      Eliminate shame from our relational diet?

      By Dave Henning / May 30, 2020

      “Although it is tempting to hope that we can eliminate shame from our relational diet, it is futile to wish for this.  Our hope is, rather, changing our response to it as we journey together toward God’s kingdom. . . .  As such  . . . we starve [shame] over time, not by avoiding it […]

        Keep a distance from God

        By Dave Henning / May 29, 2020

        “I wonder if our desire to keep a distance from God has less to do with God and more to do with what we carry. . . .  it’s essential to note that even when we withdraw, God lovingly approaches us.  Just as he came down to the level of the Israelites, he meets us […]

          Blind to God’s gifts – focused on pain

          By Dave Henning / May 28, 2020

          “We can be blind to God’s good gifts because we focus on what isn’t working right now and how hopeless we feel in our day-to-day life. . . .  when we are continually focused on the pain we feel, moving out of it doesn’t happen easily.  There are times when we need to sit in […]

            Magic wand – wave it to fix everything?

            By Dave Henning / May 27, 2020

            “The reality is that you and I cannot wave a magic wand and fix all the things we want to.  Some things are just too broken and seem beyond repair.  We cannot do it in our own strength, but we do know One who can bring calm into the chaos.  The circumstances may not change, […]

              Turning over every rock to find relief

              By Dave Henning / May 26, 2020

              “You might be turning over every rock to find some relief.  You might be hungering and thirsting for something that will last in a world where it feels like everything is fleeting.  we all have something we want.  We all hunger.”- Meredith McDaniel (emphasis author’s) Then Moses led Israel from the Red Sea and they […]

                Clear choice – binding darkness or song of hope?

                By Dave Henning / May 25, 2020

                “When it feels like the waves of life are going to consume us, we have a clear choice.  We can look back on our stories and be bound by darkness, letting it take root and defeat us, or we can sing a song of hope that springs us forward in the middle of the mess […]

                  Crave connection – we’re relational beings

                  By Dave Henning / May 24, 2020

                  “We all crave connection.  It’s not something we can escape in this life because of the way God knit us together in our mother’s womb.  We are relational beings, and God gave us those desires. . . .  Longing to be connected to people . . . can be a God-given dream.  Shaming ourselves for […]

                    The idolatry of work

                    By Dave Henning / May 23, 2020

                    As Pastor Timothy Keller concludes Chapter 1 of Every Good Endeavor, he reiterates an idea he presented earlier in the chapter, that many people mistakenly think of work as a curse.  Antithetically, then, something else such as leisure or family becomes the only way to find meaning in life.  Yet, the fact that God rested […]

                          “Choosing to simply drudge through these days can become a recipe for disaster.  We become filled with stress, anxiety, and desperation.  All we feel invades our soul, and when the longing persists, it points us inward.”- Meredith McDaniel “By day the LORD went ahead of them in a pillar of cloud to guide them on […]
