“You knit me together in my mother’s womb”


Psalm 139:13-15
“You did form my inward parts, you knit me together in my mother’s womb…you knew me right well; my frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret…”

Knitting looks like a real challenge. Not only do you have to have patience, you have to imagine what the finished product is going to look like, and as you are working along, you want to make sure everything is just right. It’s amazing to think about God knitting us together!

Every person ever conceived is another unique human being created by God. Every person born also has free will, so we can choose whether or not to kill other humans. The Ten Commandments instructs us “Though Shalt Not Kill,” and then we come back to “free will.”

One thing I have noticed about life and mankind is, if people CAN do something they will, even if it’s bad for them or others.

Abortion truly is the biggest destroyer of humans in all of history. My mother’s family was wiped out by the Nazis, as were many other Jewish families, around 7 million of them. This pales in comparison to the number of humans killed in the womb every single day, 115,000, and every single year, 43 MILLION.

If it weren’t for abortion, and if nothing else would have gone wrong, this year, I would have 3 living children on this earth instead of 2. I believe she would have been another daughter, she would be 36 years old, and I named her after my mother, Isolde.

Since my daughter was killed 36 years ago, 1.5 BILLION humans, God’s creations, God’s children, have joined Isolde in heaven.

Mother Theresa said:

The greatest destroyer of love and peace is abortion, which is war against the child. The mother doesn’t learn to love, but kills to solve her own problems. Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching its people to love, but to use any violence to get what they want.”

God knit us together, one at a time. Because of abortion, many humans won’t survive their mother’s womb, and they won’t see the light of day, alive.

Let’s take a moment today to pray for the 115,000 people who won’t have the opportunity to live on earth today. Let’s thank God that he created us, and that we were born.

I also pray that people do everything they can to speak for, and defend the defenseless, whenever possible.
