Your faith has made you well

Mark 5:34 “And he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace, and be healed of your disease.”

It has been 20 years ago today that I chose to have an abortion. My life was a cyclone of addiction,abuse, and a heart that was terribly broken from my dysfunctional life. I was a very hurting girl who needed guidance and love. I was lost and felt alone. The thought of even knowing God seemed weird and foreign to me. I thought this was the life I was destined to live feeling trapped in dysfunction and pain.

Looking back today I can not believe that was me. I was so lost and had a hardened heart full of pain. I was at the point of death and then I met Jesus. Having allowed Jesus into my life is when the transformation started to happen over time. He worked on me slowly and allowed me to trust him completely so he could complete a work in my life. I surrendered to him and allowed him to cleanse my heart and restore me to be the woman he created me to be.

Dear Jesus,

I thank you for loving me and for healing my heart. I pray for all people who are suffering that they would turn to you for healing and comfort. Without you we can not be healed, we need you. Amen.
