Good Morning to All!
Before I get into my post, I want to apologize for not getting this post out last night. I tried for two hours to get it posted but for some reason for the last few weeks it has been contrary and wouldn't allow me to post images, and still won't. I have to "publish the post first, then go back in and edit for my pictures. If anyone has an idea of what may be wrong, please let me know so it can be corrected. OK. enough whining, I'm going to publish, and edit for images. Then, on with my post.
(13) For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother's womb, (14) I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well.
(15) My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. (16) Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. and in Your book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them.
(23) Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me, and know my anxieties; (24) And see if there is any wicked way in me, And lead me in the way everlasting.
Psalm 139:13-16, 23-24 NKJV
And the debate rages on. What debate you may ask? When does life begin? People cannot seem to agree whether an embryo is a baby or a "blob of tissue". Yes, to me that description is offensive, but that is what a lot of people think of that precious "seedling" of life.
In my eyes, if a person believes in God and His creation, then how can they not believe that the embryo or fetus is a baby? That to me makes no sense. When someone plants a seed in the ground, do they call it by it's name ( onion, strawberry etc) or do they just say, I'm growing a seed? To me the same applies. When someone is pregnant, do they say I'm having an embryo, no, they say I'm having a baby. This means they KNOW what it is, and to desensitize themselves from the responsibility they don't want to make it a human, which it clearly is according to God's Word.
The Bible makes it quite clear that within the womb is human life and that God is knitting together every cell, and planning a future for each person he creates. For god, life begins at conception, and so does his interaction with us.
I know there is a scripture in the Bible that tells us that God knew us from our mother's womb, and I have read several that refers to that idea, but I for some reason thought there waws a specific scripture that actually said that. Anyway, I will rely on some of my wonderful readers or Pastor Followers to "enlighten me" if you will. My eyes are going cross-eyed from so much reading of small print.
I know there are people maybe even some of my readers who are "pro-choice", and I am not trying to strike up a debate, but I just wanted you to know what God's Word says about about it.
King David wrote this particular psalm. He had lost his baby and valued life. He
Good Evening to All!sought God with his whole heart, searching and seeking God's face. God knows us the best, and can search our hearts and minds because of the fact that He, himself, formed them.
he saw us in our earliest stage of life, the embryo, and continued to build on that. He never considered us less than human, or a worthless blob.
God wants us to trust that we are exactly the way he wanted us to be, down to our little toenails.
Too many women are looking at this from the perspective that it is "their body" to do with as they see fit. Well, the way I look at it is that while "their body" is their own, the life inside of "their body" should have a right to do what it wants as well, which is to live. In all actuality, their body is not their's to do with as they please. It is God's. He created it. He breathed His breath into it to give it life. He should be the only one allowed to do with it as He sees fit. We are just borrowing these "shells" for our time here on earth. I understand that a woman can become overwhelmed with emotions, or with problems in her life, but that is when God can truly make a difference. Rather than taking that baby's life into their hands they ought to go to God first and ask Him what to do. If they give Him a chance He will answer.
I know I got on a soapbox, but this is something I feel very passionate about because I have been unable to ever have children, and to think about women just throwing that life inside them away, really hurts me.
Good Night to All and May God Bless,
