Often times in our lives we are faced with difficult situations that have more than one possible outcome. We come to a crossroad and must choose one, and only one, road to take. But, nonetheless, there are different options to choose from and ultimately one will be the only one to get us to where we need to be. The other roads may seem like the right one for a bit, but eventually we realize we have caused us to stray farther from our goal in life.
After counseling women in the offices and on the streets for almost a month now, I have heard so many of them say, "But I have no other choice" or "I have to do this, I can't go back." This is because our culture, the media, Planned Parenthood, and countless others continue to lie to these women by telling them that they only one "choice" (which isn't much of a choice if there is not another option) and that they can't go back.
The reality is that these women find themselves at a crossroad and they do have options. Unfortunately, for some women, the right choice is not always the easiest one at first, but with love, prayers, and support it is a road that can be traveled. Also, there is hope for those who have started down what they see as a One Way Street to Planned Parenthood. They can turn back and fight the oncoming traffic and go down the right road. This choice is also a very difficult one, but again, it is one where they can find love, prayers, and support if only they open their hearts and minds.
Lord, please open these women's minds and hearts to your tender love and care. Help them to find You in their hour of suffering.
