      Consistent, redundant, methodical = Ant Power

      By Dave Henning / November 17, 2019

      “Consistent, redundant, methodical — and life-saving.  The ants remind us what can be achieved when we relentlessly chip away at the task before us.  Remember, faithfulness isn’t flashy.  The dynamic of Ant Power hinges on repetition.”- Jeff Manion “Ants are creatures of little strength, yet they store up their food in the summer.”- Proverbs 30:25 […]

              Unnecessary additions to your life

              By Dave Henning / November 13, 2019

              “Be done with unnecessary additions to your life in an effort to ruthlessly eliminate hurry.  Our souls will not find rest if we’re caught up in the hustle and racing from place to place. . . .  Rather, God is found and souls are restored in the stillness.”- Bob Merritt “Our struggle is not against […]


                Finding the new life of love, joy, and peace

                By Dave Henning / November 12, 2019

                “Finding the new life of love, joy, and peace the Bible promises requires less obsession and more devotion.  I can’t possibly overstate that truth. . . .  obsessions cannot do what we want them to; they can’t deliver us from the old life and move us into the new.  We have to put God at […]


                  Obsessions occupy space in your soul

                  By Dave Henning / November 11, 2019

                  ” . . . obsessions occupy space in your soul that belongs to God.  If these preoccupations squeeze God out, you’ll carry an emptiness inside that’ll never go away. . . .  When everything else but God saturates my soul, it gets sick because it’s starving for God’s love.”- Bob Merritt “With my whole being, […]


                    Nobody escapes the fire – nobody!

                    By Dave Henning / November 10, 2019

                    “To quote Judith Viorst, ‘If I were in charge of the world / You wouldn’t have lonely.’  But we do have lonely, and nobody escapes the fire.  Nobody!”- Bob Merritt “In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have to suffer grief in all kinds of trials.  These have […]


                      The endgame – not lives of fun and comfort

                      By Dave Henning / November 9, 2019

                      “But God doesn’t call us to lives of fun or even comfort.  These things aren’t bad, but they aren’t the endgame.  Rather, God calls us to lives of sacrifice, of taking up our crosses daily, and of following Him. . . .  Sacrifice is not always fun or entertaining, but it’s fulfilling.  It’s purposeful.”- Bob […]


                        Crosses and sacrifices – where things die

                        By Dave Henning / November 8, 2019

                        “Scripture calls us to crosses and sacrifices, but crosses and sacrifices tend to be where things die.  I don’t like that.  I want to avoid that.”- Bob Merritt “Therefore I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy, and pleasing to God — this […]

                          By Dave Henning / November 7, 2019

                          “We don’t like to be broken, and we work hard at maintaining the façade that we have it all together.  But if we’re honest, part of what life does is break us.  We get betrayed, hurt, stepped on, and shutout.  We suffer heartaches and losses.  And some days it feels a lot like despair.”- Bob […]


                            Naked truth – the need to confront

                            By Dave Henning / November 6, 2019

                            “If we don’t confront the naked truth, we’ll spend too much time and money on things that remain here on earth and not enough on the one thing that goes with us.  Because ultimately the only thing you take with you into heaven is other people.”- Bob Merritt As Bob Merritt continues Chapter 10 of […]
