I watched this video for the first time today. And may I say that every, single woman out there ought to see this.
Specifically, if you are a mother, if you are pregnant, if you are unsure, insecure, wondering, wandering, wanting to know who you are and how or if you can go on – watch this.
If you find yourself in an unplanned pregnancy, know that you are part of a community of those who can. You are part of a steady stream of women – and even girls – who have gone before you, who have done this. One of the most famous women with an “unplanned pregnancy” is mentioned in this video. And her Son made history.
Women need to be told these things. We are women. We are strong. We are capable. We are ready. We are able. We are all these things for ourselves and for our children. And, in fact, we were created that way; we were this way in our mothers’ wombs. Why? How can this be? It has all been made possible for us by One Who gave His life that we might live. On the cross, Christ won every battle that ever had been and was ever to be waged. The battles are already over, and they’ve been won. We must only choose to accept Him and the victories He has won on our behalf.
Because of Him, you can do this. I can do this. We can all do this. And when we feel weak, when we feel like it’s too much to go on, let us choose to reach out to the people around us who have been given strength for our moment. Of course, call upon Jesus, and He will be there. But also, also, call out for the help of the people He has created.
If you are in an unplanned pregnancy, a difficult pregnancy, or suffering after an abortion, call those numbers and get the help you need. Help is within reach. You are not alone, and you are awesome.
