My heart is heavy for the injustice of babies today. I myself was “advised to terminate three of my pregnancies because of health issues, but because of my faith in Jesus Christ and knowing the truth that a fetus IS a baby, a gift and blessing from God, the decision was easy for me to make. It is not so easy for many women today. Our culture has diluted the truth and made excuses to justify their selfish actions and selfishly based desires. They do not view children as the eternal inheritance they are.
It doesn’t help that we are raised in a system that teaches us not to question authority and that doctors are often, not always, but often unemotional about offering abortion as an alternative to “medicate” or “fix” the “problem.”
I am deeply disturbed today. My heart is heavy.
My prayer is that God would breaks our hearts for what breaks His…
I know that many have made this a “political issue.” And I am not trying to stir up arguments here. I simply cannot sit quietly anymore. We need to rise up, unite and protect those who cannot protect themselves. I am deeply disturbed today. My heart is heavy. My prayer is that God would breaks our hearts for what breaks His…

How can a nation justify killing the innocent and helpless, whom God chose to create?
How dare we think we have that kind of authority to take life! How arrogant, how selfish and prideful. My heart breaks for women who feel they have no support and are contemplating abortion. How my heart aches for the emotional, physical and spiritual trauma they have either experienced already or about to. I have read testimonies of women who have had abortions. It scars their hearts. Let us love these women. Let us support and embrace them. Let’s us offer our lives, our hearts, our homes, our finances, and our efforts to care for orphans… and the mother’s of these orphans. Let’s us bring a message of salvation and love, and let our lives reflect God’s heart.
Today I mourn, but I also have hope because I believe in the power of a mighty, powerful God who is a God of justice. I believe that Jesus and His Word and testimony has the power to change lives and redeem them from the deepest darkest pits.
So today I choose joy, in midst of grief and the sadness of realizing a demoralized society. Today I chose to pray for the spiritual sanctification of our hearts. That we would all take personal responsibility to surrender to the Lord teach us truth and revealing sin in our lives.
In Leaving a Legacy theme:
Let’s not hide this from our children. But rather teach them the realities of sin in this life and help to grow in their hearts a burden for the pain that is in this world. Help them to pray for the young women contemplating abortion, for the government, and for our culture to see babies for what they are in the eyes of God–beautiful gifts.
How does your family engage sanctity of life? What do you do to teach your children? Do you participate in the PRC walk-athons? Pray together?
Look forward to hearing your thoughts!
Please pray with me for our world. What is your story? What breaks your heart?
