The waves of life – consume us?

By Dave Henning / May 23, 2020

“Sometimes it feels like the waves are going to consume us, doesn’t it?  Like they just keep crashing and life becomes more than we can handle.  It is in those moments when we are most like the Israelites, thinking our safety and security are up to us.  This is an alarming spot to land in […]


Holy people break down – own light fails

By Dave Henning / May 22, 2020

“This is where so many holy people break down . . . .  As soon as they reach the point where they can no longer see the way and guide themselves by their own light, they refuse to go any further. . . .  It is in the darkness that we find true liberty.  It […]


A recipe for disaster – drudge through life

By Dave Henning / May 21, 2020

“Choosing to simply drudge through these days can become a recipe for disaster.  We become filled with stress, anxiety, and desperation.  All we feel invades our soul, and when the longing persists, it points us inward.”- Meredith McDaniel “By day the LORD went ahead of them in a pillar of cloud to guide them on […]


The aerial view – only God has it

By Dave Henning / May 20, 2020

“God has the aerial view.  He sees what is around every bend in your life, and he goes before us. . . .  if we really sit back and consider that this could be true, trusting that God sees what’s ahead of us, we could start to find the peace and rest that we’ve been […]


Our vices – own them and name them

By Dave Henning / May 19, 2020

“I’ve found that once we own and name our vices, we can unearth the role that they play in pointing us to our Redeemer and refining us. . . .  We can learn slowly over time how to best grow as we glean wisdom from what would otherwise paralyze us.”- Meredith McDaniel In Chapter 8 […]


Patterns that persist in our own life

By Dave Henning / May 18, 2020

“Once we become aware of the patterns that persist in our own life, it’s as if blinders have been removed.  We can start to see why we act the way we do.  Our eyes see more clearly, and we have the choice of being transformed by God’s grace through the renewing of our mind.”- Meredith […]


Communally alive – tribe by tribe

By Dave Henning / May 17, 2020

“The Israelites had escaped the control of Pharaoh and now fled into the desert tribe by tribe.  Not one by one in isolation, but together, side by side, communally, men, women, and children.”- Meredith McDaniel “All the Israelites did exactly as God commanded Moses and Aaron.  That very day God brought the Israelites out of […]


Ancient roots – standing in ancestor’s shoes

By Dave Henning / May 16, 2020

“Sometimes standing in the shoes of those who have gone before us tethers us to our ancient roots and gives us fresh eyes to see that our stories are not so different from theirs.  The stories of Scripture remind us that what we battle is our humanity, not just our own personal suffering or circumstances.”- […]


A higher and deeper calling from God

By Dave Henning / May 15, 2020

“But what happens when God calls you higher and deeper out of his great love for you?  God saw Moses.  He knew the ugliness in Moses’s story, yet he still called Moses to follow him.  Moses needed God’s might power to enable him for the task at hand.  We do too.  This calling is a […]


Deliverance stories – God uses them

By Dave Henning / May 14, 2020

“It isn’t always easy to surrender our plans, but it’s incredible to see what unfolds when we have faith.  God uses our stories of deliverance and freedom to point to his mighty power.”- Meredith McDaniel “But Moses pleaded to the LORD, ‘I am not very good with words.  I never have been, and I’m not […]


Mindlessly lift heavy bricks

By Dave Henning / May 13, 2020

“God made us uniquely in his image, and he doesn’t desire for us to mindlessly lift heavy bricks and break our backs all day long.  Jesus didn’t come so that we might continue carrying burdens.  He came that we might have life to the full and that we might find rest in him.  He did […]


Intentionally look up and look around

By Dave Henning / May 12, 2020

“By choosing to intentionally look for God’s provision in your story, you are also making the choice to ‘look up and look around,’ as my pastor Michael Flake always says.  It would be easy to become a navel gazer, just putting your head down and focusing on your own stuff.  And while there can be […]
