GOOD NEWS DAILY

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…

God never ceases to amaze me, but then why should He? He is God, after all. When I gave up my dream home in South Carolina, I asked the Lord to choose His. My only stipulation? He would find a home where His name would be glorified, the home would be dedicated to Him, and it would be a place for ministry. God chose the…

When Walk by Faith Ministry heads South on Labor Day for its BIG MOVE to South Carolina, don’t think this is any ordinary move. First off, Walk by Faith Ministy is not turning its back on Virginia; it is simply adding South Carolina into the mix. Walk by Faith will remain incorporated in Virginia and continue to operate as a national ministry with strong ties…

Walk by Faith Ministry, a 501c3 non-profit that shares the Gospel as we minister the Lord’s love to people and homeless dogs, too, with a special focus on those the world’s given up on, will walk – or rather drive – by faith to South Carolina on Labor Day to expand its horizons in the Hilton Head area, South Carolina. While we will stay incorporated in…

“You only see part of the picture,” someone once told me. “God sees the whole picture.” Another person said, “God does not want what’s good for you. He wants what’s best for you.” I did not understand either statement until I became deeply immersed in studying God’s Word and developed an intimate, personal relationship with Him through faith in Christ. What I have learned in…

Would you give up your popularity for Christ? I got my practice early in life; I was never popular. My brother always was. I always traveled in the smaller, academic circles while the popular folk moved about with those who garnered the favorable – and sometimes not so favorable – attention – of the world at large. I have noticed what the Lord asks me…

The Lord loves and cares for me so much that today He showed me something I have done wrong for decades of my life. He used three separate people recently to deliver His message, though for years He had tried to get my attention through numerous people and situations. Until today, I had resisted, denied, and defended. Today, I received the most wonderful gift when I made the…

I turn the fan on before I climb into bed for the night. Red, the infamous miracle dog who co-founded Walk by Faith Ministry, climbs onto one of the two baby mattresses that lie next to my bed. Then he climbs off. He knows better. Winnie, the two-footed dog, hoists her body into the air on her two front feet, walks in her unique way…

When God calls you to do something, say something, or go somewhere, how do you reply? Do you say YES, or do you reply no or maybe? I believe God is looking for a YES generation – an army of laborers who will do what He tells us, say what He aks us to say, and go where He sends us. I believe He wants us…
