It’s hard to believe that a year ago my life changed…in more than one way. Not only did I find out that I’m an abortion survivor, but I realized that God had different plans than I had for my life. It was for the better, don’t get me wrong, but I could NEVER have planned for it.
It has given me a voice for my twin and the millions of babies that have been silenced. The things in my life that didn’t make sense before all of sudden held a significant meaning…I found out I had a brother which made sense of the longing I had for a brother (and confusion) as a child. (It’s been comforting to know that he’s in heaven with his creator and I will see him again and the day that we were torn apart in the womb will be a celebration for all the lives that have been saved because of this story! ) This year has been my biggest blessing. Something that was meant to completely harm me and meant for evil has given me a story of God’s faithfulness and made me truly believe that Christ is the Solid Rock I stand on. He has given me opportunity upon opportunity to share my story with thousands of people so that when He comes, this world will be a world of LIFE. Jesus was not only victorious through my birth but he is and will be victorious when He comes again. He will say “well done, my good and faithful servants,” because we believe in and defend LIFE- his creation! MY LIFE AND MY SUFFERINGS ARE NOT A CURSE….. GOD’S PLAN WAS BIGGER
Through all of this He has brought me to my knees, told me to let go of all my pride and put me in a situation where I could no longer rely on my own strengths and abilities but have to completely submit to his plan. His plan proved to be greater than I could ever have “planned” because thousands of lives can NOT be touched single-handedly; only through the hands and feet of Jesus.
He let me be his hands and feet. I will never know why but I am so humbled.
Through the past year, God has touched people’s lives all over the country through this God-given story of his grace, mercy and love. People are attracted to my story because they realize they are not the only ones that are broken. They realize that God is the only way to make sense of all the brokenness in this world. I’ve been able to share my experiences, my brokenness, and my sufferings with the world but ultimately I’ve been able to express my need for a merciful God. Without it, I would not be where I am today.
Last year THIS MONTH, I was called out of my comfort zone to go on stage, in front of crowds of people and talk about one of the most offensive, controversial and scariest subjects in this day and age. I was called to let ME go and serve others every day of my life. Today I am still the same average girl; I am just letting God use me. It’s amazing what God can do with one small person who is willing to be used. I am so grateful and humbled that he CHOSE ME to use in such an amazing way- defending his most sacred creation: LIFE.
THANK you to everyone who has supported me through the past year. I am in awe of all the people God has placed in my life along the way. He was always faithful and so were my wonderful friends and supporters. God has used each of you and God will surely bless you. I hope that you will join me next year and the years to come in standing up for women, men and their families because LIFE is worth it.
Many Blessings to each of you this Thanksgiving Holiday. I am truly THANKFUL!
This Thanksgiving I will be celebrating the separation of my twin and I, and that one day we will meet again…..but until then, I will remain “His Voice.”
I am passionate about life & God in a down-to-earth & personal way.
