Crystal clear – God sees it all

By Dave Henning / March 17, 2021

“God sees it all crystal clear.  He’s never unsure or afraid or intimidated by the gaps.  He allows missing pieces so that we don’t have to do it all on our own.  This is where His provision fits in.  He always sees the shape of the missing pieces and gives us a portion of Himself, […]


Amazon Prime deliveries = prayer?

By Dave Henning / March 16, 2021

“I’ve looked at prayers like Amazon Prime deliveries.  I want what’s delivered to look like what I expected and to arrive in record time. . . .  Then my prayers become orders I place, the answers as cheap as products, and the sender nothing more that a far-removed entity I give little thought to until […]


Hope is the melody of the future

By Dave Henning / March 15, 2021

“Hope is the melody of the future.  Faith is dancing to that melody right now.”- Lysa TerKeurst “Very truly I tell you, you will weep and mourn while the world rejoices.  You will grieve, but your grief will turn to joy. . . .  Now is your time of grief, but I will see you […]


Stabbing pain or reassuring fact?

By Dave Henning / March 14, 2021

“I know I needed to pass through the storm and get to where I could be reminded that God is faithful.  When ‘God loves me’ feels like a stabbing pain rather than a reassuring fact, I’ve learned I must go where I can be reminded that today isn’t the whole story.  Today is part of […]


Feelings of disillusionment left unattended

By Dave Henning / March 13, 2021

Feelings of disillusionment left unattended start to seem like facts about God when our circumstances don’t turn like we believed they would. . . .  But then . . . I learned God loves us too much to answer our prayers at any other time than the right time.”- Lysa TerKeurst As Lysa TerKeurst moves […]


Promise on standby – or life support?

By Dave Henning / March 12, 2021

“Have you ever heard someone say they are just trying to ‘keep hope alive?’  It sounds more like a patient on life support than a promise on standby.  The more I felt hope was a risk rather than an assurance, the more I became afraid of the word rather than comforted by it.”- Lysa TerKeurst […]


Efforts of control or efforts of compassion?

By Dave Henning / March 11, 2021

“I want them (friends, co-workers, family members) saved, but I am not their Savior. . . .  They need Jesus.  They need self-control.  So I shift from efforts of control to efforts of compassion.  Compassion lets me love the person, empathize with their pain, and acknowledge their side of things, even if I don’t agree […]


The consequences of their own choices

By Dave Henning / March 10, 2021

“It truly is one of the most heartbreaking moments of anyone’s life when they have to release a loved one to the consequences of their own choices.  But it’s also the only chance that either of you have to get better.  And it’s the only shot you have at staying healthy enough to walk the […]


An epic defeat of the enemy

By Dave Henning / March 9, 2021

“It’s often when I don’t want to live out God’s Word with another person that doing what God says is an epic defeat of the enemy.  There is nothing more powerful than a person living out what God’s Word teaches.”- Lysa TerKeurst “Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your […]


Sin always masquerades as fun and games

By Dave Henning / March 8, 2021

“Sin always masquerades as fun and games.  But pull back the curtain of the deceived human heart, and what you’ll find hiding there will drive you to your knees to pray for that person.  And maybe that’s the very reason God instructs us to pray for our enemies.”- Lysa TerKeurst “If possible, so far as […]


Grieving is dreaming in reverse

By Dave Henning / March 7, 2021

“Grieving is dreaming in reverse. . . .  But when you are grieving something or someone that was taken away, you wish you could go back in time.  You dream in reverse.  Instead of hoping for what will one day be, you long for a more innocent time when you lived more unaware of tragedy.  […]


Emotional healing – choose new way of thinking

By Dave Henning / March 6, 2021

“Emotional healing is not so much a level to reach as it is a way of thinking you choose.  It’s admitting you might be thinking about this wrong.  Is there another way?  There’s always another way.  A better place to park. . . .  A way forward and onward, a future to find.  We can […]
