Good Bye Baby

Artist Statement

Abortion is a scary thing, something we often go into without all the information or truth. We trick ourselves into thinking it's ok. I was one of the ones who walked in full of life, God given life growing inside me and I walked out empty, and a murder.

At the time I was a single mother. I had my first child at 18. I was in school and just didn't believe I could love another child as much as the one I already had. I was wrong. I was afraid of my future and unsure of what kind of mother I would be. Turns out I was not to bad. Now years later with two children more I know that that was a lie and a seed planted by lack of faith an doubt in myself, my family and my God. I may have had the choice, but I did not have the right. “Everything is permissible”—but not everything is constructive. 1 Cor. 10:23 NIV.
I have learned that I am not the one who gives life I was merely the vessel that was chosen to bring that life into this world, I now know what an honor that is.

In the mist of all the unwanted pregnancy and callus treatment of human life, in the mist of us trying desperately to hold on to youth, stay slim, eat right, save the world, protect animals, look good and never die. In the mist of our pretend evolution I find that without Christ, we have just unveiled the barbarians that we truly are.

The world may say abortion is a women’s choice but it is a death Unjustified.

“You are not your own; you were bought with a price. Therefore honor God with your body”. 1 Cor. 6:20

God gave me this song "Good Bye Baby," some years ago as I worked through my fears of not knowing if I could ever have another child and asking God for forgiveness for what I had done and understanding the severity of my actions.

At the time fear was my only thought and motivation. For years I carried around the wounds of abortion. It formed my emotions without my knowledge but not anymore I have taken responsibility for my actions and God has forgive forgiven me. This song was healing for me, may it be for others as well.

How it fits into contest

“You are not your own; you were bought with a price. Therefore honor God with your body”. 1 Cor. 6:20

Recognizing I have been bought with a price and that my life is not my own.
I know now that my strength comes from the Lord and armed with the knowledge of His power and might there is nothing I cannot do or over come in my life. Understanding that in those times of fear and doubt I wrestled not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Knowing that by putting on the armor of the Lord daily through His word I am now able to stand against whatever may come.
My work fits with in the contest of the topic by showing the spiritual battle for my life as I struggled with the reality of a life taken and then given back to me through forgiveness and faith in the Father's love for me. Using that faith to shield me from the enemy's attach as he placed me back into the fold. Then allowing me through my music an outlet to share with the world what He has done in my life . (That utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel, For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.)

Transcript / Lyrics

2x Goodbye baby
I never knew your name
Don’t cry baby
I was so glad when you came
But I can’t keep you now
I would only fell you somehow
You weren’t in my plans
Your life was not in demand

Many Years ago
That is how I felt
But now that I am old
I realized my misstep
So I cried out to God
and said please forgive me
because when I was young
I did not want to see
Then the Lord said my child
My Grace has set you free
now go in my peace

So I said goodbye baby
I may never know your name
don’t cry baby
my life will never be the same
I know it was my choice
but I still long to hear your voice
To hold you in my arms
and to keep you safe from harm
If I had it to do all over again
your life I would not end

So I say Goodbye baby
I wish I had known your name
