This subject is one that has always been close to my heart. About sixteen years ago, I remember sitting in a crisis pregnancy center, staring down at the positive pregnancy test I’d taken moments earlier. I couldn’t believe my eyes. I actually remember thinking that if I stared at it long enough I could somehow change the results of the test or simply wish it away. Scared out of my mind, I continued to sit and stare.
Does this sound like you or someone you know? Oh sweetie, I understand your pain. Although it may seem like it, all is not lost. No, things will not be easy, however, it is possible for you to pursue the life that you dreamed. There is hope for you as a teen mom. The mistake of sex before marriage is forgivable and recoverable in the sight of God. It may take some time but your loved ones will forgive you as well, especially if they are Christians themselves. We’ve all fallen short in one form or another, the difference is that when we (children of God) fall, we don’t stay down, we get up. As hard as it may be, we must force ourselves to get up and continue with our life.
God loves turning our hurting into healing, but first we have to allow Him. Will you allow Him today?
