Then they told him, and said: “We went to the land where you sent us. It truly flows with milk and honey, and this is its fruit. “Nevertheless the people who dwell in the land are strong; the cities are fortified and very large; moreover we saw the descendants of Anak there. “The Amalekites dwell in the land of the South; the Hittites, the Jebusites, and the Amorites dwell in the mountains; and the Canaanites dwell by the sea and along the banks of the Jordan.” Then Caleb quieted the people before Moses, and said, “Let us go up at once and take possession, for we are well able to overcome it.” But the men who had gone up with him said, “We are not able to go up against the people, for they are stronger than we.” And they gave the children of Israel a bad report of the land which they had spied out, saying, “The land through which we have gone as spies is a land that devours its inhabitants, and all the people whom we saw in it are men of great stature. “There we saw the giants (the descendants of Anak came from the giants); and we were like grasshoppers in our own sight, and so we were in their sight.”

To say that you have the right to make that choice is to say that you are equal to G-d. That is the very thing that Satan (i.e., Lucifer) was cast out of G-d’s Presence for (Ezekiel 28:11-19, Isaiah 14:12-15). He desired to be equal to G-d.
THANK YOU to all the women who have the courage to stand and not make this choice, but to leave the circumstance in G-d’s Hands, for He truly knows best. It is not easy to leave it in His Hands for we often do not know the outcome. However, through His guidance, He will see you through it and you will reap the blessings.
For those that have decided to make the choice to take a life, G-D STILL LOVES YOU! Today is the day of salvation, meaning do not wait for tomorrow (Deuteronomy 30:19-20; 2 Corinthians 6:2). Cease the moment. Come to Jesus and He will restore you unto His Righteousness. The key is to repent and give glory to G-d for who He is and for His Love for you. He can and will heal your heart from this tragedy. All you have to do is come to Him.
Finally, thank you mom for making the hard choice of life when you were confronted with an ultimatum. Love you.
