Nancy Leigh DeMoss: My friend Marcia experienced a lot of hurt growing up with an alcoholic father. When God changed her life, she realized she had sinned in response to her father’s bad choices.
“I at that point wrote a letter to my father and sent it to him asking his forgiveness for all that I had done against him. So when I finally got a hold of him, I said, ‘Dad, I need to know if you got that letter I sent you.’
“And he said, ‘Yes, Marcia. I got the letter, and I need to ask your forgiveness. You’re not the one that needs to be asking me for forgiveness.’
“But I said, ‘Dad, I need to know that you forgive me for what I’ve done against you.’
“He said, ‘Yes, I’ve forgiven you.’ And I said, ‘Daddy, I’ve already forgiven you. And God will forgive you to if you allow Him.’”
Nancy: In a short time Marcia saw the fruit of her forgiveness.
“He told me that he had decided to make a change in his life and turn his life over to Christ.”
Nancy: Do you need to ask for someone’s forgiveness? God may do amazing things through the process.
