My Baby Boy - A Double Love Story
- Psalm 42:5
Why are you cast down, O my soul?
And why are you disquieted within me?
Hope in God, for I shall yet praise Him
For the help of His countenance. (NKJV)
I became very rebellious as a teenager and left home to live in a room at a friend's house. It was not long before I got involved in dance clubs, night clubs, drinking, heavy smoking and all kinds of other worldly things.
I knew there was a God, and I also believed that Jesus Christ died for all our sins, but I did not know how to apply this knowledge to my personal life. Neither had anybody ever told me that this was necessary in order to become a Christian. I was never taught that one needed to accept Jesus Christ as their personal Savior. I thought being a churchgoer was enough. Sad to say, I became entangled in gross sin.
No Way OutAt that time, I did not go to church anymore, because to me it did not make any difference. Sure enough I was lured into sexual relationships and I became pregnant by a young man who did not want to marry me. Here I was, stuck, with no way out, and no where to go.
I went to one of my friends to get an abortion. She had helped a few girls that I knew. I asked her to help me also. When I came to her place she hesitated and seemed to drag her feet. We had coffee and then she said, "Listen, I cannot perform an abortion on you."
"Why not?" I said.
"I fear you will die if I proceed, and I am not going to do it," she replied.
"Well," I said, "That's nice, leaving me in trouble." Then I left.
I Became DesperateI never told anyone about my pregnancy until I had to make further arrangements for the delivery. I became more desperate as time moved forward, and finally at seven months pregnant, I told my boss. He was shocked, but very supportive. I was close to eight months along before I told my parents. All that time I had struggled with it by myself.
Shortly after the birth of my adorable little boy, I became so desperate I wanted to end it all. Through a miracle I got saved and accepted the Lord Jesus as my Savior. This was a great help and The Lord encouraged me daily.
I started to attend a Full Gospel Church, which was a great blessing. I was loved by everybody, but that did not change the fact that I was single with a baby boy. Often I cried, thinking that I would never be able to find a nice young man who would want to be my husband.
