Utilize the strength of stillness

By Dave Henning / July 16, 2022

“When you don’t still, you react.  When you don’t, first and foremost, purpose to utilize the strength of stillness — there’s no way to pay attention to who God is, or to your location, or to what your soul deeply wants. . . .  Where there’s no cruciform, truly reaching toward the one true God […]

Work through it (resistance)

By Dave Henning / February 20, 2022

“You don’t have to go out and look for resistance.  It will find you soon enough!  My advice?  Don’t look for a work-around, work through it. . . .  The obstacle is not the enemy; the obstacle is the way.  In fact, harder is better! – Mark Batterson (emphasis author) “When Pharaoh finally let the […]

Thin places – heaven and earth seem to touch

By Dave Henning / September 17, 2020

“The Celtic Christians referred to these kings of moments — where heaven and earth seem to touch — as thin places.  Natural and supernatural worlds collide.  Creation meets Creator.  Sin meets grace.  Routine meets the Wild Goose.”- Mark Batterson “When the LORD saw that he had gone over to look, God called to him from […]

By Dave Henning / May 31, 2020

“Full life consists of both peace and pain.  It’s hard to have one without the other.  We don’t crave peace until we feel pain.  We don’t know how to define pain unless we have peace.   They are in extreme opposition, yet they happen to coexist in this place that we call life here on earth.”- […]

Don’t forget to remember

By Dave Henning / December 27, 2015

As Max Lucado begins Chapter 6 of Glory Days, he remarks that, for a book about military conquests, Joshua really skimps on battle details.  We don’t know the military details because the emphasis in Joshua is not on physical battles, but on a spiritual one.  Therefore, the book of Joshua isn’t about claiming land for […]

By Dave Henning / August 3, 2015
