This weekend has been filled with rainbows and I’m not talking about the LGBT community. The rainbow was God’s promise that he would never destroy the earth as he did during the days of Noah. It’s a sign of promise, hope, and prosperity.

So I posted this photo on our Instagram and the conversation exploded. There were many different views, but I want to dive a little deeper into why I think women should not propose to men. My views have nothing to do with whether it is right or wrong but rather a question of whether you want to build a relationship on a foundation where the woman takes the lead.
The Bible must be taught in a way that is practical for everyday living. Many people don’t understand how to make King James relevant to their lives today. The Message bible does a great job at breaking the Bible down in a language that we all can understand. But it still speaks to us through the lens of people who lived over 2000 years ago. The Bible declares, “They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony…” – Revelation 12:11. Simply put, we have the ability to overcome anything by the blood of Jesus and by the testimony of those who have walked through difficulty in victory. This is why it is so important that you share your testimony because there are people whose life depends on it.
In this first part of, The Power of The Blood Of Jesus through Millenial Eyes, we will focus on the importance of pleading the blood of Jesus. The blood of Jesus is a technological system that invokes real protection and provision for our lives. It’s a proactive measure used to create a spiritual barrier around the things and people it was directed to.
I remember an old friend of mine telling me that she was pregnant. Amazing news right – wrong, well at least not for her at the time. She was married and already had a few kids and a one-year-old. Her heart was set on having an abortion and she wanted to know my thoughts on the matter. I told her-HELL NO!
She then told me that I didn’t understand. She just had a baby and it was too soon. She asked me what if I got pregnant back to back would I still have the baby and I said yes. At the time I too had just given birth to my second daughter. Anyway, to cut a long story short she had the abortion and I did get pregnant again; literally 12 months after the birth of my second daughter. Here I was, in the same shoe, she found herself a year ago.
So what did I do…..
This would have been my third child and it happened soon after my second and I was excited!!!!!! I had my baby!
I’ve had abortions before- yes I did. I didn’t want to bring the babies into a world where their mother wasn’t ready for them. Every reason that was ever created to justify abortion is all selfish. I thought after they were gone, I would feel better but I didn’t. The guilt of the abortion nearly killed me and it took a very long time for me to forgive myself.
I never wanted children. When my first daughter was born I was happy but I vowed that I wouldn’t have any more kids because I grew up with many siblings and I didn’t really like the life my parents had – I didn’t want to be like them. But here I am four kids later and loving it.
So what changed?
After I gave my life to God for real for real, he showed me the other side of parenting. Through my relationship with God I realized that I could be a good parent and that just because my parents weren’t what I wanted, they were what I needed.
It took a lot of prayers and deliverance sessions for me to completely be free from the guilt and resentment I had for myself because of what I had done and I promised God that I would never do it again and I haven’t and I won’t.
Here are three reasons why you shouldn’t have an abortion:
1. Children Unlock Gifts Within You.
After the birth of my second daughter, there was a strong desire to sew that came upon me. I always wanted to be a clothing designer but I couldn’t sew. One day I remembered that my grandmother had a sewing machine that she didn’t use. I bought it from her and the rest is history. I never took one sewing lesson or used a sewing machine but it was like I was doing it all my life. I started a business creating baby headbands that developed into creating clothing for my daughters, myself and others.
2. Having an abortion locks you into a covenant with Molech.
It’s a human sacrifice. You are sacrificing your baby for your career, your reputation, your relationships; but you are clueless to the fact that the act itself brings you into covenant with a demon. Molech was the Canaanite god associated with child sacrifice. Child sacrifice is the ritualistic killing of children in order to please or appease a god or supernatural beings in order to achieve a desired result. Don’t do it sis!
3. Children Come With Their Own Supply.
Many people use the lack of finances as a reason why abortion is a great choice-they don’t want the child to suffer. Ironic, because they do suffer death at the hand of their own mother! After my second daughter, God showed me all the reasons why abortion was a terrible idea. She lacked nothing! I can remember being on the delivery table and getting a $2,500.00 deposit just for her. I got a surprise baby shower from strangers. Our medical bills were all paid in FULL and none of this happened because of my husband and I alone it was ALL GOD!!!!!!
God showed me that he cared about my concerns and that if we would only trust him to do what he says, we would see that even in our mistakes, he’s able to make it all work together for good.
Now I’m not a fool and I understand that there may be times when an abortion may absolutely be necessary due to medical reasons. I understand. But I’m speaking to those of you concerned about the money, or being a single parent, or your career- please understand that God has considered all of that and he still has a plan for you. His plan for you is a prosperous one but you have to commit your situation to him.
We all face different things in life but I just want you to know that you are not alone.

We are all misunderstood by someone. Conflict is caused by misunderstandings between people and often times the misunderstood are mishandled and sometimes mislead. But although we misunderstand people we do the most injustice to God because we misunderstand him every day. Even those who’ve studied theology have yet to grasp who God really is. God is the most misunderstood of them all.
