• “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

Live in Peace by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 02/01/12

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: It seems like everybody is suing everybody else. That makes one husband’s choice seem all the more extraordinary.

During a routine procedure, a doctor’s mistake cost him the life of his wife. In the days that followed, he promised to “bring down that hospital!” He demanded a meeting with administrators and vowed to sue them for everything they had.

On the way to the meeting, this husband realized that he was heading into a dungeon of anger and bitterness and to be free, he’d have to do what God had done for him.

When he got to the hospital, he walked directly to the doctor who had operated on his wife. He reached out his hand and said, “The only way I’m going to be able to live with any peace the remainder of my life is to forgive you.”

Are you harboring any anger or bitterness? Would you choose to forgive as God has forgiven you?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
