Abortion healing and recovery is possible. Having an abortion and regretting it later is a common experience felt by women. While what has been done cannot be undone, you can experience healing and...

My heart goes out to you, and in my spirit I feel the weight and pain of your heart, the sadness, regret and self loathing. You are not alone, for thus saith the Lord "I know your heart and your pain and sorrow, I see your struggle from this burden, come to me child come to me pour your heart out to me and I will heal you, I will heal and bear your burden. "

I want you to know that the price has ben paid and God has excepted the sacrifice, that Jesus(praise His name forever) sits at the right hand of the father making intersession for you. He sits because the work is done. 

I know you think that this is something that is so terrible He could not possibly forgive or heal you from but receive this, the fact that you acknowledge this and are seeking Him is proof of your being accepted because he has opened your eyes He has given you understanding the world can not receive or understand.

But you must heal and that will take time and many tears for you, not Him. One of the hardest things sometimes is to forgive ourselves forgive but don't forget, remember how it happened what led up to it and learn, flee those traps and snares the enemy has set for our us.

You must learn to forgive yourself,Your baby is I the bosom of our loving savior and if you make your stand and be true you will get to meet him on that day when we all stand before God and the books are opened. Never forget we are redeemed at great cost and nothing can separate you from the love of God. Not height not depth not things in heaven or on this earth

You received a word from the spirit meditate upon it remember it your faith will be a shield when then enemy tries to undermine you and read your Bible. Do not think God does not want you, consider Moses He murdered a man and yet God used him in a mighty way because he humbled himself.

Your confession is just as precious, God is not a respecter or people He knows no bias, what He does for one He will do for you, seek counseling from Gods ministers there are many, many who live in hope of helping and assisting you in your healing process. We are members many but one body If you want you can call me and we will pray together and you will see He loves you. He is out hope, our healer and our high tower an ever present help in times of trouble. Maranatha

The Bible is filled with promises of forgiveness for the sinner if she (or he) will repent and turn back to obedience. 
Abortion is not a temptation only a challenge for the young and unmarried. The World Health organisation states that if all sexually active people used contraception each time they had intercourse there would still be 6 million unplanned pregnancies every year. God designed us to procreate and He is the Giver of Life. Abortion brings a sense of heartache and loss that is relational, physical and spiritual. It is an attack against your own body and the life God has permitted inside you. It also brings grief in a social and religious context that allows little sharing or comfort. Women who have aborted may find short term relief but long term sorrow. Comfort and healing is found in the God who forgives when His people confess their sin and return to Him. However, God often allows us to be tested more than once on a point where we have failed to trust Him. It is worth studying the Bible for promises of His provision so if you fall pregnant again, you may be able to trust in his care over you.

I believe the answer to this question can be answered with the following life-changing information:

Our Pastor Rev. Hicks, recently made some very profound statements in a broadcasted sermon. 
As the Crucifixion scene was being described, we were asked what each portion of the Blood of Jesus was for. What was the Blood from His Feet for? So we could have Blood to walk in His Footsteps, What was the Blood from His Hands for? So we could have Blood to cover our Service to Him and to others. 

Then we were asked, 

What was the Water from His Side for?

You must understand that when you come to the Cross of Calvary, asking forgiveness of ANY sin, Jesus freely forgives! This is His Promise!
It takes only His Blood to forgive you!

Yet the stain in our memory of that sin, what erases that? We can still remember the sin! The enemy still whispers, "look what you did.." and because the stain is still there, we still feel GUILT! Jesus has freely forgiven us because we confessed and we asked Him to. But we still feel guilty.. 

Jesus was wounded in His Side, and Blood and Water gushed forth. WHY?
To cleanse the stain of sin from our memory! John 19:34

When I think about ANY sin that I have ever committed, I ask Jesus to forgive me, I ask for His Blood to cover the sin, and then I ask for the Water of His Side to wash the stain from my memory. Then I thank Him for All He has done for me. How He has brought me from a mighty long way. Tears of Gratitude and Appreciation for my Saviour roll down my cheeks in love for Him. 

How Liberating! How Healing! To God BE ALL The GLORY!

Be Blessed,

First John 3:20 For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart. 

First John 3:23 And this is His commandment, that we should believe on the name of His Son, Jesus Christ, and love one another. 

All of our sin debt has been paid in full, and we can never be condemned again. John 3:18, But, we can lose our rewards in heaven if we continue to live in sin. 

None of us are sinless. First John 1:8 If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves and the TRUTH is not in us.

So we are to forgive one another even as Christ has forgiven us. Colossians 2:13. We are to bear one another's burdens even as Christ has forgiven us.

Have you ever noticed that unsaved people are more compassionate on people who have an abortion or go through a divorce than saved people many times?

Many times believers who go through an abortion carry that burden for the rest of their lives. But time heals all wounds. We can not do like we do on our computers and refresh. What is past is past, and we can not change that.

God has provided us a comforter through the Gift of the Holy Spirit who will never leave us or forsake us. Hebrews 13:5. He will never cast us out.. John 6:37.

So even when all your friends condemn you and leave you, we have a friend that sticks closer than a brother. Jesus knows how weak we are, and loves us so much that He died for every sin we could ever commit. First John 2:2.

He may chasten us for a little while, but he has forgiven us all trespasses. 

One thing you can be assured of as a believer, you will see that aborted baby in heaven.
