Pro-Life vs. LOVE

God’s Word: I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, Ephesians 3:16

Wisdom Shared;

To all the “Pro-Lifers” who profess Christ as your Lord and Savior. I have been seeing and reading your commentaries, memes and posts regarding those people that state they are pro-choice. The truth is we must be willing to share; …but in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, 1 Peter 3:15

Wisdom Shared:  The truth is: We were once foolish and disobedient according to God’s Holy Scriptures; Titus 3:2-4 to slander no one, to be peaceable and considerate, and always to be gentle toward everyone. At one time we too were foolish, disobedient, deceived and enslaved by all kinds of passions and pleasures. We lived in malice and envy, being hated and hating one another. But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared … By the grace of God we have been saved, no longer ensnared by the trappings and lies of this world. It is to our glory through God to answer the call to shine the light of Christ before thOse poor in spirit, broken and lost souls in order that they can know the truth to be set free; the gospel of peace through the hope we have. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you [Christian], the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, Ephesians 1:18 … Just as we are instructed — to forgive one another just as the Lord has forgiven you…because if we do not forgive others and their sins, your Father will not forgive you. This is pertinent instruction especially for those who believe it is a woman’s right to choose to abort a child. How can we reach them if we are behaving judgmental and critical? How can we share the testimony of God at work? I’m sorry we are not answering our call to love one another deeply with a pure heart and sincere faith through a clear conscience. 1 Timothy 1:5 We need to share out of benevolent heart, mercy, love, justice and humility with God leading the way. Is God leading the way when you’re sharing memes and sarcastic comments and post over Pro-choice issues they have no wisdom about?- Share the reason for your hope with gentleness and respect.

Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance,

In His Love,

… Out of the mouth of Christ;

Matthew 6:9-15

9 “This, then, is how you should pray:

“‘Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
10 your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us today our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation,[a]
but deliver us from the evil one.[b]’

14 For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.

Wrestling God?

Jacob Wrestles With God-Genesis 32

22 That night Jacob got up and took his two wives, his two female servants and his eleven sons and crossed the ford of the Jabbok.23 After he had sent them across the stream, he sent over all his possessions. 24 So Jacob was left alone, and a man wrestled with him till daybreak. 25 When the man saw that he could not overpower him, he touched the socket of Jacob’s hip so that his hip was wrenched as he wrestled with the man. 26 Then the man said, “Let me go, for it is daybreak.”

But Jacob replied, “I will not let you go unless you bless me.”

27 The man asked him, “What is your name?”

“Jacob,” he answered.

28 Then the man said, “Your name will no longer be Jacob, but Israel,[a]because you have struggled with God and with humans and have overcome.”

29 Jacob said, “Please tell me your name.”

But he replied, “Why do you ask my name?” Then he blessed him there. Genesis 32:22-29

Jacob – wrestling God fights for us, God-of-Angel-Armies protects us.  Psalm 46:3 MSG

He who calls you is faithful and will do it. 1 Thessalonians 5:24

Wisdom Shared:

Jacob-wrestling God fights for us, God-of-Angel-Armies protects us. Psalm 46:7 –

I was listening to the daily audio bible app;  https://dailyaudiobible.com/ Inspiration came  through the revelation that prompted me to share this area of scripture. Jacob wrestled with God and God of Angel Armies protects us.  I find myself wresting with God, just  as Jacob during certain times in my life.  It is through that very inspiration of the word of God  we see…  He meets all needs  long before prayers are lifted up…He knows my coming and he knows my going.  There has been much wrestling with God over the years; in my singleness, my parental role; my work and the overall direction of my life.  Most definitely I am a flawed woman saved by grace. I have made many detours on my journey that have brought me to road blocks and detours.  However, by His unfailing love, grace and mercy; He is a God of second chances.    He is the lifer of our heads!

Beloved, God has  already paved the way for you! regardless of the circumstance that you may be currently wrestling with; Home- Marriage; Parenting or loss of a precious loved one;  Health- a chronic pain, injury or illness. At Work; Employer, a project time line or co-worker. Financial obligations- monthly bill paying expenses; rent/ mortgage  and ah…those unexpected expenses.   Remain confident, He who started a good work in you will complete it until the day of Christ Jesus. He has called his angels to keep our foot from stumbling on a stone-  For he will command his angels concerning us to guard us in all our ways; they will lift us up in their hands, so that we will not strike our foot against a stone. Psalms 91:11-12 …May this Psalm soothe your spirit just as the “Balm of Gilead” Jeremiah 8:22- It has spoken to me and given me strength and joy for the journey…I pray the same for your sons/daughters of King today.

Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance,

Love in Christ,

The Battle is Beyond Words…
God’s Word: The words of the reckless pierce like swords, but the tongue of the wise brings healing. Proverbs 12:18

Wisdom Shared:
How often do you find yourself … saying something that did not come off as you initially intended, for the good in the name of helping. Better yet, how about not agreeing to disagree with love and respect. The power of our words has a greater impact than we realize … Good words or bad words have an impact, for the greater good or for tearing one another down.

Ponder This: Are your words empowering or discouraging?
Think about the last time you disagreed with your spouse; child; family or co-worker –
Proverbs 12:18 States:
The words of the reckless pierce like swords, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.

  • Are your words piercing … to the point it leads to brokenness?
  • Are your words healing … that shows justice, mercy and love?


Hurt People:

Hurt people , hurt people, they can come off as prideful, abrasive and super critical. They can offer up their thoughts and unsolicited words but do not receive the backlash that can occur as a result. I personally had to cut my time with those people in my life that use their words like daggers coming at me.   The sad part in some cases they are unaware of their bad behavior. Relationships are complex sometimes even difficult, adding emotional reactions brings forth a despairing mind set. Not only is the relationship doomed so is the esteem of the individual received by the offender.

Beyond the Battle of Words

Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance,
In Christ Love,
