Precious souls



To be a blessing

Yet seen as a burden

An “inconvenience”

An “expense” even

How much is a soul worth?

Millions? billions? the whole world?

Is the soul not worth more than the whole world?

What does it profit a man

If he gains the whole world and loses his very soul

These babies are precious in God’s eyes

He wants to have communion with them

So that they may know Him

As their Father and their God

Life is in the blood

Only the blood of Jesus the unblemished lamb of God

Can buy our souls back form captivity and rescue them from destruction

A soul belongs to God

Only He can create or destroy a soul

We can only destroy the body

Let us accept these gifts that He gives us

And not steal the opportunity from them

To be a blessing as they to fulfill their God-given  purpose

These little ones are a gifts from God

Their precious souls carry with them

A piece of their maker

He is our maker also

As they commune with Him

They will bring life, hope and light

So desperately needed in this world

Laughter in empty spaces

A touch of healing to a longing mother’s heart

A smile to the skeptic

A breath of fresh air in decadence

New life and hope  in dying places

These precious souls

Are His and His alone

Loved and sent to be a blessing

James 1:17-18 (ESV)

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change. Of his own will he brought us forth by the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.
