Cradle My Heart Today | Victoria’s story 9-14-17
Victoria was a young divorced mom of two kids, when, in her new relationship she found herself pregnant. Listen now:
And though she thought the relationship was serious, he immediately pressed for abortion, and she agreed, to please him.
When she arrived to pay her $350, she asked, “Is this ok?”
And she was told yes, it was so early in the pregnancy that it wasn’t really a baby. Perhaps sensing her ambivalence, the attendant then said if she changed her mind she wouldn’t get her money back.
Although it was over quickly her life was changed forever.
As Victoria shared on the reality show Preacher’s Daughters, she also almost aborted her daughter Tawni.
Yet today she finds redemption if Christ, and pays it forward through her work in the pregnancy help movement.
Many pastor’s wives and other women serving in ministry are harboring the pain from abortion in their past. Others admit guilt over contemplating abortion when worried about an untimely pregnancy.
They are learning that abortion doesn’t disqualify us from serving as God heals our hearts. And serving can’t make things right. Although abortion is deeply wrong because it is the intentional killing of an innocent human being, God’s merciful grace is deeper still.
When the risen Lord met Peter after he had failed Jesus by denying him, there was no recrimination or rebuke. He simply gave Peter the chance to reaffirm the footing on which all true ministry stands.
He asks us still today, “Do you love?”
When they had finished eating, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?”
“Yes, Lord,” he said, “you know that I love you.”
Jesus said, “Feed my lambs.” (John 21:15)
