• “Restlessness and impatience change nothing except our peace and joy. Peace does not dwell in outward things, but in the heart prepared to wait trustfully and quietly on Him who has all things safely in His hands.” – Elisabeth Elliot

Cindy’s Story by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 07/06/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: By the time Cindy came to know the Lord, her teenage kids were out of control and her relationship with her husband was rocky. But she determined to focus on God’s plan rather than on her pain. She wrote to me and said:

Cindy: I believe He wants to use me to be a testimony and a light to my family.

Nancy: Cindy’s husband kicked their daughter out of the house to live on the streets. Her sons were both dishonorably discharged from the military and spent time in prison. But she kept her focus in the right place.

Cindy: It would be so easy to just walk away and go to some island somewhere, but God has chosen me to be where I am, to be a testimony to my husband and children. So I say, “Yes, Lord, whatever You want.”

Nancy: Are you saying, “Yes, Lord,” in whatever circumstance you’re in?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
