It’s no secret that sports star Tim Tebow is unashamedly outspoken of his Christian faith. But, how did Tebow get to be where he his today? Many people don’t know Tebow’s truly miraculous birth story — and the suffering and faith his mother, Pam Tebow, endured to give her son a fulfilled life.
When Pam was pregnant, she was instructed to abort her child by medical professionals. Pam encountered many health complications during her pregnancy; doctors even compared the baby to a “tumor” because of the way her body reacted, reported LifeSiteNews.
Pam, now an outstanding pro-life activist, chose life even though it was a major risk to her health. Previously, Tebow’s mom revealed that she or her son probably shouldn’t have survived the birth, but one simple prayer changed that.
"Well, we chose to trust God. At the time, it didn't seem like a courageous choice. It was the only thing that we knew to do and we wanted to trust God with that little boy we had prayed for,” Pam stated.
She prayed for her son — that he would grow strong. She vowed to name him Timothy and even declared that he would become a preacher. And nevertheless, Tim Tebow was born.
God certainly answered Pam’s bold prayer. Tebow grew up to be a strong college football star who won the Heisman Trophy in 2007. As he continued his love for sports, he shared the Gospel with others through the Tim Tebow Foundation and by praising Jesus in his various media appearances.
Amidst the latest pro-life/pro-choice controversy of lawmakers supporting late-term abortions up until the baby’s day of birth, Tebow’s birth story is a wonderful reminder of the goodness of God. Every life has a purpose according to God’s perfect will.
