Welcome to God’s Solutions for Today’s Problems podcast. This is podcast #2. My name is Daniel Whyte III, president of Ordained Chaplains USA and Life coach. We don’t have to look far to see that many people in the world are dealing with a variety of problems and are in need of solutions. No matter what problem you are facing — whether it is emotional, mental, psychological or spiritual — Jesus Christ holds the solution that you need. As we walk together in this podcast, we will address a number of topics that exist in the world and present solutions from the Bible that will help you heal and live life more abundantly. Our aim in this podcast is: (1) to introduce you to our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, the ultimate source of all healing; (2) to provide you with information that will help you to understand the problem; and (3) to help you by providing solutions to your problems.
Our passage from the Word of God today is Psalm 22:24. It reads, “For he hath not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; neither hath he hid his face from him; but when he cried unto him, he heard.”
Our quote for today is from an Unknown Author. He said, “God didn’t promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sun without rain. But He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way. If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.”
Our problem today is “Abortion” (part 2) from the book, “The Guide to Biblical Counseling” by Dr. Tim Clinton and Dr. Ron Hawkins:
“I have been forgiven, I know it, but why can’t I get over this?” Nancy kept repeating the words to herself as she glanced down the pew at church where her two little daughters squirmed beside her, waiting for the chance to be released to go to children’s church. She tried to concentrate on the sermon but the Right to Life announcement in the bulletin claimed all of her attention. “I didn’t realize what I was doing.”
Allow me to share with you some “Myths About Abortion”:
Myth 1: “It’s a simple procedure; life will resume on Monday.”
Myth 2: “It’s not a baby; it’s a blob of tissue.”
Myth 3: “It’s okay; abortion is legal.”
Myth 4: “My life will be ruined if I have this baby.”
Myth 5: “It’s my choice, my responsibility, my decision.”
Myth 6: “It’s okay to have an abortion if there’s something wrong with the baby.”
Myth 7: “I am alone; no one cares about me.”
Myth 8: “I don’t deserve forgiveness; I knew it was wrong.”
Myth 9: “I got what I deserved; I did it more than once.”
Myth 10: “This won’t hurt; the pain will subside.”
Myth 11: “It is my only option; he doesn’t want the baby.”
Myth 12: “It’s okay in cases of rape or incest.”
Allow me to share with you six things that will encourage you to carry your baby to term:
1. Ask God for forgiveness.
2. Accept God’s forgiveness.
3. Forgive yourself.
4. Seek professional or pastoral care. (To find more resources or a crisis pregnancy center in your area, go to www.lifecall.org.)
5. Visualize God holding your baby.
6. When God gives grace, serve in some capacity to help pregnant young women.
In our next podcast we will discuss some questions to consider if you are contemplating an abortion or have had an abortion.
Dear friend, if you do not believe on the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior, may I encourage you to get to know Him today. John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead by the power of God for you so that you can live forever with Him. Pray and ask Him to come into your heart today, and He will. Romans 10:13 says, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
