happy friday sweet things!
the hubby has been out of town the last couple of days so i am patiently awaiting his return! except that i have to go to class in an hour. no fun. and if it wasn't for that test, i'd most likely just hang out here today.
anyways, so it's evident that God is talking to me this week. He's been laying things on my heart left and right, and last night wasn't any different.
for the last three years in fall I've planned my thursday nights around greys anatomy. i started watching it with my sister a few years ago, caught up on all the seasons i had missed, and have never not seen an episode (seriously). so last night, after much waited anticipation, i grabbed my bowl of Cinnamon toast crunch and juice and sat down in front of the tv, and ignored the world for the next two hours.
only to be left in tears.
each year it's as if the producers get together and ask: how far is too far this year?
two seasons ago the finale was a gun man in the hospital, so incredibly intense. and then there was the wedding finale, and then the one where george died. but then there was this years premier.
the abortion one.
it's such an ugly word i hate even typing it.
greys anatomy is that show i watch that i shouldn't. and now i know why.
anyone else have a guilty pleasure? where you tell yourself 'i know it's wrong but i know whats right and whats wrong so i'm good'.
God let me know last night that it wasn't ok for me to be watching this show.
so there it was at the end of the episode, a woman given the greatest blessing on earth (the ability to be a mommy) and she decided that she'd rather be a doctor and focus in on her career.
i think the word selfish would just about sum it up.
it broke my heart.
i was baffled. and at a loss for words.
when did it become ok on prime time tv to have this kind of thing? when did society say that it was ok to advocate...murder?
i sat and prayed last night for a looooong time. i prayed that God would forgive us. forgive us for thinking that it would be ok to promote 'pro-choice' and forgive us for beings so incredibly selfish and throwing away life so easily.
needless to say, i've jumped off the greys band wagon and am running the opposite direction.
like i said before, God is doing work in my life right now and i'm so joyful over it, but He's literally breaking my heart for what breaks His in the mean time.
so here's my point in this rant: at what point are we Christ follower going to say enough? when are we all going to stand up and say this is not what God wants or desires us to do?
let's start with the simple things, like what we watch on tv, or what we listen too. maybe even the way we talk to people, and what we stand up for?
but most importantly, lets pray.
because this world is so broken and needs our prayers.
gosh this sounded like a debbie downer on a friday! but rejoice in your Savior!
