Parents of pregnant teens often fear a loss of reputation or financial failure. But, at the heart of Maya’s story was the hero, her mother.
The fact that we all are liable to make mistakes could leave us despairing, but instead we can rejoice as God provides grace and redemption, leading to hope.
Today her childlike faith finds her satisfied in God’s love. And as she grows in faith she shares her story to encourage others.
God’s word tells us that he binds up the brokenhearted, and this is true even after abortion.
So many young women think intimacy equals maturity and will lead to popularity, only to find that reputation still matters. It takes real character to do the right thing after learning that hard lesson.
An unintended pregnancy often brings relationship weaknesses to the surface. This can be an opportunity for growth and drawing closer, or it can serve as a wedge, dividing and destroying trust.
It takes faith to trust in God in the midst of the uncertain circumstances surrounding an unplanned pregnancy. But He encourages us to find the strength to trust him wholeheartedly.
Turning to God in faith dials back the fear and increases our trust. And faith helps us make a life-affirming choice for everyone involved.
Often a whole new purpose unfolds as we follow where God’s love leads.
An unplanned pregnancy may test the character of everyone affected by it. But with God’s help we cannot fail.
