This past Sunday I was honored with an invite to a baby dedication. I’ve spent the last 7 months with her working on her budgeting skills and helping to rebuild her self confidence. She came from an 8 year physically abusive relationship. When she found out she was pregnant, her long-time boyfriend made an abortion appointment for her. She left for her appointment and never returned home again.
As I watched her standing in front of a congregation, holding her newborn, with a smile on her face I felt so blessed to witness the event. I was witnessing the power that the Holy Spirit moves us with. This once battered women, who’s every move was watched and controlled, took charge of her own future. She chose to walk into the unknown to be able to give life to her baby. That is such a priceless decision!
