    Realize what God has done for us

    By Dave Henning / March 27, 2020

    “God wants to help us get to the place where  — in every area of our lives and hearts — we come to realize what God has done for us is bigger than what others have done to us.  Where what God has said about us is greater than what others have said about us […]


      Knowing our new name – living into a new reality

      By Dave Henning / March 26, 2020

      “Knowing our new name helps us live into a new reality.  No matter what season of life we find ourselves in, God is constantly putting us in a position to be made new.  And that newness God does inside us puts Him on display to the world around us.”- Esther Fleece Allen “Whoever has ears, […]


        Losing sight of our new name

        By Dave Henning / March 25, 2020

        “Losing sight of our new name and settling for what we’ve always been is just another way the enemy tries to rob us of our joy and distract us from claiming our truest identity.  This settling . . . can also be living in a way that doesn’t align with who God says we are.  […]


          Learning our new names – trusting God’s voice

          By Dave Henning / March 24, 2020

          “Learning our new names isn’t always about receiving a divine word through some mystical experience; rather it more often than not is about learning to trust the voice of God that has been speaking over our lives all along. . . .  We will be called many names here on earth, but it’s important to […]


            Known by God and precious – your name

            By Dave Henning / March 22, 2020

            “Your name is known by God.  Even if your earthly name feels random or insignificant, it is precious to God.  He wants you to understand the meaning of your given name, and — even more — He wants to give you a new name and identity.  Are you ready to hear it?”- Esther Fleece Allen […]


              An ice cream truck in your world

              By Dave Henning / March 21, 2020

              ” . . . become the equivalent of an ice cream truck in your world. . . .  Be the person that people are glad to see.  Be the voice people want to hear.  Drive the happiness truck.  And see if you aren’t the one smiling the most.”- Max Lucado “It is more blessed to […]


                The hammock of God’s affection – settle in

                By Dave Henning / March 20, 2020

                “Settle yourself into the hammock of God’s affection.  And as you do, and to the degree you do, you will give that love to others.”- Max Lucado “So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view.  Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer.  Therefore, […]


                  Agape love forgives, offers patience

                  By Dave Henning / March 19, 2020

                  “Agape love writes the check when the balance is low, forgives the mistake when the offense is high, offers patience when stress is abundant, and extends kindness when kindness is rare.  Agape love gives.”- Max Lucado “This is love: not that we loved God, but the He loved us and sent his Son as an […]


                    Applying your undeserved mercy

                    By Dave Henning / March 18, 2020

                    “Forgiveness is the act of applying your undeserved mercy to your undeserved hurts.  You didn’t deserve to be hurt, but neither did you deserve to be forgiven.  Being the recipient that you are of God’s great grace, does it not make sense to give your grace to others?”- Max Lucado “If I then, your Lord […]


                      Basin to counter our Buster

                      By Dave Henning / March 17, 2020

                      “Yes, we each have a Buster, but we also have a basin.  We’ve been wounded, perhaps deeply.  But haven’t we been forgiven preemptively?  Before we knew we needed grace, we were offered it. . . .  The Master takes my container, fills it with cleansing grace, and washes away my sins.  All my betrayals sink […]


                        Buster – we all have one, or two or ten

                        By Dave Henning / March 15, 2020

                        “We all have a Buster.  Or two or ten. . . .  Maybe you’ve moved on.  If not, a question needs to be raised regarding your happiness.  Resentment sucks satisfaction from the soul.  Bitterness consumes it.  Revenge is a monster with a monstrous appetite. . . .  Left unchecked, grudges send us on a downward […]


                          Strugglers – admonish them with truth

                          By Dave Henning / March 14, 2020

                          “Strugglers don’t need our opinions.  They don’t need our philosophies on suffering.  They don’t need someone to distract them with idle conversation . . . They need someone to admonish them with truth.”- Max Lucado “His powerful Word is as sharp as a surgeon’s scalpel, cutting through everything, whether doubt or defense, laying us open […]
