Do you worry?

How many of us are constantly looking for that "next" thing. (I raise my hand)

So much of our time is spent wanting and longing for something we are sure will make our life better or fulfilled. How long after we get this we are looking for more? How much time is spent worrying about things?

I'm so guilty, very guilty.

Recently we've been looking at moving to a smaller town. I can't tell you the stress that has entered my life. Anxiety, impatience, worry and just plain ole stress.

In addition to moving I worry about my kids, my weight, my clothes, food.... and the list could go on and on.

What does God tell us about worrying?

"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat (or drink), or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds in the sky; they do not sew or reap, they gather nothing into barns, yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are no your more important than they? Can any of you by worrying add a single moment to your life-span?"

Matthew 6:25-27

Wow, Jesus tells us to not worry that he always provides for us. We might not have our dream home or all our worldly desires fulfilled but he takes care of us. The last line hits hard. Worrying only takes away and wastes time out of our day. Gotta think about that one....

All I can say and repeat in my head is: "Jesus I trust in you".

Note ( I know this topic is highly controversial. It's one very close to my heart. I've stated facts and sources. I'm educated on this topic and want my point to be valid not just one of passion).

This is a photo of a sign that a planned parenthood supporter held in front of the Texas state capital. They were protesting against the Texas sonogram bill requiring that a sonogram be shown to the women before an abortion.

I wonder if this person and planned parenthood took a minute to read and think about the sign they were holding for the protest.

Read it and think.........

So... an abortion is a form of birth control?
The new Texas bill will require women to see the "contents of their uterus" prior to an abortion procedure. Maybe planned parenthood is afraid the truth will be revealed. The "contents" look and appear to be in the shape of a baby. Planned parenthood will do anything to cover up the truth.

A pro-choice organization says they defend a women's right to an abortion even a late term abortion "because she has determined that she can't give birth or give her child up for adoption". So they approve to terminate the pregnancy and end the child's life. Note above they even call it a "child".

Some abortions (14%) are made during the 2nd trimester (13 - 27 weeks). A recent study has shown that twins at 14 weeks gestation deliberately make movements to the other twin. They touch head to head or arm to arm. Research showed by 18 weeks the twin spend up to 30% of their time reaching out and stroking their c0-twin.

Did you know the medical clinics call the 2nd stage of an abortion an evacuation of the uterus?

It makes me sad to think of all the families battling with infertility and some people get pregnant and abort because it's their form of birth control. (Like the sign states)

Abortion doesn't just kill the babies, it hurts women too. Sadly the abortion industry is a big money maker. Many women are given mis-information and they fail to look past their current circumstances and only look at the short term. I know several women who had abortions and now hurt emotionally and have regret. Watch this video of a hidden camera at a planned parenthood center. You can judge for yourself the information given to women. Here's another one..... and another one.

I pray today for the baby's in danger of abortion. The womb should be the safest place on Earth but sadly for many it's a deadly place. May God give the grace of peace and forgiveness to the women hurting from abortion.

This is all truth, sometimes the truth is hard to hear... especially when it's not what we want to hear.

Please take a moment and say a prayer for an end to abortion and for those in danger of abortion and those hurt by abortion.
