Thinking through abortion guilt and grief

Cradle My Heart Today | Lindsay’s Story 11-3-17

God’s word can convict and heal all at once. Watch now:

Lindsay’s abortion was twenty years past, something she’s always regretted.

She says, “One day I read in Isaiah: “Come now, let us reason together,” says the Lord. “Though your sins are like scarlet they shall be as white as snow.””

She says, “I knew I didn’t need to hide that and leave it in the dark any longer. I could think it through and find my healing.”

Our thinking plays a huge role in recovery after abortion. We wonder if a life really was lost, or was it “just tissue”? We may fear we’re condemned. We reckon we’d be rejected if others knew the truth.

Yet, God heals our minds by assuring us mercy through Jesus Christ’s perfect sacrifice on the cross, fully atoning for our sin and soul sickness after abortion.

Think about this: our sins have been removed.

You don’t have to punish yourself or rely on your own understanding. Accepting that abortion as sin means good news because we have the hope of our remedy in Jesus Christ. And when we are his, he also helps us in the grief of loss abortion brings.

“Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the Lord. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.” (Isaiah 1: 18-20)
