Biography

Theresa Heflin

 

I was born in Germany while my dad served in the military in 1954. When I was in the second grade, my parents, my sisters, and I moved back to the United States and lived in Lawton, Oklahoma. My dad continued to serve in the Army until he retired. In 1989, my dad moved to heaven.

 

We were a family that always believed in God and lived in a social setting of church activities. I remember when my nine-year-old little self accepted Christ as my personal Savior. I can still remember how clean I felt after my baptism. I wanted to serve the Lord with all my heart forever. That lasted until I graduated from high school. Then, it was time for me to experience the “real” world.

 

The real world welcomed me with open arms and I married him. Then the shocking moment came that I may have been mistaken. With much devastation and drama, I picked myself back up and decided to try out a new life in Houston, Texas. It was in Houston that my life changed to mom and my beautiful daughter emerged into my life forever.

 

Life began again with Dick Heflin, Missy, and Allison. It has now grown to Missy and Gene with my grandsons Parker and John, Allison and Stephen with my grandsons Stephen and Hunter. Dick died in 2002 and we had to say our final goodbye on Valentine’s Day.

 

Dick was a hospital administrator and we lived in different areas throughout Tennessee. He predominately worked for the Methodist Health Care Systems and I was a stay-at-home mom. My life consisted of volunteer work for the community and our church.

 

One day we had an opportunity to become partial owners of the Three Rivers Community Hospital in Waverly, Tennessee. After we retired, we built our dream home in Franklin, Tennessee. Six months after Dick retired, he was diagnosed with Leukemia, three years later, lung cancer, eight months later, I buried my fifty-five year old husband after a twenty-year marriage.

 

Life began again at forty-seven with most of the money gone and our dream home had to go. The past five years have been the richest years of my spiritual growth. I had to lean on God for everything. I began to realize in a very personal way that God truly does come through for us when we do not know which way to turn. I was old enough to know I did not have the answers and I needed help.

 

My deeper growth began at the Peoples Church in Franklin, Tennessee. I began my Bible studies with the women studying Beth Moore’s Breaking Free series. That began a healing process from within. I have since done all of her Bible studies and loved each one. I studied Henry Blackaby’s series Experiencing God, and Avery Willis’ MasterLife program. At the end of every lesson in this series, you are asked to write down what you sense God is saying to you.

 

I began to write.  It became apparent to me that God was giving me love letters and it was soothing to my lonesome soul. One day when I was walking in the park, I heard a gentle whisper say, “Give my love letters to the world.” From that moment on, I began to write Love Letters from God to God’s Mighty Warriors.  I am nearly finished with book eleven, with 50 letters in each book. Currently I have two books in print and seven more on CD.

 

Many have contacted me and told me that these letters have encouraged them. I am so thankful that our God can take our sorrows and change them around in a healing process that helps another. That is truly the heart of God.

 

Love your God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength and love your neighbor as yourself. I hope you too will be encouraged with God’s gentle words of love to you.   

 


Hello Everyone,

God gave me this letter yesterday (02/24/2007). I really thought it was just for me. But, today I feel impressed to send it out as part of book eleven. So, here is another love letter to you all – not just for me J.

Love, Theresa

 

Psalm 1 NKJV

 

1    Blessed is the man

Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,

Nor stands in the path of sinners,

Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;

2    But his delight is in the law of the Lord,

And in His law he meditates day and night.

3    He shall be like a tree

Planted by the rivers of water,

That brings forth its fruit in its season,

Whose leaf also shall not wither;

And whatever he does shall prosper.

4    The ungodly are not so,

But are like the chaff which the wind drives away.

5    Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment,

Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.

6    For the Lord knows the way of the righteous,

But the way of the ungodly shall perish.

  

Letter 517

 

The tides are turning, My love, now I bring in what I have ebbed out. I have the power to do all things. These things had to be, My love, for a part of the world still had a string it could pull. I have snapped the chord and made you walk in total submission to Me. I have protected you from the chords that have tried to wrap themselves around you. I separated you for a season. This was no accident. I have protected you, unentangled you, and spun you into Me. I spin My chords in and around you and I have fastened them with My Hand. The chords I have that hold you tightly to Me cannot be snapped or broken. I can send you now for you are ready to help My entangled ones. I give you all My kindness and love to help you. You are Mine. I have sealed you with My kiss. I have bound you to Me and set you free – go bind My people unto Me. I am sending them to you and I send you to them for there is much work for you to do. Rest when I send you to the one who has your heart, and let My love replenish you in this great fight. It is not soon, My love – it is now – it is here – you are ready. Come – fly higher with Me.

 


2.27/2007 Love letter

1 Samuel 25 NLT

 

40When the servants of David had come to Abigail at Carmel, they spoke to her saying, “David sent us to you, to ask you to become his wife.”

41Then she arose, bowed her face to the earth, and said, “Here is your maidservant, a servant to wash the feet of the servants of my lord.” 

 

1 Kings 18 NLT

 

41Then Elijah said to Ahab, “Go up, eat and drink; for there is the sound of abundance of rain.” 42So Ahab went up to eat and drink. And Elijah went up to the top of Carmel; then he bowed down on the ground, and put his face between his knees, 43and said to his servant, “Go up now, look toward the sea.”

So he went up and looked, and said, “There is nothing.” And seven times he said, “Go again.”

44Then it came to pass the seventh time, that he said, “There is a cloud, as small as a man’s hand, rising out of the sea!” So he said, “Go up, say to Ahab, ‘Prepare your chariot, and go down before the rain stops you.’”

45Now it happened in the meantime that the sky became black with clouds and wind, and there was a heavy rain. So Ahab rode away and went to Jezreel. 46Then the hand of the Lord came upon Elijah; and he girded up his loins and ran ahead of Ahab to the entrance of Jezreel.

 

 

Letter 518

 

My love is tender, My love is strong, My love endures, My love has a song. I sing over you in My great love and I rejoice in your love for Me. I rest My love upon your face – oh how you shine for Me. You have tasted the bitter – but now it is sweet – your beauty has come forth from the evil one’s ash heap. Praise My Name for you have come forth and you clung to Me, My love. I Am Your Rock, Your Solid Rock who is your steadfast love. You are protected in My great love, I hold you tight in Me. Stand tall for Me, My forgiven one, and boldly come to Me for those I send you on your path toward eternity. I give you My Yes and My Amen – so be it done in Me. I give you power in My Great Name and great responsibility. Hold on to My Words deep within your heart and let them grow deep in you. Refresh yourself in My cool fresh streams and let My breezes blow. I give you times of refreshing and I tend to each wound you receive. Come walk in My healing and perfect love and rest your cares in Me. I Am Mighty and I Am Strong and I come forth in all My Splendor to rescue you, My love. You have given Me your tender heart and I have made you strong. You have given Me your mind and I control it all day long. You know My love, My tender ways, and you sing a brand new song – for My love has reached inside of you and saved you from all wrongs. You are My beloved and I rest My love in you. Fairest of all flowers, spring forth inside of Me and let Me behold your beauty – for I created you for Me.

 


Two new letters from book two:

 

Psalm 119 NKJV

25 My soul clings to the dust;

Revive me according to Your word.

26 I have declared my ways, and You answered me;

Teach me Your statutes.

27 Make me understand the way of Your precepts;

So shall I meditate on Your wonderful works.

28 My soul melts from heaviness;

Strengthen me according to Your word.

29 Remove from me the way of lying,

And grant me Your law graciously.

30 I have chosen the way of truth;

Your judgments I have laid before me.

31 I cling to Your testimonies;

O Lord, do not put me to shame!

32 I will run the course of Your commandments,

For You shall enlarge my heart.

 

Letter Fifty-two

 

Your heart was breaking that day. You did not know the plans I had for you. I sent you My chosen one to bring you relief. Your spirit was full of anguish, full of despair, full of sorrow. I came to you, oh precious one, and gave you a refreshing drink from My waters. Oh one that I love, it was not time. But I was with you. I was watching over you closely. I never took My eyes off of you. I have always protected you from the evil one. I have great plans in store for you. For you love Me completely and trust Me solely and depend on Me for your every breath. Oh how I have longed for this day with you. Oh how I have waited and watched over you. I created you for this time. My great peace rests on you – for you know My voice. You recognize Me – oh – you recognize Me! I sing to you My love – I rejoice over you, mighty warrior! I Am Your God who sings to you! Oh hear Me sing My love songs to you! I Am Your God who loves you so.


Psalm 119 NKJV

49 Remember the word to Your servant,

Upon which You have caused me to hope.

50 This is my comfort in my affliction,

For Your word has given me life.

51 The proud have me in great derision,

Yet I do not turn aside from Your law.

52 I remembered Your judgments of old, O Lord,

And have comforted myself.

53 Indignation has taken hold of me

Because of the wicked, who forsake Your law.

54 Your statutes have been my songs

In the house of my pilgrimage.

55 I remember Your name in the night, O Lord,

And I keep Your law.

56 This has become mine,

Because I kept Your precepts.

 

Letter Fifty-five

 

You lay open your heart before Me. You come to Me with your requests. I answer each one. I do not turn away from any request. I am always at work answering you. My ways are different from your ways. My timing is perfect, precious one. I answer you with much love and caring. Do not be frustrated in serving Me. For I see you loving Me. I see you obeying My every command. My Word is true – do not doubt, mighty warrior! I am blessing you and I am at work among you. Keep your eyes on only Me, My love, My treasure – for you cannot do this without Me. You cannot survive without Me. You cannot live in peace and joy apart from Me. Do not be discouraged, one that I love. I am leading you. I am guiding you. I am in control of your every thought. Listen to My words of love to you. I sing My blessings over you – for I rejoice in you with much joy! Oh how I rejoice over you. You please Me, mighty warrior. Never doubt – never forget – I am here – I am with you – I am at work among you. Bare open your heart before Me and watch what I can do! See Me work in the hearts of those who adore Me! Trust only Me, precious one. I Am The Truth. I Am Your Only Way. Remain in Me – for I long to give you more!

 


 

Reading "Love Letters From God" was a very intimate experience for me.  It reminded me of reading "Song of Solomon," in that I was overwhelmed by the depth of the declarations of love He shares with His bride.  They are so personal, you wonder if you should even be reading them.  Then you realize; "Wow! God is directing these  to me!" 

 

You sense God's presence and you feel loved, affirmed and courageous. After reading each letter, I felt a renewed sense of purpose, a desire to lavish God's love on everyone in my path.

They are a delicacy, made to be pondered, savored.

 

God's work can be arduous and it may sometimes seem thankless. But these love letters are truly a taste of His living water, His daily bread.

 

If "Love Letters From God" is a peek into the mind of God, I can't wait to meet our "Holy Father who art in Heaven."

 

Hallowed be His name!

This book speaks to the community of believers, both men and women regardless of their title. In fact, anyone, who calls themselves a Christian, will find hope and comfort in these letters from their Heavenly Father. Theresa has captured His words of encouragement to all his children, whether they are in the valley, on the mountaintop, or somewhere in between. They provide not only encouragement, but also the steps and yes, orders, to strengthen the relationship between God and his children; between a warrior and his general. Whether I feel like the mighty warrior on the front lines or in the background needing a time of rest, these letters help give me comfort and restoration.

A note from the artist

When Theresa asked me to illustrate the cover of this book (book 1), she explained to me how she studied the Bible and then wrote her impressions of what God was saying to her. When she did this, the notes came out as love letters. The words “my mighty warriors” kept coming to mind as how God might address his people. At that point, I knew the painting I wanted to put on the cover. Mighty warriors made me think of my own pastor and his wife Montelle. I kept thinking of the people in the church who do spiritual battle for the rest of us. The mightiest warriors are probably the people we normally may not think of in those terms. The mightiest warriors, the ones with the highest rank and the most ribbons in God’s army, could be some of those with the least physical power here on earth. Therefore, I would like to dedicate the cover of this book to one of my spiritual Heroines, Montelle Hardwick.
