The truth is… ALL LIVES MATTER.
All lives matter for two reasons:
#1. … because, as I believe, God created each of us in His image, and because of this fact, each one of us is a precious individual worthy of respect and love, no matter what we have, or have not done in life. To discredit, or look down on anyone with disdain is an affront to God himself as the Creator of all life.
#2. … because, I believe, everyone has a purpose; God creates and places everyone in the line of history for His purposes. Our stories involve the ups and downs of life that includes both victories and wounds from the battles we fight, for the purpose of coming alongside one another to be the voice of praise or the arms of comfort of the Lord himself.
This is why I do what I do. I write and speak out about issues that affect us all as human beings created in God’s image. I advocate for the erasing of stigma that causes people to misjudge and misinterpret the situations of another one’s life, especially those suffering in battles that are overwhelming and consuming.
I asked God to help me to see those around me as He sees them; in my heart, this is what He revealed to me:
All lives matter.
Go and live like you understand that, so that my love may be known.
Will you join me and be an advocate for every human life?
Help me define what that looks like….
“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.” John 13:34
