God alone is Sovereign

1 Chronicles 29:11

Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O LORD, and you are exalted as head above all.

You Knit Them Together

I have been "sitting" on this post for some time. Since February 5 actually. At one of our Upstate Heart Mom meetings several of our Heart Moms shared that they were counseled during their pregnancy to terminate their babies. It stuck with me. It weighed heavy on my heart and still does. So I wanted to share my thoughts with you. You see, these kids may not be "perfect" by wordly standards, but the Bible tells us that:

You formed my inward parts;
You wove me in my mother's womb.
I will give thanks to you for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Wonderful are Your works,
And my soul knows it very well.
My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth;
Your eyes have seen my unformed substance;
and in Your book were all written
the days that were ordained for me,
When as yet there was not one of them.

Psalm 139:13-16

So what does that me? It means that GOD formed these babies in our wombs and they are WONDERFULLY made - special heart and all :) These kids are SKILLFULLY wrought. The thougt of this brings tears to my eyes. These kids are blessings, as are all children. So, I for one am truly thankful that each of these Heart Moms carried their babies and even though it is a difficult road to walk we know how truly special each of these kids are.

If you have a little free time, I encourage you to click here and watch this. It's certainly something to think about.

Thank you, Tina, for this beautiful post. It is sad how many times people are advised to terminate by professionals. Our babies are miracles and God is glorified in their lives!
Heart hugs,

Beautifully said! It was never even suggested that we terminate our pregnancy (an we never would have, even if it had been suggested!), but I am amazed how many heart moms have been in that position. Thank you for the wonderful post!
