Jesus, Light Of The World

The Light of the World by Charles Chambers

Earlier this month, I posted Jesus, What Have I Done? linking to Kevin Burke's (co~founder of Rachel's Vineyard Ministries) article which related some of  Steven Tyler's (Aerosmith fame) memories regarding an abortion he helped to procure for his young girlfriend, Julia Holcomb, back in the mid-seventies.
Kevin was contacted by Julia after reading the article and expressed her desire to tell her side of the story. Julia, a convert to Catholicism, is now happily married with seven children.
Her story is not easy to read, but bears the sign of Christ's healing and mercy. Abortion inflicts deep and painful wounds that only the grace, love and mercy of God can heal. Julia's story, along with my own and that of many others is proof that when we turn our lives over to God with humility and repentance, He can bring about great good no matter what we have done.
Jesus truly is the Light of the World that no darkness can ever overcome.
Read Julia's powerful story The Light of the World.

Closing Prayer

Psalm 45: Canticle of Love to the King

My heart overflows with a good theme;
I address my verses to the King;
My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
You are fairer than the sons of men;
Grace is poured upon Your lips;
Therefore God has blessed You forever.

Gird Your sword on Your thigh, O Mighty One,
In Your splendor and Your majesty!
And in Your majesty ride on victoriously,
For the cause of truth and meekness and righteousness;
Let Your right hand teach You awesome things.
Your arrows are sharp;
The peoples fall under You;
Your arrows are in the heart of the King’s enemies.

Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;
A scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You
With the oil of joy above Your fellows.
All Your garments are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia;
Out of ivory palaces stringed instruments have made You glad.
Kings’ daughters are among Your noble ladies;
At Your right hand stands the queen in gold from Ophir.
