Taking Chances and Breaking Rank

I'm not going to say to my commanding officer. "But, I don't want any more arrows. Just 1 or 2 to take into battle with me. They're too cumbersome & too hard to handle. I'll take my chances & go into battle with just 1, Okay, commander? I think I really am the 1 who knows best in this situation. I know you are the superior officer. But, I'm not letting you control EVERYTHING. I'm breaking rank on this one."~Marla K.

I couldn't agree more with the quote from Marla! All of our human reasoning and logic FOR birth control goes against the God we see in Scripture. Only God opened the womb and only God closed it. If God is the same yesterday, today and forever, then that still holds true today. If that is so and He is the POTTER, then we, as the CLAY, should accept His creations that He chooses to create within our womb. If He told you he wanted you to have 2, then you'll have 2 whether you use "protection" [from blessings] or not.

Humans have a tendancy to play God. I almost decided to stop having children after nearly dying from blood loss after losing our four month old Levi. Instead, I chose to rely on what I had found true in His Word, and now we are blessed with little Eva!

I trust Him with creating or not creating, as only He is infinite in wisdom. I am merely here to serve Him and leave Him the room to create as He chooses! I won't tell him "hands off my womb" and I won't assume He needs me to help Him with creating/preventing life itself. I am so thankful for my 6 biological blessings, my 3 adopted blessings and my 7 blessings awaiting me in Glory! God is GOOD...and as I say when ministering at the abortion clinic, God NEVER creates mistakes...never!

‎"One of you will say to me: "Then why does God still blame us? For who resists his will?" But who are you, O man, to talk back to God? "Shall what is formed say to him who formed it, 'Why did you make me like this?' "Does not the potter have the right to make out of the same lump of clay some pottery for noble purposes and some for common use?" Romans 9:19-21
