• “My soul remained in a kind of heavenly elysium. So far as I am capable of making a comparison, I think that what I felt each minute, during the continuance of the whole time, was worth more than all the outward comfort and pleasure, which I had enjoyed in my whole life put together. It was a pure delight, which fed and satisfied the soul. It was peasure, without the least sting, or any interruption. It was a sweetness, which my soul was lost in. It seemed to be all that my feeble frame could sustain, of that fulness of joy, which is felt by those, who behold the face of Christ, and share his love in the heavenly world.” – Sarah Edwards, wife of Jonathan Edwards

Unforgiveness in My Heart by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 10/11/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: It’s possible to live with unforgiveness for so long that we become blind to its presence.

“I don’t hold any grudges. I’m good.”

Nancy: Have you ever been hurt? Has anyone lied to you?

“Yeah, and I wouldn’t mind if something bad happened to them.”

Nancy: Have you ever been treated unfairly by an employer?

“Every time I think about it, I still feel angry.”

Nancy: Maybe you’ve been cheated in a business deal.

“I really want to get back at them!”

Nancy: Or perhaps you’ve been slandered or falsely accused?

“I can thank God for every situation—except that one.”

Nancy: If you respond to past hurts with those kinds of statements, maybe you haven’t truly forgiven. But you can. God is willing to forgive us for so much, and He can give us the strength to forgive others. Would you choose to release those who have hurt you?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “I never felt such an entire emptiness of self-love, or any regard to any private, selfish interest of my own. It seemed to me, that I had entirely done with myself. I felt that the opinions of the world concerning me were nothing, and that I had no more to do with any outward interest of my own, than with that of a person whom I never saw. The glory of God seemed to be all, and in all, and to swallow up every wish and desire of my heart” – Sarah Edwards, wife of Jonathan Edwards

Verse of the Day

No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it. — 1 Corinthians 10:13 (NKJV)
