Forever In Your Heart
God is in control of life and death, he holds the keys to it, only HE knows the FUTURE and what is best, God is love, What if Mary was forced to have an abortion, Would Jesus still have been born to save us all from our sins, yes!(Another Virgin) but he knew the future and he knew Marys heart,she would carry Jesus and birth him life, because God has a purpose for each life conceived and brought forth in the womb,(God is in control and uses what or who he wants to bring forth what he sets out to be fullfilled or accomplished) even before you were born, I knew the number of hairs on your head, declares the lord (Scripture)
God places each child, each soul for a reason, a purpose, we don't know that reason at the moment, but maybe that child will grow-up and be the next child to end cancer , etc. It is not for us to judge, for God knows the plans he has for each and everyone of us,
Jer.29:11 "I know the plans I have for you," says the Lord, Plans for good and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
IT is our CHOICE to choose to follow Jesus, his ways and his teachings, we have a free will, God gave us free will, he is not a dictator. If you make someone love you they don't really love you, but if they CHOOSE to love you, they really love you.
Jesus died for all the babies that never got to live, and he died for all the mothers who made a bad choice to kill those babies, he loves them too, he forgives, because his mercy and grace and his love is so deep, his love is eternal.
There are couples out there who are praying for a child to love and hold, who can't have natural children, but God has a purpose for them to adopt children , they are all Gods children anyway, he is just allowing us to be the overseers for them, everything I have is Gods, he gave it all to me, and all of it goes back to him. So who are we to take a life and kill it? We don't know the knowledge of the future.
When sin entered into the world through Adam and Eve, then there was life and death, good and evil, right and wrong. For they tasted of the knowledge of good and evil. God told them not to eat of that tree, but they CHOSE to eat and disobey,
when they could have had life eternal and without hate, without murder, without all the evil, they thought they were smarter than God, and chose to do what they wanted, not what God was trying to tell them for their own good, because he loves us.They could've had a life free from death, but sin and disobediance brings forth death. So God was telling them something for their own Good, like our parents told us, they didn't listen and now that is why we have death, once born it is ordained for man to die. To everything there is a season, and if you have life, you have death, if you have good you have evil. Heaven is the only place without sin, for God cannot look upon sin.Jesus was without sin, until he took on the sins of the world, our sins at the cross. Then he gained the keys to heaven and hell, to life and death, he rose on the third day and was brought back to life, and now lives forever in heaven. His Holy spirit lives inside each believer, each believer is to be christlike...to do what Jesus would do....Jesus wouldn't kill babies yet to be born.
That one child, one life, could be the next Billy Ghraham or the next president, next inventor of something we need. We destroy ourselves with unintelligence.
On another note, I was born with a birth defect, I am so glad my mother didn't have me aborted because I wasn't perfect, neither is she, you, or any of us, Jesus is the only perfect one.
The doctors told my mom that I would need special tubes in my ears to hear, speech classes, braces, surgery.etc.
Thank God, Praise the Lord Jesus, she trusted God and prayed for me, I didn't need tubes, I didn't need speech classes.
I made A's and B's in school, I was told I could pursue a career in modeling, but I live for Jesus, I not only talk and get up to speak in front of people , I sing and write songs for Jesus.
I help people who are less, who are in need, because I know, I have been there, I know what they feel and what they are going through,(They feel unloved, unperfect as to the worlds standards) I am sent to love, and give love, show love, Gods love to all. His love is unconditional.He loves me they way I am...not for who I am , but for what I am in him for him. He loves you just the way you are and knew that 2000 years ago when he died on the cross, he died for all the people that had been, were, and were yet to come, he died and took your place , the palce of your children and grandchildren, he knew we would all sin, and he took our punishment before God so we wouldn't have to, he loved us so much to die for us,
WHO would die for you? your mother? father? best friend? who would lay down their life to save yours? and if saving lifes was so important to Jesus, that he suffered and died on the cross for each life, that was or ever will be, then we should hold life just as precious and save each life that we can.
If I didn't have the birth defect, I would have been arrogant and prideful, selfish, non-loving, giving. The scar on my face keeps me humble, and it allows me to hear and see the suffering of others. Prideful and arrogance is what Satan was cast out of heaven for, by God himself, because he wanted to be God.
Who is in control of your life?
you or God?
I found out the hard way....GOD is in control of all things Great or small!
Even if you love him or not, accept him as your Lord and savior or not....God is in Control!
We are not God...and never will we have the love or the intelligence he has.
What a blessing....go here!
J. M. Barrie, the playwright, may have said it best when he wrote, “God gave us memories so that we might have roses in December.”
