Do Something

white crosses 1

To do nothing is to do something…

Last Thursday the sad news came that little Noah Chamberlin who had been missing for over a week had been found dead a mile and a half from his home. Please pray for his family.
I have a grandson about the same age as little Noah and my heart breaks for this family I cannot imagine the grief and sorrow they must feel

On Friday January 23rd  we were reminded as we have been on this day, for the last 43 years of over 52,000,000 little ones whose lives never had a chance to begin….I follow many Christian blogs and websites and I was disappointed to see very little notice or recognition of this sad day in our history. The overwhelming sadness I felt at the news of little Noah’s death must be minuscule compared to the sadness God feels for the loss of all his little ones. Have we forgotten? Has time dulled the impact?

I hope not.

But if you are a follower of Christ, if you call yourself Christian, I want to encourage you, no challenge you to take action against this unconscionable crime taking place in this country. To do something…

There are many ways you can do something..

Write a letter, send an email, make a phone call, to your local, state and federal, government representatives.
Volunteer at a pregnancy care center, your church, or other organizations that support life.i

Pray against the sexual immorality that is so prevalent in our country,  pray for salvation of those who are blinded by sin. Many abortions occur because of sex outside of marriage.

Pray that those in the abortion industry and those who support them, would know the truth about what they are doing to these innocent lives. Not just tissue but a precious life.

Pray for change in our government for godly men and women at every level to be willing to stand up for what is right. Pray for the removal of those who support abortion for the gain of power and money.

Pray this would change. That sometime in the near future we would be able to celebrate another date. The day this terrible decision is ended, sanctity of live is once more protected.

Most of all allow your heart to care about this. God does….

If you and I do nothing the blood is on our hands just surely as it is those who cause the death of these little ones.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer once said
“To do nothing is to do something
To take no action is to take action.”
Will you do something?

“Now at last they were beginning chapter One of the great story no one on earth has read: which goes on forever”. I love this line at the end of the Last Battle by C.S. Lewis. Everyone has a story to tell and ultimately we are all part of a greater story that someday will be revealed in full. “ For now, we can only see a dim and blurry picture of things”. ( 1 Corinthians 13:12). My story is not remarkable, although the events I have had the privilege in my life to witness have been. I grew up in the south “the land of cotton” and the old times there were definitely not forgotten. I remember where I was and what I was doing when JFK and Martin Luther King were murdered in Dallas and in Memphis. I remember the Civil Rights movement, a time of great unrest and change. I remember the dawning of the “Age of Aquarius” in the late 1960’s. It was also the dawning of my love for playing music, a love that has stayed with me throughout my life. If my life were chapters in a book one would tell of my precious bride of 20+ years who endured so much and stood beside me through the good and the bad. One would describe the blessings of being a father and a grandfather. One would tell about how despite being “the wretch” the song sings about God was able to change me, and use me to make a difference in others lives, make me a servant in His church, and surround me with friends all because of His goodness. All part of a story that has had many twists and turns. I think of the words Jimmy Buffet wrote in one of my favorite songs "As a dreamer of dreams and a travelin’ man I have chalked up many a mile Read dozens of books about heroes and crooks And I learned much from both of their styles" And so it is true for me. But in all of my travels and all I have read and experienced nothing compares to where I am headed. The place where my story here ends and the story that goes on forever begins! "" I am confident that He who began a good work in you will carry it on until completion until the day He returns". Philippians 1:6 My hope is that as we all run our race that in some small way my words will encourage and speak to you, as your story is being written. And draw you ever closer to the One who loves you. Further up and further in!

    Only the Lord hears the cry of the unborn and of the children who have been taken advantage of.

    Matthew 18:10

    “See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that in heaven their angels always see the face of my Father who is in heaven.

    I have blogged on abortion on my own blog from time to time. It breaks my heart to hear about little Noah just as it breaks my heart over abortions and God will punish those that do not repent. I have tried to educate people that I meet, but these days I don’t go out much because I am disabled do to severe chronic pain. I now turn to the internet and through Facebook and WordPress I do my best to reach out and educate others. I hope you don’t mind but I am going to reblog this on my Rough Christian blog. God bless!
