God Turned Around the Life of Terry Potts through Shine.FM


 

Mindy’s Story of Forgiveness

My husband is a police officer, and last December he was shot three times while responding to a bank robbery right before Christmas. It was a terrible experience, but God was with us through it all; the suspects were caught, and my husband is fine now. At the time, Matthew West’s song “Forgiveness” had just started to come on the radio. It really spoke to me every time I heard it – especially the lyric “Even when the jury and the judge say you’ve got a right to hold a grudge, it’s the whisper in your ear saying ‘set it free’.” We knew we had no choice but to forgive the robbers, even though they could have killed my husband. Last month, that song came on the radio when we were on the way to court for sentencing for one of the men. It really encouraged me to get in front of the court and forgive the robber, and tell him about Jesus. At the end of court, even though he got a 29 year prison term, we were able to speak to his family who thanked us.
