• “We say, then, to anyone who is under trial, give Him time to steep the soul in His eternal truth. Go into the open air, look up into the depths of the sky, or out upon the wideness of the sea, or on the strength of the hills that is His also; or, if bound in the body, go forth in the spirit; spirit is not bound. Give Him time and, as surely as dawn follows night, there will break upon the heart a sense of certainty that cannot be shaken.” – Amy Carmichael

Forgiving a Drive By by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 11/28/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: I read about a woman named Regina who ministers with gang members in prison. And what makes that amazing is when you consider that years ago it was gang members who murdered Regina’s twelve-year-old daughter in a random shooting.

How in the world could she be motivated to help these men?

Ten years following the murder, she said, “God has given me the power to say something I never thought I could say—‘I forgive.’”

It seems impossible, doesn’t it? But Scripture says, “As the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.”

Is there someone you need to forgive? Don’t hold on to the hatred one day longer. If Regina could forgive those gang members and if God could forgive your sin, you can let your offender go as well.

Would you choose the pathway of forgiveness today?

  • “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
