Review: Sing Over Me

If you are reading this review on the Sabbath, then I would like to wish you a Sabbath filled with the confidence that He who is in us is greater than he who is in the world (1 John 4:4).


This week’s review is for the documentary, Sing Over Me.


Description

Since the early 1990s, Christians all over the world have been singing the songs of modern-day psalmist Dennis Jernigan, including “You Are My All in All,” “Thank You, Lord!” and “When I Fell in Love with You.” His music and ministry, sparked by his lifelong struggle with homosexuality and the healing that came through his relationship with Jesus Christ, have led him on a remarkable journey of redemption.


Review

Sing Over Me, began with a powerful verse from Zephaniah: 

The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save;

he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love;

he will exult over you with loud singing. Zephaniah 3:17


This verse from Zephaniah was the foundation of the testimony from this documentary.  The words, “he will quiet you by his love”, spoke volumes for me about what God’s grace has done in the life of Dennis Jernigan.


Satan may step into our lives and cause sheer chaos and grief for a time, but when God intervenes, Satan loses his hold on us. When we get to know who we are, in Christ, we have access to the power of God’s grace, which cannot be contended with.  


Dennis mentioned Psalm 32:7 - You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance.  This spoke to me as this is a Psalm I often sing and love verse 7, as God gives me songs of delivery wherever I am.  I can sing His word and feel the power of His grace over me.  


God surrounded Dennis with songs of deliverance through his piano music, through the years of chaos and grief, and beyond. 


Back to who we are - Dennis talks about how his identity was attached to the wrong things for years.  This made me think of  verses from Ephesians 1 that the film, Overcomer, reminded me of.  Powerful verses that tell us who we are and the promises we have access to.


Ephesians 1:1-14 says that, through Christ, we are:

Blessed, chosen, holy, predestined to adoption, accepted, redeemed, forgiven, obtained as an inheritance, saved and sealed with the Holy Spirit, the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, through Jesus Christ’s return.


Dennis speaks in great detail about how things changed dramatically when he was shown his true identity.  Praise the Lord!


Dennis also references Psalm 107:1-2

Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good!

For His mercy endures forever.

2 Let the redeemed of the Lord say so,

Whom He has redeemed from the hand of the enemy,


Dennis’ testimony is a powerful, living proof that God can and does redeem His children wherever they are, thanks to the sacrifice of His Son, Jesus Christ, was willing to make. 


Dennis had inspirational words, right until the credits started to roll.  As I was not familiar with his music, I looked him up on Spotify, shortly after watching the film.  I have been listening to his music all evening.  Praise the Lord!


Revelation 12:17 says, And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.


I really admire what Dennis says at the end of the film, about being determined to continue to share his testimony, no matter what.  I thank the Lord for His continued protection and guidance over Dennis, his family and his ministry.


I watched, Sing Over Me, on the Vision Video website


Thank you for reading this review.  Until next time - peace be with you.
