Your story of redemption – a divine weapon

By Dave Henning / May 27, 2021

“Your story of redemption — your testimony — has so much power that it is in the same sentence with ‘the blood of the Lamb.’  No wonder the devil wants us to keep our stories buried in the  shallow graves of bitterness, resentment, and shame. . . .  Your story is a divine weapon that […]

The devil sings you the song of shame

By Dave Henning / May 25, 2021

“The devil sings you the song of shame to keep you from having a better story.  To keep you hidden. . . . keep you quiet.  To snuff out your potential.  It’s a quiet epidemic that sickens God’s people.  The refusal to forgive ourselves locks us up in the shackles of shame and then h […]

To step under a cloud of shame

By Dave Henning / May 24, 2021

“To refuse God’s forgiveness is to step under a cloud of shame, which is a place God never intended us to be.  Refusing to forgive ourselves and living in shame are one and the same.  Just as forgiving others sets us free from the hate place, forgiving ourselves sets us free from the shame place.”- […]

Replowing the soil of our wounds

By Dave Henning / May 22, 2021

“Some of us have been plowing and replowing the soil of our wounds far too long.  We’ve been . . . going over the same ground and stirring up the same dirt into a giant dust bowl of pain and regret.  But there comes a point when it is time to stop plowing and start […]

Picking at the scab of past pain

By Dave Henning / May 21, 2021

“When we keep picking at the scab of past pain, refusing to allow the wound to heal, we will become bitter.  And bitterness spawns other undesirable emotions and actions.  Look at the words Paul tethered to bitterness: rage, anger, brawling, slander, malice.   A bitter root will produce bitter fruit.  It has no choice.”- Sharon Jaynes […]

Uncharted territory – living without the past

By Dave Henning / May 20, 2021

“However painful the past may have been, it can also feel more stable than the uncharted territory of living without it.  Sometimes we prefer to live in the uncertainty of dysfunction rather than embrace the uncertainty of change.  At that point we can become so attached to our wounds that they become part of who […]

Difficult times – is God aloof?

By Dave Henning / May 18, 2021

“When we go through difficult times, it is easy to think God is aloof.  We ask, ‘Why me?’ and feel pretty sure we’re not going to get an answer.  But even though we might not get the answer we’re looking for, we can be sure of this — God is always working behind the scenes.  […]
