The bible places the highest value on human life.  It is sacred and of inestimable worth to God, who created it "in His own image" Genesis 1:26-27; "who sustains it" Job 12:10; and who "redeemed it" 2 Corinthians 5:19.  The Bible recognizes the unborn as being fully human: "You saw me before I was born and scheduled each day of my life before I began to breathe.  Every day was recorded in Your Book!" Psalm 139:16

The Wonder of Life:

"Children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb is His reward"  Psalm 127:3

"You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body, and knit them together in my mother's womb.  Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!  It is amazing to think about.  Your workmanship is marvelous--ad how will I know it.  Your were there while I was being formed in utter seclusion!  Psalm 139:13-15


Psalm 32:1-5  Blessed is the one whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. Blessed is the man against

whom the Lord counts no iniquity,and in whose spirit there is no deceit.  For when I kept silent, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long.  For day and night your hand was heavy upon me; my strength was dried up as by the heat of summer.  I acknowledged my sin to you, and I did not cover my iniquity.

Who forgives all your sins  and heals all your diseases, who redeems you life from the pit and crowns you with with love and compassion  Psalm 103:3-4

If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.  1 John 1:9

Courage and Strength to Carry On:

Why are you downcast, O my soul?  Why so disturbed within me?  Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise Him, my Savior and my God.  Psalm 42:11

But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.  Isaiah 40:31
