By Dave Henning / January 11, 2021

Keep walking and believing in our God

By Dave Henning / January 10, 2021

“The father’s prayer . . . was answered in a manner greater than he had requested.  Yours will be as well.  Perhaps the answer will come this side of heaven.  Perhaps it awaits you on the other side.  Either way, this story (of Jesus healing the official’s son) urges you and me to keep walking […]

Somewhere between Cana and Capernaum?

By Dave Henning / January 9, 2021

“What about you?  Do you find yourself somewhere between Cana and Capernaum?  Like the official, you offered a heartfelt prayer.  You begged Jesus for help.  And, like the official, you didn’t receive the answer in the way you wanted.  Consequently, here you are, doing your best to place one foot in front of the other, […]

By Dave Henning / January 8, 2021

Montage of miracles – God’s got this!

By Dave Henning / January 5, 2021

“John recorded them . . . to urge us to believe in the tender presence and mighty power of Christ.  This montage of miracles proclaims: God’s got this!  Think it’s up to you and you ain’t much?  Hogwash.  God can carry you.  You’re stronger than you think because God is nearer than you know.”- Max […]

Acquainted with the downward spiral?

By Dave Henning / January 3, 2021

“Are you acquainted with the downward spiral?  Convinced that no one cares, that no one can help you, hear you, or heed your call?  If you know the feeling, you aren’t alone.  That raw sense of isolation and powerlessness?  It’s not here to stay.  If you think it’s up to you and you ain’t much […]

By Dave Henning / January 2, 2021

“Since we know the heart of God revealed in the work of Jesus Christ — His cross and life for us — we know that what God gives us will be good.  Not necessarily fun, pleasant, or a walk down easy street, but good nonetheless.  Since He is good, what He gives me to do […]

Jeffrey Leininger […]

By Dave Henning / December 31, 2020

“The reality is, most of our daily interactions . . . have been brought into our lives with little choice on our part.  Each of these can be regarded as callings, people for whom Christ died whose lives have been woven into ours.  It is precisely because most of the relationships we have are not […]
