Filled Borders & Empty Wombs

“Truly no man can ransom another, or give to God the price of his life, for the ransom of their life is costly and can never suffice” (Psalm 49:7, 8).

Let them that can say life does not matter come forward. The price of life before a holy God is a serious thing. Him who planted man in the womb, I say, regards their life as precious before Him. Yes! “And now the LORD says. he who formed me from the womb to be his servant, to bring Jacob back to him; and that Israel might be gathered to him—for I am honored in the eyes of the LORD, and my God has become my strength” (Isa. 49:5).

Yes, hear this: “Listen to me, O coastlands, and give attention, you peoples from afar. The LORD called me from the womb, from the body of my mother he named my name” (Isa. 49:1).

So then, don’t cry about kids at the border if you don’t care about them in the womb.

  1. My dad’s parents wanted me to be aborted as he was young and my mother was only 16 when I was conceived….his parents were “well to do” types and their son(my dad) had a casual relationship with my mother one summer. of course my mother’s mum said no way to an abortion. Anyway they forbade my dad from continuing on the relationship with mum. So I was born without a dad around as so many are. Mum fell in love with a man 20 years her senior when I was 3 months old and I was given his family name. They kept it a secret from me that I was really Dennis Andrews–the whole town knew as well, but they kept it hidden from me.
    When I was a few years old in the Lord at about 30 years of age I was given Jeremiah 1:5 by three total strangers in a two week period.
    “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you;
    Before you were born I sanctified you;
    I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”
    Then a few years later at 32yrs of age two more strangers gave me two separate Scriptures which at the time were nice but nothing else.
    Psalm 27:10
    When my father and my mother forsake me,
    Then the Lord will take care of me.
    Isa 63:16
    Doubtless You are our Father,
    Though Abraham was ignorant of us,
    And Israel does not acknowledge us.
    You, O Lord, are our Father;
    Our Redeemer from Everlasting is Your name.
    A few months later my mother asked me to fly to her state and stay as she wanted to tell me something!!
    I was experiencing difficulty with pastors and having a hard time trusting them….she thought I needed to know something.
    So once there , it took her 3 days to get the courage to tell me the big secret everyone but I knew….
    Poor mum…secrets are terrible things.
    Of course I was full of peace and forgave her for not telling me and loved on her with understanding.
    But over the next few weeks there….I would sit with my Heavenly Father out in the bush and WONDER at His love for me..the bastard child who should have been aborted…but was adopted into a family instead. The one He knew in the womb and even before the womb He knew me….I cried and wept much.
    bless you brother!!

    1. Ah, dear brother! Thank you so much for taking time to share your story. Overwhelming! Even teary. What a grace. I’m glad that you forgave Mum & had the peace of Christ.

      And like you’ve concluded saying, “adopted” brought that biblical truth to mind that—I, too, was a bastard in my sin, yet, God through Christ, has adopted me into His family. And you, too, brother. Heirs with Christ. Adopted sons and daughters of God!

      Very nice to meet you, Den.

      One thing, though. Are you comfortable I approve this comment to the public domain, since it had some personal matters?

      I’m willing to leave your message private with me, if you like. Let me know.
