Daily Delight

He picked 12 of His closest. They followed Him, watched Him and questioned Him. He invested in them. They saw miracle after miracle that He performed. They still didn't quite know at times.
He warned them. Told them what was about to happen to Him and to some of them. He knew that His chosen would soon doubt Him, deny Him and then betray Him and still, He chose His last meal with those same men. They didn't quite grasp what was about to take place. How could they really?
He died a brutal, horrible, unjust death. Even with warning, they couldn't have been prepared for what He endured. 

He told them that He would live again. They still didn't quite get it.
I wonder so many things. What made them still question? Why didn't they leave if they didn't fully believe all of it? And at the end of it, I can only ask myself such a question. Why don't I fully trust Him when He's proven to be true to His word? It has to be more about my belief than His true nature.
At times, I don't get it. I can't see what He's doing but I know what He did. He did it. Just like He said He would.
I saw it. The tomb is empty. He's not there. Just like He said It would be. He left but He's coming again. Just like He said He is. I believe it. All of it. Call me crazy but I believe.
"Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?" -1 Corinthians 15:55  (NIV)

Life and life more abundantly. Just for you. Just for me.
All we have to do is believe.

                                               Jill Parr

≫ ≫ Singer. Speaker. Writer. Coffee consumer. Wife. Mom. Mimi. Shoe lover. These are some of the things that make Jill Parr who she is. Although she is passionate about all of these, she might be most passionate about helping women walk into their true identity of who it is that God created them to be.

Parr toured the country as a CCM recording artist, playing festivals and churches for over a decade. Never giving up her dream to sing full time, God started moving her in a new direction in 2009. She started speaking to women and singing less, all while wrestling with the idea of this new season.

Parr’s husband, Brian Hardin, founded the Daily Audio Bible in 2006. Parr is the founder of, “More Gathering” that is sponsored by the Daily Audio Bible, annually. (www.moregathering.com)

Jill and Brian live outside of Nashville, Tennessee, with their 5 kids and first grandchild. They travel extensively throughout the year.

In addition to speaking and singing, Jill enjoys shoe shopping, the outdoors, cooking, fashion, music, painting art all while enjoying great coffee.
