God’s Word Trumps Hillary Clinton’s Beliefs On Abortion

This has been on my mind so much the last few days. This morning I looked up the scriptures about God’s words remaining. It was very important that it is written 3 times in the New Testament. Matthew 24:35  Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. Mark 13:31 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away. And in Luke 21:33 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.

Last week I read an article on Lifesitenews.com  about Hillary Clinton saying  Religious beliefs against abortion must be changed.  When I read this I just shook my head and said Lord help us.

We live in a World today that is so messed up. It’s like what is right is now wrong and what is wrong is now right. Wrong, Wrong and Wrong again.

The Word of God has always been and always will be. God has always been and he always will be God.  Acts 4:12 says, Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. 

Hillary Clinton can not make people change what they Believe in. She will never make me change what I believe in and I am 100% Pro-life Noexceptions.  Not only is it that I believe abortion is murder, but it also says in the Bible “Thou shall not kill.” Since the Bible is the written word of God and God’s word remains abortion will always be murder.

To be Accepted

Acceptance

 

Waking up this morning I thought about being accepted. With being adopted I can relate with many adoptees that struggle with rejection issues and have a hard time with being accepted. With being adopted myself I struggled with rejection and acceptance issues. Within the first 8 weeks of my life I was in the hospital for a week and my birth mother and I had some bonding time, than I went to foster care for about 6 weeks and then to adoptive home. A lot of people make think because I was a baby and don’t remember that time that it should not have affected me.

The need to feel accepted and to be accepted is something that everyone at sometime or another probably struggle with. Not an easy thing to go through because then you feel alone and that no one cares. What we forget to remember is that Jesus Christ cares for us and he accepts us.

I was looking for some verses this morning on being accepted and there are some that I want to share.

Ephesians 1:6 To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.

1 Peter 5:7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

I am so thankful I have a God who accepts me and cares for me. He sees the sparrow that falls and he sees everything that we do and he cares for us and we are valuable to God.

Chosen..As A Secret Weapon

Chosen by God

 

Ever since I have shared my story in church, it seems that I have been hearing my Pastor taking that stand against abortion more than ever. Just the other day I was thinking the other day when is he going to mention abortion again, and it happened last night.  Last night my Pastor preached on this topic Chosen..As A Secret Weapon. Immediately I thought about the many babies that could have been aborted, but were saved and protected from an abortion.  I then thought about all those that I have met that were also conceived in rape and mothers from rape. I thought God these that are conceived in rape and mothers from rape are secret weapons that you are using to be a light and more and more are coming out and letting their voices be heard.

 

The Scriptures that my Pastor used are from Isaiah 49:1-5

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The Lord hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name.

2 And he hath made my mouth like a sharp sword; in the shadow of his hand hath he hid me, and made me a polished shaft; in his quiver hath he hid me;

3 And said unto me, Thou art my servant, O Israel, in whom I will be glorified.

4 Then I said, I have laboured in vain, I have spent my strength for nought, and in vain: yet surely my judgment is with the Lord, and my work with my God.

5 And now, saith the Lord that formed me from the womb to be his servant, to bring Jacob again to him, Though Israel be not gathered, yet shall I be glorious in the eyes of the Lord, and my God shall be my strength.

 

When my Pastor read these Scriptures, some things hit me.  God knew how my conception would come to be, and God alone called me from the womb and from the depths of my mother he made mentioned of my name. God knew my name would be changed and what my name would be even before I was born.

 

God has given us a mouth to use to speak the truth. We must always speak the truth. Standing up for the life of the unborn with being 100% Pro-life No exceptions is standing up for truth.

 

God has kept us in the shadow of his hand. God protects us and going through life God polishes the rough edges and makes us into secret weapons that he wants use for his glory.

The Value of One by Fred Hensley

I thought I would share something my husband wrote last August.

Fred HensleyOne – unique, solitary, single, special, alone, no other one like you, you are special, you have fingerprints and DNA like no other one in the world. God says that we are special. A little sparrow that falls is so insignificant that no one in the world will ever notice that the sparrow fell, but God took notice that it did. And Jesus says how much more valuable to God are we than that little sparrow. The religious leaders looked down on the widow woman for giving her two mites, equal to less than a penny in today’s world. Jesus notice that she gave all that she had and said that she had given more than all the others who had given much in the offering. Jesus said whosoever will let him come and drink of the water of life freely. God is no respecter of persons. One life is just as value to God as any other life. Whosoever means anyone from anywhere who was born in this world under any circumstance whatsoever. Definition of one is the lowest cardinal number, refers to a person or thing mentioned or easily identified, a person of a specific kind. Recently, I listened to a three-part series on Family Talk, hosted by Dr. James Dobson, about four women who were born that were conceived in rape and one who is a mother of rape. My wife was also conceived by rape. We have been married for 12 years and only learned this fact back in 2008. Knowing this now only makes me love my wife more than ever before. Why should my wife be punished for being born when it wasn’t her fault for the atrocious act of rape that brought about her conception? What is the value of one when it comes to the time to vote? Some may say “my vote doesn’t matter as one vote will not make a difference”. We have learned in paste elections where every vote does count.

Does one person matter and does it make a difference whether or not that one person is born or not?

Esther was one person and yet she orchestrated and was used of God to save her people from destruction.

It’s a Wonderful Life – George Bailey mattered and the movie depicts that one life does matter. Without George Bailey, Harry Bailey would have drowned as an eight-year old boy. Without George Bailey, a whole transport of men would have died.   Without George Bailey, so many of the citizens in the town would have lived in a potter’s field. Without George Bailey, Mr. Gower would have poisoned a young boy and consequently would have died. As a result, Mr. Gower would have been placed in jail. “Each life touches so many others lives”. “When he isn’t around, he leaves an awful hole, doesn’t he.” The story of George Bailey shows that one man can make a difference. George Bailey was given a great gift, the chance to see what life would be like without him. George wished he had never been born and he got his wish. In the end, George wept and begged that he could have his life back no matter consequential troubles he had to face.

Individuals born in this world no matter the circumstances surrounding the conception are conceived and born for a reason. If God didn’t want the conception to take place, He could have stopped it from happening, but He didn’t. We were formed in our mother’s womb, so no matter how cruel the rape crime is, God allowed the conception to take place and still formed that baby in the mother’s womb. When the baby was born, God still says “I have plans for that little one” even though that one is condemned and made to feel worthless by people in the world. They can say that this one person is worthless, but God says we all have value no matter who we are and where we come from. Jesus says that everyone is valuable so much that He died for the whole world. It doesn’t say that God so loved the world except for those born out of rape. He loved the world, the whole world and nothing but the world. Since God knows the end from the beginning, He already knew those who would have been born out of rape. So the event doesn’t surprise God. But just because one is born out of rape doesn’t mean that this person has no value. The people in the world that are called worthless and made to feel they have no value are the ones Jesus usually calls and uses for His glory and honor.

Four cases of abortion

Ray, Steve. Should This Baby Be Aborted? You Decide. Retrieved from http://www.catholic-convert.com/wp-content/uploads/ Documents/ AbortionDecide.pdf

Case #1. There’s a traveling preacher and his wife who are living in poverty. They already have fourteen children. Now she finds out she’s pregnant with the 15th child. They are very poor and probably will be unable to afford a doctor’s attention. Considering their poverty, the excessive world population, and the number of children they already have, would you recommend she get an abortion? If yes, you would have aborted the world-famous Methodist preacher John Wesley.

Case #2. The grandmother is an alcoholic and the father spends his evenings out drinking in the taverns. His mother has tuberculosis. She has already given birth to four children. The first child is blind, the second child died, the third child is deaf, and the fourth child has tuberculosis. Now the mother is pregnant again. Given the extreme situation, would you recommend an abortion? If so, you would have aborted the great composer Ludwig van Beethoven.

Case #3. A white man raped a 13-year-old black girl and now she is pregnant. Her family lives in extreme poverty; in fact, to survive, they often have to steal food. If you were her parents, would you recommend or require her to have an abortion? If so, you would have just aborted Ethel Waters, the marvelous black Gospel singer

Case #4. A 15-year old girl is pregnant. She is not married and lives in a cave in an outback area with very little money or resources. The man she hopes to marry is not the father of the baby. There is no hospital or doctor available. Would you recommend that she get an abortion? If so, you would have just aborted Jesus Christ, the savior of the world.

Jesus values the one sheep, as He would leave the 99 to go and save the one lost sheep.

The angels of God rejoice when one sinner repents.

Jesus condemned the man with one talent because he failed to use the one talent that God had given to him. So if we cut off a life that was conceived in rape, we have taken away the talent, gifts and opportunities that would have been given to that person that could have made a great impact in the world.

 

 

20 Week Pain Capable Bill by Sherry Hensley

This morning I woke up with a very heavy heart. A few days ago, I read an article on Lifenews.com about the 20-week pain capable bill, which would make it illegal for abortions after 20 weeks because the baby feels pain.  What bothers me greatly is that this bill has the rape, incest and special needs exceptions in it. Congresswoman Renee Ellmers suggests that a woman should only let her doctor know about the rape and no one else.

When I read this, it did not set well with me. I immediately thought about Norma McCorvey, who lied and said that she was raped so that she could have an abortion. I thought if the rape does not have to be reported, this could happen again and could cause more abortions instead of less.

I was conceived in rape, and I had a biological great-aunt who wanted me to be aborted. I thank God that my birthmother said no and did what was Biblical and chose life.

Coming from someone who was conceived in rape, I pray you will take a minute to hear what I have to say. If you were not conceived in rape and had a family member that wanted you aborted, would you put yourself in my shoes for a minute? Should I have to pay for the crime that my birth father did? I don’t think so, as I was the innocent one. My birthfather should be the one who had to pay since he is the one who committed the crime.  Society likes to call people conceived in rape, “the rapist child, monster’s child, a product of rape and an evil seed.”  They are wrong, and since I have been sharing my story, I have got in contact with others who were conceived in rape. They are precious people with a caring heart and are making a difference. They were created in the image of God. I have also read the stories of women who were raped and having their baby brought them healing.

Even though my birth mother placed me for adoption, she told me I have always loved you and that I was the beginning of her healing process.

The devil is the one who wants to steal, kill and destroy. Jesus said I have come to give you life and life more abundantly.

Babies conceived in Rape are created in the image of God.

My heart grieves when I read these stories about babies being aborted every day or reading about babies being found in the dumpster. Very disturbing and heartbreaking.  I have been reading about the 20 week pain capable bill that they want to pass here in the United States. You can say that is a good thing and a step in the right direction to stop abortions after 20 weeks. Let me tell you they are trying to reintroduce this with the No Rape reporting which can mean that a woman can say she was raped and have an abortion up to the day of birth. Heart wrenching!! And to me that is making the situation worse instead of better.

It is heart breaking that the child that is conceived in rape has to continue paying for the crimes of the rapist. Babies conceived in rape are innocent they have done absolutely nothing wrong. You can’t tell the difference of a child conceived in rape and the child conceived out of love.

Conceived in Rape 2a

The woman who was raped needs love and support and she needs to be believed. She does not need people telling her to have an abortion. Having an abortion will only add to the trauma.

There are so many women that have made the decision to have their baby and having the baby did not remind them about the rapist but that child brought them healing and love and saved the life of the mother.

My birth mother who was raped has said, Yes Rape is horrific and traumatic, but what is more horrific and traumatic is the killing of the precious little life growing in the womb.

Babies conceived in rape are created in the image of God and God has plans for them.

Jesus Christ said in Mark 10:14 But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.

Lets continue to fight and pray and God will get the increase.

 

 

 

The Refuge

Psalms 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

Saturday Night I was thinking and I asked my husband what he thinks about when he thinks about a refuge. He said safety, protection. It took me almost 7 years to realize how awesome the word Refuge is in my life. A lot of you know that I was conceived in rape and my birth mother kept me safe and protected me from an illegal abortion.

When my parents, my husband and I met my birth mother we went to eat at a restaurant called The Refuge. It really is Amazing. She kept me safe and it was 35 years after I was born that I met her and we ate at the Refuge. It really made that reunion all the more special and meaningful.

Fight for the Unborn

Aug2013This has been the most amazing week that I have had since I started to share my story.  This week I shared the story with Lifenews.com on Sunday Night to share it with them. Monday while reading an article about abortions in cases of rape and incest, I shared the short version of my story and also gave the link to the long version of my story someone who read it told me, “Sherry you are living testimony of the good that has come out of a horrible situation. God continue to bless you and your birth mother as well.
I have learned so many wonderful things since I have become involved with pro-life. I had never spoken or known a child conceived in rape. I was always so focused on the victim. My mind has been expanded and I thank God. Now I know better and thank God I never had to make such a decision as those brave women did. God bless you all.”

I just share it and tell it God gets the glory. Monday afternoon I received an email from Lifenews.com and they shared the story on their website and a few hours later it hit their Facebook page.

Yes when I take a stand for the life of the unborn I get a lot of negative because I was conceived in rape. Also this week I read a story and was in the conversation as was told that my religious beliefs where meaningless in the conversation.  When I get stuff like this I tend to just laugh it off instead of cry about it. The important thing is to keep sharing it.

Standing up for life is Biblical and one day people will know as to how important my religious beliefs are.

What happened this week is just the beginning of greater things to come in the fight for the unborn.

The impact of one person

Image2aAs most of you know I was conceived in rape and saved from an illegal abortion and then placed for adoption.  I am finally getting back into the swing of things since getting back from my father-in-laws funeral in West Virginia. When we got home my husband was very sick so I took care of him. I thank God that he is doing so much better.

Sunday Night I decided to share my story with www.lifenews.com. I had no idea that they planned to share it or even post it. Yesterday I received an email from them and they posted it on their website and a few hours later it was on their Facebook page.

This is what I posted on Facebook with the current numbers.

As I woke up this morning I am overwhelmed with what God has done through the night. When I shared my story with lifenews.com I had no idea that they where going to post it or even share it. Well they posted the story first on their website and a few hours later it hit their Facebook page. This morning I was curious to see how many people it has reached and the number of people blows me away. Facebook is saying that 535 people liked it and 31 people shared it. That is mind-blowing. On lifenews.com website 671 people shared it on their Facebook pages 97 people shared it on twitter and 14 people shared it on Google+. Talk about the ripple effect this can have.

Lets think about this. If 671 people have 200 friends on their Facebook pages it went to 134,200 people. If 97 people on twitter have a 100 people it went to 9,700 and if 14 people have 50 people in their Google+ circles it went to 700 people. Through this it could have reached 144,600 by now.

It really is amazing as to what God is doing. I give him all the glory and honor. I just share it and tell it. God gets the increase.

Feeling Special

Sitting here thinking this morning about what our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ did for us on Calvary.I tend to feel special at easter time partly because my birthday is very close to easter and at times it will fall on Easter.

I always think about Thank you Lord for dying on the cross for my sins. It does not stop with the cross, but there is an empty tomb. Do you know of anyone else who died on a cross and buried in a tomb and rose themselves up from the dead? The only person that I know is Jesus Christ.

When I found my birth mother I found out that I was born during Holy Week in 1973 and when I got in contact with her it was the first day of Lent in 2008. I know how special it was for me to start having contact with me the beginning of Lent in 2008 and so it was special for me.

What really is mind-blowing is find out that God died on the cross many years ago for a little baby girl who would before she was born help her birth mother heal from something that is horrific, traumatic and her birth mother protected her from an illegal abortion and that baby girl was born during Holy Week is 73.  What the enemy wanted to destroy God turned around for Good.
