GOOD NEWS DAILY

“I’m stuck. I’m stuck. I’m stuck.” Anyone who knows me well, or who has crossed my path for even moments, has likely heard these words come tumbling from my mouth – and heart – over the past month. Or years, for that matter. In the past two months, I have been towed out of mud in my own yard, towed out of snow into my…

“Pastor Freddie,” I told my father in Christ over the telephone today. “I did some writing a few days ago. God has really shown me that I need to completely let go of something in my life.” I proceeded to tell him what it was. Pastor Freddie, who has spent the past month since miraculously surviving the Haiti earthquake racing back and forth between two…

Pray for me! Pray for me! How many times have you said it? How many times have you done it? How many times have you fallen for the same big fat prayer mistake that I have? I have begged, pleaded, implored, whined, complained, moaned, and thrown five million pity parties for myself in order to get people to pray for me so I could come…

What do you do when love fails? Love never fails, right? Isn’t that what the Bible teaches? The Bible says, “Charity (love) never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail…(1 Cor. 13:8 KJV).” So how can love fail if the Bible clearly teaches that love never fails? The truth is that the love of God, or agape love, never fails. Human love does…

“How can you possibly have so much energy after everything you’ve been through and all that you’re doing?” I asked Pastor Freddie on the telephone this morning. “You don’t get tired in the middle of the battle,” Pastor Freddie reminded me, almost always managing to include a biblical lesson in the midst of a telephone conversation. “You wait until the war is over to get…

Winnie and Glory, two very special dogs rescued by the Lord from tragic situations, lay so smooshed together today on their human couch that I could barely tell where one dog began or ended. As I spoke to them, I heard in my own words yet another powerful lesson demonstrated through the miracle dogs of Walk by Faith Ministry.“Winnie,” I told the dog who lost…

Do you know why you are here? I can honestly say I have total clarity today about why I am here on this earth. It may have taken four long decades to come to the realization, and I know now I could have learned long ago had I followed after the Lord as I do now but I am thrilled to be able to say…

Remember the lepers in the Bible who were healed? Do you remember how many lepers there were? Do you remember how many lepers were healed by Jesus? Do you remember how many praised God for their healing? Which of the lepers are you? There were 10 lepers. When they followed the directions of Jesus, they were cleansed. Only one took the time and love to…

There is only one reason my beloved Pastor Freddie is alive today following the horrific earthquake in Haiti just days ago. He arrived one day before the earthquake, sat in his office only 10 miles from the center of the earthquake, and was found alive and uninjured. He is alive because the Lord God almighty saved His life. If God saved your life from a…

Praise the Lord God almighty! My beloved Pastor Freddie, my father in Christ, has been found alive in Haiti. I know virtually no details, other than God has saved his life. And I believe with all of my heart that God has breathtakingly big plans for Pastor Freddie’s Kingdom work as he walks forward by faith in love. God sent him to Haiti one day…

Yesterday I visited a church that was bold in every wonderful way imaginable. Everyone who noticed I was a visitor went out of their way to greet me. I can promise you it takes boldness to welcome me to a new church. I prefer to slip in quietly and not be noticed. I know I am not easy to approach when I am trying to…

Today I took a dream to the landfill. Literally. I loaded a maroon recliner chair into the back of my Honda Element, surprised I could lift it on my own. The chair had been one loved one’s gift to another some years ago, and the significance of the chair I realize no words could truly touch. “Hey, I have a donation for you,” I told…

I do not stumble when I walk in the light, and I always stumble when I walk in the dark. Do you do the same? I am not talking about tripping over a twig on the sidewalk, nor I am speaking of falling on black ice I cannot see. Do you know what God has to say about walking in the light?”He that loveth his…

I have been writing since I was a little girl, with plenty of breaks along the way, but I can honestly say I am happier than I have ever been in my writing life. I am deep into writing a light Christian novel and loving every second of it. In fact, the hardest part is being away from the computer, distracted by life’s daily happenings.…

Yesterday Mother Theresa had her sutures removed following two big surgeries needed after a devastating attack from a fellow rescue dog who is now in heaven playing in the presence of the Lord. Mother Theresa, thanks to God and her awesome helpers and prayer warriors, is doing beautifully. Believe it or not, her neck – after two hours on the surgery table the first time followed by a…

Hobble. Cane. Limp. Cane. Forward. A step. Cane. Limp. Forward. Again. I honesty only saw the man out of the corner of my left eye. Too cold. Too windy. Too winter to stop. Why would I stop anyway? What could I possibly say anyway? So we continued into the convenience store from the parking lot. His hobble. My hurried step. I got indoors much quicker.…

I have never had children, but it is my understanding pregnant women like to have just about everything planned before they go into labor. The right doctor. The right family members around. The right hospital. The right clothes packed in a suitcase. The right babysitter for the other kids. It is also my understanding that an increasing number of doctors are inducing labor to even…

Walk by Faith Ministry’s rescue dogs are looking for safe and loving forever homes.

I am so weary, ever so weary. I am tired from a lifetime of too many trials and tribulations. I have come up for air over and over again, excited to finally arrive at a place of rest and refreshing, only to sink back down to where I grow weary gasping for air. I have just come up for air, now I am down gasping…

Samuel this past week headed for his new home – with dad, mom, brother dog, and five-year-old girl in tow. He was last reported to be enormously happy with his new family, proudly displaying a decapitated doll and letting his new family know he could not tell the difference between a little girl and a puppy dog. He has his new family on its toes…

Ever been to police academy for your thoughts? I have. The Lord has showed me I have not taken one of His scriptures seriously enough. When He tells us to cast down our imaginations along with anything that tries to rise against knowledge of Him, He gives us a command that cannot be missed. He tells us to “bring into captivity” our thoughts to the…

LEARNING HOW TO WALKThe hardest part about learning how to walk is not the joy of the steps we take forward, but the disappointment and discouragement each time we find ourselves once more in a heap on the ground. Fallen. Learning how to walk by faith, I believe, is as much about learning how to handle the falls as it is about enjoying the blessings…

NEW YEAR, NEW BEGINNING. Just when I thought my circumstances in the year 2009 could not get any worse, they did. How many times? Time and again. Every time I came up for air from yet another loss or challenge, boom. More pain. More heartache. More trials and tribulations. But the Lord does not see losses and heartache as the world does. He does not…

What did God give us for Christmas? “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life (John 3:16 KJV).”There is no greater gift from the Lord than His sacrifice of His only begotten Son that we should have eternal life and never walk this journey on earth alone. Jesus…

Mother Theresa truly is a Christmas miracle. Thanks to God, awesome vet Dr. Brown of Loudoun Vet in Purcellville, VA, and her prayer warriors, Mother Theresa bounced back from her 2nd surgery since being attacked by a fellow rescue dog – so much so that her new nickname is Miss Piglets. She has a voracious appetite, a sign of how quickly she has recovered even…

Praise the Lord! Thanks be to God and the phenomenal staff at Loudoun Vet Service in Purcellville, VA, including Dr. Brown, his surgeon, Mother Theresa has just arrived home from her 2nd surgery since being severely attacked by a fellow rescue dog. Even at 12 years old, despite a history of an owner that planned to shoot and kill her, a rescuer that abandoned her…

All glory goes to God and thanks to all the wonderful donors who helped Mother Theresa have her first big surgery after being attacked by a fellow rescue dog. When I had to send 2.5 year old Abigail to heaven for aggression – who wagged her tail to the vet’s and kissed my tears away – I knew on my own I would not have…

How hard it is to believe in the most trying of times that God truly knows our needs – and that He will supply them as promised when we follow His instructions. My year is ending with the same seemingly insurmountable challenges with which it began, and yet I know in my heart God knows my needs. When Jesus sent His followers out to do…

For those who are following the story of Mother Theresa, the rescue dog who was badly attacked by a fellow rescue dog, she went to the vet yesterday for a follow-up. Her skin had started turning black, cracking open, and bleeding. The vet had expected this would possibly happen, as the blood after the fight was unable to reach her skin as needed. I have…

Last night when I cried out to the Lord – and oh did I cry – He gave me an answer to my question. How simple it was. “Believe.” At the tail end of the one of the hardest years of my life, with one great loss after tragedy after another, I see now what happened on my faith walk.Have you ever wondered in the…

You’ve got to see it to believe it. Samuel the rescue dog decided to tell Santa just how much he wanted a new home for Christmas! Check it out at www.youtube.com/walkbyfaithministry.Please visit Walk by Faith Ministry at https://www.walkbyfaithministry.com.

Thanks be to God and a phenomenal veterinary clinic & surgeon, Loudoun Veterinary Services in Purcellville, VA, and Dr. Stang, Mother Theresa has begun her recovery. For the first few days, she barely moved and looked like she was in a coma. Slowly, her eyes became undazed and I no longer needed to feed her by squishing soft food through the side of her mouth &…

Yesterday was a devastating day. Two of Walk by Faith Ministry’s rescue dogs had a fight two days ago, and yesterday morning I had to send one of them to heaven at two years old. She wagged her tail all the way to the vet, and then she reached up and kissed the tears I cried as. I told her she would be with Jesus and I would be…

As I finish up one of the most grueling, challenging years of my life, I have a testimony to share I never would have expected in the midst of my horrendous circumstances brought on more than anything by the consequences of a loved one’s sinful choices. For years, I stood in faith – wobbly much of the time, strong others, I will confess – that…

This morning I looked – for a total of about two seconds – at 1 Chronicles 3 in the Bible. I was excited to read something yummy, as I love digging into the Word. I was dismayed to find yet another long list of names. Quickly, I decided to move on with my morning. But I stopped, and I believe the Holy Spirit revealed something…

Unfortunately nobody has stepped forward to help Ben2, who has now been crated 24-7 for several months due to recovery from surgery on a broken femur. His current foster home has NO carpeting, and he therefore has nowhere he can walk and hang out inside with the potential to fall and re-injure his leg. So he stays in his crate all day & night. PLEASE…

There is nothing like a dog fight to teach a biblical lesson. Okay, it wasn’t a bad fight. It was barely a fight at all. But it was enough to put a biblical thought upon my heart. Apparently Freckles (who still needs a home!) was dirty, at least according to his foster host, Billie. Billie decided to give Freckles a good bath, and still is…

What will you give this holiday season? Will you give the Lord’s love? Will you give help? Will you give patience? Will you give understanding? Will you give forgiveness? Will you give the mercy? Will you give compassion? Why are the stores packed with people buying Christmas presents? Why are people saving up money to buy gifts for family and friends? Why are people wrapping gifts…

God does not want us to clean up to go to Him. He wants us to go to Him to get cleaned up. I do not just speak merely from experience. Nor do I speak only from wishful thinking. I speak from the Word of the Lord Himself. The Bible says: “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our…

I asked a friend the other day for help concerning a woman I know who needs a sense of purpose with her life. I inquired specifically about how to get started in a certain profession within a creative Christian company with which she is affiliated. Her answer surprised me.”This company isn’t looking for people with a lot of experience with the gifts God has given them,”…

Did you ever stop to think how much time and care was taken in the Old Testament to build the temple and to take care of it? The Lord was so utterly explicit with His people in how He wanted it built, how He wanted it kept, and how He wanted it used. I remember being bored, and intimidated, by the intricate detail described in…

I will never forget the day I told my pastor what God had called me to do with my life. I told him. His answer was simple – and surprising. “Now begins the preparation,” Pastor Freddie said. I was flabbergasted. Preparation? God had told me what He wanted me to do, He had told me how to begin, and I automatically assumed God’s instructions are for right away. Pastor Freddie knew better.…
