Sidewalk counselor offers a better choice than abortion

Cradle My Heart Today | Daniela’s story 7-7-17

“Daniela,” was on her way to get an abortion when she met a sidewalk counselor who soon realized Daniela only spoke Spanish. Listen now:

The counselor called Heartbeat International knowing Spanish-speaking consultants answer the call nearly 24-7.

As the consultant answered Daniela’s questions about abortion and helped her understand the procedure, she also let her know about a nearby pregnancy help center.

Daniela seemed determined to have an abortion, but she listened to the information about the pregnancy center.

Later that day, Daniela called to say she was on her way to the pregnancy center.

She had decided to keep her baby.

God’s love overcame much more than a language barrier that day.

Often we cannot see God’s hand in our circumstances until we look back and realize his presence. And God will often answer our deepest desires before we even know our own hearts.

Unintended pregnancy provides an opportunity to trust and receive the blessing of a new life. While many of may fail to see that blessing when it is before us, those who choose life attest that God knows best. Prayer is the universal language of God’s heart, and sometimes he hears before we even begin to speak.

“It shall come to pass that before they call, I will answer; And while they are still speaking, I will hear.” Isaiah 65:24
