Do I Deserve to be Here? Part 1

The song “What Was I Supposed to Be?” was brought back to my mind a couple weeks ago after some states voted to allow late-term abortions up until birth. I used to sing this song, and I got to hear a recording of it on Sunday I didn’t know I had. Ray Boltz wrote this well over 25 years ago. If abortion had been legal in the 1950s, I would probably not be here. For those who might even think that abortion should be available for those who have been victimized by rape or incest, again, I would probably not be here.

What Was I Supposed to Be?

Verse 1

When Jesus walked upon the earth On the shores of Galilee

He’d say to his disciples Let the little children come to me

I wonder if up in heaven Do you suppose we’ll see Little children ask Him

What was I supposed to be?

Chorus

What was I supposed to be? What were my eyes supposed to see?

And why did I taste of death Before I even drew a breath

Or laid my head At my mother’s breast to sleep

Oh, Jesus, what was I supposed to be?

What was I supposed to be? What were my eyes supposed to see?

And why did I taste of death Before I even drew a breath

Or laid my head At my mother’s breast to sleep

Oh, Jesus, what was I supposed to be?

Bridge

Was I to be a prophet Used in the ministry?

A doctor who would find the cure For some terrible disease?

Even if I’d been born imperfect Why couldn’t my parents see

That I’d have been made perfect When you came back for me?

Oh, Jesus What was I supposed to be?

What were my eyes supposed to see? And why did I taste of death

Before I even drew a breath Or laid my head

At my mother’s breast to sleep Oh, Jesus, what was I supposed to be?

What was I supposed to be? Jesus, what was I supposed to be?

Here’s an audio link to listen to the song. If you’d prefer a video, you can probably find it on YouTube.

If man is made in the image of God, then abortion destroys a life made in God’s image—and God says, “Do not kill.” But, He holds the unborn babies in heaven, and He will forgive the woman/girl for what she has done, if she asks. And He will heal her heart. Tomorrow—a bit of my birth mother’s story, and what God did with me. Do I deserve to be here? #WhatWasISupposedToBe @donnalhsmith #RayBoltz #prolifeissues TWEETABLE

Cracked-Pot

We have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; let your light shine through your cracked pot. Ring the bells that still can ring, Forget your perfect offering, there is a crack in everything, That's how the light gets in and comes out.
