For You formed my inward parts;You covered me in my mother’s womb.
I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Marvelous are Your works,And that my soul knows very well.
My frame was not hidden from You,When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed.
And in Your book they all were written,
The days fashioned for me,
When as yet there were none of them.
This month I’ve been working at stepping out and doing something for these babies, and their mamas (who are precious in God’s sight, too!). I am so thankful for all of the pregnancy centers and organizations that want to help give these babies a chance to live and be born and grow up.
With knowledge comes responsibility and I cannot sit back and be silent and still.
I still need to do a lot of research, but for now I’ve started making blankets to give to these mamas and their little ones. As I make each blanket I’ve been praying for the child and mother who will receive it. It’s so hard for me to wrap my mind around that each one of these blankets that I’ve made will one day be wrapped around a little baby who someone wanted to murder.
Here are some of the things I’ve been praying for:
*That the baby will grow strong and be healthy
*That the mama will be healthy and not overwhelmed with the responsibility a new baby brings
*That the mama will find God’s peace and love
*That the baby will grow up knowing about God and His love
*That if the baby is adopted his/her adopted family will be prepared to welcome the new little one
*For the crisis pregnancy center workers to have wisdom, love, peace and grace and adequate funds
I’m so excited about getting to be a voice for these little ones whose cries can’t be heard yet! Today while I was buying more baby yarn (quite a cart full) three ladies behind me in line asked if I was working on a project. I joyfully told them I was making blankets for pregnancy centers for babies who’s mothers had considered abortions but then didn’t want to kill their babies.
(Yes, that might sound harsh, but aborting a baby is murder.)
As I’m working on these blankets I’m filled with a love for the ladies who are having the babies as well as the babies themselves. I can’t imagine how hard of a situation some of these mothers are in and I want to do all I can to help them out.
Life is precious and I am taking a stand to defend it and be a voice for those whoes voices can’t be heard.
