It took courage for you to share the feelings and emotions you've been experiencing over the past year. Maybe it will encourage you to know that you are not alone. I'm with Focus on the Family, and many women have written to us expressing similar feelings of guilt over a past abortion. I encourage you to take a look at the booklet Healing the Hurt
as well as the article "Changed
" both of which can help you process some of the things you've been feeling.
Another things I'd like to convey to you is that God loves you, and forgiveness is available to you in Jesus Christ. If you’d like to discuss this at greater length, please feel free to contact Focus on the Family’s Counseling Department Monday through Friday between 6:00 A.M. and 8:00 P.M. Mountain time at 1-855-771-HELP (4357). Our counselors would be pleased to assist you in any way they can.
I hope you'll look into some or all of these suggestions. In the meantime, I'll be praying for you, asking God to reveal His healing presence to you in a special way. May His grace and peace surround you and protect you in the days ahead.
