Small acts of Faith

By Stephanie Parker Sometimes I think God acts a bit like Mr. Miyagi from the movie ‘The Karate Kid.’ In the movie, Daniel wants Miyagi to teach him Karate, but instead, Miyagi gets him to do a list of chores. Miyagi instructs him to “wax on, wax off,” sand the floor and paint the fence. Daniel thinks he is being asked to do these things simply to earn the right to learn from Miyagi. Instead, all the while, Miyagi is teaching him Karate without him even realizing it. God works that way with us sometimes. God gives us little tasks,...

Turning to Christ and away from distractions

"How long will you love what is worthless and aim at deception?" - Psalm 4:2 I read this verse last night and it got me thinking. What things do I love that are worthless?

Those are just some of my worthless loves. How do I know...

As much as I enjoyed hearing those sweet words, they pale in comparison to the “I love you’s” that I get that are unprompted by gifts. The ones that come when you least...

Face your fears by keeping your eyes on Jesus

By Stephanie Parker My 4 year old son Maverick can easily swim from one end of our pool to the other… but only if I’m standing on the other side waiting for him. If I’m not there, a fear grips his little heart, tears begin to well up in his eyes and he loses all confidence in his swimming ability. He’s swum back and forth a million times without needing my help but my presence was what he needed. As I contemplated this, it made me wonder how much braver we, as Christians, might be if we could visibly see...
