Oh Father God,
I ask you today to please comfort those who have walked through abortion. You know their heartache, and their story, and you are so merciful to give us all new life. We are all sinners here, and we are desperate for your love and forgiveness. We know that nothing can separate us from your love, and we long to see hearts restored to you. Please let these precious women know that they belong to you, and that you long to heal their hearts. If there is a way that we can help another woman and point them to you, please give us the opportunity, Lord. We long for everyone to see you as you are. We praise you Father for the mighty work you are doing in lives today. We thank you for your Son, and the love He showed us on the cross. Please help us to show that love to others and share the words of life and truth with them.
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
This is the most difficult blog post for me to write. I will do my best and I’ve prayed, so God will help me. The first thing I want to say is, if you are a woman who has felt grief after an abortion and you feel guilty and are unable to find peace in your life, talk with God about it. Don’t think that He is unapproachable because you’ve gone beyond His grace. He weeps with you for the choice you made. He will send comfort to you and in turn you can help others in similar circumstances.
In the Holy Bible, New Testament, book of James, chapter 2 verse 13(b) it says:
MERCY TRIUMPHS OVER JUDGMENT!
This post has nothing to do with judgment! The Bible is clear, it’s not my job to judge anyone, ever.
I thank my heavenly Father every day that my birth mother did not choose to abort me, for obvious reasons. God has a purpose for my life. While it’s true I won’t be a mother or grandmother, I am a wife and there are still some tasks left for me to do down here on the planet. Life is precious. It matters. God thinks it’s a big deal. He gave it to us.
If you find yourself in a situation where you are considering abortion, I would invite you to think about adoption instead. If you are killing an innocent baby because you cannot afford to raise it, then please, let someone else raise it! I know that women want the right to choose and all that, but what about that child’s right to be born? There’s a reason for everything, and you are not the one who gets to decide what that reason is!
I have five babies in heaven along with my parents and a lot of other relatives. I’ll have a really big welcoming committee waiting for me when I get there. I understand how fragile life is. It is something to be celebrated. So on this Sunday, we take some time to celebrate LIFE.
No, not the cereal. Wise guy! Laughter is my defense mechanism. ❤
