. In fact, as of 5:30 pm today,…

Just when I thought my hands and heart were full enough, the Lord put it on my heart to take Marcos the Miracle Dog into our fold. Some would call me crazy, and I am – crazy for Christ. I believe in miracles, and most of all I believe in sharing the Gospel and ministering the Lord’s love to a world in need. So why…

James 1:17 KJV “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.”I met her in the soup kitchen. Winter. Cold. So cold. Cold for South Carolina anyway. She had her little girl bundled up next to her; glued to her side like a rag doll. Eight months…

Marcos needs a major miracle, and if he had already received one perhaps he would be available to ask you for your help. But he is currently in a California shelter where he will soon be euthanized if he does not get his miracle. But this will be just one small piece of the major miracle he needs. Rescue workers nationwide and even internationally have…

“I’ve been under tremendous attack from the enemy today,” I said to God inside my heart just moments ago. “I don’t know what I’ve done – ” I continued. But then God interrupted. “What you’ve done,” He interjected, “is you’ve decided to follow me.” Like so many fellow believers, I have mistakenly believed that following Christ means life will get easier not harder. But, of…

Just in case anyone was preparing to put out a missing person’s alert for the director of Walk by Faith Ministry, I am happy to say there is no need. may not qualify for a motion picture or a front-page news story, but I do believe friends of Walk by Faith Ministry deserve to know the news: I am alive…

“Therefore if any man be in Christ, He is a new creature; old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” 2 Corinthians 5:17If you are in Christ, you are a new creature, right? If old things are passed away, then all things are become new, right? As I lay prostrate on the floor today before the Lord, I repented for holding onto…

Thanksgiving isn’t over. It has just begun. The holidays may be finished for another year, but the time to praise the Lord has just begun. Tonight, I fell so very short of praising my Lord. As I clicked away on my keyboard to write the book in which I am now deeply immersed, I heard the sound. The sound! The uh-oh sound. Dancer the beagle…

Do you ever feel like God isn’t listening? Do you sometimes feel like you cry out to Him, and cry out to Him, and still He does not hear? Do you feel like no matter how much you pray, still there is no response? Do you feel like you could talk to Him forever, and still he would not reply? Do you feel like you…

Some people’s Christmas miracles come in big silver wrapped packages with pretty pink bows. Other people’s Christmas miracles come in the form of glittering engagement rings, new beautiful babies, and happily-ever-after family reunions. Still other people’s miracles come as long sought after forgiveness, forever hoped-for reconciliation, and priceless restoration with long-lost loved ones. My Christmas miracle is none of the above and not even close. Almost…

God tells us in His Word not to worship the work of our hands, nor to worship idols, and He has reminded me the gifts He has given me are not so that I may be acknowledged, accepted, recognized, validated, or even loved. The gifts He has given me are for His glory, and my work is to be a labor of love for Him.…

Some people probably have angels encamped about them. I probably do; I cannot see them. I have dogs; I see them clearly. They lay around me as I write the book Walk by Faith Ministry will soon publish. One snores, one licks, others doze, one watches me. Each says thank you in his or her own way – thank you for a home. But I…

Eph 3:20-21 “Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.”The Lord provided in a mighty way for Angel the miracle dog as several huge hearted human angels stepped forward in a…

Some angels fly in the heavens, some angels dance around our lives, some angels deliver messages from God, and then there is the kind of Angel who could use some more angels of her own.Angel has come such a very long way since her human angel whisked her out of a shelter to avoid euthanization, gave her the best of emergency veterinary care, and handed…

Elijah was adopted by an absolute angel! Three days after adoption, he was diagnosed with cancer in several parts of his body. His new mom Patricia Rossi did back flips to help save his life. Despite the enormous financial cost and the emotional roller-coaster of emotions given the shocking news, she refused to give up – and would not consider returning him to Walk by…

Freckles is only one very small, special reason why Walk by Faith Ministry is folding our paws & hands in prayer again & pounding the pavement in search of new monthly sponsors to help us fulfill our vision.We are taking great strides forward in our vision to share the Gospel as we minister the Lord’s love to a world in need – even as we…

Tonight I received another message from the Lord, and once again I believe it is for all of us – the world, and not just me. God doesn’t always have the timing I would choose, and this time He caught me in the bathroom. Fortunately, I just happened to have pen and paper. I cannot help but think it is an early Christmas present from…

“For I am the Lord that healeth thee (Exodus 15:26 KJV)”We’ve all been broken in one way or another. We live in a broken world, after all. Broken legs. Broken hearts. Broken marriages. Broken families. Broken by addiction. Broken by poverty. Broken by sin. Ever since Adam and Eve messed things up in the Garden of Eden, the world has been struggling with a host…

For anyone following the amazing story of our very senior miracle doggie, Mother Theresa, her recent vet visit and lab work show she does not appear to be headed for heaven anytime particularly soon.Mother Theresa, whose owner planned to shoot and kill her, whose rescuer abandoned her in flight from the police, whose next caretaker left her in a pen dirty and lonely – all…

If you think perfect gentlemen only open doors, think again. God is the ultimate perfect gentleman, and He is also in the business of closing doors. Unfortunately, like so many of my fellow men and women, I am prone to praising Him for opening doors and griping, complaining, and becoming discouraged when He closes them. It has just dawned on me recently that I should…

God spoke to me today in such a profound way – He showered me with His love with a true story of triumph. I have been attacked on every side by Satan for so very long that I have just about forgotten that there is more to life than spiritual warfare, and today God knew how much my flesh would love to throw in the…

Remember Mother Theresa? The miracle dog, whose owner threatened to shoot and kill her, was rescued by a man who abandoned her in flight from the police, was then stuck in someone’s back yard where she sat dirty and lonely, was then taken in by Walk by Faith Ministry, and then attacked by a fellow dog so badly it took her vet two hours on…

When you can’t see the way, will you follow the Lord anyway? It is so much easier to walk with confidence when we know where we are going, when the directions are written clearly, the signs along the way are obvious, and the light is bright to illuminate our path. We are not walking by faith then; we are walking by what we see, and…

When God sends you to a new land, do not be surprised when some of the first inhabitants you will meet are Giants determined to send you back to where you came from. Furthermore, do not be surprised if your flesh cries out with desperation to pack your bags and flee. And, do not be surprised if a terrified voice pipes up to convince you…

This past week, I celebrated . No, I did not gorge on food. I did not cook a turkey. I did not get together with lots of friends. In fact, I ate too little and I saw almost nobody at all. I had some major health symptoms that brought me to the toilet time and again, to my bed for relief – and…

Ever heard of a human bark collar? Me neither. Well, that’s not entirely true. I had not heard of one until just tonight, when I realized God loves me so much that He has created a human bark collar for me. I have been having some mild, but signficant, symptoms in my body – irregular, erratic, but uncomfortable just the same.Over the past 24 hours,…

When we come to the end of ourselves, how glorious it is to see God at work. Oh, if only we would yield at the start rather than be forced to surrender by sheer exhaustion and defeat. I have been blessed to witness miracles in two women’s lives in weeks past that exalt the name of the Lord as clearly these sisters in Christ could not…

Who said a 42-year old woman shouldn’t let her birthday wishes be known? Call me a kid, but I can’t help but share my birthday wishes as I approach my 43rd birthday on October 16. So what exactly would I like for my birthday? I would love for 15 more big-hearted individuals, families, or businesses to sign up for Walk by Faith Ministry’s Sponsorship Program…

I wonder how many of us can fathom at all how much God really loves us. I got a good taste of His love just days ago as I drove down the highway in South Carolina where I have just moved. For the first time in nearly two years, I saw my husband who abandoned me and has just sent me a summons for divorce.…

“We’ve all been dumped,” I told my very special dogs tonight after finding little blind Glory smooshed into a too small crate with two-footed Winnie. I didn’t put them in the crate; they went in there to keep each other company, as they often do. “You’ve been dumped, Glory,” I told her. “And you Jake. And Winnie.” Then it really dawned on me as I…

How amazing is God? He has shown me once again in yet another phenomenal testimony. When He moved me 4.5 years ago from South Carolina to Virginia, my husband and I gave away most of our belongings – including my bright yellow Ford Ranger pickup truck – because a woman promised us free housing, furnishings, a car, Internet, and phone in exchange for watching her…
