Choosing life even when it hurts

Cradle My Heart Today | Lisa’s story 7-24-17

Lisa was marked for death by China’s one-child policy. Listen now:

But her mother’s courageous defense of her life eventually made Lisa a strong momma as well.

She never faltered when the doctors said she should terminate her first pregnancy since her child’s heart was badly malformed.

Lisa chose life.

Not once, but a second time when he needed to be resuscitated during one of several surgeries as the doctors again advised against giving him that chance.

She says, “Half a dozen people came to Christ because of the legacy Zeke left on earth. I hope his story gives hope and encouragement and faith that God can still do the impossible today.”

A difficult diagnosis often serves to put our faith on the line. Do we truly trust God? Do we believe in His goodness and grace? Are we completely willing to submit to His will for us?

Finding faith to follow Jesus Christ wherever His love leads is the beginning of peace.

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. John 14:27
