Life & Death

What makes any of us deserve to live? Yet what makes any of us not? As soon as we were conceived, even before God knew us. Just read Psalm 139 if you do not believe that. God knew me before my mom and dad were even born. Some statistic says that one-third of my generation has been aborted, denied the right to life. Whether that statistic is actually true or not, I couldn’t tell you, but just think about if it was.

Our workforce would be almost one-third bigger. Social security might not be such a mess if we had that many more people paying into it. But besides that, Maybe I’d have another friend. Some say that we might have aborted the child that would have grown up to find the cure for cancer. I say, why me? Why wasn’t I one of those that has been aborted? My heart hurts when I think about the babies that have been aborted.

Within my extended family I know of a baby that was aborted, and I know of others. Mothers who have to live with themselves. Yet, why do I live, if so many others have to die? Why?

I live to tell their story. I live to be their advocate. I live for them. I live to learn how to comfort and grieve with their mothers. I live to tell their mothers of God’s forgiveness, of His love, of His mercy, and of His strength to continue on. I will live, and I will not be silent except to listen to their mothers. I will live for them.

About Melanie

My Being Purpose Statement: As a part of Christ's Bride and as one of His precious treasures whom He redeemed with His precious blood, I purpose in my heart to love and adore Him with all of my heart, soul, and mind (Matthew 22:37). I want to be beautiful in the sight of my Saviour, Jesus Christ. I will therefore pursue holiness (1 Peter 1:16) that I might worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness (1 Chronicles 16:29, Psalms 96:9) and go and proclaim His love, sacrifice and salvation to others who have not heard that I may have the beautiful feet of them that bring glad tidings of good things (Isaiah 52:7, Romans 10:15). My Life Purpose Statement: I desire to serve my Redeemer and Savior Jesus Christ throughout my entire life by ministering to girls and women. I pray that I will be able to bring many girls and women to the Cross of Christ that they may find salvation from a loving and gracious Savior. It is my heart’s desire to encourage girls and women who know the Savior to deepen their relationship with Him and to fall more and more in love with Him. I also want to serve women by assisting them in their everyday lives whether I am rolling up my sleeves to work alongside them or am connecting them with people, ministries, and or resources that will be helpful and beneficial to them. By God’s grace and power, through His Spirit, and for His glory will I endeavor to fulfill this purpose
