We’ve seen the local and national news and, like you, our timelines and newsfeeds are filled with sad videos. However, it is important that we keep in mind that there is indeed light at the end of the tunnel. And even when times get hard, it is important to remember that God is always in control. So, with that being said, our staff has provided some brief words of encouragement that we have found to be helpful during difficult times. Stay strong!
1. Things are never as bad as they seem.
2. Let every challenge make you better, not bitter.
3. Be patient.
3. As long as there’s breath in your body, there’s still hope.
4. God’s got this!
5. It’s o.k. to cry. Just remember that God will wipe away our tears in the midst of our pain.
7. We serve a resurrected God. Our God is alive! Death doesn’t have the final say and neither does man.
Day 40: In My Own Words
I have a 21-year old son. If it would have been up to some misguided “medical professionals” years ago, he might never have been born.
Day 39: Top Ten – Part 2
Tomorrow is the last day of 40 Days for Life (you can find the latest devotional here). To close out my blog, I’ll share a personal story about my personal encounter with the abortion issue.
Day 38: Top Ten – Part 1
I’ve decided I’m done syncing up with the 40 Days reflections (you can find the latest here). I thought for the last two days, I’d do a couple top 10 lists. I’m too lazy right now to think up some creative overarching theme for the lists, so they’ll be random facts, thoughts, musings, etc.
Day 37: The Illusion of Choice
I was talking yesterday to a young friend of mine about the information commonly circulated to young people about contraception, STDs, and other sexual health subjects. For example, she was surprised to read in a brochure I gave her that condoms do not protect against all strains of HPV. She had been told, “Just use a condom, you’re covered.” During the course of our conversation, she became more shocked at what she was reading. HPV is the same as genital warts? She believes that if more teenagers knew this kind of information, more of them would make different choices about being sexually involved. My thought exactly.
