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 […]


The wise builder digs deep

By Dave Henning / May 18, 2023

“The essence of coming to [Jesus] goes to the core of your being.  A strong foundation means you’ve got to go all the way in and all the way down.  The wise builder digs as deep as he needs in order to get to the rock.  So when you show up, be ready to deal […]


Keep pushing through distraction

By Dave Henning / May 17, 2023

“Not every time will be magical; you are digging through the dirt and looking for rock, not floating on clouds.  Not one time that you show up to be with Jesus is worthless to him; keep pushing through distraction. . . .  When you show up repeatedly, the distractions will lessen.  Keep showing up.”- Alli […]


Presence is sacrifice

By Dave Henning / May 16, 2023

“Presence is love because presence is sacrifice.  When you show up somewhere, you’ve paid for it with your time. . . .  Our connection to Jesus operates in the same way.  If you want a life that feels connected to God and grounded in Christ, you’re going to have to show up.  And showing up […]


Internal tug-of-war: rejoice!

By Dave Henning / May 15, 2023

“When you feel the battle of an internal tug-of-war, rejoice!  If the Holy Spirit wasn’t at work in you and around you, you’d have no such conflict.  You’d just . . . keep your own plans and go about your day. . . .  The Holy Spirit will always advocate for you to practice the […]


The rock of your life – Jesus

By Dave Henning / May 14, 2023

“The meaning [of Luke 6:47-49] is obvious: Jesus is inviting you to actually obey his teaching, and in doing so, put your life on the only foundation that will stand for all eternity.  Jesus can be the rock of your life, but you’ll actually have to do what he says.  But the good news is […]


Speed or comfort or convenience?

By Dave Henning / May 13, 2023

“No matter where the crowds were from in Israel, Jesus’s words still rang true: no one escaped the impact of the rains. . . .  This is exactly what Jesus wanted every ear in the crowd to walk away understanding: the consequences for choosing speed or comfort or convenience in their lives were exactly the […]


Rising waters – tide rolling in

By Dave Henning / May 12, 2023

“Even though trouble is inevitable, collapse is not.  The rising waters will create instability in your life. . . .  That’s a guarantee.  When they do, your foundation is either there or it is not. . . .  The time for digging for the rock is now.  The time to look down is now.  You […]


Cracks in the foundation

By Dave Henning / May 11, 2023

“I always thought I was on solid ground, right up until my life collapsed.  I had cracks in the foundation of my life, and I really didn’t see them.  That’s the thing about foundations: no one cares about them when everything’s fine. . . .  Cracks in the foundation are silent and don’t seem to […]
