Mindfulness over matter – aging

By Dave Henning / May 2, 2021

“Aging, like everything else, is mind over matter!  Ellen Langer would say it’s mindfulness over matter!  Mindfulness is paying attention to the present moment, and it’s one way we wind the clock.  It’s acute awareness of what we’re thinking, what we’re feeling.  And, I might add, awareness of what the Spirit of God is doing […]

Every miracle happens twice!

By Dave Henning / May 1, 2021

“Every miracle happens twice!  The breakthrough always happens in the spiritual realm first.  Then — and only then — does it manifest itself in the physical realm.  God had already delivered Jericho in the spiritual realm; all the Israelites had to do was keep circling for seven days.”- Mark Batterson “The gates of Jericho were […]

Playing the long game – unborn tomorrows

By Dave Henning / April 30, 2021

“Imagining unborn tomorrows is playing the long game, but it involves an immediacy that is quite different from urgency.  Urgency is born of anxiety, while immediacy is born of faith.  Faith is prophetic, but it’s not presumptuous. . . .  Faith plans for tomorrow, but it doesn’t take tomorrow for granted.  It actually lives like […]

Trip wires – our triggers and tendencies

By Dave Henning / April 29, 2021

“We all have triggers and tendencies that serve as trip wires.  We’ve got to cut the rope by cutting those wires.  How?  The best way to break a habit is by establishing a good habit.  When you attempt to establish a new habit, progress is slow. . . .  You’ve got to work hard to […]

The intersection of two theologies

By Dave Henning / April 28, 2021

“We live at the intersection of two theologies, two realities.  God’s faithfulness is pursuing us from the past and God’s sovereignty is bearing down on us from the future.  Look back, and it’s so far so God.  Look ahead, and the best is yet to come.”- Mark Batterson Mark Batterson concludes Chapter 9 of Win […]

The adjacent possible – best unborn tomorrows

By Dave Henning / April 27, 2021

“All that stands between you and your best unborn tomorrows is the adjacent possible. . . .  it’s the elevator between what is and what could be.  It’s the thing that enables us to prayerfully dream bigger dreams — 10-story dreams, 20-story dreams, even 160-story dreams like the Burj Khalifa.”- Mark Batterson As Mark Batterson […]

Imagine unborn tomorrows – cut the rope

By Dave Henning / April 26, 2021

“If you want to imagine unborn tomorrows, you’ve got to cut the rope. . . .  anything less is maintaining the status quo.  You will experience a few falls, a few fails.  But cutting the rope is the way we cut the ribbon on the dreams God has given us.”- Mark Batterson Before moving on […]

God ideas change the course of history

By Dave Henning / April 25, 2021

I’d rather have one God idea than a thousand good ideas.  Good ideas are good, but God ideas change the course of history.  How do you get God ideas?  Prayer is a good place to start.  Praying is a form of dreaming and dreaming is a form of praying.  When you get a God ideas, […]

Making decisions against yourself

By Dave Henning / April 24, 2021

“The best decision you can make for yourself is making decisions against yourself.  It’s disciplining yourself to do the right things day in and day out, week in and week out, year in and year out.  If you pay the price, the payoff will be greater than the sacrifices you made.”- Mark Batterson (emphasis author’s) […]

Kaizen starts with a growth mindset

By Dave Henning / April 23, 2021

“No matter what you do, kaizen is the key.  It starts with a growth mindset.  You’ve got to stay humble, stay hungry.  Your benchmark your progress, but you never really arrive.  In fact, there’s no finish line.  You keep flying the kite a little higher, a little longer.”- Mark Batterson “But I will not drive […]

The creation story – a microcosm

By Dave Henning / April 22, 2021

“The creation story is a microcosm of so many things.  God said, ‘Let there by light,’ and those words are still creating galaxies at the edge of the universe.  If God can do that with just those words, what are we worried about?  We already trust Him for the big things like keeping the planets […]

Success is stewardship, stewardship is success

By Dave Henning / April 21, 2021

“In the grand scheme of things, success is stewardship, and stewardship is success.  Simply put, success is doing the best you can with what you have where you are.  Potential is God’s gift to us, and what we do with it is our gift to God.  That’s the bottom line.”- Mark Batterson (emphasis author’s) As […]
