Are you tired of all the headlines proclaiming evil in our nation? It seems like 99% of the “breaking news” we hear about from secular media is bad, worse, and worst!

This content is supported by your donations.


However, I got tickled recently when I thought how we, as Christians, might reshape those headlines to focus on truth.

How different would the world look if the breaking news proclaimed the goodness, faithfulness, and mercy of God—instead of the gloom and doom that society embraces? I think we’d be an awful lot happier and more encouraged. It would help us to remind ourselves daily that the Word of God is still true, and our Sovereign God still sits on His throne. He is still the governmental center of the universe!

So, with sanctified humor and tongue in cheek, I found myself imagining some rewritten-for-good headlines. And I thought that perhaps you might also enjoy the humor of a few of these.

Friend, examine with me the following 25 “rewritten” breaking news headlines that proclaim the goodness of God.

And granted, some of these are a little long to be actual newspaper headlines; however, work with me, okay? Here we go:

  1. BREAKING: As More Banks Fail, Jesus Christ Remains the Same
  2. BREAKING: Wicked People In Politics, But God Still On Throne
  3. BREAKING: Voters Frustrated, But Ekklesia Still Rules
  4. BREAKING: Jesus Still Casts Out Demons
  5. BREAKING: Deep State Manipulates, But Jesus Turns Hearts of Kings Like Water
  6. BREAKING: God Still Heals Land When Christians Humble Themselves, Pray, Seek Him, and Repent
  7. BREAKING: Christians Persecuted, But God’s Compassions Fail Not
  8. BREAKING: Danger On Every Side, But No Evil Shall Befall You
  9. BREAKING: Recession Strikes, But They That Wait On the Lord Shall Not Be Put to Shame
  10. BREAKING: Elderly Man After God’s Own Heart Has Never Seen the Righteous Forsaken, Nor His Offspring Begging Bread
  11. BREAKING: Mutual Funds Down 70%; God Still Supplies All Our Needs
  12. BREAKING: People Feel Forgotten, But God Still Hears Prayer
  13. BREAKING: 4 Banks Fail, But God Remains Faithful
  14. BREAKING: People Feel Scared, But Perfect Love Casts Out Fear
  15. BREAKING: Depression Strikes, But In Presence of God Is Fullness of Joy

  23. BREAKING: Common Sense Flees Nation, But Wisdom Still Freely Available From Above
  24. BREAKING: God Redeems Nation Despite Presidential Mishaps
  25. BREAKING: People Hate God, But His Goodness Sneaks Up On Them and Brings Repentance

Beloved, can you find something to smile about in this list of 25 bits of breaking good news?

I sure hope so. Remember, friend, that morning by morning God’s mercies are still new. Our nation may be in upheaval and tumults of various kinds, but our Father in Heaven still rules and reigns. He is still on His throne, and your prayers in the name of Jesus are still stronger than the devil could ever be.

Rest in His love and keep your faith in His Word today!

Thank you , Jamie, for that reminder of whom we serve, and that He will NEVER leave us, or forsake us. Yes, the secular news is all about doom and gloom, but we, as His children , know that He is really in control, not these things in this life, that are subject to change. In order to stay focused on His Kingdom and all the good news of the Kingdom, we cannot get caught up in the doom and gloom of the secular news, nor the ungodly behavior around us. Greater is He who is in us, than he who is in the world. This is Scripture to stand upon. Thank You, Jesus!

I LOVE this idea. I would really like to see these titles be the norm. It would be so encouraging and take our faith to the next level! Please consider changing the “bias” in this way.

All the above Scriptures minister to me. We should not ever give up and continue to 0ersevere in faith, love and prayer. For the Scripture states if we do not give up we shall reap harvest. The Holy Spirit just gave me this now.

Breaking – Jesus claims more lives than Covid!
Breaking – False prophet exposed! Said he met Christ on the road and is now preaching the Good News!
Breaking – People turn to Jesus in these tough times – find true love and acceptance in Him.
Breaking – Ru Paul comes to Jesus, renounces his lifestyle and encourages others to do the same!

Storms and chance of tornados across the country but Jesus calms the storm and God is not a God of confusion.
