Communally alive – tribe by tribe

By Dave Henning / May 17, 2020

“The Israelites had escaped the control of Pharaoh and now fled into the desert tribe by tribe.  Not one by one in isolation, but together, side by side, communally, men, women, and children.”- Meredith McDaniel “All the Israelites did exactly as God commanded Moses and Aaron.  That very day God brought the Israelites out of […]

Ancient roots – standing in ancestor’s shoes

By Dave Henning / May 16, 2020

“Sometimes standing in the shoes of those who have gone before us tethers us to our ancient roots and gives us fresh eyes to see that our stories are not so different from theirs.  The stories of Scripture remind us that what we battle is our humanity, not just our own personal suffering or circumstances.”- […]

A higher and deeper calling from God

By Dave Henning / May 15, 2020

“But what happens when God calls you higher and deeper out of his great love for you?  God saw Moses.  He knew the ugliness in Moses’s story, yet he still called Moses to follow him.  Moses needed God’s might power to enable him for the task at hand.  We do too.  This calling is a […]

Deliverance stories – God uses them

By Dave Henning / May 14, 2020

Mindlessly lift heavy bricks

By Dave Henning / May 13, 2020

“God made us uniquely in his image, and he doesn’t desire for us to mindlessly lift heavy bricks and break our backs all day long.  Jesus didn’t come so that we might continue carrying burdens.  He came that we might have life to the full and that we might find rest in him.  He did […]

Intentionally look up and look around

By Dave Henning / May 12, 2020

“By choosing to intentionally look for God’s provision in your story, you are also making the choice to ‘look up and look around,’ as my pastor Michael Flake always says.  It would be easy to become a navel gazer, just putting your head down and focusing on your own stuff.  And while there can be […]

Numbing out our pain – many varieties

By Dave Henning / May 10, 2020

“Numbing out our pain comes in so many ways; we don’t even realize we’re doing it.  Numbness slowly invades our life and we become addicts to the quick fix.  This is one of the craftiest ways the enemy attempts to break us down.  He doesn’t want us to find hope.”- Meredith McDaniel “So the Egyptians […]

Until we hit rock bottom – why wait?

By Dave Henning / May 9, 2020

“Why do we wait until we hit rock bottom before we allow others to enter into our mess?  Maybe it’s because we believe a lie that says we must keep all the plates spinning or there might be something wrong with us.  But when it all falls apart, we are left lonely and isolated, longing […]

Push the limits and play God

By Dave Henning / May 8, 2020

“We push the limits and we play God.  The same evil one lurks and feeds us lies, trapping us in perpetual cycles of pain.  Somewhere along the way we’ve started to believe that our own stories of brokenness define who we are.”- Meredith McDaniel “When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was […]

The stillness of surrender – rest comes

By Dave Henning / May 7, 2020

“Rest comes in the stillness of surrender, when we relax and realize we cannot hold it together.  Opening our hands to what Jesus has for us in the moment versus what we think we need brings peace.  When we learn to live in abundance instead of scarcity, a calm comes over us.”- Meredith McDaniel “Take […]

Disconnecting from how we really feel

By Dave Henning / May 6, 2020

“Disconnecting from how we really feel in the moment and trying to push back our emotions works at first.  But like a buoy in the sea, those emotions bound back up and wreak havoc in our heart.  Compulsively, we bury the pain.”- Meredith McDaniel “He that lacks time to mourn, lacks time to mend.”- Sir […]

Our earthly longings begin to fade

By Dave Henning / May 5, 2020

“Our earthly longings begin to fade when we realize how precious life is.  We simply cannot fill the hole in our hearts that we are born with, no matter how hard we try.”- Meredith McDaniel Then the LORD said to Moses,”I will rain down bread from heaven for you.  The people are to go out […]
