Macy Joined The Kingdom!
A young woman, Macy*, came to visit us. She was engaging, looked relaxed, and seemed excited about the possibility of being pregnant.
As we led her through the medical intake process, Macy indicated that she wasn’t planning on becoming pregnant and was not using any form of contraception. Macy and her boyfriend have four children. Macy would embrace having another child, however, her boyfriend isn’t in complete agreement. We explored this important issue with her.
Macy’s pregnancy test came back negative, so we began a discussion about next steps. Our patient advocate worked with Macy to identify decision making needs and support. This process helped Macy consider her normal day-to-day routine and the impact of adding another child to the household.
We then enjoyed a wonderfully insightful, spiritual conversation! Macy declared her belief in God and though she had been baptized as a child, she admitted she had not committed her life to Him. We asked if she had heard the full message of the Gospel. She wasn’t certain.
This provided the perfect opportunity to share the gift of salvation in Jesus Christ by faith alone! Macy said she was trying to live a good life and do all the right things. In turn, we stressed her personal relationship with God, the faith and hope we put in Jesus the Christ, our Lord and Savior, and His divine work on the cross.
The Spirit was moving! When asked if she would like to give her life Christ, she said, “Yes!” We praised the Lord for her salvation! Macy added, “What do I have to do? Do I have to sign something?” After sharing a laugh, we told her this commitment was between her and the Lord alone. We provided a list of local churches and resources to strengthen her faith walk. We prayed for her and her family, for divine wisdom in making important decisions, and increased faith as she follows the Lord.
