• “What is the secret to great living? Entire separation to Christ and devotion to Him. Thus speaks every man and woman whose life has made more than a passing flicker in the spiritual realm. It is the life that has no time for trifling that counts.” – 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.
