Our circumstances are like shifting sands, constantly changing.
With each new moment, nothing on this earth “stays the same.”
However, God declared clearly in His Word that He never changes.
He is the same, yesterday, today, and forever.
His immutability means we have the rock solid assurance that we can always count on Him, even when our life seems to have been turned completely upside down.
He tells us to not be afraid, because He is always with us and He never changes!
Audrey was over the moon when she first discovered she was pregnant.
Not only was her family supportive and excited, she was madly in love with her boyfriend and thrilled to start a family with him.
However, her joy quickly turned into despair a short time later when he told her he had changed his mind about the pregnancy.
He no longer wanted her to have their baby – and if she did, he would not help, nor be a father to their child.
Shocked and devastated, Audrey searched the internet for abortion options.
Her search instantly triggered Heroic Media’s OAASYS Emergency Response ad and connected her with OAASYS’s Pregnancy Help Center partner in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
She made an immediate appointment to be seen.
Audrey sobbed as she confided to her client advocate why she felt she now “needed an abortion.”
She lived in the housing projects where “everyone knows everyone” and she would have to deal with seeing her now former boyfriend “every day.”
She did not want to have this baby and have him “walk past every day and ‘pretend my kid ain’t his.’”
Moreover, even though her family was initially supportive, they were now encouraging her to have an abortion because of the situation with her ex-boyfriend.
Audrey was also fearful that her child would be resentful if he found out someday who his father was and did not have a relationship with him.
Her client advocate listened with great empathy, and with Audrey’s permission, shared with her the possible physical and mental side effects of abortion.
Audrey was stunned and exclaimed, “Man, this is scary stuff!”
She confessed that she “had no idea what an abortion entailed,” “never would have pictured herself in this situation in a million years,” and “felt a little confused now.”
She scheduled to return for an ultrasound – but did not show up for her appointment.
When her client advocate called her, Audrey joyfully stated that she had chosen life because “after thinking about everything,” she came to realize that she really could parent her child, even without the father.
She shared: “You made me realize this baby is just as much mine as it is his,” and added that “the thought of abortion” was “tearing her up on the inside.”
Most significantly, Audrey saw the rock solid hope she had in an unchanging God.
He would not change His mind like her ex-boyfriend and He would provide her with what she needed to raise her child.
Were it not for your support of Heroic Media’s OAASYS, Audrey would not have been connected with that life-affirming help, truth, and support she needed to choose life.
THANK YOU for helping her stand on the rock solid foundation of a saving, unchanging God!
