Turning to God after abortion

Cradle My Heart Today | Rhonda’s story 5-16-17

Rhonda had always felt in her heart that abortion was somehow wrong. Listen now:

But she chose to listen to those who said it wasn’t a baby, and it was just a woman’s choice.

Afterwards, excuses and defenses put up against the truth only made the pain worse.

Counseling didn’t help, and only increased her confusion and hopelessness.

But with the help of an after-abortion Bible study, Rhonda learned that seeking God’s best channels our sorrow his way.

The worldly sorrow of self-justification is a spiritual dead end. Godly sorrow means repenting—admitting our part in the abortion decision. This repairs our emotions as God wipes out our sins and refreshes us by healing our hearts.

After we sin, the natural impulse may be to hide or turn away from God. If instead, we turn to God from the problem, our hearts can be made new.

Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death. See what this godly sorrow has produced in you: what earnestness, what eagerness to clear yourselves, what indignation, what alarm, what longing, what concern, what readiness to see justice done. 2 Corinthians 7:10-11
