Cradle My Heart Today | Anita’s story 11-10-17
Anita’s decision for abortion stemmed from a desire to secure a good future. Listen now:
Abortion allowed her to maintain career plans, preserve her reputation, and protect her resources.
And while those may be good goals, today 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 often 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)
The path of abortion recovery involves reading a new map with God as our true north. As we journey we see our self-reliance leading to isolation and fear. The alternative path of joy is found by living in light of our responsibilities to love God and to love others as ourselves. And as we do we can also grieve, with hope, for our abortion loss.
