means as a child of God. You don’t have to digest those negative words that people are saying over your life. You have to understand that the power of life and death is in your tongue, not theirs. So, you have the power to condemn every word that they speak over your life that is negative. So, my advice is speak life over yourself and if no one else does that, be like David and encourage yourself, in the Lord. Ask God to renew your mind, pray, enquire of the Lord concerning the season that you’re in. Ask Him, Lord what lessons must I learn in this situation? And also pray for your child, enquire of the Lord concerning your child who you’re carrying. Pray for your child, whilst they’re still in your womb and speak life over your child, and whatever you do, please do not get an abortion. It’s not worth it. And like I said earlier, 2 Corinthians 4:17. I just want to encourage them with this, that your light affliction which is but for a moment, is working for you a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory. So, it’s all working and building something in you because all things will definitely work out for your good. it’s not easy, it’s definitely not easy at all.

Thank you for that. Now, the next thing is, what advice do you have for Christian women whose teen daughters or unwed daughters are pregnant or single mothers? Because sometimes the mother goes through as much criticism and judgment and rejection as the daughter. The women who have daughters who are pregnant or are single mothers, my advice to them is pray for them, take time to check on them, because it’s not easy being a single mum. Don’t criticise them, don’t judge them, because they’ve already done that, they’ve already judged themselves, they’ve already condemned themselves. And also, be there for them and also let your words to your daughter who is pregnant and who is a single mother be edifying like God says in Ephesians 4:29 that it may be edifying that it may minister grace to the hearers because DOZ Magazine September 2018 25 «
