I am facedown, yet smiling ear to ear, dancing through my house today. God truly is a God of miracles and a God who can change hearts and save lives! Exactly a week ago, I went online and saw a message on my Woven2Gether facebook page. It was from a girl from Kampala, the capital city. She had been referred to us by an amazing ministry in the United States that helps link abortion minded women and young girls to life giving pregnancy centers around the world. Her name is Tasha.
Her story is like so many. Pregnant, scared, the father leaves, and they are all alone to carry and care for their child. Overwhelmed, she contacted us, and requested that we help her get an abortion. I know the fear of an unplanned pregnancy and so I was able, by Gods grace, to speak into that fear. For two days I talked to her about life giving options. She was certain abortion was the choice that was best for her. I prayed. I loved on her and prayed some more. I rallied prayer warriors to pray for her. I decided to just love on her and talk to her everyday. No matter what she chooses, God loves her, and I didn’t want her to be alone. If she aborted she would need someone to help her pick up the pieces and love her to Jesus. So I decided love wins. So I just loved her, like my own daughter.
Three days ago as we were talking she let me know she wasn’t feeling well. Headache, dizzy and stomach pain. Last night we decided it would be good for her to go to the hospital. God uses all things to the good of those who love Him. Her appointment went well. She is healthy….and so is baby! She is 23 weeks along, even though she thought she was only 3 months along. Baby is doing so good. To be honest I thought maybe she was feeling well because she had aborted, and I was scared something went wrong and we may lose her to. I was so relieved that she didn’t go through with the abortion. I asked her how she was feeling about he baby….her response…”I am so happy”. She starts her antenatal appointments on Monday. She is going to be an amazing momma. I have a new daughter and I am going to be a grandma, the kingdom of God is so amazing. Our family just keeps getting bigger and bigger! There is enough love go around the world and back again when we love with the love of Christ!
Thank you to everyone who prayed for Tasha and her sweet baby. We trust God with both their lives and know that they will do great from now on. She still has a long road ahead of her, and she needs a lot of support and love so please keep her and her sweet little one in your prayers. And remember it is God alone who changes hearts. Love those He puts in your path with everything you have and you will see miracles happen all around you. God is so good!
