The Planned Parenthood abortion facility doesn't stop doing abortions just because it's raining and windy outside. The enemy is still out to steal, kill and destroy regardless of the weather conditions.

Sometimes we are called to go out and be a light in the darkness even when it's uncomfortable for us. Ministry isn't always comfortable. Most often times it stretches us out of our comfort zone.

The bitter cold rain has my fingers numb, my nose frozen and dripping, my eyes watering, and my shoes and jeans are no longer dry and comfortable. But the life of a child ? the life of a mother and the life of a father ? is far more important than my comfort.

While I was standing here praying, a man and a woman sat facing me in their parked car in front of Planned Parenthood. She was crying and he was just staring at me and the other woman praying with me.

They sat there for ten minutes. They never got out of the car ? and eventually left, pulling out of the parking lot.

Who knows? A life just might have been saved today! I may never know that this side of heaven, but what I do know is that it's important to be obedient to the call of God to be a light in the darkness sharing the truth.

Abortion hurts. And there is help ? and there is a better way!
