Secrets

After being on vacation for a few days, I was way behind on reading my favorite blogs. Tonight I have just about caught up. (Boy, y'all sure do "talk" a lot!) Anyway, one of my favorite blogs to read is Lysa TerKeurst's from "Proverbs 31 Ministries." She always has something good to read whether it's spiritual, personal or funny (sometimes a combination of all). Recently she shared one of her deepest secrets. Why would she do that? In hopes that it helps someone out there to learn from her mistake, but also to help those who share the same secret.

You see, when Lysa was a teenager she found out she was pregnant. She was unmarried, and her family had just suffered a great loss. How could she cause them more pain by telling them she was pregnant? So she got an abortion. She shares her story here about how the Lord has helped her to heal and how He can use something for good that Satan intended for evil.

Even if you've never had an abortion yourself I'm sure you know someone who has (even if you don't know that they have). Read her story ... it will be worth your time. Oh, and while you're there read the comments. They are heart wrenching, and at the same time inspiring.

You know, it's one of the unique things about Christianity, it's OK to admit we messed up, in fact, it's kind of commanded to at least tell God. Then God, who's in control anyway, turns it all around for His own glory and our good. Makes you wonder why the rest of the world is raleing, doesn't it?

Jeremiah 29:11

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
