“Places, everyone!” These are the instructions spoken by a director before the cameras roll and filming begins. The actors know their lines, the camera operators are in their places, and the director is carefully observing and ensuring everyone does their part to make the scene a success.
In much the same way, our women’s care clinic mirrors the operations behind the filming of a movie scene. The security guard takes his position to ensure the safety of our staff and the clients who come for our services. The receptionist sits with a smile on her face, ready to greet the first client of the day. The medical staff moves into place fully prepared to serve.
But unlike a movie production, our Director isn’t sitting off to the side in a director’s chair, bellowing commands through a megaphone. On the contrary, our Director is in our midst, speaking to us in His “still, small voice” (1 Kings 19:12 NKJV), imparting wisdom, and giving us aptly spoken words.
The Bible tells us, “In their hearts humans plan their course, but the LORD establishes their steps” (Proverbs 16:9 NIV). By providing our staff with professional training, we make every effort to ensure they are fully equipped to serve hurting women. And yet, we can never prepare for every possible situation.
But we don’t despair. Why?
Because the God of Justice in Action is present and available at the front door, at the reception desk, in the counseling rooms, and during every ultrasound. HE is the Director who orders our footsteps throughout each day. HIS power allows us to serve each client with the best care wrapped in compassion and love. The Atlanta Women’s Care Clinic is a rescue center for women seeking death for the preborn. And we are there Monday through Friday, ready and waiting in our places for every woman who enters our doors.
