I call you a mother because you are. You might be shocked. You’re the CEO of a company. You have a life. You are certainly NOT a mother. But, friend, you are. You were a mother, even if only for a few months or even weeks. So you are a mother. I believe that babies who can’t make a choice for themselves go to heaven. Not because they have not done wrong, but because they could not choose Jesus as their savior. You might wish you didn’t make that choice. It all happened so fast. Maybe you were a teen. The thought of being a ‘teen mom’ was sickening, to say the least. You worried about acceptance. You were already not popular, so what would this do your social life? Would anyone ever accept you again? The pressure of those around you to have an abortion was so strong. It was quick and easy. Or so you thought. But here you are, still thinking about it. Still thinking about that little life inside of you. That you’ll never see again. That thought is truly sickening. Then again, you might be glad. “I succeeded because I don’t have children.” Is your thought. You might even be glad that you won’t ever know your baby.
But I’m not here to talk about the wrong that you did. I’m here to talk about my Lord and savior, Jesus Christ. He loves you. That will never change. He will never leave you.
Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”
-Deuteronomy 31:6 NIV
Do you trust in him? My friend, if you don’t, His arms are open wide. He will welcome you with joy and gladness. He loves you. And that’s what I want you to know.
It doesn’t matter what you say or how you say it. All you need to do is trust that Jesus died and rose again for YOU. Ask him to come into your heart and save you.
And, dear mother,
I’m praying for you.
