Defunding Planned Parenthood

VALUES_Fbk_FoundationForABetterLife

I am sure that many of you are well aware of the two undercover videos that were put out in the last couple of weeks about planned parenthood selling baby body parts. It is sickening. Not only is it sickening but they are doing things that are illegal. With the recent events of this the Senate and Congress are wanting to defund abortion altogether or at least that is what they want you to think.
If you read these bills, you will see that they have the rape/incest exceptions in them. I am appalled by this as well as upset. Once again our Congress and Senate is saying that my life does not have any value and neither to others who were conceived in rape/incest. God created us in his image and to him we are all valuable. The United States has turned her back on the very foundation that it was built upon. The Word of God.

Luke 6:48-49 (KJV) says, ” He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.  But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great.”

It is heartbreaking that our government is not standing for biblical principles. It is sad to say but when will they realize that they are not valuing all life from to natural death. Will they realize it when they stand before God one day and have to give an answer?  I urge Christians that have a backbone stand up for the Value of Life and also take a stand for things that are Biblically Correct not politically correct.

The Power Of Your Testimony

If you struggle with wondering if your testimony that you share is changing people. Rest assured it is. When I first started to share my Rape Conception story, I struggled with it. Am I making a difference? The more that I share it, the more I see God at work.  I trust God at all times and Trust that he is changing hearts and minds when I share my story. It is rewarding when you can see it.
I would like to share with you one of those moments. Yesterday on Lifenews.com Facebook page was an article about Mike Huckabee, saying Defunding Planned Parenthood is not enough; We must end Abortion. As I read through the comments, one comment hit me, and I would like to share the conversation with you.

 
Person: Hey Mike…….have you ever been raped.

Me: I was conceived in rape. My Life matters and so do all the unborn babies who are conceived in rape. We should not have to pay for the crimes of our birth fathers.
Person: Sherry I never thought of that…..thanks for the insight….will do some rethinking.I sent the person the link to my story and told them that I will pray that it will help them.

I prayed for the person, and I waited for the person to respond and this morning I checked to see if there was a response and there was. This is the response; I am glad I got a chance to see the other side of this topic……I will give it some serious thought…..thanks for sharing your story…….it helps me in my thinking, and I do understand your point. And I do think your right. And will pass it on to others……thank you.

 
God takes difficult situations and turns them around for good. I am so Thankful that God told me to tell and share my Rape Conception story.

The Atrocity of Planned Parenthood

0

Recently a video has gone viral about planned parenthood selling organs of unborn babies that have been aborted. The pro-abortionists have such a twisted way of thinking. One minute the “fetus” is just tissue and the next the “fetus” has human organs. As I write this today, I am grieving inside because of the way our nation has gone and the lack of leadership that our government has. It tears me up inside when I hear the government say they want to protect our children, but will not take a stand to protect the life of the unborn. Murdering the life of the unborn is atrocious and horrific.
While it is grieving to me to hear about the things that Planned Parenthood does murdering an unborn child and protecting vital organs because they have value. I am grateful for people like Senator James Lankford of Oklahoma who stood up and said “That child has value, we all were once 20 weeks in the wombs of our mother.” Senator James Lankford also stated that we should start over as a nation. As I listened to Senator Lankford, I thought about a conversation that I had on Saturday with Jack Ames, the founder and director of Defend Life saying, We as a country have forgotten God. I totally agree. We as a nation need to start over as the nation that God intended for us to be. I am also reminded of a song by 4Him, “Basics of Life”. It is time that America gets back to the Basics of Life and the Basics of Life begin with a heart that is founded in Christ.

 

It is through situations like this that just confirms what God so profoundly to me to do last August. That is to share my story and tell it.

That I May Know Him

That-I-may-know-him

Think about this question. How well do you know your parents? How well do you know your brother or sister? How well do you know your boyfriend/girlfriend? How well do you know your spouse?

My husband and I have been married for 13 years, and there are times where we just know what each other is thinking. Was it like that in the beginning? No. It happened over spending a lot of time with each other. When you spend a lot of time with someone, you really get to know them.

Trying to figure out what to write about today was a challenge. I had to keep thinking and reading scriptures until something stuck with me. Well, then the thought came to my mind “That I may know Him.”

Philippians 3:10

“That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;”

This verse has got so much in a few short words. How well do you know him or how well do you want to know him?

We can know him on a very personal and intimate level. Let’s take a look at this verse.

God is all powerful. Yes, Jesus died but he rose again. When we fall or stumble let’s not stay down but call on his name, and he will help us get back up.

Jesus had suffered greatly in the garden before he was betrayed. His flesh did not want to go through with it, but he prayed not my will but yours Lord.  Personally I think he is the one that went through more suffering than anyone of us has ever gone through. Yes, we have situations that we face every day and sometimes they are not fun and seem to go on forever. Instead of getting the attitude why am I going through this or that let’s look at what Jesus went through and Thank him and Praise and Worship him in the middle of our situations.

Conformable means to be submissive or patient. We need to wait on him while we go through life. When everything is going well, we need to trust God, and when everything is going bad, we need to trust God and wait on him.

The more time we spend with him, the more we will know him and we will be able to Praise, Worship him in the middle of our situations and be willing to be patient and submissive in the middle of it all and watch how it all works out.

Are You Ready For Your Miracle?

Miracle

John 11 Now a man named Lazarus was sick. He was from Bethany, the village of Mary and her sister Martha. 2 (This Mary, whose brother Lazarus now lay sick, was the same one who poured perfume on the Lord and wiped his feet with her hair.) 3 So the sisters sent word to Jesus, “Lord, the one you love is sick.” 4 When he heard this, Jesus said, “This sickness will not end in death. No, it is for God’s glory so that God’s Son may be glorified through it.

The Bible says we don’t have because we don’t ask. We have to come to him and ask and believe that he will do what we asked because he can do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask.

Will the answer always be the one we want? Lazarus was sick and was very close to Jesus. I wonder if Mary and Martha felt that Jesus is on his way Lazarus will get better. But Jesus didn’t show up, and Lazarus died.

What now. Their brother was gone. Their hearts were broken. Sometimes while we wait on God to answer our prayers, it can difficult, frustrating and we can even say where are you, Jesus. We have got to keep walking this walk.

Yes, it may look like what you asked God about is dead what we don’t know is that God is working on it.

Finally, after Lazarus had been dead for a couple of days, Jesus finally shows up. Well to Mary and Martha they knew their brother would rise again they didn’t know what was about to happen. That is the same way with us the situation may look like nothing is getting done, and all of hell has come against us things just get worse and worse instead of better. When all of hell is coming against us, we need to rejoice and keep pressing forward. Just when you think that the prayer will not get answered, and doubt tries to set in and all kinds of things Jesus will show up. He has to show up. He said he would never leave us or forsake us.

Was Mary and Martha prepared for what was about to happen?  I don’t think so. When Jesus stepped on the scene, everything else went a whole different direction.

Are you ready for your Miracle? It may not come the way you wanted or the timeframe you wanted.  What you asked God for and felt like it had died get ready for your miracle because when Jesus steps into the situation everything else changes.

Mercy Endures

0

 

 

One Sunday Evening my husband and I had the privilege to attend my Sister in law’s church and the Pastor was preaching from Psalms 107 and the title of his sermon was “Oh that men would Praise Him.”

The very 1st verse stuck with me. Psalms 107:1

Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.

Let’s take a look at this verse.

We are to give thanks to God at all times for He is good. God is so good. We are to be thankful in the Good times and the bad as well because he is God and he is good.

This is the part that I like. What does Mercy mean? Mercy means to have a Compassion Treatment.  When I think of Endures, I believe of keeping going, lasting, being patient, being persistent, staying the course.

Let’s take that verse and word it different ways.

Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good. For his Compassion keeps going forever.

Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For his Compassion is patient forever.

Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For his Compassion lasts forever.

Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For his Compassion is persistent forever.

Think about that today. What a great God that does not give up on his Children and that his Compassion keeps going, is patient, persistent, lasts forever.

 

Today’s Prayer: Lord Jesus we thank you that your mercy lasts forever and that you have not given up on us. We stumble and fall but your great compassion that you have is so patient, and you pick us up when we fall. We thank you!

The song Mercy Endures is by Hillsong
