27 Feb Life Scars (Ps 34:19) by Abby Johnson
The Lord is close to the brokenhearted. ~ Ps 34:19
Reflection: Many of us in the Pro-Life movement are wounded. Many of us have had abortions. Many of us have walked our friends into abortion facilities. Many have suffered miscarriages. We are wounded… but we are healers. Every time I go out to an abortion facility to pray and do sidewalk advocacy, I am reminded of my two children that I aborted. I am also reminded of the thousands of children who were killed on my watch. I am reminded of the blood on my hands. But more than anything, I am reminded that I am forgiven. Praise God for His mercy! I thank God for my “life scars.” God can use all of us to minister to others, no matter what we have experienced in our life. Praise God that He can turn our sins and hurt into glory for HIM!

The huge “REMEMBER The Unborn” banner in the photo was on the billboard next to Carhart’s abortion facility in Bellevue NE.
Challenge: Don’t fear your hurt. Use it to help others. Let Christ heal your heart and your grief. Let him work a miracle in your life.
* Make plans to bring Pro-Life and pro-choice family and friends to Abby’s movie Unplanned on opening night (Mar 29th) to help it stay in theaters longer, impacting hearts and minds for saving lives! Abby gives an opening shoutout for her LIFE Runners teammates in this Unplanned movie promo.
Pray to end abortion (Creed). Witness with all types of “REMEMBER The Unborn” gear (Order). Give jerseys to Students and Missions ($10 once or monthly). Thank You!
Inspiration: “I will extol You, O Lord, for You have lifted me up, and have not let my enemies rejoice over me. O Lord my God, I cried to You for help, and You healed me.” ~ Psalm 30:1-2
All In Christ,
