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.
