Lifted From Destruction


A very brave mother who chose life over abortion stood in front of the City Council and a packed chamber while I spoke about what Cities4Life does on the sidewalks of the abortion center for the unborn and the abortion-minded women. When I spoke about the precious baby who might not have been here if our ministry was not on that sidewalk, this wonderful woman held her child high in the air so that everyone could see her. The entire chamber burst into cheers and applause and I lost 30 seconds of my carefully crafted three-minute speech.


That was okay. I remained silent and let the image of that little baby being triumphantly displayed in her mother's outstretched arms speak more eloquently than any words I had prepared.


In the end, that is what it is all about. Human life is precious. Sacred. Imbued with God's imprint. How blessed I am to know this woman and to have played a part in the precious life lifted from destruction by the hand of God Himself.

Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? And not one of them is forgotten before God. Why, even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not; you are of more value than many sparrows
