I am officially a volunteer at Crossway Pregnancy Resource Center. It's a pretty intimidating/exciting opportunity.
You see, last year the Lord really spoke to me about a certain change of heart that needed to take place. Those are always awkward conversations. But, my theme for 2011 is that I want to "do right by the Lord" and one way to accomplish that is to take him up on his opportunity to change.
I'm still trying to take it all in. I've never been someone to be extremely vocal on the pro-life/pro-choice debate because I think that it quickly leads many but not all religious folks to fanaticism, which never yields a productive debate. I find the actual procedure of having an abortion just as abhorrent at the Christians that picket outside the clinic.
But, I do firmly maintain that when the Kingdom of God breaks into someone's situation it comes with life, not death. And that is the first and foremost reason that I'm pro-life-that-the-Kingdom-brings.
I'm not sure where I'll find my niche while volunteering at the center; it could be that I do a lot of behind the scenes work or it could be that I really stretch and grind and begin to counsel women intent on abortion.
Either way I'm content with the reassurance that when the Lord reveals to us a poor posture in our heart he will also provide ways to remedy the situation.
Whatever it is.
