HEAVEN SERENADES: Oh That You May Know Me

(Heaven Serenades are poems written to be read or sung, called Psalms)   If you recall from a previous blog, “In the Fullness of Time,” like our brother, Job, our Father uses everything in our life, especially suffering, for His amazing purposes. We also learned, He uses it to draw us into a deeper, more intimate relationship with Him. One of my favorite scriptures says,   “After you have suffered for a little while, the God of ALL GRACE [who…

STANDING IN CHRIST AND RESISTING FEAR

STANDING IN CHRIST AND RESISTING FEAR

  I had a different blog prepared for this week but our Father wants to share His heart with us today. If you read the article by the Washington Post this week stating “74 percent of the new cases of the Delta Variant were of people who had been vaccinated for the COVID-19.” It continued by saying, “Even though they were vaccinated, there were no deaths reported only symptoms of headaches, sore throats, and coughs.” With this in mind, I…

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?

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: 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…
