HEAVEN SERENADES: In This Place There is Grace

  Our outward man is perishing, can you feel it? Our bodies are not holding up like they used to, right? Do you hear the creaks and cracks as you move around or get up in the morning? If you don’t, great. One day you will. As we age, we discover a whole new way of looking at life. Even our conversations about life and death change. As our eyes grow dimmer, it is really a blessing because some of…

HEAVEN SERENADES: Break Forth Light of God

  Have you ever been stuck spiritually? It felt like you weren’t growing in your relationship with God? You were praying, reading, studying, or just going through the motions, and it appeared as if, this is it? But, you wanted more, so much more in your relationship with the Lord but you just couldn’t seem to find the answer to why you were the way you were.  Our brother David felt this way many times and wrote these words in…

HEAVEN SERENADES: We Are His Body

HEAVEN SERENADES: We Are His Body

  I returned a few days ago from a trip to Dallas to visit my Heart Friend, Carolyn. We call each other Heart Friends because we are connected heart to heart by our Father; He personally connected us almost 15 years ago at a conference. It was interesting over the years to discover we both were counselors and both suffered from DID (Dissociative Identity Disorder) due to childhood traumas. Carolyn is trained in bringing those who suffer from DID, ritual,…

HEAVEN SERENADES: The Life Within

HEAVEN SERENADES: The Life Within

  This world offers us so much, yet it fills the soul with so little. We spend so much time trying desperately to make our life perfect, right? We have the perfect house, the perfect family, the perfect car, the perfect job, and as we get old, we try to maintain the perfect body. But as we find out, it is all just a mirage. Like the wind that blows away the petals of a flower, so does our life…

HEAVEN SERENADES: The Voice of the Lord

HEAVEN SERENADES: The Voice of the Lord

  In this world, there are so many voices to distract us. These voices can paralyze us with doubt, fear, anger, and even pamper us with half-truths. No matter what voice we listen to, there is always ONE voice that will always guard us and keep us safe during times of weakness, distress, or uncertainty, regardless of what goes on with us or around us. That voice is the Voice of Our Lord! He is always speaking, but are we…

HEAVEN SERENADES: We Are More Than Containers

HEAVEN SERENADES: We Are More Than Containers

  Growing up in the church, there was a phrase we used to describe our identity. One of those phrases was, “I am just a vessel to be used by God.” I used to believe that’s all I was and nothing more. So, when I sang in the choir or on the worship team, I just saw myself as God’s vessel for Him to flow through. But this mindset only made me feel like I was created to be used…

HEAVEN SERENADES: Behold the Lamb’s Wife

  Have you ever been serenaded? I have. It was my birthday and a friend of mine, Martha, and I went to Macaroni Grill in Austin for lunch. It was one of my favorite restaurants to eat at and hers too. During lunch, one of the waiters came to our table, looked at me, and began singing at the top of his lungs in Italian. It was the most beautiful song I had ever heard, even though I had no…

Welcome to 2021!

Welcome to 2021!

    Welcome to 2021! This blog calls for a short reflection, 2020 was tough! When I thought about 2020, this word came to my heart, “Faithful!” If you didn’t discover Him as “Faithful,” I sure did.  The word faithful is defined as worth trusting because they are steadfast, unmoveable, loyal, never changing, and constant.  Jesus is described as “Sticking to us, closer than a brother.” Oh, yes, He is… and He lives within us by the power of His…

BEHOLDING THE LORD OF LORDS WITHIN US

BEHOLDING THE LORD OF LORDS WITHIN US

  When I was talking to the Lord about our blog for this week, He brought a passage of scripture to my heart. There are many who believe because I say, “I am a Christian, I have accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior” but live as they please; “I am following the Lord.” Here is how Jesus defines His TRUE followers in Luke 6: 46-49 (Amplified Bible).   Jesus was performing miracles and was popular in that day…
