Tuesdays; Fish Bait

You might remember that I said that I would go to Planned Parenthood on Tuesdays ...

What's the deal about Tuesdays? My understanding is that on Tuesdays, Planned Parenthood does their preliminary evaluations. Does this mean pregnancy tests? Does this mean pre-abortion counseling? I don't know. I do know that they are quite busy on Tuesdays, and there are no guards, no escorts, and no protesters. Planned Parenthood gets the floor, and there is no rebuttal.

People are faced with their sin and Planned Parenthood whispers in their ears, "Peace, peace." No one plants seed on this furrowed ground. No one proclaims the truth of God when hearts are tender. We wait until Thursday, when the ground has hardened.

Well, every thime I have been there on Tuesday, there has been an opportunity to speak to someone; without exception. Last Tuesday I didn't go. I decided that if I wasn't going to get out of the car and speak when an opportunity was presented, then I wasn't going to go, because that would be blatent disobedience. Why go, after all if I am unwilling to do what I am called there to do?

Have I forgotten?

All that God has taught me at Planned Parenthood?

...and more?

Unwilling... Disobedient... Afraid of man rather than God... Fish bait.

If God has called me there, then I go. I have nothing to say, and that's the good news. God, forgive me for those for whom you had a message, and I did not deliver it.

Where is it that we are told that we are equipped for every good work?

Where is it that we are told that in our weakness, His strength is made perfect?

Pray, dear one, pray for those who need to hear from God, that the beautiful feet will stand firm; that the seed will be bountifully sown on the furtile soil as it is tilled on Tuesdays.

It's raining. I will go. My umbrella is broken, but I will get out of the car. I have learned this on Thursdays: Go, be there because God has called. Proclaim the truth of God, though it is raining and there is no one to hear. This is the training for when God would have brought the ears that need to hear, the furtile soil to receive the seed.

The sun was out by 10, with rain water falling from the trees when the wind blew. It was absolutely beautiful.

I thought it would be easy...

It was very quiet... more later.

Still chicken... too chicken t get out of my car. Thought I could get by, but no...

More later.
