Amazing Grace: The Story Behind The Song

How beautiful…

God takes our pain, our burdens and uses them…He uses ordinary people to do extraordinary things. I love this video and the story of John Newton’s life.

Also, there’s one more thing I’d like to share…

God bless, dear ones. 🙂

This video is absolutely beautiful. I’m speechless…

Lianna Rebolledo was raped almost 23 years ago when she was only 12-years-old.  This horrific event left her wanting to commit suicide. No matter how many showers she would take she felt she could never be clean again. The suicide attempt  led her to the hospital. At the hospital Lianna learned something that shocked her… she was pregnant.

The doctors at the hospital actually encouraged her to have an abortion. But even though she was so young she knew it was wrong. Lianna had one question ” Would an abortion ease my pain and help me forget about my rape?”  The doctors  answered honestly and told her the memories would never be erased. At that moment she knew she could not get rid of her baby.

“If abortion wasn’t going to heal anything, I didn’t see the point,” she said. “I just knew that I had somebody inside my body. I never thought about who her biological father was. She was my kid. She was inside of me.”

Although situation Rebolledo’s was put is truly unfortunate it is not uncommon. According to Prolife more than 250,000 women are raped in America each year. Rebolledo’s reaction to want to keep her baby is not uncommon amongst rape victims.

Two major study’s found that 3/4 of these victims chose to give birth. These women decided to keep their babies because they believed that abortion would just be another act of violence against their own bodies and their children. The studies also indicated that women believe that their child’s life had some intrinsic meaning or purpose which they did not yet understand. By keeping their babies these women have “conquered their rape” and it has helped them regain their sense of power and self-esteem. The same studies also show that women who have decided to have an abortion experience feelings of depression, guilt, burden, and other burdens.

Rebolledo would agree. Now 35, she says that if she had to go through the horror of her rape all over again just to know and love her daughter, she would. “It wasn’t easy,” she admits, “but it was definitely worth it.”

Rebolledo now lives in Los Angeles and runs Loving Life, a non-profit organization that helps raped and pregnant women. She also travels internationally as a pro-life speaker, sharing her story and the message that every life, no matter how it began, is lovable.

“Abortion is not the solution,” Rebolledo says. “Not even for rape.”

Hear Rebolledo’s entire story by clicking on the video below.

Lianna was raped by two men at knife-point when she was only 12 years old. At first she was unable to cope; but when she found out that she was pregnant, she found her reason for living, and all things turned out well in time.

This video is absolutely beautiful. I’m speechless…

Though we are being hit with blizzards and wintry weather systems around many parts of the nation, beach-weather will be here before we know it.

I love this quote by Jessica Rey from the video:
