The Psalm 139 Project, a pro-life ministry of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, has donated an ultrasound machine to Lifeline Pregnancy Center in Topeka, Kan., as a part of its mission to place 50 ultrasound machines in pregnancy care centers by 2023.

Lifeline Pregnancy Center has served the greater Topeka area for more than 20 years.

In a First Person on Baptist Press, Rick Lance who leads the Alabama Baptist Convention writes, “In this world, we will never really be comfortable, and we should not seek to be. Rather, after praying for wisdom from God which gives godly discernment, we make the decisions and set the directions that our Lord has impressed upon our hearts.

I have come to love more and more the words of Jesus in John 16:33: “In the world you will have tribulation, but be encouraged: I have overcome the world.

The expression used by the Navy Seals, “Get comfortable being uncomfortable,” is an apt description of what the elite warriors must do in order to accomplish their mission. For Christians, the maxim can remind us to seek to be at peace with what the Lord is leading us to do to fulfill our mission. That kind of peace is far superior to being comfortable.”
