Recently I read a blog and it just made me cry. I won’t release the name, yet it was a woman recovering from abuse, married now, and she found out she was pregnant. She shared how she wasn’t sure if she would keep the baby as she did not feel whole. It broke my heart. I shared a few words, of how this baby may be part of the healing, yet she did not agree. It is her choice. But to me, it’s a baby. It’s a life. It is precious. And out of all the mommies in the world, God chose her to be that baby’s mom. She was chosen, yet she doesn’t want it.

I was raped when I was a teen. I remember taking shower after shower trying to feel “clean”. And yet still I knew if I ended up pregnant I would have kept that baby. Adoption would have been an option, not abortion. It was a life. (No, I did not get pregnant) Life is precious and a gift from God. He is the Author of Life, not me.

I am unborn. I cannot speak when I am afraid, you can feel a silent cry.
My eyes have not yet seen the colors of this world, but what you do to me shows me death or life.

For your choice is all I have. Your voice my only chance. Please keep me.

I am alive, my heart is beating. Innocent life, small inside I hide.
I need you all the time. Someday I’ll grow up, just because of you, who cared enough to love.

For your choice is all I have. Your voice my only chance. Please keep me.

My life here is at your mercy, don’t you see.
I am unborn, my entire life ahead of me. I am your baby.
The world awaits my cry and breath, I long to be held in your arms mommy.
God’s depth of love for you is everlasting. In the dark, or in the light, He’ll never leave.

Though I may be little, unnoticed, please don’t let me stay unnoticed for too long.
God makes no mistakes. Both you and I are wonderfully, fearfully made.

For your choice is all I have. Your voice my only chance. Please keep me.
Your choice is all I have. Your voice my only chance. Please keep me.

  1. Yes diane very sad, love this post, she needs this baby to feel love and overpower the hatred, so she can leave that guy.

  2. […] article, Unborn, is syndicated from Prayers and Promises and is posted here with […]

  3. Oh, my, I pray she keeps that baby and if not wanting to keep it herself gives it up for adoption. So many people would take that baby in a heartbeat. I am the grandmother of two adopted children and I love them as much as if they’d been born to my daughter. I’m lifting her up in prayer. Bless you, too, Diana. I’m so sorry that you had to endure rape. God can and does bring us through difficult times and use for good that which was meant to or did “damage” us. Blessings, Natalie 🙂

    • Thank you Natalie. I pray for her too. And thank you my friend. God has healed that hole in my soul, just like He promised. I know that was from the enemy, not God. God is good, Devil is bad. Unfortunately, there will always be those who abuse their power. I trust God for healing, and He promised us He would take care of them too. I finally had to let go of it and trust God to deal with them. It was killing me from the inside out. I could hold onto it and try to deal with it on my own, or choose to turn it over to God and let Him take care of it. God saw, He knows. It was not His wish for me. His plans for me are good. It’s that other guy. Justice is coming – soon, thank you Jesus.

      • Amen, sweet Diana, amen!!! Hugs, Natalie 🙂
