Reaching Out

by Admin

I was 18 when I had an abortion. My parents were teen parents and the one thing my family pressed upon me was to not get pregnant. I had just found out about the pregnancy and was still struggling with the situation when I had to attend a family dinner…. for mother’s day. My family kept saying how proud they were of me for not getting pregnant. The father didn’t pressure me, but he made it known that he didn’t feel ready. We moved forward with an abortion. I’ve regretted it every moment since. I think of how old they would be and what milestones we’d be celebrating. The intensity of the pain grows as I realize I may not get the opportunity to become a mother. I haven’t been able to conceive since. I’m 39 and running out of time. I wonder if it’s punishment. It’s my biggest regret. Coming across this site is due to my very first steps to seek help and healing. I feel completely broken.

I had two abortions when I was younger. I lived with regret and fear for over 20 years. I thought I could no longer handle living this life on my own. Around a year ago when I could no longer handle one more thing I asked God for help. My marriage was falling apart, I was diagnosed with diabetes, then Covid. I started having panic attacks, and Hurricane Laura hit our city. While I was evacuated for the hurricane I called out to the only one I hoped could help me. I said God Help Me!!! It felt like warm oil was poured all over me and I had a wonderful encounter with Jesus. I was washed by the blood of Jesus! I want to tell everyone who has had an abortion that you can he forgiven and find healing from depression and anxiety that the devil makes you feel after having an abortion. Call on God to help you. Jesus died on the cross over 2000 years ago for every sin. Jesus loves you and wants you to be free. God loves you and He has never turned anyone away. He’s waiting for you to talk to Him. Jesus will set you free. You must confessed with your mouth that you are a sinner and ask for forgiveness and declare God as you Lord and Savior and you will be saved. Your name will be written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.
We are all sinners. Accept that you are a sinner and you need a savior and ask Jesus Christ to save you. Look at the cross and what Jesus did for us. Jesus died on the cross so that we could be free from sin. He became sin and was resurrected 3 days later. There is nothing too big for God. Talk to him today!!! Do not let fear keep you from receiving forgiveness and everlasting life through Jesus Christ. Jesus is Lord!!!! He will set you free!
Father, I pray that this speaks to someone today. I pray that whoever reads this has the courage to call on the King of kings and the Lord of lords today.
Lots of love and encouragement to you from me.
