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.

Last September I gave birth to a beautiful little boy conceived in rape. In Him I see God’s grace and perfect design. From the foundation of the world all these children, regardless of how they were brought into the world, were chosen and are precious to Him…And should be to us.
Thank you for this piece.
Thank you so much for choosing life for you son. I too was conceived in rape. You are welcome.
