To The Christian Girl Who Regrets Her Abortion.
Dear girl, I’m so sorry. I don’t know the exact circumstances of what led you to have an abortion, but I can imagine. Maybe you were lied to. Maybe you were pressured. Maybe you walked into it with your eyes wide open, but you still thought it was the best choice, perhaps the only choice.
The details don’t matter all that much anymore, do they? No matter how much you might wish to go back in time, abortion is one of those choices that can’t be undone. Chances are, it’s a decision you haven’t talked to many people about, if anybody. Or maybe you have, and the response wasn’t what you had hoped for, what you needed.
Dear girl, I want you to know that I have only love and compassion for you, never judgment. If you are experiencing feelings of regret, pain, or guilt, you aren’t alone. I know, even just thinking about it can bring up those feelings. It’s so tempting to keep it hidden, isn’t it? But Jesus has so much more for you than that.
A radiant life, free of shame, filled with joy, is available to you too. Darkness, secrets, lies, those are all just tools of the devil, opportunities for him to work in your life. Jesus offers you forgiveness, healing, and hope. Nothing good will come from keeping your abortion a dark, hidden secret, a secret that has the power to destroy you. But Jesus? He can bring beauty out of ashes.
Abortion is not an unforgivable sin. It’s a painful one, yes, with lasting consequences. But we’re all sinners, and all sin has the power to destroy us. That’s why Jesus came, to pay the penalty for our sins and conquer death, and when we respond to His gift in repentance and faith, He saves us, He redeems us, and He makes us new. He promises to remove our sins as far as the east is from the west. That includes the sin of abortion.
Your healing journey will be begin by looking to Jesus. It will continue by looking to Jesus. Jesus is always the answer.
