Jer_1:4-5; " How the word of the Lord came unto me, saying: Before I formed you in the belly I knew you, and before you came forth out of the womb I sanctified you.."

Scripture tells us that we are 'known' by the Lord prior to conception. Isn't it amazing? Before we are born we are sanctified by the Lord. Incredible! The above scripture is the one many use to give us comfort in believing that the aborted children are safe in the Father's hands in Heaven. It is also interesting that the Lord knew us prior to coming into our mother's belly. I will say that I believe the child I aborted (Aubrey) truly had an identity that even I knew and felt. When I conceived Samantha God gave me an experience of feeling her presence even before conception and then witnessing the moment her spirit came into my body. I know it is unusual but i honestly felt her enter my body and God showed me that he fused our souls together. I believe He did that to truly show me the power of conception and birth.

God knits us into the womb.

Psa_139:13-16; "Truly you have formed my most being: you knit me in my mother's womb. I give you thanks that I am fearfully, and wonderfully made; wonderful are your works."

I really don't know how God can be any clearer than these two scriptures. Why should we believe in the Sanctity of Life? Because it is clearly stated in scripture. And when God creates something we don't assume it is our RIGHT OR CHOICE to just be able to tear it apart. Imagine the Lord God is standing before you knitting something . Do we have the right to take it and rip it apart? Do we have the legal choice to complain about it not being perfect? I believe that if the Lord hands us a sweater to wear that He knitted we don't say "i don't like the color. I am not ready to wear that sweater, maybe a few years later you can knit me a sweater. I don't want to wear the sweater it will make me look fat or change my style." God has created each life to be unique. We humble ourselves to take His gifts because even when they are unplanned or not wanted by us they are still HIS PLANS for us....God knits life. God knits situations for us and asks us to suspend our plans and image and timing for HIS. What is incredible is that even when we do take the knitting needles out of His hands and rip apart the threads and throw His gift in the garbage, He still forgives us and loves us.......Still, I have learned from the gravest mistake of my life that when God hands me something He has knitted I will wear it proudly even if it doesn't fit, isn't the right color or is missing a sleeve. We are fearfully and wonderfully made and should celebrate each and every stitch God the Heavenly Knitter....

It is an amazing concept isn't it? That was the very scripture that opened my eyes concerning abortion. When I was a teen, I thought it was the women's choice or right. But that scripture stopped me in my tracks and immediately opened my understanding.

That is true Deanna, and as you said, there have been times I have not wanted what God has given me. God is so good to us, better than we deserve!
