When abortion was on my mind

I just want to share this before I go offline for the day. Abortion was once on my mind! I already had three boys at home when the doctor confirmed I’m with child. We were fighting with finances, making ends meet and having no time for children. We just couldn’t afford another child, we thought. Having a child means giving our best and we were pondering.

Whilst abortion was on our mind, the faith brings us clear and near to what God commands: DO NOT KILL!

Though I love children and adored my three boys dearly, I actually carried the child, my one beloved daughter now, with much indecision and ignorance of how things were going to be financially.

Jeremiah 1:5 I knew you before I formed you in the womb; I set you apart for me before you were born; I appointed you to be a prophet to the nations.

And I clearly knew it was our fault to have conceived while we can’t afford. Truly our fault when we don’t accept the consequences of our actions.

I did pray and work hard for better remuneration. So too did my late husband. And having three boys, I told my gynecologist that I don’t want to know the sex of the child till birth.

I knew you before I formed you in the womb; I set you apart for me before you were born. Jer 1:5 Click To Tweet

It’s a girl!

I remember the day she was born, when the doctor said “it’s a girl, Mary”.  The joy my husband and I felt was unspeakable and from then our lives changed in many ways.

Promotions and job offers came about for my late husband and we never felt the financial pinch we thought we would have.

And we have now a wonderful, beautiful daughter, a gift from God, in all our hesitation.

I thank God for seeing me through the days and giving me a gift so much to be praised. I thank God for His blessings! AMEN!

I look forward to reading more by this Christian writer. This article popped up when I was reading prayers on faith online this a.m.

I was thinking tonight back many years ago to the 60s and 70s when their must have been much ignorance and fear in teen girls that found themselves pregnant and were unable to tell their parents for fear of being throw out of the home, those that did not know God and felt so alone. Are things any different now? I do pray that they are.If you’re pregnant, you have three options it seems: abortion, adoption, and parenting. Only you can decide what to do and you will have to live with the decision you make, it can be helpful… Read more »
