Through every heartache to home

By Dave Henning / June 28, 2022

“Redemption is never the end but a means to the ultimate end: Adoption.  Attachment.  Salvation by God is ultimately for attachment to God.  Everything on the way, or in the way, is making a way to be soul-attached to the One who is the Way, who can do nothing less than carry you through every […]


Bypass the hard roads?

By Dave Henning / June 27, 2022

“Turns out you can only find the way through when you look both back and forward — and believe that no matter what direction you’re looking, nobody gets to bypass the hard roads, that this handful of five tried-and-true words are you most honest compass: ‘ And it came to pass.’ “- Ann Voskamp “Fully […]


Some kind of fruitfulness

By Dave Henning / June 26, 2022

“When you yada-know the kindness of God, you can know there will be some kind of fruitfulness.  Intimacy with God bears fruit for God.  Intimate God-experience births God-obedience .  Know the Way and you know the Way.”- Ann Voskamp “Let us press on to [yada] acknowledge him.  As surely as the sun rises, he will […]


Stay close enough to touch Him

By Dave Henning / June 25, 2022

“Stand back from God, like He’s only some holy smoking mountain, and you can only know about God.  To know this God you will have to stay close enough to touch Him.  Close enough to touch, to trace every word, every line, from His Word. . . .  Then, and only then, after you’ve touched […]


The essence of happiness = self-forgetfulness

By Dave Henning / June 24, 2022

“Self-forgetfulness is the essence of happiness.  A diminished sense of self can grow a greater sense of connection. . . .  You’re in the zone of happiness — only when you leave the zone of self.”- Ann Voskamp “The knowledge of God is very far from the love of God.”- Blaise Pascal “Now we look […]


The pulse that keeps love alive

By Dave Henning / June 23, 2022

“God is love, but if we get it turned around and make being loved into our god, we get lost in self.  Death of self is always the pulse that keeps love alive.”- Ann Voskamp “But whoever is united with the lord is one with him in spirit.”- 2 Corinthians 6:17 (NIV) Ann Voskamp concludes […]


A fairytale dream come true?

By Dave Henning / June 22, 2022

“What if one way seems like a fairytale dream come true — and another way is fair and true?  There is a way that looks right — and another way that is right. . . .  There is a way that seems right to the senses that leads nowhere good for the soul.”- Ann Voskamp […]


Chosenness = wish fulfillment?

By Dave Henning / June 21, 2022

“Chosenness doesn’t mean you get wish fulfillment, but that you get hesed-attachment.  Because wish fulfillment doesn’t ultimately fulfill like hesed-attachment fills us, with communion that begins to heal trauma. . . .  This is the way of hesed; this is the way our Father heals our trauma.  He will make a way through to what […]


The art of the turn = life

By Dave Henning / June 19, 2022

“Life is the art of the turn. . . .  The whole of life turns on the turn. . . .  Turn and look for how hesed happens now.  Turn and find the delight of God, who we have not right to expect anything from, giving you everything you need for this moment, for nothing […]


Your chosenness destroys all aloneness

By Dave Henning / June 18, 2022

“To be chosen is the ultimate dream, communion with the ultimate destination, and you don’t have to keep looking for a way, because God is looking for you, to be with you, and your chosenness destroys all aloneness.  It can look like we are lost on the way — but if we are with Someone […]


Walking back to the right road

By Dave Henning / June 17, 2022

“We all want progress, but if you’re on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.”- C. S. Lewis “Return to me, for I have redeemed you.”- Isaiah 44:22 (ESV) In Chapter 2 (“The Art […]


The fear of fully feeling

By Dave Henning / June 16, 2022

“Like Adam and Eve, the temptation is to flee.  To cover who I am and how this feels because I’d rather wander lost than sit with the fear of fully feeling, the fear of being transparent and known, only to experience the flooding shame of rejection and abandonment. . . .  When you hide from […]
