i hope i never get tired of explaining why i am prolife... or of listening to the heartbreaking situations that brought people to that moment of crisis where they weighed their child's life in their hands - deciding whether or not to allow it to continue. i hope i never get tired of responding with love, even when faced with anger or hurt... especially when faced with misconceptions about my character or blind hatred.
This is too important to let my pride get in the way.
i was encouraged this week to not let the fear of rejection keep me quiet... & i think that's good advice. It hurts to be rejected or marginalized or dismissed - but sometimes we have to look past our own little hurt to the heart of a Father who is cheering for us as we step out in obedience.
i hope i never get tired of obeying...
...but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. Phil. 3:12b-14
