Coming to terms with the pain, guilt, and grief of an abortion
Forgiven and Set Free
, an inspired Bible study that can be used by individual women or by a group, effectively ministers God's healing grace to women who are suffering remorse and guilt after an abortion.
This study was developed out of Linda Cochrane's experience of being freed from the bondage of guilt and grief that followed her abortion. "As I read my Bible, Christ was faithful to touch my open wounds with the healing touch of his promises, " she writes. "He promised to turn all my wailing into dancing and he has." Forgiven and Set Free
guides suffering and hurting women to bring their emotional scars from abortion "out of the dark past and into his holy light," where true and lasting healing can take place. Appropriate Scriptures help women deal with issues such as
- relief and denial
- letting go
