I am not one to delve into a political discussion on my blog. I have opinions, ideals and I do enough political monitoring to be able to make informed voting decisions. But when it comes to the day in day out political discussions happening around the web, I usually steer clear.
Today, I’m pretty fired up. Seeing posts, tweets, and trends celebrating the murder of millions of innocent children, babes, well that sickens me. How did we become a society that devalues HUMAN LIFE so much that they want to shout it from the top of their lungs that they murdered their own child?
Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. 28 Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” Genesis 1:26-28.
God created man in HIS Image, and HE gave them dominion, rule, authority over all living things that moves on the earth. We are different from the animals.
And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being. Genesis 2:7.
He formed man, we did not evolve from the animals. He BREATHED into his nostrils the breath of life. He gives us LIFE.
Because a portion of our society has turned away from the Living God, they changed what is taught in our schools, they placed a higher value on what they call animal instincts, that really are fleshly lusts, and have turned to self-pleasure, self-gratification, self-exultation so that they bear no responsibility in the lives of others.
As a mom who received the blessing of a child through the gift of adoption. I am so very saddened to think of the millions of innocent babes who have been murdered. We look at the holocaust of World War II and tsk, tsk and shake our heads at how sad that was, how insane Hitler must have been, and wonder how the German people and Nazi forces could turn a blind eye to what was happening. But, we’ve become a society that has, and is, doing the same. We’ve allowed this to go on far too long without speaking up. We’ve allowed the voices of a FEW, drown the hearts of MANY. Why? Ah, I don’t know.
But I’m tired of it. I may be a small corner of the blogosphere. But I have decided that I will speak on behalf of those who have no voice.
I’m not one to shout. I seek to live a peaceable and humble life. But being humble, being peaceable, doesn’ t mean one should remain silent in the face of evil.
“Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;
Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” Isaiah 5:20.
I am thankful that my son’s birth mother chose LIFE. I am humbled that I am blessed to be his mom. I pray that other mothers whose hearts are awaiting motherhood through adoption will too be blessed as I have been. I pray that those who are wavering on what to do with the child in their wombs will see LIFE, choose LIFE and embrace the babe within, either by loving them as their own, or by loving them into the arms of one who is waiting. Choose LIFE. Because All Lives Matter.
And so, from my little corner of the web, I am shouting. CHOOSE LIFE, All Lives Matters. If you too, have been blessed through adoption, either your own, or in adopting another. I ask that you join me, and others who have taken up the hashtag #ShoutYourAdoption in response to a similar, yet, more evil one. In an attempt to say that All Lives Matter, Choose LIFE. You can tweet it, post it, like it, share it, pin it, Instagram it or whatever other means you have of letting the world know that to YOU, All Lives Matter, Choose Life.
