I once heard someone say, “There’s a difference between forgiveness and healing,” but it wasn’t until God led me on a twenty-five year journey that I finally understood the profound truth of those words.

Today, many women still suffer in silence. Even, perhaps especially, inside God’s Church. Like me, they have abortion in their past. While they may have come to regret their decision, the choice cannot be undone.

The truth is that all of us have suffered the pain and regret of past choices. The wounds of abortion are especially difficult as we often hesitate to talk about them. Even after receiving God’s forgiveness, many continue to suffer shame and regret in silence. But there is hope.

The Need for Healing

For some of us, even if we receive God’s forgiveness, the struggle to forgive ourselves still lingers. While only God has the power to forgive, our suffering is still real. It exposes the truth that there remains a deep wound in our heart. Even if we have embraced God’s love and forgiveness, the aftermath of our tragic choices can remain – perhaps for a lifetime – if left unhealed.

The reality is that there is a difference between forgiveness and healing: we need both. Have you suffered the heartache of abortion? Do you struggle to forgive yourself? 

I know what that’s like. For years, I kept my abortion a secret. I know what it’s like to suffer in silence. Worthy of Love is more than a Bible study. It’s a journey of hope – and a promise of healing.

Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering.” – Jesus (Mark 5:34 NIV)
