04 Oct First Wednesday! Redemptive (Ps 130:7) by Jeff Grabosky
Challenge: First Wednesday! Wear your “REMEMBER The Unborn – Jer 1:5” jersey sometime today as a public witness in unity with our 6,127 LIFE Runner teammates around the world, All In Christ for Pro-Life! Post photos with #RememberTheUnborn and share at liferunners.org/photos.
With the Lord there is mercy, and fullness of redemption. ~ Ps 130:7
Reflection: We all have sinned and are therefore in need of redemption. This is such a beautiful penitential Psalm that grants comfort to all of us in need of mercy. God not only forgives us our sins, but how He also grants us unexpected graces. For a post-abortion mother who is redeemed, she will have the grace to choose life for her next child. Half of abortions are repeat abortions. God can truly turn any situation into a blessing. He is SO good. Post-abortion LIFE Runners embrace wearing “REMEMBER The Unborn” jersey as redemptive and healing. It is up to us, however, to repent of our sins and to trust in his goodness and mercy. God is waiting for us to return to Him. He will show us great mercy and reconcile us to Himself if we only recognize our sin and ask for forgiveness. We can take confidence in His mercy and should be quick to share this good news for post-abortion healing. Photo: LIFE Runners praying over Carhart’s Bellevue NE abortion facility.

Inspiration: “Never lose hope in divine forgiveness, however great your sin. With God there can always be a change of heart, if you acknowledge your offense.” ~ St. Ambrose
