HEAVEN SERENADES: Furnace for the Soul

HEAVEN SERENADES: Furnace for the Soul

(Heaven Serenades are poems that are read or sung called, Psalms)   If you recall from our last blog, “In the Fullness of Time,” like our brother, Job, our Father uses everything in our life, especially suffering, for His amazing purposes.

HEAVEN SERENADES: In the Fullness of Time

(Heaven Serenades are poems written to be read or sung, called Psalms)   It is interesting how we all sometimes try to understand the ways of God in our lives without inquiring of Him but presume we know what He is up to. The wisest man in the world cannot fully understand all the workings of our Father in His universe, so why do we try to figure Him out? I have discovered there are things our Father won’t let…

CELEBRATING OUR FREEDOM JULY 2021

  I was in the grocery store the other day without wearing my mask and smiled. Then I said, “Lord, thank you so much for your grace and protection, and the COVID-19 shots; I am FREE to move more freely and can breathe again!” I am so grateful for the little things in my life; what about you? You can’t truly appreciate the freedoms we have until they are limited or taken away, right? For example, hanging out with friends…

HEAVEN SERENADES: I Shall Boast in My Weakness

(Heaven Serenades are poems that could be read or sung called Psalms)   It has been almost a month since Mr. Sun came out to play with me in the “Sunshine State.” It has rained almost every day this month which has caused quite a depression in my brain and emotions. I enjoy doing things like swimming, walking, biking, and being outdoors, which I can’t do. Bobblehead (combination of depression, obsessive tendencies, confusion, and babbling) is what I get to…

HEAVEN SERENADES: Prayer for Our Generation

(Heaven Serenades are poems that could be read or sung, called Psalms)   Do you remember the movie, “The Pretender?” It was a television series in 2001, an action drama movie that became a weekly series. Jarod, the main character, was a crime fighter who disguised himself as different people to catch bad guys. It was amazing how Jarod could go undetected as he deceived people pretending to be a pilot, doctor, and other professions. This movie came to mind…

HEAVEN SERENADES: You Are In Me

(Heaven Serenades are poems that could be read or sung, called Psalms)   I was thinking about a passage of scripture when I woke up the other day and wanted to share a little insight on it today. Ephesians, Chapter 2, the Amplified version of the Bible states:   And you [He MADE ALIVE when you] were [spiritually] dead and separated from Him because of your transgressions and sins, 2 in which you once walked. You were following the ways of this world…

(Heaven Serenades are poems that could be read or sung, called Psalms)    A wife sat by her husband’s side as she watched her husband dying of cirrhosis of the liver; he was an alcoholic and wouldn’t get help for his addiction.   A mother and father stay awake endless nights waiting for their teenage son or daughter to come home safely from a night of partying and drugs.   A child hides in the closet or under the covers…
