Anita’s decision for abortion stemmed from a desire to secure a good future.
Abortion allowed her to maintain career plans, preserve her reputation, and protect her resources.
Those may be good goals but she says, “Leaving God out of my plans left me on my own to deal with the fallout.”
In Jeremiah 2:13 God says it’s sinful to try to provide for ourselves what only he can create, including our security and future well-being. And a second sin follows as we forsake his help to correct the mess we’ve made without him.
Anita has learned to look to God.
No matter how far we have wandered from his love, and no matter how trying our circumstances have become.
When you know God is your always reliable source, self-reliance recedes as you rest in his care.
My people have committed two sins:
They have forsaken me,
the spring of living water,
and have dug their own cisterns,
broken cisterns that cannot hold water. (Jeremiah 2:13)
