In a new book, "Through the Eyes of a Lion: Facing Impossible Pain, Finding Incredible Power", author Lusko challenges one to live everyday not just "to survive" but to live with fire and passion. This starts when you go beyond your earthly eyes - learn to look at life and your circumstances through the eyes of Jesus - the eyes of a Lion! Elsewhere, Lusko preached: "Jesus was crucified on a Friday and rose on a Sunday, and Saturday was the time of trial for His disciples. A promise had been given but not fulfilled yet. The question is, how do we live on "Saturday"?".

Quote: "It’s a radical, provocative idea: We’re not entitled to get offended or stay angry. The idea of our own “righteous anger” is a myth. It is the number one problem in our societies today and, as Dallas Willard says, Christians have not been taught out of it.... "
Movie "Unbroken" is about the amazing story of Louis Zamperini (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louis_Zamperini) who was able to forgive (by God's grace) his former captors/enemies who gravely tortured him in prison!
"Zamperini survived the war, married Cynthia Applewhite, but was constantly haunted with nightmares from his time in the prison camp. Falling into alcoholism, his marriage was on the verge of ending, until his wife became a born-again Christian at a Billy Graham crusade. Through her prodding, she convinced Zamperini to attend the crusade where an internal struggle eventually broke him and brought him to his knees at the cross of Christ. Through his relationship with Christ, he was able to forgive his captors and tormentors."
