Excuse me, but you're wrong

The truth:
Psalm 127:3
"Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord,
The fruit of the womb is a reward."

I would argue that if our country wants to see an improvement in the state of things, we have to do quite the opposite of what Speaker Pelosi is proposing.  How about we agree with God's heart on the subject of children?  Let's value LIFE -- praise Him for every child He gives, and do our best to love each one the way Jesus does.  

I think overall, society is missing one vital piece of information: the physical state of things is directly related to the spiritual state of things.  We can never expect our hands to prosper while our hearts reject God.

The Lord controls economies; He gives and withholds prosperity.  

This whole happening only reminds me of the way this very subject of LIFE and honor of God has been on mine and hundreds of others' hearts recently.  I feel like the Lord has been highlighting it in a new way in my heart over the last few weeks, and I'm not the only one.

Read Amy's blog about it.  It's not being overly dramatic to believe that the Lord does execute judgments, and I was so moved by how matter of factly Amy said the truth...that the Lord will shake us to turn us toward righteousness.  Judgment is mercy in some ways: it would be the opposite of love to leave people wallowing in the ultimate self-destruction of sin.  The Lord shakes to turn people's eyes towards Him.

And Suz.  The other day, she happened to find an article on an immunization information website that explained how some of the most common vaccines (rubella, chicken pox) we and our children are getting were originally formulated using the bodies of aborted babies.  Read her outrage that no one told her before she gave the MMR vaccine to her children HERE.

God, end abortion and send revival to America.  There is hope, and His name is Jesus.
