“F*** you, lady! This is my third abortion!” I suppose she said that with the best of intentions? Of course not; clearly she was angry with her decision to be at the abortion facility AGAIN for doing the exact same thing AGAIN expecting different results AGAIN. All too often women come back to abort again because they cannot break the cycle. Another woman said she has six kids already even though the abortion was for her young daughter – apparently this girl had the same conversation with her mom that I had with mine 35 years ago…that she isn’t raising anymore kids.
Today there was a little bit of everything; Dad and his daughter [I hope], moms and daughters, some couples and a bunch of young women that came alone. I do believe we had one save, THANK GOD. It troubles me to see women going into the pregnancy center and then right into the abortion facility’s parking lot. I have to wonder if there is a weak link at the center. All I know is that if I had that opportunity 35 years ago for someone to tell me I did not have to kill my baby, I would have a 35 year old child instead of a horrific memory of feeling as though I was raped by my entire family, the system and the abortion facility.
We read Psalms and Scripture, sang songs and danced before the Lord [sorry Lord, lol]. We spoke of the love of God and His mercy AND grace. We tried to speak with pre-abortive women and men telling them to remember that their child is from God, not an accident. We remembered what the Word of God said about the many descendants that their unborn child WILL have if they choose LIFE; if they do not choose LIFE, their child will never know their own descendants that were destined to be born and WITH a purpose specifically just for them:
“I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live.” Deuteronomy 30:19
Then three of us walked the Jericho March around the facility:
“But it came to pass on the seventh day that they rose early, about the dawning of the day, and marched around the city seven times in the same manner. On that day only they marched around the city seven times. And the seventh time it happened, when the priests blew the trumpets, that Joshua said to the people: “Shout, for the Lord has given you the city!…….So the people shouted when the priests blew the trumpets. And it happened when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, and the people shouted with a great shout, that the wall fell down flat. Then the people went up into the city, every man straight before him, and they took the city.” Joshua 6:15-16, 20.
Did the wall of Jericho fall? Not today. BUT IT WILL:
“So the Lord gave to Israel all the land of which He had sworn to give to their fathers, and they took possession of it and dwelt in it. The Lord gave them rest all around, according to all that He had sworn to their fathers. And not a man of all their enemies stood against them; the Lord delivered all their enemies into their hand. Not a word failed of any good thing which the Lord had spoken to the house of Israel. All came to pass.” Joshua 21:43-45
Yes, ALL WILL COME TO PASS.
Pray to end abortion, pray for the soldiers on the sidewalk…pray for MORE soldiers on the sidewalk – like Uncle Sam says, “I WANT YOU!” Come over and help us:
“And a vision appeared to Paul in the night. A man of Macedonia stood and pleaded with him, saying, ‘Come over to Macedonia and help us.’ Now after he had seen the vision, immediately we sought to go to Macedonia, concluding that the Lord had called us to preach the gospel to them.” Act 16:9-10
