The questionable scenes in our lives

By Dave Henning / May 16, 2021

Broken heart and raised hands – incompatible?

By Dave Henning / May 15, 2021

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 […]

The cold shoulder – giving it to God

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.”- […]

By Dave Henning / May 6, 2021

“Don’t devalue the power of twenty-four hours! There’s no standing still in God’s kingdom.  Either we’re gaining ground or losing it.  Whatever we don’t count, we discount.  If you don’t win the day, guess what?  You lose the day!”- Mark Batterson Mark Batterson concludes Chapter 12 of Win the Day as he observes that most […]
