Shame!

Children in the Old Testament were generally held to be a blessing from God. Childless women groaned over their lack of ability to get pregnant. In our present culture, an unborn child can be seen to be an inconvenience that can be destroyed because someone does not wish to interrupt their lifestyle to raise it.

I saw a huge billboard the other day on the side of the road which stated ‘Abortion isĀ  Healthcare and a Right’. The only thing I can say to that is it is not healthcare. Pregnancy is not a disease to be healed. It is a usually a very normal condition. Today with all the new medical advances we have in this country, there are very few pregnancy problems that doctors cannot overcome for the sake of the health of the mother.

If abortion is a right, what about the right to life of the unborn human inside the uterus. Back in 1951 when I was born if abortion had been as accessible as it is now, more than likely I would have been murdered with the rest of the other slaughtered unborn. I was illegitimate and very unwanted. My biological mother was not married to my biological father. If I had been aborted, I would not be sitting here today typing on this computer, my husband would never have known me and my child would never have been born. Why can we not see that we are killing people not clumps of cells!

As a Christian, I cannot help but believe that our churches and our country will have a price to pay if we do not speak out strongly against the wholesale genocide of the unborn. God does not ignore the weak and oppressed people of this world. Children cannot speak out for themselves so much of the time. As adults we are to be their protectors. Shame on us, especially followers of Jesus of Nazareth, if we do not try to do something to protect the unborn children of this world. Jesus fussed at his apostles for trying to stop the little children from coming to him and said we must come to Him like little children. For such is the kingdom of heaven.

You can always give money to a pro-life organization and can easily donate online. Put pressure on our congressmen and senators. It will be the shame of this country and especially the Christian churches if we do not speak out on behalf of the unborn just as it was the shame of the southern churches for not speaking out against slavery. Shame on Us!

Your Day

Dear Lord Jesus, This is your day. All over the world people will be celebrating that the tomb was empty. It’s your resurrection day! Praise God! Thank you for taking my place on that cross. Thank you for giving up your eternal throne of glory to come down here and save all of us from the most powerful to the least of us. Thank you for wanting all of us.

Bless you Lord for the beauty of your face and the beauty of your great heart. Thank you for your great power and authority. Thank you for wanting to give us a new heaven and new earth. We wait in anticipation for the redemption of our bodies also. Again, Lord Jesus thank you. In your holy name I pray Amen!!christasgod2praisegif2

Chewed Up and Spit Out

I was born into this world with no home. I was an orphan, traumatized and abused. I had the hot breath of Satan in my face from the second I popped from the womb. But after 68 years of life and getting to know God and Christ better, I have come to believe in some ways it was a blessing. When life chewed me up and spit me out and left me empty, it personally pushed me to pursue a heavenly Father more than if I had had a great childhood. I believe that may be one of the reasons God allows suffering, to make us more needy and desperate for Himself. When you search for me with all your heart, you will find me.

So even if the whole world turns its back on you, you have a Heavenly Father who adores and passionately loves you. Let the power of Christ and His Spirit fill you up. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Won’t you let Him love you into Paradise before it’s too late?
