MATTERS OF THE HEART

 August 2019

From time to time I ponder with great frustration why is there a law that allows the life of a baby to be taken and how can any human being be supportive of such a law? 

Yet, each time I am brought back to the realization that belief in abortion is a moral issue which is one of the heart. There is the law that makes the act of abortion legal for an individual to choose, but if the heart is involved in the decision-making process and it generally is, then the decision is not an easy one to make. Hence, the turmoil that most individuals go through and ponder when faced with their crisis pregnancy

We were not born with a desire to want to terminate life, but we are given a free will enabling us to make decisions and choices in life and even about life. The scriptures remind me at that moment when Cain killed his brother Able, he had a choice and made his decision with the influence of emotions weighing in big time. The influence of emotions definitely plays a major part for those contemplating a pregnancy decision. Radiance Women Center serves as the temporary refuge for many who need time to process this decision and work through emotions. While I would love to tell you every person always chooses life for their unborn after leaving our Center, I am grateful that we are given the opportunity for divine appointments with those who are considering. I am also grateful to every person, group, business, and church who commits to partnering with the ministry of Radiance as we serve to receive women and families, respond to unplanned pregnancies, and restore hope for life. 

In His service,
