Almost every woman I know has had an abortion in her lifetime. I remember being 15 yrs old naive and lost, thought I was pregnant and abortion was the first thing that came to mind. I was prepared to go and get it done.
I ended up not being pregnant. Even in my own mess God saved me from going down a road I knew I would regret, a road that would hurt Him and a road that could have ended in my death. I remember it clearly. I was scared, depressed, young, no money, afraid of peoples thoughts and horrified of my momma and her reaction. I even expressed how I didn’t want to live anymore as I kept the reason why to myself.
You may be feeling these very same emotions, scared, afraid of those “churchy” people who are full of judgment instead of Gods compassion and love. Back then I didn’t know how good God is, that He loved me before I was ever thought of and that I was his princess. Back then I didn’t know to not care about what people think but what God thinks. I didn’t know He would send real people of God into my life that wouldn’t down me but correct and love me. Back then I didn’t know abortion was not and never will be Gods plan. You don’t have to feel what I felt or be depressed because God will take care of you. God uses a man named David to tell us this:
Psalms 139:13-16 “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.”
Wow!! Did you read that? God makes no mistakes:) How many of you know that Prayer is SOOO powerful? Lets pray…
Lord, I thank you that we serve an awesome and mighty God! I ask that you touch the women and young girls today who are thinking about abortion. Lord, we know that life and death is in the power of your hands, not ours, and we also know that when You allow life to be created, it is not by accident. For you foreknew us all and called us into a physical body and then into the body of Christ and into a purpose. Who are we to think we have the right to kill Your purpose, to disrupt your plans, for that child can very well be the next world speaker to bring millions of souls to you God. How selfish of us lord to think our lives are actually about us. Lord, that c
