Broken heart and raised hands – incompatible?

By Dave Henning / May 15, 2021

“A broken heart and raised hands are not mutually exclusive; instead they are a sweet offering to the Lord — perhaps the sweetest.  Job was honest with his pain.  He didn’t sugarcoat it, ignore it, or numb it.  Rather, he walked right through it.”- Sharon Jaynes Then Job answered the LORD, “I am unworthy — […]

Common sense – add to God’s truth?

By Dave Henning / May 14, 2021

“Eve got it mostly right.  God never mentioned not touching the fruit, even though that would have been a pretty good idea.  However, we should never add what we consider common sense to God’s truth.  It is true enough standing on its own.”- Sharon Jaynes “You are free to eat from any tree in the […]

Life symbols – overcoming spiritual amnesia

By Dave Henning / May 10, 2021

“The way we overcome spiritual amnesia is by building altars.  What do we put on them?  Life symbols.  Those life symbols don’t just point back to the past; they point to the future.  Our present-tense forth is a function of God’s past-tense faithfulness.”- Mark Batterson “And [David] put [Goliath’s] armor in his tent.”- 1 Samuel […]

Pounding the pavement – seeding the clouds

By Dave Henning / May 9, 2021

“Seeding the clouds isn’t waiting to win the lottery!  It’s pounding the pavement. . . .  making things happen. . . .  We need a holy urgency.  Not the kind that is born of nervousness; the kind that is born of God-given passion.  The kind that comes from a place of rest, an eighth rest.”- […]

Plodding one day at a time – daily habits

By Dave Henning / May 5, 2021

“Imagining unborn tomorrows isn’t just plotting for the distant future.  It’s plodding one day at a time.  It’s putting one foot in front of the other when you don’t feel like doing so.  Life goals have to translate into daily habits!  You have to wind the clock on your dreams every day.”- Mark Batterson “Jonathan […]

By Dave Henning / May 4, 2021

“This ancient hunting technique has a name: persistence hunting.  Humans are slower than the rest of the animal kingdom, but we have one distinct advantage — sweat glands.  The sixth habit — wind the clock — revolves around imagination, and when you combine it with perspiration, you can chase down almost anything! . . .  […]
