Be patient through dry spells

By Dave Henning / May 11, 2020

“Stand tall * Reach for the sky * Be patient through dry spells * Conserve your resources * Think long term * Wait for your time to bloom * Stay sharp!”- Advice from a Saguaro “Oh give thanks to the LORD, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever!  Let the redeemed of […]


Numbing out our pain – many varieties

By Dave Henning / May 10, 2020

“Numbing out our pain comes in so many ways; we don’t even realize we’re doing it.  Numbness slowly invades our life and we become addicts to the quick fix.  This is one of the craftiest ways the enemy attempts to break us down.  He doesn’t want us to find hope.”- Meredith McDaniel “So the Egyptians […]


Until we hit rock bottom – why wait?

By Dave Henning / May 9, 2020

“Why do we wait until we hit rock bottom before we allow others to enter into our mess?  Maybe it’s because we believe a lie that says we must keep all the plates spinning or there might be something wrong with us.  But when it all falls apart, we are left lonely and isolated, longing […]


Push the limits and play God

By Dave Henning / May 8, 2020

“We push the limits and we play God.  The same evil one lurks and feeds us lies, trapping us in perpetual cycles of pain.  Somewhere along the way we’ve started to believe that our own stories of brokenness define who we are.”- Meredith McDaniel “When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was […]


The stillness of surrender – rest comes

By Dave Henning / May 7, 2020

“Rest comes in the stillness of surrender, when we relax and realize we cannot hold it together.  Opening our hands to what Jesus has for us in the moment versus what we think we need brings peace.  When we learn to live in abundance instead of scarcity, a calm comes over us.”- Meredith McDaniel “Take […]


Disconnecting from how we really feel

By Dave Henning / May 6, 2020

“Disconnecting from how we really feel in the moment and trying to push back our emotions works at first.  But like a buoy in the sea, those emotions bound back up and wreak havoc in our heart.  Compulsively, we bury the pain.”- Meredith McDaniel “He that lacks time to mourn, lacks time to mend.”- Sir […]


Our earthly longings begin to fade

By Dave Henning / May 5, 2020

“Our earthly longings begin to fade when we realize how precious life is.  We simply cannot fill the hole in our hearts that we are born with, no matter how hard we try.”- Meredith McDaniel Then the LORD said to Moses,”I will rain down bread from heaven for you.  The people are to go out […]


Our false self – a cheapened version of God’s best

By Dave Henning / May 4, 2020

“Every day we tend to fall into living out of our false self, a cheapened version of God’s best for us.  We think we know best and when life surprises us we grow bitter.  When we don’t get what we want, we flail and indulge in what we know brings only a temporary fix to […]


Unraveling souls – pattern of fear, anxiety

By Dave Henning / May 3, 2020

“I have discovered a consistent pattern of fear and anxiety unraveling souls amid the loss and disappointment that we experience when life is different than we expect.  I have found that the longing persists, and pain can be relentless when we become blind to the goodness right before us.  Our aching trumps our ability to […]


Blame ourselves for our predicament

By Dave Henning / May 2, 2020

“At some point we might blame ourselves for the way life has ended up.  We think, If I had just done this differently, I wouldn’t be in this mess.  Sometimes we blame others for the heartaches we feel, and other times we blame God.  Many days the blame is scattered among all three.”- Meredith McDaniel […]


The ebb and flow – full life found

By Dave Henning / May 1, 2020

“Full life, the kind we all keep trying to unearth, is found right here, in the ebb and flow.”- Meredith McDaniel “And he rained down on them manna to eat and gave t hem the grain of heaven.  Man ate of the bread of angels; he sent them food in abundance. . . .  And […]
