Created In God’s Image, Not A Gob Of Goo

It has been awhile since I have had a discussion about the “Hard cases.” The hard cases are the babies who are conceived in rape/incest or have problems in utero. Today was one of the days where the subject was taking a stand against abortion and supporting adoption.

I decided to jump in on the discussion because the topic of rape was brought up. I decided to share the short version of my story. There were those who supported me, and there were those who had their negative junk today. Well, there was a guy who in a round about way referred to babies conceived in rape as a microscopic gob of goo. Did it surprise me that this was said? No. People conceived in rape/incest we are considered the lowest of lows in society. We are deemed to be worthless and that our lives have no value.

I am so thankful that Jesus Christ does not see us as worthless. God uses those that are of low decent and rejects, and those who are nothing to be a witness and to spread the gospel and to educate others so will come to know the truth.

Conceived in Rape 6c

I Corinthians 1:28 in the Holman Christian Standard Bible says “God has chosen what is insignificant and despised in the world–what is viewed as nothing–to bring to nothing what is viewed as something,”

I Corinthians 1:28 in the Aramaic Bible in Plain English says “And he has chosen those of low descent in the world and the rejects and those who are nothing, to nullify those who are,”

Since I have been sharing my rape conception story, God has been opening up doors for me to reach people and to let them know that I am created in the same image of God as anyone else. I am not a thick messy substance, but a person who was conceived in rape created by God to fulfill his purpose in my life. God chose my parents for me and long before I was adopted in the city of Racine, Wisconsin my parents heard my current Pastor preach at a very young age. God ordered my steps, and many years later I met my husband, and we attend Bethel Apostolic Church in Maryland. It was in the church in August of 2014 that God spoke to me in a very profound way to share the story.

Being conceived in rape should not matter what matters is that people will understand that the raped conceived are created in the image of God just like anyone else, and God is fulfilling his plan and purpose in their lives.

An Esther Moment…For Such a time as this

Moment Created

Good Morning Everyone!!

I am so overwhelmed by the Goodness of God. Yesterday I had a meeting with the Executive Director of the Maryland Right to Life. I am also now the President of the Greater Baltimore Right to Life. God placed me in this position. I never asked for it. The Baltimore Right to Life came to me and asked me if I would be willing to do it. This is a door that God opened. I will be attending the State Right to Life Board Meetings, and I will be helping out with the Maryland Right to Life Banquet that they have every year.

When I shared this with my mom, last night she mentioned that she is going to pray that God gives me wisdom, anointing, and his protection. She also said the words “For such a time as this..”

This morning I received a devotional from Neil Vermillion, and this is devotional. It is so profound with the meeting that I had yesterday.

As you step forward in faith, moving toward what I have set before your eyes, you will see circumstances begin to shift. For this is a time for you to advance, a time to progress, a time to engage and initiate. It is a time to take action and begin to pursue goals and implement plans. There will still be a process involved, there will still be work and labor involved, but now is the time to take action and move towards things with eager anticipation.

For there are days of preparation and there are days of planning, but the days of accomplishment and manifestation are upon you, even this day. So do not continue to wait as you plan, but rather plan as you are moving. Do not wait for the “right moment” for the right moment is upon you even now. Take action and move forward in faith though you do not have all the pieces to the puzzle. For in your obedience, and faith, you will see my plans continue to unfold before your eyes in ways that will surprise you.

As you put yourself into motion you will find the missing answers and missing pieces, so do not allow their absence to be a hindrance or delay for you.

Move forward, taking action toward all I have already placed within you. For this is not a time to conceive new plans, to create new ideas, or devise new schemes. But this is the day to launch forward with what’s already been given you. This is the day to step out and move closer to the completion of what has been revealed to you already. So seek no new plans, but move forward with what you’ve been given, trusting, knowing, and believing what you have will be sufficient.

It will not be sufficient for you to finish, but it will be sufficient for you to begin. So look to the tools in your hands and know you’ve been given enough to get you started. And though you need more, more will be given you when you need it as you move forward in faith and trust.

So jump! Today is the day to jump and move and begin. Do not delay. Do not hesitate. Simply move upon all that’s been shown to you already. Take action, for the day of my favor is surely upon you.

 

A New Year of New Beginnings

It is a brand new year. A whole new book of our lives will be written this year. Today is only January 5th, and I have had a lot happen in just the few short days that this year has had. While it is a New Year of New Beginnings, it is also a year of Purpose. God has given to me my purpose and that is to continue to share my rape conception story and to educate and also reach people to God through these things. On Sunday Night, my Pastor gave some really useful guidelines for 2016. While fulfilling my purpose and what God wants me to do, I am going to be asking these questions.

Can You Ask God To Bless It?  Can You Thank God For It?  Does It Give God Glory?  Is it of  The World?  Is It A Stumbling Block To Others?  Is It To Please God Or Man?  Do I Realize The Consequences?  Is It Expedient, Will It Edify?  Will His Indwelling Presence Permit It?  Would I Want To Be Doing This When Jesus Comes? Does It Promote Love?

As you begin this Year ask God what is his Purpose for your life is and then ask these questions. After all one day, every knee shall bow.
