The Flower (A Mother’s Day Poem)

By Danny Parkes

The following is probably not your typical poem that you might see inscribed on some mother’s day card. This is a poem that I wrote for my mother, and that “came to me” in about 30 seconds, as I was writing my mother today. Here is the deal. My mother does not know Jesus. My…

A letter to my landlord

By Danny Parkes

Dear Dave, I thought I would write you to wish you and your family season’s greetings. At this time of year, many people celebrate many different things. And when I was young, Jesus was not really part of the celebration. Today, it remains true that many people who celebrate Christmas do not celebrate the birth…

I am about to recount to you an incredible story that is absolutely mind-boggling (to me) and demonstrates quite a few things about God’s character and His love for people, as well as His oversight.

Divine Encounter: The S/x Shop Worker

By Danny Parkes

As I was running to catch my bus, I could not help but notice the man standing in front of the s/x shop. Certainly this man was in great need, and did not know the Lord. That, I was certain. I walked over to the man and started a conversation with him. “Are you the…

Satan’s Power (Is Real, But Limited)

By Danny Parkes

If you’ve read the Bible, you know that both God and Satan can do miracles. For example, the Egyptian magicians (operating in Satan’s power) were able to turn sticks of wood into living snakes (Exodus 7:12). That’s some feat, especially since snakes don’t have feet. But all joking aside, this really happened. This was one…

Righteous Persecution

By Danny Parkes

“The world cannot hate you, but it hates Me because I testify of it, that its deeds are evil.” (John 7:7) If you read some of the news, you would get the impression that hatred towards Christ and towards followers of Christ is a recent invention. However, that is far from the case. Jesus Himself…

You are THAT important!

By Danny Parkes

The following is an accurate description of an incredibly vivid and powerful dream that I had about a man that was about to kill himself. My sense is that I had the dream for the sake of someone who needs to know that they are loved and important. Do NOT kill yourself! This dream might…
