All In A Day’s Work

By Danny Parkes

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.

God Needs You to Help Others

By Danny Parkes

My head was screaming with disagreement. I did not have peace. Sure, I had exercise, for I was at the pool. But I didn’t have peace. I had great disturbance, for I was concerned about so many things. What were those things? Hum … they were hard to enumerate. I felt like a failure. I…

When the Holy Spirit Leaves

By Danny Parkes

I had not watched a secular movie for months — maybe even six months — but then I had the “good fortune” to be able to watch “Air Force One” with Harrison Ford. My question is, have you seen that movie, and what did you think of it? The thrill of entertainment was riding high…

God Will Work It Out

Got a problem? God will work it out. I would like to share with you a small problem I had, and how God worked it out. It is just one example that could be given, but it’s a real living example, nevertheless. I was driving in my car, and realized I was close to the…

Touch not the unclean thing

By Danny Parkes

I was engaged in an email conversation once, a long time ago, with a fellow who was obviously a little upset with me. Not a bother.
