It is now after midnight...and once again, I cannot sleep.
I am thinking about Pastor Ron's sermon this morning about the Cadet theme. " A cord of three strands is not quickly broken'. This made me think about our mission.
The Bible says that "Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken"
The young women who seek our services may be overpowered by the overwhelming news of an unplanned pregnancy. We are there to defend her...........to defend her against Satan's power to terminate the pregnancy, to put herself in a vulnerable situation, to feel worthless, to feel unloved and lost, to let others convince her that she is too immature to be a good mother etc. etc. etc.
But, we know of a third strand........the power of Jesus and the fact that He will be there to guide and protect them both (the mother and the child).
We must follow this. We know that God will not let us be quickly broken. We MUST stay strong and united with God and each other. We are all meant to do this.
