Abortion is forever

image

“I read a newspaper editorial arguing that abortion is just another surgery, no different from a root canal or appendectomy. But why don’t people remember the anniversary of their appendectomy twenty years later? Why don’t they find themselves weeping uncontrollably, grieving the loss of their appendix? And where are all the support groups and counseling for those who’ve had root canals?”

Abortion hurts woman. Period.

On Peace and the Little Girl Who Altered My Heart

Tonight before bed, as I read to my children the Bible story of Abraham and Isaac, the Holy Spirit deeply moved my heart. I felt kind of silly crying as I read from a children’s bible story book. .  But the simplicity of the story spoke so directly to my heart. I was overwhelmed by the realization of just how much God loves me. Story time this evening brought me to a place that I am guilty of not always being.. It brought me to my knees before the Lord with the faith and awe of a child. 

I could not stop the tears from falling onto the pages as I read. As I struggled before my children to speak, my daughter walked over to where I was sitting and ever so lightly wiped a tear from my cheek. 

My daughter is 7. She struggles with learning and is emotionally and socially behind other children her age. The Lord has really been working and mending some things within her these past few months though.  And I give him all glory and honor for the things He has done and will do. 

My little girl may not know how to read well yet..or how to write her name in a straight line..But my little girl has a heart for God. God gave her a mind fully capable of grasping the idea of His love..and for that I am so grateful. I’ll never forget the day several years ago when she and I knelt down in my living room and she asked Jesus to come into her heart.

I don’t really care if my little girl ever learns to read (even though I know she will..she is making great progress as of late) as long as my children know Jesus.. I will consider the time God gave me to be a mother as time of success.  

My little girl did not enter this world from my womb. She is my husband’s daughter. We got her when she was three. Her first few years here on earth she experienced neglect and many things that I do not know of. . Things I don’t want to know. Oh how she deserved it. . As all children do.. but  that pure and selfless love that mothers should show  their children is something that, during her first 3 years, my daughter did not receive.  

The first time I met her I loved her. I knew that I had met my husband because God wanted me to be Trinitee’s mother. And I am. I am her mommy and she is my mine. 

I don’t see how some people say that they couldn’t love an adopted child. . These People must not know Jesus. That’s the only explanation that I can think of. 

I remember when I was pregnant with my son I was so scared that I would love him more than my daughter. .I was terrified that I wouldn’t be able to help it. I prayed over and over during those 9 months for God to please not let this happen. He didn’t. My love for her only deepened. God wove her into my soul and permanently altered my heart. 

28 years ago.. As I lay fast asleep in my crib. . God already knew Trinitee. Beginning the moment I took my first breath, God orchestrated events in my life which prepared and conditioned my heart for the day that I would meet my daughter.  God has it all figured out and knows the plans he has for us and for our children.  And with this assurance, peace.. peace..Such wonderful peace may we find in Him.

“Vaccines Saved Us” – Intellectual Dishonesty At Its Most Naked

________________Child Health Safety_________________

If there’s one thing about the drug industry backed vaccine movement CHS has learned over the last several years, it’s that it’s almost completely immune to evidence, science, and reason.

No matter how much evidence is arrayed against it, there are those among its spokespeople who always finds a way to spin, distort, or misrepresent the evidence to combat it and not have to give up the concept that vaccines don’t cause autism. “Its a mystery” but bizarrely the one thing they are are sure of “its not vaccines“, even when this has been confirmed in the past by leading health officials and agencies through gritted teeth when publicly embarrassed by media attention:Vaccination Causes Autism – Say US Government & Merck’s Director of Vaccines.

Not that this is any news to readers of this blog, but it bears repeating often. It also bears repeating and…

Does God Have Emotions?

A wonderful blog from my father. This is a question often asked in my mind.

Pastor Kemp's Blog

  • Matthew 9:36 (NKJV) But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd.

There are some that teach that God has no emotions (impassibility).  After all, how can God, who knows all (omniscient) and who is completely self-sufficient (aseity) and unchanging (immutable) have emotions?

God knew who was going to win every gold medal before the Olympics even began.  He knows who will win the Super Bowl next year and he knows what IBM will close at on July 19, 2014.  (Actually the Markets aren’t open that day; it’s a Saturday—I was just checking to see if you were still with me!).

The point is this: Is God an aloof, distant, motionless and passionless Being looming over human history in power and might or is He actively involved both in the stands cheering us on with…

We are going to home school our kids, but that’s only because we hate education

one of my favorite bits of this awesome article:
“It’s very chilling to think that parents are sending their children to government facilities for the express purpose of being “socialized” by government workers. It’s one thing to send your kids there IN SPITE of the social “lessons” he’ll learn. It’s quite another to send them specifically FOR those lessons. I went to public school, and my parents spent most evenings trying to undo the “socialization” that so many other parents seem to embrace.”

The Matt Walsh Blog

First, I’d like to treat you to a look at a few snippets of some emails I received yesterday, after a certain “controversial” segment on my show:

“I never realized you were so anti-education…”

“It figures that a teabagger would hate education so much…”

“….so it seems you would rather have a nation full of illiterates…”

“….I get tired of your anarchist propaganda…”

“I’m sure Hitler would be very proud of you…”

That last one — the obligatory “you’re as bad as Hitler!” charge — is especially ironic, considering the subject that prompted these responses: public education. Specifically, my belief that government education is an unmitigated disaster, and can only be remedied by more and more families deciding to remove government from the equation and educate their children themselves. That last emailer is, predictably, a proud product of public school. But you already knew that, in light of his hilarious…

Morning Ramblings with God — Confusion.

For any of you who feel led this morning to give up 3 minutes of your time and listen to this mad sounding lady, you will hear that I made this recording early this morning as a way to document my heart so that I would be able to write a blog about it at some point later on today. I am at a loss this morning and can’t quite find the words to express what I spoke into my phone this morning (im sure I looked like such a ding bat..thankfully, the I do not care what the birds think of me)..since the words are unavailable at the moment, I will just expose these struggles..these inner struggles that have me somewhat weary this morning in their raw form.

confusion

I am not sure where exactly this all is coming from. For the first time in a long, long time, I am trying to please the Lord. I am making a conscience attempt to lay down the things which cloud my heart.. the things about me that hurt the heart of God. I never even worried this much in the past – when I was living in very dark sin and bondage. So I just don’t understand why I am feeling these things now.

I do not expect many people (if any..well I can always count on my mom and dad to listen) to actually listen to this (it does not hurt my feelings at all, by the way). But if you do listen and feel the Holy Spirit prompting you, please share with me your thoughts. Please lift me up in prayer and just call out my name at some point today.
Am I the only person who has ever dealt with feeling this way? I guess the best way that I can find right now (as I rush to finish this so I can get my kids ready for church) to describe how I feel is that I am torn between the God of Judgment and the ever-loving Redeemer of the lost.. which one is my God? And, as I suppose the answer is, if they are both the Almighty..how can I make sense of this in my own life and not feel like I can never be worthy?

Why are so many Christians concerned about gay marriage but not about GMOs?

Why are so many Christians concerned about gay marriage but not about GMOs?

At the base of it, what is the reason why many Christians oppose same sex marriage*? The answer is very simple..it is not an answer filled with hate or judgement..it is just the bottom line of it all – it goes against God’s design.

GMOs are genetically modified organisms.. A genetically modified organism is an organism whose genetic material has been altered using genetic engineering techniques.   I do not want to feed my children genetically modified food because genetically modified food goes against Gods design. We are talking about DNA here. The DNA..the genetic makeup of gmo food has been changed from the way that GOD created it. We are taking DNA of one thing and forcing it into the DNA of another thing. DNA..DNA! I wish that there was a way for me to further allow you to hear the urgency I feel as I type this. DNA is GOD’S design for life!

What kind of outcomes are possible here? What happens when we try to out do God’s design? God created our bodies and God created the food that we put into our bodies. Food is our life source here on earth..without it we would die. Do you not think that God would have created the food that runs his other creation, our bodies, with the utmost perfection?

All the science that has shown the multitude of harmful health effects of GMOs, the lack of human health studies of GMO foods, or the fact that GMO seeds are illegal and that GMO foods must be labeled in many European countries is NOT the main focus of my writing this. At the end of the day..I come back to one thing – I do not want to fuel my children’s bodies with food that goes against the design of the one and only Almighty God. The outcomes of this could never and will never be good because man can not and will not EVER outdo God.. man may try, but at the end of the day.. after learning from history and from the word of God, when man tries to change God’s design..it has led to nothing but confusion and destruction. As a parent who is giving it my all to raise my children according to God’s word, feeding my children gmo food is something that I will avoid in every way possible.

Yes, it is a pain in the neck and a huge financial burden to supply them with food as God created it..but it is a conviction and a stand that I will sacrifice to make. If more Christians joined me in this..my, how things would change. If more Christians would become vocal about this issue and stand up for God’s design in the supermarket and with their wallets..Washington and industry would take notice. But until things do change..I will continue to support God’s design in my own home and in the lives of my children. God gave me trinitee and rory and I feel a very convicting urgency to raise them according to the word of God in all aspects of life because something that I have learned is that when you follow Gods instructions and God’s design – you find LIFE. When you stray from it (as I should definitely know about) – you find pain and destruction.

Then God said, “Let the earth sprout vegetation, plants yielding seed, and fruit trees on the earth bearing fruit AFTER THEIR KIND with seed in them”; and it was so. The earth brought forth vegetation, plants yielding seed AFTER THEIR KIND, and trees bearing fruit with seed in them, AFTER THEIR KIND; and God saw that IT WAS GOOD.” ~ Genesis 1:11-12

*(This is not a post to stir up debate about same sex marriage. I do not hate gay people.I do not look down on them or judge them. I love them and my heart is burdened for them..Jesus gave his life for every single person ever born on this planet..and to not love gay people and to reach out to them with love would be an action that goes against the heart of our lord and savior, Jesus Christ.)
