Testmony: Teenage Pregnancy
by Ms. Redding
I am a living testimony!
When I was 14 I got pregnant...I was thinking how can this happen to me, I mean everyone was doing it but didn't get caught. I felt so ashamed and embarrassed until I came to the conclusion that I wanted to have an abortion!!!!!!
ABORTION- that is murder that is a sin that is just wrong(these were all the thoughts that were going through my head)I just wanted my life to go back to normal....See I was hard headed. I have this connection with God, He tells me when something is not right for me but once again I let the flesh take over.
I was so afraid to tell my momma until I was praying for the wrong thing. I asked God to get rid of that baby..Now at this point you know that is an insult to God's work. God chose me to carry this child and I was being very ungrateful. God's Grace and His mercy had carried me a long way because instead of a baby I could have contracted AIDS or any STD but He didn't, He blessed me with a child. I had my baby 6 months after I turned 15 and boy I was in for it..How was I going to finish school, how was I going to provide for this child???
But see God stepped in and did all the things I thought I was not able to do..He is good , He really is..See humans are afraid of what they don't understand and it says in the Bible to not lean unto your own understandings.
I graduated on time not to mention all the drama that came from my fellow class mates and the father of my child.
I am 21 years old and I feel like my world is spiraling out of control..I am at a place where God wants me to accept Him and I have to make the right choices. Being chosen to do God's work comes with great responsibilities and you have to stay focused..
