Module Seven: Joy Comes in the Mourning
It’s a powerful step to name your aborted child(ren) and to grieve their loss and have an honoring service to remember their presence in your life. This step can lead to deeper healing and letting go of this pain by giving it over to God. This process is outlined in Isaiah 43:18-19 NIV – Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.
The lessons in this module will provide more details about heaven and what your eventual meeting with your child could be like. God promised us in Psalms 126: 5-6 that – Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy. Those who go out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with them.
Also outlined are potential future triggers of post-abortion pain and ways to tame them that will help you process future emotions relating to your lost child(ren).
