From Anxiety to Peace
by April Hymen
Sandy* came to the PASSAGES Post Abortion bible study support group to seek healing from her abortion of 20 years ago. No one in her family knew and she finally accepted the tug on her heart from the Lord to receive His healing touch. She shared how afraid she was of her family finding out and her fear of having an anxiety attack during group. These were the two things that had kept her from joining the bible study for years. After we prayed together she made a decision to start the group and let the Lord show her the best time to share with her family; especially her husband.
Several weeks into the bible study Sandy shared how she had told her husband over the weekend about her abortion. His reaction was one of love and support. Her countenance and smile were bright as she shared. One of her greatest fears had been conquered!
During our last night together I commented that no one had left the group during any of our weeks together. Sandy told us that she had never realized how her abortion had been the trigger for her anxiety attacks for so many years. Now that she made the connection and found healing, she has learned to worry less, trust God more, and rarely experiences anxiety attacks any longer. Praise the Lord!
Now is the time to take the first step to your healing!
If you are post-abortive or know someone who is please come and join this confidential, non-judgmental, compassionate and caring group, experience God’s Grace and be “Forgiven and Set Free.”
