10/26/2010- DAY 35

            In our 40 Days intention, we pray for those post abortive mothers who cannot forgive themselves: May they understand that there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.

            Today as we set up our outreach to the abortion-bound mothers, we spoke with a family from Jacksonville , Illinois who drove over two hours to kill their second child. After much thought they decided to keep their 9 week old baby, accepted our literature, and thanked us for being there. We watched them drive off the lot and towards the interstate back home. Praise God!

            Sometimes in our 18 years of ministering we notice “frequent flier” women who have repeated abortions and are basically using surgical abortion as their method of birth control. It’s a shame. Some are just full of guilt and live recklessly to cover the aftermath of their abortions. Some don’t know Jesus and what He did on the Cross for them. Some don’t think they could possibly be forgiven and know no other way of living. The devil thrives on co-dependency; he wants you to live a life full of guilt and shame. Yet, God gave His only Son to die for our sins, no matter how enormous they are. We can be forgiven if there is true repentance. We can have freedom from our sins and God can put a new song on our hearts. Rather than giving the devil a foothold in our lives, we can be a new creature in His Kingdom and live differently. Amen!

            Another couple came back out, confirmed they kept their baby, and drove off the lot. Local meter-maids for the abortion mill made it a point to cite our vital ultrasound van. It’s the price you pay when you’re affecting the devil.
