You Are Wanted

pregnant-377451_640 You Are Wanted

When I wrote this post in 2013 I was thinking of how everyone was created with a purpose and that, if you don’t know what it is, you should pray to the Holy Spirit to reveal it to you. As I opened this post today, a totally different thought entered my mind.

My hope is that a pregnant woman who is considering abortion will read this, watch the video and come to understand that the life inside her is just as important as her own. The life inside her deserves to enter this world and fulfill its God-given purpose.

We are all wanted…wanted by God. That’s why He created us and why He is there for us with every step we take. If you cannot raise the life inside you, there’s a family somewhere who can. I should know because I’m an adoptive father. I can’t imagine how different my life would be had Jack’s birthmother decided to get an abortion.

Read the lyrics, watch the video and understand how important you, and the life inside you, are to our God.

From the day you were born

And took your first breath

You opened your eyes and in came the light

He was watching you

But all of your life you couldn’t shake the lies in your head

Saying you’re a mistake

Oh but you were made

By a God who knows your name

He doesn’t make mistakes

You are wanted

To every broken heart, He stands with open arms

You are wanted

To every searching soul, look to the rising sun

If you’re lonely, hurting, gone too far

To the outcast you come as you are

For you, you are wanted, you, you are wanted

You, you are wanted, you, you are wanted

Let today be the day that joy takes the place

Of all of the years that shame tried to steal away

He is calling you

Lift your eyes to see His face

Come run into the arms of grace

You r wanted

To every broken heart, He stands with open arms

You r wanted

To every searching soul, look to the rising sun

If you’re lonely, hurting, gone too far

To the outcast you come as you are

For you, you are wanted, you, you are wanted

You, you r wanted, you, you are wanted

You, you have been marked

You’re set apart

And He calls you His

So you don’t have to search

Don’t have to look for where you belong

You r wanted

You r wanted

To every broken heart, He stands with open arms

You are wanted

To every searching soul, look to the rising sun

If you’re lonely, hurting, gone too far

To the outcast you come as you are

For you, you r wanted, you, you r wanted

You, you are wanted, you, you are wanted
