For You From The Word

Now finish the work, so that your eager willingness to do it may be matched by your completion of it.  (2 Corinthians 8:11)

For You To Think About

Dr. Ray gave Christina a thumbs-up.  “You and the baby are doing great,” the doctor said kindly.  They chatted a few more minutes about how Christina was feeling and about her plans.

“Have you registered for classes for the fall?” Dr. Ray wanted to know.

Christina shook her sadly.  It was difficult to watch her high school senior friends graduate when she’d given up having that experience this time next year.  “No,” she said.  “I haven’t,” she said.

Dr. Ray tilted her head.  “Why?” she asked.  “You’re a bright young woman, Christina.  You can finish high school – I’m certain of it.”

“But I’ll have a baby to think of,” Christina said.

Dr. Ray nodded.  Then, she pointed to a photograph of a young man on her desk.  “That’s my son,” she said, grinning.  “He was born when I was seventeen.”

It was Christina’s turn to be surprised.

“Don’t give up, Christina,” said Dr. Ray.  “You can do this.”

For You To Pray

Heavenly Father,
Help young pregnant woman persist towards their goals so they can provide for their children.  Place encouraging adults their lives to guide them and point out opportunities.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
