Difficulties. It certainly doesn’t take long before one encounters difficulties in life. But, have you found when you do go through a difficulty, later on, you realize there was some benefit of going through it? Difficulties can cause a change in us, refocus our lives, and further strengthen us for the next challenge that comes!
As French philosopher Jean De La Bruyere once said, “Out of difficulties grow miracles.” I truly believe that and see it frequently in the lives of Restore After Abortion clients. Many times, they will come to us unable to cope with their past abortion decisions and feeling there is no hope for change.
However, as they begin the program and experience the safe, nonjudgmental, and compassionate setting, they are able to truly open up about the pain, guilt, and grief they are carrying. Week by week, the burden is slowly lifted off and they are able to reconcile what has happened. It is in these sessions that discouragement is replaced with encouragement, hopelessness is replaced by hope, and brokenness is replaced with wholeness. And, ultimately, a transformation takes place resulting in healing!
