Letting Go & Naming
Many questions will come to mind as you complete this lesson.
*Was it really a life?
*Where is my baby now?
*How will I face my child in heaven?
*What name should I give my baby?
*When does life begin?
Isaiah 46:3 King James Version (KJV)
3 Hearken unto me, O house of Jacob, and all the remnant of the
house of Israel, which are borne by me from the belly, which are
carried from the womb:
Jeremiah 1:4-5 King James Version (KJV)
4 Then the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
5 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and
before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified
thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.
Psalm 139:13-16 King James Version (KJV)
13 For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my
14 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made:
marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.
15 My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret,
and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
16 Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect;
and in thy book all my members were written, which in
continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none
Galatians 1:15 King James Version (KJV)
15 But when it pleased God, who separated me from my
mother's womb, and called me by his grace,
Luke 1:41 King James Version (KJV)
41 And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the
salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth
was filled with the Holy Ghost:
When did your unborn baby’s life begin? Some may have
asked the question, “Where is my baby now?”
Hearing testimonies of people that have died and come back
to earth to tell us the story, has impacted my life. Dr. Gary Wood is
one individual that I know personally and I have read his story in
a book called A Place Called Heaven. He tells of His encounter.
“We entered into a room that was like a nursery. I saw what looked
like big globs of flesh heaped into mounds. That’s the only way
I know how to describe it – just big globs of flesh that looked like
mounds of clay. There was an angel with each one. ‘What is that?’
I asked my friend. He replied ‘That is aborted babies from the
earth below. An angel has been assigned to each one who will
fashion and form then into the child God intended them to be.’”
Keep in mind that this happened in 1966. There were no statistics
kept on number of abortions performed during that time. Statistics
now show that 1.5 million to 2 million babies are being aborted
every year in America
I have read other stories from different authors and each one
tells of the babies that have been miscarried or aborted. So, I
personally believe that one day we will see our babies again in
heaven. God thinks they are important.
I have read many testimonies of people who have had visions
of heaven and have seen the baby they aborted. One night
as I was praying, the Lord gave me a vision of Him holding
my child. In my vision, my baby was a beautiful little girl. So with
much prayer I named her Melissa. After my Mother passed away,
the Lord gave me another vision of my Mother playing with a group
of children. When I asked the Lord who they were, he told me it
was her grandchildren she never saw. What joy came through my
heart to know that in heaven, we will meet again!
So I challenge you to pray and ask God to give you a vision
of your child. Sometimes it does not happen right away. Sometimes
you will just have a peace in your heart.
Let your heart speak to you when you do this.
After you name your baby take the time to write a letter to your
baby and let your heart speak. Below is a sample letter you can use
this one or make one of your own. If you had more than one abortion,
write a letter to each child.
