I had an abortion because I was petrified that my child would suffer disabilities as a result of my working unprotected at a veterinary clinic with animals receiving X-rays, and also because I was using alcohol and drugs.
My experience at the abortion clinic was traumatizing. At the facility, I baptized my child by making the sign of the cross, using water from the procedure room sink, in the Name of The FATHER, SON, and The HOLY SPIRIT. I was filled with regret before, during and after the procedure.
My mental, physical and spiritual health declined progressively. Although I had asked GOD countless times for forgiveness, I did not feel forgiven. After about 2 years, I confessed to a priest and experienced some relief of conscious. At approximately age 35, a Priests for Life priest came to my church and I received information about "The Silent No More Campaign" which gave me hope of someday receiving complete forgiveness.
At age 49, I received a prophetic prayer of deliverance from a pastor, during which the peace of The HOLY SPIRIT came upon me. At age 50, GOD spoke to me in a dream and after 2 additional months, I shared my testimony with my daughter. Since then, I have experienced complete deliverance and a beautiful and miraculous healing and blessing. Now at 50.5 years I have no doubt that as we are truly repentant:
"If we confess our sins, HE is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. " 1 John 1:9
As a recipient of GOD's supernatural forgiveness and miracles, through the blood of JESUS, I hope to encourage, comfort and strengthen others to find HIS joy, who came that we may have abundant life on earth and eternal life in HIS Presence.
