This past spring I was asked to share my testimony. I wrote, and wrote, and re-wrote. This was a very difficult process for me because of my sinful past. But one sin that was a little more difficult to publicly admit was the sin of abortion. But God showed me through a dream that all was forgiven.
Early one morning I awoke from this dream sobbing;
There was a woman showing me a beautiful little boy about 3-4 years old. I was kneeling down talking to him, then I had the sense that they were leaving to go to heaven. As they left I had the sudden realization that the boy was my son and I began to weep, that's when I awoke and I knew that he came to comfort me and to let me know that I was forgiven.
That one sin had burdened me for my entire adult life, and I now have the understanding that God has forgiven me.
What's your burden? Are you allowing your past to keep you from growing in your relationship with God?
James 5:16 (KJV) Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
