Courageous Birth Mothers-Women Who Love and Give Everything

Monday, May 28th is Memorial Day in the USA.  It’s a time to remember and celebrate the fallen and living veterans who courageously fought, died and live to ensure our country’s freedom.  Their sacrifice means we civilians have the opportunity to live our lives to the fullest, and are able to enjoy the freedoms that our Constitution provides.  Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, the freedom of speech and the right to worship as we wish are just a few of the liberties we have because of our veterans.  I want to thank and salute you.  I send up my prayers for you and your families.

I have numerous readers from other countries, and I want to thank you.  I mentioned Memorial Day not only for those of you in the states reading this blog, but to let the people from other countries know what we celebrate this weekend.  My readers from China, do not have many of the liberties we take for granted.  I think of the Chinese people often and pray for them.  The Chinese government restricts families to one child.  The horrific result of this law is the untold millions of babies, mostly girls, who have been aborted over the past decades.  My heart cries out before the Lord God to end the senseless slaughter of Chinese children because of a government’s hold on citizens who do not have the life and liberty that we do in the USA.  Never mind that when man steps in to control the birth of human life, we mess it up and mess ourselves up beyond all possible imagining.  The Chinese are now dealing with a population completely out of God’s balance with more males than females.  This is a problem that will not be easily fixed without further interference from man.

Women who give up their children for adoption are some of the most courageous women on the earth.  The decision to give their babies life and the chance at a better life and education that the birth mother is not able to give them, at this point in her life’s journey, is an act of great courage and sacrifice for the benefit of her child and the adoptive family.  I thank you and my heart salutes you.  I cannot imagine the agony of that choice, and the years of wondering how they are; are they happy, loved, cared for, what do they look like, all while trying to make a new life for yourself.  The God of all creation knows your sacrifice and has a special blessing for protecting the child He formed in your womb and the great love you showed your child by your “choice.”

I have two children because of two women’s great love and monumental sacrifice.  If I could hold each of you in my arms and bless you, I would.  So, instead, I say thank you to all of you from those of us who love your babies and raise them as our own.  We gave birth in the agony of our waiting hearts, counting on your courage, and we cannot say “thank you,” enough. 

To me, you are as courageous as a veteran facing death under fire, and the protection you gave “our” child was the selflessness of a true mother.

I pray for all of you who have made, or are making, this choice for life as every mother everywhere in the world makes the choice for her children.

God knows who you are.

A Mother Will Do Anything For Her Child

I want to address this post to the women who are considering abortion.  If you can, take hold of the stress, confusion and pain, and make yourself think beyond now and think of the future of the precious life growing inside you.  Think about your future.

All the voices bombarding you, tell you abortion will solve everything for everyone involved and that your life and the life of the man involved will return to normal.  But in reality, the only person who can make the decision is you.  I’m asking you not to listen to anyone telling you abortion is the answer until you’ve found a quiet place, cried out to God and waited a week to give Him a chance to speak to you and intervene in your life and the life of your child.  As a mother, you owe yourself and your child this chance.

Yes, if you’re pregnant, you’re a mother.  Right now.  The baby is just living inside you instead of in your home.  The location does not make your child less of a human being, and does not make you less of a mother.  Think of any pregnant woman you know or have been around; the first thing the doctor does is advise you how to care for your child by caring for yourself.  Don’t drink, smoke, take drugs, have x-rays, make sure you take vitamin supplements, eat right, rest, ect. etc..  You’re the mom, it’s up to you to make sure you do everything you can to protect your baby.  Abortion does not protect your baby, and it does not protect you.  Abortion ends your child’s life and can seriously damage your own.

Women who abort have an 81% chance of experiencing major mental health and addiction issues after aborting.  See my post When God Says.  Abortions can lead to infection, a higher chance of breast cancer and many other health issues, and you may face the possibility of not conceiving  or carrying a child to term when you do decide you want one.

Isaiah 49:15 asks, “Can a woman forget her child?”  I think not.  Abortion will not keep the child and it’s death from your heart or mind.  I know.  I’ve lost two children through miscarriage.  There’s hardly a day I don’t think of them and grief still wells up inside me, and this pain is from miscarriage.  Not a choice I made.  I can’t imagine the heartache a woman must feel when she thinks about her abortion decision.

So, I ask you again.  Please wait.  Go to God, not clinics, friends, boyfriends or anyone else.  Just God.

Father God, I ask in the name of Jesus that You will speak to the hearts and minds of any women who are reading this post who are considering abortion.  I ask that they will cry out to You for help.  Reveal Your heart to them.  Show them how much You love them and quiet the voices around them who are urging them to abort. Quiet their minds and let them hear only Your voice.  You’ve given us free will.  You do not force us to do or say anything we do not want to.  That’s how much You love us.  Holy Spirit, come now and guide the choices being made. Speak life to the mother’s hearts because You love them and their children so much.  Amen.
