life is precious

Nothing is covered that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known. Matthew 10:16

This is a hard one to write.

Because of the depths the enemy has swayed humanity to reach new levels of depravity.

This week, news spread that one of the major players in crusading for abortion hasnt been walking their talk.

You heard that right.

You can’t have it both ways, Planned Parenthood.

And God has known your secret from the beginning, and is now exposing it in all its ugly truthfulness.

You can’t convince people that the unborn aren’t of value, then profit from the sale of those same unborn’s parts, and think you can get away with it forever.

When the God of eternity shines His flashlight of truth upon your hidden places, the ugliness becomes displayed for all to see.

The One who planned parenthood from its inception is not standing idly by.

Reaping from abortion violates the sacredness of creation, and horrifies the heart of the Maker of us all with each heartbeat it mercilessly stops.

Make no mistake, abortion is murder.

Not because I say it is, but because He does.

The only hope humanity has is to stop making up rules for ourselves which allow us to do whatever we want, whenever we want to.

We need a standard that is solid, secure and unchanging to help counter the cultural shifting of opinions.

He reminds us He is this standard in His Word….

I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb. Jeremiah 5:1

Psalm 139 reminds us that He not only knows all about us, He knit our very beings together:

For You formed my inward parts;
You knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise You, for I am fearfully & wonderfully made.
Wonderful are Your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from You, when I was being made in secret,
intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in Your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me,
when as yet there was none of them.

God knows the plans He has for each person on this planet…and watching us murder His handiwork, especially when they are still being formed, wounds Him deeply.

Make no mistake, every life is precious to Him. 

All will be held accountable for their part in snuffing a life out, regardless of the circumstances.

What can we do?

Fall to our knees and humble ourselves before our Maker. Ask for His heart for His creation, His handiwork.  Increase our prayer that what the enemy does in secret to harm His people will be brought into the Light, and He will stir us up to act as He leads to make things right again.

Our hope through all of this is found in Him alone, because He never stops loving us, no matter what.

When all we can see is a large organization which has railroaded the unborn to death and doesn’t seem to be running out of steam, God sees it as a small gnat in comparison to Him.

I can tell you that abortion doesn’t just harm the unborn child.  It not only devastates the spirit of the mother, it often has a physical, emotional and mental impact which can take years to work through and overcome. A few who are close to me have ventured down this road.

Our wombs were designed & made to honor the treasure He blesses us with, not allow the enemy to plunder it.

It’s time we speak up about what really matters.  Sisters, your loved ones & friends may have hard choices ahead because of their actions, or the sin forced upon them. Encourage them to seek wise council. Go to a pregnancy center or church which can help support them. Remind them:
-all life is precious
-love can put the needs of another ahead of its own to bring new life into this world
-there are empty arms just longing for a child
-there are blessings which come for those who honor His ways
-they are not alone

For those who have already taken that step and chosen the harder path which has separated them from their child forever on this earth, He still waits to embrace & heal you with His love. Forgiveness, mercy and grace await you.

And one day in Heaven, there will be such a reunion of all these unborn children, fully whole & perfect, with their natural mothers who receive Him.

There will not be a dry eye in the place, especially His.
