Cradle My Heart Today | Candy’s story 7-26-17
God is not an angry punisher, but He does allow worldly consequences which may be very painful to accept. Listen now:
Candy had trouble conceiving after an abortion because the procedure was not properly done.
And her partner walked out even though she had chosen it to try to please him.
Candy was angry and alone, but she’s learned God is not to blame.
By accepting her consequences, she has avoided bitterness and committing new sins with new and perhaps more painful results.
Candy’s healthy dependence on God means she trusts his correction to bring comfort.
She says, “To be contrite is to be broken-hearted over having offended God, and not just fearful of the consequences.”
In Psalm 51, David expressed his godly sorrow over the sexual sin of adultery with Bathsheba, as well as the conspiracy to murder her husband to cover up her pregnancy. They paid a heavy price as the earthly consequences when that child died (see 2 Samuel 12). Yet David grieved with hope–not only of seeing the child again in heaven, but of God’s complete forgiveness and acceptance here and now.
Abortion costs us a great deal. But God’s love is never a casualty of abortion.
The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit,
A broken and a contrite heart—
These, O God, You will not despise. Psalm 51:17 NKJV
