Abortion may bury our children, but it can never bury their memory. Despite all our efforts to stuff away our guilt and shame, something remains. God wired us that way. Children are created to be born. Fathers are created to protect. Mothers are created to nurture. These truths remain regardless of the circumstances in which each child is brought into being.
And yet for many of us, it is too late to turn back the clock. Like me, many have already made that tragic choice. In time we may come to embrace God’s forgiveness. Even so, we may continue to suffer in silence. We simply have not yet embraced the life and memory of our child.
When God allowed me to experience a heavenly encounter where I saw my daughter whom I had lost to abortion, I sensed He wanted me to tell my story. However, Worthy of Love is so much more than the story of one woman’s journey. It is a reflection and reminder of God’s tireless pursuit to draw each of us to Himself. He does this so that He can heal our deepest hurts and redeem our painful scars. Scars hidden so deep that, if left ignored, will forever hold us back from all that God desires for our lives.
Over the years, I’ve spoken to countless of women. There are those who recently experienced abortion and others in their nineties still bound by the grief and shame. One thing I’ve found: time does not heal our wounds. In fact, it buries them deeper. But Christ came to set us free so we can know the fullness of His love and the joy-filled life He intended. For each of us who has made this painful choice, there is a story deep in our heart that wants to be told. Worthy of Love will help you find it.
