      Anger- a catalyst for cleansing

      By Dave Henning / June 4, 2012

      T. D. Jakes discusses the emotion of anger in Chapter 5 (“The Power of a Pure Heart”) of Let It Go.  He doesn’t assert that we shouldn’t be angry in the wake of an offense.  Quite the contrary, when we constructively channel anger, it can be “an incredible asset and a powerful catalyst to catharsis.”  […]

        Let It Go

        By Dave Henning / June 2, 2012

         Let It Go (Atria Books, 2012) I believe Bishop T. D. Jakes would agree with Dr. Stephen Viars (Putting Your Past in Its Place) that we need to turn our past struggles into stepping stones for growth in order to move toward healing and hope. In Let It Go,  Bishop Jakes states that our fixation […]

          Four keys to forgiveness

          By Dave Henning / June 2, 2012

          In Chapter 3 of Let It Go, T.D. Jakes describes 4 steps essential to developing an attitude of forgiveness: 1.  Develope self-awareness regarding how you monitor and manage your reactionary thoughts, behaviors, and emotions.  While we can’t control the offenses that come our way, we can control our responses. 2.  Don’t allow your emotions to […]

            “I’d rather fight than switch!”

            By Dave Henning / June 1, 2012

            There was a popular cigarette ad in the 1960’s that featured smokers with a black eye asserting that they’d rather fight for the right to smoke that brand of cigarettes rather than switch to a competitor.  In other words, they’d rather be right, even if it hurt! That type of scenario also can play out […]

              Taking the offensive

              By Dave Henning / May 31, 2012

              In Chapter 2 of Let It Go, Bishop T. D. Jakes shares his realization, gained through a painful personal experience, that “sometimes the greatest opportunities are hidden in the deepest moments of offense.  If you aren’t strong enough to check your emotions, you can miss a great opportunity. . . .” For years after my […]

                Taking offense

                By Dave Henning / May 30, 2012

                T.  D. Jakes (Let It Go) observes that we all have aspirations, hopes, and expectations, regardless of the stage of life we find ourselves.  However, we need to take time to consider what we’ve learned throughout the course of our lives and analyze whether our ‘education’ is working for us or not.  If we don’t, […]

                  The liberating power of forgiveness

                  By Dave Henning / May 29, 2012

                  T.D. Jakes (Let It Go) previously had stated that unforgiveness leaves people stuck in the prison of their past.  He adds that the other danger of unforgiveness is that we become infected by it and have the potential to pass it on to others. The good news, Bishop Jakes tells us, is that just as God […]

                    Forgiveness- a big idea!

                    By Dave Henning / May 27, 2012

                    Bishop T. D. Jakes (Let It Go) posits that forgiveness is a big idea, as opposed to the destructive, small ideas of revenge and anger.  We need to think big thoughts in order to effectively introduce and practice forgiveness so that we can begin to heal. While we have experienced justifiable emotions such as hatred […]

                      Successful transitions

                      By Dave Henning / May 26, 2012

                      In his Introduction to Let It Go, Bishop T. D. Jakes points out that the key to successfully navigating our transitional, desert times is to be intentional.  He asserts: “Success is always intentional.  No one walks across the stage to accept a college degree by accident.  No one crosses the finish line in a marathon […]

                        Max Lucado (A Gentle Thunder) has lots of hummingbirds around his house.  One day a hummingbird flew into his garage through an open door.  However, this bird insisted on trying to exit via a closed window.  Eventually the bird was trapped between two window panes.  Max reached in, grabbed a few feathers, and jerked the […]

                          When my dad resided in the assisted living facility at Harwood Place in Wauwatosa, WI, he frequently could be seen walking the property, both inside and outside.  He often wore a favorite yellow cardigan sweater with one or more of his World War II army medals affixed to it at chest height.  This was so […]

                            By Dave Henning / May 23, 2012

                            When you reflect on your ministry downsizing or position loss, do you perceive yourself as an innocent victim of unchristian actions or behaviors?  Ann Spangler ( The Peace God Promises ) points out that even for people who find no fault in their own hearts, it’s not healthy to take on the role of victim […]
