It is Well

January 4, 2019

For the woman who has had an abortion, there can be daily struggles with shame, guilt, and self-destructive behavior. Many times, family members are unaware of the abortion and the woman suffers in silence—never expressing her emotions to even her closest family or friends.

Here at Choices Women’s Center, we have a post-abortion Bible study designed to help women overcome the detrimental effects of abortion. In this Bible study, women have a safe place to release their past in the company of other women who understand their pain. The leaders of the study can relate to the circumstances personally—they understand what each client has gone through because they have walked in the clients’ shoes. The study leaders are able to guide the participants to Biblical truths that comfort and provide healing.

For the past 6 weeks, women experiencing post-abortion grief have been attending our Bible study in order to find healing in the power of Christ. Their weekly meetings have “drastically” changed both their feelings towards the abortion and their relationship with Christ, according to one client.

Some of the women admitted that the journey of opening up and allowing God to heal them was not easy. One admitted almost giving up. However, the kind leaders loved and supported them through the whole process. Now they can honestly say, “it is well with my soul.”

If you or a loved one is struggling with post-abortion grief, call our office at (540) 370-1800 to find out more about our next Bible study session starting January 11th.
