This past week, as I was rummaging through some old family heirlooms given to me by my father, I came across a large wooden chest belonging to my late grandfather. By the looks of the solid layer of dust, it clearly had not been touched in probably decades. Its intricate design and beautiful craftsmanship lured me to peek inside. As I lifted the latch and pulled up on the lid, it let out a loud creak. When I looked inside the chest, it was mostly empty except for a few old pictures and some treasured keepsakes.
This got me thinking about how our minds can be like this wooden chest. We can keep memories, especially painful ones, hidden away in our minds for a long time. Sometimes we think it is better to keep the painful thoughts locked inside so that they cannot hurt us. Sometimes, we choose to visit the memories for a short while only to shut them back inside again. However, it is only when these memories see the light and are processed through, that we can finally heal from them.
What memories do you struggle with deep inside that you may have tucked away so no one else can see? What emotional pain may you be hiding underneath the surface? Many times, our clients come to us seeking help with processing through the emotions that surface after having had an abortion. They say things like,
“I feel I need to finally talk about what I have done. I am seeking forgiveness.”
“I want help with anxiety and depression from a past abortion.”
“I need to recover from my abortion experience and learn how to grieve.”
“I want to learn how to navigate my feelings. I need to be guided through this darkness into the light of forgiveness.”
If you can relate to these statements, please know there is hope and healing available. Restore has been effectively helping post abortive women and men find healing in their lives for over 15 years.
