    Agape love forgives, offers patience

    By Dave Henning / March 19, 2020

      Buster – we all have one, or two or ten

      By Dave Henning / March 15, 2020

      “We all have a Buster.  Or two or ten. . . .  Maybe you’ve moved on.  If not, a question needs to be raised regarding your happiness.  Resentment sucks satisfaction from the soul.  Bitterness consumes it.  Revenge is a monster with a monstrous appetite. . . .  Left unchecked, grudges send us on a downward […]

        By Dave Henning / September 27, 2019

        “Anger is a natural and common response to painful circumstances. . . .  true lamenting calls for our lousiest, rawest emotions — even the ugly ones.  But anger is usually a secondary emotion, often masking feelings of loneliness, insecurity, shame, abandonment, or sadness.”- Aubrey Sampson “Pay them back for what they deserve, LORD, for what […]

          The inevitable firestorms of life

          By Dave Henning / February 23, 2019

          “We cannot control everything our children experience, but we can influence how they process what life sends their way.  We can teach them to guard against the inevitable firestorms of life. . . .  Intentionally, or unintentionally, on purpose or by accident, we build into our children or take away.”- Andy Stanley In Chapter 19 […]

            The anger that pollutes our hearts

            By Dave Henning / February 13, 2019

            ” . . . when a person discovers he has heart disease, his overriding concern isn’t how he got it, where it came from, or whose fault it is that he has it.  His number one concern is, ‘How do I fix it?’  We should be driven by a similar concern when it comes to […]

              By Dave Henning / February 11, 2019

              “In the shadow of my hurt, forgiveness feels like a decision to reward my enemy.  But in the shadow of the cross, forgiveness is merely a gift from one undeserving soul to another.”- Andy Stanley In Chapter 14 (“Complete the Cycle of Forgiveness”) of Enemies of the Heart, Andy Stanley comments on the deeper meaning […]

                  Arrogance – stiffens the knee, hardens the heart

                  By Dave Henning / October 16, 2018

                  “How do we explain God’s abhorrence of the haughty heart?  Simple.  God resists the proud because the proud resist God.  Arrogance stiffens the knee so it will not kneel, hardens the heart so it will not admit to sin. . . .  Indeed, the arrogant never feel the need for forgiveness.   Pride is the […]
