Turning Shame into Glory

hiding in shame

“How long, O you sons of men, will you turn my glory to shame? How long will you love worthlessness and seek falsehood.”  Psalm 4:2

David wrote the verse above as a question to men who were speaking falsely about him and were treating him as an outlaw instead of who he truly was destined to be.

This Psalm rose a question in me:

How many of God’s children with a divine destiny are hiding in shame and believing lies of unworthiness?

Could it be when we hide and agree with shame and unworthiness, that we are actually denying God glory?

David had a divine destiny and he knew who God had called him to be.

Those with abortion-wounds often believe the lie that they no longer are worthy of the calling on their lives, that they are no longer worthy to be used by God.   Living in denial, they withdraw, and hide under a cloak of shame, denying God the glory due His name.  This isn’t just those wounded from abortion.  Much of the body of Christ is living in hiding, living in a state of false humility that claims I am unworthy to be used of God, I am unworthy because of my past and what I have done.

In sense, turning glory to shame, loving worthlessness and seeking falsehood.   And God says, “Enough.”

He wants His children to rise up out of hiding.  He wants you to know who you are in Him, as a son or daughter of the King, Your Father, who adores you.  He wants you to know you are worthy because He said you were worthy when He sent His son to die for you (yes, you!).  He wants all His children to stop agreeing with falsehood, with the lies of the enemy.  You are His child.  He has a purpose for you, a great plan for you.  His heart is for you to fulfill what He created you to do!

Like David, you are royalty.  Your destiny is one of a child of the King, the Father’s beloved son or daughter.  You are worthy.

“How long, O you sons of men, will you turn my glory to shame? How long will you love worthlessness and seek falsehood.”  Psalm 4:2

Father, forgive me for not allowing you to turn shame into glory.  Forgive me for agreeing with lies of unworthiness. Oh Lord, turn my shame into your glory and reveal my worthiness in you.  Lord, open my eyes to see your glory and how you turn shame into a declaration of praise.  I pray I would no longer agree with the lies of the enemy but would see my worth through your eyes.  In Jesus’ name, Amen.




Redeeming the Day



“He provided redemption for His people; He ordained His covenant forever—holy and awesome is His name.”  Psalm 111:9

Father, thank you that when You provided redemption, Jesus did not just pay in part, but in whole.  Thank you for redeeming even the day and providing hope for those hurting from the day of their abortion.  We ask for You to redeem the day and change what was full of death into a day of life.  We ask for all things to be made new—even the day.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

A friend recently told me of someone she knows who every year on the anniversary day of her abortion,  is stricken with sadness, grief and unbearable sorrow over her choice.  This friend has the date in her calendar, to remind her to call this beloved girl and comfort her in her pain.

This is all too real and common.  We all have birthdays we celebrate.  The lack of a birthdate for one created to live is unnatural and it leaves an aching hole in the heart of those living with abortion-wounds. The anniversary date of the day chosen to end the life of their child—it is almost too much to bear.

But Jesus.  The blood of Jesus is not limited to redeeming one’s sins or health.  The blood of Jesus seeps into every pour and every aching crevice, filling and completing the healing until all is restored—even the day.

Today, Emily Donels graciously shares her story of how the Lord redeemed the day for her.  Thank you, Emily, for sharing the Lord’s redemption power in your life.

April 27th used to be a day I dreaded.  I was so gripped in knots the entire month that I didn’t feel I could breathe again until May. 

In the earlier years of my healing journey with my abortion-wounded heart, I would try to do something that I felt honored the daughter I aborted.  From planting flowers in my flower bed on that day to placing a plaque on the wall of the National Memorial for the Unborn in Chattanooga, TN, to just driving down to the memorial so I would have a safe place I felt like I could mourn.

It wasn’t until after my own Deeper Still retreat that I felt the Lord truly redeem April 28th for me.  I finally believed my Heavenly Father had reconciled my relationship with my daughter, Hannah.  That day went from me feeling I needed to atone that day to just being in sweet remembrance of my daughter that day.  Twenty years to that exact day, I was serving on the Deeper Still Spring Retreat team and I was assigned to lead the sharing time during the memorial service.  I opened up by sharing that I couldn’t imagine any better way to honor my precious Hannah than by being there with each of them (the participants) and telling them how proud I was to be Hannah’s mom and that I longed for the day to meet her face to face.

The following year, the Lord put it on my heart to return to the abortion clinic for the first time in 21 years to the date.  I was joined there by my sisters and brothers in Christ to pray a prayer of repentance to cleanse and heal the land.  That day I left a bundle of flowers representing life in honor of Hannah’s life.  God not only redeemed me, He redeemed the day.

Your Invitation to Breakthrough

Open-Door with scripture

“Hearing it all laid out like that, they quieted down.  And then, as it sank in, they started praising God.  ‘It’s really happened!  God has broken through to the other nations, opened them up to Life!’”  Acts 11: 18 (MSG)

Father, thank you for breaking through to the nations with the good news of life, healing and freedom.  Many were skeptical but it is happening and we give you praise, honor and glory. Father, we thank you for resources and provision to complete the good work you have begun to bring healing and lasting freedom to the abortion -wounded in the U.S, China and around the world.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen. 

Again, we sat across the table and shared the vision the Lord had given us of sharing the good news of the healing message of Jesus Christ with the abortion-wounded to the people of the country of China.  And again, we were met with opposition and skepticism as we were told, “Don’t go.”  “This is too big.”  This can’t be done.”  “It will never work.”

We sat in bewilderment and disbelief at what we heard.  How could we not go when the Lord had said “GO”?  Plus there is the great commission to consider—“Go and make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19)…He never said just go to the easy ones.

When Peter and Paul began preaching the gospel to nations outside of the nation of Israel, many marveled, especially the religious leaders of the day. It was a bias of their countrymen that the gospel was for only their nation.  Thankfully, the truth that His gospel is for everyone prevailed as Paul led the charge and Peter gained revelation.  Peter and Paul are essentially a part of all of our stories of faith and salvation.

We cannot even imagine in present times someone saying, “Jesus’ message of healing isn’t for that group of people.”  However, that was precisely what we were hearing as we shared what God was leading us to do for His Chinese people.  Only it wasn’t because of bias, as in the case of Peter above, but rather a case of unbelief.

As Peter shared His story of all the Lord had revealed to him and done to set those of other nations free, the religious leaders turned from sullen to ecstatic with praise.  We are finding the same.  God is at work in the nation of China to heal His abortion-wounded church.  The wounds are vast and deep and the need is great.

How can a nation be free to love others when a majority of the body of Christ is walking around wounded? How can the church be healthy and strong and vibrant when living with hidden sin and full of people living in silent shame, guilt and condemnation? (The same could be asked of the American church as well.)

God is breaking through to the nations with His healing message of grace and redemption. He cannot be contained.  He wants all His children healed, restored and free.  The exciting part is that you have the opportunity to be a part of someone’s story!

Peter and Paul listened to the Lord and as a result, the gospel message spread to the nations.  We listened to the Lord rather than to men, and we are seeing God do the miraculous in front of our eyes for the nation of China.  In the last year and a half,  there have been two Chinese retreats in the United States and one in the country of China.  There are two more Chinese retreats scheduled for this year and we believe this is just the beginning of what God wants to do.

At our banquet we will hear some of the stories from the United States and the nation of China.  We would love to invite you to be a part of the story.  How incredible is it to think we can be a part of someone’s story across the world as they find hope and freedom and healing for the first time?  It’s amazing.  Jesus is breaking through to the nations.  Are you ready to join Him?

If you would like to make a donation to Deeper Still, go to the banquet to hear live testimonies of how God is moving in this ministry or see how you might become involved through prayer or volunteer opportunities to be a part of the story, please visit godeeperstill.org and find us on the Facebook page Deeper Still and Instagram  @GoDeeperStill .





Open Doors {Prayer for Fundraising Banquet}

“Behold, I have set before you an open door that no one can shut.” -Revelations 3:8

Father, we thank you for all your amazing works.  We pray that on March 6, we will see Your glory unfold before our eyes as men and women share their story of redemption and healing in front of hundreds at the Deeper Still fundraising banquet.  We pray for the table hosts as they are preparing now and are inviting guests.  Lord, encourage them and we pray they would boldly proclaim your healing message of Jesus Christ with others who will potentially attend the event.  Would you open every door and opportunity for every person you want to be there to attend. May nothing hinder all you want to do that night.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.  

On Tuesday, March 6, 2018, three people will share their testimony of God’s redemptive work from a stage.  These testimonies are powerful and will be life-changing for every single person in the room including the ones giving the testimony.

The first time a door was opened for me to share my testimony publicly was at a fundraiser for a local pro-life pregnancy center, the Hope Resource Center.

I sat trembling as the announcer called my name. Inhaling deeply and exhaling slowly, I rose up and walked to the podium.  The only noise in the room was my heart pounding.  Only a few steps were needs to reach the podium, but it seemed like a mile.  In reality, I had taken many steps the audience couldn’t see that night to be free enough to walk those few.

Again, I breathed.  The moment my feet touched the stage, I heard the Lord whisper in His love, “I am right here with you.”  Spiritually, I could see Jesus standing right beside me holding my hand.   Smiling at His loving hand, He infused courage to tell the story–His story of redemptive love.

The Lord gave me an open door that night–an open door to invite others into His story. An open door for others with abortion wounds in the room to hear the truth of His healing love and mercy.  An open door for those with critical hearts to be softened as they hear how abortion affects those who have walked through doors of death.  An open door for those on the side of choice to hear the reality of how this choice chokes life out of the clutches of those who have chosen abortion.



He has set before us an open door. On March 6, this door is open.  An open door to share His great love with others.  An opportunity for His children to hear He is a God of abundant and extravagant mercy and grace–far more than we could ever ask, think or imagine.  That is who our God is.  And this is the opportunity we have–to share the reckless never failing and never-ending love of our Lord Jesus Christ with a hopeless and dying world who is desperate for the truth.

We just need to walk through the door.



Living Pain Free

old shack with scripture

“In this world you will have trouble, but take heart, I have overcome the world.”  1 John 16:33

Father, No matter what we face or the pain we endure, you have overcome.  Thank you for your promise of living pain free in heaven and thank you for how you use pain as an indicator of a need for healing.  Lord, heal those areas of our hearts in pain and bring us into greater levels of freedom as we look to you our Healer.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

The sun shone brightly overhead as we headed toward the East Tennessee mountains for a day of hiking in God’s beautiful creation.  While driving, we passed a billboard that boasted a promise unattainable this side of heaven.  The billboard read, “Live Pain Free”.   The car sped past the sign blurring the details of what the sign was promoting.  Regardless the remedy, it couldn’t possibly prove to extinguish all pain to the point of living pain free.

There is no magic pill or formula to alleviate all pain.  If there was a magic pill, would we want it? Perhaps we would take the pill promising pain-free living, but consider this: to feel no pain is to not feel at all—a numbing.  Pain is the symptom of a deeper wound.  It is the body’s way of crying out for healing.  Pain indicates our need for healing and our need for a Healer.  Without pain, we would be oblivious to the deep bleeding happening within and our need for the only Surgeon who can tend to the wounds.  Unspoken pain manifests in a way that mirrors the mess inside.  Pain triggers our awareness for the need for healing.  It is never isolated.  Pain spreads and seeps begging for care—pointing to our need for the Healer.

Once we begin to seek the Healer in response to our pain, His response is quick and vast.  He pursues the root of the pain when we invite Him into the deepest area of our hurts.  With our permission, He advances until all is healed.  Less and less pain until eventually all is healed.  The final healing may not manifest this side of heaven, but there are levels of healing where indeed we can live exponentially pain free.

The promise of living pain free cannot be found in a pill or earthly physician.  Only the Great Physician can lead us on this journey.  And in the journey, we will have trouble.  There will be suffering.  There will be pain, but we can take heart knowing His ever-loving arms and His presence overcomes it all.

He is the promise that has overcome the pain, He has overcome the world.


Just Say No!

sword pic with words


“But Paul, greatly annoyed, turned and said to the spirit, “I command you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her.” Acts 16:18

Father, thank you for the authority You have given us as children of God.  Father, I pray we would learn to renew our minds to the truth of Your Word and recognize when our flesh or the enemy tries to crowd in on our thoughts with lies.  Lord, may we learn to live in your truth and say no to lies. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

My fifteen-year-old son sat at church with his high school friends.  I asked if I could sit with him and He willingly agreed.  He was in one seat and I was in the seat next to him.  As the worship music began, a fifteen-year-old girl crowded in next to my handsome son, right in between us!  Yes, you understood correctly.  I was in one seat, he was in the next seat and she sat smack dab between us.  A little put off, I moved over slightly to lessen the awkwardness of being squished in the sanctuary.

Standing during worship lessened the obviousness of the space invasion.  However, annoyance was soon replaced with irritation at her posture during worship.  Her phone seemed to be the object of worship.  Most may not worship golden calves in 2018 in the United States, but there are other shiny things clamoring for our attention.

The worship stopped and the sermon began.  Surely now the phone would go away.  The irritation meter was rising.  What happened next catapulted me to the edge.

This fifteen-year-old girl began leaning on my son’s shoulder!  In the middle of church! Knowing I’m his mother, she felt completely comfortable with not only sitting right between us and adoring her phone, but also now was lying on his shoulder?!  It was just too much for a mom to bear.

Lord, what do I do?  Just then, in a moment of clarity, my son’s eyes met mine and he mouthed the words, “Help me!”

“Help me!”  The sweetest words a mother could hear at that moment.

Without a moment of hesitation, I looked straight at the girl, lifted my pointer finger in the way moms do, and firmly said only one word, “NO!”

That one word was all that needed to be said. And just like the White Witch in Narnia sat at the sound of Aslan’s roar, this fifteen-year-old girl immediately sat up from her laying position, put her phone away, looked straight ahead, and said, “Ok”  in a voice that conveyed understanding.

Not that I am by any means Aslan, but as a mom and as a child of God, I have been given certain authorities.

When the apostle Paul was being bothered by a girl who annoyed him by constantly yelling “These men are the servants of the Most High God, who proclaim to us the way of salvation” and persisted in this for many days, Paul finally had enough. It says, “Paul, greatly annoyed, turned and said to the spirit, ‘I command you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her.’  And he came out that very hour.”

There may not have been an evil spirit in the fifteen-year-old girl, but nonetheless, greatly annoyed, I  rose up with authority.

Thoughts of unworthiness or feelings of inferiority can plague those with abortion wounds. I personally struggled with these lies for years before freedom.  Renewing our mind to the truth of God’s Word does help.

We can only be free to the level we know the truth. 

However, only renewing our mind and taking full advantage of our authority is comparative to knowing a fifteen-year-old girl should not be lying on your son at church but then not stepping in to change the action.

We have that authority as believers in Christ.  We have authority to say, “No!”. When thoughts come against us that do not align with God’s truth, we can choose to just accept the lies or stand against the lies and tell them “No!”.

He has given us all authority in heaven for the pulling down of strongholds.  (2 Cor 10:4-5)

Any thought contrary to truth is crowding in on our space and needs to be told “No!”


Eyes of Wounded-ness


“For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face.  Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known.  And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love. “  1 Corinthians 13:12-13

Father, give us new eyes to see.  I pray for hearts to be healed from the wounds of abortion so the eyes, the windows to our souls, can be cleansed to see clearly.  Wounds cloud our view.  Help us see the world, ourselves and others through your eyes.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

The beauty of the ocean swirled before me as I gazed over the endless blue.  The view was breathtaking.  All my senses seemed alive while absorbing the smell of the fresh ocean air, the brush of the gentle breeze caressing my skin, and the sounds of waves crashing while seagulls begged overhead for their morning’s breakfast.  The ocean is indeed glorious and all seemed well.  My senses were not tuned to anything being amiss.

One of the resort workers came by my beach chair and asked if my sunglasses needed cleaning.  It was a courtesy of the resort to serve the sunglass needs of their guests.

Surprised by the request, I replied “Oh, no thank you.  I think they are fine.”

He paused as if implying I should allow the request, so I said, “Well, ok, thank you” and handed over the windows to the world around me.

He polished away with his cloth and handed them back to me within seconds. As I put the glasses back on, I was amazed at the difference!  Everything was clearer and crisper.  The glory of the Lord’s creation set before me was even more beautiful!

When I was viewing my world through the foggy sunglasses, what I saw was not the true picture of what was before me.  I only saw in part.  I only knew in part.

In this world, we have much trouble.  There are many wounds we have endured and continue to endure daily.  These wounds may cloud our vision of seeing truth.  We often see the world and others through eyes of wounded-ness.  This hinders our view and it hinders our love.

Someone forgets to text us back and we see it as rejection. Not because they rejected us but because we have projected the wounds of our past rejection onto that person.

Our spouse says something in jest, it triggers an old wound and we retreat in defeat or spew hurtful words in defense.  Meanwhile, he is clueless as to what just happened.

A parent was abusive, distant, or neglectful, and now we scoff at those in authority or fear they too will act in these ways. Our trust is forfeited and we withhold a part of ourselves.

A father did not love as he should have loved so now it is difficult to see your heavenly Father as the loving Father He is.  Eyes clouded by wounded-ness.  We cannot completely surrender and back away from communion with the Father due to fear of being fully known. 

 “For now we see in a mirror, dimly.”  Love diminished.

In heaven we will finally see fully.  We can wipe and clean our lenses, but there will always be a slight film blocking our vision from the true beauty around us we were created to enjoy.

However, as we are healed from past wounds and pains and allow the Lord to clean our lenses, the view does become more clear and accurate.

We don’t even realize how our own wounded-ness clouds our vision.  It is only when we allow the Lord to clean our lenses that we are able to realize how the fog was hindering our view and our ability to love.

This is a life-long process with the finish line crossing over to eternity in heaven.  But there are cleansing stations along the way.

The Father is asking you today, “Will you let me clean your lenses?”

What will your response be?

If you or someone you know needs healing from the wounds of abortion and you are ready to allow the Lord to wipe off the film of wounded-ness from your eyes, you can go to www.godeeperstill.org to find out more about our healing retreats nationwide.


Offended by White Crosses


“Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool.” Isaiah 1:18

Father, thank you that though our sins were as scarlet, you have made us white as snow.  Thank you that because of Jesus’ shed blood on the cross, we no longer live in condemnation, but are rather free to live as beloved children of the Most High God.  Father, there is no condemnation in you.  Thank you that you make all things new, and heal us from even the pain of losing a child by our own choice.  Heal the deepest places of our souls and may we honor those who deserve our honor.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen. 

Dear Friends,

It is an honor and a privilege to be able to speak to you today about a topic near and dear to my heart–the white crosses.  Thank you for listening.  I pray my words touch you and bring deeper healing to those who need it. -Sue Molitor



If it is too painful to think of your child in heaven lost to abortion or if the white crosses make you cringe, there is healing.  If you would like to know more about how you can attend a Deeper Still retreat to receive more healing and freedom, please go to www.godeeperstill.org to find out more information about retreats.

This excerpt today was taken from a video of Sue Molitor originally presented at Park West Church in Knoxville, TN.


Atoning for Sin

PicMonkey Sample


“For You do not desire sacrifice, or else I would give it; You do not delight in burnt offering.  The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit, a broken and a contrite heart—These, O God, you will not despise.” Psalm 51:16-17

Father, no words are adequate to thank you for the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.  Thank you Lord that you have declared it has been paid in full.  No amount of work or service would ever be adequate to repay our debts.  Thank you that you do not require nor delight in burnt offerings.  Lord, I pray for those with the sin of abortion to come to you with a broken and contrite heart and to know the freedom you have paid for them to have.  I pray you would use Deeper Still to bring freedom to them.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

The aroma of coffee permeated the air as words bounced between friends.  I shared about Deeper Still and how the Lord is impacting lives through this ministry and how blessed I feel to be a part of this ministry.  This friend, with good intentions, asked me a question I’ve never been asked before.  She asked if I felt validated by this ministry and if being involved in this ministry was a way of turning what Satan meant for evil into good.

I must admit the question took me by surprise.

Good question.  The answer without hesitation is no.  Let me explain for anyone else who has ever wondered the same.  Yes, the Lord does work all things together for good and for that I am thankful. However, my motivation for ministry hopefully has nothing to do with me and everything to do with the Lord and His people.  It is my passion for others to receive healing and be free.  It is my calling and purpose.  Any other motivation would be self-serving.

In the Psalm above, David is writing after his sin of adultery with Bathsheba and murder of her husband.  David could have done much on his own to attempt to atone for these sins. However, service in response to sin often further hardens our heart and creates a distance between us and God. As we work to repay, we feel justified and pride creeps into inside crevices.  The only sacrifice pleasing to the Lord is a broken and contrite heart.  Only the life-giving mercy and grace now poured out in the atoning blood of Christ on the cross can justify, repay all debts and fully redeem and restore.  Self-atonement is death.  Jesus’ atonement is life.

Abortion is crippling.  The day I ended the life inside my womb is the greatest regret of my life.  If I could undo it, I would.  But no amount of serving or work could ever undo the deed or repay the debt owed.  There is only One who can and has and His name is Jesus.  To think I could ever repay is prideful.  What I do in ministry or writing or prayer would never be enough.  I’m thankful God doesn’t require me to strive to pay that debt.  No, He clearly states in His word, it is paid in full.

Motives are strong indicators.  As you read this today, I pray you would consider your motives as well.  Abortion has a way of seeping into our actions.  Good intentions and service are lined with bitterness if done out of self-serving, obligatory reasons, or as a way of atoning for sin.

My friend’s question was valid and it is one we all need to ask ourselves.  If the answer is yes in any way, we need to reevaluate our reasons for serving or self-sacrifice.

If you find yourself trying to “make up” for the sin of abortion with self-atonement, there is freedom for you.  Our retreats are free of charge.  Jesus has paved the way to freedom.  There is no reason to live in shame, guilt and recompense any longer.  Jesus came to set the captives free.  He longs for His daughters and sons to live in freedom with nothing hidden and no fear.  If we can’t be free, then what is this Christianity thing all about?  If it is up to us to atone for our wrongs, then what is the point of the cross?  Jesus didn’t come so we would continue to cower and live in fear of man, He came to set the captives free!  You don’t have to live in bondage from your past and live in fear.  There is freedom and it is for you.



Becoming You

Becoming You photo


“I will give you the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places, that you may know that I, the Lord, who call you by your name, Am the God of Israel.”  Isaiah 45:3

Father, pain and suffering from either choices we have made or from the result of abuse can cause us to close off our hearts. Those hurts can also pound our personality into variances of who we were created to be.  Father I pray for you to restore the treasures of darkness and raise up the hidden riches of secret places. I pray for healing for the abortion wounded and those wounded from pains of abuse.  Reveal your love, heal wounds, and restore identities.  Father, use Deeper Still to transform and restore your beloved to their true selves through the power of Your love. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

In the depths of the ocean there are treasures we dare not venture to discover.  The depths are scary and dangerous.  It is not safe for mortals to dive into those waters.  However, the beauty beneath the waters is beyond our comprehension.  If we were able to travel to the deepest crevices of the sea, the treasures found would surpass anything our mind can conceive.

Our hearts are similar to the depths of the oceans-closed off from the surface and unavailable.  Pain and suffering from either choices we have made or from the result of abuse can cause us to close off our hearts. If we were to uncover the depths of our souls, the beauty found beneath the surface would astonish us.  The darkness of this world we experience through our senses has a way of distorting the person God created us to be, chiseling away until we have become a shadow of our true self. The treasures God put within us through our born-given personality have fallen beneath the surface, deep within, and forgotten.  These are hidden treasures captured by darkness, hidden riches tucked away in secret places, closed off and sealed in the name of self-protection.

Finding who we truly were created to be is one of life’s greatest treasures.  Years of emotional or physical abuse can squelch and oppress inherent beauty.  The only One who can safely go to the depths required to lift the years of agony that has crushed true identity is Jesus.  Only He is able to uncover the treasures the darkness has stolen and unveil the hidden riches that were locked away.  He knows how to remove the piles of plunder safely from the chambers of your heart.   And when He does, the beauty that is revealed will be stunning.

The key the Lord uses is not complicated nor is it a mystery.  Love in various forms is the key to unlocking the secrets places of our hearts.  It may seem too simple, contrite or cliché. Nevertheless, love is what draws the depths of our being out into the open waters.  Love digs up all the debris from pain, suffering, and belittling.  Love heals the hurts of emotional, physical and sexual abuse.  Love in large doses miraculously reverses the effects of personalities suppressed by being battered into a mold made from misery.

The love of Christ over time actually transforms you into who you were created to be—the most beautiful form of you—the real you. The you God had in mind when He purposely knit you together in your mother’s womb—the you He made you to be.  There is only one you. God put everything in you when He made you, designed and fashioned you to fulfill a very specific and significant purpose here on this earth.  That you is who our enemy fears and your whole life, the enemy of your soul has been on a quest to keep you from finding your true identity and self.  For he knows that when you become the real you and discover who you were meant to be that he will no longer have any power in your life.  Satan fears you.

Abortion is one tactic the enemy of our soul uses to steal, kill and destroy.  In abortion, the enemy wins.  Not only in ending a life of a child, but in stealing the identity of the one who chooses the choice.  The good news is that Jesus Christ wants to forgive, redeem and restore fully, not in part, but the whole.

The Lord knows what is hidden, He knows the treasures He placed in you long ago and He desires for all He placed in you to rise to the surface, no longer hidden, to be used for His Kingdom.   He calls you by name.  He longs for you to be the person He created you to be.  Will you let Him heal you and reveal what has been hidden?  There are stunning treasures lying in the depths of the sea.  Go deeper.  Discover what is beneath—who you really are—the real beautiful you.
