You might feel a mix of emotions
With an unplanned pregnancy perhaps you feel confused, scared, even a little excited, under pressure or just overwhelmed. Often feelings drive our decisions. We look for hope. Who will I run to? Where can I find rest?
At HOPE we care about women in your kind of situation and are here to listen.
Something to think about – you are loved
Love is the selfless devotion of one person towards another. It can seem so hard to find. Even the best of partners or friends fail. We all fail.
However, there is someone whose love does not fail.
Jesus Christ says what only God could say:
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest... rest for your souls.
Matthew 11:28–29, the Bible
The God who made you loves you – this is what life is about.
Sometimes words of encouragement can sound simplistic and unhelpful. You might respond: 'How do you know?'
Yet a simple promise can change everything – if we believe the one making the promise is strong enough. Jesus Christ simply calls you to come and know Him – He says, 'Trust me'.
The main way God loves us is to show and give us Himself.
At HOPE we give equal value to mothers and their babies. All of us started our lives in the womb. Both then and now, we want you to know that you are loved.
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Psalm 139:13–14, the Bible
