Are you holding on to unforgiveness after an abortion?


Unforgiveness affects us in a myriad of ways. Your physical health suffers with possible sleeplessness, or too much sleep, anxiety, increased chance for heart attack, and too much stress. Forgiveness begins the steps in healing. 1 John 1:9 says: If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.


Whatever the circumstances of an abortion, whether it was a personal choice or forced upon us, a life was lost and another life was deeply changed. Motherhood begins at conception - a woman's body changes to accommodate carrying a child, and a new human life is developing from the very beginning. Ending that life is a sin. Romans 3:23 reminds us: For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. We all need forgiveness for things!


Talking with God and also people who care about you helps sort out the circumstances of your abortion. You may feel you need to forgive someone else you are angry at for encouraging you to abort. You may realize you need to forgive yourself. There also comes the time when you wish to tell God that you are sorry for the part you had in the ending of your child's life. If you find yourself uncomfortable around babies, emotionally affected by memories of the abortion, or simply wishing you could confide in someone about your experience, please connect with us. Healing from the trauma of abortion is within your reach, friend.
