ALL LIVES MATTER

ACRES OF DIAMONDS

ON ASSIGNMENT

HEAVENLY CHOICES

SATAN'S PLOT



THE MUSIC OF LIFE

MY MIRACLE

HOPE AND FAITH

CONFIDENCE IN CHRIST JESUS

Live-streaming

THE WONDERS OF HIS LOVE

SPIRITUAL THINGS

AIN'T NO ROCK

20/20 Vision

PROTECTING OUR BLINDSIDE

HE CHOOSE ME

SEEN AND LOVED BY GOD

TREASURE BOX

SETTLED OUT OF COURT

JESUS KNEW

BASKET OF EGGS

The AGONY AND THE ECSTACY

IT IS A MATTER OF THE HEART

BLIND MEN

STAY IN YOUR LANE

THE MESSIAH'S SEAT

THE SILENT CRY

THE SINFULNESS OF SIN

THE GLORY OF GOD

MORE THAN JUST A BABE

GOD'S GUARDIAN ANGELS

SHAME, OH SHAME, AMERICA

ONCE UPON A PARABLE
 
I so enjoy creating stories…
 I call each a parable.
They can offer a solution
Or maybe make a burden bearable.
 
Jesus paints with parables
The Lost Coin and the Lost Sheep…
The Laborers in the Vineyard…
The Hidden Treasure buried deep.
 
He spoke of Sowers of the Seeds…
Birds and Flowers in the Field.
His every parable is pointing
To a truth God wants revealed.
 
From the tale of The Two Debtors
To the sorry Prodigal Son.
He takes us from The Talents
To The Good Samaritan.
 
The Wedding Feast or Unwilling Guests…
The Rich Man and Lazarus.
Every parable is a learning tool
  God uses to teach us.
 
I like to search for hidden meanings
Then rejoice in revelation…
Like the Budding of the Fig Tree
 Requires some contemplation.
 
There’s so much to gain from parables
Because they have so much to say.
Let’s all put on the mind of Christ
And think parable today.
