Always mercy. Always.

‘…For all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still.’*

I certainly do not deserve Mercy. We comprehend that through sin we understand and appreciate the Mercy of God. So merciful is He that he gave us His only Son. How precious Life is and we regard it as trite and expendable.

The anguish of the Post Abortive Woman is real. We walk around in a stale and institutional like world that sees sin as an Olympic sport rather than the filth that it is. The Mercy I received was more than I ever deserved or even hoped for. But God is good. He gave us the first step to Mercy – repent, and forgive: ‘For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.’**

It’s so hard forgiving them…the guy that hands you the money, whoever drives you to the clinic, the friends and family that talked you into it, even the doctor…but I HAD to forgive and seek God’s Mercy or I would never heal. But many post abortive women don’t know about repentance, forgiveness, mercy or grace…‘How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching?’***

What about the Church?

The silence in the pews speaks volumes; Christians don’t enter the fight against abortion or exhibit compassion to the Post Abortive Woman. Where is the forgiveness? Where is the mercy? Church teaches us about Grace, but what about the mercy it takes to attain Grace? Just as Israel forsook God, such does the Church toward the post abortive women that are hurting.

‘…For all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still.’*

About 43% of all women, 45 years old and under are Post Abortive.

Abortion can be stopped – one baby at a time, one mom at a time, one heart at a time. Mercy.
