• “Lord, I give up all my own plans and purposes, all my own desires and hopes, and accept Thy will for my life. I give myself, my life, my all utterly to Thee to be Thine forever. Fill me and seal me with Thy Holy Spirit. Use me as Thou wilt, work out Thy whole will in my life at any cost, now and forever.” – Betty Scott Stam, 20th Century Martyr

A Record of Repentance by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 08/02

“I felt like this kind-of robot Christian. You know, [stilted] looking like a Christian. But I totally shut God out of my life. I know that it all started with some hurts that I just never really dealt with.”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: We’ve all been wounded by others. Hurt and pain are inevitable. Of course those hurts affect our lives, but they have no power to control who we become. The outcome of our lives is determined by our response to hurt.

When you’re wounded, you can respond like a debt collector—trying to keep the other person locked in a kind of prison. The problem is, you’ll end up in bondage yourself. Or, by God’s grace, you can choose to forgive. And forgiveness will set you free from bitterness and anger.

Would you choose to begin the process of forgiveness today?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
