I’m part of a community that is experiencing a baby boom. I find myself distracted in church services because I’m enamored by the chubby cheeks, bright bows, and toothless grins that surround me. It seems like every time I turn around, I see a happy baby, nestling close to its mother or being carried in their father’s arms. Having so many newborns creates quite the joyous atmosphere. It causes me to reflect on the pleasure God the father has for his children.
It’s easy to lose sight of how much God enjoys his kids. We are contending for the ending of abortion. Many of us have seen countless mothers chose to destroy life, instead of save it. The painful loss of millions weighs heavy on our hearts. Often we wonder “Does anyone want these babies?” “Does anyone care?” When our hearts start to sink in despair, we must remember this- God is a joyful Father. He wants these children, every single one. He has delighted in them, even before they were formed in their mother’s womb. That’s what He told me when I found out I survived an abortion. “I wanted you,” he spoke into my heart.
