welcome

img_8447Welcome to Rebekah’s Hope.  I started this blog as my healing journey through my past abortion (nearly 25 years ago).  While I will always deal with the consequences of that day, God has truly used my experience for His glory.

This weekend we braved the winter elements and traveled to Minnesota to visit the Mall of America.  We haven’t had a road trip in a while and have always wanted to go…so my husband and I thought, why not!

On our way we went past this city.  Menomonie.  This reminded me of the muppets skit: Mahna – Mahnam.

It’s really only funny if you remember the skit, so I found the youtube video for you below.  🙂 My husband caught on pretty quickly because he wouldn’t answer my questions anymore.

I would ask, “What city is that?”
He said, “Menomonie”
I’d say “do do do do doot…doo doo doo doot.”

Let’s say it was stuck in our heads the whole trip.

fresh starts

We are preparing for another abortion healing group to begin.  Whenever we start a new group there are many feelings that follow.  Even though I have a few under my belt…I still doubt my abilities.  But then I look back to the beginning and I see how far I have come.

We are all at different parts of our journey in life.  We all have different goals, lives, hopes, dreams.  I can say that without a doubt this is the journey that God has laid before me.  This is the road I am meant to travel.

One of my favorite verses…

Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.  Hebrews 12:1-2

I want to run the race that has been set before me.  I want not to grow faint or weary, but do all of this for the glory of God.  If I can allow God to work through me then I have nothing to fear.  I don’t have to bear a giant “A” on my soul.  No longer does that have power over me.  But God has given me power over it.

So in the end, that is what I am fighting for.  Freedom.  Freedom for these women that are going to come to the group the first day not knowing the journey that lies before them.  But they are powerful for just taking that first step in their healing.  They are courageous for trusting someone else with that secret that they held on to.  When I look at them, I see me.
