Life is all about choices, sometimes we make the right choices and unfortunately sometimes we make the wrong choices. Mary had been involved in bible study for 2 years when she showed up at my gate unwed and pregnant. The women in the bible study stood beside her and helped her as she became a single parent. When she told us her boyfriend was going to move in with her, we confronted her with the Truth of what the Bible says about it. She became more and more distant over the next couple of years and rarely attended bible study. Not all stories have the “happily ever after” that we read about, but I am thankful to tell you about how our God has restored Mary beyond any hope I had…He never gives up! Mary showed up at my door recently with her now 3 year old and told me how God had been working in her life and she realized she was not living a life that would be pleasing to God. She told her boyfriend that they could no longer live together and that she wanted to do what was right and get married. He told her he did not want to marry her, so she is no longer with him. She now is happier than I have ever seen her as she has experienced the FREEDOM that is found in Christ. God is working in her life and she is starting back in bible study. Thanks be to God for never giving up on us!
