Express unconditional love – freely given

By Dave Henning / October 4, 2021

“In my opinions, we express unconditional love only when we acknowledge that we are the recipients of that brand of love from God.  Freely we have received, and freely we must give.  We must forget forever the word deserve in association with love.”- Dr. Charles F. Stanley In Chapter 19 (“A Need for You to […]


Uplifting moments = success?

By Dave Henning / October 3, 2021

“Success is not based on how you feel or on the uplifting moments when you receive rewards, recognition, or overwhelming responses from others.  Success is to be found in the way you live day in and day out.  It is to be found as you pursue what God calls you to do and to be.”- […]


A daily grind – just going through?

By Dave Henning / October 2, 2021

“We may think that we are just going through a daily grind, but we are not.  That so-called daily grind is leading us to a place and position where God can bless us and use us in ways that we would never imagine.”- Dr. Charles F. Stanley “Make me know your ways, O LORD, teach […]

The ultimate measure of friends

By Dave Henning / September 30, 2021

“The ultimate measure of friends is where they stand in times of challenge and controversy.  That being the case, apart from adversity of some kind, we would never know who our faithful friends really are.  In the same way, we will never know in a personal way the faithfulness of Christ apart from adversity.  Without […]


Some classes more appealing than others

By Dave Henning / September 29, 2021

“God has us in school.  He is in the process of teaching us about . . . His faithfulness, His goodness, His compassion, and His holiness.  Just like any other school, some classes are more appealing than others.  And if we are honest, Adversity 101 is not one of our favorite classes.  But it is […]


Maturing as Christians – marginal interest?

By Dave Henning / September 28, 2021

“Men or women who are only marginally interested in maturing as Christians will have a difficult time with adversity.   Their tendency will be to blame God and become bitter.  Instead of seeing adversity as something God is trying to do for them, they will see it as something He is doing to them.  It’s all […]


God hurts when you hurt – regardless

Stanley “When Jesus saw [Mary] weeping, and the Jews who had come along with her also weeping, he was […]


The issues that entangle us

By Dave Henning / September 26, 2021

“For the most part, we are the ones who determine how long we will be anxious. . . .  Too often, however, we fail to deal with the issues that entangle us, and we allow worry and anxiety to settle permanently in our souls.  The result is that we lose our peace. . . .  […]


Confuse concern with anxiety?

By Dave Henning / September 25, 2021

“We must be careful not to confuse concern with anxiety.  It is normal for a Christian to have deep concerns.  Concern motivates us to intercede and to take godly actions toward meeting the needs of others.  Concern, yes!  Anxiety, no! . . .  Concern involves wanting to see things done well so that God receives […]


The passing nature of troubles

By Dave Henning / September 24, 2021

“The passing nature of troubles is something Jesus calls us to recognize.  His challenge is to endure to persevere, to grow, and to overcome. . . .  Jesus knows that God permits things to happen in our lives only for a certain period of time and for a particular reason.”- Dr. Charles F. Stanley Dr. […]


The foundation for living in God’s peace

By Dave Henning / September 23, 2021

“The foundation for living in God’s peace is faith — an active, confident trust in His presence and power to sustain and comfort you — which frees you from fear and anxiety, no matter what the circumstances you face.”- Dr. Charles F. Stanley In Chapter 9 (“Why We Lose Our Peace”) of Can You Still […]
