Stories

Some of these stories may be true, some are obviously great parables that help teach us ways we know we should live, or encourage us to strive to be all that God wants us to be. I am especially partial to "The Pianist" because it so accurately portrays how I feel about my own life and the use of the gifts God has given me. I bring my tiny little offering forward and give it to God for His use, and with His accompaniment, my gift is transformed. I can do things. I can even do good things. But, I can do nothing GREAT apart from Him.
