Do you remember the fearless reporting of David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt who helped expose Planned Parenthood selling baby parts? Now, California Attorney General, Zavier Becerra has filed felony charges against them which could put them in prison for years. All for standing up for life and justice. Please pray for them and please sign the petition in their defense.

Like me, do you love to stand up for life, truth, and justice? Proverbs 31:8, 9 says: “Open thy mouth for the dumb in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction. Open thy mouth, judge righteously, and plead the cause of the poor and needy.” Here is a petition you may like to sign to stand up for life. (I’ll send you two more inn separate emails).
Tragically, over 4,000 babies are aborted every day in our nation. That's over 1.6 million every year!
The Supreme Court admits in Roe that once Congress establishes the personhood of unborn children, they must be protected by the 14th Amendment to the Constitution which explicitly says: "nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty or property." Therefore, the passing of this LIFE AT CONCEPTION ACT can end abortion in America!

God loves to ask questions. We notice that when Jesus came to earth that He loved to ask questions too. Of course, God always know the answer, but He wants to hear a personal answer from us.
The first question God asks in the Bible is “Where are you?” After Adam and Eve took of the forbidden fruit, they realized they had sinned. When they heard the LORD God walking in the garden they freaked out and hid themselves among the trees. Genesis 2:9 says: “The LORD God called to the man and said to him, ‘Where are you?’" God knew where they were, but He wanted to hear from Adam and Eve.
God still asks this question to you and me. “Where am I?” “Where are you?”
Are you hiding from My presence? My sweet fellowship? Are you too busy to hear My Word? Do you think My thoughts? Are you obedient to My ways or are you more in sync with society around you (Isaiah 55:8, 9)?
God knows the answer, but He wants you to answer Him. He keeps calling to us in the midst of this distorted and deceived society in which we live. He constantly calls us back to Him, His truth, and His ways.
What is your answer?

A 15-year old schoolboy in Minnesota wrote this prayer:
For this great nation under God
Finds mention of Him very odd.
If scripture now the class recites,
It violates the Bill of Rights.
And anytime my head I bow
Becomes a Federal matter now.
Our hair can be purple, orange, or green,
That's no offense; it's a freedom scene.
The law is specific, the law is precise.
Prayers spoken aloud are a serious vice.
For praying in a public hall
Might offend someone with no faith at all.
In silence alone we must meditate,
God's name is prohibited by the State.
We're allowed to cuss and dress like freaks,
And pierce our noses, tongues, and cheeks.
They may outlaw guns, but FIRST the Bible,
To quote the Good Book makes me liable.
We can elect a pregnant Senior Queen,
And the “unwed daddy,” our Senior King.
It's “inappropriate” to teach right from wrong,
We're taught that such “judgments” do not belong.
We can get our condoms and birth controls,
Study witchcraft, vampires, and totem poles.
But the Ten Commandments are not allowed,
No word of God must reach this crowd.
It's scary here I must confess,
When chaos reigns, the school's a mess.
So, Lord, this silent plea I make,
Should I be shot, my soul please take!
My father was one of five boys who have now all passed away. I remember my Uncle Eion, the eldest son. He faced many challenged in his life. At one time, he owned the biggest house and biggest car in the small New Zealand town in which we lived. One day, this home burned to the ground. Later he became bankrupt. He also got diabetes, which resulted in the amputation of first one leg and then the other leg. During all these trials, along with many others, and no legs, he continually confessed with a smile on his face, “I’m the luckiest man alive!”
What problems are you facing today? More importantly, what’s your attitude? We determine our lives, not so much in the circumstances we face, but our attitude to them.
I remember one time seeking to comfort my eldest son who had just lost millions of dollars in a big project he planned. “How are you getting on with all these problems?” I asked. His reply? “Mother, I don’t have problems, only challenges!”
Be encouraged today from 1 Thessalonians 5:18: “In EVERY THING give thanks; for this is the WILL OF GOD in Christ Jesus concerning you.”
You certainly may not feel like thanking the Lord during your difficulties, but no matter what you feel, God’s way always works! And giving into your feelings never helps.
