When I read James Michener’s Alaska I decided that though I have a very low tolerance for cold, I was going to Alaska. Actually Joyce made the decision as Charles The Great schedules a yearly tour. Our plans are for our 50th Anniversary, in July 14; early, but it snows in August.
George Worthy stated in his Worthy Brief the following:
“Too often we remember the hurt, replaying it over and over again in our minds. Forgiveness is not something we do just once. It is something we must reaffirm every day. Whenever a hurtful memory comes up, remember the Eskimo word Issu-magi-jou-jun-nai-ner-mik, and say, ‘“I can't think about it anymore. It's in God's hands.’”
The Eskimo combination is on target concerning forgiveness and you can be sure I will have it in my follow up book to Outrageous Forgiveness In 30 Days. No, I do not know just how to pronounce the Eskimo word, but I sure understand the meaning. This is essentially what God is saying about our sin in several places, including Hebrews 10:17, “And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.”
I personally find comfort in knowing that God is not walking around heaven thinking about the sins of Larry Lilly. Neither should I walk around the earth thinking about them. They are gone and not to be permitted to dwell in our conscience memory.
“Thy sins be forgiven…” Jesus Mark 2:5
