Unconditional love and affirmation

By Dave Henning / June 7, 2021

“But one thing is certain: until receiving unconditional love and affirmation, unblessed souls are bound to struggle.  Some, like the younger brother in Jesus’s well-known parable of the prodigal son, run away and waste everything.  Others are like the older brother in the parable who stayed at home, did all the right things that others […]

Embrace the story God has given you

By Dave Henning / June 3, 2021

“Embrace the story God has given you.  Even the parts where you grabbed the pen from his hand and tried to write your own.  Even the parts where someone else burst in uninvited and created chaos.  The scenes we’d rather skip become the redemptive highlights of God’s glory.”- Sharon Jaynes In Chapter 12 (“The Perfect […]


Gift for growing or burden to bear?

By Dave Henning / June 2, 2021

“We’ve all been hurt by life in some form or fashion: no one is immune from suffering.  But rather than view the pain as our burden to bear, what if we considered it a gift for growing?  Healing on the other side of heartbreak is not simply returning to how we were before the rending, […]

By Dave Henning / June 1, 2021

Monogramming the devil’s label?

By Dave Henning / May 31, 2021

By Dave Henning / May 30, 2021

“Satan tried to snuff out Peter’s faith, but it was merely eclipsed for a moment.  This can happen to any of us, and probably will.  Peter fell in the dirt of doubt, but he rose again a few days later. . . .  Perter felt disqualified because of his failure and went back to doing […]

By Dave Henning / May 28, 2021

Your story of redemption – a divine weapon

By Dave Henning / May 27, 2021

“Your story of redemption — your testimony — has so much power that it is in the same sentence with ‘the blood of the Lamb.’  No wonder the devil wants us to keep our stories buried in the  shallow graves of bitterness, resentment, and shame. . . .  Your story is a divine weapon that […]


Fruitful in our suffering – seed in our hands

By Dave Henning / May 26, 2021

“God doesn’t want us to simply forget our suffering.  Healing does not mean forgetting.  He wants us to be fruitful in our suffering.  Suffering can become seed in our hands. . . .  we can choose to sprinkle those seeds as good news of how God brought us through in the well-tilled soil of a […]
