Unplanned

For Such a Time as This

Shorty after becoming a Christian, Robia sensed that her twenty-year career in Hollywood as a professional dancer and actress was coming to a close. She followed the prompting of the Lord and launched into full-time ministry in 2004.  Over the past fifteen years, Robia has traveled extensively, now using her God-given gifts of communication and expression as an artist for the Kingdom of God. She is a sought after church and conference speaker. Her teaching specializes in emotional healing, experiencing the presence of God, and encountering the person and power of the Holy Spirit. Robia had no intention of returning to acting or to Hollywood, but God had another plan. Through an “only God” series of events, Robia was introduced to the writers of the hit film, God’s Not Dead. They shared the story of their latest project, Unplanned, and invited Robia to audition. Shortly after auditioning, Robia was offered a leading role as Cheryl, the clinic director of Planned Parenthood.

At first, Robia was wary of the intensity of the role and subject matter but quickly had a strong knowing that she was to play this character in this “for such a time as this film.” Once on set, there was a feeling in the air and camaraderie between the directors, producers, cast and crew that what was being created corporately was far larger than the individuals involved. There was a sense that this film had the potential to shift culture, and that Unplanned was not your average movie, but could usher in a movement. There was a holy weightiness in the atmosphere, yet there was also tremendous warfare. The resistance to this message reaching audiences, while not tangible, was palpable.

One unique and interesting aspect of the Unplanned set experience is that there was a paid intercessory prayer department! A powerful team of men and women prayed throughout the day over the project, the crew, and the actors. Prayer was vital in pushing through the barriers to bring this movie to fruition.

The message at the heart of Unplanned is one of love, redemption, and hope.

With the release of Unplanned comes a great opening for healing-both individually and culturally. There is an opportunity for each of us as Christ-followers, and especially leaders in the body of Christ, ministers and pastors, to allow Unplanned to become a springboard to transfer this important topic out of the darkness and into the light. With gentleness and compassion, we can provide those impacted by abortion a safe and judgment-free space to release shame and regret and receive healing from our loving and forgiving heavenly Father.

This message of freedom and wholeness aligns perfectly with Robia’s ministry and is the crux of her book, Counterfeit Comforts. In regard to the effects of emotional trauma, whether abortion, abuse, betrayal, abandonment, etc… all of the feelings we are not dealing with are dealing with us. We often seek relief from repressed pain by turning to comforts such as food, alcohol, shopping, cigarettes, sex, and other counterfeits to find temporary relief, but we can become enslaved by these counterfeits. Only the Holy Spirit, the true Comforter, can offer true relief and healing at the place of our wounding. Watch the video below to embark upon your journey of healing and to experience the presence of God more fully in your life.
