Did you see this?

Bobbie Cutts, Jr. was given 57 years this week for murdering his girlfriend, Jessie Davis, and unborn daughter. At his sentencing trial the victim's family was allowed to speak. The testimonies were heart wrenching. I ached for the sisters who spoke about Jessie's son, Blake, wondering where his mommy was. The victims were angry and struggling with unforgiveness. Then Jessie's mom got up to speak. She told Cutts she knew her daughter was with the Lord. She told him she served a big who heals and restores. Not wanting to let her life be filled with anger/hatred and because she desired to raise Blake to love his daddy, Jessie's mother said she forgave Bobbie. She said she prayed he would come to know the Lord and then she dropped a bomb shell. She actually asked the judge for leniency.
I just started crying when I heard her words. Talk about sharing the Gospel. I thought of the song, "This Little Light of Mine...I am gonna let it shine...won't let Satan blow it out...I am going to let it shine." On national TV, Jessie's mother was a shining light of God's love for the whole world. The whole world!!! Romans 8:28 says God can make all things for good for those who love Him. Even though Jessie is with our heavenly father...I just wonder how many people came to know Jesus because her mother was willing to let Jesus shine through her?

Question to you: Could you have forgiven Bobbie Cutts?
