Strength for Sanctity of Life
Strength for Sanctity of Life
Psalm 139:14 NKJV
14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well.
A person is fearfully and wonderfully made. All people, babies all the way through the most elder person. This year Sanctity of Life is very near to me. Here is why.
Me and my husband were so ready to become parents, so we started trying, I got pregnant right away. Our first baby, o how exciting. I started having some problems went in and got to hear my first baby's heartbeat which was music to my ears, and see the baby on the ultrasound screen, all I could think was, beautiful creation of GOD . I went in for first OB appointment, doctors explain a lots of thing, but one thing that shocked me the most was what the doctor said, "Well if there are any problems you can choose to abort." I was in shock. No that is wrong and Only GOD can choose that path for any one. The life of my baby is very important to me. I mean look at this tiny baby, it had a fast heartbeat, it showed life, how can you even say that. The one thing I do remember them saying, "Well it is a viable pregnancy because it has a heartbeat." Well this is what viable means
capable of succeeding
capable of living or of developing into a living thing.
I mean it's says living, so to abort means stop a living fetus in a womb. Fetus means,
an unborn offspring of a mammal, in particular an unborn human baby more than eight weeks after conception.
So if people didn't believe it was a living fetus then why do they abort. See my thinking. Why do you abort if you don't believe it is not living. Let God give you the strength to stand up for the ones who can't defend themselves.
The bible even states :Jeremiah 1:5
Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.”
God has plan for everyone, and he design us to his perfection. Each person created is meant to be someone. Their life is important. You are important, so all people young and old, have a purpose here on earth.
My husband & I sadly lost our first baby, we named our baby Dani. Sadly we would lose our second baby, Arin, and our third baby Jessi. At 6 weeks they all had a had heartbeat. I was even able to record the thump thump thump on my phone & later transfer them onto a CD.
My husband and I were heartbroken. We went to each of their common burial services, as we were there, I witnessed all theses other mom and dads and family, come and say "see you soon "to their babies as well. All theses life were important. So GOD put it upon my heart to be open about my loss and be a teacher about the importance of a life. I am proud supporter of pregnancy and infant loss awareness. No matter how small a life is, it is important to GOD.
Well soon GOD was going to show and teach me how really important life is. In June 2014 Justin I found out that we were pregnant again. At first the doctor thought I was pregnant with 6 babies, and they told me that I might be asked to have an abortion because six was too many for a women to carry.
Just like my first three, I had said no before and I was gonna say no again. Having a baby was all my husband and I ever wanted so if GOD wanted us to have six babies, well we were going to have six babies and his will will be done. But if he chooses to take one we will praise him no matter, I was going to trust in GOD's plan. Even if my life could ended. We were very excited but very nervous. We were going to trust in GOD's plan. I was transferred to a high risk pregnancy specialist. on that Monday. Well it turned out that we were pregnant with quintuplets. Yes five babies. We were so very excited still, still very nervous. We knew that GOD had a plan for each of these babies their life was important to him. From five weeks to 19 weeks we watched these babies grow. We learned that there were 2 boys and 3 girls. Yes I had two sons and three daughters. We gave them names. Jeremiah William, was going to be born first. He would be named after his daddy. Josiah Dean named after Pa, the man who was a father to me would be born second. They would be the big brothers that would have to protect their little sisters. Miriam Faith would be born third and the first of my little girls. She was named after Ma, the woman that was more mom to me than grandma. Then Lilyann Marie would make her way into this world. She was named after my birth mom & my mother-in-law. Finally The baby of the family was Phoebe Annette. We were going to name her after my aunt.
We watched their heartbeat, we watch them grow, wave, kick and do flips. They were truly beautiful creations of GOD.
Sadly on September 17, 2015 at 19 weeks and one day I went into premature labor delivering all five of the babies.
Since they were so premature they were only able to live two hours outside of the womb. They were two of the most most blessed hours.
I got to hold them in my arms. I watched them move their hands and feet. I could see their hearts beating. I was in awe to see such beauty. They were a masterpiece by GOD and only 19 weeks. We were told that they would only lives seconds or minutes. GOD showed up and showed off. They lived two hours. At 19 weeks they had 10 fingers, and 10 toes.
They had knees just like you and I. They had a heartbeat just like you and I. They had a smile just like you and I. They moved just like you and I did as a baby. They opened and closed their little mouths. Jeremiah was even sucking his thumb.
One of the ultrasound tech came to see me later that evening and said she saw GOD that Day. So I hope you see, as short as their life was, it was important and they were created so beautifully. Life from the very beginning can be used for a major purpose.
I understand if you are not ready to be a parent, but GOD is ready for that life to be someone. Trust me that life you don't want, God does and you can bless a couple who can't biologically have one of their own. God can give you strength.
I want end this with my favorite verse :
11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
GOD has our future planned out from the beginning.
Jesus Loves you
