God is known for showing up in the middle of hard situations, providing a quiet strength with a solid foundation. Our opposition can be loud, but the size of the enemies’ roar doesn’t ensure a victory. The pro-abortion movement is loud. Women who face an unexpected pregnancy are hearing empty promises and offers of help from places like Planned Parenthood. However, when God’s people stand together as one, our voice can be heard. Our voice of hope can reach them. Our message of truth can ring out and be heard by the women who need us. As the pro-life movement grows, so does our impact on the women who will receive the true freedom.
God commanded us to be the hands and feet of Jesus, to be salt and light to the world (Matt. 5:13-16). Our foundation of faith compels us to do all of this and our biggest hope is to save and change lives, one at a time, not just by being loud, but by offering the exact message women need to hear when they need it the most. The fleet across our country of the mobile medical units are those hands and feet.
When woman have options and the ability to make choices, they are empowered to take control of their lives. We want that for them, and we want that control to be guided by the love of a Savior. A Savior who shows them that the only true choice is life. Only one life needed to be given up. His. All others receive freedom through His sacrifice and promise of a future (Jer. 29:11). Freedom isn’t found in abortion. A lifetime of bondage to regret and darkness can be the only result in a choice to terminate life.
At ICU Mobile, we take our resources on the road, into the places where women need us. Every street we travel receives the message of our mission through the very presence of our mobile units. Yes, we provide ultrasounds, pregnancy tests, and guidance to every woman who turns to us for resources and answers. More importantly, we offer each woman the resource to choose eternal life for herself. A woman who hears and knows that she is worthy, that she is valued, and that there is no shame in her situation, is empowered to choose life. She’ll choose life with confidence and peace. She’ll choose life knowing that Jesus chose life for her so her greatest calling is to choose life for her own child. And, she’ll choose life knowing that life is what truly sets her free. (Gal. 5:1).
Being a daughter of the One True King is the ultimate empowerment a woman needs because of the incredible sacrifice that’s already been made for her and her children. True freedom through faith.
For I know the plans I have for you,’ says the Lord, ‘plans for well-being and not for trouble, to give you a future and a hope. – Jeremiah 29:11
