• “In case any are puzzled by the different translations from which I draw strength and help and delight, it is like this: In studying any object with the microscope we use different lenses and turn the mirror in various ways; each change brings out some new wonder and beauty. So it is for those who are not Greek or Hebrew scholars, and who use the work of scholars to open the meaning of the exhaustible Word–the Bible is richer than any single version can fully show.” – Amy Carmichael

The Start of the Process by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 05/25/11

“It will be a long time to work through this, but some day I think I might be able to forgive.”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: When you’ve been hurt, finding healing may involve a process. The problem is that a lot of people think they have to wait until the process is over before they choose to forgive.

“I think at some point God could lead me to forgive my dad.”

Nancy: They think that healing comes first, then forgiveness. Let me suggest that the opposite is true. The healing process begins with forgiveness. You can choose, by God’s grace, to forgive in a moment of time. Then you can allow God to give you grace to heal from that pain and even restore the relationship.

Would you like to be in the process of healing from the hurts of your past? Why not begin that process today by choosing to forgive?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “Genuine revival will not be popular with everyone…it will divide…between those who want to build their own kingdom and those who want to build the Kingdom of God, between those who are attached to their own ideas and those who are committed to the Word of God” – Nancy DeMoss
