Forgetting What is Behind Part II

According to the Alan Gutmacher Institute study of 2006, about one half of American women experience unintended pregnancy each year. If you fall into that category, you may have been surprised, (to say the least), by the positive pregnancy test.

First, let me say again, no life is an accident and no baby is a mistake. Of course there is free will in this fallen world, but it takes more than an egg and sperm to create life- it takes the Creator Himself. In a perfect world, every baby would be welcomed into a house with a picket fence by married parents who have a huge savings account and the perfect relationship, right? Well, perfection is an illusion for us humans, so that is never the case. Perhaps you are unmarried, out of work, in a rocky marriage, or feel you are just not ready to be a parent. While those are valid reasons to be concerned, Jesus promises us that He can overcome any tough situation. “In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33.

My advice is that you pray continually for the Lord to help you to connect with your baby in your womb. He wants us to be the parents He has called us to be, and I know He will honor that prayer. If you have been experiencing thoughts of wanting to lose your baby, confess them, let them go, and rebuke them if they return. “We take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.” 2 Corinthians 10:5. Do the same with the guilt you feel for not wanting this baby. Don’t allow it to torment you and keep you from the joy of motherhood. God can make all things new.
