Where is your niche?

Eileen Smith tells the story of how she lost her daughter, Laura, and how she has been called to account for her own longtime failure to fight abortion.

Eileen calls upon us all to pray for "a life consciousness" and to be shown what we are to do.

Some people have found their niches. They were called upon to offer solace and hope to parents facing a grave prenatal diagnosis for their child. They were called upon to provide help and support to pregnant women at risk for abortion. They were called upon to shine the light of truth on their local abortion mill.

Not everybody will be called to the same thing. Some will have a calling on a local level, some on a state level, some on a national level, some on an international level. Some will be called to quieter activities such as fasting and prayer. Some will be called to attention-grabbing activities such as rallies and billboards. Some will be called to immediate rescue, working outside abortion mills. Some will be called to long-term battle, to have protections in place in law for when Roe falls. Some are called to inch laws ever so slowly closer to protecting life. Some will be called to fight for dramatic change in the law, to enshrine the dignity of life in law. Some will be called to fight the remaining scourge of illegal abortion -- for law alone will not stop abortion, but will only limit it. Some will be called to contribute more money, some more time, some more sacrifice. But everybody is called in some way, as Ephesians 5: 11 says: "Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead even expose them"

Where is your niche?

Very well said.

Let us not grow weary in well doing, for we will reap if we faint not.

Very moving. I'm so sad for this lady, but I'm glad justice prevailed.
