Today, as the 2017 March for Life is in progress, as it has been since the first march in 1974, I come to you humbled and contrite.
You see, since the so called women’s march that occurred last Saturday, I have been trying to stand for life in the wrong way. I have allowed the anger and hopelessness to overtake me, allowing it to permeate into my own heart. I actually could FEEL the presence of Satan…darkness, anger, cynicism, hopelessness, sadness, pride, hate, and confusion.
I made two grave mistakes. The first is that I did not pray ernestly for the Lord to work through me and to cover me with His armor. And the second mistake was allowing myself to get into a conversation…an argument…with the devil online.
With the Lord’s help and protection, I will not make those mistakes again.
How do I know that my standing in support of the voiceless unborn is the right choice, and that it is from God? How do I know that a baby growing in her mother’s womb, that should be the safest place in the world, should always be given the right to life…to be born? How do I know that the mother, that chooses to kill her unborn baby, will suffer from emptiness and darkness for her whole life, until she allows her broken or stone hard heart to be opened to God’s love, mercy and forgiveness?
How do I know these things?
The evidence is in the women themselves.
The evidence is in the mockery of feminism, that was shown in its full light at the so called women’s march last weekend. It was in the disgustingly vile signs, costumes and spewed hatred coming from the mouths of these women. It was the ignorance and confusion of those women professing to be more than their sexuality…and then wearing vagina costumes framing their faces. It was seen in the rabid joy of women (and also seen on children and some men ) “celebrating” their cause by crocheting and wearing “pussy hats” in solidarity. It was seen and heard in vile speeches given by celebrities, who portray themselves in disgustingly perverted ways on screen or through their music, screaming hate filled messages.
Is that what womanhood and feminism means to you???
Or could it be that true feminism is rooted in a quiet love and respect for God, family, country, and the empowering knowledge that our bodies were created with the ability to conceive, carry, and give birth to the greatest gift that God can give us…the gift of life. The gift of being a vessel of His love…and saying yes, as Our Blessed Mother, Mary, did, to His will for us. For in bringing another baby into this world, we are expanding Our Lord’s Kingdom. It is so much more than us…it is greater than we can ever fathom.
The march last weekend, and the many reasons mothers seek out and kill their babies while growing in the womb, are rooted in confusion, fear, hatred, sadness, selfishness, isolation, pride, arrogance, and despair. This was easily seen and heard while viewing the march, and listening to the protesters and speakers. The body language and the eyes to their souls sadly spoke volumes to me.
The March for Life that is occurring right now, features speakers and protesters that are rooted in love, mercy, humbleness, inner joy, faith, hope, selflessness, and the desire to reach out, with their hearts, hands and resources…to be of support to hurting women, through the whole process of pregnancy and beyond. To be there for them in friendship and love, helping to ensure that they, and their babies, have the support, love and necessities for as long as they need it.
Which woman are you? What is the root of your beliefs?
Much to think about…
I ask God for forgiveness for allowing Satan to enter my heart through this past week. I ask that He forgive me for not seeing past the actions and the vulgar, hateful words spewed…for not looking for Him in their hearts and souls. For not seeing the hurt and pain that reside deep within them.
For, instead of judging them, I should have been praying for love, mercy and joy to enter their hearts and lives.
Always knowing that I am too weak to always extend love and mercy on my own. It is only when I am protected by the Armor of God…and willing to be His vessel… that HIS love may shine from my heart.
May God bless all of us and our country!
