Aborted My Baby Without Peace

I aborted my baby five years ago and can not except it. Will I ever have peace? How can I ever forgive myself? Maybe if I go to the abortion clinic and talk other girls out of it God might forgive me?

When a woman realizes the repercussions of having an abortion, she may find it difficult to forgive herself. But God does not want us to live with guilt, He wants us to learn from it and use it to our and to His advantage. It will probably require a lot of prayer, which is simply conversation with God. This and studying the Bible helps us get to know God better so that we can be equipped to do His work.

Through faith in Christ, any and all sins can be forgiven (John 3:16, Romans 8:1, Colossians 1:14). A woman who has had an abortion can be forgiven by faith in Jesus Christ.Yes, it is wrong, it is the taking of a life, but it is not unforgivable. The Bible says that there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus (Romans 8:1), and so when we ask Him for forgiveness, He freely offers it. This is not because we deserve it, but because this is the loving nature of our Lord.

Once you become a Christian the old life is left behind and you become a new creature in Christ. All is forgiven if you sincerely repented and ask the Lord His forgiveness. It will take time for you to truly believe God has forgiven you. This is natural, Not only for abortion but for all sins. Many people carry guilt for all kinds of sins. But God has forgiven us if we truly repent. We must believe that and walk in that truth. Let no one make you feel bad about it any longer. God's Word is what counts.

I had an abortion when I was 22. It was a bad choice to make, but my peace came when my relationship with the Lord changed. I started to seek him more for forgiveness and then peace. I still feel sad at times, but my Lord and Savior is the peace. Seek the Lord with your Whole Heart and peace will come.

Patta45555, you need the help of a good clinical psychologist. You have been listening to too many idiots who are trying to put you on a needless guilt trip. In Judaism there has always been a distinction between potential life and actual life. It is impossible to murder something that has never been born or breathed the breath of life. You elected to have a necessary clinical procedure that is perfectly lawful and consistent with Christian ethics. Your remorse is needless, get on with your life.

My heart goes out toyou on this pain, but God can let this pain be a good pain if you let him show you his grace in this.

First I recommend going to a Bible believing pastor and seek to have a memorial service/funeral, and asking God to reveal the gender so you can name him/her at the service.

Then talk to the godly women at the local crisis pregnancy center. You need to help them heal you. They are all trained in helping people just like you.

Please try it, OK?

Dear Lady Trish:Repentance & contrition are the same thing based on genuine forgiveness of sinsthis is what the dictionary says good woman.There is no dictionary in the Bible.
---Emcee on 1/16/08

Emcee: No place in the Bible that I have studied does it say we must show contrition. It says we are to repent, and turn away from the sin. That is all.

God's grace and forgiveness are free gifts, not to be earned, but received with gladness and joy.
---Trish9863 on 1/16/08

Darlene::If forgiveness is Free Then why do we have to show contrition & ask?Why do we have to make amends for our actions?If you fall down do you not have to make an effort to get up or is this automatic?I am sure you know the answer to all of the above.
---Emcee on 1/15/08

Emcee,a few thoughts, forgiveness is free but like receiving a gift from a friend we have to reach out to take it. That means repenting of all sins,accept Jesus. We don't earn God's love/respect,God so loved the world he gave His only begotten son,it's in place. Romans10:9 If thou shalt confess with they mouth the Lord Jesus,and shalt believe in thy heart that God hath raised Him from the dead,thou shalt be saved. Simplicity in Christ,confess,believe,repent,love,obey=in Kingdom.
---Darlene_1 on 1/15/08

Trish:: Romans6:23 is self explanitory if you are slaves to Righteousness,But is it not true due to our weakness we fall Constantly whether great or small.Hence we are told to be perfect as our Heavenly Father is .St Paul is saying the same thing in this passage.
---Emcee on 1/11/08

Emcee: Please explain Romans 6:23
"23For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in[a] Christ Jesus our Lord."
---Trish9863 on 1/11/08

If you have asked God's forgiveness, He has forgiven you. All to often Satan uses our guilt to haunt us. You could help others girls by sharing your story and offering them support to make the right decision.
---rraea8898 on 1/10/08

We have been warned all of our lives about sin. We commit sin and will have to live with the pain and guilt. Abortion is a terrible thing but you must put this behind you and move on. Confess and repent to God about this. Ask forgiveness and move on. You must learn from this terrible act and try not to repeat it. Forgiveness is the key.
---Robyn on 1/10/08

With due respect to those who claim that forgiveness is a free gift.why would you need to ask,it is your Right because it is Free.NO NO NO God sent you His only Begotten son who shed His human Life blood to Show you His way.You have to earn His love,Respect to obtain admittance to His kingdom"Be Perfect as Your Heavenly Father is perfect" Don't take God for Granted. This is what Satan wants God says "FOLLOW ME, I am the way,the truth the life."
---Emcee on 1/10/08

God's forgiveness cannot be earned, but is a gift, free of charge. All you need to do is ask God to forgive you of all your sins, and acknowledge that His Son, Jesus died for all of your sins, including the abortion. Ask Him to help you heal emotionally from the guilt and trauma you feel. He will forgive you, and will heal you. Then, ask Him how you can minister to other women who have done likewise.

Are you a christian? If not ask Jesus to forgive you All your sins and to come into your heart and be your Lord and Savior. He will forgive you, and he will never remember that sin again. And know this, that if you are saved, you will see your baby again. That is where he/she is at this very moment.
If you lay that burden down at his feet, He will give you peace. God loves you!
---a_good_friend on 1/9/08

Find Jesus' Spirit in the words that he speaks and the things he's done. (Watch- he's not done Matthew 24) Learn that Spirit and a time will come when you'll call out to that Spirit. Unlike any other human his words matched his walk without failure and his words are absolutely binding, God gave all judgment to Him (John 5:22)

Find forgiveness, your heart is good soil, learn Jesus' words and trade life (the way it is now) for his life, death, and resurrection unto glory.
Receive the Holy Spirit.
---Pharisee on 1/9/08

It's not what you are going through, Patta, but I'm always getting on the spot about if God still is with me and forgives me, etc. And I just stop and let Him decide what He really pleases to do with me, and then I don't trust any thinking or feelings that are not in His peace. Because what God gives you will be in His perfect and kind peace. Nothing else can be trusted. Colossians 3:15 > God is kind and personal.
---Bill_bila5659 on 1/9/08

Patta::Your actionhas a reaction this is what you are feeling has nothing to do with your sorrow & the forgiveness by God for your act.Only Time will heal this human self reproach.Pray for the removal of this indescretion.It is the equivalent to the loss of a child, and a part of You.

How can anything we say help? i think you know the blood of Christ is able. the problem is forgiving and loving yourself. when this comes up find a way to forgive yourself, everyday if you have to. read the psalms, anyone who has sinned or lost a child has alot in common with david. lastly seek comfort from the Holy Spirit and a strong body of belivers. I dont let my church family know all my failures but its good to have them to lean on.
---Kraus on 1/9/08

Listen here. If you have been bought by the Blood of Christ you are forgiven. It seems to me that you are truly sorry. You need to get on with your life in serving God. My goodness, if you read the Bible some of God's people did some pretty bad things. So!That is one of the many things that is so amazing about God, is Him putting up with His own people, when we at times fall so short. But still He loves us. I do not understand it.
---catherine on 1/9/08

please i beg you dont become a faith by works person its not how this work. Christ never told me if you do this things will happen. What could i possibley offer Jesus, I have nothing for him. Instead you have to forgive yourself Jesus forgave you before you committed that sin. He forgave you when he put his only son Jesus in the place of you on that cross
---Rosalie on 1/9/08

Was it an abortion or miscarriage.
Some women have a hard time recovering from either one of them, and spend the rest of their days in a very sad state.
It's doubtful that they'll let you into an abortion clinic, especially if they sense you're not altogether whole. They would probably call the cops and/or haul you off where you can receive some treatment for 72 hours. Do you need to go to the hospital and see a doctor?

Just know that no matter how you 'feel' God has forgiven you already.
---sue on 1/9/08

On the cross of Calvary God paid for all sin. Would the word all would include abortion? Go again to God in prayer, ask him for forgiveness which he has promised he wouldn give and ask him to take away your guilt and pain. It is my prayer that the Lord would make your forgiveness real to your mind and heart.
---Mima on 1/9/08

Patta55555, Dear one, GOD knows that you are sorry for the abortion, He is glad that you regret it, it shows you are not hardened about the sin. GOD is READY and WANTING to forgive you. Ask Him to forgive you and express to Him your regret and acknowledgement that it was a sin against Him and the baby. GOD is taking care of your child in Heaven with HIs angels. If you will be Saved, you will reconcile with your beloved child!
