• “When we forget and seek for stars, show us Thy wounds, Thy scars.” – Amy Carmichael

Determined by Choices by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 11/30/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: We didn’t choose all of our circumstances.

“I didn’t ask to be born into my family. I certainly didn’t ask for them to treat me that way.”

Nancy: But we do have a choice about how we respond to life’s circumstances.

”Aww, it’s time that I forgive mom and dad.”

Nancy: All of us are affected by our circumstances, but we don’t have to be controlled by them.

If our happiness and well-being depends on what happens to us, we’ll always see ourselves as victims.

But the fact is the outcome of our lives is not determined by what happens to us but by how we respond to what happens to us.

You may feel trapped because of the wounds inflicted by someone else. But you can find freedom by choosing to respond to those people with grace and forgiveness.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “Many do not recognize the fact as they ought, that Satan has got men fast asleep in sin and that it is his great device to keep them so. He does not care what we do if he can do that. We may sing songs about the sweet by and by, preach sermons and say prayers until doomsday, and he will never concern himself about us, if we don’t wake anybody up. But if we awake the sleeping sinner he will gnash on us with his teeth. This is our work – to wake people up.” – Catherine Booth
