Never Too Far Gone...
-Hollie (A testimony from baby bottles)
Twenty-five years ago I chose to have an abortion. I cannot tell you how or why I made this decision that has afflicted me in so many ways spiritually, emotionally and mentally. I wasn’t equipped to handle this type of life decision and I was immature, selfish and careless. This decision of not having my baby became the “I’m too far gone” foundation that led to an aftermath of a self-destructive lifestyle of alcoholism and much more.
How do I help convince someone from making this same decision?
Today, I am sober, married to a wonderful man, and I have a 20-year old daughter that I gave birth to at the age of 25, unplanned and alone. I prayed that God would help me and asked for forgiveness for that decision that I have regretted every day. And because of the grace and love of our Lord Jesus Christ, I am blessed to enjoy my beautiful daughter that I love so much.
What grace and mercy He has shown me through out my life! I am so grateful. Today, I know there is no such thing as “I’m too far gone” with God. One of my favorite verses is Psalm 103: 2-4, “Praise the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits—who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion.”
Thank you Pregnancy Resources for all you do. When they offered the baby bottles at church, I knew that I wanted to return the bottle with a donation, and I pray that this helps someone as much as it helped me.
