HEAVEN SERENADES: The Longing for a Father

(Heaven Serenades are poems that could be read or sung, called Psalms)   Father’s Day is coming up next week, so this week I want to reflect, first, on our natural fathers and the roles they play in our lives. Here is an excerpt from a blog written in 2018 entitled, “The Power of Our Father.” GRACE WHISPERS – The Power of Our Father       Over the years, as a counselor, I understand how easy it is for us…

HEAVEN SERENADES: Prayer for Our Generation

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 My Beloved

HEAVEN SERENADES: You Are My Beloved

(Heaven Serenades are poems that could be read or sung, called Psalms)   Isn’t it a beautiful thing to know that we are IN Christ and He is IN us; we are His Beloved. No matter what we face each day, the ONENESS of our union is inseparable! I love Psalm 139:11-12 in the Amplified:   If I say, “Surely the darkness will cover me, and the night will be the only light around me,” Even the darkness is not dark…

HEAVEN SERENADES: You Are In Me

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: Yes Father, Here It Is (Again)

(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…

HEAVEN SERENADES: Seek and Ye Shall Find

HEAVEN SERENADES: Seek and Ye Shall Find

  One of my favorite games playing with my sister was Hide and Seek; do you remember that game? I loved finding new places to hide from her in the house but my favorite place was the hallway closet. It was the place we kept all of our dirty clothes. So, if you can imagine, it was quite stinky in there! Guess what? That usually was the last place she’d never look. I also loved playing Hide and Seek with…

HEAVEN SERENADES: What is Life?

HEAVEN SERENADES: What is Life?

  In 2018, I wrote a seven-part series called, “Two Trees in the Garden of Our Hearts.” If you haven’t read them, I think they will be quite interesting in understanding sin and the flesh, represented by The Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, operating in our lives. It also reveals the beautiful gift of Jesus Christ represented by The Tree of Life. He gave us the fullness of His life and kingdom to live in and through…

HEAVEN SERENADE: You Really Love Me

HEAVEN SERENADE: You Really Love Me

  Many of us grew up with poor self-esteem. Most of our lives were spent trying to prove how smart, how pretty, or how valuable we were. All of our personal and career achievements were saying to the world… “You see, I am worth loving and respecting.” Before I knew the Lord, that was my goal to prove… I was somebody. I became popular by singing, dancing, cheerleading, acting, and other things. Then, when I gave my heart to Jesus,…
