Signature move – practice in action

By Dave Henning / May 30, 2023

“You were made to practice from wherever you are not.  You have a signature move, but God wants to use every little thing about you and every opportunity in your life for practicing your faith and building a life on him.”- Alli Patterson “One of those listening was a woman from the city of Thyatira […]


Religious checklist of dos and don’ts?

By Dave Henning / May 29, 2023

“God’s goal is always that we expand our ability to move in all kinds of ways, but he also recognizes our individuality and uniqueness.  Putting the Word of God into practice isn’t a religious checklist of dos and don’ts.  It happens through everyday moments . . . in the context of a relationships.”- Alli Patterson […]


Authentic attempts to respond

By Dave Henning / May 28, 2023

“There’s a joy that comes when you practice the Word of God.  Whether it all turns out right, that joy is from a Father who is pleased with authentic attempts to respond to his words. . . .  Even imperfect practice creates a relationship with God.  It shows him your belief in his presence, his […]


Practice = action + obedience

By Dave Henning / May 27, 2023

“The final rhythm of a well-built life is practice.   Practicing isn’t simply about action; it’s about obedience. . . .  A house that lasts isn’t just built by hard work; it’s built on actions of obedience to a lord.  Without the practice of acting on what you hear, your house will be a house of […]


Turn up the volume – Bible

By Dave Henning / May 26, 2023

“To turn up the volume on the Word of God, you need a plan.  You’re not going to accidentally hear more of the Bible in your everyday life.  Everything important to you has some sort of plan that goes with it. . . .  If there was one thing my [marathon] training taught me, it’s […]


Constant humming – hum of shoulds

By Dave Henning / May 25, 2023

“As it gets a lot quieter, you will probably notice a constant humming.  The hum can get loud enough to prevent you from clarity, hearing the words of Jesus for you.  It’s your list of shoulds.  The hum of shoulds causes you to overlook the need to hear his words and pushes us too soon […]


The tipping point – a cacophony

By Dave Henning / May 24, 2023

“The tipping point . . . the point where there is so much noise, so loud, for so long, that you don’t hear anything at all.  The cacophony of sounds blends together and none of it means anything. . . .  You can’t hear your own thoughts — let alone God.  There are just too […]


Hear second – the hinge

By Dave Henning / May 23, 2023

“Come first.  Hear second.  The second rhythm on the way to a well-built life is ‘Hear my words.’  It is the instruction sandwiched between the other two rhythms: it is the hinge.  We come to Jesus in order to hear his words of life, and we must hear something from him to practice following him.”- […]


The unbreakable rock – grace

By Dave Henning / May 22, 2023

“The wise builder kneels at the cross for grace because it is the unbreakable rock you can stand back up on.  Coming to Jesus means you can build a life stronger and better than any you could create on your own. . . .  Kneeling also happens to put you in the perfect position to […]


Kneel before Jesus – cede control

By Dave Henning / May 21, 2023

“To give up your own plan is to kneel before Jesus.  It might be your plan for today . . . or for the big picture directions you thought your life was going in.  Big or small, your plan is your plan.  Coming to Jesus means giving up the way you’d do it if you […]


Open curiosity – coming to Jesus

By Dave Henning / May 20, 2023

“Coming to Jesus in curiosity means having a willingness to suspend what you previously thought you knew and to consider what might be possible with God. . . . Coming to God through open curiosity is considering whether Jesus could be the key to explaining or experiencing something you didn’t even think possible.”- Alli Patterson […]


Crumbling places – digging past

By Dave Henning / May 19, 2023

“Come to me means seeing and being honest about what’s going on in our hearts. . . .  We get straight into the crumbling places with our shovels, hoping there’s a way to firmer ground.  It starts with being willing to look at the places we’d rather not see.”- Alli Patterson “I will give you […]
