A good friend of mine has posted on Abortion from a man’s perspective, responsibility, and seeking to prevent the reasons that women would do this. Its refreshing to see men take their place, own what is theirs, and want to provide and protect their families. Men I encourage you to take a look at these posts found here. Women , I encourage you to also read, and be encouraged by what God is doing.
What are your thoughts? Do men have anything at all to do with this? Can they make a difference? As these men take their place to make a difference, Women…its ultimately your choice.
Father God, i lift up our country to you. We have been silent while the slayings of innocent life is being condoned. You have knit together each one of those babies in the wombs of those women, you have a plan we can not fathom. At the same time you are not surprised by all this, and you knew we would make such terrible choices. Praising you for the way you are raising up the men, showing them how to make a difference, and ultimately giving women hope. That is so like you to take a terrible situation and make it glorious. Your Princess who is elated to see you working in this area

Isaac and Rebekah have twins after trying for 20 years! I am amazed with how God has a thing for making babies where the woman is barren. He did it with Sarah, then again with Rebekah, fast forward to the new testament…again with Elizabeth (mother of John the baptist) and then the ultimate conception with Mary a virgin. (just alittle of how my brain ran on.. 😆 )
Esau and Jacob. Two completely different types of men, one a hunter, and one a home body. Interesting in just that. The fact that Jacob was grasping his brothers heel at birth was no mistake in the story. The struggle between them started before birth, and carried on much of their life.
We have parents here favoring one or the other. Please don’t forget that in all their bad choices, God hand picked them to be the family line of HIS son! yep, back to looking at the heart, and knowing the plans HE has.
GOD doesn’t play favorites, no one is more popular or more worthy, more beautiful, or more wealthy, or has a brighter future, none of this matters to HIM, He adores all HIS children, and sees them equally. I love that! Pshhh! the world needs to get behind us!
Ephesians 6:9 MSG Masters, it’s the same with you. No abuse, please, and no threats. You and your servants are both under the same Master in heaven. He makes no distinction between you and them (Ephesians 6:9MSG).
As I read through this study, so many things are stirred, and brought to mind…God’s plan always works, HE selects people who have made bad choices, HE shows how strong HIS hand is to make that plan happen, and the shadow of HIS redemption plan is all over the old testament. Amazing!
Who in this section interested you and why?
My daughter and her husband came to visit last night, and brought us a present.
and this is what was inside….
a baby! God is so good to us, i am so happy for them, and happy for me too! Babies are a gift from God, what a treasure!
Still…my baby is having a baby…boggles my little brain…
I believe that Babies are just that Babies at the time of conception. The Bible states that God knit us together in the womb, with a plan and a purpose. I just came from Tam’s Inprogress , she has a powerful post today about Babies, aborted, miscarried… so sad how as a people we can be divided on this and call one a fetus and one a baby. Then curse one and bless the other.
I am believing that the babies i have miscarried are in heaven with a loving God. I believe HE had a plan for that miscarried child even if its to be with HIM and spared from the cruel world we call home. Maybe to teach us to trust HIM, lean on HIM, but not to pretend that it didn’t happen. I do not agree with abortion, but i do know that some of us were not taught the wrong in it, and have been filled with the knowlege that its just a fetus, and i have the right to decide whats best for me. This thinking is a lie, straight from the pit of hell..some of us bought it.
I know where alot of you stand on the issues of abortion. I have one question for those of you who are unforgiving to the women who has had abortions. “Does the blood of Jesus wash away all sin, or just some?” So many are covered by the blood of Jesus, the old is gone the new is come..They belong to heaven, their sin has been removed as far as the east is from the west, by our Creator. Who can limit HIM?
If you can please go read the post that inspired my heart to write today, Inprogress (love her, she is my sister in Christ, and very dear friend)
